When I open any folders or sub folders, I have to always keep changing the grid view and sort as per my requirement. My sorting is also in acceding order. So example we have files 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15. This is the proper sorting order but, in one drive it happens like the below
1 10 12 13 14 15 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
It has to be done in proper order and moreover in the main screen when I choose what sort and grid I want, it adapts it and implements it automatically on all the files and folders.
This is really important for you as this is something a lot of customers are not happy about.
This request should include the possibility to choose a type of view. Grid is horrible for anything but pictures. I don't understand how I'm supposed to identify a Word or Excel files with a few letters and an icon.
The sort order is the most annoying - and they can get it right because it's right on OneDrive on the web.
So if I have folders like:
They appear in the right order (as above) on OneDrive on the web but in iOS you get
Please choose one (preferably the first) and standardise it across all platforms!
agreed. the way the Onedrive allows for keeping files or folders in order is absolutely nuts. makes it utterly impossible to find what your looking for efficiently.

It would help a lot if you could set a preferred sorting in the app. By default the app will sort by date, but 95% of the time I would like to sort by name.
I have been complaining about this for a long time and every time I send feedback through the app, I get a reply saying 'I regret to inform you that currently this feature is not available. I will add your suggestion to the list of ideas we’re considering for implementation. If you have a minute, please take a look at the OneDrive UserVoice and vote for your other favorite ideas'. I wouldn't call this basic file sorting a 'feature'! It makes finding files so much much of a pain in the app (get it lol).. come on OneDrive, surely this is a super easy fix??
