  1. Choose one note location

    I very much would like to choose where my picture goes in OneNote it's annoying having to constantly move my data back and forth in my notebooks trying to keep them organised and the quick notes section clean

  3. Fix authentication error for Office Lens.

    Saving an image is stuck because of an authentication error. Put in the code for work account and now it just spins. Rebooting or relaunching finds the image still there. Can't figure out what the problem is. Just stuck.

  4. The option to set a default file name format.

    I'd like the option to set something other than your standard default as it's too long. For example: I use this produxt to scan and save my receipts using a file name of yyyy-mm-dd.nn where n is a sequence number. It makes sorting easier so even if I could manually set yyyy-mm- as default and change it each month it would make things easier.

  6. Default filename and filename categories

    Default filename and file naming pattern should be configurable.

    Also it would be great to have quick categories (e.g. "notes", "to-do", "personal") which can be selected after photo is taken and which, among other, influence the file naming pattern (respectively "notesYYYYMMDD-COUNTER.jpg", "to-doYYYYMMDD-COUNTER.jpg", etc)

    They could also add respective (configurable) by xmp keywords and/or influence other behaviour.

  8. Outlook

    I like the business card scanner, but there are too many steps required to get a card into my Outlook contacts on my laptop.

    Also, please put an image of the card itself into the Outlook contact itself (like the Dymo Business Card Scanner does). This helps if there is an error in the extraction of data from the scan.

    While I'm at it, the accuracy of the extraction could be improved. My Dymo Business Card Scanner has less extraction errors, and that is quite old now.

  9. Bluetooth sharing with PC and Phones

    Very often I need to transfer scanned documents from the smartphone to my computer, but I can't do it when I have no Internet connection at the moment.

    If devices are next to each other, you can share documents by using Bluetooth and put directly in OneNote and pass OneDrive.

  10. Auto select the entire imported image, don't crop it.

    When I import an image, it is automatically cropped. I then have to go and manually change the page dimensions. Given me the option to automatically import an image and have the entire image selected not cropped.

  12. when the software try to straighten documents it ends up altering document proportions and introducing distortions that are not present in t

    when the software tries to straighten a document, it ends up: 1) altering the document width and height proportions and 2) introducing distortions that are not present in the page itself

    Sub 1) it should be possible to tell the software to format the page to various szes eg. A4, letter, etc.

  14. Better file name options in Save dialog

    It's needlessly painful to delete the default filename and enter one of my choosing. Can I have a single-touch option to use the default filename or begin typing a custom name? Or can that choice be set in advance as a default option?

  15. Needs to be much faster if it is to be used for importing pictures to onenote on the fly during lectures.

    I want a single click to get the picture directly to onenote. Then I want direct access to the office lens file in onenote. . This would make this flow seamless and very useful

  16. Default file name useless

    Make it far easier to change name of file (like her rid of that default that contains no meningioma information).

    Allow users to set up file their own file-naming protocol or choose no default name.

  18. Offline saving

    Let it save Office documents OFFLINE, because neither do I use OneDrive, nor I have a fancy data plan.
