    I often insert an Excel spreadsheet into OneNote and with the 2016 version, it would display a graphic representation of the Excel spreadsheet contents. If I then double-clicked on the Excel icon and edited the spreadsheet, the graphic would update to reflect the current spreadsheet contents. With the new version of OneNote, the graphic is static so even though I'm updating the Excel spreadsheet daily, I can't see the contents of my spreadsheet just by looking at the dynamic graphic, I need to open the Excel file. This has wasted a lot of time, to the point where I've switched back to 2016 so I can have access to this much-used function.

    The tags functionality in the new OneNote is very limited compared to OneNote 2016. I really valued the richness of tagging and then searching for tags in OneNote 2016 as this helped with my research. Really struggling with the limited tag functionality in the new OneNote.

    What also happens is when you send a page that contains graphics, MAIL deletes all graphics and only sends the text. Since I used to use this function a lot in OneNote 2016, I've needed to go back to the older version so I can email pages + graphics. I too use Outlook as I have a BUSINESS account, I really want to maximise my use of Outlook.

    I've needed to move some of my notebooks back to 2016 too to get the functionality that I need. Frustrating as I migrated over a dozen notebooks to the new OneNote platform, only to have to migrate about half of them back. I do like the look and feel of the new platform - though I really miss the lack of functionality.

    I get (reading these posts) that there is an option to set a page as a default template. That doesn't work for me as I need different templates at different points and want to be able to CHOOSE from a suite of templates that I've created.

    I use OneNote for my business and use templates to create forms which I can then load and fill as required. Now I have to copy and paste pages instead of simply creating a template and using it easily when needed. Really need and want this feature back.

    Wow - it's so frustrating that I now need to go to WORD to get my symbol and then come back to OneNote. Bring back this useful feature!

    Nigel - that's not correct. The 2016 version allowed for versions of pages to be accessed so this is not the reason this is not happening (in my opinion). Also, the workaround you suggested won't work as the new page is stamped with the current data and time - I need to be very specific about the date and time I enter as I want it to align to meeting dates and start times and I want to prepare the page beforehand.

    The advantage of the backup facility is if you made changes to a page and then wanted to retrieve the information, you could access the page that was backeup and retrieve the information easily. The new system doesn't allow this.

    I use SECTION GROUPS a lot and not being able to collapse them on my Android device means LOTS of scrolling past sections I don't need. Having the collapse option (like the desktop version) would be really useful and TIME SAVING!

    With OneNote 2016, under FILE > OPTIONS, I could select where backups were stored. With OneNote 2019 the backstage FILE view is gone and along with it the ability to set the backup location.

    I have a C:\ drive which is small and kept for WINDOWS + APPS. I have a D:\ drive of 1TB which is for data.

    With OneNote 2016 I had my OneNote backup set to D:\ drive. With the new OneNote I don't have that option. It must be putting data on C:\ drive somewhere as when I'm doing intensive work on OneNote, my C:\ drive fills up and stops me from working. :(

    I use lots of custom tags and to manually recreate them on another platform took way too much time. Yes - synchronising custom tags will be a great feature.

    I get that Nick - and that's what I'm doing. It's not a straight-forward process though and it would be better if you could delete unwanted templates from within the OneNote document itself. The fact that there's a greyed out option there to DELETE TEMPLATE suggests that the function is there - it's either not accessible for some reason or no longer working.
