  3. 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.

  4. Fix problem that changes linked Excel file location

    When creating a link between data in two Excel sheets without OneDrive, the program links to the file location on the hard drive. Once OneDrive is in place, Excel forgets the hard drive location and tries to link to the OneDrive web location which results in an error message. This is a MAJOR problem. This renders one of the most vital functionality of Excel useless!

  5. 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 ?

  6. Bitlocker and OneDrive

    OneDrive should be able to recognize that the OneDrive-folder is on a directory which is protected by Bitlocker. If you start the computer and OneDrive can't open the folder because it is still locked, OneDrive should ask to unlock this drive first before ask you to reallocate the folder.

  7. 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…

  9. fix the context menue in the new version.

    The new onedrive client works great, but I have an issue in the context menue:

    If I right-click a file in OneDrive, I used to have a OneDrive context menue which allowed me to "share...". This redirected me to my OneDrive on the web and opened a "share with..." dialog.

    Currently, if I right-click a file in OneDrive, I only get the "Choose OneDrive folders to sync".

  11. Fix the wrong file name from date time of the uploaded pictures on iOS

    Since Nov/Dec 2013 OneDrive update on iOS, OneDrive app on iOS always used GMT time, instead of local time, to name the auto uploaded picture files. It is so difficult now to know the exact time the pictures were taken and the worst is the pictures I take during night time is using the next day's date!

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. enable adding a photo to another album from the "Albums" view

    When I'm browsing the photos in album A, and see one that would also be good for album B, I'd like to add it to B. However, there is no "Add to album" button. There is one if I'm using the "Files" view, and there is one if I'm using the "All Photos" view, but not while I'm using the "Albums" view. This is frustrating because in order to add the photo to album B, I have to back out of the "Albums" view and go into either the "Files" view or the "All Photos" view, navigate to that one…

  18. OneDrive Files On-Demand bug

    I've noticed a bug on multiple instances in our environment. Syncing with a SharePoint site, using OneDrive build 18.091.0506.0007 and running on Windows 10 Enterprise b1709 and b1802.

    With Files On-Demand enabled, and when navigating to any folder in the site, it automatically downloads the files in that folder even though none were set to 'Always Keep on this Device'. Also, when right clicking these files and clicking 'Free Up Space', it switches back to the cloud (online only) and one second later, re-downloads them.

    Tested on a newly imaged machine with no other software on it. Windows Defender isn't…
