Reference ID: MC242827

MC242827 – Updated March 09, 2021: We have updated this post with a link to a blog post with additional detail. Thank you for your patience.

We are adding a bookmark that makes it easier for users of OneDrive mobile app for Android to return to a specific page in a PDF document and pick up where they left off.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 70547.

When this will happen

We will begin rolling this out to the Google Play Store in mid-March 2021 and expect to be complete by late March 2021.

How this will affect your organization

This bookmark feature allows end users to add or remove bookmarks using the bookmark icon.

You can add or remove bookmarks via the context menu in long-press gesture, whether the press is on text or in a non-text area.

Users can view bookmarked pages using thumbnail (grid view) mode.

What you need to do to prepare

You might want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
