  1. Allow @mention in all notes and tasks

    It would be nice to allow @mention for naming the right persons in a note, for tasks, but even for every note you create. This will help to find persons in a right way (without typo's) and find all tasks related to a person.

    • 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…

              • Make UK English available on all Office 365 products - as both a default language and spellcheck language.

                I'm from the UK, I would like to be able to select UK English rather than American English as a default language for display, spelling etc.

                  • Merging notes and drag/drop

                    I would like One Note to be able to
                    A) Allow me to merge notes, pick the order of data inside them and interact as if it was a DTP operation.
                    B) Drag and drop from a notebook to another
                    C) Unify the experience between One Note and One Note 2016. It is impossible to open the same notes and look in the same places. One Note prioritizes the cloud. One Note 2016 works also offline.

                          Would be great to make it way easier to move notes around note books, and even allow multiple selections.

                            Make it possible to organize the pages in OneNote so users can either arrange the notes by alpha order, date, size, etc.

                            Also, I would be fantastic if right mouse clicks would work for copy & paste.

                            • 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.

                                  • Need shorter URLs from OneNote Online.

                                    The URLs from OneNote are way WAY too long, sometimes over 300 characters.

                                    Putting URLs in Excel, for example, you are limited to a URL 256 characters long, so you cannot add OneNote URLs to Excel, which would be great for documentation purposes.

                                    When you paste a URL into Excel's Link box then click it, you usually just wind up at the OneNote notebook, but not the note that should have been specifically linked to.

                                    • Markdown support

                                      It would be kinda neat if there was markdown support for OneNote like StackEdit. It's easier to do programming/engineering notes in markdown as its faster to make headings, quotes, definitions and code blocks.

                                      I love onenote, but it's just too slow to still resort to slow word/rich text formatting when you're trying to keep up with the prof in a lecture or a TA in a tutorial.

                                      It should be optional to make a note markdown friendly so only the users who want to use it may use it.

                                      • Image rotate (90 degree)

                                        Simple image rotation would allow us to fix up when Office Lens gets the orientation wrong on an uploaded photo.
