  1. Rewrite the whole application for Windows 10

    This is by far the worst app I have ever used by Microsoft. It is frankly a disgrace. I recommend scratching the whole thing and redoing it. Just about every feature is fundamentally flawed and it almost has no functionality. Please get yourselves some UX/UI professionals who can give feedback on this stuff and take a hard look at your competition.

    I'm really utterly surprised how bad it is, just wtf.

  2. Alphabetic and Numeric organization option

    Why can't OneNote have the option to organize it's tabs and notes the same as Excel of Word?
    I am an Electrical Contractor and use OneNote in Office 365 as a file cabinet so it is easy to keep a complete history of of my jobs i.e. Work orders, invoices, packing slips, job notes with photos, estimate notes with photos and emails. Anything that is involved or related to the project. The project is assigned a job number. It becomes very dis organized how the notes are saved and is incredibly time consuming to manually organize them, I have also…

  4. Better accessibility

    Please make Onenote for windows 10 accessible for users with visual impairments


    1. Create an option to adjust default line spacing.

    Please use the MS Word logic for this as the Onenote 2016 was difficult to use.


    1. Option for larger sidebar fonts - my global windows settings are at max but onenote is still too small.


    2. An option to change the fonts and colors of the default header styles:


    3. so that you can still use the text to speech function and it will recognise the headers


    4. An option to change default font colors


    These are the things that would help me,…

  5. Provide a Visual Way to Show All Containers on a Page

    Often times, when you have multiple containers on a page, when one expands, it nudges the rest of off screen boundaries. If the visible container contracts (when deleting text), the off screen containers do not move back to within screen boundaries.

    You have to scroll in all directions to hunt the invisible containers down and move them back.

    Is there a way like a page map that shows all containers on a page so you do not miss any.

    Thanks

  10. Send recorded actions (ToDo tags) to Automate (Flow) or Zappier

    We use OneNote for all our meetings (interanlly and with clients) and take actions (ToDo tags) from OneNote and copy them to our workflow app (Liquid Planner in this case). It would be SO helpful and save a lot of time, confusion, and errors if, after a meeting is done, we could trigger a "move ToDo's to X" action which would fire off the todo's to Automate (Flow) where we could create and assign tasks in Liquid Planner (or ToDo / Planner / iPhone reminders / etc...)

    Even if there needed to be a prescribed format (name, action, due date)…

  14. save and recall equations in onenote

    So I would love for there to be a way to use the equation editor to create mathematical equations and then call them when needed.
    So basically being able to create an equation full of variables and be able to save it as a name or shortcut so I can later insert it fully when needed.

    also set _ ^ to act as superscript and subscripts when typing similar to if you are using equation editor.

  16. features from desktop software

    merge the features of the desktop version from 2016 into the new app. even the little options like inserting the current date and time are missing from the app that are in the desktop version of the software.

  17. Background highlight color for TEXT should be persisted

    Once you have applied a Background highlight color for a Text, I chose NOCOLOR because I want to remove the highlight color which I got from the HTML page.

    The same color (No COLOR) should be persisted when I am trying to apply "No Color" Highlight to next set of Text as well.

  19. All Sub-pages collapsed option

    There should be an option in OneNote for all sub-pages to be collapsed. It is annoying to have to manually collapse all my sub-pages after an application restart
