Once upon a time, OneDrive app featured the ability to, at intervals, delete files on your phone that have already been uploaded to OneDrive. This was fantastic as, obviously, that's half the point of the app. Clear up space on the local device.

 

That said, I just noticed that my phone is near capacity, and a quick look on OneDrive shows that the "Clean up space on your device" option is missing from the Android app, as it is suggested to use here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/clean-up-space-on-your-android-device-with-onedrive-cabb8... 

 

This functionality is crucial, and needs to return.

This definitely needs to return. It should've never been removed in the first place. Big step backwards in functionality.
