  1. There is no way to handle several SharePoint calendars with an Android smartphone.

    Usually this should be possible with the outlook app. Instead because of any mysterious reason I can connect a lot of strange elements like Facebook calendar but not the own team calendar from SharePoint.

  2. Communication Site push to notification tray

    Hi we are running office 365 with sharepoint and I cannot work out how to get a push notification to my android notification tray. As an example I have a SharePoint communication site with three members and we all follow the site. We have the sharepoint app on our mobiles (android and IOS) and if any of us publishes a new news item a notification appears in the "News from Sites" folder in the app however we are not getting push notifications to the device notification tray. (Push notifications is enabled in the app.)
    Any advice would be gratefully received.

  4. PIN unlock with Fingerprint ID

    Having a fingerprint unlock feature (with app PIN set) would be good for good for business/enterprise account users. Features like SmartLock on Android devices could potentially leave business documents open to unauthorised access if the phone screen is not locked.

    Having a PIN with fingerprint access is just an additional security measure that I think most users would appreciate having.

  7. Change IM link to open the Teams app

    While using the SharePoint Mobile App for Android, if I click the IM option in the profile view it takes me to the Google Play store to install Skype for Business for Android. Given the push to have everyone move to Teams, it would make for sense for it to open the Teams app. Or at least have an option in the SharePoint app to choose which you would like to use.

  9. Quick Links to External Websites

    Up until the most recent release, Quick Links to external websites would open normally with the Android App. Since the last update users are presented with a blank screen. Please restore this functionality!

  10. I cannot upload files to the folders on mobile. This is very annoying.

    Allow photos and other files to be uploaded to the folders just like you can do on the desktop version of this same application

    I can't upload files to SharePoint using my smartphone or other mobile devices. Uploading files MUST be made MUCH easier.

    Android SharePoint Calendar needs to show Catagories, be color-coded and show attachments in view mode. It also needs the ability to select custom categories that have been added to the categories list.

  16. A desktop view that's identical to the computer.

    Navigation seems to be nonexistent on mobile, so instead of trying to fix it just let me see exactly what I see on my computer (like a desktop vs. mobile version of a website).

  18. Allow Sharepoint Attachments (photos) to be Viewed Without Downloading

    Our corporate policy does not permit downloading of attachments to users personal phones. We have a sharepoint list with photos attached. I'd like to be able to view the photos from within the sharepoint app. Right now I can only view the thumbnail. If I click the icon, I get a "policy restricted - cannot download" message.

  20. Improve UI for hub site navigation

    The UI for the SharePoint Online hub site/current site menu nav on mobile apps and browsers doesn't make it very clear where the primary nav is. I wonder if the default could be an expanded hub site nav and a better delineation between it and the current site nav in the mobile menu. It basically looks like your hub site link in the mobile menu (collapsed menu items) is a heading for the current site menu items. Also having the menu presentation consistent for Android/iOS apps and mobile browsers would be great (they're currently different).
