How can we improve OneNote for Windows?

Allow collapsing of multiple levels of sub-pages

Would be great if we could have the ability to collapse pages like this:

Suppose we have a section for a course, say MATH.

MATH (collapsible)
Module 1 (Collapsible)
1.14
1.15
1.18
Module 2 (Collapsible)
2.1
2.2
(etc etc)

Right now, only the first level (MATH) is collapsible.

Thanks!

        I think this is done? You can collapse subpages in the free desktop version of OneNote. The collapse icon isn't visible until you hover over the parent page though.

        It would also be nice if you stack your collapsed PageContent objects that everything wasn't moved when you expand one. There should be an option to pin the PageContent object

        2 years!!! How is it possible? It's really frustrating! This is a simple fix, how is it possible you don't consider us at this point? Why did you give us the possibility to tell you what doesn't work, and then ignore us in this way?

        I could not agree more with the expressions of frustration listed by my fellow users! This is an easy fix and in actuality it should not be considered as a fix, but rather Microsoft should strive to make the functionality of online versions of their applications to be identicle in functuality as the download versions of the same software.

        Please and thank you!

        Especially do this on the app, as it's unusable with the long list of every page you have to scroll through!

        This is the most reductions thing. Get your stuff together, MS. Serve your customers!

        How can this not be a feature yet? Would be very easy to implement and it is extremely limiting to not be able to collapse multiple levels och sub-pages. To me this simple feature would make the whole difference between chaos and order. Please don't neglect this request!!

        100% need this- I have a daily meeting and I want to have them all in a Tab on separate pages, but "archive" the older ones by collapsing them away so I can only see the latest ones. Seems such a simple feature!

        I have recently started using one-note and this has very quickly become the main limitations of using the software. Looking around the forums it has been ask for by numerous users for many years but seemingly ignored by Microsoft. It cant be that hard to program surely?

        Listen to your customers Microsoft.

        Is this such a difficult to do change?
        It would be amazing to have this feature.

        In the desktop app on windows machine select two or more subpages at the same time using (Shift + click) or (Ctrl + click) then right click and Collapse Subpages option appears on the list.
