  1. Multi-shot camera instead of having to approve each photo individually.

    The worst thing about all cloud services and most apps is that you can only take one picture at a time with camera. Each photo requires your approval before it is saved.

    Add the ability to take multiple shots at one time. Evernote has this feature. I want to go exclusively with OneNote but it is still missing some key features that I need.

  2. Apple Watch app: Show full page and basic paragraph styles

    I do have pages with checklists with several sections. There's only the first section up to the next Heading 1 displayed. Everything else has been trimmed.

    Additionally you can't tell a Heading 1 from list items as everything has the same style. There should be some basic representation of different styles on the Apple Watch.

  4. [Be able to draw on the images] Poder dibujar sobre las imagenes

    Poder dibujar sobre las imagenes. Sería genial poder dibujar círculos o resaltar cosas en las imágenes con los dedos y escogiendo el color.

  5. Enable voiceover

    Give users the ability to use iOS's built in voiceover tools in OneNote so we can have text within a page read aloud.

  6. Clipping a recipe in iOS using the sharing should work like the web clipper.

    I attempted to clip a recipe from chow.com using Safari and the Sharing to OneNote option. I ended up with a OneNote entry that was just a blob of JavaScript.

    It would be great if the sharing to OneNote worked like the web clipper, so it would have clipped the recipe instead of a JavaScript blob.

  7. iOS: Better app integration

    When in the likes of safari, when you've loaded a pdf and click 'Open In' you are given the option to open it in various apps, OneNote not being one of them. I'd like to be able to print PDFs (and other documents) to a page in OneNote. OneNote doesn't integrate with hardly any apps on iOS, and with the iOS 8 developer preview - which has new APIs allowing different apps to interact in more ways - available to developers, I'd like to have the ability to print to OneNote, send data to OneNote, etc. straight from my iPhone.

  8. iPhone: Ability to indent pages

    The ability to indent pages (like you can do on OneNote for Windows) by touching the page of interest and sliding left or right, or by tapping and holding then being given a menu with the options.

  9. Quick Notes in current rev is ruined by change in "add" feature

    I need a function which adds a note in a fixed known location, so later in the day I can go back and find them all and get things properly allocated and organized. The "+" key on the iphone has lost it's ability to place that note in the Quick Note section regardless of your current location. (It now asks what TYPE of content to create, rather than WHERE to create it.) This change as ruined the concept of quick notes - it's no longer quick.

  10. Update your help files when you introduce a new feature

    As soon as I saw OneNote performs OCR I got it and prepared to ditch Evernote. Immediately I took a photo of a mind map with my iPhone OneNote app and set it as a whiteboard. Now I don't know what to do. No help anywhere.

  11. Q&A option

    A good way of remembering and studying ideas is a "question & answer" feature where the answer can be hidden and set to appear when needed. This can be done by having the option to create a Q&A Page that has alternating bands of space where a question can be written and and the asnwer below. when finished the answer bands can be collapsed and hidden so they can appear when an answer symbol is touched before soon disappearing.

    As a university student i know this would be useful for all students that can create their own practice exams and…

  12. Please bring back the zoom

    When taking pictures of white boards and documents it would be great if we could zoom in, and so not have to crop later.
    This used to be allowed but it was removed in the most recent update

  13. Please ensure that all platform versions of one note are accessible. I am unable to insert text while using voice over in the iOS version

    One note on iOS 9 is not very accessible. I use voice over and am unable to properly interact with the app. I cannot get a keyboard or have the ability to input text. I don't think I can insert anything else either.

  16. Remember location when opening from Dropbox on the iPad app

    When opening PDF files from Dropbox within the iPad app it resets to the root/main folder every time I add more from Dropbox, this is tedious because I have to navigate back to the folder in which the PDF files are.

    Please remember the current Dropbox location between saves/opens/inserts.

  17. To add other languages' fonts like MS Word

    I need to make notes in English, my mother tongue Nepalese, Urdu and Arabic too. So if I am able to make notes in my iPad in these languages by adding respective languages' fonts then it'll be a great help for me. Or if you habe any other better idea then please let me know. I can't take my laptop to each and every place where I go and use MS Word in it.

  18. [not alienating customers] Kunden nicht verprellen

    Meine Idee: Kunden nicht mit Gewalt verprellen. Habe heute das neueste Update aufgespielt, und plötzlich kann ich meine Notizbücher nicht mehr verwenden. Plötzlich brauche ich ein kostenpflichtiges Abo. Und das ohne Vorwarnung! Hallo Microsoft! Braucht ihr keine zufriedenen Kunden? Wollt ihr die Leute mit Gewalt verprellen? Ich bin einfach nur fassungslos. Wenn ihr mich wenigstens gewarnt hättet. Jetzt kann ich mit Zeitdruck bis morgen eine neue Lösung suchen. Und um ehrlich zu sein: ich glaube nicht, dass Onenote da noch irgendwie verwendbar ist. Ich bin so enttäuscht. Ihr seid so unprofessionell, es ist unglaublich.

  19. Post-it plus (new app from 3M) type technology

    There is a new app from 3M called post-it plus. It can easily discern individual stickies from a cluster. Having capability to import to a onenote notebook (Evernote has this) or having this capability in the app itself would be AWESOME and productive.

  20. Easier way to make sure all your devices open all notebooks you work in

    After restoring my iPhone I had to click on each of the notebooks in my desktop OneNote to create a link to then email to myself so I could open on my iPhone and link within the OneNote app.

    Of course I can link my organizational and personal OneDrive accounts but this is the only way I know to open notebooks others own.

    I've also had to restore my Surface and try to remember all the notebooks people shared with me and then ask them to share with me again.... is there an easier way to manage this?
