  1. fix the markuptool and pdf handling when downloading to iOS or opening in other apps

    I noticed (and commented a android issue that was closed) so I will recreate this suggestion/observation again as this is a severe problem for my team

    When opening a PDF with annotations and other layers it seems that OneDrive flattens the annotations and makes other changes, Our workflow is now useless due to this problem. I MUST be able to open the original file in another app that has features the markuptool doesn't have. OneDrive essentially destroys my pdf's by flattening annotations and more before sending data to other apps, so opening them in another app or downloading makes no…

  3. Edit text files

    Hi MS.

    How about allowing us to edit simple text files in the OneDrive app (or in fx the Word app)?

    Kind regards,
    Mads Østerby

  4. "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!

  5. Free up Space

    Google Photos app on iOS has a free up space button that will automatically delete local copies of photos and videos after they have been successfully uploaded to Google Drive. I use OneDrive to backup my photos and videos from my phone. Would be great to have similar option in Onedrive app.

  6. selective camera upload

    turing on camera upload automatically uploads whatever is in the camera roll even if its a whatsapp image thats supposed not to be uploaded. so a selective camera upload for an album within phone would be really helpful

  7. Drawing feature for Office app for iPad

    Drawing feature for Office app for iPad


    ■Description(内容):
    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.
    In addition…

  8. Rename a file while saving to OneDrive

    So, here's my issue - why can't you rename a file when you are saving it to onedrive?? Box allows this and it is an awesome feature! Right now, when I save an attachment from outlook mobile, I go to save to one drive. Then, I open the app (after saving said file) and have to remember to immediately rename it. It would be so much better if I could skip this step and simply rename the file whilst saving it.

    Please let me know if this is currently possible, or if it will be incorporated in an update soon.

  9. Display folder paths in search results

    Would be great if you could display the folder paths in the search results. I sometimes keep many copies of the same file on one drive for backup purposes and when searching in the iOS app I can't see which file is in which folder from the search results.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. Warn users about features about features that are about be removed.

    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…

  16. Sorting of files

    When files names start with a number, the sorting is not done in numerical order. For example file starting with 10 or 100 is sorted to show after 1 rather than in Theo respective position. File starting with 10 should be after 9 and not after 1.

    Thanks.

  17. Sync the Entire Document Library in the iOS Mobile app

    Currently we can only sync files and subfolders in the iOS OneDrive app. I suggest to implement the feature that would allow users to mark entire document libraries to be marked for offline availability. The only workaround now is to create a folder at the root of the document library and put everything in there. This is an ugly and inconvenient solution.

  18. Slideshow

    Is it possible to make a slideshow of my pictures in OneDrive? At the moment I need to download the pictures from my Onedrive app to my phone and then use another app to make a slideshow.

    It is important that the slideshow works with my Chromecast or Apple TV, so I can show the slideshow on my TV.

    When I edit PDF file in the app, the Eraser is too wide, so I erase some contents I don’t intend to do so.
