  2. Uploading

    Takes a really long time to upload videos... Maybe when uploading camera roll go video by video versus trying to upload 5 at a time. Thanks!

  6. Progress Bar to show the status

    It is very hard to know if a particular request has been received in the app. If there was a way to navigate to the progress bar to show the various activities that are taking place within the app such as uploads, copying from various shared folders, downloads, etc I think it would be useful. The android version has something similar but that is something you have to invoke from the notifications area. A way to navigate to a progress bar within the app would be useful. Something similar to what we have with the current camera upload progress bar.

  7. Picture download

    Could you add like downloading multiple pictures at a time. Because I searched everywhere I couldn't download pictures all together but could download one by one. And I don't know maybe it's because all my pictures are high quality so it more than 5mb and that's the reason. Please find a way to download totally.

  8. Sort by file type

    Like the title suggests, add the ability to sort by file type. This is a basic sorting feature. Neither the iOS app or the website has this ability which is utterly baffling to this user.

  9. Download notification

    Drop box does it, would like to see numbers on the app when closed that count down when photos are uploaded so I know when I can delete them from my photo album. Currently I have to keep logging back in and out to see if one drove has finished downloading. On Dropbox, I go about my business and when the badge app icon counts down and hits zero I know all of my photos are done downloading. Thanks!

  11. Office Lens: Add tags when uploading to OneDrive

    Make it possible to add tags to documents scanned in Office Lens before they are uploaded to One Drive.
    At present you first upload the document to One Drive. Then you have to open One Drive and add tags. Not intuitive, slow and requires a lot of clicks.

  13. Upload in Background

    You've made the "upload in background" feature useless for a lot of devices by having it triggered by changes in location. Have you considered that some devices might not change location? A lot of people have tablets that don't leave the house.

    OneDrive Photo upload is unreliable on my iPad for this reason. All the photos from my android devices are instantly accessible in OneDrive. Make the IOS version work properly like the Android version

  14. Edited photos should be backed up

    Currently edited photos are not backed up AT ALL.
    Who needs backup solution that backs up only 1st version of the file?
    May be somebody will also find configuration option to replace or keep original useful. I would prefer all revisions that I made to be backed up by default.

  16. Upload speed preview and limit.

    In iOS OneDrive app, It will be very helpful to know/preview the uploading speed for the backup files, also to have the options for upload one file at the time or multiple files, because sometimes I feel like it takes forever even having a super fast internet connection.

    I don't know if it is because there's a limit for the upload speed or because other reason, but it takes forever to backup videos and photos, and it doesn't matter if "background uploading" is enabled and app running in the background, after a couple of hours, the background "service" stop working…

  17. Double page display in PDF view

    Hey guys, I love the PDF reader in OneDrive. What would really improve an already excellent feature set would be the option to show two pages side to side when in landscape view

  18. Display File List In One or Two Columns

    I would like to have the ability to show the list of files in only one or two columns. Currently in the three column format files with longer names are indecipherable especially if many of them begin with the same prefix and end in the same suffix.

    It would be ideal to be able to be able to see the files listed and to switch between a tiled view, three columned view, two columns or single column.

    Thanks for a great app though.

  19. Location services

    There is no conceivable reason why auto photo upload needs location services.

    It's astounding how much better the Dropbox app is than one drive, given the resources of both companies.

    Really trying to like your cloud services but I feel penalized for using them.

  20. Allow editing option

    When I invite people to share a file the default option is 'allow editing'. This seems to be the wrong default to me, surely I should have to make a positive decision to allow editing. There doesn't seem to be a way to change this default in settings.
