  1. Improve the PDF annotation experience on iOS

    -updated title -

    The annotation / editing toolbar used to be blue, movable, and convenient. Now it looks like it came straight out of Windows 95 and has very limited functionality; e.g. you can no longer create two parallel pens and switch between them. Especially on the iPad Pro this is a huge loss and I don't see how this is a change for the better. Please bring the modern toolbar back!

    We hear the feedback and working hard to address and improve our PDF annotation editing experience.

    We’ve made several updates to the PDF experience the last 3 months. Including:

    -Saving pen style preferences
    -Apple Pencil usability updates
    -Toolbar UI update
    -improved eraser
    -Free text annotations
    -Saving the position in a PDF

    The team is continuing to work on improvements to our PDF annotation experience and are working on a UI refresh we plan to roll out in the coming months. I’m resolving this one for now, but if there are other specific requests in this area please open new suggestions.

  2. Bring back text editing

    Allow users to add text to a document like is previous versions

  3. Allow automatic upload of photos and video from mobile clients to OneDrive for Business

    Would like to see complete feature parity between OneDrive and OneDrive for Business - well except that the latter would have everything that OneDrive personal had plus some.

    Automatic upload of photos and video is one of the OneDrive Personal features that should be added to OneDrive for Business. I realize the technologies are very different on the backend, but it needs to be done.

  4. Anonymous guest link in OneDrive for Business App

    In my company employees often need to share files stored in their OneDrive for Business folder with external people, like suppliers and customers.

    From the computer they can create a link with no sign-in required, but from the mobile app this is not possible. Because they share files from the mobile with a lot of people they often get in trouble because the recipient don't have an Microsoft account and can't open the link.

    Please update the OD4B app so that it is possible to use this feature from mobile.

  5. Support to HEIF/HEVC Formats

    Since iOS 11 starts to use HEIF/HEVC as the camera photo/video encoding format. Wish OneDrive could support these formats or convert it to JPEG/H264 before uploading.

    Thanks

  6. View of thumbnails in picture folders

    With the new upgrade more emphasis was put on showing the file name rather than the thumbnail. I hate it. I use my picture folders for showing photos and projects to both clients and students from my iPhone. And as a photographer it was a great help. But now the thumbnails are really small and the file names are huge and don't even show the full name. I really don't like that I can't switch that view back to the way it was before. Just because you can create a new preview mode doesn't mean you should.

  7. auto upload creates folder by dates

    When using the auto upload option in the Onedrive app, all images are uploaded to the same folder, even if they were on different folders on the phone.
    This results in a folder with large amount of images that is hard to maintain, and takes forever to load when opened.
    I suggest creating a separate folder for each month (2016_06 for example) and sort the images to different folders by date. This will make the images more organized and will solve the issue of having a huge folder with many files.
