Enable Microsoft Office 365 Business/Organizational Accounts to be used with Microsoft Office Lens
When you use the office lens app you currently cannot use a microsoft account that is an organizational account. it says the account is not recognized.
Thanks, everyone, for taking the time to share your suggestions. We’d like to clarity, as some commenters have pointed out, that we do have AAD support for iOs today. Android and WP versions are in the works. Please stay tuned and keep your feedback coming!

Yikes! Just trying to get deeper into integrating 365 with smartphone and other devices and come across this problem...Would really like to see the business 365 account OneDrive, etc. available to Office Lens.

This app is severely limited without integration into my Office 365 Business account. Need it asap.
Is there a timeline when this will become available for Office 365 Business accounts? Makes no sense to only have integration with FREE Microsoft accounts currently. Should have been available for Business accounts first.

Can we have this ASAP please
Can't be too hard to do as it already works for home users

Many company are looking for a way to scan business card and transfer them to Exchange or at least in their contact. The Office Lens is doing that right thing but it could be way better if it was linked to a Office 365 account.

NEEDS TO SUPPORT BUSINESS USERS! An absolute MUST!

It is designed for business! Who has a white board at home ???

I can't fathom how this wasn't in from the start. Lens is one of the best "camera scanner" apps I've used, but I can't let our end users know about it because I don't want them setting up a separate Microsoft account apart from our Office365 accounts.
Absolutely crazy that this wasnt a core feature - they must of been on the liquor the night before. Vote up people!

And O365 users are the ones who are paying! Why should the free Live/Hotmail users get it first anyway?

3 votes for this one! Sometimes I wonder what Microsoft is thinking. I mean who do they think is going to use the Office Lens app the most? Office people most likely.
This should have been done from the start. What on earth was the thinking in linking it to personal accounts only. Wake up Microsoft.
When will Office Lens support Organizational Accounts? How many consumers with Microsoft accounts are really taking pictures of white boards?
The benefits that OfficeLens can bring to organizations are tremendous: on-the-road scanning and sharing with colleagues, OCR to make processing easy, reduce paper processing, etc.
I love it!
