  1. 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.

  2. Sort photos by date taken not date created in OneDrive

    When sorting photos by date, the app sorts by date file was created in OneDrive as opposed to the date when the photo was taken.

    When looking Photos menu, it list files by upload date or date created in OneDrive, from the user perspective, the date uploaded to OneDrive it's absolutely irrelevant.

    This has been around since before 2015, isn't it time to change how Photos menu lists the content or at least give user the option to choose?

    This bug defeats completely the Photo menu purpose, the one place to see all your mixed by date pics!

  3. 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.

  4. Bring back casting to Chromecast for Mobile devices

    Since update 5.29.1 for Android, cast to Chromecast when connected to a Wi-Fi network with a suitable device, was removed without any further notice.
    Please fix whatever instability issues you found and let users know what is included in the latest version.
    The What is new text is so old and untouched that the best selling point is the introduction of the PIN and no mention to what is removed if you update the app.

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  10. Create a "OneDrive Photos" app

    I would like you could create a dedicated OneDrive Photos app, like Google Photos is separated from Google Drive (offering a photos-focused app).

    In Windows Mobile is not problem: the gallery is, at the same time, the "gallery" you have in OneDrive. You don't need to open the OneDrive app, and your Photos sync with your local gallery app.

    Why we can't have something similar to the Google Photos or Windows Mobile experience?

    Thank you and sorry for my grammar mistakes, I Hope you understand me.

  11. When photos are uploaded automatically, there should be an option to organize them within folders of month or year, like the apple app

    Currently on the android app when photos are uploaded automatically, they all go into one folder and that folder is not able to be changed. This results in the user having one huge file with tens of thousands of photos with hundreds of GB. On the Apple one drive app there is an option for photos to be organized into months or years. It would be great if this feature could come over to the android app.

  12. OneDrive App for Amazon FireTV

    I am requesting an app built for use with the Amazon FireTV. It would be so cool to be able to watch your movies and pictures on the big screen with the family. We have a FireTV on all our TVs and hence, we can't look at our latest vacation memories.

  13. 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…

  16. 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/nobackup/streamcache/useraccount/146089/default.htm could not be loaded because:

    net::ERRFILENOT_FOUND

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

  17. TURN OFF WHITEBOARD ENHANCEMENT

    I took an image of 2 blocks in a diagram, with an arrow between them. It saved an image of an arrow pointing to a block. That is not what I wanted.

    I put the title in all-caps because I am very angry.

  18. Add "Copy To" function

    There is no function to copy files in OneDrive app from one folder to another folder. This is an essential function which would allow the user to properly manage their setup via the app. Since the "Move To" function already exists, it would be similar in its functionality.

    There are several workarounds this issue but they are cumbersome. One option is to share the selected files via OneDrive and select the destination folder. Another option is to save the selected files to your device and then upload them to the desired folder.

    Please add the "Copy To" function to the…

  19. Option to "keep both files or overwrite old file" while uploading file with the same name as a existing file on Android

    Could you implement the "keep both files or overwrite old file"- option on the OneDrive App for Android?? when i upload a file on my computer and a file with the same name does exist already on OneDrive, i get a warning that bthe file could noz be uploaded cause it does exist already and i can chose to keep both or overwrite the existing one.
    This option is missing on the Android App. One Drive on Android will automaticly rename the new file (add a (1) ) and upload it and i have to delet the older version manualy…

  20. I want you to make it possible to edit text files on OneDrive for Business on mobile devices

    Since text (.txt) files are basic files for entering and saving letters, I would like you to create an option that allows the editing of text files saved on OneDrive for Business on mobile devices. It is very inconvenient to have to change text files into Word documents every time you want to edit them. So, wouldn`t you please create a function that allows to directly edit text files in the OneDrive app or add a function to the Word for mobile app that makes it possible to open and edit text files on mobile devices? Google is already offering…
