  1. 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!!!

  2. 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.

  3. Two finger scrolling while using editing tools

    It would be nice to have two finger scrolling while editing a document. I use the highlighting tool often and I would like to be able to leave the highlighting function on while I also scroll through a document. Currently I have to deselect the tool and scroll then reselect when I need it again.

  4. Need ability to rename file or create folder in OneDrive upload extension

    When I upload a file (for example from an email attachment) through the OneDrive upload extension to a OneDrive folder and the file name already exists, the extension returns an error, but it does not give the option to change the file name. This is needed urgently.

    In addition, it would be good if a user can create a folder from within the upload extension.

    Finally, suppose you try to save an email as PDF the default file name is the email subject, which often has a colon (:) in the name (because of reply or forward). Since you cannot…

  5. Hard to see search button

    On file screen, the magnifying glass search button is VERY difficult to see. The color blends in to much with title bar background color on file list page on mobile version for iphone.

  6. Icon & Title Bar Colours

    Hi. The folder icons in black are somewhat uninspiring and dull. They don’t pop! Any others colour would be brighter and better!
    Having said that, the title bar in blue highlight the notch on the iPhone X. If the title bar was black the notch would disappear!
    It’s a great app though, well done and my compliments to the team.

    I would really greatly appreciate an update to the OneDrive app for iOS that adds full intergration to the files app, similar to how Google Drive and Dropbox do it. As well, please add support for drag and drop across the whole office suite, including word, PowerPoint, etc. This update will greatly improve mine and others’ workflow. Please let me know

  12. Printing

    Not sure why I can’t print a pdf file from OneDrive app on my iPad or send it to another app where I can print. Pretty big oversight, in my opinion.

  13. File upload size

    Please add an option to not upload certain file size or file type. And maybe an option for file upload priority.

  14. Rotating screen upon moving items

    Presently, to choose the destination folder to move an item, you get to see the folders only in portrait view. Even if you have your iPad in the landscape position, the "move item" screen does not rotate accordingly.
    This could be improved.

  15. how about auto-detecting photo updates?

    when I update a photo in my device, I hope OneDrive can automatically sync the update photo into cloud and also keep the original picture. iphone user.

  16. File aliases?

    If you don't already have them, the possibility of an alias/shortcut to a file or folder (better) at the top level of the directory structure would be very handy.
    E.g. I have lecture powerpoints that are buried deep in the OneDrive/teaching/courses/ph142f17/lectures folder so IO need to click through them all every time I want to access them.

  17. Recently used folders

    Suggestion:
    I upload voice memos to the same folder in OneDrive. It would be useful if OneDrive remembers the (most recent) folder I used with each particular app (Voice Memos in this case)

    Thanks

  18. Constructive criticism

    Don't force the folders on people like documents and email attachments. Let them organize their own stuff. Also, I could figure out how to delete things out of the recycling bin completely... maybe press and hold yes recycling bin to do it, if you want to improve it.

    Thanks!

  20. Searching files smartly

    When you search for a specific file, it sometimes shows several results and you can look at the items. However, it happens sometimes that you don't know which one is the relevant file that you are looking for. So you try opening one, and close it and go back, if that file doesn't have the data you are looking for. And then, when you go back, the search query results are gone. You then have to make the search query again.

    You should save the search results and one should be able to get back to the search list.
