  1. Multiple Personal Accounts

    Hello,

    It would be nice to have the ability to access several personal accounts, one personal and one business doesn't always meet the needs.

    Thanks!
    Keep up the great work.

  2. Fingerprint authentication

    Please make it stop! I have to sign in almost every single time I open the app. It is especially annoying with 2 factor authentication. Please let us use a PIN or even better Touch Auth for iOS (fingerprint).

  4. Empty recycle bin

    Include an option once in recycle bin to delete all. It takes too long selecting all of them. Obviously it wouldn't be the only option, you could still select some to delete. However in some cases a delete all button would be very helpful.

  5. Provide the availability to hide the message of "Got the application!" via iPad.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):iPad の "アプリを入手しました!" を非表示にする機能について

    Provide the availability to hide the message of "Got the application!" via iPad.


    ■Description(内容):
    iPad のブラウザーから Office 365 へサインインし、OneDrive for Business へアクセスすると、"アプリを入手しました!" とメッセージが表示される。
    OneDrive のアプリがインストールされている場合も表示されるため、メッセージを非表示に変更する機能を提供して欲しい。

    We are aware of the message "Got the application!" is automatically displayed when the user signs into Office 365 from the browser via iPad and access to OneDrive for Business. It also will be displayed even when OneDrive's app is installed, which makes the user confused. Thus, please provide the availability to hide this message freely.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  6. Undo

    Have an undo option. I accidentally moved a file and didn’t know which folder I had thrown it into. If there were an undo option, I could’ve used it to move the folder back. Thanks!

  7. Viewing of file names in OneDrive

    Problem:
    Not being able to see file names in full.

    There are two ways to view files in onedrive:
    1) icon view (not showing full file names or
    2) list view.
    List view will have a few columns depending on screen size or rotation (portrait / landscape).
    If in portrait it will give one column on a cell phone (not showing full file name), when turning to landscape it show two columns, still not showing full file names.

    It will be nice to have an option to choose how many columns you want to see on a screen in portrait…

  11. Editable old file name when renaming

    When renaming a file, it would be very useful to have the old file name pre-filled in the textbox.


    1. It’d be easier to make a minor change to the filename.

    2. The file name could be copied. (Useful when renaming a related file to a similar name.)

  13. Files Integration

    Please please please integrate the app with Apples new Files app. I find myself using Dropbox more and more because it works with Apples tags system and looks so much nicer. Drag and Drop on the iPad is also a dream!

  16. OneDrive as replacement for iCloud

    Hello!

    I want to replace iCloud with OneDrive. With photo upload enabled, all photos shot are uploaded to OneDrive. However, I would like it to work like iCloud, i.e. when deleting a photo locally in the Photos app it should also be deleted on OneDrive. In other words the OneDrive camera roll should be kept in sync with the local camera roll.

    Currently, with OneDrive photo upload enabled, I'm forced to delete bad photos in two places, both locally and on OneDrive. This is very inconvenient and unfortunately I need to keep using iCloud for photo management for now.

    One…

  17. Sharing Photos

    When sharing photos with someone. Have those photos show in their Photos tab.

    I shared all my photos with my wife. But she cannot see them in her photos tab within the iOS app.

  18. Remove requirement for camera upload to be on personal account

    The camera upload option is a great feature, but it's not clear why I need to use my personal account? The business pays for 1TB storage per user so I would rather have the option to use that!

    Related to the upload feature, why does the background upload need your location? Surely it could just work in the background without knowing when I move location to start it?!

  19. Select Multiple Files

    When viewing a list of file, say photos, it would be nice to be able to change your view or select multiple files at once to take singular action.

  20. Better photo sharing for immediate family members

    I'm really happy that one drive comes with lots of storage for my photos. However, if there was a way that you would back up the high resolution photos on iOS (even though I have the setting enabled that should optimise my local storage with iCloud) that would be amazing. At the same time my wife and I just had a son and I would love to be able to have a camera option within one drive that would let me take photos directly from a shared album so I skip the step of choosing to share etc in the…
