  1. How to launch Onedrive app from my app in a specific folder?

    Hey guys what's up?

    So as I said in the title. I'm trying to launch dropbox app from my app in the folder created by my app. How can I do that?

    PackageManager pm = getApplicationContext().getPackageManager();

                Intent intent = pm.getLaunchIntentForPackage("com.microsoft.skydrive");
    
    intent.addFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK);
    startActivity(intent);

    This code will launch the OneDrive app.

  2. Allow documents be saved as templates online

    There should be an option to save files as a template online, like on the desktop version. Much of my work is repetitive and I rely on templates to complete my work quickly, when using the Word App on my tablet, not having that feature makes it more difficult for me; my tablet serves to alleviate the weight of my laptop, but this feature missing also sets me back.

  4. Please add support for Nexus Imprint in OneDrive.

    Please add support for Nexus Imprint in OneDrive. It would add another level of security.

  7. Option to make OneDrive the default storage location for pictures and video

    OneDrive works great on Windows Mobile. It's much clunkier on Android. I would like the option of making OneDrive the default storage location for pictures and video.

    If I delete a picture on the phone, I don't want to have to go into OneDrive and delete it again after the OneDrive app has backed up the picture.

    I also don't want to fill up my phone's memory with pictures. I'd rather they go directly to OneDrive.

  8. 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.

  11. upload

    Hi team

    It would be great if you can add the facility to mention the uploading location against the folder that we mention the app to monitor for new files in the phone.

    Regards

  14. Rename Option While Uploading Any File

    It's quite a much needed feature if we can see an option to "Rename" any File/ Folder at the time of uploading it. Especially if we try to upload any image or document directly from WhatsApp or any other App.

  15. Скачивание папок на Android!!!

    Хотелось бы на Android возможность скачивать файлы с папками, так как папки не качает, нет возможности, очень не удобно, приходится все файлы с папки качать по отдельности, так бы сразу всю папку скачал бы и не ломал бы голову.
    Сделайте пожалуйста возможность скачивать папки. В чём проблема? Уже бы давно пора сделать, я уже и на бету подписался как месяц или второй, в надежде что появится эта возможность, так нет.
    Жду ответа...
    Влад.

  16. Offline lassen richtig übersetzen

    The option "keep offline" in the German app is badly translated. It should be like "offline verfügbar" But not "offline lassen"

  17. Don't look up databases that don't exist in the background

    In adb I can see that onedrive is constantly trying to acces /data/user/com.microsoft.skydrive/files/aria/offllinestoragelow.db and offlinestorageimmediate.db even though they don't exist. Stop that.

  18. When OneDrive detects a new image folder, actually say the name of the folder in the Notification

    The feature to ask if you want to upload a folder that has photos in it is already there, but I think OneDrive should specify what the name of the folder is

  20. Disable hamburger button animation for Navigation Drawer

    I want to make you aware that you made an oversight by not disabling the hamburger button animation for the Navigation Drawer. There is a bug in the design libraries which causes this animation to be enabled by default.

    I will post two paragraphs from an article hosted on a third-party site in which Roman Nurik (A well known Design Advocate that works for Google) explains that an animated hamburger button should not be used for a Navigation Drawer at all.

    "One of the solutions Google came up with between pre-L and L designs was the spinning arrow animation. As…
