  1. Dictionary definition built-in

    The embedded dictionary definition function was removed. I really hope it could be brought back… Really beneficial for students

    • Quick link to annotations

      I could not quickly locate my annotated content in long journal articles and books now... It makes using these editing tools in OneDrive less desirable…
      Just add a view in the file with all annotated content like bookmarks so users could better manage the notes

      • Flexible editing toolbar position with user preference

        I don’t like the fact that highlighter/marker/note toolbar is on the top of the page. I often switch between highlighter and scrolling, ending up jumping back to the first page! This is very inconvenient for reading long essays and articles…
        I suggest that in the settings tab, users could choose whether they want editing toolbar on the top or the bottom. As for the pen styles, a pull down list could be arranged instead of a full length of color bar.

        • Open URL in Safari

          Currently URL files open the corresponding web page in a preview window. Please add a button that then opens that web site in Safari. Unfortunately iOS itself does not recognise URL files so it is up to Microsoft to solve the problem!

          • Groove Music within OneDrive app

            Since Groove Music got shut down, I’ve had to use the OneDrive app to play my music, but it is not very user friendly. For example, I have to tap the song I want to play and if I want to skip to the next song, I have to go back and change it. Could you find a way to integrate the layout and features of the Groove Music app into the OneDrive app? That was far easier to use.

              • Have the option in Smartphone app of selecting the folder where photos are uploaded...

                OneDrive APP for smartphone should have the folder selection option where to upload automatically your photo backups. Now, it upload your photos in a predefined folder. Let your users decide! At least, the possibility of deciding.

                • importing photos and documents from onedrive

                  as I reported before, I use Safe + which is a versatile password manager app for iPhone and iPad that also protects my documents and photos. I often import a document from onedrive, so I have it available when no internet connection at all is possible. since the update of the onedrive app, the Safe + app, nor any other app that requires access to onedrive, is not able to download a document or photo from onedrive that is passcode protected. It seams illogical to have to disable the passcode on onedrive on a smartphone to let the other app access…

                  • Frequent problems with iOS apps on iPad & iPhone for last 6 weeks

                    OneDrive support suggested I log this here: I use OD for both my business and personal account. I have had frequent problems with the iOS app with my personal account only, where I can view the folders and files (although not up to date when compared with my desktop (MacOS) sync or server via a browser). I can't however do anything else at all, nothing. If I log off I'm then unable to log back in. This is rendering what has been a fantastic app (for about two years) for managing my personal account practically useless.

                                • iOS app document scanner not getting full page

                                  Why does the document scanner so many times cut the bottom part of the page even if there is a good contrast between the page and the background and the scanner makes a full blue frame around?? Sometimes it takes me 10+ tries to finally get the letter page completely scanned. Very very annoying!!!

                                  Thank you!

                                    • More streamlined access to Site document folders via OneDrive iOS

                                      The Sites tab within OneDrive iOS is an efficient way to access Document libraries within O365 Groups and other SPO sites. How about streamlining even further so that clicking on a site takes the user directly to the contents of that site's Documents folder, rather than to the level above that (which in our experience usually contains only one relevant item - the Documents folder)? The goal is to help our mobile users reach a document in as few clicks as possible.

                                        • Search on my iPad App fails to find files which are definitely there - and are readily found in my MacBook - but I don't always have my Macb

                                          Fix search in the iPad App so it works comparably with Dropbox.

                                          At presently OneDrive App is failing to find files which readily show up in a search on my MacBook - but of course I don't always have my MacBook to hand.

                                          I'm currently migrating my cloud storage from Dropbox but Dropbox handled such search tasks perfectly.
