  2. Scan

    I like the new scan feature. It would be nice to be able to create multipage documents.

  3. Display options (single column list) for search results on iOS iPad

    Hi, love one drive and MS finally kicking the mobile device space.
    That said, would like an option to have a single column list (or details) view of search results. Sort function of results (by name, by last modified etc) would be nice also, but less important. Currently if search returns a large number of documents in onedrive the 2-column display in the iPad forces the file names to be truncated shorter, often leading to difficulty identifying the file you are after.

  4. Use current time for photo name when uploading

    Currently when onedrive uploads a photo from my iphone, it names the file with the current date and time. But the time is always in UTC +0 regardless of the phone timezone!
    The correct way should be to use time at the current timezone of the phone.
    This causes problems as for e.g. a user is at UTC +8 and takes a picture at 6:00am. The photo name would have the previous days date!

  5. OneDrive iOS App - Allow uploads to Shared Folder (used to be able to!)

    We have had OneDrive iOS App update to 6.13.1/6.13.3 - and now we can't upload from our Apple devices to a Shared Folder.

    This is crazy! Can view the files, but not upload to a Shared Folder.

  6. OneDrive Camera Upload - Select photos to import in OneDrive

    Why can't I grant access to my photos (within the OneDrive app for iOS) for the Apple photos app WITHOUT automatically uploading all my photos to OneDrive?
    If you have thousands of photos in the Apple photos app, of which you only want to upload e.g. 10 photos to OneDrive and add them to an album, then it doesn't make sense that you first have to upload thousands of photos to OneDrive, which takes up a lot of space in OneDrive and causes gigabytes of traffic. It must be possible to disable the automatic upload of all photos, so that…

  8. raw picture preview support

    Hello,

    I really enjoy the flexibility and speed of the Onedrive, the one functionality on the iOS devices I am missing though is support for previewing FUJIFILM's raw picture format *.raf .

    Kind regards,

    Daniel

  10. No bookmarks when reading PDF files

    Hi,

    When reading PDF files, you can't view the table of contents as there is no sidebar.

    It would be really good if One Drive have that function, allowing us to easily navigate especially when there are few hundred pages in a PDF file.

    Thank you.

  11. Ability to create icon/shortcut to folder.

    I'm at a client company who needs to enable users to quickly access a folder in OneDrive with Important documents.
    The current approach of opening the OneDrive App and navigating to the content is not user friendly enough.
    Would love if I could create a shortcut on the home screen to open OneDrive to a specific folder.

  12. Camera upload re-uploading previously uploaded images

    I was recently forced to erase my entire iPhone contents and restore my device from an iCloud backup. Upon restore, OneDrive treated all photos and videos I had previously backed up as new photos and began to auto upload them again. I disabled auto upload at this time.

    Why can't OneDrive recognize that these files have already been uploaded based on file name, date, size, or any other pieces of metadata? Or at least give me a bit more optionality about how to handle previously auto-uploaded content?

    Thanks,

    Steve

  14. Scanning into PNG

    I’d like to choose the format in which the scanned documents are saved. I use PNG so when OneDrive saves in PDF they’re useless to me and I have to use other applications.

  17. Upload on screen lock

    I wish it would upload in the background. It will only upload if I have the app open and screen unlocked on my iPhone.

  18. Clean up phone

    Will be great if there is an automatic tool to clean the phone photos when the phone storage is full and just to add a shortcut to one drive to access the old archived photos.

    Thanks
