  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).

  6. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  13. 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!

  14. Fingerprint Requirement Timeout (iOS/iPhone/Android)

    Allow a user-selectable timeout option to delay having to re-press my fingerprint to access the OneDrive app. For instance, when loading the app and viewing a document I use my fingerprint to log in to OneDrive. Great. But if I switch apps for any reason and come back to OneDrive, even immediately, I have to use my fingerprint again. Perhaps a variable setting of 30s, 1min, 2mins, 5mins, 10mins, 30mins, etc where within that time period I wouldn't have to use my fingerprint. That'd be GREAAT!

    以前まで、iPad 用 Office アプリでは閲覧権限のファイルに対して描画を行い、変更内容を保存する時に新しくファイルを作ることで保存できたが、現在は閲覧権限の Office ファイルに対しては描画ができず、ファイルを複製してから描画を行う必要があり不便に感じているため、戻す機能を提供して欲しい。
    また、モバイル用アプリでは、いつ仕様変更が行われたのかなどの公開情報が乏しく、ロードマップ等に詳細を公開して欲しい。

    Previously in Office app for iPad, it was possible to draw a file with view permission and to save the file as a new one. However, currently users are not allowed to draw the view permission file directly. To do so, we must copy the file first and then make drawing to it.
    For improvement of usability, roll back the previous way and let users to draw the file and then make a copy file.

  16. Long press an item to make all those visible wobble - like apps in iOS: you then move them to other folders, or a bin - which pops up.

    A trash can should appear either at the top or the bottom of the screen, which you can drag items into if you want to delete them.

  17. copy from folders to shared folders

    in the ios app one drive you can move files from your drive to the shared folders.
    It would be very helpful if you could copy the files from the own folder to the shared folders. so one copy remains in the own folder.

  19. Enable form box editing in PDFs again please

    Since around 1 week I cannot edit a PDF that has forms included (blue boxes for text input, a signature field also). Before it was like this: When opening the PDF within onedrive, the pdf opened up with the forms appearing in transparent blue boxes, also the signature field appeard. Upon clicking a form box one could type the text inside. When clicking the signature box it was possible to sign the PDF.
    Since 1 week when opening the PDF, no more blue form boxes appear, as if it was disabled. I couldn't find any settings to enable the form…
