  1. Set image / document file sizes

    Would it be useful to have the ability to choose the document size, say an A4 or A5 piece of paper which would then mean the PDF / Document output is the right size for re printing for example?

  3. Receipt organizer

    It would be great to capture a receipt and have it auto sorted into appropriate folders by using OCR.

  5. It won’t open my docs with Immersive Reader

    Since the update it is stuck in a cycle of my username and password when I try to open a document with immersive reader. I’m already logged in and it still works on OneNote and OneDrive so I think this is a glitch with just opening a doc with Immersive Reader

  6. Once the document or photo has been automatically selected it should snap image(this feature is Evernote scannable app)

    Once the image is detected it should automatically snap the image. Evernote scannable app currently has this feature which is fantastic.

  7. Save as black and white option

    An option to save as a monochrome image would be very useful. I find myself using Office Lens to scan single page documents but then I end up taking them into Genius Scan to resave as black and white. For many applications (eg scanning a newspaper article) colour images are way larger than they need to be.

  10. Share option in photos or PDF files sharing menus

    We indeed need to have Office Lens in sharing menus. For example it's not yet possible to "share / open in" from photos or any app working on image or odd files right to Office Lens. This would be a great addition in next update.

  13. Projector Mode

    Whiteboard mode usually works okay for slides presented on a projector, however I feel it could be better if it has it's own mode specifically optimized for images presented from a projector

  16. Work with personal ms email account

    If it works with my personal Microsoft email I can't login because it keeps telling me the account doesn't exist even after I reset the password to the account.

  19. A "Remove All" option on the Recent Uploads page.

    It would be nice to be able to clear all the recent upload files at once.
