  1. all member of a shared folder should be able to move files in subfolders

    Only the owner of a shared folder is able to move files into its subfolders (and the other way around). Other file storage systems also allow this to invited members. Adding this feature would increase usability a lot while working on a project.

  2. Static Web Links

    Share folders with static web links style:
    https://onedrive.com/host/A1B2C3D4E5F6G7H8J9

    For example, a link to dogs.jpg in an images subfolder could be.
    https://onedrive.com/host/A1B2C3D4E5F6G7H8J9/images/dogs.jpg

    The ability to link to files this way opens lots of possibilities for onedrive app developers. Writing a blogging tool, creating a process to publish updates to shared docs, outputting images in a folder in a gallery page — any onedrive use case that involves presenting a file in a browser can benefit from site publishing.

  3. Not every thing should download

    I don't understand why everything I want to use from OneDrive that is online only gets downloaded, I think there should be an option of streaming you should be able to listen watch and view wile its still on cloud without it being downloaded, and all from the device your currently, not the browser.

  5. make it so that non compatible video files that the app can't play be given the option to open with another app that CAN play the file.

    currently I have lots of mkv and webm files in one drive and there is no longer the ability to open those in an app that can view them. up until you integrated the video viewer in the app we could do this, but now we are no longer given the option.

  9. Allow synchronized libraries to be renamed and organized in folders.

    Each document library sync'd from SharePoint gets a default and unchangeable name, up to 36 characters. OneDrive auto-creates this based on the site name (up to 30 characters) " - ", and the library name (whatever's left over).

    All this is default behavior and fine as a default, but the fact that you can't rename or organize sync'd libraries means that if a site has lots of libraries and the site name is too long, the sync's libraries are hard to tell apart based on the three characters at the end of the file name that differentiate them.

  14. opción para poder discriminar subidas de copias de seguridad

    seria interesante una opción de carga diferida en la que si lo tienes activado, no te suba las copias de seguridad hasta que no confirmes las fotos pendientes que quieres subir. la opción marcaría por defecto todas las fotos pendientes desde la última subida y ahí podrías desmarcar las que no quieras. como sincronizaría las fotos desde la fecha de la última carga, las fotos que no has marcado no volverían a aparecer. si posteriormente quieres subir alguna lo podrías hacer manualmente

  15. Stop giving access to other public folders

    Every time a share a link for a folder from the public folders list, the same link can guide the user to view other folders and documents in public folders. This is not ideal as it breaches the privacy.

    Why not stop this. Dropbox has this facility.

  18. Print functionality

    It should be possible to select one or multiple documents and print them. In order to be able to provide this function cross device you'll need a cloudprint service. There could be a native windows functionalty to print remotely and a client for other os.

  19. Save As function for Office Applications on Tablets or Mobiles

    There is currently no way to open an existing document and then save it with a different name as a separate document on a tablet or mobile device. This is critical to people who open forms from OneDrive and want to be able to keep the structure of the current document, yet be able to save entered information under a different name. e.g.

    Open Form1
    I enter client information and save the file (change the name to Customer1)

    I go looking for my Form1 and it is no longer there, so I have to create my whole form again, just…
