  1. Add option to Upload photos when power is connected

    As subject, I don't want one drive consuming my battery when uploading, so please add option to allow upload when on power connected

  2. Please introduce action router gestures for file and folders.

    Dear team, Thanks a lot for making one drive on iOs accessible. When using voiceover it would be excellent if you can introduce action router elements for delete and share actions at folder and file level.

  3. Loading in background

    Is it possible for a update soon that allows us to upload to one drive in the background like having the app on uploading over wifi etc. it's not always easy to batch load and leave my phone on for hrs running on just this app as I have email, messages and other stuff to do

  4. New option to save a document locally

    Could you create an option to allow us to mark a document that would save the document locally, for when times it is needed and you do not have any service. This document would continue to be synced just like all other documents in the cloud.

  5. "Empty Recycle Bin" Option on iOS

    The only way now to empty anything in your recycle bin is by selecting each item (iOS at least). But, what if I want to delete the 2,000+ items in the recycle bin, all at once? You apparently can do this on web, but it doesn't work for me. Also, being able to more easily empty the recycle bin would save some server space, right? Every little BIT counts!

  7. Geotagging, file names and invalid sort order on iOS

    Problems:

    a) Furthermore, the file names of the uploaded photos are in GMT time and not in the local time zone (in my case GMT+2/+3 DST).

    b) Photos are not sorted in the right order, if Geotagging is enabled. They appear as I they were shot 7+ hours before the actual time.

    Solutions:

    a) OneDrive Personal accounts should be given the option to change the time zone to the desired one, hence correct file naming will be applied.

    b) Geotagging information should be combined with the user-defined time zone and used to show the photos in the right order.

  8. Option in iOS app to upload only while charging

    There is now an option to upload only while charging in the Android app, but this feature has not been extended to the iOS app. Please implement this on iOS as well.

  9. ios 9 open in place

    Support the new "open in place" functionality in iOS 9! This allows other apps to open and save files directly in OneDrive, instead of having to share the file to an external app, edit the file in the external app, and then share the same file back into OneDrive.

    For example, if I have a Pixelmator file (.pxm) in the current version of OneDrive, I will have to save a copy of the file to Pixelmator first, then edit the copy in Pixelmator, and then use Pixelmator's share capability to save the copy back into OneDrive.

    With "open in place",…

  10. Fight with Apple in order to resguard our devices backup instead iCloud.

    Why we must paid several cloud services? Apple must integrate third parties in iOS, not only the iCloud service.

  12. Allow download of files in mobile app

    I just wasted the better part of an hour trying to get at a file that I put in OneDrive to be able to edit it on all my devices. The problem was in iOS I can't do anything with the files. I simply wanted to download the file or at least attach it to an email. The file was a .doc and I needed to edit it on my iPad which didn't have an internet connection at the time. If I could have selected the file and send it from my iPhone to my iPad via AirDrop that would…

  13. Selectively upload photo/video with more setting options

    I don't need everything to be uploaded to my One Drive. I hope there're options allowing user to choose what there want to upload.
    At the camera roll tab, the app will auto detect all the photo and video in the camera roll and start uploading.

    Add more options for user to choose while uploading camera roll.
    1. Before it starts to upload, at the list, (add a pause button) allow user to remove photo/video that they don't want to upload.
    2. Whether user want to upload videos
    3. Upload order, latest-oldest, oldest-latest. (I wanted to sync my latest photos…

  14. OPEN FILES WITH CODE

    OneDrive does not open my .xlxs files with passwords. I would love if it was avaliable, so I would not have to put some files in another cloud, that open files with password.

  16. Additional "DETAIL (LIST-)VIEW" for Folders and Files on iPads

    In the existing LIST VIEW on iPad - with THREE files/folders per row - the NAMES of files and folders are often extremely "CUT OFF", so that it can be very difficult to find a file or folder, especially when they have similar names ("Letter from Xxxxxxxx to Yyyyyyyy - Subject Zzzzzzzz")

    Therefore it would VERY useful to have an ADDITIONAL "DETAIL (LIST-)VIEW", where each row should only show ONE file or folder (!), so that file and folder names would NOT have to be cut off regularly.

    [With respect to the role of MICROSOFT in connection with the new…

  18. Photos Albuns with wrong dates after iOS 9 upgrade

    After upgrading to iOS 9 the photo albums show pictures with wrong dates (many of them in 2016).

    I have already reinstalled the app, to see if it was some sort of local data problem but it persists.

    Same onedrive account on onedrive in older version os iOS (another device) and every photo shows with correct order and date.

  20. Automatically cache recently taken photos on mobiles

    It would be great to have the ability to automatically cache the latest photos taken on a mobile device. This way we could skip the local storage complete and just rely on Onedrive.

    And it would be nice to be able to control this cache size.
