  1. Add Comments/Notes/Tool Tips to OneNote

    It would be great if Microsoft could add ability to add a comment or note or tool tip--something that appears when I hover over a word with my mouse. Similar to adding a comment/note onto a cell in Excel.

  3. layout

    I really hate this new layout for Windows 10. It takes up WAY too much space on my screen in order to see all the files. It was MUCH better when I could see the notebooks and folders all listed in a single row down the left hand column, with the tabs at the top. Who on earth thought it would be a good idea to eat up more screen space to do the same thing? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE provide the option to go to the old view.

  4. Please let us set reminders right inside One Note.

    Others have posted this as well, just adding to the idea. It makes no sense not being able to set reminders, but yet we can create checklists and everything else. OneNote is the best, so lets please keep it that way.

  6. Graph View Like Obsidian.md (Mind map)

    We want your second brain to work like a real brain, so Obsidian encourages you to make connections between your notes. Simply type [[ and Obsidian will auto-complete the link.

    With connections in place, you can navigate your notes and get inspiration with backlinks and graph view.

  8. Send recorded actions (ToDo tags) to Automate (Flow) or Zappier

    We use OneNote for all our meetings (interanlly and with clients) and take actions (ToDo tags) from OneNote and copy them to our workflow app (Liquid Planner in this case). It would be SO helpful and save a lot of time, confusion, and errors if, after a meeting is done, we could trigger a "move ToDo's to X" action which would fire off the todo's to Automate (Flow) where we could create and assign tasks in Liquid Planner (or ToDo / Planner / iPhone reminders / etc...)

    Even if there needed to be a prescribed format (name, action, due date)…

  9. Make OneNote capable of generating a table of contents with links

    Make OneNote capable of generating a table of contents with links to the individual pages. I would like to be able to generate a table of contents (alphabetically sorted) of the pages in a notebook on a single page. I would also like this same functionality for a top level page (a page with nested pages under it) for the nested pages.

  10. The ability to Mention a Team Member with @Team Member

    Have the ability to mention someone in your team who has access to the notebook, for example adding @Richard as a comment would send a notification to Richard, allowing him to quickly navigate to a notebook page and look at the issue. This feature is present in most other Microsoft apps, please include it in OneNote, it would be a game changer.

  11. Characters are partially removed automatically

    Hundreds of Korean users experience characters removed automatically when using latest OneNote. This problem has happened since 2018. Janet H. J Park in Microsoft Agent is only giving unhelpful response with macro reply - recommended to post here to get help.

    When user types quickly on OneNote the part of characters are gone:
    안녕 --> ㅏㄴ녕 (ㅇ is gone)
    원노트 -->노트 (원 is gone)

    https://answers.microsoft.com/ko-kr/msoffice/forum/all/%EC%9B%90%EB%85%B8%ED%8A%B8-%ED%95%9C%EA%B8%80/0eb8708b-d200-4dd8-9410-2de631948299?auth=1&page=1

    I have no idea why I need to keep using latest version of OneNote, many users already abandoned and moved to OneNote 2016.

  13. Features missing including paper size

    The infinite paper size being the only option forces me to keep using OneNote 2016 or a simple pdf editor instead of OneNote for Windows 10.
    No paper size system is perfect for all uses, so there a range of variations have been adopted for various situations and industries and you still decided not to put this feature on onenote for windows 10 which makes it useless for use
    Choosing a size is one of the most common future that is used on onenote
    HoweverIt is impossible to export anything from OneNote if I cannot tell where the page ends …

  15. alphabetize

    Please add the ability to alphabetize pages within OneNote just like folders in Outlook. I love the app and use it daily. It keeps my brain from melting... thanks! :-) - JC

  16. Paper size

    PLEASE make an option to change the infinite canvas to an A4 paper size. I don't see why this was an option in One Note 2016 but not in the current version. This loss of functionality is extremely inconvenient.

  17. About the OneNote for Windows 10 function to upload to OneDrive and insert a link

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    OneNote for windows 10 の OneDriveにアップロードしてリンクを挿入機能について
    About the OneNote for Windows 10 function to upload to OneDrive and insert a link


    ■Description(内容):
    現在 OneNote for windows 10 の OneDriveにアップロードしてリンクを挿入機能を使用し、Excel ファイルを挿入した際、当該ファイルのリンクをクリックし、ファイルの内容を編集しても OneNote に表示されているプレビューに変更が反映されない。
    また、プレビューの右下にある "すべてのデータ接続を更新" をクリックしても変更が反映されない動作である。
    アプリを一度閉じ、再度起動すると変更が反映されるが、"すべてのデータ接続を更新" をクリックした際に正常にプレビューにも変更が反映されるよう機能の改善を要望します。

    Currently, if you use the OneNote for Windows 10 function to upload to OneDrive and insert a link and insert a Excel file, clicking on the ink and editing it will not cause the edits made to the file content to change in the preview visible in OneNote.
    Also, it will not update even if you click on “Refresh…

  18. 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.

  20. Send Page via Outlook Email

    OneNote 2016 allowed users to send a page via e-mail after it was created. This is absolutely critical for users that leverage OneNote to capture notes from meetings to send those notes out to all attendees (many of whom, especially leaders, do not use OneNote). Currently, when the "Share" button is clicked, and "Send a Copy" selected, only Twitter and Windows Mail show up as options for sending e-mail. For companies that require Outlook, this is unacceptable. We need the ability to do two things natively: track attendance (where did the checkboxes go?) and send pages via e-mail. Very frustrating…
