  1. 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 ?

  2. 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.

  3. Search folder in One Drive app

    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".

  4. 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 ????

  5. download folder

    I haven't been able to download a folder. I didn't find where it is on my device - quickpik at least didnt find -when I make it available offline, so I had to select all files in a folder to really download them.

  6. 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.

  8. Select multiple photos drags to Album menu

    When selecting multiple photos in menu Photos, if user drags to left, app understands that you want to move to Albums menu.

    Is there a way to once you start selecting multiple photos it locks to the tab All?

    This seems to be by design, but could and should be improved. Thanks.

  10. 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.

    BR

  11. Improve the PDF reader

    Hey there.
    Recently I was using the OneDrive application in android, I found some features that would improve the application and of course its usefulness.
    1) Add a view for horizontal scrolling in the PDF reader.
    2) Add a night mode.
    3) Add the option "Jump to page" in the PDF reader.
    4) Add the function to put bookmarks on the pages in PDF files.
    5) Add arrows (Simbols) for the PDF marks.
    6) Add OCR for scanned PDF files to be able to highlight it.
    I think the community will appreciate that features.

  12. 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!

  13. Make onedrive not crashing when chrome casting photos and videos.

    After one photo or video the onedrive app crashes on android when chromecasting.

    It has been a bug for a long time and it should be fixed.

  14. More options for music playback on the OneDrive mobile app

    Playing music on the app is very poor. There is no real music player and it does not display file tags or cover art. Please improve music playback on the OneDrive app!

  15. Change sync folder photos

    I'd like to be able to select which OneDrive folder my photos sync to. Currently there is a default folder called Camera Roll that has thousands of photos. I would like to be able to start fresh in a new folder so I don't have to scroll through so many photos when I view the folder contents. Since I can't change which folders my phone syncs to, I have to move photos from the original folder to a new folder and that's very time consuming.

  17. Show object Modification Date in File Lists

    When looking at details of files of objects using an Android device, as well as showing Creation Date for an object, also show Modification Date. This would then also allow Sorting of Objects on Modification Date which would greatly assist finding objects.

  20. 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.
