  1. Turn off autoplay for embedded videos in Onenote Online

    Autoplay of videos in Onenote Online pages now happens I think since google changed their default settings. Whilst other types of embedded objects should autoplay, videos should not. Maybe a setting to change this behaviour.

      • Add a lock or password protection to Notebooks, Sections, and Pages independently

        Based on what others have said, it appears at least two types of locks would be ideal. One for privacy, and another which allows you to view the note, but not make any changes. Would be especially great for the mobile app.

        On another note, backing up notebooks through the mobile app in classic Windows fashion would be fascinating. Imagine this: you back up a notebook, and it creates a folder with the name of the notebook. Within this folder are other folders, one for each Section of the notebook, and inside of these folders are the independent files, or…

        • Set Picture as Background

          I would like to see the option to put images, powerpoint slides, and pdfs in the background so that we can type on top of it. I know this is present on the downloadable version, but I can't bring my desktop to school and I don't have a laptop, so being able to do this on onenote online will be a big help

          • Have all features of OneNote Desktop version available in OneNote Online or mobile versions

            It would be easier to take notes during meetings at work if all the functionality in the desktop version was available at least in the online version of OneNote, specifically converting handwritten notes to text.

            • Please make the section and page layout like the one in office 365.

              I love the layout of OneNote in office 365. It optimizes workspace and is still colorful and easy to use.

              But then in the online and mobile versions, it takes up a whole lot of space on the left side and even when I go and make it smaller every time I use the online one, I feel like I have no workspace. I realize that others might like it the way it is, but it would more than make my day if there were a way to choose your layout.

                      • For OneNote Class Notebook: Sorting of Pupil Notebooks

                        It would be really helpful if you could have only 1 class notebook for all of your sections, but be able to divide pupil notebooks into larger sections. As of right now, each pupil is a different section and all of my sections are grouped together. They are also listed alphabetically by their FIRST name. Is it possible to do 2 things: (1) Organize the pupils into individual sections based on their class sections yet keep the class notebook the same (that way you do not have to post the same thing to multiple notebooks) and (2) organize the students…

                        • Please turn off auto-capitalization or give us the option to turn it off.

                          It is a great interruption and annoyance to constantly be editing and fighting OneNote's insistence on making the first letter of a line or bullet point into a capital letter.

                          Here are a few cases where many users would not want a capital letter at the start of a line:

                          passwords
                          email addresses
                          scientific terms
                          citations
                          poetry

                          We are not idiots who can't use a shift button. Please give us control of how text appears in OneNote. Mandatory auto-correct features become constant problems for many users, and make the app LESS functional for us.

                          • Filter tag search in "Find Tags" search

                            When using the Find Tags function, you should be able to filter the tags. IE...Look for JUST the "Accommodations" tag in all notebooks/sections. Currently, you GROUP by the Tag, but you can't search for just one or more specific tags.

                                I really desperately need SORT options for pages, sections, and notebooks. I noticed in various forums that there are numerous requests for this since a long time....but no response yet from Microsoft....Also the Onetastic tool & plug-ins are considered unsafe by both Windows 10 and Norton etc.,. So what are my options really? I am also a premium member and expect some basic features from Microsoft....

                                    • Hide Navigation

                                      If you are writing on the pages of a notebook, have an option to hide the navigation plane (and keep it hidden) until you turn it off. Otherwise, have an automatic hide of navigation plane and it activates when the mouse is hovered over the navigation area. When this is projected to a classroom 1/3 of the screen is the navigation plane.

                                      • Onenote: A Notebook belongs in the pocket! Please make a Offline Button available (for all devices)

                                        A Notebook belongs in the pocket! It has been like this for the last 500 years!
                                        Use cases:

                                        -- Holiday notes, no Network reception, no offline download of Sections, complete Notebook, page, etc.

                                        --Holiday notes, no Power on Mobile Device, means no Cache of Onenote Pages, means not functional!

                                        -- Alpine Area, Hiking, no network, no map visible in Onenote.. dangerous!

                                        Please make a Offline Button available (for all devices)

                                        By the way: Action Sync Notebook does not do what is says!

                                        • My internet provider is slowing down my service. I hope you guys are on board to protect net neutrality, because if my internet gets slower,

                                          Protect Net neutrality, because once my service gets slower, and it becomes slower for me to access my office 365, then I am going back to using my computer hard drive PRONTO!
