Copy files on mobile (Onedrive for iOS)
Please add the option to copy (not just move) files or folders to the onedrive App for iOS.
Would be great and should not be a big deal to implement.

A Suggestion For ISO users.
You can Copy files in a folder but can’t copy a folder
Locate the folder With
The file u want to copy
Way up in the very Rt Upper corner Are three •••
Click it Scroll down and click print then take your 2 fingers and blow it up.
look way up In the Right Upper Corner is The share click on it Then you can save the copy to One-Drive
Or Any Other Drive Etc That you wish To.
It would be very useful to be able to create copies of files your use as templates for example blueprints in the Ipad-app

I thought Microsoft was making a come-back with its cloud services, but clearly that is not the case. I'm taking my money elsewhere. I'm tired of waiting.
Can we please get some input from Microsoft on where they are with this feature.? Working on it? Thinking about it? In the plans? This is such a critical function for just basic file management.
What is this for a kind of barbarity.
Do you think we are some kind of savages?
Is it because you don’t like Apple? What the **** is the reason?
It's so strange that this feature isn't available in the app. Copying documents in a file management app is such a basic expectation.

Agree, I’m using the mobile app more and more on my IPad but now and again I have to turn back to my laptop just to copy a few files.
As others have suggested, this is a core feature - available in competing software - and its absence has hampered my use of OneDrive for serious work. Please fix.

This basic “copy” feature is available on ALL the major competitors iOS app: BOX, Drop Box, Google Drive etc.... this feature was available on the One Drive iOS app up until a few years ago. Not sure why this was disabled or removed. It is a fundamental and essential feature to have. One should not have to leave the iOS app and log in via a browser to have access to this. Please resolve this as soon as possible. I pay money to use OneDrive and have had it as my primary Cloud solution, but am now considering just moving over to a competitor because this is an unnecessary inconvenience. Please resolve. I encourage users to give this a few more months to be resolved, and if it’s not to consider the competitors which still offer this feature and many others on their native iOS apps.
3.5 yrs and still no copy function. 🙁 I’m not getting my hopes up for this feature anytime soon. 🤬
I use this regularly, but the only way to do it currently is to go into the Files app from Apple and do it. Would prefer to not have to leave the OneDrive App for something so simple.

Quero a possibilidade de copiar ficheiros dentro do One Drive.
Nao faz sentido ter um sistema de organizar pastas sem haver a possibilidade de copiar ficheiros ou pastas.

One can do it if you open OneDrive online, but this and save as are basic necessary functions that need to be available in all apps on all platforms.
Yes please sometimes it’s very useful to have a document copied into another folder. Much more efficient use of resources and time. Other platforms offered including IOS and have for some time, so presumably it has reasonable utility
Need a copy and paste option please

Hello Microsoft, this urgently needed suggestion is already five years online and nothing happens. Do you read the uservoices? It is not to understand that OneDrive is missing the copy functionality.
