Microsoft is adding two new features to its OneNote UWP app and they include sort pages and Set as Default Template options. 

The company recently added a brand new icon to its Windows 10 OneNotea pp as well. The Redmond giant stopped working on new features for OneNote 2016’s desktop application in April 2018.

Microsoft wanted to concentrate on the UWP version of OneNote and that served as a major reason behind the decision. 

The company is working really hard to bring new capabilities to the OneNote‘s UWP version. Ben Hodes, Microsoft’s product manager for OneNote revealed some details regarding new features launching very soon.

He shared on his Twitter account that the company is adding a series of new features to the UWP app. These features include the ability to sort pages and Set as Default Template options. 

Two new features coming your way

Sort Pages feature

You can use some specific attributes such as names or date to filter pages via the “Sort Pages” feature. This feature will provide users with a better way to navigate between pages.

Set as Default Template feature

The “Set as Default Template” feature will allow users to apply the same custom page on all their pages in OneNote. These enhancements allow users to manage their routine tasks quicker and save time.

Additionally, experienced professionals can use this feature to maintain a consistent layout. 

Some of the users replied to the tweet and asked Microsoft to bring some additional functionalities to the app.

One user asked Microsoft to allow setting guidelines for page size in the OneNote app.

Does the new “Set as Default Template” include setting guidelines for page size? Some of us have to print things from OneNote, so this would be very helpful.

Another user suggested an additional functionality:

If you could combine the functionality of Google docs in embedded excel and word docs in one note that would be awesome. Right now my grad group uses both because we can’t edit docs.

The tech giant didn’t share any information about the date Windows 10 OneNote is going to get these features. Microsoft is currently testing both these features. We hope that they will be available later this year.
