  1. 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

  2. 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!

  4. Uploaded file names

    If possible, please allow the app to upload photos with same photo file name from phone's photos app. In few cases like when i remove the app and reinstall because other things, same files are getting uploaded with different name. This can be fixed if photos or videos are uploaded into OneDrive with same file name as in the photos app of phone. Please do it or give us the option in settings.

    Thanks for listening and for the great app

  5. PDF of Annotations

    Hi,
    You are doing great work on this app. I would really like to be able to export only my annotations, and send them by email, or save them as a pdf. The app seems to allow me to print them, but then I would have to type them all again for my research.
    An app that does this well is tinyPDF, but it doesn't maintain a sync with the cloud.
    Thanks
    Anthony

  7. Add text/code editing

    As you do in the browser version of onedrive could you also allow users to edit or at least view code or text files within the onedrive app?

  8. ePub file handling

    Hello,

    It's neat that I don't need iTunes to put ePub files in my iOS devices now, thanks to onedrive. However, I would like to be able to send multiple books to iBooks. Maybe give that a shot.

  9. Adding tool for "Undo" to be used for deleted files

    Adding a tool "Undo" to be used for deleted files and folders, sometimes we are deleting files accidentally, adding a fixed bottom or tool with long lasting to undo is a good thing.

  10. Please add: ‘open containing folder’ option in the context menu after search

    After doing a search, I would like to quickly find similar or related files in the same folder. There is no quick way to open the folder of a found file and browse its contents.

  11. 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!!!

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. A Favorites Section

    Though the Files app on iOS could use a lot of work, one thing I really like is that I can save a files and folders under a favorites section. That would be great if OneDrive offered something like that. That way I can quickly get to the folders and files I use the most. The Files app does not handle document previews, outside of PDFs, very well and I like how OneDrive does this. Plus I love that I can just click on the Word, Excel, or PowerPoint icon and it will open it in that app, instead of…

  15. Selection

    Is it possible to allow for multiple selection of images by sliding your finger as opposed to selecting each individual file by tapping?

  16. 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…

  17. 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.

  19. 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.
