  1. OneDrive compatibility with Azure Information Protection

    We would like the OneDrive app to automatically open O365 documents with applied Azure Information Protection labels in the appropriate O365 app. Currently you have to tap the three-dot options and tell OneDrive to open the document in the correct app.

  2. Is it possible to change the width of the columns to see better the long file names?

    Is it possible to change the width of the columns? In the attached example we see that it is not possible to see the full names of the files, while there are enormous columns for some little numbers of the file size and for only three points for options. So many of useful space is lost. It’s a pity. Thank you if you can fix it.

    Mobile uploads needs to do its job by 1) grouping all pics from each phone separate.
    2) Give me options to filter uploads (i.e which phone folder to include or ex
    clude)

    Reason for 1: I have two phones and it’s an irritating task to look for pics in my One Drive- Because all pictures are grouped in one folder.

    Reason for 2 : I do not want “WhatsApp “ pics , in today’s habit of million memes floating around , it’s just too ouch garbage to filter through when I want to find a picture a picture in OneDrive…

  5. Better syncing for photos

    I recently learned the hard way that the Sync Feature for photos has a limit thats rather low. When i hit 1785 photos, the sync feature stopped working. This is a very low limit that seems to be set at the software level.

    A more reasonable limit of something like 50,000 or so would be a great idea. Some people use OneDrive exclusively for photo storage, so a low storage limit really hinder that.

  6. Dismiss the "camera upload is turned off" message

    The above message is really annoying when you don't want you photos automatically uploaded. Thanks for reminding me but please now go away. Can we have an option to dismiss this message please.

  7. OneDrive Mobile App Personal Vault PIN

    Requiring an additional PIN to use personal vault via the mobile app is stupid. The results in the personal vault actually needing triple authentication BUT only on the mobile app, making the app more of an inconvenience lol.

    Additionally the PIN is not used anywhere else so therefore more likely to be forgotten and cause even more inconvenience.

    Just to reiterate how stupid the mobile app PIN (triple authentication) on personal vault is i was able to move the items out of personal vault on my mobile phone using its web browser without using any PIN and just standard 2…

  8. Please let me turn off "Relive some memories for this day"

    I’m getting too many notifications with OneDrive. I keep getting “Relive some memories from this day” on my iPhone. Curious that I don’t get this on my iPad. I know that I can turn off notifications for OneDrive in iOS but I want to be able to turn off this specific notification and have notifications on in case something important comes up in OneDrive.

  9. Microsoft DELETED the suggestion for returning to the previous Onedrive PDF annotation

    The post of over 1000 votes requesting that onedrive restore its original editing capabilities (notes, highlighter, pen layout, blue side toolbar) was deleted by Microsoft.

    There was a claim that the 'annotation experience' would be improved, but this never occurred.

    The app is still much worse than it was (went from a beautifully made app, to highly tedious to annotate PDFs).

  10. Upload files indicator

    Upload number of files indicator.

    Please return back the feature of showing number of files being uploaded (e.g. 1 of 10 files uploading). With the latest iOS OneDrive application update, it does not inform me anymore and it looks like upload did not work but eventually you realise that it is uploaded eventually.

  11. face id

    Face ID doesn't work in my Onedrive app! I enable the four digit passcode which seems to be a requirement for the Face ID to appear but when I sign out of the app and then I go to sign in again Face ID doesn't appears, instead the app asks for my email and password! Please fix this!

  12. personal vault for mac

    Every device is covered except the Mac. You can use the web from all devices, so that's not the reason. Overlooked? Please add it!

  13. Allow "." (dot/point) in notebook names like "1.1 page", "1.3 page"

    In iOS OneDrive App it is not possible to use correctly "." (dot/point) in OneNote notebook names like
    "1.1 page"
    "1.3 page"

    You can create such a notebook name, but it is displayes as "1"
    (= everythink after the first dot is cutted)

    Seems to be a bug since such notebook names are allowed and correclty displayed in
    1) Win10: OneNote 2016: yes
    2) Win10: App.OneNote: yes
    3) Win10: OneDrive in WindowsExplorer: yes
    4) Office 365 (Online) Sharepoint (Teamwebsite): yes

    Summary

    So when using two notebook names like "1.1 Private" and "1.2 Work", then in iOS.OneDrive you see it two…

  14. Editing in pdf


    1. Please include the Apple Pencil 2 features (double tap to switch between eraser and pencil )


    2. Please work on eraser tool as there is no size adjustment option it deleting everything


    3. There is still a bit lag in writing

  16. Allow hyperlinks to open from PDF files

    We used to be able to open hyperlinks from PDF files and they would open in our web browser. But now we can’t! And why?! For privacy reasons? I don’t see any good reason for that, but I want that function back and I bet there are lots of other people that do too. If that function is turned off for privacy reasons then how about allowing the feature to be toggled on and off? That would solve everything.

  17. Allows you to return to the previous level when the loading interface appears

    Sometimes my network status is particularly bad, but at this time, when I open a certain file, it enters the preview state, but I ca n’t return to the previous level, I can only wait. But I don't know how long to wait, the only way is to close the entire application.
    STUPID DESIGN.
