How can we improve the OneDrive mobile app on iOS?

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

    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...

    I would suggest to allow user configure how long they want the pictures to stay, before deleting from iOS camera roll.
