  1. There needs to be a way to stop an accidental video download on OneNote or at least have it timeout.

    When an error occurs in downloading a video to OneNote, there needs to be a timeout or way to stop it from trying to download. I am on day two of an accidental video download.

  3. Change the name

    All names starting with "One" or "First" sucks!
    It is not difficult to keep such a name starting with 1 or 1st. Many companies have done this in past in different locations in globe, but all failed? No, but none at least reached to the top. I know at least one company in India which in 1995 it was called "Brilliant's Computer Centre" (located at New Delhi) which changed its name to "First Computers" and went to oblivion quickly. Bad names used to be "proprietary" of Open Source community or Sun/Oracle circles. MS had a strong tradition to choose really…

  4. Add a virtual drive option

    Create virtual drive that allows applications to save and load directly from onenote. Would work like the print to onenote driver, but would allow working with files directly from onenote without having to save to a directory, open onenote and attach.

  7. View dimensions of a page when using OneNote

    Make a view in OneNote that makes the notebook page look like a piece of paper you write on. Currently, when I write handwritten notes its one long "paper" without a beginning or end to a sheet of "paper". When I print. it often cuts off half of a sentence when it prints from 1 page to another.

  8. Exclude the "In Attendance" Tag from Find Tags feature

    If you are using the Meeting Notes integration with Outlook and To-Do Tag features in OneNote, the Find Tag feature becomes completely useless as it is clogged with names of attendees not present at meetings. For example, if I have a large meeting with 25 attendees and only 12 show up, and meeting of 5 people where only 3 are in attendance, and a meeting with 10 where 5 individuals show up, I now have 20 additional tags that show on the "Show only Unchecked" view in the Find Tags summary page. Simply checking off the names, but that leads…

  9. It would be nice if you could opt to share onenote items on outlook calender so it could be viewed in that format as well

    It would be nice if you could opt to share onenote items on outlook calender so it could be viewed in that format as well. So if I speak into my phone a calender / appointment it would go to the outlook calender if I opt for that or am I missing something

  11. Show Recent notes on default Live Tile

    In addition to all ideas asking for you to display the page content when the page gets pinned to the start screen, I'd like to see a list of my recent notes when the OneNote app itself gets pinned.

    The reason is that some times, just by looking at the title of a note, I can remember what I have to do. I could create multiple lists of things to buy, one list (page) for each place I have to go.

    If you display my recent notes to the live tile, it gets easier for me to remember of every…

  14. An "As At (AutoDate)" Tag would be useful for project lists in OneNote

    It would be useful to add to the list of "Tags" one that means "As At (autodate)" For example by selecting it from the list today, a bullet point starts with the words "As at 3 August 2015, .....". This would be handy for user compiled To Do lists and status lists where a date stamp is desirable to record a project status at a point in time. That date stamp need only be stamped as text and is editable too once inserted.

  16. Have a Way to Reset Password

    There needs to be a way to reset or remind users of what their password is. Permanently being locked out because you can't remember/find your password isn't user friendly.

  17. Image Formatting and Properties

    There should be more options to format images AND there should be a sidebar that displays the image's properties (like there is in OneDrive).

  18. choose a page for audio notes to automatically go to instead of each audio note creating a new page

    I use a page as an inbox and I would want to be able to send a 2 second audio note I make in the car to that inbox page instead of having it create a whole new page for just that one note

  19. Add page counts to sections and groups

    Allow users to display a page count next to Sections and Section Groups similar outlook. This would let you choose between showing the total count, unread count or both (total / unread).

  20. Hotkey to send text to OneNote

    A Win+ hotkey to send selected text from any app to the next line below the current OneNote.
    "Send to onenote" is not very usable when you just want to continuously select and send snippets of text while working in a word doc
