  1. Quickly navigate to specific dates of photos

    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!

  2. 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…

  4. Shortcut to folders in Android Version

    Enable the possibility to add a shortcut folder in the home screen, or any screen, for folders in OneDrive. It will be amazing to access the files directly without opening the app and searching for the folder you want. It will be like our desktop.

  5. Sort camera uploads into folders

    Now that photos finally can upload from multiple folders on the phone, we should have the option to have them automatically sort into folders or albums on onedrive based on the folder they came from.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Add the option to change file display settings - show date modified

    The date listed for displaying files on Android is date created. This works for photos, but is unhelpful for files that are continually being updated. I suggest adding the option to change the date displayed to date modified rather than date created.

  11. 'On this day' view and notification on Android

    One of my favorite features on an OneDrive competitor product was that It used to send me a 'on this day' notification every morning, showing photographs of that day from previous years. It used to be a great way to start the morning. I am badly missing this feature.

  12. Enable posting photos directly to the Instagram from the OneDrive for Business Apps via Android devices.

    I am using the OneDrive for Business App by Android devices, and I have recognized that it cannot be posted the photo which has uploaded on OneDrive for Business to the Instagram directly. However, It is possible if the Apps for iOS devices. Therefore, I hope the feature of apps will be improved enables posting the photo directly via Android devices as well.

  13. Sync the albums folders.

    So I spend hours sorting my photos on my phone into folders, so I can actually find then when I want and don't have to scroll through 1000 photos under camera roll. Then it uploads to OneDrive and as far as I can tell is uploading all photos, but they are all under camera roll again and I have to spend several more hours creating and sorting. Can't you just take the whole album I already have created so they are already sorted?

  15. Automatically sync or just upload any folder on my phone, not just camera roll.

    I would love to be able to automatically sync or just upload any folder on my phone, not just the camera roll.
    That would make a great addition to a very good app.
