  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. Add the native fingerprint API available in Android marshmallow!

    Add the new APIs into the app! Or much more convenient to unlock it that way

  10. 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!

  11. Improve photo gallery in Android

    If your camera roll folder is very large (thousands of pictures) navigating it is nearly impossible. Improving the search and filtering capabilities would make the app infinitely better. For example, being able to navigate to a specific month (like Windows phone app does) or search for some other metadata than tags (maybe location if avaliable).

    Thanks!

  16. 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 ????

  17. 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.
