  1. Compatability with MS OneNote, use on iPad and Surface simultaneously

    I use OneNote on my Surface 3 and like it very much. Unfortunately the iOS version, which I also would like to use on my iPad and MacBook Pro is not compatible, why? Insofar OneNote on iOS devices makes no sense, when also using MS products. iOS enables MS transfers, why not the other way (pages-word/ numbers-excel)?

  3. Edit text with VoiceOver active

    When VoiceOver is active on your iPhone/iPad you cannot double-tap on a text field in order to make it editable, i e make it receive input from the virtual keyboard or an external Bluetooth keyboard.
    This makes OneNote impossible to use for taking notes. You can read and navigate existing notes with VoiceOver active so it shouldn't be hard to fix this.

  4. Grading on ipad

    Would love to speed grade students assignments in their class notebooks. Something that tells me how many papers I have to grade and then it will open the next ungraded after I annotate and assign the grade. ( which will automatically update in PowerSchool, since class notebooks is linked). This needs to be faster than grading actual paper.

  5. Limiting system memory use

    I use OneNote in an educational setting. My students rapidly run out of memory on their phones as the size of their OneNote class notebooks gets larger as the year progresses. Having the option to keep some pages 'cloud only' would free up a large amount of device memory.

  6. Twitter extension

    Refine the Twitter extension so all the content of the tweet is added, not just a link.

  7. OneNote continually prompts to sign in

    I am experiencing a repeated issue where OneNote on iPhone 5s running the latest ios 9.3.1 continually prompts me to sign in when syncing or adding new information to a Notebook. This only started in the last week after a number of recent OneNote updates. Please fix this bug. Thank you.

  8. Sync with PC directly

    Syncing through OneDrive is not authorized by my company. The happy middle would be to sync selected sections with a PC directly via iTunes application. The PDF by email is not a viable solution due to editing losses.

  9. integrate with Google Keep or mimic it with post-it notes that can be attached to any notebook or page.

    esp. on Smartphones there's a need for small notes like in Google Keep.

  10. Add ability to link pictures

    If I insert an picture/image, I would like to add a link to that image on the iPad version. Appears this needs to be added.

  11. Classroom Notebooks for iPad and Windows 10 Mobile

    Need to be able to use Classroom notebooks on the iPad. Is there going to be an update for this in the future? I can't figure out how to load the Add on to the iPad version of OneNote. Also can't add it to my Windows phone.

  13. special view mode on tablet & smartphone so that a text box won't move

    While on a large screen it's ok to view many text boxs, on a smaller screen the User should be able to zoom in on one text box & work in it without it being moved around, like a Google Keep note or iCloud notes.

  14. Reset button for accidental moves

    You should add a reset button so if you type "sausages" and accidentaly remove it, you can press reset and your last move resets(so that the word comes back)

  16. Wider dictation button

    For the iPhone please consider giving the dictation button - just to the left of the Space bar - say 1/8" more width. It's hard to hit it just right when on the move. I use OneNote to dictate notes when exercising. Thanks. (Using iPhone 5S)

  17. Add a bouton to block the appearance of keybord by touching screen

    The screen is sometimes so sensible, the keybord always appears while I touching the screen, so maybe you can add a bouton to block the keybord, and double touche to active edit the note.

  18. Track Changes!!

    It's something basic that exists in MS Word already, just please give OneNote the ability to do that; especially given that this app is used so frequently for collaboration! Wouldn't you wanna see what other collaborators have changed or done?

  19. The keyboard pops up MUCH TOO EASILY when scrolling thorugh a note

    In the iPad version, the keyboard pops up almost every time a gesture is used to scroll the screen. This makes the user dismiss the keyboard to continue, only to have it pop up again because of another simple scroll gesture.

    The keyboard popup is WAY TOO SENSITIVE!

    Either make it more deliberate, or provide a mechanism to prevent inadvertent keyboard popups, e.g., a "display keyboard" button.

    The current implementation is way too distracting and inefficient!

  20. Onenote for Apple Watch - List capability

    Well it looks great but its def version 1 but with a little extra could be abs brilliant. Its two big downfalls are that that theres no control of what it displays (it currently shows the most recent notes accessed) and theres also no list/bullet option. (every recording (which works great) generates a new quicknote section so you end up with lots of separate notes) If it had a a complete (tick) option for lists it would be ideal.
    So to start if it could support a todo list and point to a specific page, then it would be constantly…
