  1. Disable Photos Icon option

    For privacy just add the function to "disable photos icon" option, on OneDrive main screen. I prefer to access it directly, from the folders, on "archives" icon.

    /// Para privacidade, favor adicionar a função "desativar ícone de fotos", na tela principal do OneDrive. Prefiro acessá-las diretamente, nas pastas, do ícone "arquivos".

  3. Provide favorite/recent folders/paths

    Right now every time you open the OneDrive App on Android (and maybe other OS) you start in the root directory of your storage. The same is true if you want to upload any file, you always start from the root (if you share the file with OneDrive). This makes frequent uploads to certain folders with a deeper hierarchy very painful as you have to navigate to the same folder over and over again without the possibility to save your frequently visited folder as favorite or to access recent paths/folders.

    So I suggest adding a feature to store favorite paths.…

  5. Restore the tagging feature in Onedrive

    Tagging photos in Onedrive has been a regular practice for me. I have thousands of photos, and tagging them allows me to filter, count, and search them easily. A recent version of Onedrive removed much of the tagging functionality. I find this disappointing since I relied on it so much. I would like to see tagging support restored in a future release of Onedrive.

  6. Regarding offline access behavior for files being uploaded to OneDrive for Business

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Business にアップロードしているファイルのオフライン アクセスの動作について
    Regarding offline access behavior for files being uploaded to OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):
    現時点での、Android 版 アプリにおいて、OneDrive for Business 内のアイテムにオンライン環境で一度でもアクセスを行った場合、アイテムへのアクセス情報がキャッシュされ、[オフラインで保持] の機能を利用しなくても、オフラインの状態で当該アイテムの閲覧が可能な動作である。
    上記でキャッシュされた情報は、OneDrive のキャッシュクリアや、端末の再起動では解消できず、アプリのサインアウトとサインインを行わない限り保持されてしまう状況のため、OneDrive for Business の標準機能として、オンライン環境でアクセスしたファイルに関するキャッシュが保存されないよう制御するための機能の実装を要望します。

    Currently, on the Android version of the app, if an item in OneDrive for Business is accessed online even once, the access information for the item is cached, and that item can be read offline without using the “make available offline” function.
    The aforementioned cached information cannot be deleted by restarting the device or clearing the OneDrive cache, but only by signing out and signing back…

  7. Ability to star files and folders

    Please add an option to star important files and folders. This would enable viewing all those in one central location.

  8. Specify a folder for Camera Upload

    I would like to be able to specify the folder that photos are uploaded to when using Camera Upload. Right now they are put on the default folder on my account, but I need them to be in a shared folder that I have added to my OneDrive.

  10. Please allow Auto Gallery Backup from SD Card

    If Google Photos is able to backup from my SD Card, why can't OneDrive? Please add the ability to Auto Gallery backup from the Camera when photos are saved on SD card.

  11. Search by date on photo.

    Users are able to receive an album of 'on this day' photos everday. Photos that were taken on a specific date. However there is no reliable search capability to all users to search photos by month or date. This is frustrating as the metadata is stored on each photo.

  14. More Free Space

    Samsung forced us to switch to OneDrive from Samsung Cloud, but they gave us 15GB of free storage. We may continue to have that space for one year, but after that we only are allowed 5GB. The claims that the move to OneDrive will allow us more space are lies, and this benefits only Microsoft and Samsung. The users lose. The OneDrive free space amount should be 20GB. Then, it'll be competitive and a true upgrade. As opposed to a scam.

  16. Do not delete the photos from the One drive when you delete the photos in the phone's gallery.

    Do not delete the photos from the One drive when you delete the photos in the phone's gallery.
    Most of the time I just want to gain space on my phone and keep the photos and videos saved in One Drive.

    It is not possible to send files to users with which you have no chat history on Teams by using the “Send a copy” function on files in the OneDrive mobile app.
    While you can search for users, attempting to use “Send a copy” will not show anything in the Teams chat log, so please fix this.

  18. 同期するフォルダを限定したい

    すべてのファイルを自動バックアップすると、すぐに容量が足りなくなる。容量不足を防ぐため、バックアップするフォルダを限定したい。
    また、一旦アップロードされたデータも、ダウンロード操作ではなく、移動やコピーで手元のデバイスに移したい。

  20. Show full pdf page with the annotation feature

    Hi, I report the problem using the OneDrive app with Samsung Galaxy Tab S7. Unfortunately, there's a limitation of the app when you're using the "annotation" feature to annotate directly on the pdf contained in a shared folder in OneDrive. As it's shown in the picture, the app doesn't allow you to see the beginning of the pdf, both in horizontally and vertically mode. I hope this problem can be solved because it's really an important feature that shortens the times a lot since it would auto-synchronize after you finish writing over the pdf. Thanks
