  1. Auto renaming of the copied files is annoying.

    Onedrive as other cloud services would be mainly used to free up mobile storage.

    Tried to copy files from mobile to onedrive. The process was slow. But the most annoying is onedrive auto renamed all the copied files with appending date and time stamp.

    Note it is talking about a few hundred of files, hence the users have to rename each of the copied file if he or she would like to revert the file to the original names.

    The above issues had been reported to MS C S and I was advised that it was a designed behaviour.

  3. Scanning feature creates smaller files/option to choose resolution

    Love the scanner feature, but not that the docs it creates are huge eg a 3 page black and white doc (very little text) scans into a 2.84 MB file. Same doc in Notes scanner is 812kb but even that is too big for some upload sites. A “normal” 3 page pdf would be a lot smaller…. Can we have some options please?

  6. Logfile or other improvements in observability

    Other than looking at the UI, there is no way to see what is syncing or what has synced. Please add a log file or other mechanism for human and machine readable history of operations

  9. "Clean up space on your device" is not available on iOS / iPadOS?

    "Clean up space on your device" is available on Android (as you can see from the screenshot) but its not available on iOS / iPadOS? Can we please add this to the app so we can use it in our Education related deployment (using MDM)? Right now we can't deploy the app because there is no automatic way to remove backed up photos.

    BTW this feature is available on Google Photo also, its called "Free up space". We're trying to NOT go down the Google Photo path if we can.

    I do not want to enable "Automatic camera upload" I have turned it off but it is still prompting me to enable it which I do not. If I click on it mistakenly it starts to upload again.

    Enable this feature.

  12. True MultiWindow Support and Cursor Support (Right click Actions) on iPad

    there is no proper multi window support on the OneDrive app, which really is a bummer. I can’t open a new window by itself by dragging up from the dock. Nor can I open folders or files other than Office files. This is really limiting and majorly hinders the experience.

    Furthermore, there is no proper mouse clicks support. I can’t right click on the files and folders to get additional options like I can in the office apps. This is really annoying to be honest. Now with cursor support that launched with iPadOS 13.4, I use my iPad with the…

  14. Two-page pdf view for iOS

    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.

  16. No deleting of existing items

    Once you download your items from your phone to one drive make it where they will remain on one drive even if you delete them from your phone. What is the sense of downloading things to one drive to store things if you can't delete the files from your phone any ways afterwards to save space on your phone.

  17. Global setting for every folder’s default view and sort options

    Hello. I like to always view my OneDrive folders in details view sorted by name. It’s very annoying to keep having to change this for every new folder because the defaults are different.

    I think there should be a global default setting for every folder, new or existing, that could be set to each user’s preferences.

    Then, as is already possible, each separate folder could have its own view settings, but I find it very annoying to have a default status which is not what I want.

    Thanks!

  19. Pin files to the home page.

    I would like to be able to pin a file to the home page on the app (or better yet, pin the file to the iOS Home Screen). For my particular use case, I have a digital (PDF) copy of a textbook that I need readily available without needing 20 clicks to find.
