Why not make the mobile version just like the Desktop app?
You should be able to select a folder (or multiple folders) from your mobile device and OneDrive should upload all the files (not just photos or videos) in that folder automatically and every time you modify one of the files in that folder or add a new file, it should automatically sync it with the cloud.
Unbelievably, OneDrive, nor Dropbox nor Google Drive currently offer such feature. You can only get this feature with a third party app like FolderSync (paid app - Android).
This should be a native feature. Add it.
We understand the request and will think about it. Thanks for the suggestion!
I made this suggestion like a week ago, I really hope it gets implemented! As of now I am using FolderSync on android.

For years i've had a mobile phone more powerful than my PC, but limited by dumb apps that used 100mb and four 1Ghz cores to get less functionality than a 50 mb app running in a 1-core 1Ghz PC. I just wonder why mobile apps have to have a limited functionality.
Yeah this is ridiculous, over 500,000 OneDrive users had to download and buy a third party app to get this feature.

This is much needed
Agree with all this. I use a DropBox account with 3rd party app DropSync on Android. If OneDrive had this native I'd move over immediately.
Oh, I think you misunderstood me. It's not to offline a folder.
This is what I was referring to: Let's assume you have folder in the internal memory of your phone called "X-Files". In that folders you have documents, pictures, music, zip files, exe files, etc.
Now you want this entire folder to be uploaded to the cloud (OneDrive in this case). So you go to OneDrive, look on your local files and select this folder to get it "Synced". So now OneDrive will upload this folder and all its files from your phone to OneDrive cloud. When you add new files to this folder, you want that OneDrive upload those new files automatically. And if you modified a document, you want that OneDrive updates/reupload it as well. That's the feature missing here.
I had to buy a third party app to get this feature with OneDrive when it should've been included by default.
The Box client does this, and is a really useful feature if you want to offline a folder with more than a few items

To have these feature, I had to pay for these apps:
OneDrive should have this feature enabled by default. Please add it.
It is such a simple yet powerful feature!
