Selection of all files instead of selecting one by one on iOS
While moving files from one folder to another folder selecting all files instead of selecting one by one
This is something we’re planning to add to the app. No dates to share yet.
Previously somebody said :
“I don't think the reason is that they can't do it, but they don't want to do it! It is a way to prevent us from moving to another cloud service. I have been trying for days to download all my contents, but gave up multiple times because it is so arduous. I have automatic photo and video upload from my and my wife's phone to Onedrive and was thinking of switching to Amazon (I am already paying for it- Prime membership). They know even if I stop uploading to Onedrive, the existing contents will still be there and I will keep paying for it to prevent losing it! Bad customer service, but they are underestimating my resolve to get rid of them :)”
Good point, is Microsoft trying to mess around with us? When they are not gonna fix this within a few months I am gone. Hopefully everybody else to. Please look this has bin posted in 2015!!
Here exactly the same. I can’t understand they not introduce this straight away. So the developers are also spending 10minutes selecting a few holiday pictures. They should do some real work Instead
Hi there, I love everything about the app. The only problem is manual selection. Why can I not select multiple images at once? Or albums? I have to spend 10 minutes each time selecting hundreds of photos to upload. Would love to see this new feature soon!
It is amazing that it is 2019 now and such a modern app is lack of such feature. Where is the basic human right of Onedrive.

Being able to select all items in the recycle bin rather than having to select each one individually would be a real bonus.
Why are we still asking for this. im on android and cannot use the app to anage files since it only works well in windows. When is this fixed???

I recently needed the select all option to clear out the Camera Roll on my Windows Phone as I needed space. I have over a thousand pictures! It is something MS should implement asap.
very difficult to deal with it. all my picutres a duplicated and I believe due the large amount of date i´m been unble to use the delete duplicate apps ... so i´m trying to download it all and work on it offline. what would you suggest? we i have 30k picutes.
The user has limited options. I cannot erase all pictures. All other cloud apps that I use, are intuitive.
Normally one has to right click on the folder and then press delete. Simple. But not here unfortunately.

Please add this feature!! It's so important!
I’m very disappointed that there isn’t a ‘select all’ feature for iOS. I have thousands of pictures to delete and doing them one by one will take extra time that I don’t have. I hope you consider making this change as soon as possible
need to be able to select all photos at once or many at a time.
This is a must requirement to maintain albums efficiently
For iOS: Change the view to a grid instead of a list. Press and hold the file you wish to move and when you release, all files should have a selection icon in the corner. You should then be able to select multiple files, hit the 3-dot icon in the top right corner of the OneDrive App and select "Move", then click through your options to get to the folder you wish to move your files to and click "Move" once more, then you're done!
Please fix it
why such an important function nobody cares?
it's highly valuable and convenient for users!
PLEASE FIX IT !!

Thanks to the new AI feature where I can see pics sorted by food, animals, sunset, screenshots, etc.
I can sort all "screenshots" I want to be able to "select all" of them and delete.
right now we can only select one at a time

Not certain this would work for iOS but when at a desktop:
If you change the "View" option of the folder containing the folders you want to move to view as "Tiles" then you can choose all those that you want to move by clicking the upper right corner of the folders you want and then choose "Move" and choose to which library on the right side of the screen. I literally just did this and it worked fine. Be sure your timeout settings don't limit your capability. Hope this helps.
