OneDrive on iOS

Welcome to the OneDrive UserVoice. This is your place to suggest the features you’d like to see us add to OneDrive. We have partnered with UserVoice, a third-party service and your use of the portal and your submission is subject to the UserVoice Terms of Service & Privacy Policy https://onedrive.uservoice.com/tos, including the license terms. Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos for which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft.

While we can’t guarantee any specific features or timelines, we will respond to every suggestion that gets at least 500 votes. Thanks for joining our community and helping improve OneDrive.

How can we improve the OneDrive mobile app on iOS?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Prompt to submit question after updating

    It allows you to type out a full explanation of your problem and try to submit then says that it isn't up to date and you should resubmit after updating, losing all of the work drafting that request. Check for updates first, or save the comment and ask if it should be submitted after updating. Deleting the comment seems like a ploy to frustrate users and minimize their complaints.

      • Chat window

        Dear developers, I have used the three main cloud platforms (Dropbox, drive, OneDrive) and have a tool in the first two that are useful and I do not see OneDrive: comment windows in files, organizer by comment as a chat window for shared files. A recent drive update has expanded to this tool that is already present in Dropbox. Best regards!

        • Bad Description in OneDrive

          The description in OneDrive is very bad on Smartphone.

          1 Picture: The best one is on IOS, because the date and ko are under the description

          2 Picture: this one is on iPad

          3 Picture: this one is on Android.

          • Remove info screen when returning from Word

            Could you please consider removing the info screen that comes up after working on a file in Word (Office) and returning to OneDrive. It gives no particularly useful info or options and is just annoying when you want to start working on another file.

                • Vista de elementos sin detalles

                  Que haya una vista de los elementos (carpetas y archivos) en la que no aparezcan detalles como la fecha, el tamaño y si el archivo es compartido, son detalles que no me interesa tener en pantalla todo el tiempo. En ocasiones no se logra ver el nombre completo de los archivos y no se pueden distinguir, (a menos que se ponga el dispositivo en orientación horizontal). Esta característica podría mejorar la estética de OneDrive.

                  • Remove auto folder creation

                    Please remove this option. Every time I open the app it automatically creates attachments and documents, which I delete every time. Why do you have to auto make folders for me? I like doing that myself.

                    • Restore OneDrive (iPad) PDF search and annotation features to previous version 10.34.2

                      The PDF search and annotation features within OneDrive (iPad) are now useless and should be wound back to version: 10.34.2. In this version you could select and see the tiles with the annotated pages within the document. Also, the search feature in this version was far superior as a pop-up page was displayed highlighting all the selected words within the document. I was told by Microsoft that this feature was returning in November 2018 however it still not available. Please fix this as soon as possible as my entire (large) organisation is counting on it.

                      • Multiple Business Accounts from the same Organization (iOS)

                        Currently only one account from an organization is allowed in OneDrive, Word, Excel, etc. for iOS. Please update OneDrive and the Office365 iOS apps to allow for multiple business accounts from the same organization.

                        • Hallo, ich vermisse in OneDrive (iOS) die Funktion „verschieben nach“ und „kopieren nach“. Wäre super, wenn diese Funktionen angeboten werde

                          Bitte verschieben nach und kopieren nach implementieren!!!

                          Sollte Standard sein, fehlt aber in den iOS Apps.

                          Danke und Grüße,

                          Robert Berner

                            ... should that say "to Upload"?

                                • ios の OneDrive アプリの共有時の動作について(On sharing behavior of iOS's OneDrive application)

                                  特定のユーザーを指定して外部と共有をした場合に、共有通知メールから当該アイテムを直接OneDriveアプリで開く機能の追加をお願いします。

                                  現状では、共有通知メールをタップし、ファイルを参照しようとすると、"OneDriveアプリで開けませんブラウザで開きますか?"というエラーが表示され、OneDriveアプリで参照できない。

                                  運用上、共有元、共有先外部はスマートフォンのOneDriveアプリを利用しています。
                                  OneDriveアプリ上だけで、共有から参照までを完結できるように改善をお願いします。

                                  When specifying a specific user and sharing it with the outside, please add the function to open the item directly from the share notification email with OneDrive application.

                                  Currently, when you tap the share notification e-mail and try to refer to the file, the error "Can not open with OneDrive application open in browser?" Is displayed and can not be referenced with OneDrive application.

                                  For operation, the share source and the outside of the sharer are using the OneDrive application of the smartphone.
                                  Improve it so that you can complete from sharing to reference only on…

                                    ***************
                                    ■Description(内容):
                                    OneDrive アプリ (バージョン 10.55) では、マークアップ ツールバーのペン機能を使用する際に、1 種類のペンの設定を切り替えて使用するため、編集する際に手間がかかる。
                                    改善要望としては、色や線の太さが異なる複数のペンのアイコンなどを用意しておき、編集時に異なるペンを切り替えて編集できる機能を搭載してほしい。

                                    In OneDrive app (version 10.55) Markup Tool, it is allowed to use only one pen and users have to switch the pen settings when editing.

                                    For improvement of usability, add multiple pens on the screen with different color or line thickness so that they can simply switch the pens when editing.

                                    Thank you for your consideration.

                                    • iOS版OneDrive上でマルチタスク機能を使用せずに2つのドキュメントもしくは画像の表示できる画面分割機能を追加していただきたいです。

                                      iPad上で2つのファイル(ドキュメント)を画面分割して同時に見るためには、マルチタスク機能を応用するしかなかったと思いますが、OneDrive自身が2つのファイルを同時表示できる機能が追加されれば、もっと簡単に2つのファイルを同時表示させることができ、2つのドキュメントの比較やスキャンした画像の比較ができ、仕事の効率がアップさせられます。

                                      • Scan to SharePoint

                                        Users access SharePoint Sites (Document Repositories) via the OneDrive App. The Scan icon is still center on the navigation bar which makes them think they can scan to SharePoint. However it still scans to their OD folders. Please configure so it will scan to the current location (including SharePoint Sites). This is useful for team collaboration.

                                        • Should be able to have more than one personal account in the App

                                          People might have more than one personal account on OneDrive or some people share Ipads and they have one personal account each. The way it is right now, none of ways is possible
