  1. 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.

    • 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.

          • 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…

            • Onedrive scan multiple pages

              So why can you scan multiple pages with office lens but not with the new scan feature in onedrive? And vise versa regarding renaming the file.

              • Allow guest folder access for non-Microsoft accounts

                I would like to be able to share access to a folder so a guest (non-Microsoft account) user can access all the files within that folder.

                Similar to the way Dropbox allows guest folder/file access mentioned below. They also provide password or timed access to guests with Dropbox Pro/Business.

                REF: https://www.dropbox.com/en/help/20
                Q. Can I share files with non-Dropbox users?
                A. You can share files with anyone, even non-Dropbox users, by getting a link to any file or folder. Once you get the link, you can send it by email, Facebook, Twitter, instant message, social networks, wherever you want. You can…

                  • Sharing Group Files with External Users

                    We urgently need the ability to share folders or files that reside in Group Libraries with External Users. At the moment it is not permitted. Only folders or files within my personal OneDrive for Business library can be shared externally.

                      We’re working to provide the same external sharing controls for group-owned sites that we have for Team Sites today. As a workaround today, you can add external members to the group to give them access to these files, and the full feature set is coming in the near future.

                    • allow saving to shared folders in iOS App

                      When saving to the OneDrive app in iOS (using the Open in... feature), it would be great to be able to save to a shared folder. As of now, you can't do that. If a team is working on a series of documents, they still can't share with each other easily. They have to each create a folder shared with others and then everyone on the team has to check every folder. If there was a shared folder for the whole team with edit permissions, it would be great for them all to be able to save to that folder.…

                      • Make API for Shared folders a lot better

                        You are able to Access the shared folders by you and others with "https://api.onedrive.com/v1.0/drive/shared" and access each of the elements by /drive/items/{id}

                        What I miss:
                        - Possibility to upload to folders shared by others that I have write access to.
                        - Possiblity to list the permissions for each item (OneDrive.com uses /API/2/GetPermissions)
                        - Possibility to Add/delete permissions as well

                          We haven’t documented the /shared API because we’re still working on making it work better. We’re working on expanding support for more sharing concepts including those you have listed.

                          For the OneDrive consumer version it is currently not availlabe to add customer file data (other than tags and comments). For a new app we would like to store some additional metadata for the files that are uploaded.
                          We would recommend the same approach as https://developers.google.com/drive/v2/reference/properties/insert

                          • Pause / resume button on Mac

                            OneDrive needs a pause button! Dropbox, Google Drive, etc. all have a way to stop syncing temporarily, like when you're on a Hotel WiFi or transit WiFi and don't really want to have OneDrive using all your bandwidth. OneDrive sync client doesn't have a pause button, which means I have to quit the app, which always seems to cause problems.
