  1. 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

  3. 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.

  5. OneDrive Cast onto other Microsoft Devices

    Please provide us an ability cast photos or videos on OneDrive from an iphone. I have allready accepted my fate on ios with the inability to miracast local content. Instead, please provide the ability to cast my content from OneDrive to a miracast enabled device or another ms device like the Xbox.

  6. Multiple Accounts associated with Office365

  7. Allow opening fillable PDFs in another app. The function is currently disabled

    Allow PDFs to be opened in other apps as form fillable. Currently PDFs opened in other apps from OneDrive do not allow opening as a fillable pdf

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. Need to see full file names, suggest single column view

    All my file names are truncated which makes it impossible to differentiate between them at a glance. A solution could be to allow viewing files in a single column so there is more room to show longer file names. A single column view would make sense especially when the iPad is in portrait orientation. Thanks, Colin

  11. Dark mode for PDF reading

    Please add a dark mode feature for reading PDF docs. Adobe has implemented this in their iOS app and it is a great feature

  12. Email attachments

    I find the ability to open a saved outlook email a fantastic benefit of filing emails in one drive. It would be even better if an attachment Worthing the email was accessible as well.

  15. Organization

    You should suggest removal of photos once they have been added to an album so they don't get added twice. Make the initial location of photos basically, a temporary location until it has been organized.

  16. Save as button

    PDF reader should have a save as button to avoid having to overwrite files that should be read only.

  17. Remove location

    Please remove the need of use of location for auto upload. I want just to auto upload any photos or videoa in background but without using my location. I do not see the point of it plus it uses more battery. Thanks

  18. Open multiple pdf at the same time?

    Dear sir/madam,

    Greetings, nowadays we usually work by opening multiple PDFs and making comparisons between them

    It would be awesome if future update can include the ability to open multiple PDFs within the app (e.g. for side to side view)

    Thankyou very much!

  19. Separating mobile upload from video upload in options

    Greetings, I'd really prefer if I didn't have to choose between mobile upload and video upload in the options. Pictures would still be fine uploaded on mobile connections, whereas videos would likely easily go over one's traffic limit. Therefore, an option to keep mobile upload on without video upload (which would then be the only one to have to wait for wi-if) would be much appreciated.
