  1. Jump to a date few years ago...

    Onedrive app: possibility to jump to exact day few years ago, instead of scrolling down to find those photos. My finger is almost killed now!

  2. 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 ????

  3. Camera upload should automatically create subfolders for photos that are grabbed from different locations

    Instead of uploading everything into a folder called 'camera roll' in OneDrive, this feature should automatically create subfolders for the extra locations of images that are automatically uploaded.

    E.g
    I set my phone to automatically upload my screenshots folder, camera folder, and downloads folder. But in OneDrive, everything is just uploaded into one place (camera roll) with no subfolders that help me sort my images!

    This is a must have feature for me and I would really appreciate it if you take the time to further make it more useful.

  5. ...provide the option to route OneDrive storage to the microSD card rather than using device memory.

    Device memory is very scarce on my machine, but I have tons of memory on my microSD card, more than enough to accomodate what I store in OneDrive. I need the ability to configure OneDrive to store its files on the microSD card rather than in device memory.

  7. 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.

  8. Select multiple photos drags to Album menu

    When selecting multiple photos in menu Photos, if user drags to left, app understands that you want to move to Albums menu.

    Is there a way to once you start selecting multiple photos it locks to the tab All?

    This seems to be by design, but could and should be improved. Thanks.

  9. 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.

  12. Favorite / Star Folders

    Would be great if you can mark folders as Favorite Folders / Star Folders and quickly navigate to these folders (like quick access in Windows)

  13. can listen to music in the background with the one drive app while screen is locked

    Music must keep playing in background while screen is locked or app is in background. With any other music player, if you lock the screen you can still listen to your music, but with the one drive app it is not possible, because when you lock the screen the music stops.

    Captions of photos I have typed online don't show up anywhere when viewing photos through the Android app. Also, one cannot add/change caption from Android app.

  17. 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.

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

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

  19. 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

  20. 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!
