  1. Revert the pivot menu UI for WP

    The WP update v4.4 (27/10/14) has brought with it a new UI and menu system that is totally at odds with the Metro design language. The Android-style menu goes completely against the grain of the simple, elegant and clean pivot menu that it replaced. Please revert it back.

    The addition of the big blue bar across the top is distracting. The mini icons, hamburger and oddly placed search have together created a less fluid design, that lacks cohesion. Please bring back the proper pivot menu.

    • Allow folders to be synced without moving them to the OneDrive folder on your PC

      If I want to sync stuff to the cloud I have to move it physically to the OneDrive folder. It would be great for backup purposes if you could manually choose which folders on your PC you would like to backup instead of being forced to move them physically to the OneDrive folder on your PC.

      • Host an AMA Session on Reddit Sysadmin

        It would great if you could host an AMA on Reddit Sysadmin so that the community knows the direction of where OneDrive for Business is going and the issues that are acknowledged.

        There are so many of us that that desperately want OneDrive to be a great product and by hosting an AMA, you can inform a large community on the direction.

        • Sync shared folders (that I don't own) to the desktop

          • Request that someone sends a file to me

            I (and my users) often need to request large files from a contact outside my organization, but Office 365 and OneDrive do not provide this functionality in a simple way. Microsoft support tells me to “either create a shared Sharepoint site or ask the other party to upload files to their own OneDrive and share the file”. Both of these “solutions” require the other party to have a Microsoft ID and force me into the awkward position of being a Microsoft evangelist (as I tell them how to get a Microsoft ID, upload the file, and then share it with…

            • add seperate folders for each device backing up to the camera roll

              If you have multiple devices that would take advantage of the camera roll there should be an option to put them in separate folders. IE if you have an android phone, ipad, etc each device should be given the opportunity to use a subfolder (Camera roll\ipad and Camera roll\android)

              • Integrate with History File

                Windows 8/8.1 supports File History which allows you to see all previous versions of files on your folders, which is specially useful for a little in loco version control when dealing with projects that has many changing files.

                But currently this feature requires another disk drive or a network drive.

                Windows could automatically use OneDrive to store those files for each account, and present them to the user, downloading the previous versions as needed (similar on how OneDrive currently works on 8.1)

                • Allow sharing files and folders as a native OS experience

                  Right now when you share something on OneDrive a browser opens. This gives it a less integrated feeling. It should be possible not to leave the context of File Explorer when sharing.

                  • iOS 8 Storage Provider Extension/Document Picker Support

                    I'd love to see (and really need it) the Storage Provider Extension, and secondarily Document Picker support within the OneDrive app. Being able to access and edit files from OneDrive without having to leave the app I'm working in is a critical part of me making the switch to OneDrive.

                    I was really disappointed to see the update come for iOS 8 today (Oct 8) without at least the storage provider extension. I've been wanting to completely switch over to OneDrive (from Box), but really can't do it until these basic features are supported. The other major players (Box, Dropbox,…

                    • Enable mapping online folders to different local drives

                      Now that OneDrive supports very large storage it would be nice to be able to map different online folders to distinct local paths in the Windows/Mac clients.

                      • Allow changing file extensions when renaming files

                        As a power user, I love being able to see and change file extensions on the fly in case I'm working in different formats, or want to see my text highlighted with different syntax. In fact, every time I setup a new computer, one of the first options I setup is showing file extensions so that I can do so. I'd love to be able to see such an option when renaming files on OneDrive.com.

                        • Add a mp3 player to OneDrive.com (>u0 )

                          Most of our modern browsers supports HTML 5 that can display a mini player of mp3 or ogg audio formats.
                          I saw that OneDrive have a mp4 player, but where's the mp3 player?
                          The HTML 5 player is simple and small, and the easiest way to the user hear music online on OneDrive.com!
                          So, I think that it is a good choice implant the HTML 5 mp3 player in OneDrive.
                          Thanks for the attention >u0

                          • Mark files as can not be deleted

                            Currently, when I delete a OneDrive file on a client (phone/tablet/laptop), the file gets deleted on OneDrive and on all other clients. This is the right thing for many situations.

                            HOWEVER, there are some situations where I want to ensure files are not deleted. Examples are using OneDrive for backups or archiving (e.g. photos/videos).

                            It would be great to be able to mark files as can not be deleted.

                            • Add an alternate menu bar icon to support dark menu bar mode on OSX Yosemite.

                              Since OSX Yosemite, they introduced a dark mode for menu bar. Problem is OneDrive icon does is not visible probably because the menu bar and the icon has the same color. Anyways, adding a quick white OneDrive icon will solve this easily.

                                  • Create Duplicate option under Manage Menu

                                    Every once in a while i need to create duplicate of existing document and i need to add the document in the same location where the original document is. It would be nice to have an quick option to create duplicate of existing document like in Google Drive (Make a Copy option). I know Onedrive has 'Copy To' option but to be honest it's just slow and requires multiple clicks.

                                    • Save image to OneDrive extension

                                      Scenario:

                                      I'm "surffing the web" and find an interesting image and I think: it would be great to save this image to share it to someone.

                                      So I'd like a browser extension (Chrome, Opera...) which would be able to save an image to my "Saved Pictures" folder (the one Windows Phone uploads stuff).

                                      • Give OneDrive users 50gb of free storage...

                                        Give users 50gb of free storage which will keep up with the popularity of MEGAsync, which give users a free 50gb upon sign-up. This will encourage users to sign up for OneDrive also, instead of only MEGA. In turn, Microsoft is showing it isn't afraid to not only set the standard, but along with MEGA, create the standard. This will know Dropbox, and Goggle Drive down a notch.
