  1. 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.…

    • 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.

          • 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...

            • 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…

              • 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.

                • 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…

                  • 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!

                    • File encryption at rest.

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

                      • 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.

                                • Provide Ransomware detection and recovery

                                  We are seeing an increase in this cases of cryptowall and ramsonware, were users see their computers infected with this virus.

                                  The virus will encrypt all user files (jpg, pdf, xlsx,docx, etc.) except system files.

                                  It would be very helpful, to have the option to have OneDrive files restored to a previous date, even if that option was only available at a OneDrive Support level.

                                  If this option is not possible, due to server space to store all info in duplicated, it would be easier from the technical side to block .ccc, .micro, and other known file extensions in OneDrive.

                                    Big update — Today we’re rolling out ransomware detection & recovery for Office 365 Home & Personal subscribers. We can now detect ransomware attacks and help you restore your OneDrive to a state before files were compromised. If an attack is detected, you will be alerted through an email, mobile, or desktop notification and guided through a recovery process where you’ll be able to restore your files to the state they were in before they were compromised.

                                    To enable the recovery process, we’re bringing over the Files Restore feature from OneDrive for Business to your personal OneDrive account. Files Restore allows you to restore your entire OneDrive to a previous point in time within the last 30 days. In addition to helping recover from an attack, Files Restore helps with an accidental mass delete, file corruption, or other catastrophic event.

                                    For more information, check out our blog post here — …

                                  • 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?

                                    • Offline folder support on iOS

                                      Since OneDrive now support offline file in iOS, I hope OneDrive team can implement selecting folders for offline as well. I would be much easier to have this option instead of one my one selecting each files in the folder. Do hope OneDrive will implement this. Thank you

                                      • create anonymous guest links on the folder just like files in OD4B

                                        For files you can create anonymous guest links on the file and set it to be view/edit and require sign-in or not but you can't for a folder.

                                        In the consumer version of OneDrive you can do this on folders. Please make this available in OD4B. This is a huge missing feature that may cause us to go back to Dropbox.

                                          Thanks for the suggestion. You can now create anonymous links to folders in OneDrive and SharePoint. Admins can also control whether anonymous links are available to users within the tenant.

                                        • Shared folder sync on Mac

                                          I am missing this , my collegues who use windows can use onedrive like a dropbox to share files but as a Mac user I have to use the browser to view update etc.
