  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  6. 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

  9. 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!

  10. Scans are stuck "waiting to transfer" even though connected to wifi, 4g, and msft account

    Even though i am connected to wifi, 4g, and msft account all scans never transfer. Internet access is good. Appears to be a major bug and I'm surprised it wasn't reported here as others have the same issue in the reviews.

    Display above the touch point a zoomed in view of where the cropping point is being placed. See scanner pro app for example.

  14. 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

  19. Remove page limit

    You can currently only append 10 images to each other in Lens. Please remove this limit. This would be good when you're trying to make PDFs.
