  1. 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…

    • Store OneDrive offline files on SD card on Samsung devices

      -adjusted the title-

      Ryan, there is a separate topic where you said this was working, it's NOT for any Samsung users and probably others!

      You seem to be ignoring that thread, titled,'Allow OneDrive app on Android to be moved to SD card including storing offline files'.

      Could you please comment here, or at least back in the other topic, so all of us still actively using it get some feedback as to your progress on solving the problem on the most widely used mobile platform in the world (yes there are more Samsungs than iPhones)?

      I am attaching the threads…

        We shipped support for installing the OneDrive app on an SD card, but any files taken offline still go to internal storage. We do have plan to enable offline files to be stored on SD card. I’ll update status as we get further along.

        • Select multiple photos drags to Album menu

          When selecting multiple photos in menu Photos, if user drags to left, app understands that you want to move to Albums menu.

          Is there a way to once you start selecting multiple photos it locks to the tab All?

          This seems to be by design, but could and should be improved. Thanks.

            • No idea. Wish there were better control over users though. Someone with more computer knowledge as was and is the case with me . they have b

              Better control over user accounts for inexperienced as I certainly was. They were able to go from user to family , partner ,administrator, establish a domain and take my identity in front of me watching and then use it to wreak havoc in my life. Talk about a hard way to learn the basics.

                    • OneDrive Music app

                      I would like you to create a dedicated OneDrive Music app, where I can play music stored in my OneDrive music locker.

                      This app should be able to cache music to listen offline, and even maybe automatically upload music from my device to OneDrive.

                      Microsoft used to have Groove Music for Android, but they are killing it.

                      • face recognition tags

                        Add a feature to recognize and group faces/people by their name.
                        OneDrive then can identify people by names and make albums or tags according to that.
                        this function is possible in apps like google photos, and it works well.

                        • 'On this day' view and notification on Android

                          One of my favorite features on an OneDrive competitor product was that It used to send me a 'on this day' notification every morning, showing photographs of that day from previous years. It used to be a great way to start the morning. I am badly missing this feature.

                            should be able to select the folder in one drive corresponding to the local photos folder on phone. Makes life easier by having structured pics. It's a mess as all go in same folder.

                                • 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!

                                  • Delayed Sync for Camera Photos on Mobile

                                    When photo backup is enabled, OneDrive starts uploading photo as soon as its taken. There is always a chance user took blurred photos and want to delete them before they're uploaded.

                                    Adding few minutes delay to upload camera roll photos will allow users to delete any photos which are not good.

                                    It could be a setting in options with 5min, 10min, 15min delay in drop-down menu.
