  1. Add Sticky Page for Section Info

    Give each section a sticky page to contain info about that section.

    Could contain things like:
    1) purpose of section
    2) examples of what goes there (and what doesn't)

    Shared notebooks go awry when people don't understand the purpose of each section and how to use it effectively.

    I Photoshopped a mockup of the sticky concept (unselected vs selected) and put it here:

  3. Fix paste or clipboard. There is something wrong with it

    When I try to paste to OneNote, it will paste the previously copied text or image, then when I try to copy then paste again, it will work fine. I have to copy more than once for it to work.

    I tried if this also happens in Word but it doesn't.

    How I tested it:
    1. Copy (ctrl + c) image either from Snip and Sketch or from a browser.
    2. Paste (ctrl + v) image in Word. Image gets pasted.
    3. Paste (ctrl + v) image in OneNote. Previously copied image or text gets pasted

    It looks like copy-paste…

  4. Send to OneNote from Outlook

    Outlook allows me to "copy" an e-mail via "Send to OneNote" into a page. This is only working with the OneNote 2016 desktop app. It would be great if I could send an e-mail to the UWP OneNote app.

  5. page templates

    Please add the OneNote 2016 Page Template management features to the OneNote 10 version. The ability to select and customize templates is a handy feature.

  7. 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.

  9. All-on-the-left layout is inefficient

    All-on-the-left layout is inefficient - esp. when you have multiple sections and pages that you are jumping back and forth. All-on-the-left layout, compared to the 2016 layout, simply takes too much space if they are all being displayed. Having "Sections" on top helps a lot.
    This is the most important reason I switch to OneNote 2016 from the OneNote app. Sad to see 2016 is being dumped.

  10. Rotate inserted PDFs

    It would be really helpful if you could rotate inserted PDFs in OneNote. Currently, the "Rotate" button is grayed out.

  12. Sync Errors - Provide details on what didn't sync, where, why, and how to remediate

    Ideally less sync errors would be great, but if they do happen, we need to know what, why, where and how to fix. As is, we're told there's been a sync issue, but left in the dark as to where and how to fix.

  13. Allow some symbols to be included in the text search function such that #hashtag like keywords could be inserted and searched for.

    Allow some symbols to be included in the text search function such that #hashtag like keywords could be inserted and searched for. Overall a more robust search function would greatly improve the usability of Onenote for basic text based research. The current tag function leaves no visible text, does not have the utility of a basic keyword/tag list within a note, is too unwieldy, and is simply not designed to replace simple symbol denoted (ex. #keyword) functionality.

  14. Note reminder!

    I note down things and I want to get reminded at a certain time in the future. Maybe you are in a meeting at the end of the working program and you want to remind about your notes tomorrow morning when you get back to work. Just copy paste that Outlook button or send the note into outlook tasks where you can set a reminder.

  17. 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.

  19. Review Student Work in Sections WITHIN SECTION GROUPS

    While I can distribute section groups now, I still can't review pages that are in sections within section groups in student spaces. This nullifies the point of being able to distribute section groups to student spaces.

  20. You should be able to rearrange the order of how objects were created for the replay feature

    I can rearrange the order of the way I created things for the replay feature by cutting and pasting, but when there are a lot of objects it gets complicated, so there should be someway to easily rearrange the order for the way objects appear during the playback feature
