  1. Date modified

    Photos should have a sort option for date modified. It is very tedious searching through a long list of photos for one when i can just sort them into a date modified setting.

  2. Camera upload Folders

    When Camera upload detects a new folder it asks if you wish t backup or skip, if you choose to backup it would be most useful if it would backup to the folder it has detected rather than into Camera Roll, for example I ahve a folder on my phone call My Daughters, yet it backed up the photos to camera roll rather than my daughters.

  5. Fast Scroll Bar for App Files Tab

    Suggestion to implement a right-hand Fast Scroll scrollbar on the Android App in the Files view. It becomes quite unwieldy when you have dozens -- maybe a hundred -- folders and you need to swipe down-down-down many times to the correct folder as opposed to using a scroll bar (such as on the Photos view) to reach the location quickly (say, if ordered alphabetically).

  7. Allow uploads of mobile documents and sd card storage using the OneDrive app on Android

    Currently the only Device Storage upload options on the Android OneDrive app are Images, Videos, Audio, and Downloads. Provide the ability to upload from any folder. Add two additional options - "Documents" and "Device Storage" - to match the options found in "My Files".

  8. Allow download and sync whole OneDrive Document folder on android phone, like PC

    Please allow download and sync whole Document folder in OneDrive in android phone. You allow camera roll backup, so why not for Document folder backup?

  9. Select All button to delete onedrive files on your smartphone.

    Onedrive on the smartphone, you could have the option to select all the files or select everything, this option could be available within the three dot where save appears, rename, Detail, here would fit the option to select everything inside a folder where your files would be to delete.

  11. Add progress button in menu

    The progress screen is very useful to check the sync status of your files. However to access this screen, you have to navigate to photos and then click view camera upload.

    In the windows 10 mobile version, there is a progress menu item on the main menu together with files, photos, shared, etc.

    Please add this to the android version.

  13. 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.

  15. Fix freezing of Android app

    The android app is unusable. I go into my camera roll folder and it just constantly freezes. I cannot scroll, it takes forever to refresh the latest photos and eventually I give up and use the website instead. Please fix it.

  16. Videos stop when the phone auto rotates and video playing won't stop your phone from going to sleep.

    Since the recent update on my android device, my videos will play but the phone goes to sleep while the video plays. This has never happened before. Also the phone stops playing video when the phone auto rotates. These were never an issue before but now it's kinda inconvenient. Using LG stylo 2

  17. Show file modification date at a glance

    With the new update, the files don't show the last modified date as they used to, now they show the creation date.
    I love Onedrive because I use it to study directly from my tablet; when I need to change something in the text, I correct the mistake in the labtop and automatically the new file is uploaded in the tablet. I find it very useful to see at a glance, as I used to do before the new update, the last date of the new file, in order to be sure that I'm working with the more recent version.

  19. Mobile folder sync instead of backup.

    I'd would be great if local folders could be synced with OneDrive. I would specially like the option to sync pictures, and not just backup.
