  2. 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.

  6. Show the Title View of the file you are viewing in the Navigation Bar

    Now we have to go to Details to see the file name.

    Why only folders show the name there?

  7. home wifi auto upload instead of location tracking on

    it will be much better to let user choose when and where to upload the photos, I don't mind to keep open one drive as soon as it detect I'm using home wifi or I'm charging in home wifi condition so it will start upload

  9. Progress bar/upload status on picture upload folder?

    Overall, I really like this app. Just like my iPhone, it just works, except when it doesn't. However, one thing that bugs me is that when I go to "pictures" -> camera uploads; it tells me that my pictures are uploaded and up to date, yet they are nowhere to be found.

    What I have to do on occasion is go to "photos" and select "camera upload" and then my pictures start uploading, but sometimes when I don't do anything my pictures will upload automatically. I do have the app set to automatically upload.

    What I would like to see…

  10. Have an option to use object eraser rather than pixel eraser

    The current implementation of the eraser markup tool in OneDrive uses a pixel eraser which only erases a certain area. I would like to see the option to switch to an object eraser that deletes whole annotation objects. For instance, I would like to be able to erase highlights but not the text.

  11. Enable two-page view for pdf

    Bigger Ipad Pro in horizontal mode has plenty of room for two pages. I use Ipad with music notes and also sometimes annotate pdfs with pencil. Missing two-page view is the biggest deficiency in Onedrive for iOS.

  14. The shortcut of a SharePoint Site folder added to my OneDrive doesn't work

    While the shortcut works from a browser and PC, the "add shortcut to my OneDrive" didn't work on the mobile app. This happens to both Androids and iOS devices.
    It shows "The folder is empty" while clearly, it's not. After sign out and back in. the message shows "This shortcut no longer works" but it does work if accessed from the website.

    Please advise what's the cause of it. Is it the size of the folder?

  15. Display full file name

    We need the file names to be displayed in full. With the option of removing some columns. Similiar to Windows Explorer list view.
    We have to click detailed info on multiple files to find the right one sometimes.

  16. Follow iOS 14 design language on iPadOS: sidebar, favorites

    After starting to use the new design layout on iPad OS with files for example, oneDrive starts to feel very outdated (it is actually just an extended : the column layout would be a big improvement, especially if you are able to implement favorite folders/pin location to avoid all the drill downs that currently take place each time we open the app.

  17. Scan already captured images from device gallery

    OneDrive is a super organised way of storing data on cloud, but recently I faced a lack of feature that Onedrive doesn’t allow is to scan already captured images from our devices. This is feature of a actual importance to me & my team as we everyday have a lot of documents to scan and upload to our Onedrive accounts & sometimes these documents are sent to us over email or Whatsapp instead of physical files. Please help.

    Thanking you.

  18. Allow Opening Multiple Files

    There are times when I am using multiple files at the same time. I'm having to navigate to them in my folders to get between them right now. They don't always show up in "recent" files for some reason. It would be great if you could have tabs and switch between 2-3 open files at the same time.

    Next, please allow to save multiple attachments from email to OneDrive all at once and not document at a time in iOS for iPad and iPhone.

  20. Get bitmap PDF reading back

    With the latest versions, I get black screens when reading bitmap PDF.

    This doesn't occur when opening text / vector PDF.

    Please make it working again as now the only solution is to open them thru 3rd party apps, such as Adobe Acrobat.
