  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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Making it possible to delete photos from cloud when deleting from device, as it was in windows phone devices

    When deleting photos on windows phone, a message appears asking if you would like to delete it from onedrive cloud also. This is very useful in order to keep in cloud only needed photos. This message does not appear in android device, so that to keep cloud clean, after deletin photos on device, you have to do the same on onedrive.

  10. Can't display Unicode text(such as Chinese or Japanese) when preview Markdown file in android app.

    As I know OneDrive can preview markdown file, but now it seems Unicode character can't be displayed correctly.
    (I can't attach md file because it's not allowed in uservoice)

    It's only happened in android app, iOS and Web is OK, so I think it's a bug.

  13. Additional Security layer

    You should have the ability to password protect individual files or folders. Plus, it feels a bit slow.

  16. Offline Features

    Once I tag files or folders as "Keep Offline", OneDrive starts syncing them with my device (in this case Samsung A9Pro Phone), the size of folder happens to be higher than the space available on my phone. OneDrive keeps caching them offline till all space is used up. Here's what OneDrive should do -
    1. If the size of the file / folder selected exceeds the space available on phone / device, it should notify the user and stop "offlining" the files, till the total size of user selection comes below the space available in device.
    2. OneDrive should also…
