  1. Save OS X tags for Mac files uploaded to OneDrive

    I tag my files on the Mac. To be more comfortable about using OneDrive for the long haul, I'd like to know I could always download files and they would have my original tags.
    Right now I have to tag files again after downloading. I'm not sure if tags from OneDrive download together within any file downloaded.

    In other words, integrate tags within file management for Mac users.

      • 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.

        • Enable form box editing in PDFs again please

          Since around 1 week I cannot edit a PDF that has forms included (blue boxes for text input, a signature field also). Before it was like this: When opening the PDF within onedrive, the pdf opened up with the forms appearing in transparent blue boxes, also the signature field appeard. Upon clicking a form box one could type the text inside. When clicking the signature box it was possible to sign the PDF.
          Since 1 week when opening the PDF, no more blue form boxes appear, as if it was disabled. I couldn't find any settings to enable the form…

          • Viewing of file names in OneDrive

            Problem:
            Not being able to see file names in full.

            There are two ways to view files in onedrive:
            1) icon view (not showing full file names or
            2) list view.
            List view will have a few columns depending on screen size or rotation (portrait / landscape).
            If in portrait it will give one column on a cell phone (not showing full file name), when turning to landscape it show two columns, still not showing full file names.

            It will be nice to have an option to choose how many columns you want to see on a screen in portrait…

              • 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.

                • Notifications

                  Hi I cannot find this feature anywhere so would like to suggest it as an addition.

                  Can we have the option to receive notification when someone downloads or uploads a file to a shared folder. This would be for folders with a full share and even those who are using a url to access stored files.

                  I use folders to distribute files too big to email to a number of recipients and I would love to know just when each of them has accessed the folder and if possible what files were accessed and what action was performed (download, upload,…

                  • "Empty Recycle Bin" Option on iOS

                    The only way now to empty anything in your recycle bin is by selecting each item (iOS at least). But, what if I want to delete the 2,000+ items in the recycle bin, all at once? You apparently can do this on web, but it doesn't work for me. Also, being able to more easily empty the recycle bin would save some server space, right? Every little BIT counts!

                    • 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.

                        • "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!

                                • Allow active photo sync

                                  Currently, the iOS app backs up a copy of each photo to OneDrive. It would be awesome if there was an option for an active sync which could also delete photos off of your OneDrive that you have deleted off of your phone. This way, you don't need to manage 2 separate photo libraries.

                                    • Select All button

                                      The app is great! But it will be better if there's a Select All button to select all items in one touch.

                                      Thanks.

                                      • Scan in black and white

                                        Love the new scan feature but is it possible to scan in grayscale? Colour is taking up a lot of space.

                                        • Apple Pencil

                                          Update the ink to be more precise with Apple Pencil please! It works well in Word and OneNote please improve for Onedrive PDF editor!
