  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. Scan

    Scan Resolution

    I would be helpful to be able to SCAN and SAVE to pdf at low or high resolution to help limit size of file but also based on the appropriate need i.e. a lunch receipt for expense vs a detailed invoice for accounting.

  6. Selection Options

    Users should be able to select every picture in one action instead of selecting every photo individually.

  7. Live photos support please

    It's been years & yet there's still no support for Live Photos. Google has done it, why can't Microsoft?

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. iOS 12 Shortcuts and Siri Shortcuts support for Onedrive

    currently with the final released version of iOS12 only 'iCloud Drive' and 'Dropbox' are supported cloud storage services.

    Please add Onedrive as a supported storage option for shortcuts (allows automatic 'save a file', 'get link', 'append file' etc).

    Thank you!

  15. Restore Annotation of PDF Files

    Not sure what prompted the developers to eliminate the ability to annotate PDF files within OneDrive but BIG mistake. Renders OneDrive almost useless to me now. Please restore this ability

  16. PDF annotation tool - NOT SOLVED

    Several months ago Microsoft changed the wonderful PDF annotation tool on Onedrive for iOS, to a new version that works very bad. A large group of people from industry and academy who use the iPAD with Onedrive got justifiably furious. At the following months Microsoft provided us with some minor fixes, and labeled this issue as "FIXED". No Microsoft, the issue is far from being fixed!

    Among the things that are still not fixed:
    -Eraser is too crude, it deletes too big of an area and not offering precise work as the previous tool offered. Moreover there is no outline…

  17. Sort photos by date taken

    I noticed that I am not able to sort the photos ascending or descending in order of three date they were taken, right now it just sorts them in the order they were uploaded which is annoying when you upload old photos from another device.

  18. 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).

  20. 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.
