  1. Allow root-level sharing of one's entire OneDrive.

    I would love to be able to give my wife global access to my OneDrive account by sharing the root folder. Currently I can only share sub-folders.

  3. let me nickname OneDrive folders shared with me

    Currently, when someone shares a OneDrive folder with me (say, "OneDrive\Fun Project"), it shows up in my Shared Folders as the name of the subfolder ("Fun Project"). This works well unless the folder is something really common, like "Photos" or "Documents".

    I'd like the ability to choose what name MY OneDrive clients use to refer to this particular folder. This way, at a glance, I can see "Bob's Documents" and "Sue's Documents" instead of just fifteen "Documents" folders.

  4. Better sync conflict resolution

    The current solution is making a copy. If device b or the web is used with the same files as device a has not yet finished syncing - e.g. think about last played property update of audio files - then this is going to result in a conflict. I have ran into this myself while moving directory trees and updating photo file properties. The work to clean up duplicates is tremendous. Another ******************* forum shows I am not the only one frustrated by this. I feel it would be nice if we would have OneDrive and device file systems to…

  5. Can you work with backup vendors to enable a cloud-to-cloud backup solution for OneDrive?

    I'd really like it if MS worked with backup services like Crashplan, Carbonite, etc., to enable them to back-up OneDrive without users having to upload to both services. Going from cloud to cloud, essentially. Certainly, while OD is great, its not what I'd consider a backup option because everything is synched between it, my devices, my PC, etc. Likewise, there's safety in having multiple of copies/backups!

  6. Ability to control filename for camera roll picure upload

    Hello,
    I would like to request the ability to control the file naming for files that are uploaded from my phone's camera to the OneDrive Camera roll folder. For example I would like to photos to include the date taken, the time taken, as part of the filename for example: 2013-06-21 21.27.42

  7. Share local file storage where multiple logins on a workstation use the same Onedrive account

    I have multiple logins on my laptop for logging in to the company's domain, my home domain, 'Guest' use by the kids, etc
    They all use the same OneDrive account.

    However, OneDrive brings the data down into local storage separately for each login, so I have my 70 GB of files on my laptop several times over.

    And each one has to update to a from the cloud each time I log in as a different user.

    Offline files seem to recognize the duplication and only keep a single copy on the Workstation.

    Can oneDrive not do the same?

  8. Make OneDrive WebDAV network drive an option when setting up OneDrive.

    Make OneDrive WebDAV network drive an option when setting up OneDrive.
    1. Sync Everything (For laptops and desktops with plenty of storage)
    2. Selective Sync (For laptops and tablets that are offline often)
    3. Map Network Drive (For desktops and devices that are always online)

  9. Add geolocation to photo(s) through onedrive.com / mobile apps (eg iOS)

    It would be great if we could edit/add geolocation data to an already uploaded photo / multiple photos at a time, either from an existing (uploaded) photo or by manually specifying GPS coordinates.

    One should not have to download a photo from onedrive, modify its geolocation data and then re-upload it, especially when we could be dealing with hundreds of photos at a time.

  10. Show confirmation before deleting a large number of files/big amount of data

    When syncing starts and a large number of files is about to be deleted, please have an option of presenting a confirmation dialog before deletions take place. This dialog should clearly mention something to the effect "if you proceed with syncing you are about to delete XX Gigabytes of files / YY number of files on either your local drive or on OneDrive".

    This could be especially useful in various cases a user (made a mistake and) hasn't realized what would get changed after eg having stopped automatic syncing for a while, changed local syncing folders, etc.

    The user could…

  11. Regarding the notification message for malware or virus detection

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    ウィルス、マルウェアが検知された際に表示されるメッセージについて
    Regarding the notification message for malware or virus detection


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business および SharePoint Online にアップロードされたファイルに、ウィルス、マルウェアが検知された際に、ウィルス検知の画面に遷移すると表示される [ダウンロード] ボタンを非表示にする機能の搭載を要望します。

    Users see the notification dialog when malware or virus are detected on OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online and the dialog have the button for “download”.

    For the improvement of security, we hope the feature will be implemented to allow administrators hiding the “download” button.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  12. OneDrive application should ask to select folders to sync during account sign in setup before syncing begins

    When signing in to OneDrive desktop application for the first time please give option of what folders you would like to sync instead of without asking just syncing everything to my PC. This is very frustrating as I have to quickly stop syncing all folders and delete all the folders I do not want to see on my PC. It would be so much cleaner if you would just simply ask first during the app sign in process. Also when an account is unlinked and linked again OneDrive should ask what folders you want to see on your PC before…

  16. Add pages to saved docs

    After i save a doc with multiple pages to the cloud, I would like an option to add additional pages to the saved doc. Now I have to add a 2 to the end of the saved file. Being able to just add a page or more to existing saved doc would be best.
