  1. Fix the landscape view for pdfs in iOS iPad

    After the last update the landscape form of reading the pdfs books in Ipad is really bad. Now we have two pages in the same screen, not just one as was in the past. Is there any function that returns to the old display format? You can see the problem in the photo attached. I’ve alredy tried the Forum help and they send me here. Please, fix this bug because I work with pdfs in iPad.

  2. Allow OneDrive app on Android to be moved to SD card including storing offline files

    Unfortunately, I cannot keep this Android app because the app cannot be moved to secondary storage. I'm like every Android user and have limited available space on primary storage. Because of the OS and other required data that must be stored on primary storage, I have to move apps to my SD card after I install them in order to make room. I understand that users must first install apps to primary storage on Android. That's fine. Users should then be able to move apps like this to Secondary Storage in App Storage Settings. This app does not allow that.…

  3. iOS 11 Files Integration

    Integration with iOS 11 Files is very poor. OneDrive appears as a rudimentary pop-up within Files instead of being integrated the way iCloud Drive is. Please make OneDrive behave exactly like iCloud Drive does within the Files app.

  4. shared by me

    Could you add a menu "Shared by me" (similar as "Shared with me") in OneDrive web interface on the left side menu?

    More about the user need: on OneDrive, files and folder are shared "only you" by default but you can share files/folders hidden in folders or sub-folders which stay unshared. Over time it becomes very hard to see what you shared, thus having this page view of all files/folders "shared by me" would be very convenient for users...

  6. Fillable PDF Forms

    Please re-enable the filling in of PDF forms on the OneDrive app itself. As of now, I understand that PDF files become marked as read-only once they are put in OneDrive.

    It would be much more convenient if PDFs could be filled in from the OneDrive app itself.

  7. Organize files in a single column so we can see the FULL NAME of long files

    I have looked through the forum and this question was asked FOUR YEARS ago with still no fix as of July 2017.

    I have many files with very long, similar names and I need to be able to see the entire name of each one. The iOS app has the files organized life to right with truncated file names and there is no way to view them without leaving the current view to open each individual file.

    This can be fixed by either:
    1) organizing files in a single vertical column like on PC
    2) create a way of viewing…

  8. Make Android onedrive pdf viewer better or remove it

    Hi,

    Trying to work with pdfs stored on onedrive through the Android app is incredibly frustrating.

    There is a giant black bar at the top with nothing other than a back button and a large orange circle for annotation tools. This makes seeing the pdf very hard as these UI elements get in the way.

    Also there is no search capability.

    Either make this viewer better or remove it so we can use some other android pdf viewer. Actually we should be able to use any other pdf viewer and there is no way to do so currently and this…

  9. OneDrive For Business Context Menu Sharing / Copy Link

    As already several times mentioned we (the customers) need the ability to share / copy a link to a folder or file within the context menu (right click on the folder or file).

    This is an attempt to summarize the others ideas and get this idea upvoted, so Microsoft actually implements our wish.

    Also mentioned in this idea: https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/11356212-give-us-onedrive-for-business-context-menu-options we are in desperate need of this and with this idea "splitted up" for only sharing / copy link.

    Below and idea of the context menu from myself / Implementation in the ribbon of Windows Explorer also good idea:

    We recently completed the rollout of the new sharing experience on Windows and Mac. Please make sure you’re running the OneDrive sync client and then open the context menu on a file or folder in OneDrive. You’ll see a new Share command there!

  10. File encryption at rest.

    Allow files to be encrypted at rest like OneDrive for Business. The user should hold the key for the encryption.

    Thanks for the suggestion. The deployment documentation is available below and it has links to many other documents including how to manage group policy.

    If there are specific additional documents you’d like to request, please create an new item for each of those and we’re happy to look into it.

  14. Remove the limit of 10GB from personal OneDrive

    Its just unreasonable in todays world to restrict file uploads to 10GB. Its been a long time people have been asking for this. When MS removed unlimited storage, I was dissappointed just like many others. This stupid limit of 10GB made sense in that time because you can probably abuse the system by uploading huge files, ********* abusers. But now that there is a limit of only 1TB on the account, how in the world is this Stupid limit of 10 GB justified? I mean if I record a comcert from my iphone 7 plus, the raw video is 15…

  15. Make it so my one drive is actually protected!

    I recently lost 3 years of work docs. I use my one drive for everything. and recently my laptop got ransomware. within minutes every file on my one drive had been encrypted. As a result ever device I have synced with it lost those files. My suggestion is to create a protection that would recognize when every file is being encrypted and stop it. or at least warn the party before it allows it to sync on other devices. You advertise that my files are protected, It seems thought that protecting them from this sort of situation would be most…

    Thanks again for the suggestion. We added a setting for this – click the cog in the upper right corner of the website. Select Options and then Photos. You can now turn off automatic album creation.

  18. Folder Sharing

    Share folder like file "Get Link" for external users without external users being required to sign in . Since there is no such a future I am gonna have to use Dropbox, I wish I could of use onedrive since I am already paying office 365 tons of money!

  19. Remove the "OneDrive - Personal" from Explorer when not enabled.

    When we enable OneDrive for Buisness, the user also see a "OneDrive - Personal" folder in explorer, and when the user click on it, it will open the OneDrive for buisness folder?
