  1. Automatically creating an album

    Allow us to disable OneDrive automatically creating an album please. This annoys a lot of people, including me, and should be optional.

    • Duplicate picture files

      Would it be possible to have a way in which the user can select an option in a folder where one drive will scan that particular folder for any duplicates and then gives the user the option to firstly view the duplicates, and to either delete, move, Download etc. This would definitely be one way to clear clutter for those who have backed up their phones to one drive. Keep up the great work! You all are awesome and there are people like myself who appreciate the work and effort you all put into this!

      Kindest regards,

      A happy user!

        • Chromebook: Office Online Extension, button "Save to OneDrive" to Business Onedrive

          If you install the Office Online Extension for you're chromebook
          https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/office-online/ndjpnladcallmjemlbaebfadecfhkepb

          And you open a Word document on the web it opens in a webviewer Example:
          https://view.officeapps.live.com/op/view.aspx?src=http://www.snee.com/xml/xslt/sample.doc

          If you want to Save the file to you're business account with the Save to OneDrive button than you only can login with you're personal account. Please fix it, that you also can login with you're business account!

          • Detect when computers are on the same subnet and sync data directly between them rather than over the internet.

            To save bandwidth, data could sync directly between computers. Dropbox does this as does Windows Update. It is great when seeing up a new computer.

            • Allow creating "direct links" flavour when sharing a file

              Allow creating a shared link for a file, which can be send to a user via email (for instance) and user can download the file by using the link even from a computer without the need of using any Microsoft office account/api.
              To be clear, sharing files without any restriction, a "direct link" flavour.
              It's working as expected for a zip file for instance, probably because Microsoft cannot open it, so it lets you to download the file.
              But for a word file, Office Online is opened in the browser when clicking on the link.
              The behavior I'm looking for…

              • Show full file/folder name

                I know lots of apps use the ellipsis/three dots (...) when the text reaches a character limit, but I think it's a little annoying when you have to go to the properties of the file/folder just to see it's full name. Just make a new type of view (detailed view?) or make it as an option in settings.

                • Store Microsoft Groove Android app offline music in a SD memory card

                  Currently, Microsoft Groove Android app can store offline music only inside phone's internal memory. It would be great if we had an option to store it in a SD card memory, as we can in Windows Phone's app.

                  • Enable long file path for OneDrive for Business

                    My 1GB of storage part of my Office 365 Business subscription is more or less useless because I get the "File name too long" issue with most of my files.

                    The following request is now closed as completed but I have voted on it with OneDrive for Business in mind (and I'm sure a lot of other other users did!).

                    So, OneDrive for Business users, make your voice heard and vote for this!

                    • OneDrive sync client behaviour when syncing too much data

                      I was shocked by the behaviour of the OneDrive sync client when syncing more files than you have space for on a system. The system goes into an endless sync loop after filling up the hard disk with no error warnings. If a file does not fit, the client will fill the drive then delete the half copied file and go around in a loop endlessly trying to sync a file that will never fit.

                      The behaviour needs to be to test the file to by synced to see if it will fit into the space available before trying to…

                      • Improve OneDrive setup / deploy / update experience for Enterprise

                        Currently, the OneDrive client in Windows 10 is a per user install. Updates are installed per user and require internet access at time of running.

                        It would be great if the OneDrive client could be installed on a per machine basis and be updated in a similar way or using Windows Update/WSUS/ConfigMgr.

                        OneDrive for Business is starting to become popular with Enterprise and making them manage this per user seems a little backwards.

                          Allow OneDrive for Business Sync Client to recognize domain-bound Macs in the Enterprise.

                          Our company recently adopted the OneDrive for Business (OD4B)next generation sync client. As part of this adoption our internal Information Security team has set a security policy allowing only domain-bound workstations to leverage the OD4B sync client.

                          We are binding our Mac workstations to our corporate domain, just like our Windows workstations; however, Microsoft has told us that Macs are not truly bound to our corporate domain -- they are simply "associated" with our domain meaning our Mac workstations fall outside of this domain-bound security policy. This…

                          • Admin Controls for OD4B Sync for total space consumed on PC

                            We need the ability to control the total amount or % of space consumed on a PC device when sync'ing OD4B content. We are seeing where a user may have a large amount of data in OD4B (1TB+) and on laptops and surface devices this will consume all the available space. Controls that can be managed by the Administrator to limit the amount of space or the ability to sync only the tree structure (like on IOS) is required.

                              • Show captions on photos in shared albums

                                I have added captions to the photos in a fairly large album, thinking that when I shared it with others they would see them. But the only way that they can see them is by opening the information pane on each photo.

                                Captions are a vital part of sharing photos. They should be visible:
                                1) In the slide show
                                2) On each full screen photo, with an option to turn them off
                                3) On the thumbnail screen, perhaps as tool tips

                                • Sorting

                                  I find the sorting in this app hard to use. Id like to be able to sort by date created. Also, it would be great to be able to choose a date for an album. I have recently been creating loads of albums with my photos and the date I made the album is not necessarily going to be the same date as the event I've created an album of. Id like to be able to choose a date, in which the event happened, so albums sort in a logical order.

                                  Cheers

                                  • Allow OneDrive to sync to USB or SD card on Mac OS X!

                                    I only have 128GB hard drive on my Macbook Air. I don't have enough available storage to put all my cloud files on my hard drive. OneDrive will not allow syncing to external USB or SD card, so I currently use Google Drive for my cloud storage. Would love to use OneDrive, but can't.

                                    • to stop creating albums!

                                      Would you please be so kind as to stop creating albums of my uploaded photos (for backup purposes) without my permission! That is annoying, useless and makes me want to switch to an other service provider!

                                        It would help greatly if we could use the photo uploading capability to our business one Drive location since we are office 365 business premium subscribers. Instead of uploading to a 5gb personal drive.

                                        • OneDrive-Fotos als separate App

                                          Da es meiner Meinung nach umständlich ist zwischen der standardmäßigen Foto (bzw. Galerie) - App und OneDrive zu wechseln bzw. diese zusammen zu nutzen, würde ich mich über eine eigenständige App freuen, die Fotos auf dem Smartphone sowie Fotos auf OneDrive zusammenlegt und nach Möglichkeit auch den Datenaustausch vereinfacht (Upload auf OneDrive, Löschen von Lokal gespeicherten Fotos, die älter als beispielsweise einen Monat alt sind und bereits hochgeladen wurden etc.)
                                          Ich würde mich über eine Rückmeldung freuen!
