      • Writing function

        The updated writing is excellent. However, there are still two things need to fix :
        1. The writing style is not smooth, and words look ugly.
        2. The eraser is too tricky to use. I want a part of my writing, but it erases everything I wrote.

        • Don’t recommend HEIC - you don’t support it!

          In your iOS OneDrive app under camera upload settings - don’t recommend uploading in the HEIC file format as Windows does not natively support it without having to buy that functionality!

          Maybe instead explain - HEIC if you use MAC, JPEG if you use windows.

          Or better still - get the windows devs to add HEIC support FOC and stop trying to capitalise on it 🤨

            • Default folder for scanned photos from camera

              When scanning a photo/document using camera and uploading to a folder, its very handy if I could have a default folder so I dont need to select the target location for my scanned document every single time

              • The VoiceOver screen reader on iOS is unable to be used for navigating and interacting with the Settings page.

                This is a critical accessibility issue because it prevents blind and visually impaired users from being able to change any app Settings.

                • Correct date on photos

                  The photo's dates are totally wrong in the iOS app, in the meanwhile on the computer they are correct, you should fix this feature so when I download the photos in my phone I don't have issues in seeing them.

                    • The uploaded photo file name is 8 hours earlier than the actual shooting time.

                      When I sync the photos in my phone to my OneDrive, The photos will be renamed, the new file name includes a timestamp, But this time is 8 hours earlier than my shooting time.
                      For example, a photo shooting time is 2018/10/10 16:05
                      When this photo is uploaded to on, Its file name is 20181010_080539987_iOS.jpg
                      Its correct file name should be 20181010_160539987_iOS.jpg
                      My time zone is UTC/GMT+8
                      Obviously, OneDrive renamed the file using the time after converting to UTC/GMT 0 time zone.
                      I don't have this problem on my Android phone.
                      Thanks for listening and for the great app.

                      iOS…

                      • Customize Tabs in OneDrive for Business

                        The tabs at the bottom of the OneDrive for Business app appear to be fixed with Files, Recent, Shared, and Sites. It would be nice if we could customize those tabs...for instance, replacing Sites with Photos.

                        • Remembering Last Page

                          The only issue I have is I have a problem with them “timing out” if I close them for too long (Which could be as short as 30 seconds). I have my anatomy book on OneDrive and I read it on my iPad, but if I leave the app to look up a term or something on the Internet, when I go back to OneDrive, I’m back out to the screen where I have to select what file I want to view. This being paired with no ability to bookmark pages, scrolling down to page 700 every time I want…

                          • Support Raw Uploads for Raw & Jpeg "Pairs"

                            When the Camera Roll has Raw and Jpeg "Pairs" OneDrive seems to only upload the Jpeg. There should be some means to upload the raw (ideally as well or a user choice).

                            Copying/backing-up only the Jpeg and ignoring the Raw is no backup (raws are far more important for people that take raw!)

                            • “Delete empty Tags”

                              Delete the empty tags. After deleting the useless (usually automatically generated) tags from my pics, they still exist under the tags tab. I need to delete the empty tags - the ones that have no pics assigned to them. The tagging system is useless if I can’t set it up with MY tags.

                                • Quality slider & Black & White option when using the "Scan" function with the camera to save as PDF.

                                  File sizes of PDFs on iOS mobile app are way higher than they are on the Android mobile app. One of my users showed me the interface on his iPhone for the Dropbox scan to PDF function. It has a slider for quality/resolution and an option for B&W vs color. Scanning receipts for inclusion on an expense report on Android is ~400k and on iOS is 2-3MB
                                  These 2-3mb files can be opened in Acrobat Standard and saved as optimized PDF and they shrink down to 400-500k which is good, but it's an extra step and extra licenses that not…

                                    Similar to how the default iOS camera app allows you to take images in a square resolution, it would be great to capture images in the Onedrive app with a Square resolution

                                      La app debería contar con la funcionalidad de subir links a la App de OneDrive. Y así mismo que existan diferentes opciones para el manejo de link subidos previamente ya que al dar click en un link ya guardado no se puede abrir por ninguna forma en un explorador web como safari o Chrome para iPhone. Se adjuntan fotos como evidencia de que no existe la funcionalidad, ni si quiera al dar click en carga más.
