  2. Search feature upgrade, return to results, not start over

    Every time I search for a document, I select to view something, realize it's not what I was looking for, I hit back button and it returns you to search field again!!! Why? It should send back to "results", not start over every time.

  3. Bookmarks in PDFs

    Being able to mark progress in documents without having to re-upload the entire document would be amazing.
    Being able to create multiple labeled bookmarks would be even better.

  4. Make groups more specific

    I have over 5000 photos tagged #dog on my onedrive account. Understandable, but it would be wonderful if they were grouped into smaller subgroups. Like "German Shepherd" "Labradord Retriever" "Chihuahua" I raise service dogs and work at a doggie daycare. I have 4 dogs of my own and looking through 1000's of #dog photos for a white german shepherd i trained 2 years ago is next to impossible!

  5. Microsoft app should have an enemy search query .since it offers et in many places it would be offered in every place Microsoft is available

    The idea is simply having the same type service on all of one's devices which makes it so much easier to operate & esp. Promote the product.

  6. Melhorar e deixar mais prático a pesquisa no OneDrive

    Estou tentando achar uma foto tirada em 2013 ou 2014 e estou tendo muita, mas muita dificuldade nisso. A pesquisa do OneDrive não é nada prática. Deveríamos ter a opção de procurarmos por ano, por mês, por dia... Atualmente não tenho como fazer a pesquisa assim.

  7. Have a feature to put your own dates in for a search as there is a month feature then it skips all the way to a year

    Have a feature to put your own dates in for a search as there is a month feature then it skips all the way to a year And most of the time I need to go back farther than a month but not as far as a year. So say 05/15/16
    To present date. Rather than only have a month and year or any date etc.

  8. Hide certain folders from search results

    Would be good if I could hide selected folders from search results. I keep backups of files in my one drive that I don't necessarily want to see in the search, either on the website or the iOS app (or any other app, including in Windows).

  10. General search

    When searching for a file, and the wrong file is selected from the results screen, it would be helpful to return to the search results screen to select a different file, instead of being sent back to the main screen and have to enter the search details over again!
    Regards
    Ps love this cloud app

  13. Searches

    After doing a search and opening one of the resulting items, I would like to be able to return to the original found items to continue my review to narrow down my choice without having to start the search over again. Also when first entering the search mode it would be helpful to see recently searched terms.

  14. The ablity to scan both Onedrive and HD to remove duplicate files. Music folder is a mess!

    There is a real need for a quick ability to easily clean out duplicates.

  15. More searching on date.

    For example search for a day of the month...April 24...regardless of year. Or all photos from 2013. or April 2013. I can do this in Photo Gallery, but since I'm already here...

  17. How about a more straightforeward delete icon. Saves time having to scroll or slide about looking for it.

    Would be good if we could see an immediate delete button/icon when we know we no longer need to store an item long out of date.

  18. need to have the ability to sort every column on results such as search

    this is especially true since the search function searches everything only---ant that includes the recycle bin--why would i want to search the recyle bin as part of a search for something valid--i should be able to search recycle a a separate function to retrieve a mistake etc.

  19. Typing on keyboard initiates search

    Feature request: would be nice to initiate file search (like in a directory) when I start typing on the keyboard. This will save a step in needing to press the magnifying icon to get the search box.

  20. Removed tag search.

    I would like the ability to search more efficiently with tags.
    For example if i searched "#Tag1 -#Tag2" i would get any pictures with Tag1 but without Tag2. (or something like that)

    [If this is a thing i am sorry but i havent found out how.]
