  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • Sync the albums folders.

          So I spend hours sorting my photos on my phone into folders, so I can actually find then when I want and don't have to scroll through 1000 photos under camera roll. Then it uploads to OneDrive and as far as I can tell is uploading all photos, but they are all under camera roll again and I have to spend several more hours creating and sorting. Can't you just take the whole album I already have created so they are already sorted?

          • choose which folders to upload to onedrive

            Would like to be able to add whole folders from mobile devices. Eg Twitter, Facebook and downloads which will then automatically update with new files.

                  Search the folder that you are in in One Drive app. The search feature searches all of One Drive when I want to search a folder such as "Music".

                  • 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.

                    • Camera upload for OneDrive business

                      It is unacceptable that you have less features in a paid service than the free. In addition, the camera upload is a very good standard feature that are already available for all competitors even in Business accounts.I work in a very large chemistry company , Employees can not automatically upload photo documentation of production equipment from a mobile device to onedrive. Should I tell the colleagues they have to create a private account ????

                      • 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 ?

                          • 'On this day' view and notification on Android

                            One of my favorite features on an OneDrive competitor product was that It used to send me a 'on this day' notification every morning, showing photographs of that day from previous years. It used to be a great way to start the morning. I am badly missing this feature.

                            • Add the option to change file display settings - show date modified

                              The date listed for displaying files on Android is date created. This works for photos, but is unhelpful for files that are continually being updated. I suggest adding the option to change the date displayed to date modified rather than date created.

                              • Enable posting photos directly to the Instagram from the OneDrive for Business Apps via Android devices.

                                I am using the OneDrive for Business App by Android devices, and I have recognized that it cannot be posted the photo which has uploaded on OneDrive for Business to the Instagram directly. However, It is possible if the Apps for iOS devices. Therefore, I hope the feature of apps will be improved enables posting the photo directly via Android devices as well.

                                • Differentiate the additional folders in camera upload

                                  It's great to include those additional folders with camera upload, but sometimes apps label those folders with the same name and it's hard to tell which folder is for what app. Either having a way to preview what's in each folder or having the full folder location added to the list would be fabulous.

                                    • 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.
