  1. Allow pages or docs (especially PDF's) to be saved from Safari or iBooks to OneDrive. Cannot see any way to do this at this time.

    No way with the iPhone to save documents or pages from the web or iBooks to OneDrive. This would be valuable for research compilation, reference sharing, etc. Evernote and Dropbox-like accessibility.

  2. Faster Thumbnails

    I'm a big fan of the camera roll upload feature of the one drive app. However, when scrolling through photos it takes a frustratingly long time for the thumbnails to load, and I spend a lot of time staring at blank squares. Having the ability to store thumbnails on the phone or to quickly download smaller-sized thumbnails would make file-browsing significantly easier.

  3. Progress bar during uploads

    Knowing how many files have been uploaded is helpful, but when you are uploading either many files of varying sizes or one large file - it would be more helpful to have a progress bar so I can try to estimate time remaining and be sure that the file is actually being uploaded.

  4. stuck at “setting things up” how could you be so stupid and irresponsible

    before the onedrive APP automatically upload the camera
    the onedrive APP will stupidly make clear the information of all the files in the whole onedrive(not only the files in the camera folder),and it will write the information in a database in the onedrive APP
    I have more than 100GB files in the onedrive.
    The consequence is the iOS onedrive APP cannot make clear the information of all the files. So it stuck at "Setting things up", and it has written more than 3GB date to the database aforementioned.
    and if you use an empty onedrive, you will find it can…

  5. Better editing

    I would like to have back the ability to make circles, draw straight lines to edit my PDFs like before the last update. The apps was perfect for the kind of work I do and not having to pay a LOT of money to do it. Like in my photo please please bring it back

  7. Fingerprint authentication

    Please make it stop! I have to sign in almost every single time I open the app. It is especially annoying with 2 factor authentication. Please let us use a PIN or even better Touch Auth for iOS (fingerprint).

  8. Offline access and sort by 'Custom' option

    Please
    1. Give an option in each file to be stored permanently on the device so that it can be viewed offline and need not to re-download it while online.Make this option as a toggle button on every file to switch between online-offline mode.
    2. Then include a sorting option based on online-offline files.
    3. Re-introduce the sort by 'Custom' option as earlier version.

    Thanks for listening and waiting to see these features rolled out real soon.

  9. Pinned folders

    Hi there, I have a good folder structure in one drive, one handy feature would be pinned or quick access folders on the app. There are some folders I frequently use that are deep into the structure, which is the layout I need, but being able to pin them for easy access on main screen would be great.

    Thanks.

  10. iOS 12 Shortcuts and Siri Shortcuts support for Onedrive

    currently with the final released version of iOS12 only 'iCloud Drive' and 'Dropbox' are supported cloud storage services.

    Please add Onedrive as a supported storage option for shortcuts (allows automatic 'save a file', 'get link', 'append file' etc).

    Thank you!

  11. "Go To Page No.***" for PDF files

    You DO have excellent PDF viewer and annotater, but it really misses the function to go to some particular page! Scrolling long files, repeatedly is embarrassing indeed!

  12. OneDrive on ISO - Annotating PDFs has changed...and now mark-ups look bad

    OneDrive has been my goto app for pdf annotations on the iPad. After the last update, though, the annotations menu has completely changed and making mark-ups is tricky (and ugly) - it's like OneDrive is not longer compatible with apple pencil. This diminishes the usability of the app by a lot!

  14. On this day

    Can we get an "On this day" feature in the app that will send a daily email or push notification of all photos on this day in prior years?

    I see the option on the site, but can't figure out how to get it to send a notification or email. I don't check the actual site every day, but usually check the app.

  15. “Delete empty Tags”

    Delete the empty tags. After deleting the useless (usually automatically generated) tags from my pics, they still exist under the tags tab. I need to delete the empty tags - the ones that have no pics assigned to them. The tagging system is useless if I can’t set it up with MY tags.

  18. Windows Explorer "Details" like look

    instead of a pile of icons or files in two columns how about getting an explorer/finder like view as we have known it from Windows and MacOS for ages already. Files , date of change, date of creation , type and size etc. would be visible in neat rows....resorting by name/date etc happens when tapping on the headers. Lets please put some order into the mess of files...

  20. Provide the availability to hide the message of "Got the application!" via iPad.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):iPad の "アプリを入手しました!" を非表示にする機能について

    Provide the availability to hide the message of "Got the application!" via iPad.


    ■Description(内容):
    iPad のブラウザーから Office 365 へサインインし、OneDrive for Business へアクセスすると、"アプリを入手しました!" とメッセージが表示される。
    OneDrive のアプリがインストールされている場合も表示されるため、メッセージを非表示に変更する機能を提供して欲しい。

    We are aware of the message "Got the application!" is automatically displayed when the user signs into Office 365 from the browser via iPad and access to OneDrive for Business. It also will be displayed even when OneDrive's app is installed, which makes the user confused. Thus, please provide the availability to hide this message freely.

    Thank you for your consideration.
