  1. Viewing of file names in OneDrive

    Problem:
    Not being able to see file names in full.

    There are two ways to view files in onedrive:
    1) icon view (not showing full file names or
    2) list view.
    List view will have a few columns depending on screen size or rotation (portrait / landscape).
    If in portrait it will give one column on a cell phone (not showing full file name), when turning to landscape it show two columns, still not showing full file names.

    It will be nice to have an option to choose how many columns you want to see on a screen in portrait…

  2. On this day

    Can we get an "On this day" feature in the app that will send a daily email or push notification of all photos on this day in prior years?

    I see the option on the site, but can't figure out how to get it to send a notification or email. I don't check the actual site every day, but usually check the app.

  4. 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.

  7. Windows Explorer "Details" like look

    instead of a pile of icons or files in two columns how about getting an explorer/finder like view as we have known it from Windows and MacOS for ages already. Files , date of change, date of creation , type and size etc. would be visible in neat rows....resorting by name/date etc happens when tapping on the headers. Lets please put some order into the mess of files...

  8. “Delete empty Tags”

    Delete the empty tags. After deleting the useless (usually automatically generated) tags from my pics, they still exist under the tags tab. I need to delete the empty tags - the ones that have no pics assigned to them. The tagging system is useless if I can’t set it up with MY tags.

  9. Photos tab option

    An option to be able to choose the folder from which to display photos when the photos tab is selected. Currently it displays all photos in one drive which makes it bloated with many items that don't matter

  10. Provide the availability to hide the message of "Got the application!" via iPad.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):iPad の "アプリを入手しました!" を非表示にする機能について

    Provide the availability to hide the message of "Got the application!" via iPad.


    ■Description(内容):
    iPad のブラウザーから Office 365 へサインインし、OneDrive for Business へアクセスすると、"アプリを入手しました!" とメッセージが表示される。
    OneDrive のアプリがインストールされている場合も表示されるため、メッセージを非表示に変更する機能を提供して欲しい。

    We are aware of the message "Got the application!" is automatically displayed when the user signs into Office 365 from the browser via iPad and access to OneDrive for Business. It also will be displayed even when OneDrive's app is installed, which makes the user confused. Thus, please provide the availability to hide this message freely.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  11. fix the markuptool and pdf handling when downloading to iOS or opening in other apps

    I noticed (and commented a android issue that was closed) so I will recreate this suggestion/observation again as this is a severe problem for my team

    When opening a PDF with annotations and other layers it seems that OneDrive flattens the annotations and makes other changes, Our workflow is now useless due to this problem. I MUST be able to open the original file in another app that has features the markuptool doesn't have. OneDrive essentially destroys my pdf's by flattening annotations and more before sending data to other apps, so opening them in another app or downloading makes no…

  12. "Shared with me" folder

    In my online browser version of onedrive for business, I have a folder called "shared with me." Almost all of the documents and folders I use are documents and folders that other people share with me. The "shared with me" folder doesn't exist in the Onedrive iOS app, and therefore I have no access through the app to the majority of my essential files. I hope you'll address this in the next release. Until resolved, the app is all but useless to me. Thanks!

    Drawing feature for Office app for iPad


    ■Description(内容):
    以前まで、iPad 用 Office アプリでは閲覧権限のファイルに対して描画を行い、変更内容を保存する時に新しくファイルを作ることで保存できたが、現在は閲覧権限の Office ファイルに対しては描画ができず、ファイルを複製してから描画を行う必要があり不便に感じているため、戻す機能を提供して欲しい。
    また、モバイル用アプリでは、いつ仕様変更が行われたのかなどの公開情報が乏しく、ロードマップ等に詳細を公開して欲しい。

    Previously in Office app for iPad, it was possible to draw a file with view permission and to save the file as a new one. However, currently users are not allowed to draw the view permission file directly. To do so, we must copy the file first and then make drawing to it.
    For improvement of usability, roll back the previous way and let users to draw the file and then make a copy file.
    In addition…

  15. Save OS X tags for Mac files uploaded to OneDrive

    I tag my files on the Mac. To be more comfortable about using OneDrive for the long haul, I'd like to know I could always download files and they would have my original tags.
    Right now I have to tag files again after downloading. I'm not sure if tags from OneDrive download together within any file downloaded.

    In other words, integrate tags within file management for Mac users.

  16. Add camera upload for onedrive for business

    Can you add support for the camera upload option for the iOS app to upload photos and video to the onedrive for business accounts. This way I can have a cloud backup so I can make more room on my phone for other apps I use.

  17. 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.

  18. Warn users about features about features that are about be removed.

    The way that almost every PDF-annotations was removed leaving just a few basic functions without any warning or mention of it in the update log is extremely frustrating (version 10.34.11 to 10.37.1 i think). I am in charge of assisting 30-40 people using OneDrive as its primary synchronization tool and up until the recent versions we have been using the built-in PDF-annotations tools extensively. When this feature was removed without any warning or mention in the update-log, we basically came to a standstill. There is currently no good way to edit PDFs without exporting and importing every single file. I…

  19. 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. Enable form box editing in PDFs again please

    Since around 1 week I cannot edit a PDF that has forms included (blue boxes for text input, a signature field also). Before it was like this: When opening the PDF within onedrive, the pdf opened up with the forms appearing in transparent blue boxes, also the signature field appeard. Upon clicking a form box one could type the text inside. When clicking the signature box it was possible to sign the PDF.
    Since 1 week when opening the PDF, no more blue form boxes appear, as if it was disabled. I couldn't find any settings to enable the form…
