  2. 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.

  4. Quick Access to Favorites or Recent Folders, 3D Touch

    It would be nice to have a favorites or recent folders option. Not sure if this should sync in any way to recently visited folders from all devices but end goal would be to have a quick way to access some sub folders instead of drilling down from the top directory every time. Maybe a swipe left or right on the main screen to get to folders or files you recently or frequently access and tagged/marked them as such.

    For those iOS devices that support the additional 3D touch functionality you could also have favorites listed there. Press and hold…

  6. Allow us to change width of Eraser when I edit PDF files in OneDrive app

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive アプリから開いた PDF ファイルの動作について
    Allow us to change width of Eraser when I edit PDF files in OneDrive app


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive アプリから PDF ファイルを開き編集をする場合、消しゴムを使用した際に範囲が大きすぎて意図しない文字を消してしまう。
    消しゴムの範囲を小さくするか消しゴムの範囲を変更できるように修正お願いします。

    I would like to see the feature to change width of Eraser, or to have smaller Eraser in OneDrive app.
    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.

  7. 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,…

  11. Duplicate file finder

    Could you please include a feature to identify any duplicate photographs stored in the OneDrive. Then allow a user to select which copy they would like to keep and which to delete. I know I could easily do this through a computer by downloading all of the contents and hashing all of the files file duplicate hashes but it will require a considerable amount of storage to do so.
    Thanks

  16. Search from iOS Files app

    With the iOS Files app integration in version 10.1, documents stored in OneDrive can be browsed or opened from other apps. But either in the Files app itself or in other apps with the open-file dialog, searching does not return any results from OneDrive and users have to manually navigate through the folders to find the files and this is extremely cumbersome. Other major cloud storage providers like Google drive and Dropbox all support the search feature in Files app.

  18. 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…

  20. 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
