  1. 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…

  2. Option to clear recent file list

    I don't understand why you don't offer an option to clear recent file list? Is that difficult? Thanks for your consideration.

  3. Return to Last Folder Viewed

    When quitting OneDrive app, it would be really nice to have an option (in the settings) that, when set, would return to the last folder viewed upon reopening the app.

    It would also be really nice if, when tapping "upload to OneDrive" the "select this folder" browser would start in the currently viewed folder instead of the root of the drive.

    I know for my daily usage, these would really help speed up and streamline my workflow (ex: Download a PDF --> put it in the right spot on OneDrive --> open in another app/on another device. Currently that middle…

  4. PDF annotation on Ipad Pro - Pen icon disappears

    The PDF annotation pen icon no longer appears in the blue task bar in OneDrive. If I log out and log back in to my account or delete and re-install the app, then the pencil icon appears again for a few minutes and then disappears again. Same for the equivalent feature when opening documents from OneDrive via the apple folder on the iPad Pro.

    As a result, I cannot reliably use the Apple Pencil to annotate PDFs.

    I know many users have been having a variety of problems with PDF annotations since the changes a few months ago, but have…

  8. 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.

  10. Clear cache button

    While the app is great, like many apps it has a habit of not properly clearing it's cache when your finished with it. A clear cache button to free up this space again would be helpful. Ideally the cache should never be bigger than about 15MB, mines currently at 80MB and I've only had it for 2 days. Probably wouldn't be that hard to do but would be very helpful

  11. 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

  13. OneDrive Camera Upload - Select photos to import in OneDrive

    Why can't I grant access to my photos (within the OneDrive app for iOS) for the Apple photos app WITHOUT automatically uploading all my photos to OneDrive?
    If you have thousands of photos in the Apple photos app, of which you only want to upload e.g. 10 photos to OneDrive and add them to an album, then it doesn't make sense that you first have to upload thousands of photos to OneDrive, which takes up a lot of space in OneDrive and causes gigabytes of traffic. It must be possible to disable the automatic upload of all photos, so that…

  14. 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,…

  15. OneDrive app on iOS changes photo filename upon upload

    Comment: Using my iPhone and the One Drive app. When I upload a photo to my OneDrive account from my iPhone using the One Drive app - the file is renamed from IMG5336 (as it is on my phone) to something like this - 20160618170407039iOS.jpg. However, when I upload a photo to OneDrive using the built-in photos app it will show up on OneDrive as IMG5336. Why does the OneDrive app rename the photos?

  16. Ability to create icon/shortcut to folder.

    I'm at a client company who needs to enable users to quickly access a folder in OneDrive with Important documents.
    The current approach of opening the OneDrive App and navigating to the content is not user friendly enough.
    Would love if I could create a shortcut on the home screen to open OneDrive to a specific folder.

  18. Select and send multiple files as attachment

    At present we can send only single file as attachment. If more than one file are selected, no option for send as attachment is available in sharing. Only option left is send as link and getting link message is displayed. But there are many organisations like banks where attachments through email are allowed but opening of link to onedrive is prohibited. In such cases, sending of multiple files by email though in same folder through iPhone is really frustrating. It would be great if onedrive allows selection and sending multiple files by email as Attachment not as link. I use…

  20. Thumbnail size

    Add support to add smaller thumbnail size for photos, because currently in iPhone 6 one row only consist of 2 photos which is a waste of space.

    or just add an option to change thumbnail size to big, small, etc.
