  1. Default Filter Setting

    Have option to default filter of choice instead of always set to Auto. When scanning a multi page doc, I have to apply the b/w filter after every page.

  2. Border sensing poor in version 2.45

    Prior versions were great at automatically detecting and cropping to page borders. This version mucks it up every time, and I need to manually adjust every scan.

  4. Return the ability to import already existing photos

    Previous versions of a Office Lens allowed you to import photos from the iPhone photo library. This new version seems to have deleted the functionality. Please return the functionality.

  5. When using the date as most of the file name, don't autofill with last week's name!

    On android the name gets automatically filled with today’s date and office lens. On iOS the name gets automatically filled with whatever file you used last time you saved. This is incredibly annoying because if you want To use the date you have to delete the title then go back, Then hit down again so that it will fill the now blank title with the current date. I cannot think of a workflow in which I wish to use a title from two weeks ago or manually enter a full date time string. Look at how it works on the…

  6. Share to outlook in PDF form

    It seems like when I scan a document and select to share with outlook app, it only does it as a jpg. Any chance this could go as a PDF also? Thanks

  7. Take the changes back

    It was once a very good scanning app but recent changes made impossible to use. I have to re-crop 9 out of10. It focuses on lines but it must focus on colors instead. Because we put the document on a dark or light background so that the apps can automatically scan. Please take those in to account and make this app great again!

  8. Auto filter function

    Please add an auto filter function, it’s quite troublesome that I have to choose the filter for each photo.
    If there is function like that, I can pre-set a preferred filter and apply it to all photos, it would be convenient.

  10. Foto gelijk omzetten in pdf die kan worden voorgelezen op de iphone

    Als je een foto maakt van een tekst kun je het opslaan als een plaatjes pdf. Echter de tekst wordt dan niet voorgelezen op de iPhone. Dan moet je de pdf eerst weer bewerken met een andere app. Zou wel handig zijn als het 1 keer kan.

  13. iOS version Files integration

    Please add an option to use the Files App from iOS, so we can save files on internal storage in folders that we can interact, it would be perfect to have the function so I can attach my documents to Emails and messages

  15. Fix title bug

    Title for new scans always use old time stamp. Office Lens used to use fresh time stamp with each scan.

    Better yet, let users set default title format with time, date and sequence numbers being available e.g. “Larry’s receipt %MM/%DD/%YYYY, %hh-%mm-%ss %nnn”

  17. Make Default Scan Title the Current Date

    When I use office lens, it used to be where the default file name would be the current date and time. However, after using for some time, it stopped doing that and the default name for PDF's that are exported are now what the name for the previous documents are. In order to get it to be the current date, I have to clear the Title every time then export as PDF to get current date. Can this be fixed so the title every time is the current date and time?

  18. Stuck in login loop

    Stuck in an endless login loop trying to upload files. Have removed accounts, reinstalled the app, but alas it will just pop to Authenticator, pops right back with no token, and Office Lens asks for your login, rinse repeat.

    Unbelievable...

  19. Pages’ orientation shifted after being exported to PDF

    I would like to report that the orientation for some of the pages are off my some degrees in the exported PDF.

    This bug has been bothering me for almost a year. I always review my document before exporting but somehow some pages are rotated every time.

    This problem disappears if I export it as images but that causes tons of extra work and is apparently not the long term solution.

    Please fix this. Thanks for the attention.

  20. Export PDF to Google Drive and Facebook Messenger

    It be great if you could export as PDF to google drive and FB Messenger as it only exports photos at the moment to those targets....
    Yes you can save local and share but direct export would be great.
