Excellent Productivity Tool by Microsoft

The design of OneNote and its ability to sync between the devices is excellent. So I can note anything and everything on any device and continue my work seamlessly.
To make it more productive I would like to see following features.
Copying Link of page should be possible even on mobile devices which is at the moment on windows or Mac laptops or desktop versions.
Possibility of putting reminders to the text tagged as Task should be possible.
And lastly something I would like to see is shortcut to insert current time and date anywhere on the page should be available on mobile device version of OneNote as well.

Best tool used till date for Project Information Collobaration

One note is one of the best tools I used till date for compiling and managing all the information related to multiple projects at one place.

For every project we have a separate notebook which is shared with the specific project team and all the information related to Meeting Minutes, Project Plans, Design related information, Market research, Decisions etc..are captured in multiple pages of project and it’s very useful to make decisions based on past and present information and also prepare final documents after the completion of project...

After using OneNote our productivity was increased.

Does not always work seamlessly - hangs, sync issues

I am a power user of OneNote on my iPad Pro. I heavily rely on it for getting my day to day jobs done. But at times it is very frustrating and annoying, when the app is stuck and does not sync properly. For example when I am offline and write a lot of text using Apple Pencil, and upon connecting to the network the app always has sync issues. Also some times changing the pencil color or choosing a different tool takes a while. One more issue is that changes made to a note book on desktop pc do not seamlessly sync on the app and shows an error - could not sync. OneNote in combination with OneDrive is a great combination, but these issues affect productivity and it would be better if Microsoft fix them soon.
