  2. Search doesn't work

    Recently I tried to use the search feature and it didn't work. Submitted a form to request help and the response was along the lines of "yes, we are working on the issue...ETA for resolution is unknown...maybe will be in the next update". I would have thought it would be more like "holy cow Batman! we need to fix that ASAP".

    I posted this in OneDrive for iOS, but this particular issue also occurred on the web version.

    My suggestion: GET THE BASICS RIGHT before adding cute features. Period. Full stop.

    There are too many bugs and issues throughout the…

  3. Ability to save and share as an image and as a PDF

    option to save as a PDF or an image (JPEG) like they do in other scanner apps.

    Also, add the ability to select pages. if there are more pages in a document one should be able to share or save just the selected pages (as an image or a PDF).

  5. Custom Sort Photo albums

    Not to be able to sort photo albums is just plainly idiotic. As is the answer given by Onedrive Support. I quote:

    "Since the Photo albums are personalized view of your photos, you cannot sort them as per your preference and it is working as designed."

    Firstly, if they are a personalised view then of course I ought to be able to sort them as I want

    Secondly, mine is not a new idea, it has been requested almost ever since Onedrive first came out.

    Why does Microsoft not listen???

  6. The shortcut added to my OneDrive doesn't work on mobile app

    While the shortcut works from a browser and PC, the "add shortcut to my OneDrive" didn't work on the mobile app. This happens to both Androids and iOS devices.
    It shows "The folder is empty" while clearly, it's not. After sign out and back in. the message shows "This shortcut no longer works" but it does work if accessed from the website.

    Please advise what's the cause of it. Is it the size of the folder?

  9. Support for uncompressing zip files in iOS Files app

    The Files app added support for uncompressing .zip files in iOS 13. However, it doesn't work for OneDrive for Business even though it works for iCloud Drive. I presume this is because Microsoft has yet to add support for this feature in their integration with Files. Please add support for this.

  10. Timestamps on photos changes when being transferred from icloud to laptop to one drive

    Photos that I download from iCloud to my laptop and then upload to OneDrive are sometimes filed under the correct month/year that the photo was taken, but some of them end up being filed under the month/year of the day it was uploaded to OneDrive. This makes it difficult to have a properly organized photo collection. Would like photos to consistently be uploaded under the month/year that the photo was taken.

  12. Delete Photos on all devices if deleted in OneDrive

    Photos from the camera roll can be synced from iOS to OneDrive and from a lot of other devices. If i work on the photos and delete some i.e. on my Computer, then the Photo gets also deleted on OneDrive. Unfortunately this is not working for the iPhone. There you have to go and manually delete the photo a second time, which is very annoying.

    Perhaps you can implement something like "Autosync for OneDrive - OneSync" which does a greate job on Android

  14. Bettler Integration in file-app on iPad

    Integration in file-App in iOS should be better. Full copy/Paste in folders. Copying of complete folders from iPad-Memory to OneDrive etc.
    It must feel like in Finder on mac or File-Explorer in Windows 10.

  16. Give users an option to disable memories in OneDrive

    I take a lot of photos. Machine learning can’t predict which ones I actually want to see.

    The end result is me turning off OneDrive notifications, and I am frankly annoyed enough to uninstall the OneDrive app.

    I hate it when Facebook does this, I hate it when Apple does it, I hate it when OneDrive does it. It’s a waste of machine learning.

    Just let users turn it off. It shouldn’t be that difficult.

  17. possibility of searching by defined faces and by text on photos

    Hello. in general, everything works fine, but you could add to Onedrive in photos the possibility of searching by defined faces and by objects and content of photos, taking into account the text included on them, such as Google photos, and it will be perfect. best regards

  19. Support for backing up Apple ProRes RAW

    Apple has introduced a new image format ProRAW in IOS 14.3, it would be great if OneDrive would automatically backup these images without converting to JPEG.

    OR

    A similar option to how HEIC works where you can toggle if you'd like your backups to be converted or not.
