    The last time i used android very recently in MOTO G which i got for my dad, I was pleased to find the feature in their keep application similar to one note that it had a reminder option. The reminder was both based on location and time reminder. Its a very useful feature when you actually take a note and ask the device to remind you about that note. The note simply appears either in the notification tray or as an LED notification in the glance screen.

    Also,
    1. Changing the colors of the notes to help identification
    2. Introducing label system in One note so that you can categorize particular notes to various labels for easy search.

    This could be a very useful feature for, one note users. Is there any similar update or approach that we have for windows phone 10?

    I'm not quite understanding your question, but I'm going to give it a shot. I think you're asking if Windows Phone 10 will have a reminder functionality based off of location. Meaning if you want to remind yourself to get milk, next time you're at the store. You are then asking if it will be available via OneNote.
    1. The location-based reminder is already available via Cortana in Windows Phone 8.1.
    2. Also in Windows 8.1, I have different colored reminders, for say work and personal.
    3. I don't know what the OneNote team has in store for their next release (coming out soon, I think)

    Well I am not saying about the location based reminders in cortana. I am highlighting "is there a feature available in ONE NOTE where the user can create a note(Say a big note or a list or a work note of details, which obviously cant be created just in cortana) and create a reminder (Time and location based) in the note itself? The reminder from the note application comes accordingly and when you click it your taken to the note created in one note application.

    To be precise, like evernote reminder feature.

    Colored reminders? Windows phone? Seriously? Where do I get that colors and labels?

    Thanks for the clarification. While I use OneNote throughout the day at work and at home, I don't use, nor am I aware of any scheduling feature it has baked in. I copy paste into the calendar.
    Regarding color - If you open the Calendar and click settings, it shows the various color coded categories you can use. Not sure if the reminder itself shows up with color, or if it just reminds you of what you wanted to be reminded about... but when I click on my calendar, I have about 6 different colored items that show up for my various categories (home/work/Facebook/etc.).

    Yeah! I was just saying like It would be better if we had a reminder scheduling and label feature in the OneNote. Has any insiders put this thought out?

    Looking through (OneNote 2003) the options I see that could be relevant to you:
    Date
    Time
    Date and time
    Tasks - color coded - with reminders
    "open task in Outlook"

    Are these the features you're looking for?

    Yes, but is it available in the latest version of ONENOTE? if not, was it removed?

    Can one note be synced with the latest version of one note in windows mobile 8.1?

    Yes and yes. I was using OneNote 2013 and it syncs with my WP 8.1. It a free app. Give it a try yourself. I think it's the best overall software in computing.
