  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. Add setting to hide the most recent photos bar

    I find the default to show most recent photos on a strip at the bottom of the screen to be SUPER ANNOYING as it occludes lots of the camera field. Please give me a setting to turn the recent photos strip off.

  3. Fix transfer bug

    When I try to upload some documents as a pdf to onedrive, it says ‘transferring’ with a loading wheel and doesn’t stop for weeks, only half my documents actually end up on onedrive!

  5. Remove that stupid pop up collapsable scroll bar of photos covering my screen when I’m taking pictures. forcing me to hide before every pic

    Whichever moron added this feature needs to be fired. Makes no sense to auto show in an app which it’s prime focus is to take pictures. Stupid. Hide that garbage by default

  6. Apply a default filter to the entire batch.

    I wish it had default filter setting that, if I set to B/W, always scanned and converted my entire batch to B/W. Currently, I have to apply filter one by one to each page in a 16 page pdf document—it’s tedious and annoying.
    Please add this feature.

  7. When in scanning mode, hide the bar with other pictures

    When in scanning mode, hide the bar with other pictures or make it a setting in settings.

    I cannot see all of my scan now when close to a picture.

  8. 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

  9. Take away the bar of photos from my gallery. This app is for scanning documents, not sharing photos. I have to constantly minimize the bar

    Add a setting so you can change the screen setup, like to avoid having the photo gallery bar in the way constantly while I’m trying to scan official documents for work. None of us need to see my puppy that often. I don’t remember this being a problem before.

  10. Files get stuck Transferring. Makes Ap useless

    Files constantly get Stuck in Transferring to onedrive. It Makes the ap useless and unreliable. No matter what other features if you loose your files in transferring it’s a Useless and Unreliable software. So many users have this problem and have moved away from office lens to other software products.

  14. In setting up this app it ask for permission to use the camera and then it went to the camera as if I was ready to scan. Sending feedback is

    In setting up the app it asked for permission to use the camera when you click OK it acts like you’re ready to scan a document. There’s no back button there there’s no X to click on, the only thing That worked was sending you feedback. So add a back button in case someone goes to scan by mistake. I’m hoping that when I finish this it Doesn’t just take me back to the scanner.

  15. Size of iOS App growing to several GB

    The size of the iPhone app is huge, in my case >2GB. Even after deleting all scanned documents, closing and re-opening the office lens app or rebooting the device (here iPhone 6s) the size of the app stays unchanged, i.e. >2GB. The only workaround I found was deleting the app completely from the phone and re-installing it again.
    I’m using the latest version of the office lens app that is available in the app store.
