  1. 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)

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

        I'd like to be able to sync folders that have been shared to me to my Mac, rather than having to access them via the web.

        • 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,…

          • 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.

              It is a must feature since we may have multiple accounts on onedrive and even google drive support multiple account login in android phones. Please add this feature.

                    • 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.

                      • Provide an easy way to move files from OneDrive to SharePoint Online

                        Provide an easy way to move files from OneDrive to SharePoint Libraries. Show all Tenant Site Collections and their Document libraries where the user has write access. A cool extra would be the ability to move (and copy) files between SharePoint libraries. I guess a partner could build this, but I really think this should be a platform feature available to all standard Office 365 tentants. In my opinion these actions should be supported by the Office 365 'Files' (preview) API.

                          i know onedrive is posed as a storage only solution
                          but it would be really cool to take google's and dropbox approach and make photos a priority

                          by either a seperate app (that use's the same onedrive account) or an update to the exciting, features like auto face recognition, auto enhance, video transcoding (for mobile viewing), full tags support and most importantly a native way to browse through the faces/albums/tags/dates/locations/memories

                          • Enable differential sync / only sync parts of the files that changed

                            incremental sync is a must. If a large file is only slightly changed, currently the entire file needs to be re-uploaded. This is a very slow and inefficient process. If only the changes to the file needed to be uploaded, this would be a significant improvement and also be a competitive advantage for Microsoft compared to other cloud storage products. This would make syncing so much more efficient.

                                  I constantly get errors when working in Word: the file is uploaded to OneDrive but fails to download (sometimes the error persists). I'm asked to open the file and save manually, which occasionally solves the problem. The problem is getting the "choose which file" option: pick the file at onedrive or the one I have locally. It is impossible to know which is the latest, because sometimes upload fails and sometimes the subsequent download (which is unintuitive) fails. The only way of figuring out is to go to onedrive.com, download the file, and use the "compare" feature of Word to…

                                    • Vacation Request for Office (aka Calendar)

                                      Office suite - besides eMail, Calendar ++ should have a Vacation Request (Calendar Type) feature... that IT/HR departments could use instead of SOOO many proprietary ones... witch... are not good or stable.
                                      ... accessible from OneDrive/Office365.
                                      P.S. I know this is "Windows" section not Office one... but until I find office one... this will do...

                                      • Stop sharing multiple files at once

                                        Currently to stop sharing a file you have to select it, go to the properties, and stop one by one. I want a bulk change option please.

                                        • remove the file path and name limitations

                                          please work with the idea that in this day and age people do not use the 8.3 file naming structure anymore and that people have unlimited file depth in their path structures. you could at least be as effective (i would hope) as your competitors.
