  1. OneDrive app pdf annotation undo button

    Hello, I would like to suggest the placement of a button to undo in the application OneDrive (Android) because as an architect I make many annotations and when I make a mistake typing or a stroke i have to delete everything. Please, i just need that button for my everyday work. Thank you very much for all the efforts you guys do.

        • Show full file/folder name

          I know lots of apps use the ellipsis/three dots (...) when the text reaches a character limit, but I think it's a little annoying when you have to go to the properties of the file/folder just to see it's full name. Just make a new type of view (detailed view?) or make it as an option in settings.

          • Folder Sync: What's the point of the "User Voice" website if the devs are just going to ignore our suggestions?

            Hello there,

            So over a year ago I suggested a new feature for the OneDrive app.

            Here is the link: https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/913516-onedrive-on-android/suggestions/20587369-folder-sync

            The idea/suggestion got an overwhelming amount of votes: over 7,300 in a year, which means that quite a lot of users agreed with it and wanted the feature to be included in the OneDrive app.

            After just a month, one of the admins responded "We understand the request and will think about it."

            We were so excited! But then, after 10 months of waiting for such basic yet important feature to be implemented, we got the this response:

            "Allow…

            • Sorting default

              It would be nice if the android app would use the same sorting default as the one set in our OneDrive on the web. As of right now, we have to sort every folder manually since the app's default is by icons.

              Would also be nice to set a default sorting for the app with just one tap that would sort it all from the root to the last subdirectory.

              • Add options of wifi-only and pause (all) for uploading

                Sometimes, one needs to upload big but not urgent files so it's just not worth it to use too much cellular data, so then the wifi-only option would be great. And in the same circumstance of not urgent files uploading, pausing the upload temperarily for some urgent need of quick network usage is also convenient.

                    • Separate folders when automatically uploading from multiple sources on mobile

                      Within the Android app, OneDrive suggests you backup photos from multiple apps/folders/sources on your phone. This is a good feature to keep everything synced with the cloud, however it is very disorganized to throw all of these files in the base Camera Roll folder. Each source (every app/folder) should have it's own folder within Camera Roll. They all have different naming conventions, so it's difficult to dissect which photo came from which app.

                      • Enable open all file types

                        Currently OneDrive for Android has an artifical limit on what files you can open. It would be very useful if that block was removed so that any file can be opened as long as there is an app installed that supports that file extension.

                        For example, currently you cannot open *.kbdx files even though you have keepassdroid (http://www.keepassdroid.com/) installed that handles that file extension. keepassdroid is open source so you can check its manifest (https://github.com/bpellin/keepassdroid/blob/master/AndroidManifest.xml) to see that it properly registers to handle *.kbdx files and you can verify that it works by opening such a…

                          • Allow opening files with associated apps

                            Currently if you try to view or open a text or html file in the Android app, you get an error, e.g. with the html Viewer:

                            Webpage not available

                            The webpage at file:///data/data/com.microsoft.skydrive/no_backup/stream_cache/useraccount/146089/default.htm could not be loaded because:

                            net::ERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND

                            Looks like a p0 scenario to me and I am surprised it doesn't work.

                                    It would be great if we have the option to select all and select none option like google drive.

                                    Also the android version does not have the option to ask for replace or keep all option if there is already a file with the same name like in windows web version.

                                    • smaller thumbnails

                                      the thumbnails in the android app for pictures are too big. it would be better if you can change the size or the count per row. instead of 2 big pictures 4 small pictures.
