  2. Bring back old editing toolbar

    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…

  3. 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.

  4. Image rotation

    It would be really awesome if we had a button that would allow us to rotate a picture left or right

  5. Automatic photo upload to OneDrive

    Currently, OneDrive for iOS does not automatically upload photos in the background. To upload photos to OneDrive for iOS you have to open OneDrive, the it starts to upload photos and videos.

    On the next version of OneDrive for iOS please give automatically upload photos and video to OneDrive without opening the app.

  6. Support iWork files

    If I copy files created by Apple's Numbers, Pages, and Keynote applications to my OneDrive using my Mac, they show up as folders in the OneDrive web interface and OneDrive iOS app. As a result, I can't open them at all on iOS.

  9. Show extensions

    The main app interface needs an option to turn on extensions. I have a folder right now with over 20 files named test and they each are different programming languages and I can’t tell them apart without the extension. I know you can click on details or open the file within the app but it’s a major hassle when needing one fast

  10. Search photo tags

    OneDrive already automatically scans and tags pictures (e.g. "Horse", "Vehicle", etc.) in our account through image recognition. Why not allow us to find out photos easily in the OneDrive app by allowing us to search these tags, and personal tags that we have added ourselves. Thanks.

  11. Photo Editing in OneDrive

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

    Any way to set up a default folder view that applies to all folders? And if change the view for a particular folder, then remember such?

  13. Allow us to keep using the features available in previous version of markup tool

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    モバイル版 OneDriveアプリのアップデートによるマークアップ機能の変更を戻してほしい

    Allow us to keep using the features available in previous version of markup tool


    ■Description(内容):
    モバイル版の OneDrive アプリを最新バージョンにアップデートした結果、PDF のマークアップに関する機能が一部使えなくなってしまった。
    以前はノート注釈機能で星形や×マーク、矢印マークなど選択できたが、現在は吹き出しのみ。
    また、直線を引く機能なども使用していたが、最新バージョンの更新に伴い使用できなくなってしまった。
    以前のマークアップ機能より機能が大幅に制限されたため、以前の機能がそのまま引き続き使用できるようにお願いいたします。
    最新バージョン:10.39.8

    As a result of updating the OneDrive mobile app to the latest version (10.39.8), some features to markup a PDF became unusable.
    Previously, it is possible to select star, arrows and so on by using note annotation feature, but now we can only select callout. Also, we are not able to put straight lines too.

    We feel the inconvenience that the markup tool features were significantly restricted than the previous version,…

  14. Search function in shared folders

    please enable ondrive search in shared folders at the ios app, or let the search field disappear as soon as you are in a shared folder. From the user's point of view, the current solution is very misleading and not intuitive.

  16. 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…

  17. Fix the PDF annotation interface

    The old versions had a much better interface for annotating PDF files, there was the option to add text and shapes as an annotation and there was also a wide selection of colors to choose from when using a pencil or highlighter. The old interface even looked more modern and elegant and matched the blue theme of the app plus it was movable. This new interface looks bad, does not move around, has very limited options and an extremely narrow selection of colors.
