If picture is backed up and older than a week, delete it from IOS camera roll
To save space is the purpose of backups, so if a photo is backed up and older than X, delete it from camera roll
Great suggestion and something we’re looking into.

OK as long as I can turn this behaviour off. I use OneDrive for photo backups while traveling (more than a week) and I don't want photos deleted from the Camera Roll until I upload them to my Mac via USB when I get home. Also, the OneDrive backups are unfortunately converted to JPG by IOS even if I choose to use HEIC.
Google Photos has a Option to delete photos after upload to the cloud. Awesome feature. This feature prevent duplicate photos on the device and the cloud. Please implement. Just have a look on google photos. The reason why I use still google for my photo archive.

I agree with the comments. Cool idea, but needs to be an option setting. I personally want this turned on, but can imagine it freaking people out if automatically happening. Some sort of this feature needs to be an option though, because you do spend a lot of time letting OneDrive backup the photos and then still managing the iPhone photos.
Can I vote against this?
In effect it turns a "Backup" into "Sole storage". Backup should be a 2nd (or more) security copy. NOT a move to offline.
If anything along these lines is implemented it needs 101 user warning messages
OK so long as the user is able to select this option and it does not happen automatically.
I much prefer to be in control and know what is happening to photos on my Camera Roll and on One Drive.
I'm voting for that, assuming that once done, there will be an equal feature also added to the Androind app :)

Is just sad that there're such good ideas here and years goes by and nothing of this is implemented in the OneDrive for iOS... The concept of delete the pics from the iPhone that are already backup in the Cloud already exist in Google Photos for months. I don't know what is MS waiting for...

This would be excellent!
This is possible with Dropbox Carousel. Please add to OneDrive.
that would be a cool feature.

Check this out, the onedrive app does not fully backup your photos! IT´S A BUG! Please vote for them to fix it fast!
I would suggest to allow user configure how long they want the pictures to stay, before deleting from iOS camera roll.

Note: IOS 8.1 api allows the app to delete a photo from the camera roll
