  1. More full search window that shows context of query

    In evernote when you search through your notes it shows you a listing of the notes that match your query. In the results window/pane it shows you the context around what matches your query. Right now if I search in OneNote for a word or phrase it only shows me the title of the note, but that doesn't help me know when I have so many notes with similar titles. Perhaps you could implement a search pane or window that shows the note title and few lines before and after the query match.

  3. Highlight unused pages

    Given that OneNote is used for documenting various projects’ procedures and as personal knowledge base the lot of pages are created.

    When too much content gets into the OneNote notebooks

                And user decides to clean up things a bit
    
    And user clicks “Mark all content/pages which haven’t been accessed for X months”

    Then OneNote colors in red:

                All pages not accessed for a defined period by any user
    
    All Notebooks and sections with such pages.

  4. RESTORE the ability to copy mutiple Outlook message items to OneNote

    RESTORE the ability to copy mutiple Outlook message items to OneNote (in an individual OneNote page, not as attachments). Not everyone has the luxury of being able to uninstall Service Packs. I am still using OneNote 2010 and there is no indication that we will be upgrading to 2013 any time soon.

  5. Create one view for multiple onenote accounts

    I use Onenote for my personal life and now need to start using it for work. Our work content is stored on our work servers. I do not want to load my personal info onto my work's systems. I would love the ability to sign into both accounts simultaneously and have one view of all my notes.

  6. Make it a bundled lens of the Microsoft Camera

    Pre-install Microsoft Office Lens as a part of the Microsoft Camera which can be seen in the app list, and updates via the Windows (Phone) Store while it also retains all previous features.

  7. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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...)

  12. 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

  13. (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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. [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.

  20. 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…
