  2. Pause/Cancel options while uploading videos.

    * Need options to pause or cancel progress of large video files.
    * Option to upload files one by one along with the current multiple file uploads at a time. So user has an to choose which file to upload first.

  3. Cannot change file extension

    Hello,

    Onedrive does not allow the change of the core file extensions like Dropbox.

    e.g. Change Test.xlsx to Text.txt

  4. 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

  5. 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!

  7. 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.

  9. Ink

    The Apple Pencil ink is too thick on the PDF editor. Please make smoother cleaner ink for Apple Pencil. Microsoft Word, Onenote etc. has much finer smoother ink please make adjustments!

  12. Offline Files

    It would be awesome to be able to store an entire file (and all it's contents) on a device for offline access, and that any changes made would be automatically synced. This would allow users instant access with faster loading, even if internet is not available.

  13. PDF Viewer Enhancement - Ability to Snip an Area

    The PDF viewer built into OneDrive on iOS is already pretty handy but one feature that would help especially when working with those pesky PDF files that contain images is a feature similar to Windows Snipping Tool.

    I utilize oneNote as well and appreciate the ability to snip a part out of a PDF and add it to my notebook. Currently I have to mark the PDF then open it on my PC to do this same task.

  14. Pause a file that uploads

    You should give us the option to pause an upload so that we can choose which files are more important and should be uploaded first. I'm talking about the camera uploading where Onedrive just finds new files and uploads them in order. For example now my Onedrive tries to upload 5 videos and it takes about a day to do it whereas it could have uploaded all the photos first which are more important to me.

  15. Drop shadow size

    The drop shadow effect used is too big, it would look a lot more clean if you used a smaller one.

  16. Zoom In Window For Annotating

    Hi,

    Could we get a zooming in window option for annotating? If you try writing in directly it can look bad but when there is a zoom in window option it allows for more precise writing and you don't have to zoom in the entire page. You can take a look at the app called GoodNotes which implements this idea perfectly, but has horrible folder organization. Also, a different style of writing would be good as well. The current style looks too much like I'm using an old fashioned pen as it varies in thickness when writing. Can we just…

  18. Treat shared folders just like regular folders on Mobile

    In the iOS mobile app, currently shared folder live under a different tab at the bottom of the app. It's not clear why they are treaded differently. One issue this causes, is that when I create a new PDF from a different app and try to save to my OneDrive, I can only see my folders. I'm unable to save into my shared folders.

    Specifically, I'm using TurboScan and trying to save my scans into a shared folder. Only my folders appear when I select to save to OneDrive.

  20. Uploading option

    Hello. I'm a heavy user of you app.

    I have configured the app to upload automatically my iPhone photos and videos to OneDrive.

    I want to suggest a new option: at Camera Uploading screen, enable the option to check/uncheck the photos or videos to upload at this moment. The reason is that I've recorded a 20 mins video at 4K, the file size is 2 GB and this file is still uploading to the cloud; besides, this file has queued the other small size pictures that could be uploaded quickly before the bigger one.

    Looking forward to hearing from you…
