    • Search all my notebooks on OneNote Online

      Onedrive online search: this is desperately missing on the online function. I have so many folders and the lack of search feature is crippling on the online version. Please add (I usually sign into onedrive which strangely can search my onenote and then locate the file that way)

      • Enable sharing of individual sections or pages

        it would be great to be able to create a shared notebook and then easily (with one right click) restrict access to certain sections or pages

        • Online: Ability to search for Tags

          Please add the ability to search for tags as you can in the desktop versions.

          Also support the idea of tags being collated on separate tabs EG, to-dos, sprinkled amongst meeting notes getting summarized in one place. Ideally all tags on a tab would get sorted and summarized on a page in the tab.

            • Setting to add new notes to top of section

              When I add a new note in the OneNote apps or OneNote Online, the new note is created at the bottom of the section. Id like to see the default configurable. Placing new, recent notes at the top of the section makes more sense because they are in the forefront of your thoughts, ideas, plans.
              Then when I access or create notes across all devices, my most recent notes and thoughts are immediately accessible when I open the section.

              • Insert from OneDrive

                It will be more efficient to insert files directly from OneDrive into OneNote. You have this option for Microsoft Forms and Exel. This way, I do not have to open my OneDrive, download the file from OneDrive, then insert it into OneNote.

                • Syntax highlighting for code blocks

                  Having a "code" formatting scheme that allows users to drag and drop code snippets would really be useful. I often make step-by-step guides that involves a brief explanation followed by a code snippet, primarily for personal use. As onenote does not support a 'code' mode, I end up using many 1x1 tables (to get a bounding box) and type text in "Courier New". This approach is not only painful, it is language-agnostic, hence does not have colorful syntax highlighting

                  Google sites has a "code" formatting option which makes it easy to insert code blocks into a webpage. Onenote could support…

                            When creating a table in OneNote, it would be great if we could merge cells. Even copying a table from Word will split up the cells.

                                  It would be great if OneNote integrated with Slack (http://slack.com). Our entire company workflow is performed through Slack and it already integrates with all of the other products we use.

                                      Going back to onedrive to do one thing and another somewhere else is too much. Slows down the process.

                                      • Lock

                                        I need a lock or password protect button for the page. It's not really for secrecy or anything, it's just that whenever I open my notes on my mobile devise, I inadvertently erase some stuff because the note is so 'responsive' and would give me drop-down menu on what to do with it. Most of the time, I just want to read/review what i had written and not do anything. Having a lock would prevent erasure.

                                          I noticed you have the draw function. It would be extremely helpful to be able to drag and drop certain shape sizes, such as box's, rectangles, circles etc.. This will help keep notes more organized and add a more aesthetically pleasing format to notes. This is something that multiple people utilizing OneNote could benefit from.
