  1. Double page display in PDF view

    Hey guys, I love the PDF reader in OneDrive. What would really improve an already excellent feature set would be the option to show two pages side to side when in landscape view

  3. Display File List In One or Two Columns

    I would like to have the ability to show the list of files in only one or two columns. Currently in the three column format files with longer names are indecipherable especially if many of them begin with the same prefix and end in the same suffix.

    It would be ideal to be able to be able to see the files listed and to switch between a tiled view, three columned view, two columns or single column.

    Thanks for a great app though.

  4. Photos app

    I love onedrive and use it to store all my files but one problem that i have is that there aren't as many features for photos compared to flickr or google photos. So it'd be really great to have a separate photos app like that on windows 10

  5. Location services

    There is no conceivable reason why auto photo upload needs location services.

    It's astounding how much better the Dropbox app is than one drive, given the resources of both companies.

    Really trying to like your cloud services but I feel penalized for using them.

  6. Allow editing option

    When I invite people to share a file the default option is 'allow editing'. This seems to be the wrong default to me, surely I should have to make a positive decision to allow editing. There doesn't seem to be a way to change this default in settings.

  7. Please stop deleting offline content

    It is very frustrating when I try to open offline content when I have no wifi or cellular service and I discover that the content I previously downloaded for offline use was deleted by an update. This keeps happening over and over.

  8. Support of special characters for file and directory names in OneDrive app for iOS

    OneDrive for Windows fully supports special characters like german umlauts in file and directory names. They are also supported in the OneDrive webbinterface and in Word for iOS. But when I open a file with an umlaut in the path in OneDrive for iOS and from there open Word to edit it I get an error.

  10. Prioritize Native files app integration

    I’ve switched to Google Drive for my important files because they are more accessible in the iPads files app. Native implementation (as opposed to the current window overlay) is crucial, as this also means native drag & drop integration

  11. Viewing list of files

    When you are viewing files and the file names are too long, it is difficult to see the complete file name.

    Suggestion:
    To have an option to select a view which list all files in a single column across the screen (will then be able to see long file names in full)

    Regards

  12. Folder settings

    With many folders in OneDrive it would be convenient to have a global sort and folder view setting to avoid having to change the settings on every folder.

  13. 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.

  15. Cast photos and video via airplay, chromecast and miracast

    To be able to fling our photo/video library to big screen devices - not just native Airplay but major streaming protocols.

    Not just Android but IOS as well.

  16. Backup contacts to OneDrive

    It would be nice to have backup contacts on iphone to OneDrive feature in the iOS version of OneDrive. (I believe this feature is presently not available in the iOS version of OneDrive)

  17. 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

  19. 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.

  20. 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
