Further suggestions

I love this app. It’s incredibly useful and works across different devices which makes it an amazing tool for my business.
One request/suggestion would be where you import a PDF into a page as an attachment/printout, it would be basically the perfect app if we were then able to highlight the PDF or make some notes on it. Even just a pen and highlighter function in there would be hugely helpful. Also the option to close the PDF and make notes and then reopen in the same place where you were.
Definitely not complaining though because this app is a huge help in my life so thank you!

Purposefully hindered

I use this app primarily on my iPad and occasionally cross over onto PC to go over my notes and it’s plain insulting to see how features have been kept away from the app even though users would more likely use them on the app, such as a ruler, ink to text, more insert options and being able to recover deleted notes(especially painful considering I’m a 365 subscriber).

It makes what would be a solid notes app for students and people wanting to go digital alike, while still making use of the integration they have from their 365 memberships a solidly mundane and frustrating experience. And that’s not including how the app will just and intermittently(but frequently enough to be noticed) just hang up and stutter, make notes made disappear after altering zoom and decide to completely lose track of your progress meaning your undo/redo buttons grey out as if you’re starting afresh.

If you are looking to fully make electronic noting your main method of creating notes and work, rather go to a different app. If willing paying for apps well covered and reviewed like notability will serve you better and with less stress.

Love it, but please add a calendar

This is the best app ever. I can’t imagine my life without OneNote. If I could make a suggestion though it would be to include a calendar and reminder function. If you have a page with for example a summary of an agreement and you want to be reminded to pay on a certain day. Also a calendar function. I make a table in OneNote with our year’s planning which is very nice because it is shared, but it would be very nice it were a calendar function. Thank you
