  1. 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.

  6. 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.

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  19. Use more colours in the theme - blue and white only is boring and tedious!

    I almost want to have an additional 1TB Google Drive subscription despite getting 1TB free with Office 365 because OneDrive is horrible to look at. Drive makes use of various colours and also has folder colours.

    Blue and white is just so uninspiring!!! The theme puts me to sleep and makes the idea of browsing my OneDrive seem like a chore.

  20. Bulk Upload Tool

    Create a bulk upload tool (like the one Amazon has) to allow bulk uploading of large files and folders (with over 100,000 files and over 200Gb in size). These folders could be network shares as well. This will really allow us to easily bootstrap OneDrive with the data we need before the sync magic kicks in.
