  1. Fast Scroll Bar for App Files Tab

    Suggestion to implement a right-hand Fast Scroll scrollbar on the Android App in the Files view. It becomes quite unwieldy when you have dozens -- maybe a hundred -- folders and you need to swipe down-down-down many times to the correct folder as opposed to using a scroll bar (such as on the Photos view) to reach the location quickly (say, if ordered alphabetically).

  2. Camera upload Folders

    When Camera upload detects a new folder it asks if you wish t backup or skip, if you choose to backup it would be most useful if it would backup to the folder it has detected rather than into Camera Roll, for example I ahve a folder on my phone call My Daughters, yet it backed up the photos to camera roll rather than my daughters.

  3. 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".

  4. 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!

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Videos stop when the phone auto rotates and video playing won't stop your phone from going to sleep.

    Since the recent update on my android device, my videos will play but the phone goes to sleep while the video plays. This has never happened before. Also the phone stops playing video when the phone auto rotates. These were never an issue before but now it's kinda inconvenient. Using LG stylo 2

  10. Show file modification date at a glance

    With the new update, the files don't show the last modified date as they used to, now they show the creation date.
    I love Onedrive because I use it to study directly from my tablet; when I need to change something in the text, I correct the mistake in the labtop and automatically the new file is uploaded in the tablet. I find it very useful to see at a glance, as I used to do before the new update, the last date of the new file, in order to be sure that I'm working with the more recent version.

  15. Show photos full screen

    The current integrated photo viewer in the OneDrive app has a persistent black bar at the top of the screen. The photo viewer should display the photo on the entire screen. Remove the black bar at the top to maximize screen usage.

    This is most noticeable on notchless phones.

  16. Making it possible to delete photos from cloud when deleting from device, as it was in windows phone devices

    When deleting photos on windows phone, a message appears asking if you would like to delete it from onedrive cloud also. This is very useful in order to keep in cloud only needed photos. This message does not appear in android device, so that to keep cloud clean, after deletin photos on device, you have to do the same on onedrive.

  18. OneDrive for Andriod Offline location option

    Hello...It would be very helpful if you could allow me to select an SD Storage location to store my OneDrive offline cache. This way I can take my best videos to show people without sucking up my data when I'm not on Wifi. I just don't have the internal space to have a very large offline cache so this would help me by allowing me to point it to a larger SD Card.
