  1. 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.

  2. Albums Offline

    I have 622, photos in an album, but when in the photo tab, and albums is selected, I cannot simply make entire album available for offline!

    I also cannot enter album and select pictures to be available offline!

    I must go and sort through the masses to have offline photos!

    Terrible!!!!!!

  3. 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

  5. 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…

  7. Microsoft DELETED the suggestion for returning to the previous Onedrive PDF annotation

    The post of over 1000 votes requesting that onedrive restore its original editing capabilities (notes, highlighter, pen layout, blue side toolbar) was deleted by Microsoft.

    There was a claim that the 'annotation experience' would be improved, but this never occurred.

    The app is still much worse than it was (went from a beautifully made app, to highly tedious to annotate PDFs).

  8. 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.

  10. Enhanced Audio File Features

    With the demise of the Groove Music Player for iOS, please consider supporting audio files (dare I say "music") in the app. For example play all audio in a given folder (rather than the current state that plays only one file and stops). Create a playlist of files. Create a smart playlist based on MY metadata or a search query. If I download the playlist locally, download the related audio files too. Respect Track Numbers so lesson files play sequentially.

  12. Multiple personal accounts

    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.

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

  14. Default folder view

    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?

    Thanks!

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

    ■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…

  16. Allow to open password protected excel files on phone. Dropbox has been doing this since the beginning

    I want to be able to easily open password protected excel files in Onedrive on my iPhone. I can't. I can easily do this in Dropbox and they have been doing it since the beginning!

  17. Sync the Entire Document Library in the iOS Mobile app

    Currently we can only sync files and subfolders in the iOS OneDrive app. I suggest to implement the feature that would allow users to mark entire document libraries to be marked for offline availability. The only workaround now is to create a folder at the root of the document library and put everything in there. This is an ugly and inconvenient solution.

  20. Automatic Offline Files and Folders

    Hi - PLEASE can you add in the function to make folders download offline or, even better, have an option in onedrive settings that will automatically download files for offline viewing and sync them across onedrive. This will make the app 10000000000000x more useful to anyone who uses a mobile device for working on the go. It is currently not productive to manually go through and download every single file in my onedrive account.
