    When using OneDrive to store Visual Studion solutions, when you try to publish or run in debug mode you get the error Cannot Delete Directory "app.publish" You then need to go into the BIN folder and manually delete the app.publish folder

  3. Duplicates created when opening documents (iOS)

    Offine-avaliable files opened while online and causes the iOS app do display a duplicate file that can not be deleted, opened or changed.

    This happens every time an offline-available document is opened, edited and closed. These files can not be deleted, marked or edited in any way. Only way to remove these duplicates is to reinstall the OneDrive app, it is not solved with deleting cache.

    The original can still be edited but new duplicates are created upon closing/uploading the changes. These duplicates only exist on the device (does not appear in sharepoint or other devices) and i suspect these…

  4. Improve security with Touch ID (iOS)

    Some iOS apps will force re-enabling touch-id app-authentication when TouchID/FaceID has been added or changed.

    I can add my finger to TouchID and gain access to OneDrive where the pin on the OneDrive app is different than the one on the iOS device iself. We work with common iOS-devices in our team and setting personal pins on the OneDrive / office apps.

    Forcing users to re-enable touch/face-id upon device authentication change will prevent "weakest link" authentication

  6. 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…

  7. make one drive useable

    I sent feedback via Office 365 as well since I have added storage through my Office 365 subscription. This is an issue I ran into while collaborating with a consultant.

    Fix OneDrive to make it useable in real life, not in a world with DOS file names!

    Basically, a terabyte of storage is unusable to me, because it will not sync reliably. Files with filenames that are too long and files with certain characters in their name (%, &, _, | ) have to be renamed to eliminate characters that ICloud, Dropbox, Box, and Amazon can all manage! This is…

  8. Look into stability issues

    Or perhaps the blackberry keyone specifically. The app crashes/freezes almost every time I use it, particularly when multi-tasking / switching between apps

  10. File name is entire path when saving as in Onedrive folder

    In some applications like powershell and acrobat, when you click save as and it's looking in onedrive by default, it will write the filename as the entire path.

    It will still save in powershell but acrobat gives an error that the file name is too long. I'm not sure what other applications are affected

  11. fix date taken/modified on tagged photos

    When I add tags to pictures and then sort by date taken, some appear with the date at which I added the tag, seems it's mixing up 'date taken' and 'date modified.'

  15. Can't get onedrive to reverse sync.

    Have shared a onedrive 'Clients' folder with a colleague. This colleague makes changes in the folder, and I can't see any changes on my end. His end is saving it fine. I was the original creator of the folder and the one to 'share' the folder. Anyone know how to fix?

  17. search function bug...

    Appears to be a "search" function bug for pc (WIN 10 - Chrome, Firefox & Internet Explorer)

    Within OneDrive, we all know there is currently a "search everything" option.

     - As the Admin: I type in the details of my desired search and press "enter". The optional files containing the contents of my search in the files/file names are populated. When I click on one of the files, a new tab opens stating "This item might not exist or is no longer available". Obviously a bug, because the file does in fact exist. How do we know the file exists?

  18. Ability to transfer audio/music from disc to Chromecast audio

    OneDrive allows you to transfer images (photos and videos and music) to a Chromecast (TV plug). Google also has a Chromecast Audio (a plug for speakers). Please add support for transferring audio/music from my drive to Chromecast audio (on my speakers). This way, from the cloud I can play on a system that plays music, podcasts, or audiobooks. Thank you.

  19. Make photo upload and management better than Google photo

    OneDrive photo upload simply does not work. It is not auto as I have to click to get it to start. Once I switch apps too work on other things, upload stops. It takes a long time to upload, won't play photos well on Chromecast, just too much problems with it.

    To make it worse, I tried to make a photo book with Shutterfly, it won't upload photos from OneDrive.
