  1. Search function

    You should allow the search function to be performed only in a specific library. In general, the search function in the app is very basic and can be further improved.

  3. OneDrive Cast onto other Microsoft Devices

    Please provide us an ability cast photos or videos on OneDrive from an iphone. I have allready accepted my fate on ios with the inability to miracast local content. Instead, please provide the ability to cast my content from OneDrive to a miracast enabled device or another ms device like the Xbox.

  4. Allow opening fillable PDFs in another app. The function is currently disabled

    Allow PDFs to be opened in other apps as form fillable. Currently PDFs opened in other apps from OneDrive do not allow opening as a fillable pdf

  5. iOS: multiple documents, better rendering, improved file picker

    If you are using OneDrive as the main file viewer, it needs improvements.


    1. View multiple document side by side (see Safari Side by Side view)

    2. Open documents in tabs, so you can easily switch between documents (see iOS GoodReader app)

    3. Better rendering of complex Word documents. If I now view a Word document in OneDrive, it does not show tracked changes. Consider rendering it as a PDF which loads faster (see Box app)

    4. Recent Docs should also sort by recently viewed, instead of only recently created

    5. Show full file names and details in single column instead of abbreviating file names…

  6. Merging PDF

    When I want to scan copies of a contract or anything, it will usually have multiple pages, and maybe this is a feature and I can't find it, but you should be able to merge the PDF into 1.

  7. Email attachments

    I find the ability to open a saved outlook email a fantastic benefit of filing emails in one drive. It would be even better if an attachment Worthing the email was accessible as well.

  9. Organization

    You should suggest removal of photos once they have been added to an album so they don't get added twice. Make the initial location of photos basically, a temporary location until it has been organized.

  10. Save as button

    PDF reader should have a save as button to avoid having to overwrite files that should be read only.

  11. Remove location

    Please remove the need of use of location for auto upload. I want just to auto upload any photos or videoa in background but without using my location. I do not see the point of it plus it uses more battery. Thanks

  12. Open multiple pdf at the same time?

    Dear sir/madam,

    Greetings, nowadays we usually work by opening multiple PDFs and making comparisons between them

    It would be awesome if future update can include the ability to open multiple PDFs within the app (e.g. for side to side view)

    Thankyou very much!

  14. Uploaded file names

    If possible, please allow the app to upload photos with same photo file name from phone's photos app. In few cases like when i remove the app and reinstall because other things, same files are getting uploaded with different name. This can be fixed if photos or videos are uploaded into OneDrive with same file name as in the photos app of phone. Please do it or give us the option in settings.

    Thanks for listening and for the great app

  15. PDF of Annotations

    Hi,
    You are doing great work on this app. I would really like to be able to export only my annotations, and send them by email, or save them as a pdf. The app seems to allow me to print them, but then I would have to type them all again for my research.
    An app that does this well is tinyPDF, but it doesn't maintain a sync with the cloud.
    Thanks
    Anthony

  16. Add text/code editing

    As you do in the browser version of onedrive could you also allow users to edit or at least view code or text files within the onedrive app?

  17. ePub file handling

    Hello,

    It's neat that I don't need iTunes to put ePub files in my iOS devices now, thanks to onedrive. However, I would like to be able to send multiple books to iBooks. Maybe give that a shot.

  18. Adding tool for "Undo" to be used for deleted files

    Adding a tool "Undo" to be used for deleted files and folders, sometimes we are deleting files accidentally, adding a fixed bottom or tool with long lasting to undo is a good thing.

  19. Time stamp, image resolution control, allow edit while in upload queue

    I would suggest to add time stamp with seconds, otherwise one has to wait 1 minute before next scan, make a fare selection of resolution so that file size can be reduced before upload. give a option to edit the file while they are in upload queue.. now there is only option remains to delete that and scan again with other name... which was the reason when 2 scans taken in 1 minute time!!!

  20. View and edit file metadata

    Please add the ability to view and edit file metadata. Specifically would like to be able to add notes to certain files. Like when I upload a receipt I would like to be able to add a note with names of who went to lunch with me, etc. I believe this is a available in windows filesystem properties.
