    • "Sync now" button

      I'm a heavy OneDrive user and I use it to keep my Android camera photos updated. My main problem doing this is that the OneDrive app has only 2 options for syncing pictures - you can either tell it to sync every time there's a new picture, or only when the phone is charging.

      While I like the "upload only when charging" option sometimes I like to take a quick picture and sync the phone - which sucks because then I have to go and turn off the "upload only when charging" option. Then after I'm done I have to…

        • make folders available offline on Android

          When I saw that the feature for offline access was marked as "done", I was thrilled, but rapidly disappointed when I realized it's been implemented for individual files only. What if we want to keep an entire folder in sync? Isn't that the purpose of sync cloud storage?

          • Option to "keep both files or overwrite old file" while uploading file with the same name as a existing file on Android

            Could you implement the "keep both files or overwrite old file"- option on the OneDrive App for Android?? when i upload a file on my computer and a file with the same name does exist already on OneDrive, i get a warning that bthe file could noz be uploaded cause it does exist already and i can chose to keep both or overwrite the existing one.
            This option is missing on the Android App. One Drive on Android will automaticly rename the new file (add a (1) ) and upload it and i have to delet the older version manualy…

              • Reduce memory usage while running in the background

                It is a bit silly that OneDrive for Android uses on average 64MB of RAM when just sitting idle in the background.

                OneDrive support even refused to answer why it needs to force itself to stay running in the background all the time so if it actually isn't needed the high memory usage is even worse. Forcing an app to remain running all the time if it isn't needed is called "one of the worst memory management mistakes an app can make" in the Android SDK documentation.

                • Create a "OneDrive Photos" app

                  I would like you could create a dedicated OneDrive Photos app, like Google Photos is separated from Google Drive (offering a photos-focused app).

                  In Windows Mobile is not problem: the gallery is, at the same time, the "gallery" you have in OneDrive. You don't need to open the OneDrive app, and your Photos sync with your local gallery app.

                  Why we can't have something similar to the Google Photos or Windows Mobile experience?

                  Thank you and sorry for my grammar mistakes, I Hope you understand me.

                  • Create structured folders for mobile additional uploaded folders like whatsapp

                    From version 3.9 its possible to sync additional folders to OneDrive. However I dont want my whatsapp pictures, my screenshots etc. to be in the same folder as my camera pictures (Camera Roll). It would be great to have folders structure. In Copy.com RIP you had a main upload folder and inside folder per device with the device camera, folders for whatsapp videos, whatsapp pictures etc...

                    • Offline Folders

                      Need support adding for making entire folders/sub-folders available offline rather than just individual files, then it would rival other services such as cubby and this the only thing that would need to happen for my entire company to switch to using one drive instead.

                        • Reduce Image size and quality

                          We want an option to control the image size and quality for the photos of canera roll before uploading. Some images may be 5+ MB we need an option to all the app to compress its size before uploading it to OneDrive account.

                            On the Windows photos app, you are able to quickly navigate to specific time periods. This would be a great feature to incorporate into the photos section of the OneDrive app!

                                  • Download

                                    1. Add "select all" box. I don't have to tic 50 times for 50 items!

                                    2. Allow folder download instead of just fils. I need to download the whole folder

                                    3. Allow download to SD card, and allow creating new folder.

                                    Honestly, the download function is so poor and needs serious attention and improvements

                                    • Let OneDrive for Android store files on external memory

                                      I wish choose external memory to store OneDrive's files instead to store them in internal memory.

                                        Add multiple personal accounts to OneDrive for Android. You have it for the Win 10 Mobile app.

                                        • I want you to make it possible to edit text files on OneDrive for Business on mobile devices

                                          Since text (.txt) files are basic files for entering and saving letters, I would like you to create an option that allows the editing of text files saved on OneDrive for Business on mobile devices. It is very inconvenient to have to change text files into Word documents every time you want to edit them. So, wouldn`t you please create a function that allows to directly edit text files in the OneDrive app or add a function to the Word for mobile app that makes it possible to open and edit text files on mobile devices? Google is already offering…
