  1. 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. 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.

  7. Making a multi select button for files, instead of having to individually select them

    Literally cut and dry. There should be a button that you can press to select all the files in a folder, instead of having to select one at a time.

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  19. 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…

  20. Edit photo on OneDrive

    from camera roll, or from picture folder, after opening a photo, an important function was to be able to edit the photo: crop, adjust, rotate etc to correct the composition and make the photo look right.

    this edit function is so important, please please add to the next update.

    right now, I have to take the photo out to phone's gallery, then using the gallery photo edit function to edit it, then upload it back to OneDrive, a very tedious process.
