  3. Making a multi select button for files, instead of having to individually select them

    Literally cut and dry. There should be a button that you can press to select all the files in a folder, instead of having to select one at a time.

  6. 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.

    Many android camera related apps are already offering some sort of sorting, which ends up as folders on the android device. So I think this one is…

  8. can listen to music in the background with the one drive app while screen is locked

    Music must keep playing in background while screen is locked or app is in background. With any other music player, if you lock the screen you can still listen to your music, but with the one drive app it is not possible, because when you lock the screen the music stops.

  9. Provide an option to switch between multiple accounts

    A main drawback of one drive application is it doesn't have an option to use multiple accounts easily. Now a user need to sign out the current account to use another one, this is very painful . Please provide an option to switch multiple accounts like Google drive.

  11. Photos - Allow synchronized delete (i.e. both on OneDrive and device)

    I'd like to have the option to delete photo from device and from cloud - just as it works on Windows 10 (from everywhere on the device).
    If that is not possible - and it most probably is not - have the opportunity to delete from device when deleting in OneDrive.
    Or at least have the opportunity to identify differences and do it as bulk operation manually.
    Thank you!

  13. Allow different PDF reader as default

    Right now the default is the built-in OneDrive PDF reader. If you want to use another reader you need to open the elliptical menu and tap "open in other viewer". We should be able to default to the system's default PDF viewer.

  14. Allow Wi-fi only upload.

    Right now, wifi only upload only support camera photos. It would be nice to allow wifi only upload for all files. In case users walk out of wifi range, it won't use mobile data.

  15. 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?

  16. Turn photo tags back on

    Bring back the photo "tags" or hashtags. It was so much easier to find a picture of say my truck or flowers by searching "truck"/"flowers instead of scrolling for it through the 15,000 selfies of the kids.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
