  1. 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,…

  3. 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.

  5. Slideshow

    Is it possible to make a slideshow of my pictures in OneDrive? At the moment I need to download the pictures from my Onedrive app to my phone and then use another app to make a slideshow.

    It is important that the slideshow works with my Chromecast or Apple TV, so I can show the slideshow on my TV.

  9. 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.

  11. PDF annotation tool - NOT SOLVED

    Several months ago Microsoft changed the wonderful PDF annotation tool on Onedrive for iOS, to a new version that works very bad. A large group of people from industry and academy who use the iPAD with Onedrive got justifiably furious. At the following months Microsoft provided us with some minor fixes, and labeled this issue as "FIXED". No Microsoft, the issue is far from being fixed!

    Among the things that are still not fixed:
    -Eraser is too crude, it deletes too big of an area and not offering precise work as the previous tool offered. Moreover there is no outline…

  13. 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!

  15. 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).

  17. Please bring back the original markup tool for PDF’s in iOS. The new version 10.38.2 makes editing a pain

    The new version of onedrive has erased one of the best features for editing PDF’s. The older version of the Markup Tool made editing PDF’s much easier than what’s in place now. :(

    -Please bring it back

  18. Camera upload options

    I have multiple devices using one drive to upload their photos but they all end up in the same camera roll folder. An option for a separate sub folder for each device would be great. It will make it a lot easier to organise the family pictures.
    Also you could go further and do a separate folder for each month/ year. This would be good for the unorganised person, like myself who has over a thousand pictures to sort through.
