  1. Use standard pen taps

    1 tap for writing, 2 for the eraser. Like in most IOS apps. Would be handy.

  2. Make View As List permanent through all Folders

    Please make the different view options ( List or Grid ) permanent through all Folders.
    You have it That way on windows and on the Web Version. But iOS does Not have it.
    It‘s annoying to change to „List“ on every Folder I browse...

  3. search

    I would like the ability to search text files. Right now you can open a text file and view it but you cannot search for text within it. Seems like something simple to implement since it's a text file.

  7. Save to onedrive Default folder save

    Giving option to save to a default location (along with the ability to choose a folder, which is current functionality)
    It would save a lot of time for files saving on iOS to onedrive.

    Similar to current outlook for iso. Save to account all attachments get saved to the attachments folder that is created.

  8. Feature suggestion: love the document scanning function. But: what about adding an option to attach another PDF scan to an existing PDF file

    Feature suggestion: love the document scanning function. But: what about adding an option to attach another PDF scan to an existing PDF file? For example: open a file and select “add another page by scan”

  9. OneDrive on ISO - Annotating PDFs has changed...and now mark-ups look bad

    OneDrive has been my goto app for pdf annotations on the iPad. After the last update, though, the annotations menu has completely changed and making mark-ups is tricky (and ugly) - it's like OneDrive is not longer compatible with apple pencil. This diminishes the usability of the app by a lot!

  11. Save to Libraries from iOS action/share menu

    Maybe I’m missing something obvious, but I can’t find a way to save an image or file in the “share” menu of other apps directly to a shared library. Instead, I have to save it to my individual OneDrive for business then move it once I’m at a computer. I am only able to move files between folders not libraries in the iOS app. Could this be an org permission issue or is this just not possible with the app at the moment?

    See attached. After choosing OneDrive the only options are my folders, not one of the many libraries…

  12. Upload photo in background

    I can see below that there is a lot of suggestion concerning upload photos / movies from iOS to OneDrive in the background, even with the OneDrive APP is closed.

    This function has worked before I promise. So now it is frustrating that it does not work anymore. As I wrote to your support we as OneDrive users has confidential to Microsoft that you take care of our photos. I do not use iCloud for my photos only OnDrive, so what will happend if I loose my mobile and I not have synced with OneDrive for several days.

    I hope…

  13. Shortcuts to Folders

    Please make a way to have a quick shortcut to a folder in my OneDrive. It is very cumbersome to have to navigate through all my subfolders each and every time, I never have to do this on my desktop or Android since I have shortcuts. This is very annoying on iOS, please fix this!

  14. Open OneNote as web version

    As the introduction of desktop class browser of Safari, it would be great to be able to request the editing of OneNote files using the app version or the web version. I've experienced constant crashing of the OneNote app version before and couldn't resolve it until reinstalling the app. This degree of versatility would allow backup solution in a dire situation. Currently if you have the OneDrive app installed, the web version of OneDrive or OneNote will only open the OneDrive app which is convoluted. In addition, the app version of OneDrive could only open the app version of OneNote.

  15. Dark Theme for OneDrive in "iOS 12"

    Now, the OneDrive APP in iOS 13 supports dark mode, but in iOS 12, it doesn't.
    Hope it supports in iOS 12 soon.

  17. Create PDF's also

    With IOS-app for iPad I can view and modify PDF, word, excel and powerpoints. I can also push "+" and create word, excel and powerpoint files, but I cannot create PDF's, which is quite in-convenient, in case I want to take hand-written notes and place directly in the folder. Works perfectly with MS-Office files, but really need it do be able to create PDF's directly also - and not just be able to view/modify.

  20. Allow PDF markup shapes to be erased

    Markup of a PDF can include the addition of shapes (eg square) in addition to pen markup.

    However while pen markup can be erased by the eraser tool, shape markup cannot

    It would be great to have this ability

    This behaviour is seen on iOS OneDrive
