      • Support photo libraries in OneDrive

        When accessing files in the SharePoint mobile app, it opens OneDrive and displays the file. However, when you try to access a photo library in SharePoint, it opens OneSrive and nothing happens. It seems like photo libraries aren't supported in OneDrive.

            • Featured Links - icons in SharePoint Apps should be customizable.

              Right now the icons displayed under Featured Links in the SharePoint App are fixed. It would be nice if we can upload/use our own picture instead of the globe.

                  • Different views in library

                    In our portal we assigned common properties (tags) to each of the files uploaded to SharePoint document library. We have grouped them.
                    Is it possible to show the different views. For example: Allows for filtering, grouping, sorting of documents based on their properties.

                    • "Followed Sites" funktion should work for restored Site Collections with same Site IDs

                      With SharePoint 2013 on premise it is possible restore site collections out of a site collection backup (restore-SPSite). For those Site Collections the “Follow” Feature works perfect within the browser although all Site Collections have the same unique Site Collection ID.

                      Please change the “Followed Sites” Feature in the iOS app so it will work like within the browser.
                      At the moment we can’t use the iOS App because of our backup/restore rollout approach for new Site Collections. The app shows only one entry although I’m following several Site Colelctions.
                      My assumption is that within the App the Site Collection…

                      • No shared files visible

                        Through the SharePoint app and once it kicks over to the OneDrive app there is no way to see files that have been shared with a SharePoint team site or a group. I need to be able to see these files somehow.

                              • Branded sites are rendered as unbranded in mobile app

                                We have a heavily branded/customized/responsive intranet portal (On-Prem SharePoint 2013). When accessed via the iOS app, the branding is stripped away, and users are presented with the standard SharePoint mobile look. This is not desirable. It would be great if there was a way to configure the site so that it could only be accessed by a browser, or rendered via a browser within the mobile app.

                                      • Doesn't work when published through Web Application Proxy

                                        The OnPrem side of things doesn't seem to work when the site is published through WAP, giving an error of not being able to determine the authentication. This unfortunately renders the app useless to our organisation. Disappointing first release that lacks features and looks like it was rushed out the door.
