  2. Add notifications for file updates

    I use OneDrive to store log files from some monitoring software so I can access remotely. Can you add a notification option so that a notification is shown on the Lock or Home Screen if a selected file is updated in OneDrive?

  3. When opening a shared link on the iPad, I want to open it directly in the Excel app / iPad で共有リンクを開く際に、直接 Excel アプリで開くきたい

    When you open an email with a shared link attached to an email on your iPad and tap the link in the Outlook app, you must open it in the OneDrive mobile app and then tap [Excel] to open it in the Excel app.
    Since there are many screen transitions, I would like to improve the operation so that it opens directly in the Excel application.

    iPad で共有リンクをメールに添付したメールを、Outlook アプリで開きリンクをタップした際に、一度 OneDrive モバイルアプリで開いてから、さらに [Excel] をタップしなければ Excel アプリで開かない。
    画面遷移が多いため、直接 Excel アプリで開くように動作の改善を希望します

  4. OneDrive select camera upload folder

    This improvement is similar to the idea: Separate folders for each device backing up to the camera roll

    I'd love to choose the upload folder for camera uploads to OneDrive since I'm having my own structure with uploading photos to OneDrive..
    Currently I'm sadly using an external app for this (PhotoSync)

  5. Sugerencia del uso Onedrive y GMail

    Sugiero exista la posibilidad de adjuntar desde un mensaje de Gmail en un iPhone un archivo de OneDrive dado que la única posibilidad existente es Fotos o Drive, así mismo nos facilitaría que cuando tú descargas un archivo o foto de OneDrive tener la posibilidad de elegir dónde dado que las fotos puedes descargar a Fotos pero no un Archivo. Gracias

  7. Make photo upload dialog sticky (do not restart upload)

    When uploading pictures from the Photos app, the share photos dialog of OneDrive can be easily moved.

    If you slide it just slightly down, the upload starts again!

    Make the upload modal dialogue sticky, so that the upload will continue when scrolling through the list of pictures being uploaded to OneDrive.
    (Kind of set isModalInPresentation to true.)

  8. Option to show file extensions

    I would like an option to show files settings in the iOS app.

    This is especially an issue when trying to view a GitHub repository, for example. Files such as .gitignore just don’t have a file name.

  9. Función Favoritos

    OneDrive es muy util pero sería aún más si se pudieran seleccionar archivos o carpetas como favoritos y así poder acceder de manera más fácil a ellos. Por ejemplo, en el explorador de archivos de windows o de iPadOS se pueden seleccionar archivos o anclar como favoritos.
    Algo similar en OneDrive seria fabuloso pues hay ciertos archivos a los que se accede de manera habitual y así podrían estar más accesibles.

  12. C'mon Microsoft, it's 2021! Why do you still have "illegal characters" in file/folder names in iOS??

    It's mind-boggling that we're this far down the road of advancements in computing, and yet Microsoft still insists on having "illegal characters" that we can't use in our file & folder names. Especially on Macs and iOS devices!! Can't you come into the 21st century already??

  13. Remember last location, instead of always reverting to the top level.

    It seems almost all other cloud storage services can remember the last folder/file a user had accessed, yet OneDrive always reverts to the top level when you open it again. This is maddening when you have a ton of levels of nested folders in One Drive!

  14. Offer device-wide display preferences

    On my iOS devices, OneDrive seems to always want to display in icon/tile view, as opposed to list view. I want to be able to choose list view as my default throughout the app.

  15. Providing a Find option

    It would be extremely helpful to have a “find on page” or “Find in document” option available in the file viewer.

  17. Compatibility with the iPadOS Files Application

    When Apple introduced their Files Application , the were no compatibility issues with the One Drive Application for iPadOS .

  18. Show thumbnails for all files that are supported in Files app.

    The files app shows thumbnails for many file formats, including Affinity files as well as Clip Studio files. Maybe it is possible to use those previews in OneDrive?

    If not, support for popular graphic formats is greatly appreciated, like the aforementioned: Affinity Designer, Photo and Publisher, as well as Clip Studio Pro

  19. Create new folder from iOS share feature

    When sharing items from iOS, such as photos, OneDrive allows you to select which account and which folder you want to send those items to. However, it doesn't allow you to create a new folder and it looks like there is space in the top right corner of the screen for a new folder button.

    This would help substantially in reducing the number of steps it takes to get organized. Who else wants this feature? Hopefully an easy add that will create a more seamless overall experience.

  20. Allow PDF editing to turn off Pencil/Pen smoothing

    The PDF markup feature on iPad allows a user to mark up with a Pencil PDF documents. This has an inbuilt smoothing feature which is fine if you are drawing lines and arrows, etc. But is extremely difficult to naturally write notes with a pen. This causes letters to be malformed or not connected and is not a natural writing experience.

    Suggestion: Provide a setting to turn off smoothing and use a natural handwriting pen like OneNote.
