  4. Separate folders when automatically uploading from multiple sources on mobile

    Within the Android app, OneDrive suggests you backup photos from multiple apps/folders/sources on your phone. This is a good feature to keep everything synced with the cloud, however it is very disorganized to throw all of these files in the base Camera Roll folder. Each source (every app/folder) should have it's own folder within Camera Roll. They all have different naming conventions, so it's difficult to dissect which photo came from which app.

    Many android camera related apps are already offering some sort of sorting, which ends up as folders on the android device. So I think this one is…

  5. Only show photos from the pictures folder on photos tab on the OneDrive app

    At the moment, I have my photos backed up into the pictures folder from my iPhone, and tonnes of textures and pngs since I do game development. Whenever I go to my photos tab in the app it just gets overwhelmed with all these ugly texture maps, instead of my photos. The feature to only show photos from the pictures folder is on the web version, why isn't it on the app??

  6. Include Folders In Search Results

    When I search in the Android app it will display matching files. However, sometimes, I am looking for a particular folder to drill into. Therefore, when I search, please also display matching folders in my OneDrive.

  8. Widget text customisation

    Currently, Widget text and icons are determined by the selected directory, with no way to customise either. This makes no allowances for having both a "Business" and "Personal" account. I wanted to have two 1x1 icons, for direct navigation to each onedrive root directory (aka "Files"). I found it created two completely identical widgets, with no way to identify which connects to which account. I've compromised by making one direct to a sub-folder, but, short of changing the whole onedrive file structure, to nest inside an explicitly named sub-folder (which will affect the drives on PC), it relys on me…

  13. Fix OneDrive from showing incorrect MP4 format dates

    Fix OneDrive from showing incorrect MP4 format dates
    I see that the Date Taken tag is missing from the mobile apps for .MP4 only. The Date Taken tag is present on the One Drive Web.

    All other formats (Mov, JPG, ETC) show the Date Taken tag on the app.

  15. Please let me view the original image before downloading, instead of a compressed thumbnail image.

    Because compressed thumbnail image has colour banding issue. Like I doing mobile UI design, I would export .png image to OneDrive, the I can view it on my phone. But OneDrive will show me a compressed image if I don't download the image. I want to view original image without downloading.

  17. Enable drag and drop between apps

    Enable option to upload new files from a different app (mail, social media, etc) to onedrive by drag and drop when using a multi window on Android devices. Allow to drag and drop files from one drive to office apps (like photos to a presentation or word file). This would boast productivity significantly in tablet or other mobile devices since nowadays all our files are on the cloud and without drag and dropping the process is cumbersome and not used frequently because of it.

  18. Choose when to automatically upload from to avoid duplication

    Have a feature where you can add a date to upload from. When I got a new phone, one drive uploaded all my photos again. Every time I turned on automatic camera upload, it would start again from scratch! I had to stop automatic camera upload and now have to upload manually which isn't ideal. Having the option to choose when to upload from would make it easier to manage what's uploaded. It's a bit all or nothing at the moment!
