How can we improve Office Lens?

Save to existing OneNote page instead creating a new page each time

If you export to OneNote, a new page is created. I would like to be able to add an image to an existing OneNote page.

    To request starter and others: it's kind of possible if you start the other way round.

    If you want to add a picture to an existing page, open that page in OneNote first and then select the add picture option there (click the camera icon).

    There you have kind of the office lens functionality, i.e. cropping the sheet of paper or slide at the conference.

    Before you add any new features please make current behaviour more reliable.
    When I try to save to OneNote I am informed I don't have a network connection and it will not save. I can save to OneDrive from the same session (but that is completely unreliable also).
    This app has some great concepts but ruined by terrible user experience as mostly it doesn't work from iPhone.

    Completely agree! Whenever I go to conferences, I use Office Lens to capture slides or pictures from presentations, and then have a lot of cleanup to do on the desktop side, which gets very cumbersome, especially in back-to-back sessions.

    Since One Note is a Microsoft product, I would think it would be an logical addition.
