How can we improve Office Lens?

Select onedrive folder

Would like to save to an existing Onedrive folder of my choice rather than default to Office Lens folder.

    So my choices are internal phone storage picture location or the pictures folder in onedrive and that's it? The lack of choice of location is unacceptable, particularly for business use and as both an enterprise and personal user of o365, I find this lack of attention to this issue egregious.

    Please use the official apps folder in OneDrive. So the storage location would be "apps/office lens" like in Win10 mobile.

    This would also reduce the permissions required for onedrive to the app specific folder only. More secure and easier to find the images afterwards.

    There are many more similar requests that if adds up gets more attention, this is a huge weekness for lens

    It no longer save to the office lens folder and it sucks. It saves my file in a format that I can't even open. What the hell is skydrive doc

    Definitely need this. Right now, on my Android device using Office Lens 16.0.9001.2117, they get uploaded along with all of my photos into my Camera Roll folder and I then have to go and find them.

    I'd much rather be able to have a different default folder location (that I can define in Settings), as well as the option to save into a different folder on a per capture basis.

    I would love to use Office lens to capture content to drive workflows. Would use Flow to trigger based on new content saved. Officelens cleans up images perfectly but the inability to select a folder prevents it from being used.

    For my LG G6 Android smartphone, documents are automatically saved to the Pictures folder on OneDrive. On my Windows 10 Mobile smartphone, documents are automatically saved to the Apps\Office Lens folder on OneDrive. So, inconsistent workflows.

    Allowing users to set the location of a folder on OneDrive when saving documents would be very useful.

    I've been using Office Lens for a while now and being able to select a folder in Onedrive is crucial. We need to be able to select a folder.

    Ho due accont onedrive. Inizialmente salvava su entrambi, come io settavo. Ora sil srvondo mi da errore di identificazione.

    One of the many small things, that totally ruin the user experience for power users in total.
    There has to be a variable already integrated somewhere in the code atm, why not make it available to us? Shouldnt be too hard..
    One of my top 3 complaints, makes automated and fast workflows much harder..

    I can never find the stuff I take photos of so I give up using Office Lens. To be able to save to a chosen location would it so much more practical and easier to use

    Be able to save file in a specific folder on OneDrive. I have to go in and move it wasting time.

    Most important to be able to select the OneDrive folder to be able to share with others

    Definitely must be allowed to choose a folder in one drive. Need to save to multiple folders different kind of documents
