  1. Templates in UWP

    If you're going to remove OneNote from Office 2019 and recommend people use the less full featured OneNote UWP app...you need to add pageTemplates from OneNote 2016/365 to the UWP app.

    All functionality for Page Templates,
    Creating a template
    Saving a template
    Using a Template as default for a note section

    • Include OneNote for Desktop in Office 2019

      I really like the desktop lay-out with notebooks on the left, sections on top and pages on the right. I tried the UWP version, and while perfectly suited for use on a tablet (with a reduced number of - bigger - buttons), I feel it misses too many features to replace the desktop version.

      So please include OneNote in the new Office 2019 suite!

          • OneNote Outlook Tasks Integration

            1. I'd like existing OneNote 2016 & 2010 feature "Insert Outlook Task" be included in OneNote for Windows 10
            2. I'd like OneNote Linked tasks be available at my Android mobile device.

            • Keep Outlook Integration In OneNote for Windows (Like 2016)

              One of the most powerful feature is the ability to tag things as Outlook Tasks. Also the ability to create a OneNote page from a meeting. These features are the heart and soul of OneNote.

                • Integrate Onenote with the SUBTASKS and with the NOTES of the tasks (not only with the tasks)

                  The perfect way to synchronize tasks such as Outlook or Microsoft To Do ones with Onenote it is as follows:

                  Notes of the tasks:
                  • If the task is in the title of the onenote page, make the content of the page sync as the note of the task.
                  • If the task is in any paragraph, make their indented paragraphs sync as the note of the task.

                  Subtasks:
                  • If the task is in the title of the onenote page, make the tasks that are in the content of the page sync as the subtasks.
                  • If the task…

                  • Send to OneNote from Outlook

                    Outlook allows me to "copy" an e-mail via "Send to OneNote" into a page. This is only working with the OneNote 2016 desktop app. It would be great if I could send an e-mail to the UWP OneNote app.

                      • Incorporate To-Do

                        I want to be able to create lists and arrange them and prioritize the actions with a drag and drop capability. It would be nice to see if Microsoft could incorporate it's To-Do app into OneNote or build a similar functionality natively into OneNote. Priorities change constantly and giving the user the ability to arrange items on a list with drag and drop rather than cut and paste would be so much more helpful.

                            It would be really helpful if you could rotate inserted PDFs in OneNote. Currently, the "Rotate" button is grayed out.

                              The current options are either unlimited width & height or fixed with & height.
                              Can we have an option of fixed width and unlimited height.

                              Use case: Create notes that can be printed without affecting the size.

                              • Add Transparency Options on Pens!

                                It would be amazing if you could add a transparency option to the pen selection.
                                This way it would function exactly like an Highlighter but it would have a rounded edge, much neater than the highlight version and way easier to manipulate when used to fill and outline things!

                                In alternative, just add the option to choose different highlight shapes!

                                      So we can add events to the calendar from onenote or from calendar to onenote, same integration as outlook for mail and calendar... only you would need to add tasks or something more automatic and intuitive as google goals. Checkout goals and reminders with google and how you can make it more intuitive by using onenote and tasks, events, and so on in mail and calendar. Whether or not you will merge these ideas into tasks I don't know but you can always make another more automatic option such as goal tracking, while tasks is more about progress. Would be…

                                        You can't possibly be serious??? How can you not have a replace text function in OneNote??? This is crazy!!!

                                        Please add this function ASAP

                                        • Include number list style 1.1, 1.1.1 etc.

                                          Please implement the 1.1, 1.1.1, 1.1.2 format for number lists. This is the most common list style I use in Word (for content pages etc.) and I don't understand why it is not available in OneNote.
