Separate folders when automatically uploading from multiple sources on mobile
Within the Android app, OneDrive suggests you backup photos from multiple apps/folders/sources on your phone. This is a good feature to keep everything synced with the cloud, however it is very disorganized to throw all of these files in the base Camera Roll folder. Each source (every app/folder) should have it's own folder within Camera Roll. They all have different naming conventions, so it's difficult to dissect which photo came from which app.
Hey guys, it's almost July 2021, is anyone there or are they all dead?
Requested in 2016 (highest voted)
Working on it since April 2020
It is now June 2021
Google already started they're payed cloud service to upload photos.
People will not be paying for two different clouds that should be doing the same.
I would say you have until maybe September to October to start seeing a huge drop in payed service subscribers if this isn't fixed by then.
You guys should also rethink this product's project/product manager
ótima ideia, melhor organização, tudo fica salvo, e no Pc vc pode escolher quais pastas quer ver/sincronizar...

This is an absolute necessary feature!
I currently have over 50.000 files in my "Camera Roll" folder... a complete mess!
Private/work whatsapp picture are mixed with family picture from camera. So stupid that they trow all picture in the same folder ! Not usable without this feature.
This is absolutely needed! Just as many others I'd like to backup not only my own pictures. I have many other folders to sync. e.g. pictures taken with WhatsApp, twitter or other sources, and I don't want them to mix up with my own pictures. I have about 1.400 own pictures, now mixed up with all possible files (not only pictures) in one large folder with all together more than 6.900 files inside. Please...(!!!) without using the source folders to separate and store the synchronized files inside, it's a **** of a mess and pretty difficult to find a special file!

Please sort out being able to back up gallery photos into their original files and NOT in one large file

need this to keep organized! so much trouble trying to find that one photo you backed up in OneDrive when you can clearly see where it is on your phone just because they are mixed up all together in the cloud...
I uploaded my photos to onedrive, now they are ALL mixed up and no rhyme or reason as to where they are placed. This is SO annoying. Will likely use a different cloud syncing app for photos if this persists.
it is insane that such a BASIC feature is still not a thing!
this has been requested a million times over the last 5 YEARS!
So still all my photo's of whatsapp, 9gag, signal, etc do all end up in the same folder. This is really annoying. Please implement this. What is the expected ETA Microsoft?
We needed this years and years ago. Hurry up already!!!
Yes please!!! I currently have 10 thousand images in my camera roll because, without thinking, I also enabled backup of image folders for messenger and such. Sigh.
We need this. Onedrive is not a viable backup otherwise.
Trochę nie rozumiem jak to ma działać i dlatego też nie jest to dla mnie i nie zgadzam się z tym
