    Thanks for the feedback! We are considering this request, but don’t have anything to announce at this time. Please stay tuned.

  2. Ability to tag people using @ like Outlook

    Now in Outlook you can use the @personsName and it will connect it to that person. It would be super awesome if you could do that sort of thing in Outlook and then it would basically work like assigning a task. I would think you could have a view then to see all the "Mentions" (as Outlook calls them). for yourself or for someone else. Grouping them by page would probably make sense since it is likely separated by meeting or topic.

  5. Code Editor

    Hate losing formatting when pasting in code into OneNote. Would love to have color highlighting, line numbers, etc, stay when pasting in.

  6. Add find and Replace

    Add find and replace. This is self explanatory. And I have no fucking clue why its not there. Never-mind, I remember, you're Microsoft.

  8. Add SmartArt functionality to OneNote

    I use SmartArt all the time but have to do it in PowerPoint or Word and then put a screenshot in OneNote. Would much prefer SmartArt being directly integrated.

  9. Send Page via Outlook Email

    OneNote 2016 allowed users to send a page via e-mail after it was created. This is absolutely critical for users that leverage OneNote to capture notes from meetings to send those notes out to all attendees (many of whom, especially leaders, do not use OneNote). Currently, when the "Share" button is clicked, and "Send a Copy" selected, only Twitter and Windows Mail show up as options for sending e-mail. For companies that require Outlook, this is unacceptable. We need the ability to do two things natively: track attendance (where did the checkboxes go?) and send pages via e-mail. Very frustrating…

  10. Give us the previous navigation layout back in OneNote for Windows 10

    I HATE the layout of the new navigation manu in the latest update of OneNote app for Windows 10, in this model, you can't customize the menu position, etc while you could in the previous versions. I don't understand why you think you need to change what's good while you do not touch what's bad! Please give us the previous navigation layout. It had no problem.

  11. Reminders

    Option to put reminders within OneNote, do not ask us to use Outlook for that.
    Best option is to integrate all good features of Wunderlist and still retaining great features of OneNote. Combination will be deadly and nothing will be able to beat OneNote.

  13. 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.

  14. Add "tag" functionality just as it's done in Evernote

    Just let us have the "tag" functionality just as it's done in Evernote. A simple UI element on each page to add tags quickly (auto-completing to already existing tags as one types - just as in Evernote) and then making the search function aware of these tags, so they also appear on the search results.

    We appreciate your feedback on tag search and custom tags. We have shipped tag search, other search capabilities, and custom tags for the OneNote app. Please go to the App Store and make sure you have the latest build, explore, and give us feedback on these areas.

    Areas to explore and give feedback on –
    • Tags in your notebook and pages now appear in your search results
    • Search for multiple tags
    • Tag suggestions in the search dropdown
    • Recent searches
    • You can now use quotes around a phrase to search for that exact phrase instead of individual words
    • Pivot on page and tag results I the search results pane
    • Combined tag and text searches
    • Do you get unwanted results?
    • Is your regular page search getting impacted in any way?

    Areas to explore and give feedback on custom tags –
    • The workflow…

  15. Outlook Tasks, etc.

    Need to continue to have all Outlook integration functionality in Onenote for Windows (particularly task creation) if you are going to sunset Outlook 2016. Difficult to understand how it could be a good business decision to do otherwise.

  17. Todo list with sort and delete all checked functions

    The ToDo lists would be much better if you could sort by items checked/unchecked. Also, the list would go a long way if there was a shortcut key for deleting all of the checked items.

  18. Sub Pages more than two levels

    To organize my work I need more than two level of subpages. Minimum ten level will be good. Maximum 20 level will be great. On other respect One Note is great. For time being I have to find other alternative until you get it right

  19. Win: add flexible hashtag-like tagging integrated with search (search refinement using tags as filters)

    With hashtag like tagging users can create set of tags on a page level on the fly. The these tags a should be integrated with search in a way that they can be used as additional filters on search results (this is called facetted search). The built-in tags are way to labor intensive, the do not sync among multiple users of a notebook and they are not integrated with search.

  20. Markdown Writing Mode

    Have a special mode for entering Markdown text instead of RTF, that understands Markdown constructs including its own bold/italics, links, code entry, etc. with no interruption from the usual RTF formatting tools
