    • Office sync should come turned off by default

      The most common question from forums I attend is from people that want to disable sync Office documents that are stored in OneDrive folder.
      I know the team is working hard to make a better sync, but the general opinion is that by OneDrive should be shipped with this option turned off by default because it slows down greatly the user experience.

      • 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.

        • 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.

            • 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!

              • 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.

                • Prevent user from desynchronizing some folders

                  It is recommended by Microsoft to redirect "Known folders" to OneDrive for Business.

                  Source Microsoft: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Redirect-known-folders-to-OneDrive-for-Business-e1b3963c-7c6c-4694-9f2f-fb8005d9ef12?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

                  Desynchronizing a folder on OneDrive also removes it from the computer. This behavior generates side effects when desynchronizing "System/Known folders" (ex: Desktop)

                  Is there any plan for adding a GPO that could prevent users from desynchronizing some of their folders ?

                  • Download Bandwidth Throttling

                    Even though the upload bandwidth throttling through GPO is already available, the download bandwidth throttling is even more important to guarantee that operational processes are not impacted.

                    Please implement this as well.

                    • Enable fingerprint as passcode

                      Please enable finger print unlock as pass code instead of standard pass code, just like drop box does. No offense! It's just my suggestion.

                        • 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…

                            Provide the same functionality that is available in Windows and MacOS sync clients that allows offline files to be edited. Curently read-only

                            (NOTE: Files marked offline are read-only - you can edit the file only when you're online. If you edit the file offline, it saves as a new file, and does not change the original OneDrive file.)

                            • I suggest you may deliver a generic ADMX/ADML template

                              You delivered a non-generic ADMX/ADML template with the necessity to manually add non-generic information like the tenant id and OneDrive Folder Default path.
                              This breaks up with the design principle of a template, which has to be generic. The non-generic Information is added via gpedit.
                              If you have a look at the policy "Site to Zone Assignment List" within inetres.admx, you can see that it is possible since Vista to create templates, where you then are able to insert the non-generic Information with gpedit and thus the policy creates the Sub key structure within the registry.

                                So why can you scan multiple pages with office lens but not with the new scan feature in onedrive? And vise versa regarding renaming the file.

                                • Make the OneDrive client controllable by batch

                                  It would be nice to have commands at hand to control the OneDrive client per user in a simple yet efficient way, e.g. set the up-/download rate of OneDrive\user to NNN kbit, pause or restart, get info about remaining time or bytes etc. This is important e.g. during night hours, where no one's at hand to adjust the clients manually and where archive, backup, reo or whatever jobs could hand over bandwidth and processing power to OneDrive once they finished their work.

                                  • Remove 'This is your OneDrive folder' when user don't have the option to change location

                                    We have disabled that the user can change location, but users still see the screen and the ‘change location’ link, they are just not able to click it, this confuses the user, and is not necessary. could you please remove it.

                                    • 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!

                                      • Enable choosing an OneDrive folder where to save a file with "save as" option

                                        Today it is not possible to choose a folder within OneDrive for Business if you work online and want to save file. "Save as" saves file directly in root folder.

                                        • Disable Sharing in OneDrive for Business ENTIRELY

                                          For our company it's a Must-Have to be have the option to disable the sharing on ODfB entirely (also tenant internal).
                                          This is to prevent users from setting up project or team workspaces in their own user drives.
                                          A similar idea was posted here, but since it was not splitted up by the user, I posted this new one.
