  1. 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

  2. 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!

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. Enable pinning folders

    I use onedrive for cloud storage on my android. I would like to be able to pin specific folders, especially the camera roll, instead of having to repeatedly navigate through three or for extra folders.

  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. 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…

  9. Making a multi select button for files, instead of having to individually select them

    Literally cut and dry. There should be a button that you can press to select all the files in a folder, instead of having to select one at a time.

  10. Support for multiple personal OneDrive accounts in mobile app

    Please add support for multiple personal OneDrive accounts in mobile app. Other services already support this, why can't OneDrive have this feature?

    OneDrive is awesome but slow. Every single step takes a few seconds to load. Make it responsive!

  14. Show full path for camera upload folders

    Camera upload has an option to select folders to sync but there's no way to identify the identical folder you are syncing because there's no full path shown

  15. Allow uploads of mobile documents and sd card storage using the OneDrive app on Android

    Currently the only Device Storage upload options on the Android OneDrive app are Images, Videos, Audio, and Downloads. Provide the ability to upload from any folder. Add two additional options - "Documents" and "Device Storage" - to match the options found in "My Files".

  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. An option for undoing automatic enhance whiteboard

    Automatic whiteboard enhancement algorithms are weak and make mistakes most of times
    I think we need an option for turning off or undo enhancement.
    I've lost lots of my important photos because of this mistake

  19. Differentiate the additional folders in camera upload

    It's great to include those additional folders with camera upload, but sometimes apps label those folders with the same name and it's hard to tell which folder is for what app. Either having a way to preview what's in each folder or having the full folder location added to the list would be fabulous.

  20. Fix freezing of Android app

    The android app is unusable. I go into my camera roll folder and it just constantly freezes. I cannot scroll, it takes forever to refresh the latest photos and eventually I give up and use the website instead. Please fix it.
