  2. Photos tab option

    An option to be able to choose the folder from which to display photos when the photos tab is selected. Currently it displays all photos in one drive which makes it bloated with many items that don't matter

  3. Update the camera scanner in the mobile app

    The camera scanner from within the app rarely captures the entire page, often cuts off sections of the page and frequently rotates pages within a multi page document. Sometimes you CANNOT make the blue border surround the entire page even though it’s a white document on a black background. If there are any horizontal lines on the document, the scanner borders will “see” those lines as the page border and nothing you do with adjusting the angle or distance your phone is from the document helps. Other, free apps, have much better scanners and produce better quality scans, but then…

  4. Move from email to phone for tech service

    Immediate phone service rather than email service for tech problems. It Is incredible ludicrous that you would require that we wait 24 hours for feedback. Who has time for that.

  5. Editing “names” of older files on OneDrive APP not allowed

    Pictures I loaded to my OneDrive (from my computer) about a year ago. I can rename them on my computer, but when trying to rename them on the app, the past 2-months I get a “THE ITEM COULD NOT BE RENAMED” pop up (image attached). For any pictures I uploaded recently (from the app) I can still change those file names.

    I work mostly from the app so would be ideal to not have to get logged into my computer to have to rename these files. Any help would be appreciated.

  6. Manage One Drive Settings through Intune

    We would like to configure "Camera Upload" through Intune. At the moment we have to configure this feature in 400+ iPads manually. If we don't enable this feature the Photos won't sync to One Drive automatically.

  7. Can I zoom in more on PDFs for note taking?

    Zoom on PDFs seems not big enough to take notes between lines.

  9. Fingerprint Requirement Timeout (iOS/iPhone/Android)

    Allow a user-selectable timeout option to delay having to re-press my fingerprint to access the OneDrive app. For instance, when loading the app and viewing a document I use my fingerprint to log in to OneDrive. Great. But if I switch apps for any reason and come back to OneDrive, even immediately, I have to use my fingerprint again. Perhaps a variable setting of 30s, 1min, 2mins, 5mins, 10mins, 30mins, etc where within that time period I wouldn't have to use my fingerprint. That'd be GREAAT!

  10. Use Geocodes from iPhone photos

    Would be great if OneDrive could take the geocodes from iPhone photos as they’re being uploaded to Cameraroll.

  11. Textbook scan

    The built in scanner to OneDrive for iOS is fantastic. However, as a student, I frequently have a need to scan textbook pages and the built in scanner is not very good at capturing those. Please build in a book/textbook option to the built in scanner. Thanks!

  12. Add the personnel vault to the bottom menu bar not in folder view

    I hate that microsoft always adds stuff to the home folders view (download folders, vaults).
    It changes the way you personally organize your folders and is intrusive.
    Something like a “Vault" should be on a menu bar not in the list of folders.

  13. Onedrive business app IOS acess of shared folders by external users

    Please allow other organizations users to acess shared folders through IOS onedrive for business app

    External User (other organization) is now able to syncronize my shared folders only online (web) or with desktop onedrive for business program, after creating a "guest user" at my organization (azure).

    BUT that same external user, which can "See" the folders online and at the desktop, CANNOT see the same folder with de IOS app.

    it's not logical

  14. Add appconfig xml to onedrive for JAMF

    I was wondering whether we could get app config included in order to push a logged in account + settings to the app through jamf or intune?
    https://www.appconfig.org/

    We have hundreds of devices and would like to push these account settings in a much more automated way.

  15. Add configuration option to set default for Scan button. All user to select default option instead of Document.

    Allow user to configure default scan option. The default is document and we have teams of people who use photo the last option. Make this a user configurable setting. I have to repetitively select scan then swipe - swipe - swipe before I take each photo. It's not user friendly.

  16. Drawing feature for Office app for iPad

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    iPad 用 Office アプリの描画機能について

    Drawing feature for Office app for iPad


    ■Description(内容):
    以前まで、iPad 用 Office アプリでは閲覧権限のファイルに対して描画を行い、変更内容を保存する時に新しくファイルを作ることで保存できたが、現在は閲覧権限の Office ファイルに対しては描画ができず、ファイルを複製してから描画を行う必要があり不便に感じているため、戻す機能を提供して欲しい。
    また、モバイル用アプリでは、いつ仕様変更が行われたのかなどの公開情報が乏しく、ロードマップ等に詳細を公開して欲しい。

    Previously in Office app for iPad, it was possible to draw a file with view permission and to save the file as a new one. However, currently users are not allowed to draw the view permission file directly. To do so, we must copy the file first and then make drawing to it.
    For improvement of usability, roll back the previous way and let users to draw the file and then make a copy file.
    In addition…

  20. Onedrive app no longer bookmarks the page you were on when switching between multiple pdf files

    onedrive 11.0.10 on ios 12.4.1 no longer bookmarks the page you were on when switching between multiple pdf files. It worked fine in the OneDrive app a few versions ago.

    Repro:
    1. kill onedrive then open it
    2. open Documents folder then open a pdf
    3. scroll to a page (e.g. 5) then press the back arrow <- to exit back to Documents
    4 open a different pdf and scroll to a page (e.g. 4) then press the back arrow <- to exit back to Documents
    5. open the first pdf again.

    What happened:
    Either the page is as expected…
