  2. Direct integration into Onenote

    Rather than having to swap between apps and wait for upload -download have lens functionality directly integrated into Onenote would be great.

  3. Saving files in specific folders

    I like uploading photos of receipts but would like an easier way to change the title and folder destination in OneDrive.

  4. Set image quality / resolution

    Set image quality / resolution

    When archiving receipts I don't need at 8Mpix 5MB Jpeg. It would be great to be able to choose image quality. I know I can do that if I email them, but I archive them in dropbox.

  5. Add OCR

    Add OCR, so whenever you export the picture, you can directly edit it, only if it is a document however.

  6. Zoom on crop

    Zoom with crop: would be nice if a zoom feature is added when draging corners to see where exactly it crops

    It will be good if we can attach multiple files in a single email.

  9. Detect white space and make it white instead of having a document scanned with a yellowish tint based on lighting

    When you take a picture of a white paper under yellow light the scan comes out with a yellow tint. Office lens should be able to automatically adjust for that and make the background white instead of yellow.

  12. Needs support for editing from within the default Photos iOS app using native "extensions" menu.

    So it is possible to edit documents without leaving built-in app.

  15. Pdf saved locally on device

    I love the app and try to recommend it to other folks. However, most of them do not have a one drive account and want to save to pdf. A great feature would be to allow the string of pdf on the device without needing a one drive account.

  19. Name and choose save location

    A consistent sequence after creating an image to indicate desired file type, name the file, and save the file to a selected location. I.e., just like we've done with computer files for decades!
