Keep Outlook Integration In OneNote for Windows (Like 2016)
One of the most powerful feature is the ability to tag things as Outlook Tasks. Also the ability to create a OneNote page from a meeting. These features are the heart and soul of OneNote.
amazing this is still not a feature, its the one thing really stopping the 3 products linking together to create a single productivity super suite. Notes, Tasks and Emails, they all come together if they add this feature.
As OneNote for Windows is a standalone application, the tasks from OneNote could be synchronized with MS "To Do" online service directly instead of Outlook.
But really agree to say that create task from OneNote is a must feature.

it is disappointing to note that Microsoft doesn't understand the useful features of each software we use in business. no any business organization will eliminate features instead they keep improving the features.
in this case, the outlook task facility has been removed from onenote creating a huge pain for users....i hope you do understand the user touchpoints mapping theory with which new products can be improved.
hecne we dont need windowes 10 now with reduced features.....
This was a much used feature for our business.
Would prefer not to migrate away from One Note use for our projects and tracking, but the scaled down office 365 version of One Note gives up so much functionality as to become nearly useless for us. We are using the Office 2016 version of OneNote, but even so we can no longer Save Page as Email that includes the checkboxes which communicate which items have been completed. So we can no longer email a project's task page to project leaders or executive management that show where we are on something--what we have done and not done. Since the list shows in text without the checkbox indicating the status of the task.

This bug is really insanely annoying.
I have English as language in Windows but Swedish as default in Office because that's the language I most often need to write in. But OneNote totally ignore both the default Office setting and the attempts to set proofing language within the app.
I am using 2016 version only to send the notes out... not very practical...
This is makes OneNote unusable.
i realy like the new OneNote but without this feature ill rather use the 2016 version.
Ditto - need this for my business as well... up-vote please.
bring it back
Product no longer meets organizational needs without this feature.

The ability to click Email page and have it automatically address the notes to everyone that was invited to the meeting in Outlook, show all who were marked as attended and include all of the notes and graphics is critical. Losing this feature is devastating to efficiency.

it's a basic but powerful requirement to be able to create outlook tasks from onenote pages - hope they add this back in or I'm sure many will need a new solution.
Update of OneNote has devastated my daily workflows. need to drag emails into Onenote from outlook and attach as files. All the other stripped out integreation features with Outlook were important too. SO incredibly frustrated.

Why was this ever removed?! Completely idiotic move by Microsoft.

Integrate with Outlook, Planner and To-Do tasks.
Seriously, how could this critical feature (Outlook Tasks in OneNote) be removed?!?!

Please keep these features!!!!
"Email Page" that works with Outlook desktop client is something that is used so often
