  1. 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!

  3. 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.

  5. Microsoft DELETED the suggestion for returning to the previous Onedrive PDF annotation

    The post of over 1000 votes requesting that onedrive restore its original editing capabilities (notes, highlighter, pen layout, blue side toolbar) was deleted by Microsoft.

    There was a claim that the 'annotation experience' would be improved, but this never occurred.

    The app is still much worse than it was (went from a beautifully made app, to highly tedious to annotate PDFs).

    In OneDrive app for iOS, we only can clear the cache for accounts, and it is not possible to manually clear the cache created when viewing and editing files.
    Unused files consume the storage space in devices, therefore, please add ability to clear cache of files by manual.

  7. Document editing

    Editing documents with apple pen with a recent update does not include the option of inserting arrows, text boxes, shapes. This was very useful, i do not understand why they would take it out of the app.

  11. Allow "." (dot/point) in notebook names like "1.1 page", "1.3 page"

    In iOS OneDrive App it is not possible to use correctly "." (dot/point) in OneNote notebook names like
    "1.1 page"
    "1.3 page"

    You can create such a notebook name, but it is displayes as "1"
    (= everythink after the first dot is cutted)

    Seems to be a bug since such notebook names are **allowed** and correclty displayed in
    1) Win10: OneNote 2016: yes
    2) Win10: App.OneNote: yes
    3) Win10: OneDrive in WindowsExplorer: yes
    4) Office 365 (Online) Sharepoint (Teamwebsite): yes

    # Summary
    So when using two notebook names like "1.1 Private" and "1.2 Work", then in iOS.OneDrive you see it…

  14. PDF annotation tool - NOT SOLVED

    Several months ago Microsoft changed the wonderful PDF annotation tool on Onedrive for iOS, to a new version that works very bad. A large group of people from industry and academy who use the iPAD with Onedrive got justifiably furious. At the following months Microsoft provided us with some minor fixes, and labeled this issue as "FIXED". No Microsoft, the issue is far from being fixed!

    Among the things that are still not fixed:
    -Eraser is too crude, it deletes too big of an area and not offering precise work as the previous tool offered. Moreover there is no outline…

  16. stuck at “setting things up” how could you be so stupid and irresponsible

    before the onedrive APP automatically upload the camera
    the onedrive APP will stupidly make clear the information of all the files in the whole onedrive(not only the files in the camera folder),and it will write the information in a database in the onedrive APP
    I have more than 100GB files in the onedrive.
    The consequence is the iOS onedrive APP cannot make clear the information of all the files. So it stuck at "Setting things up", and it has written more than 3GB date to the database aforementioned.
    and if you use an empty onedrive, you will find it can…

  20. OneDrive on ISO - Annotating PDFs has changed...and now mark-ups look bad

    OneDrive has been my goto app for pdf annotations on the iPad. After the last update, though, the annotations menu has completely changed and making mark-ups is tricky (and ugly) - it's like OneDrive is not longer compatible with apple pencil. This diminishes the usability of the app by a lot!
