  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…

    • OneDrive move to external on any Samsung still fails 6-2018!

      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 from just the…

        • '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.

          • 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.

                Allow to search within folders instead of just all of your OneDrive when you use the app search bar.

                • Microsoft version of Google Photos

                  I want to be able to sort what photo folders are visible on my onedrive phone app. As currently I get all the work photos and old photos I don't need on my phone, jumbled into the one photo section on my phone. Please just let me choose what photo folders are viewed in my photo section on the app. Thanks.

                      • O aplicativo é muito pesado

                        Trava toda hora e é lento para navegar. Não quero uma "versão light", quero as mesmas funções que os outros telefones tem, com agilidade e leveza. Estou num lenovo k6.

                            • 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.

                                • Allowable renaming of uploaded file when uploading like Google Drive

                                  When uploading a file to OneDrive you should be able to rename it when uploading it. Currently uploading it and hitting the check markis not very efficient or effective because then I have to go into one drive and rename it. If I forget to rename it then I usually forget what the document is in the future.

                                  Google drive has this feature and I am seriously considering switching to them and paying monthly for extra space just for this feature. I currently have the office package so my OneDrive storage is free however, not being able to rename my…

                                  • Folder seen through Andriod device is 6 or more months out of date from the OneDrive actual application.

                                    File sync of OneDrive does not shown recent file changes. For example, if I put on OneDrive a new utility bill, and I want to see that file, I can't see the file. If there is a new folder I can't see the new folder, but I can still see the files as they were in the previous folder location.

                                    • Badge shows change-count for shared files

                                      Currently the onedrive icon's badge on my Android home screen only shows the count of the number of new files. I want to be able to see when people have changed a file. It doesn't have to show the total number of changes made to a file just that a file has been edited. Basically it would be a count from the notifications screen.

                                          I am sharing a excel workbook via onedrive with a editable link. When I email the link to a person that i want to edit it does not allow them to edit. We are trying to edit from a mobile android device. The link goes to the online excel sheet but you cant edit the cells.
