  5. OneDrive does not allow playing a selection of songs on android device

    Hello,
    Would you kindly let me know how to play a selection of songs from OneDrive while I am texting or checking my emails? Currently, I can only play one song at a time, and if I minimize the window, it stops immediately. Last year, some people from MS Community advised me to uninstall OneDrive and Groove and re-install them to fix many problems including syncing issues. I did many tricks but at the end, I am having only this option on my Android device (Motorola Moto G2nd). On my Tablet (Asus) with W10, the situation is better where I…

  6. Add a scroll bar to the app for tablet devices

    When using the App on an Android Tablet, there is currently no scroll bar on the side of the window.
    A scroll bar would be a nice addition to let the user know how far down the list of files he is currently situated.

  7. Ability to Create New Folders When Sharing or Uploading From Other Apps. Google Drive Does It!

    I cannot create a new folder when sharing or uploading from another app.
    For example, today I found a cool wallpaper online. I found it in Firefox, then downloaded it to my phone. I use Google's photo app to manage my galleries. (I like having multiple backups.) Then I wanted to add the file to a collection I have in Onedrive of wallpapers.

    I hit the "Share" button and selected Onedrive. However, I wanted to add it to a new folder within the wallpaper folder. But I can't! I can only select existing folders within Onedrive. I cannot create a…

  8. Se pueda cambiar todo el contenido de todas las carpetas y las propias carpetas, ordenandolas por fecha, tamaño, etc.

    Resulta que me gusta tener las cosas ordenadas por orden alfabético y la aplicación lo permite, pero en cada carpeta y me gustaría que hubiese una opción para poder ordenar todo directamente por orden alfabético.

  10. I'm speak turkıs, Mobil uygulamanız da dosya yükleme sorunu var, bu sorun 2 aydır devam etmektedir. Google play de bir sürü yorum paptık...

    Uygulama düzgün çalışmıyor. Hiç bir şekilde mobil uygulamanızdan dosya yükleyemiyoruz. Microsoft neden duyarsız kalıyor... 2 aydır bu sorun devam etmekte sürekli size meil atıyorum ama ilğilenmiyorsunuz... Lütfen bu soruna bir çözüm bulun. Her seferinde karşıya dosya yüklemeye çalıştımızda "üzgünüz bi hatayla karşılaştık" diye hatayla karşılaşıyoruz . Acilen MİCROSOFT'un bir çözüm bulması gerekmektedir sayğılar....

  11. android offline folders accessible by other apps

    Just got my first Android phone (reluctantly coming from windows phone) and can not believe how broken the one drive experience is on this platform. I mark a few of my music folders to be available offline, but nothing else on the phone can see them. Even Groove Music, a Microsoft player, can't locate them. Even within onedrive I can only select one file at a time to play, so I can't queue up a music list. While my personal use case is music, this is a broken scenario for many one drive use cases and file types. I don't…

  13. Sync to actual file system

    Please allow syncing folders from and to the Android file system.

    On the desktop you can use shared folders conveniently to aggregate data from different people and stay in sync just using the file system. On Android you cannot.

    Use case background: Sharing select photos taken on Android phones by several people by just copying them into a shared folder. Using the file system is important here in order to
    a) have the files offline and
    b) (more importantly) be able to use our gallery app of choice to view them.

  14. Camera upload

    a user may take 10 photos, but finally decide to keep 2 of them. An option to perform camera upload regularly (as in the end of the day, instead of immediately after taking the photo) would make life easier. Now, even if I delete the photo from my camera roll 5 min aftrr takinv it, it will still be uploaded, so finally I'll have to clean up twice.

  15. Auto Sync Onedrive with Droid phones.

    Please allow auto sync with Droid phones, allowing files to sync with SD card. My phone is Galaxy S7 Active, but Onedrive is not recognized as trusted app. Even if you only sync one folder. Folder, not file!! I would prefer unlimited files or folders, but will take whatever you can offer.

  16. Stop downloading files when sharing!

    Hi all!

    When you are about to share a file to somebody else, OneDrive is forcing the user to use space on phone to first download the file and after that sending it away.

    How come Google Drive can send it direct but not OneDrive?

    This is one of alot of other feautres that are pushing me away from keep using OneDrive as my main cloud.

  18. Restrict which folders One\drive can scan and upload from. Would stop OneDrive finding "photo" folders such as music folders

    Have a setting (as in File History) that restricts Onedrive to scanning selected folders and not (for example) repeatedly scanning for new "photo" folders and finding music folders that have album covers and then wanting to upload those covers into my photo folders !! Very bad idea as album covers are NOT photos in the sense that I only want my photos to be from my (various) cameras.
