  1. Scan

    Scan Resolution

    I would be helpful to be able to SCAN and SAVE to pdf at low or high resolution to help limit size of file but also based on the appropriate need i.e. a lunch receipt for expense vs a detailed invoice for accounting.

  2. Please let me turn off "Relive some memories for this day"

    I’m getting too many notifications with OneDrive. I keep getting “Relive some memories from this day” on my iPhone. Curious that I don’t get this on my iPad. I know that I can turn off notifications for OneDrive in iOS but I want to be able to turn off this specific notification and have notifications on in case something important comes up in OneDrive.

  3. Add support for iOS Url Schemes for linking to the OneDrive app from other apps

    To build other apps that can link into the OneDrive app is really valuable. It would work perfect if you could implement the iOS Url Scheme so that you could link to the OneDrive app like this onedrive://folder/xxxx and onedrive://file/xxx

  5. Sync burst photos in iOS client.

    Currently on the primary image is synced which means many photos are being missed out on in burst shots. I suggest to sync all burst photos.

  6. Sorting

    When I open any folders or sub folders, I have to always keep changing the grid view and sort as per my requirement. My sorting is also in acceding order. So example we have files 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15. This is the proper sorting order but, in one drive it happens like the below

    1 10 12 13 14 15 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

    It has to be done in proper order and moreover in the main screen when I choose what sort and grid…

  7. .txt File Functionality

    Currently you can view notepad (.txt) files but you can't modify them. It would be great if you could modify them. I often use these files to take notes that don't take up much space and that will sync across my devices

  8. Photos

    I would love a dedicated OneDrive Photos App. Something like what Google did with its photos app.

  10. PDF Rotation

    Problem description: I frequently use Onedrive to read course readings, and they are often supplied in landscape orientation due to frequently being the results of scans from physical books. Thus makes them annoying to read and take notes because I have to alter my iPad's physical rotation between Onedrive and my notes app. Exporting the PDF into another app, rotating the file, and then exporting it back to Onedrive to reupload is a pain.

    Feature request: Please add a simple clockwise rotation button for PDF documents.

  12. Display file extension on iOS OneDrive app

    Show file extension as part of file name, not only on file detail (which for some reason does not work anyway). Without file extension, it is quite difficult (== impossible) to see which file is which if it has same name and icon is not known for both files.

    Following this (mistakenly resolved) idea: https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/6707554-display-full-file-names-within-the-ios-onedrive-ap

  13. Rename a file upon upload

    It would be nice to be able to rename a file as one uploads it, instead of uploading and then having to rename.

    It would save a step. Thanks!

  14. File Renaming

    This latest version of OneDrive for iPad has robbed users of the ability to rename a file or folder by just adjusting a character or number in the existing title. E.g. by adjusting a date or adding an additional letter. You now have to type out the new title in full every time.
    This is a retrograde step and will cause many users much frustration.

  15. Add vertical scrolling and bookmarks to pdf view

    I normally use the Documents app by Readdle for PDF viewing and annotation. Now that you have added PDF markup to OneDrive (for which I thank you!) if you added vertical scrolling as an option for viewing PDF's in the settings, and if you added support for bookmarks in PDF's, I could probably abandon the use of Documents by Readdle and switch over completely to OneDrive for most of my mobile PDF needs.

  16. No 'Clean up space' for iOS?

    The option to 'Clean up space' is not available on iOS, but it is available on Android. Any idea when this will be coming to iOS?

  17. Zoom out in photo to moment, month, year

    Zoom out on photo collection like on windows phone.
    I would like to be able to zoom out to month, place, year, etc.
    When you have several thousand photos it is impossible to use the app to find an old picture because it means an endless flipping.
    The iphone Photos way Collections is OK. But you can do better than that.

  18. Document editing

    Editing documents with apple pen with a recent update does not include the option of inserting arrows, text boxes, shapes. This was very useful, i do not understand why they would take it out of the app.

  19. Show Site Icons

    Our sharepoint sites all have custom icons/logos. Yes the onedrive app on iOS just shows green and pink squares.
    Any chance it can display the sites custom icon?

  20. iPad app redesign (my concept with pictures)

    the concept is mostly about visuals. i see OneDrive as a cloud, known for it's user-friendly simple and pretty interface, feature-rich apps and powerful productive tools.
