  1. Separate folders for each device backing up to the camera roll

    If you have multiple devices that would take advantage of the camera roll there should be an option to put them in separate folders. IE if you have an android phone, ipad, etc each device should be given the opportunity to use a subfolder (Camera roll\ipad and Camera roll\android)

    We’re interested in improving the experience for users of camera upload to OneDrive. Looking at better ways to organize and structure the files is an important aspect. No other updates right now.

    This is something we’re planning to add to the app. No dates to share yet.

  3. Exclude Folders from All Photos View

    Gents, I believe you have a major problem in the concept of your Photos tab in the OneDrive iOS app. All the photos I have uploaded to my OneDrive into separate and organized folders (over 80gb) are showing on the photos tab. This is insane. It gets extremely slow and very messy. Just as all your competitors do, we should see there only the Camera Roll pictures that are uploaded to OneDrive, and not everything! I have activated the automatic backup of my iPhone photos to OneDrive and guess what? All the photos that are being uploaded are mixed in…

    We’ve heard the feedback and are going to have the option to control what content shows up in the photos tab in the mobile app. We allow you to change this setting on OneDrive.com today.

  4. Copy files on mobile (Onedrive for iOS)

    Please add the option to copy (not just move) files or folders to the onedrive App for iOS.
    Would be great and should not be a big deal to implement.

    Thanks!
    Regards,

  5. Multiple onedrive personal accounts

    You allow multiple onedrive business accounts, but not multiple personal accounts in the iOS app. Really?? We can have multiple personal emails in the outlook app. Why would you force us to logout and log back in just because it is a personal account in the onedrive app? Please allow multiple personal accounts on the onedrive app.

  6. If picture is backed up and older than a week, delete it from IOS camera roll

    To save space is the purpose of backups, so if a photo is backed up and older than X, delete it from camera roll

  7. Sort photos by date taken not date created in OneDrive

    When sorting photos by date, the app sorts by date file was created in OneDrive as opposed to the date when the photo was taken.

    When looking Photos menu, it list files by upload date or date created in OneDrive, from the user perspective, the date uploaded to OneDrive it's absolutely irrelevant.

    This has been around since before 2015, isn't it time to change how Photos menu lists the content or at least give user the option to choose?

    This bug defeats completely the Photo menu purpose, the one place to see all your mixed by date pics!

  8. Allow HEIC to JPG conversion when uploading

    I used to upload photos from my personal iPhone to OneDrive so I could open them on my work computer running Windows 8.1. With the update allowing HEIC I can no longer open them. It seems my options are to open the app to take pictures, allow all of my personal photos to be uploaded, access pictures only through the website, use a 3rd party converter, or find a new app to get my pictures on my computer. It would be nice if there was a setting to return the app to the old functionality.

  9. Adding the bookmark function in PDF

    Hi! I'm used to read books (.pdf) through the OneDrive app. Although the commenting and highlighting functions are already great, I'd like to know if there could be some bookmarking function for some particular pages, so that I can go back to the page more easily. Thanks!

  12. Recycle Bin

    I think it would be useful to have a 'Delete all' and a 'Recover all' option in the recycle bin section.

  13. Pause upload

    Put some sort of feature that pauses a upload ( like taping the uploaded or a dedicated pause button ) some video files are to large to sit and wait for the upload to finish and some people don't have the best internet connection. So pause feature would be much appreciated.

  15. Folders download

    Suppose I have many folders and each folders has sub folders then each folders has more than 10 to 50 files, in current situation I have to click each file inside sub folder to download it , what I suggest is once I click in main folder either to download it automatically or give option as button to say "do you want to download the folders with files " if say yes then downloaded it if not then just download sub folders as you do now
    Click then click then click to reach files or my solution to pop message…

  17. PDF Tool

    The PDF Tools (the mark up tool, bookmark and annotation tabs) worked extremely well before the latest update. The upgrade has removed a lot of the functionality that existed - a moveable tool bar, easy to find pages that were either bookmarked or annotated, the ability to draw straight lines with ease, etc.

    The current pdf viewer and tools seem to be retrograde and make the process of working on pdfs MUCH slower.

  18. Scan

    Scan Resolution

    I would be helpful to be able to SCAN and SAVE to pdf at low or high resolution to help limit size of file but also based on the appropriate need i.e. a lunch receipt for expense vs a detailed invoice for accounting.

  19. Offline Work

    In addition to being able to view files offline in the OneDrive App, editing files while offline would make excellent use of the offline implementation and increase overall productivity.

  20. Swiping gestures

    To delete files my first attempt was to try swiping gestures on the files/folders because that is how the native iOS apps work. I figured it out eventually that I needed to hold down a file to be able to multi select and delete.

    It's true with swiping you can't multi select, but maybe we can have both
