  1. 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.

  2. 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.

    Enable OneDrive to be a file manager inside Android so I can submit files to an app directly from OneDrive.

  7. 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…

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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!

  17. Could put the location of a file, useful while searching for a file

    Say you wanna search "Mom" in search, you can do so and the files matching come up, but when you tap the 'i' (Information/Properties) button there's a shortcut in there to the folder location of the file

  18. 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…

  20. Mkv Support

    I came from Using Dropbox, and on Dropbox they have MKV codec Support, so i could play some movies directly from mobile and web apps, but i migrate to OneDrive because it has office 365, and i really miss the mkv support from Dropbox and this is a missing function on Onedrive. And i Know that a lot of users would be glad if you add that mkv support.
