  1. Update OneDrive to a newer version that works with Chromebooks

    There is a problem with OneDrive on my Chromebook. (Chromebooks now run Android apps). My model is Google Pixelbook, and I downloaded OneDrive from Play Store. Now, when I tried to sign in to my Microsoft Account on the Android version of OneDrive on Google Pixelbook, I get a "sign-in failure" error message. More information about OneDrive in the Play Store shows "Last updated: 24th June 2016" and should be updated to work on all Chromebooks later than that exact date.

  2. Searching by date

    Option for search for date is necessary. I am sick of scrolling for hours or having to drag out the laptop to find a picture from a year ago

  3. When using the new scan button. Have an option along for jpeg

    When using the scan button, you get the following options, whiteboard, document, business card or photo but they all save as PDF,. Could we have a jpeg option to save directly to a specific folder, multiple photos.

  4. Improve photo gallery in Android

    If your camera roll folder is very large (thousands of pictures) navigating it is nearly impossible. Improving the search and filtering capabilities would make the app infinitely better. For example, being able to navigate to a specific month (like Windows phone app does) or search for some other metadata than tags (maybe location if avaliable).

    Thanks!

  6. Sort file and folders by date modified.

    Add sort files and folders by date modified. Most others have that option as the default. So frustrating to have to list from a to z because sorting by newest is almost worthless.

  7. Do not create a folder called "Camera Roll" when automatically uploading photos.

    OneDrive automatically creates a folder called "Camera Roll" when it uploads photos from my android phone. I wish it didn't do that. I would like to choose which OneDrive folder the photos are uploaded to.

  8. Give users ability to turn off notifications for Camera Upload

    The current app throws notifications for everything: on image upload, upload failed, waiting for wi-fi; it's all just too much and there's no need for any of them. Even the image failed gets a retry and succeeds.

  10. create a OneDrive folder in android photo gallery app.

    When downloading a photo or video from OneDrive to an Android phone, one needs to places the files in DCIM-->camera to be able to view them in the native gallery app.

    Could it be possible to have a folder called OneDrive automatically created and where all downloaded media would be found ?

    WeChat and Whatsapp are doing it, so it's possible... right ?

  14. Camera upload for OneDrive business

    It is unacceptable that you have less features in a paid service than the free. In addition, the camera upload is a very good standard feature that are already available for all competitors even in Business accounts.I work in a very large chemistry company , Employees can not automatically upload photo documentation of production equipment from a mobile device to onedrive. Should I tell the colleagues they have to create a private account ????

  16. Microsoft version of Google Photos

    I want to be able to sort what photo folders are visible on my onedrive phone app. As currently I get all the work photos and old photos I don't need on my phone, jumbled into the one photo section on my phone. Please just let me choose what photo folders are viewed in my photo section on the app. Thanks.

  18. 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.

  19. Custom Folder in OneDrive for automatic Photo Upload

    Onedrive loads the photos into the root directory in a folder. it would be better if you could select the folder in Onedrive yourself.

  20. Live Photos (Motion photos)

    This is the same request as mentioned here, but for Android: https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/913519-onedrive-on-ios/suggestions/10052856-live-photos

    Are there plans to automatically upload the .mp4 file that is created as part of the Live Photos (Motion photos)?

    It would be nice to have these "Live Photos" saved in OneDrive.
    In this way, we can also have them on our computer (in the folder Pictures), if we have OneDrive on it!
