  1. Change default save path

    Change the default save path for one drive. No way to change what directory it saves to right now and that is bad.

  3. Default destination

    Please allow for setting a default destination in the setting menu. Right now, there are too many steps to capture a document. Especially when capturing multiples.

  9. Select "Save to" in the beginning and keep taking photos

    Instead of selecting "Save to" location each an every time we take photos, we should be able to select the location first, just like selecting 'Document','Photo' or 'White board'. And then we can keep taking photos with out pausing to select save location.
    UI should be like,
    Camera (take photo)» Crop(make changes and save button)» Camera

    On the first screen itself we should be able to set scanning document type and storage location.

  10. Scan multiple pages please!

    When I need to scan multiple pages of the same document I have to use a different app. No good! Add scanning multiple pages as an option please.

  12. pdf or jpg fefaults

    Allow each scan type to be set to a default file type (pdf or jpg etc), which can be altered by user in settings. For example I want my 'documents' to save as pdf automatically, and my 'photos' to save as jpg. Another user might want to set different defaults in settings.

  14. Normalize the white balance to get decent white in any lighting condition

    Usually the background of documents is white, and lighting conditions indoors using tungsten lighting. Can officelens use a default to correct the white balance to to make all images taken have the same white as background colour?

  17. Ability to scan multiple pages/documents with an auto shot functionality and with built-in OCR

    Ability to scan multiple pages/documents with an auto shot functionality, no need to touch a button. It is also an advantage if it has a built in OCR (Optical character recognition) which recognizes text. You may also include the ability to import files from the gallery.

  18. On Android, list office lens as a camera available to other apps.

    Android needs a device wide camera scanner. Make Office Lens indispensable by making it available to all Android apps which call for a camera app. That would keep MS apps on all my Android devices.

  20. Multiple pages in file

    As according to the request of an anonymous user , the office lens team has done improvements to support multiple page file feature but it is only available in Windows phone.
    This feature has to be brought in android phone so that more users can have better experience with office lens.
    Hope you look into the matter and come to a best suited solution.
