Allow automatic upload of photos and video from mobile clients to OneDrive for Business
Would like to see complete feature parity between OneDrive and OneDrive for Business - well except that the latter would have everything that OneDrive personal had plus some.
Automatic upload of photos and video is one of the OneDrive Personal features that should be added to OneDrive for Business. I realize the technologies are very different on the backend, but it needs to be done.
As announced at Ignite on 9/24/18, Camera Upload is now available for iOS and in beta on Android for OneDrive for Business accounts.
Happy to see this feature in the Roadmap as "Rolling Out" https://products.office.com/en-US/business/office-365-roadmap?filters=onedrive
"Camera Upload for ODB
Automatically upload the photos you take on your Android or iOS device to OneDrive.
Estimated Release: September CY2018
Feature ID: 27013
Added to Roadmap: 05/21/2018

Thx to the team!
It is outrageous that a PAID SERVICE is stripped of a feature that even a FREE ACCOUNT is able to use. It should be the !paying! CUSTOMER who chooses whether to put his pictures on to his "personal" account or his "work account", and NOT microsoft.

Absolutely must have for a cloud application and shocking it's removed from the functionality when this is supposed to be an "upgrade" form a personal OneDrive plan.
Both OneDrive Personal and OneDrive business use the same engine so this is just a daft choice amongst the Microsoft ranks.
I really think this is an absolutely required feature for small sized companies.
I really often take pictures of whiteboard sessions with my phone or documenting pictures and I see it as a security threat having to sync them to a personal account rather to my business account.
Actually, I'm paying for that but have more functionality at the for-free version. This business model seems broken to me :-/

My users are using icloud to sync their photos because we can't use one drive for business. Please implement this feature before we are forced to use more awful apple products.
Please make finally OneDrive for Business capable of automatically backing up any photos from Android phone. As it is now, it only works with personal OneDrive.
Our business depends on pictures of jobs to hand in to clients for close out packages. We would love to keep everything Microsoft and not have to use Dropbox
please provide an ETA for this feature - it is needed by a large audience to be productive using work assigned mobile devices - taking pictures of work-related items and requiring a sync feature to keep projects moving.
What's the status on this?

The photo upload not available in business edition? Seriously? Come on Microsoft, work faster! If you don't hurry we have to switch to a competitor product.
Can you provide a little more specific launch date then just "coming month"?
Please add this feature ASAP!!!

Please add this feature. It's my own business and i can decide for myself to use it or not
Near four years now. How is it possible that this feature takes so long to develop when it's available on the private onedrive accounts?
This is completely f****ing stupid NOT having an option to upload photos to one drive business account. Working in architecture, site photos are essential and not able to sync to cloud is just frustrating
It is common in a business setting to take photos of receipts while traveling. This would allow those receipts to be securely saved in the organizations cloud storage of choice, OneDrive. I understand iCloud offers this service; however in our organization, iCloud is not available for use. Additionally, this would allow a one cloud solution.

Please add automatic photo upload to Onedrive for business from Andriod phones.....we work in the construction industry and photo's are a key part of our business

Please add automatic photo upload to Onedrive for business from Andriod phones. Very confusing and cumbersome to have to use two accounts. I pay for both accounts and should be able to use either one.
Wil van Oorschot commented
Please Microsoft, hurry with this feature!

For a world centering around cell phone use, not being able to save work-related photos taken on a work phone for business purposes is counter-productive. Our company has staff that travel all over the world and often take pictures of equipment, sites,etc. with their phone. This should be a no-brainer to have those photos automatically sync to OneDrive, just like all their other documents do.
