  1. QR Code Reader

    Please add a QR Code and Barcode Scanner that shows details about the item or for business cards since it is called "Office" lens and add more interoperability with the other "Office" apps. It doesn't necessarily need to capture the barcode or qr code too but can scan it then have the option to read barcodes in a picture. Also, please do fix the apps in Windows Phone. Don't forget. It really is a very important OS. It's just that people are still blinded by iOS and Android.

  2. Add a Receipt scanning mode

    Please add a receipt scanning mode, so I can scan the receipts of any purchases.

    You should process this new information, generating a table or something.

  3. Two sides business card support

    Many international business cards are two sided with different information on each side. It would be great to be able to capture both sides at once.

  7. Tag the photos and documents with key words for easy retrieval

    For organizational purpose it would be great to tag the documents with keywords and have folders within the app to organize. And when making documents it would be great to change the order in which the photos are combined to make documents

  8. Add Microsoft Flow integration to Office Lens

    Please add the option to trigger a flow after scanning a business card with Office Lens.

    This should enable scenario's where you can scan a Business Card and add it to outlook contacts, Dynamics CRM, SharePoint list etc. using Flow.

    Base on this idea, but a more generic approach: https://officelens.uservoice.com/forums/289714-office-lens-users/suggestions/11252925-add-a-direct-link-to-dynamics-crm-online-pleas

  13. Don't start the app with camera mode, but an overview page

    If you start the app, immediately the camera is activated. This is annoying. Would like the app to start with an overview page or scanned items.

  16. Export to SharePoint library

    Export directly to a sharepoint library. This would allow use of the document id feature which is not available in OneDrive

  17. Manually adjust focus area

    The option to manually adjust the focus area of the shot. The focus area tends to jump between area to area. Its hard to get perfect shot, this should help when doing either top of document or bottom. Possible options: Pre-set sizes for top of page and bottom, and full. Plus manual size adjustments pre-shoot. Less retakes!

  18. OCR not working?

    OCR is either not working or there is some step I am missing. I was under impression that One Lens auto-OCRs. I saved a doc to standard and PDF, and it can't find words in either.

  20. Have an option to make scans black and white

    When you scan a document to PDF it retains the doc colour, even on black and white docs you sometimes get a brown hue on the scan. I would like the option to change the scan to grey scale or black and white if i do not like the colour option. The whiteboard scan gives a great black and white scan
