    Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey. Here are some of the results of the survey –
    • Sorting is needed for pages, sections, and notebooks
    • Sorting should persist while navigating, after close of notebook, across all devices, and be seen by people they share the notebook with
    • Current OneNote users want the following sorts – alphabetical, date created, and date modified
    • We heard from a lot of users who wanted to set section lists and page lists in a sort that they wouldn’t change often, but there was also a set of users who mentioned that they would want to live in a certain sort order, but switch to another sort order as an aid to locate specific items within their list

    Thank you again for your responses. This information helps us understand the experience we need to build to match your needs.

  3. OneNote for Windows 10 enable file location on local and network drives.

    Please enable local and network drive file locations for one note files.

  4. Add in ALL OneNote 2016 features!!

    Don't keep going down the Edge path, deploying a crippled app. E.G. being able to insert editable Excel file.

  5. Reminder / Alarm /follow-up on Page or task

    In OneNote App on Win10, it would be really good if I could add a reminder / alarm to text , checkbox or similar.
    So that I can add it as a follow on a point I need to be reminded about.

    If you forget it during a meeting, you will forget to check or follow up the item you had highlighted.

    Thanks!

  6. Excel

    Excel is nicely integrated in OneNote 2016. However, in the Windows 10 version of OneNote the Excel integration is gone. Will Excel be added to the Windows 10 version of OneNote? If not, we will be using OneNote 2016 until it is.

  10. Cloud Attachment from file already in the Cloud / without uploading again somewhere else

    I would like the possibility to embed a file located in the Cloud example in my OneDrive or a Teams SharePoint into OneNote.
    If users don't have access to this file then the preview shall notify this.

    currently you can only attach a file and upload to your OneDrive

  11. Introduce mindmapping/flowcharts into OneNote

    Introduce mindmapping into OneNote, including:
    - integration with finger/pencil to create node shapes (circles, squares, triangles etc) around text
    - integration with finger/pencil to create freehand connections between the shapes (line/arrow connecting automatically two shapes)
    - Ability to show NoteBooks, Sections and Pages as Mindmaps
    - Text extraction to mindmap (See separate suggestion for MarginNote/LiquidText like functionality)

  13. Add calendar integration in to the one Note

    While working on the pages, I usually use One Note as a GTD Tool.
    The Tags are here and everything is here to make OneNote as a perfect GTD Solution what's missing is the Date filter.

    I want to assign a future date like the Outlook Task so that it reminds me to use the specific page for that purposes..

  14. Customize Header Styles

    The built-in header styles are useful but limited to the default settings. It would be helpful to be able to customize them for different font schemes. This feature is already present in Word where you can create styles.

  15. Export OneNote for Windows 10 pages to MS Word

    Please add back the 2016 feature to export a OneNote page or section to MS Word.

    We use OneNote for note taking and first drafts. However, if/when a note becomes a long term doc that needs publishing, we want to convert to MS Word.

    In OneNote2016, of course, this feature was there. However, on Office365, you can't use online OneNote with desktop 2016 very well. So, we really need the feature added (back) to OneNote for Windows 10..

  16. Code block

    I'd really like to ability to insert a code block. Just a simple block that has a different background than the surrounding text.

    If this were paired with source code formatting, and editing, that would be an amazing enhancement to OneNote.

  17. Improvements to Tags and Custom Tags

    The tag functionality is incredibly useful, and I would argue it's essential to OneNote's usefulness for most people that it be the best it can possibly be.

    That said - it is currently a bit clunky and restricted.

    When I create a custom tag, I am limited to only the icons provided by Microsoft OneNote. Why is there no option to add my own icons? Even if a custom icon had to meet certain strict standards, including file size, image size/dimensions, etc... that would be HUGELY helpful.

    Also, the ability to create a custom tag that changes would be amazing.…

  18. search feature

    Please make the search feature more powerful. The Windows 10 Onenote app cannot find part of the searched item. It requires me to type the first letter of the searched words. e.g. If I'm searching for "vehicle" and type "ehicl", it will not find any matches until I type "veh".

  19. Old Layout is better

    Why did this change? So stupid. I'm trying to get the rest of my team on board with using OneNote, they see how well the old one works but when they go to load it they get this new layout ****. Not Happy.
    Fix it!

    NOW!

  20. Center Equations

    When centering equations in OneNote, it always falls back into being left-aligned after a minute or so. A workaround would be to add a number at the equation (<equation> #1) but numbering equations is not always a formatting preference. I hope the OneNote team can fix this bug.
