  1. Bring the chromecast support from Android to IOS

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. "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!

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. "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!

  11. 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…

  14. "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!

  15. 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,…

  17. 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.

  18. “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.

  19. 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.
