Multitasking Support for multiple OneNote or even Split Screen for multiple notebooks/pages
We should be able to open multiple OneNote windows and have them run side by side using iOS multitasking. This would be a really nice feature since you can open multiple pages/notebooks/sections/etc at one time on any PC or Mac but not being able to do this really limits the functionality. Even being able to have a split screen option to have two separate pages open at one time would be immensely helpful.
I don't think ms devs care much for "multi-taskers". They can't even keep the keyboard open on the iPhone when switching apps/ viewing other apps, you know, for "note taking". Sounds good, doubt they could implement it.

I’m a user for a long time on the desktop and I wouldn’t like to change to a different application for the lack of a feature that’s so simple to implement on the iPad. The split screen feature saves us a great amount of time and it’s such a useful tool for who needs to multitask.
I’m probably going to switch to notability soon because it supports this feature which I need to be able take concise notes while marking up a pdf. I hope OneNote will add this feature so I don’t have to!

iPadOS supports multiple instances of the same app (see Safari for example). Would love to have OneNote for iPad utilize this native OS feature.
