  2. home screen undo/recover

    In the Home Screen panel mode (I.e., showing all screens) there needs to be an Undo should you mistakenly delete a screen - which I have done several times.

    if accidental delete of a home screen, and you don't have an up to the minute backup, you loose.

  6. Backup

    Full phone backup on OneDrive for business.
    We use Android with Microsoft Luncher in our company. Will be very handy to be able to backup the all phone (not only the Luncher) on a Office 365 account.

  9. 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.

  10. auto backup

    Company portal recently factory reset my device while in my pocket due to repeated unsuccessful unlocks. very painful process to restore my phone. msft launcher restored to a backup from 4 months ago. auto backup of settings would fix this.

  11. 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.

  12. 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

  15. 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).

  16. 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.

  18. Button to enable making back-ups automatically, as one never knows when a back-up is needed and it's one less thing to think about.

    With a simple button someone can enable or disable automatic back-ups of launcher data to their liking.

  20. 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.
