  1. Add Insert, My Apps to create quizzes

    I would like to have the Insert My Apps option in OneNote so that I could create live link to a blog using Web Preview as well as to create multiple choice, free response and poll question types after a section of work as homework or class activity etc.

    This would be amazing for teachers and students.

    • Post note from outlook to password protected tab

      I love that I am able to password protect a certain tab, and also agree that protecting a whole section would be neat.
      I use the password protect function for protecting my management information. However, I have found that it is not possible to create a note from the Outlook 2013 snap in to a password protected tab, without first going to Onenote and unlocking the tab first. Could you please fix this?

      Thanks for a great Product and agile development team!

        • Simple animations of drawings.

          A dream would be simple animations of drawings. Like we used to have in Microsoft Physics illustrator for Tablet PC. Could this code be repurposed. Drawing and notes could come to life.

          • Add vertical dividers similar to horizontal divider/spacer.

            Add a divider for the vertical dimension in addition to the horizontal spacer that exists.

            • Label color choices

              Color blind people, like myself, find it difficult to want to use color coding or write in different colors because we cannot always tell what colors things are. I know that this is a small minority of users that are effected by this.

              • 유튜브 영상 등 Embed 형식의 태그 삽입 지원

                혹시 유튜브 영상 플레이어 통째로(링크말고) 클리핑 되는 기능은 개발일정에 반영되어 있나요? (불편한 점까지는 아닌데 추가되면 좋겠어요) 다운로드는 아니고요. 웹에서 html코드로 유튜브 영상을 삽입하면 유튜브 플레이어가 들어 있는 상태로 삽입이 되는 기능입니다. 이 기능을 지원한다면 html문서 상에서 작동하는 위젯등도 클리핑이 가능할 것 같아서요(환율 체크 위젯이라거나...)

                • Improve pen feeling for scketches in surface pro 3

                  I'm an architect and use OneNote App on my Surface pro 3 for my project scketches... It's not a good experience because of the pen feeling... I'd like more colors and thickness options as well as a pencil feeling like the one I can find in Fresh Paint

                  • (desktop version) create and save custom tag libraries

                    Create different tag collections- so the same tag images can have different meanings depending on context. Select the collections depending on which book or project, etc.

                    • I process large, complex telecom and data orders. I need sub-notebooks just like sub-pages so I can breakout the customer and cities

                      When processing large orders for telecom, I need to have a notebook for a customer and then a sub notebook for the city or address for each location. Then, as documents come in for the customer/city, I can post them to the proper place. As it is now, I have to send to the customer's notebook and then reorganize the page to keep addresses or citys grouped together.

                      • Easy toggle off red lines.

                        When i use OneNote for school, i often get a lot of red lines, because i use special terms, that are not in my native language.
                        An easy way to toggle off red lines, by right-clicking on the notebook and enable/reenable it, would be perfect.

                        • [Delete/Edit speed] Löschen/Bearbeiten Beschleunigen

                          Häufig möchte man einige alte Notizen schnell löschen. Allerdings geht das nicht so einfach, denn beim Aufrufen von Onenote werden die Notizen bis zu 20 Sekunden lang synchronisiert - auch wenn es keine Änderungen gab. Das ist nicht nur nervig sondern hindert auch das flüssiges Arbeiten.

                                • Detailed access control for collaboration

                                  I miss the ability to control access to my notebooks in detail. I use it in a professional environment with a lot of colleagues and we have the notebooks placed on a network folder. If i want to control my colleagues access i have the following options:

                                  * full access to the whole notebook
                                  * read access to the whole notebook
                                  * no access to the whole notebook

                                  by using our normal ad access groups on the standard security settings on folders and files.

                                  This is ok for most cases but what i really want is to be able to…

                                  • Expand current page/Expand current tree/Autoscroll from the page

                                    When I go to some page through the search (Ctrl+E) I would love to have the ability to expand the tree to show me the current section where I'm in in the left pane either with the help of a shortcut/menu button or a some mode that does this automatically. For example Adobe Reader has similar function called "Expand Current Bookmark" and IDE's like IntelliJ IDEA have even more advanced "Autoscroll from source" feature.

                                    • ONenote as personal web site

                                      Using One Note as personal web site. It works except the navigation.

                                      I use One Note 2013 and have worked out how i can share the Web copy with public users. However One Note needs some help in that area. Mainly the left pan where one would select different sections on note book or different pages on the note book.
                                      What happens is that the Left Pan gets expanded automatically and makes it hard to navigate. IT would be very beneficial if the web version of the One Note would act like the desktop version in regards to the navigation…

                                      • Better integration of simultaneous use of phone app and desktop version.

                                        I would like to be able to take pictures (videos, audio recordings, drawings, etc.) with the one note app on my phone and comment on it directly on my computer, then take another picture on my phone within the same page and keep on taking notes, but this process proves to be tedious most of the time. All I get is syncing problems when I work heavily in this way.
