  4. Download shared folder from OneDrive without logging in?!

    Based on my topic right here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_onedrivefb-mso_winother/download-media-folder-from-onedrive-without/3658c926-f9ae-4bb7-a7dc-1da68f26b2fb?auth=1

    Why can I download 1 folder without logging-in and 1 requires me to log-in? Why do you even have to login if someone shared something and you simply want to download it? Why make it so complicated??

  6. File name location details

    I have collection of more than 10 thousands files. Often times I forget their location. I can search for a keyword and often find the file. But I don't know which folder it resides. To find this, I click the file details, it has "file name", "modified", "size" and "location". The "location" value is different from the "file name" value, however, location is neither show the full path not it is a link to the folder where the file resides. Location is obviously is just the "folder name", not the full path. Please make it useful.

  10. Share links dangerously default to view and edit

    File sharing currently defaults to creating a link with both view AND edit permissions. This link is retained, without any indication to the user, even when the user deselects the allow edit permissions box.

    This is a VERY dangerous security flaw because some search engines are capable of discovering these links by brute force. I had one of my excel files completely *nuked* by an anonymous rando that had found the view+edit link that I never knew had been created (even though I only ever explicitly shared a view-only link for the file). They nuked the file by reverting it…

  12. Add Support for Commas (,) in File & Folder Names (Currently replaced with Carets (^J))

    Currently, file & folder names containing commas (,) are auto-replaced with carets (^ or ^J) despite the fact commas are not listed as unsupported special characters.

    Please add support for commas in file & folder names.

  13. Photos taken in Burst Mode - iOS Camera Upload Bug

    Hi there!

    I have problem with uploading photos that I took in Burst Mode (continuous mode) on my iPhone 5s. Despite the fact, that automatic camera upload mode is ON, OneDrive iOS app uploads only some of them.

    For example: I take 10 photos in Burst Mode. OneDrive app uploads only one of them.

    How to fix the app to upload all of them ?

  14. New Version - more maturity

    This software needs some urgent updates since the installation pack Office 365 Business didn't install OneDrive on Mac and the credentials used on Word, Excel, PPTm Outlook are not valid into OneDrive. The user must find tech docs spending hours and proceed some techs steeps in order to get logged in. It spends too much time and energy and must be fixed due there is no reason to have the same credentials integrated into all Office 365 apps. Also, I don't understand the reason to keep OneDrive out of 1.3G pack downloaded during installation on Mac. Also, the credential issue…

  16. Thumbnails for folders updated or able to switch off

    The thumbnails for a folder dont seem to update. I move all the photos from Camera Roll to seperate folders (Leaving Camera Roll empty) when a new photo is taken and uploaded to Camera Roll the thumbnail is of a picture that was long since moved. This needs to be updated or the ability to switch of thumbnails would be useful.

  17. OneDrive web actually moves no more than 100-200 files

    This is a bug that has been staying for 4+ years and it really grinds my gears.

    When I select more than 100 photos and videos in "Camera Roll" folder and move them to another folder, OneDrive moves actually no more than 100-200 files, then tells wrong that it has moved all the files I selected in upper right corner.

    This bug doesn't rely on browser and subscription (I'm currently on Office 365 for Students and tried in Chrome, Opera, Firefox, Edge), but probably it's specific to my account.

  18. Ability to switch between update rings (Production to Enterprise or Enterprise to Production).

    Microsoft says that you can define the Rings in Group Policy. Sadly this is NOT completely accurate. Here is what you can do:
    • If you are in the Production ring (18.06x) and you want to go to the Enterprise ring (18.025.x).
    • You add the registry setting as they say here:
    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/use-group-policy-to-control-onedrive-sync-client-settings-0ecb2cf5-8882-42b3-a6e9-be6bda30899c?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US#enableenterpriseupdate
    Section: “Delay updating OneDrive.exe until the second release wave”.
    • You will not be able to change your version until the Enterprise ring gets a version higher then the one you already have. Which means you will have to wait around 60 days…

    Please add the ability…

  19. Stop restoring long deleted files

    OneDrive has a horrible habit of restoring long deleted files and I know the cause. I commission one of my clients laptops manually and therefore logon as my account to install software. OneDrive is synchronised on this computer. I then typically don't logon for months but when I do, OneDrive assumes that the files found locally are new and re-synchronises them back even though they were deleted afterwards on another computer. This might not seem like a big problem except today is restored an old script with a similar name which had been deleted. I didn't spot this and ran…

  20. When browsing through OneDrive files on on the iPhone it is too easy to trigger a ‘pick up’ and ‘move’ file. You need to have a confirmation

    When browsing through OneDrive files on on the iPhone it is too easy to trigger a ‘pick up’ and ‘move’ file. You need to have a confirmation of this move as a two step process or make the screen touch and move less sensitive.
