  2. allow moving app to sdcard

    Allow the app to be moved to SD card, it will help in saving space on devices with smaller internal storage

  3. 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.

  5. Have the capability to scan directly to a shared folder on the phone app.

    Being able to quickly scan a document to one of your "owned" OneDrive folders is a great feature (While you are in the folder all you do is press "+" then the scan symbol.) You even have the option to name it. However, this feature within "shared" folders is not available. it would be even more powerful if you could grant others permission to use this productive scan feature in a folder you "shared" with them.

  6. download folder

    I haven't been able to download a folder. I didn't find where it is on my device - quickpik at least didnt find -when I make it available offline, so I had to select all files in a folder to really download them.

  7. 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.

  8. face recognition tags

    Add a feature to recognize and group faces/people by their name.
    OneDrive then can identify people by names and make albums or tags according to that.
    this function is possible in apps like google photos, and it works well.

  9. Photo View only Photos folder(Android app)

    Hi

    Why the Photo view(Android app) show all image files from OneDrive? It's better If I can choose what folder I want to see when I use Photo View featute or is it possible Photo view default folder is Photos folder?
    Now the photo view is useless if I want to show my photos taken from cameras.

    BR

  10. Recent folder option

    Make "Recent folder(s)" option in menu in the app, cause it's very annoying to search target folder again and again, if we want to orginise our files in storage. Will be very helpful.

  12. Automatic Photo Upload - in Folders

    Since an update a long time ago, onedrive syncs all folders with pictures if you want to. But it uploads it into only one Onedrive folder.

    If you want your photos, your WhatsApp pictures and your Screenshots uploaded, all are uploaded into one folder and you have to manually sort them again.

    I'd like to have an option to upload all photos in folders with the names they have on my phone, so you have i.e. a screenshot folder, a WhatsApp folder etc.

  14. Give users ability to turn off notifications for Camera Upload

    The current app throws notifications for everything: on image upload, upload failed, waiting for wi-fi; it's all just too much and there's no need for any of them. Even the image failed gets a retry and succeeds.

  15. Add the native fingerprint API available in Android marshmallow!

    Add the new APIs into the app! Or much more convenient to unlock it that way

  17. Improve photo gallery in Android

    If your camera roll folder is very large (thousands of pictures) navigating it is nearly impossible. Improving the search and filtering capabilities would make the app infinitely better. For example, being able to navigate to a specific month (like Windows phone app does) or search for some other metadata than tags (maybe location if avaliable).

    Thanks!
