  1. 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.

  2. Please remove the new photo backup notification!

    Every few minutes I see a notification saying "backing up your photos" I don't care! Do it in the background like you used to!

  3. Option to exclude certain folders from Photos tab in Android app

    I have over one hundred thousand work-related images in my OneDrive that I do not want showing up in the "Photos" tab with my personal photos for aesthetic and app performance reasons. There is currently a great option on OneDrive.com to limit the images that appear in the "Photos" tab to only those in the "Pictures" folder. However, this feature has not been extended to the iOS or Android apps. Please enable this option in the Android app.

  5. It's really hard to work on files in android. If I open a .txt file there is no editor nor way to display the file properly.

    Need a way to display and edit text files. I save files as .txt for notes and can't display on android devices and also there is no editor mapped for them.

  6. Ability to Copy files/folders as well as Move

    Same functionality as web where you have the option to copy or move a file/folder. Sometimes it's useful to copy a file to a folder rather than just move it, for example into a shared folder while retaining it in your existing file structure.

  8. 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.

  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.

  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!

  12. Update OneDrive to a newer version that works with Chromebooks

    There is a problem with OneDrive on my Chromebook. (Chromebooks now run Android apps). My model is Google Pixelbook, and I downloaded OneDrive from Play Store. Now, when I tried to sign in to my Microsoft Account on the Android version of OneDrive on Google Pixelbook, I get a "sign-in failure" error message. More information about OneDrive in the Play Store shows "Last updated: 24th June 2016" and should be updated to work on all Chromebooks later than that exact date.

  13. Improve the PDF reader

    Hey there.
    Recently I was using the OneDrive application in android, I found some features that would improve the application and of course its usefulness.
    1) Add a view for horizontal scrolling in the PDF reader.
    2) Add a night mode.
    3) Add the option "Jump to page" in the PDF reader.
    4) Add the function to put bookmarks on the pages in PDF files.
    5) Add arrows (Simbols) for the PDF marks.
    6) Add OCR for scanned PDF files to be able to highlight it.
    I think the community will appreciate that features.

  14. When using the new scan button. Have an option along for jpeg

    When using the scan button, you get the following options, whiteboard, document, business card or photo but they all save as PDF,. Could we have a jpeg option to save directly to a specific folder, multiple photos.

  15. Add support for backup of live photos/motion photos on Android and iOS.

    Life’s a blur, but it doesn’t have to be. Capture 3 seconds with every tap, and select the clearest moment.

  16. 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.

  18. Photo album layout

    Please put photo albums in order by date taken and display photos in albums by latest first. (like Google photos does). I have to scroll through hundreds of photos at the moment in my general folder to get to the latest photo.

  19. Optionally limit Clean Up Space to files older than X days

    Add a setting to restrict the Clean Up Space feature to only remove files that are older than a specified number of days. Below are some situations potentially addressed by such a feature.

    I often find that I want to share a recent photo/video that was cleaned off my device already. Especially if my photos are set to sync over wifi (without waiting for the device to charge).

    Sometimes the notification asking to clean up space pops up moments after taking a video/photo. This can be annoying at times, especially if I'm in the process of sharing it while also…

  20. 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.
