  1. One way folder sync feature

    Folder A is synced using my desktop one drive client and one drive cloud. The feature that i am suggesting is whatever i copy to my desktop folder A gets uploaded to one drive cloud folder A and then automatically gets deleted from desktop folder A only.

    I think this feature will help in managing the desktop hdd space more efficiently.

  3. Edit document names

    Edit the document name directly when we upload it from another app to Onedrive instead of uploading, then go to the document, select document, edit name.

    Same when we scan a file : edit the name before we upload it

  5. Background Refresh Without Location

    Other photo apps like Google Photos have background refresh without requiring location services. I do not want to have location on all the time. Please allow background refresh independent of location. This is the weakest feature of this app.

  6. Text editing

    Pl include text file editing/creating option which makes our life easy by instantly updating/editing/making notes of our simple .txt files rather than just viewing those files and editing on our PCs/laptop

  8. Add an option to iOS app photo upload to backup only new photos (taken after enabling this feature)

    I already have a few thousand photos on my iPhone. They are already backed up by another app. So I do not want to replicate them in OneDrive. However, I would like to switch to OneDrive for future photo backup without impacting what's already on my phone. Today, I cannot do this. So I am unwilling to switch over to OneDrive for photo backup.

    OneDrive アプリのプレビューモードで ANSI が読み込めるよう機能の追加を要望いたします。

    I am aware of that the text file created with the character code ANSI is garbled when previewing it on OneDrive Apps for iOS. Although there are some workarounds such as creating text file with the character code UTF8 or opening the text file a notepad, the default character code of Windows notepad is set as ANSI, so it might…

  10. Enable to change the display size of images freely in OneDrive App for iOS devices.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名): iOS 端末の OneDrive アプリの画像表示について

    Enable to change the display size of images freely in OneDrive App for iOS devices.


    ■Description(内容): iOS 端末の OneDrive アプリにて 画像の表示が小さく多くのファイルが表示されるようになったが、小さすぎて解り難いため、以前のように大きい画像表示ででいくつかのファイルを確認できるように選択する機能を搭載してほしい。

    Currently, the display size of images in OneDrive App for iOS devices had changed into smaller size which shows many small images on the display, however, it is too small to see. In the display as before, a small number of images were displayed with a larger size.
    Therefore, I hope the feature will be implemented to change the display size of images freely.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  11. Allow Photos view to be restricted to certain folders

    Right now when you click the Photos tab/section in OneDrive for iOS it shows image files from all over my OneDrive storage. I would like the ability to limit the Photos tab to only show photos from (for example) my camera roll folder.

    I have auto upload set for iOS Photos so my OneDrive space becomes my defacto camera roll and long term history. It would be nice to get the Photos tab to act like this.

  12. Photo Tab Jump Lists

    Please enable jump lists for dates similar to Photos app In windows 10. This is a much more efficient way to navigate, and will bring a consistent experience to the app

  13. Ability to use HTML text files

    Hello Microsoft.

    It would be a nice feature if OneDrive could use HTML text files in a way where the links and fonts prescribed inside the document actually work.

    I create HTML files as a way to organize lyrics to all of my music without having to search the web every time. The only way I can view the file via iOS is by saving the HTML files to Apple's Notes app. It would be far more convenient to view it directly from the OneDrive app like I do all of my other documents.

    Sincerely,

    A dedicated consumer

  15. 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.

  19. 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…

  20. 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.
