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.
It is a real shame that this doesn't exist in the business offering, we are an Office 365 school and it would make lessons more seamless when our students need to take photos and videos.
Camera upload for OneDrive for business doesn't work - seriously?!?!?
This must be unlocked for business users - don't force people to use 2 accounts this is people's decision no Microsoft

The one drive business account should be able to backup photos to the account. Many people including myself have business related pictures constantly piling up and manually uploading them is super inefficient. Please consider this and get back to me.

One of the reasons I purchased the O365 subs is to run some photographic and graphic design workloads. I want to leverage this feature for my business - I don't get why this feature is only available to the "free" version and not the paid version. Makes no sense!
There is no doubt now that this needs to happen. With the new capability in Windows 10 Mobile that lets a user sign in with a work/schooll account and have everything be set up automatically, it is baffling that they would still need a Mcrosoft Account to sync photos and videos.
Why do you allow this for Personal and not Business. It seems odd that you would require my employees to get a personal account to auto sync photos. This is a major part of our business. Oh and why does sharing a link not supported in the Windows Phone (Lumia 1020)???
Camera upload Should be enabled for one drive for business. All of my iPad photos are work related and I would like too keep them with my enterprise storage for sharing with work partners
This should be implemented!
Business devices should not have the need or even be alowed to have a consumer onedrive account to upload photos and then have the extra work to transfer data from one to another.
We are evalutaing wether or not we should continue with dropbix sibscription or not. Not being able to automacially sync photos and videos to the business account is huge problem for us.
I love the automatic photo upload in the personal account. I'm also have a personal 365 business account. I would love to have the option to back my photos up to my personal OneDrive for Business instead of just the personal. Not having this option is probably the only reason I still use my personal account.
Please integrate this into the business onedrive as well. As an architect I need pictures to be synced as well.

Easy enough to fix. Allow us to extend our Onedrive (free version also required to use an windows phone) To an office 365 account. Where by we will get the storage we need and be able to use it whether it is Onedrive for Business or Ondrive.

Please allow to connect Camera roll in OneDrive for business for pro users
Why is not possible to redirect the backup photos from our Windows 10 phone to OneDrive for business? Our sales force are taking pictures every day and for legal reasons is important to save a backup in their OneDrive for business. Please think about it, try to add this funcionality. OneDrive personal is not the solution.
Mobile photos are an essential part of businesses today , most of the companies i support : lawyers , account managers etc. , use it everyday to save documents to their organization.
big reason for them to use google drive or dropbox and avoid commiting to OneDrive completely.
Please push if forward in development
We are a small business service company & rely heavily of sharing pictures amongst our techs. its really bizzare that you guys leave it out of OneDrive for business
Should be able to select which service you want it to apply to
It doesn't make sense to upgrade from Personal to Business and loose critical functionality. A lot of businesses have a need to upload photos from the field and make them available at the office.

Possibility to choose if smartphone will upload photos to OneDrive or OneDrive for Business. Often requested future for business customers. Available on all platforms (iOS, Android, Windows Phone).
This is one of the reasons our company doesn't make use of the OneDrive for Business accounts we have with our Office365 subscription - and instead we use Dropbox which will allow automatic photo upload. Microsoft could make itself so much more competitive if it both did this and scrapped the file count limits
