  2. 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.

  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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  8. An option for undoing automatic enhance whiteboard

    Automatic whiteboard enhancement algorithms are weak and make mistakes most of times
    I think we need an option for turning off or undo enhancement.
    I've lost lots of my important photos because of this mistake

  9. Regarding offline access behavior for files being uploaded to OneDrive for Business

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Business にアップロードしているファイルのオフライン アクセスの動作について
    Regarding offline access behavior for files being uploaded to OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):
    現時点での、Android 版 アプリにおいて、OneDrive for Business 内のアイテムにオンライン環境で一度でもアクセスを行った場合、アイテムへのアクセス情報がキャッシュされ、[オフラインで保持] の機能を利用しなくても、オフラインの状態で当該アイテムの閲覧が可能な動作である。
    上記でキャッシュされた情報は、OneDrive のキャッシュクリアや、端末の再起動では解消できず、アプリのサインアウトとサインインを行わない限り保持されてしまう状況のため、OneDrive for Business の標準機能として、オンライン環境でアクセスしたファイルに関するキャッシュが保存されないよう制御するための機能の実装を要望します。

    Currently, on the Android version of the app, if an item in OneDrive for Business is accessed online even once, the access information for the item is cached, and that item can be read offline without using the “make available offline” function.
    The aforementioned cached information cannot be deleted by restarting the device or clearing the OneDrive cache, but only by signing out and signing back…

  10. 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…

  11. 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. 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.

  14. Make the Android app faster!

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

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. create a OneDrive folder in android photo gallery app.

    When downloading a photo or video from OneDrive to an Android phone, one needs to places the files in DCIM-->camera to be able to view them in the native gallery app.

    Could it be possible to have a folder called OneDrive automatically created and where all downloaded media would be found ?

    WeChat and Whatsapp are doing it, so it's possible... right ?

  20. 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!
