    • Prevent students from accidentally deleting sections in Collaboration Space

      I have team sections in the Collaboration Space that change, and a student accidentally deleted another team's section on the desktop version that she had just been given permission status to. There should be some way that the student access should be blocked from permanently deleting content in this section.

      • Insert Group Forms in OneNote

        Need the ability to insert Microsoft Forms group forms in OneNote. When I try to insert a form I'm allowed to insert Forms that exist in MyForms. I'm NOT given the option to insert group forms.

        • Right Click option "New Section Group" when on existing section group

          When we right click on an existing section group - there should also be an option to create a section group (= below the parent section group)

            • Make the show all navigation option available for OneNote for Windows.

              The option is always grayed out and support says its the version.

                These are all stuck as grey in UWP. I preferred them coloured in 2016.

                  • Option for maintaining formatting in immersive reader

                    While I know immersive reader is meant to strip everything down to just text, sometimes formatting such as headings and bullet points are used in a way that makes it much clearer to read. I would like a toggle to keep bullets / numbers, and one for headings.

                    • Put an option for columns in immersive reader

                      Columns are much easier to scan down without having to move your eyes over so much of the page and keep track of your location. I would have this under Line Focus with the ability to choose from different widths.

                        Having Notebook, Section, and page is not enough levels of hierarchy. I continue to find situations where I need more levels of hierarchy so that I can categorize pages into more levels

                        • For the option of switching

                          Can you please have to where if I choose Spanish it stays on Spanish language instead of it switching every time I start another line of writing. It is really frustrating having to constantly switch back to Spanish.

                          • infinite A4

                            INFINITE A4 FORMAT WITH INDICATION OF THE LOWER MARGIN OF EVERY SINGLE A4 SHEET THAT IS CREATED, THROUGH DOTTED LINE OR COLORED LINE.

                            You must necessarily insert the infinite A4 format, perhaps even with an indication by dotted line, highlighted, or how else you want the bottom edge of every single A4 page. In this way, anyone who wants to keep an ordered format, printable in A4, can take his notes taking into consideration not to write or draw across the boundary line of the single A4 sheet, and not have printing problems. It also seems absurd that "MICROSOFT" has…

                            • Ability to work offline is essential, OneNote is my main work tool

                              I use OneNote all the time and sync between OnedRIVE, two laptops and a desktop. I travel extensively and am frequently without Internet connection so the ability to work on a local copy until I can resynch is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL.

                              BTW - I never use the web version, too slow and clunky.

                              I have all my PhD work in OneNote so if I cannot work locally I will have to switch to the leading alternative which actually seems more popular in academic circles.

                              • I have several feature requests:

                                I am retired management consultant doing a PhD and journalism.
                                Word count - I do most of my writing in OneNote now because much of it goes online and is formatted by the web site. I also do my initial drafts of formal documents (that is where my notes etc are) . I am frequently wrtting to word count constraints (min or max)
                                It would be useful to be able to set line and especially paragraph spacing for a notebook, or even globally for OneNote.
                                I work in English and French so have a notebook for French that I would…

                                      • Ability to change grid line color

                                        OneNote (UWP) has the wonderful ability to change the color of the page. Unfortunately the default grid line color is bit an eye sore when compared with darker page colors. The simple option to change the color of the grid lines would be much appreciated.
                                        Kind Regards,
                                        Lasith

                                        • Multiple O365 accounts

                                          The Android app ( and may be other apps) do not all connections to multiple O365 tenants. Which makes it pretty hopeless in the real world
