  1. Hidden files

    OneDrive needs to maintain hidden/read-only status across platforms when synchronized.

    Folders appear on Android app despite being set to hidden on Windows.

  2. 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.

  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. 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?

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  12. 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

  13. Rename File on Upload - Android app

    Would be nice if one could rename a file before it is uploaded. Basically some apps generate files (invoices for example) with same anmes and if you need to generate 2+ files, OneDrive will fail to upload the second+ because of the name. So give us the opportunity to rename the file before it is uploaded is very important!

  15. Burst Mode on Android results in all photos uploaded

    on the Google Pixel, and presumably other Android phones with stock camera, "Burst Mode" spams the OneDrive camera roll. the problem is that burst mode takes dozens of photos and puts them in a sub folder in the Android camera folder. instead of asking, OneDrive auto selects these folders for upload. then I end up with hundreds of the same photo on my camera roll. in the attached screenshot I have turned them off but that is not sustainable. OneDrive needs to learn how to deal with this - maybe by the simple solution of not auto uploading subfolders, and…

  16. Allow different PDF reader as default

    Right now the default is the built-in OneDrive PDF reader. If you want to use another reader you need to open the elliptical menu and tap "open in other viewer". We should be able to default to the system's default PDF viewer.

  17. 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.

  18. be able to save list view as default

    It's ridiculous that large tile view is the default, further ridiculous that list view cannot be saved and must be manually reset over and over. OneDrive is a pain for anyone sorting documents. MiXplorer is the file manager to learn from.
