Templates in UWP
If you're going to remove OneNote from Office 2019 and recommend people use the less full featured OneNote UWP app...you need to add pageTemplates from OneNote 2016/365 to the UWP app.
All functionality for Page Templates,
Creating a template
Saving a template
Using a Template as default for a note section
WHY? Why are templates gone in the Win10 version?? I use OneNote for everything from developer how-tos (which require templating so they're consistent) to work and personal journaling to keep on top of everything. Without templates, this is kinda pointless. Might go back to pen and paper.
Do Microsoft ever respond to these things?
Surely there should be a response by now?
Is anyone out there? ...

This has been added to OneNote for Windows 10:
- Right click any page tab and click "Set as default template"
Seriously though, how long are people going to have to beg for this feature to be brought back?
Please! This is the most disappointing thing about the new one note app. Removing templates removed so much functionality, and made OneNote way harder to use, and way less efficient!
Please, add templates and a function to create them. I want to make my digital class notebook more colourful and organised without having to restart from zero and risk pictures to get everywhere they shouldn't be! Pleaaaase, pretty please, This teams/onenote obsessed user is begging you

Why doesn't the UWP app support the template function like OneNote 2016 did. Please make that happen. You won't have to ever get me a Christmas present ever again.
Bring back the templates! PLEASE!
I need to take meeting minutes in a specific format. OneNote templates please.
The fact we have to "vote" for this is.... well, ridiculous. It should be on a roadmap at least, but more likely, completed by now.
Allow Templates for OneNote. If you don't allow templates, users will search for a another option that have templates.
Another vote for templates. Such a useful tool, especially for meeting notes.

One more vote for templates in OneNote Win10/O365. They're indispensable for organization and efficiency.
Please enable the use of templates. Microsoft tauts everything being integrated to save time, and templates save a lot of time when working on similar projects.
OneNote Windows 10 app - Templates and Styles Options Functionality
Please re-implement the ability to set up templates, adjust font styles for Headings, etc. with an Options functionality.
The ability to make notes quickly is fantastic. I use the OneNote app all the time in my meetings and then tidy it up later for easier reading/understanding for sharing with the team.
Having the option to change the aesthetics of templates, styles, page sizes, margins, etc. would be an excellent improvement to the app.

Please bring back page templates for OneNote.
Please bring back page templates, and the ability to create section groups... Right now, it basically looks like it's going backwards instead of improving!!

Please add templates back into OneNote Windows 10 -- I wish I still had a OneNote 2016 version somewhere.
Please add the templates to Windows 10
I just took a look at onenote for the first time today and saw on the internet how much people liked using their templates. So I found instructions on how to get them only to find that they've been discontinued in my version. I should no better than to think a free app that comes with Microsoft would be useful. Wouldn't it be nice if microsoft offered a productivity suite that was well productive? Without fail there are always better products than what you get with the operating system.
