  1. Backup

    Avec tous ces Tools, Android deviens presque utilisable. Mais serait il possible d'avoir un outil de sauvegarde du téléphone.
    Parce que les personnes comme moi(pas de connexion chez Google) ne peuvent plus sauvegarder leurs téléphones. Et c'est très pénalisant.

  4. Device backup

    I run MS Launcher on multiple devices. I would like the backup to distinguish between them instead of a global app backup because the devices do not have the same apps (e. g. a tablet v. a phone).

  5. rename backups

    have multiple devices using the launcher, would be good to be able to rename a backup so next time when restoring it is easy to pick up the right one.

  7. Should be able to rename the launcher backups so users can restore different Android phones with different variants among them.

  8. name backup during save

    When saving backup, there should be a place in sequence to give it a name. I don't care when backup was done. I make many different themes and like to switch between them every so often. In order to give them descriptive name I have to open OneDrive and manually re-name it. Would be much easier if naming backup happened during process.
    A name for auto backups could add suffix of date and time to a descriptive name entered at time of first backup.
    Thank you.

  9. Layout Backup

    I wish you guys get the Layout Backup more expanded,like copy\pasting the Screen Layout from another launcher the user had used,before coming to use this one,it seems this launcher has a lot of functions regarding 'home screen customization',and i believe you guys can make it better.

  10. Backup names should be editable so I know which ones for which phones (Samsung, Sony, LG etc) in case users have different Android phones.

    Backup and restore Microsoft Launcher for different Android phones which are slightly different due to built-in apps from manufacturers

  11. app icons when restoring

    on a new phone for example, I want to install the Microsoft Launcher first and when I restore the backup it shows all app icons even if the app is not installed. If I touch the app icon and it's not installed the Microsoft Launcher installs automatically (If possible) or open the Play Store on the app page so the user can tap the install button.

    The idea is on a new phone, when I restore the Microsoft Launcher backup I have my icons organized like it was before.

  12. Named backups. Would help greatly when using multiple devices.

    I have at least 10 android devices. Most are using MS Launcher. I cannot tell one backup from another. Nova Launcher has the ability to name backups and store them in different folders.

  18. Usability of log processes like settings backup is vital when dealing with UI apps, which should help users with life.

    Usual to Microsoft programs is progess bar - it tries to show that its going fast, but stops at 100% and makes you lose a lot of time that way. It should be done in opposite way - to logarithmically show slower progress, but then surprise user with fast finish.

    Control and state of backup of settings is non-existent here, which pains in otherwise very well-configurable app.
