  6. Photos - Allow synchronized delete (i.e. both on OneDrive and device)

    I'd like to have the option to delete photo from device and from cloud - just as it works on Windows 10 (from everywhere on the device).
    If that is not possible - and it most probably is not - have the opportunity to delete from device when deleting in OneDrive.
    Or at least have the opportunity to identify differences and do it as bulk operation manually.
    Thank you!

  7. Make onedrive not crashing when chrome casting photos and videos.

    After one photo or video the onedrive app crashes on android when chromecasting.

    It has been a bug for a long time and it should be fixed.

  8. Slideshow - Google Chromecast - Onedrive on Android

    Slideshow possibility on Onedrive for Android. Slideshow should be customizable (time between slides), Control via Mobile.
    Google Drive has this feature!
    With PC and Chrome browser I have Basic Onedrive Slideshow feature, but this also should be enhanced

  9. More options for music playback on the OneDrive mobile app

    Playing music on the app is very poor. There is no real music player and it does not display file tags or cover art. Please improve music playback on the OneDrive app!

  10. Fix PDF viewing/editing problems

    There are a bunch of complaints on this forum surround the PDF viewer/editor built into OneDrive. I also see similar PDF issues in OneNote.

    One way to handle these is to let us use another PDF viewer/editor (e.g. Xodo) natively inside OneDrive. This means if I open a file from OneDrive and make annotations using Xodo, the file gets saved back to OneDrive directly. Without me having to save it to the tablet manually, then upload it to OneDrive manually and delete the unedited copy of the PDF from OneDrive.

    Another option is for Microsoft to develop it's own full-featured…

  12. Change sync folder photos

    I'd like to be able to select which OneDrive folder my photos sync to. Currently there is a default folder called Camera Roll that has thousands of photos. I would like to be able to start fresh in a new folder so I don't have to scroll through so many photos when I view the folder contents. Since I can't change which folders my phone syncs to, I have to move photos from the original folder to a new folder and that's very time consuming.

  13. It's really hard to work on files in android. If I open a .txt file there is no editor nor way to display the file properly.

    Need a way to display and edit text files. I save files as .txt for notes and can't display on android devices and also there is no editor mapped for them.

  16. Clear up notifications page

    Create a button to clear the notifications page on the onedrive app.

    In the beggining of the notifications it automatically created albuns and the annoying notifications remain and cant be deleted. Need a button that enables it to be deleted. Even better if you van choose what to delete.

  17. Show object Modification Date in File Lists

    When looking at details of files of objects using an Android device, as well as showing Creation Date for an object, also show Modification Date. This would then also allow Sorting of Objects on Modification Date which would greatly assist finding objects.

  19. Folder mapping from folder photos on phone to folders on onedrive

    should be able to select the folder in one drive corresponding to the local photos folder on phone. Makes life easier by having structured pics. It's a mess as all go in same folder.

  20. Onedrive for Android is not useable

    Onedrive for Android is just not good enough: it works quite differently from how it works on Windows and usually it does not work at all.

    Two features of Onedrive on Windows that are critical are: it is integrated with Windows filing so can find folders and files as if they were local, and it saves local duplicate copies on PC. Onedrive for Android does neither which makes it almost useless (dependent on an internet connection).

    What makes it completely useless is that I usually get a message that "This folder can't be displayed. Make sure you're connected to a…
