It would be so helpful if I could add reminders for tasks in onenote directly (kinda like how Evernote allows you to). I love that is done through the app so it truly pops up on my screen reminding me that I have a task to do.
Currently you can setup OneNote reminders, is just that they work integrated with outlook, so in order to set it up, you have to be using Outlook. OneNote has a great tool to create reminders, tasks etc inside OneNote, in the "home" tab, under "tags", you can add To Do Tag and integrate with Outlook Tasks to create reminders, you have even Meetings notes integration between outlook calendar and OneNote

The reminder feature from within all versions of One Note is an essential add-on. Please, it cannot be complicated to add this.

This is one area where Google Keep is ahead of OneNote. If MS wants to stay ahead, they should add this. Integrate Cortana behind the scenes, like they have said they are doing across Office. Seems like a no-brainer to me.

This is a sorely missed feature. I personally would prefer to have standalone reminder capability in OneNote outside of Outlook.
Yes, I was looking for reminders everywhere just as Evernote does and learned there´s no such feature in Onenote UWP.
