  1. Make it a separate app instead of a OneNote afterthought

    If I didn't have to dink around through dumbed-down OneNote (or d-d ToDo, or d-d Planner), Sticky notes would capture quick notes across all my devices so I could put them in my tool of choice. See other ideas, but they are device specific.

  2. Please find a way to sort sticky notes so that you can ask the application to only open notes of a particular color.

    I use the different colors to categorize my notes, i.e. green for fitness information, blue for social media, etc. It would be nice to have the app only open certain colors because I don't need all of them all the time, and it would save time for me by saving time on closing out the ones I don't need.

  3. Hiding sticky notes when you share your screen!

    I give a lot of demos on systems and sometimes I need notes to remind myself what specific things I need to say and highlight when I am demoing that page on. It would be so extremely helpful if I was able to use a sticky note, share my screen, but only make the sticky note visible to me somehow not to others who are viewing my screen. Not sure if this is possible or if I am clear enough but I would love to explain more if you contact me.

  4. Have a hotkey / keyboard shortcut to bring all notes to the top

    Look at the Notezilla product by conceptworld. Have a keyboard shortcut to bring all notes to the top, so that you can quickly make an entry (a big idea, something to do later, whatever) and then get back to work.

  5. Windows information protection support

    Windows Store - Sticky Notes 3.7 and higher should support "Windows Information protection" / WIP policies.
    Like OneNote, Word, Edge, notepad and other applications.


    Currently, when Windows 10 device is Azure AD joined and WIP policy is applied. It is not possible to Sign in with private Microsoft Account, nor Organizational account.

    Error:
    We couldn't verify your sign-in info.

    We can't sign you in with this account because your device is configured for Windows Information Protection (WIP). Please try signing in with a another Microsoft Account. Error code 0x80070164

    Or:
    We can't connect to the server. Error code 0x80072EFD


    Please…

  8. Dock panel to desktop feature like OneNote docking

    OneNote allows to dock one view to the desktop.
    It would make Sticky notes more all time visible to follow and update by similarly having the panel docked to the desktop, nearly widget-like ready.

  9. keep all sticky notes open after I open the app

    I got an auto update in the last week, and since then, everytime I open the sticky notes app I have to do additional clicks to open a specific note. Before the update, I could click the app and all the ones I had would appear on the screen. Now I have to hunt and find the one I want to use, and I have to open each one individually or click "open all notes" every time. This is no good. I use my notes about 30 times a day, and the update has created about 60+ more clicks for…

  10. Link Sticky Notes to To-Do

    Isn't Sticky Notes about Quick draft down important stuff, and to remember to work on it later? Isn't it quite similar to To-Do? Shouldn't they both be link or at least, be given the options to easily link? Such as Flagged Email at Outlook, and automatically added to To-Do.

  11. Make it run in the background instead of keeping it in the taskbar

    Switching between the windows apps is incovinient when sticky notes running in the taskbar.
    Users like me want ther sticky notes to be on the desktop which gives a cleaner management of the apps.
    Let the user decide whether to run the sticky notes in the taskbar or in the background.

    Thanks.

  12. Some Sticky Notes Highlighted on Boot

    Some of my sticky notes (as in not all) have been highlighting (as in flashing orange in the task bar) as if they are new when they are not on start up. It is very annoying, and I wish it would stop. It even does it seemingly at random when I am working on my computer.
    Please fix this. They're Sticky Notes, they dont need to flash.

  13. Support Windows Share contract

    Allow sticky notes to be shared using the windows share target contract. So that we can send them to different apps. Also, it would be also meaningful to allow other apps to share information with sticky notes through the share contract.

  14. Restore previous version of a Sticky Note

    My phone highlighted all text of my sticky note and deleted the text. I can't believe there is no way to hit undo or restore a previous version!
