  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. 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.

  3. 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,…

  5. 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.

  6. Sort photos by date taken

    I noticed that I am not able to sort the photos ascending or descending in order of three date they were taken, right now it just sorts them in the order they were uploaded which is annoying when you upload old photos from another device.

  7. Sorting of files

    When files names start with a number, the sorting is not done in numerical order. For example file starting with 10 or 100 is sorted to show after 1 rather than in Theo respective position. File starting with 10 should be after 9 and not after 1.

    Thanks.

  8. 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.

  10. Pinned folders

    Hi there, I have a good folder structure in one drive, one handy feature would be pinned or quick access folders on the app. There are some folders I frequently use that are deep into the structure, which is the layout I need, but being able to pin them for easy access on main screen would be great.

    Thanks.

  12. Live photos support please

    It's been years & yet there's still no support for Live Photos. Google has done it, why can't Microsoft?

  13. iOS 12 Shortcuts and Siri Shortcuts support for Onedrive

    currently with the final released version of iOS12 only 'iCloud Drive' and 'Dropbox' are supported cloud storage services.

    Please add Onedrive as a supported storage option for shortcuts (allows automatic 'save a file', 'get link', 'append file' etc).

    Thank you!

  18. Don't attempt to implement Dynamic Type (larger text) on iPhone/iPad.

    If Large Text is selected (via Settings/General/Accessability) this is poorly implemented on OneDrive, eg folder names beneath the folder icon (Files view). People with visual disabilities can Zoom the whole page. As mentioned elsewhere when folders are displayed with a sliver of a photo please can this be enlarged as per oneDrive v9.9 (v10 is a setback).

  20. Select All button

    The app is great! But it will be better if there's a Select All button to select all items in one touch.
