  3. Enable pinning folders

    I use onedrive for cloud storage on my android. I would like to be able to pin specific folders, especially the camera roll, instead of having to repeatedly navigate through three or for extra folders.

  6. Make the Android app faster!

    OneDrive is awesome but slow. Every single step takes a few seconds to load. Make it responsive!

  7. Scan offline

    Unlike in Office Lens, there is no way to scan using the Scan feature while offline. Office Lens saves photos in cache and lets us upload them later when we're connected. Here we must upload it right after taking the photo to be able to scan another.

  8. Jump to a date few years ago...

    Onedrive app: possibility to jump to exact day few years ago, instead of scrolling down to find those photos. My finger is almost killed now!

  9. Searching by date

    Option for search for date is necessary. I am sick of scrolling for hours or having to drag out the laptop to find a picture from a year ago

  10. 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.

  11. Folder mapping from folder photos on phone to folders on onedrive

    should be able to select the folder in one drive corresponding to the local photos folder on phone. Makes life easier by having structured pics. It's a mess as all go in same folder.

  12. 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.

  13. add photo captions to Android app

    Captions of photos I have typed online don't show up anywhere when viewing photos through the Android app. Also, one cannot add/change caption from Android app.

  15. Shut off camera shutter sound while scanning

    Dear Madam or Sir, I am using the OneDrive app on my Xiaomi 9 SE (Android 9) Smarthpone and would like to switch off the camera shutter sound during the scan process. It is an anoying feature, especially if you like to scan documents in the quiet library. So far I tried to switch off the phone sounds, but apparently the OneDrive app still is able to produce the camera shutter sound. For future updates: an option to switch off the sound within the app would be very helpfull. Your help is very much appreciated.

  16. Do not create a folder called "Camera Roll" when automatically uploading photos.

    OneDrive automatically creates a folder called "Camera Roll" when it uploads photos from my android phone. I wish it didn't do that. I would like to choose which OneDrive folder the photos are uploaded to.

  17. camera upload is consuming all of my wifi bandwidth so I had to turn off the upload. it would be great if I could set a bandwidth rate limit

    Android app - please allow upload rate limit so that I can use my wifi for other things while the files are uploading

  18. More options for music playback on the OneDrive mobile app

    Playing music on the app is very poor. There is no real music player and it does not display file tags or cover art. Please improve music playback on the OneDrive app!

  19. Sort file and folders by date modified.

    Add sort files and folders by date modified. Most others have that option as the default. So frustrating to have to list from a to z because sorting by newest is almost worthless.

  20. Clear up notifications page

    Create a button to clear the notifications page on the onedrive app.

    In the beggining of the notifications it automatically created albuns and the annoying notifications remain and cant be deleted. Need a button that enables it to be deleted. Even better if you van choose what to delete.
