    • 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.

      • 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...

          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.

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

                • Favorites

                  I like the idea of a Favorites area that will jump to a specific folder in my OneDrive account. Could be down on the bottom bar next to Photos.

                  • Music Player

                    I want to be able to use OneDrive as a full-fledged music player. All that'd be needed is the ability to add folders to a 'music collection' section (similar to the photo album feature) and then add the ability to play tracks sequentially, shuffle, create playlists, add album art, etc.

                    I'd have no use for iTunes, or any music service apart from Pandora, if OneDrive had this feature.

                    • 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.

                        以前まで、iPad 用 Office アプリでは閲覧権限のファイルに対して描画を行い、変更内容を保存する時に新しくファイルを作ることで保存できたが、現在は閲覧権限の Office ファイルに対しては描画ができず、ファイルを複製してから描画を行う必要があり不便に感じているため、戻す機能を提供して欲しい。
                        また、モバイル用アプリでは、いつ仕様変更が行われたのかなどの公開情報が乏しく、ロードマップ等に詳細を公開して欲しい。

                        Previously in Office app for iPad, it was possible to draw a file with view permission and to save the file as a new one. However, currently users are not allowed to draw the view permission file directly. To do so, we must copy the file first and then make drawing to it.
                        For improvement of usability, roll back the previous way and let users to draw the file and then make a copy file.

                          • Recycle Bin

                            I think it would be useful to have a 'Delete all' and a 'Recover all' option in the recycle bin section.

                                It would be nice to at least view plaintext files like markdown. It be great to edit those.

                                  I moved to Onedrive to have all my photos available from any device. I also have Chromecast all over my house. However Apple devices do not have the abilty to Chromecast from Onedrive. This feature should definitely be added.

                                  • "Shared with me" folder

                                    In my online browser version of onedrive for business, I have a folder called "shared with me." Almost all of the documents and folders I use are documents and folders that other people share with me. The "shared with me" folder doesn't exist in the Onedrive iOS app, and therefore I have no access through the app to the majority of my essential files. I hope you'll address this in the next release. Until resolved, the app is all but useless to me. Thanks!

                                      The way that almost every PDF-annotations was removed leaving just a few basic functions without any warning or mention of it in the update log is extremely frustrating (version 10.34.11 to 10.37.1 i think). I am in charge of assisting 30-40 people using OneDrive as its primary synchronization tool and up until the recent versions we have been using the built-in PDF-annotations tools extensively. When this feature was removed without any warning or mention in the update-log, we basically came to a standstill. There is currently no good way to edit PDFs without exporting and importing every single file. I…

                                      • Add camera upload for onedrive for business

                                        Can you add support for the camera upload option for the iOS app to upload photos and video to the onedrive for business accounts. This way I can have a cloud backup so I can make more room on my phone for other apps I use.

                                        • 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!
