  1. TURN OFF WHITEBOARD ENHANCEMENT

    I took an image of 2 blocks in a diagram, with an arrow between them. It saved an image of an arrow pointing to a block. That is not what I wanted.

    I put the title in all-caps because I am very angry.

  2. Option to "keep both files or overwrite old file" while uploading file with the same name as a existing file on Android

    Could you implement the "keep both files or overwrite old file"- option on the OneDrive App for Android?? when i upload a file on my computer and a file with the same name does exist already on OneDrive, i get a warning that bthe file could noz be uploaded cause it does exist already and i can chose to keep both or overwrite the existing one.
    This option is missing on the Android App. One Drive on Android will automaticly rename the new file (add a (1) ) and upload it and i have to delet the older version manualy…

    the thumbnails in the android app for pictures are too big. it would be better if you can change the size or the count per row. instead of 2 big pictures 4 small pictures.

  5. "Sync now" button

    I'm a heavy OneDrive user and I use it to keep my Android camera photos updated. My main problem doing this is that the OneDrive app has only 2 options for syncing pictures - you can either tell it to sync every time there's a new picture, or only when the phone is charging.

    While I like the "upload only when charging" option sometimes I like to take a quick picture and sync the phone - which sucks because then I have to go and turn off the "upload only when charging" option. Then after I'm done I have to…

  7. Download


    1. Add "select all" box. I don't have to tic 50 times for 50 items!


    2. Allow folder download instead of just fils. I need to download the whole folder


    3. Allow download to SD card, and allow creating new folder.


    Honestly, the download function is so poor and needs serious attention and improvements

  8. Create structured folders for mobile additional uploaded folders like whatsapp

    From version 3.9 its possible to sync additional folders to OneDrive. However I dont want my whatsapp pictures, my screenshots etc. to be in the same folder as my camera pictures (Camera Roll). It would be great to have folders structure. In Copy.com RIP you had a main upload folder and inside folder per device with the device camera, folders for whatsapp videos, whatsapp pictures etc...

  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.

  10. I want you to make it possible to edit text files on OneDrive for Business on mobile devices

    Since text (.txt) files are basic files for entering and saving letters, I would like you to create an option that allows the editing of text files saved on OneDrive for Business on mobile devices. It is very inconvenient to have to change text files into Word documents every time you want to edit them. So, wouldn`t you please create a function that allows to directly edit text files in the OneDrive app or add a function to the Word for mobile app that makes it possible to open and edit text files on mobile devices? Google is already offering…

  16. make folders available offline on Android

    When I saw that the feature for offline access was marked as "done", I was thrilled, but rapidly disappointed when I realized it's been implemented for individual files only. What if we want to keep an entire folder in sync? Isn't that the purpose of sync cloud storage?

  18. Quickly navigate to specific dates of photos

    On the Windows photos app, you are able to quickly navigate to specific time periods. This would be a great feature to incorporate into the photos section of the OneDrive app!

  20. Shortcut to folders in Android Version

    Enable the possibility to add a shortcut folder in the home screen, or any screen, for folders in OneDrive. It will be amazing to access the files directly without opening the app and searching for the folder you want. It will be like our desktop.
