  1. 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.

      • Sorting Albums

        Please add the ability to sort albums by photo date taken on iOS & on OneDrive.com. Currently if you update an album by adding a photo or create a new album with a date taken from a previous time, it will only sort the day the album was updated. If this is done often, it can be very difficult to find an album on an iPhone & in my opinion the album view does not look good when dates from much older years are mixed in with current or almost current years. Thank you.

          • Undo

            Have an undo option. I accidentally moved a file and didn’t know which folder I had thrown it into. If there were an undo option, I could’ve used it to move the folder back. Thanks!

            • Multiple accounts sign-in

              Hi,

              Since I have multiple one drive accounts, I always wanted to access all of them through one drive app at the tip of my finger without signing out one and signing in the other and have hassle of switching from one to another...

              I recently updated and saw such message in the beginning when I loaded the app that said now access multiple accounts at the same time, I felt soooo good but when I tried signing in, it says only one personal account can be signed in..

              I donno what makes one account personal and the other work…

              • Camera upload options

                I have multiple devices using one drive to upload their photos but they all end up in the same camera roll folder. An option for a separate sub folder for each device would be great. It will make it a lot easier to organise the family pictures.
                Also you could go further and do a separate folder for each month/ year. This would be good for the unorganised person, like myself who has over a thousand pictures to sort through.

                • Offline

                  Make it so you can make a whole folder offline at once. Not just selecting files one by one it takes forever.

                  • Download and offline for complete photo albums

                    Enable simple, complete downloading a onedrice photo album to a local iPhone photo album or making it completely offline available in the onedrive app. NO more working on each individual file (thats nightmare for albums with many photos).

                    • make chromecast work on iOS devices

                      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.

                      • Month/Year

                        It would be awesome if when you click on the date in the Photos view, a calendar of some sort could come up. Here you could select a month and jump right to those pictures without having to use that clumsy scrollbar thing currently in place.

                        So many other apps are using the month/year and it would really enhance the user experience.

                        • 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.

                                Please add the ability to use multiple personal accounts in the iOS app at one time. This is a new useful feature I really like in the new Windows 10 OneDrive app. There are some files that I need to share the same master copy with my wife (we use the same photo library on my account) but I also would like the ability for her to have her own folders to keep her own personal files without needing to log in and out.

                                  I noticed with the new iOS update on the iPad, the editing toolbar in OneDrive has changed. The old one since it had many more functions. For example, in the pencil you could select more colors and you could pick as low as 0,5 for the tip (for the new the lowest is 1pt); you could also move around (and zoom ina and out) with two fingers even if you had the pencil selected, now it draws if you touch it any way. Also, before you could erase anything, as small as it was (now it erases everything around it…

                                  • Don't attempt to implement Dynamic Type (larger text) on iPhone/iPad.

                                    If Large Text is selected (via Settings/General/Accessability) this is poorly implemented on OneDrive, eg folder names beneath the folder icon (Files view). People with visual disabilities can Zoom the whole page. As mentioned elsewhere when folders are displayed with a sliver of a photo please can this be enlarged as per oneDrive v9.9 (v10 is a setback).

                                    • Long file names

                                      Hi, I have a lot of files wit long names and on this version of app, most of the file names are replaced with ... Which makes it really hard to see the files. Please change the behavior to show full names instead or add an option that will allow me to do that. Thanks

                                        If this is to be a serious contender with Apple photos then there needs to be some photo editing tools.
