  1. Thumbnails not generated in OneDrive folders anymore

    OneDrive on Windows 10 no longer generates file thumbnails in picture folders. I've tried a dozen fixes, so it is directly related to the OneDrive App and Windows 10. Windows 7 is actually working fine with the same files and OneDrive folders. So there is a recent Windows 10 Update that has disabled the ability for Windows 10 to build a successful thumbnail cache. This is happening on multiple machines but only Windows 10 and not Windows 7.

    • CPU usage is very high with 10.14 Mojave beta

      OneDrive app 18.091.0506.0007 with MacOS 10.14 beta 18A326g on MacBook Pro ... I have noticed that the OneDrive app when started on boot pulls significant CPU time as well as associated energy usage (fan runs continuously). This draw continues after OneDrive completes initial sync. If I quite the app and then restart app, CPU and energy usage drops to a couple of percent which is what I observe with macOS 10.3.5 on my iMac.

      • Ability to make the "People with existing access" default selection in "Copy link" dialogue.

        We would like to be able to use "Copy link" functionality or file sharing without messing the site permissions. There is currently no way for setting the default permission option to "People with existing access". Users need to change this every time they use the functionality.

        • Allow AD synced users to change language

          Currently, users synchronized with company local AD via Azure AD are not able to change their language in OneDrive or any other places via settings. Users should be able to change that and override the AD language setting, which is usually not used in Active Diretories or is not accurate. More info: http://www.lieben.nu/liebensraum/2015/03/change-office-365-portal-language-for-synced-users/

            • Bring to OneDrive Business option "Add to my OneDrive" only available only at personal OneDrive

              I want this feature in OneDrive for Business.
              https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Add-and-sync-shared-folders-to-OneDrive-8a63cd47-1526-4cd8-bd09-ee3f9bfc1504?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US&fromAR=1

              When someone shares a folder and gives you edit permissions to it, add the shared folder to your own OneDrive to make it easier to edit and work with the folder and its contents. If you sync the folder to your Windows or Mac computers running the OneDrive app, you can work with the folder offline.

              Add a shared folder to your OneDrive

              Sign in to OneDrive on your browser.

              In the OneDrive navigation pane, under OneDrive, click Shared. Folders you can add to your OneDrive are marked Can edit.

              OneDrive…

                • Allow controlling the permission to share among the users in the organization.

                  I am aware of that there is a function to restrict "external sharing" available on OneDrive for Business. However, I feel It is inconvenient that the simultaneous editing is becoming impossible due to forgetting to close the file. In addition, if the users have the permission for "browsing only" hence they are not able to open the file in Office of the client, but it is possible to print the "Print" contents when opening the file via the browser by now.

                  Therefore, I hope the feature will improve enables controlling the permission to share among the users in the organization…

                          • Too many characters / File name too long

                            In our office we are using (migrated from Alfresco to SharePoint) OneDrive for business it works fine, but we have serious problems with file names that are too long or containing to many characters. It makes me and my colleagues quite desperate since every week we have to check the problems and we have to shorten the names. This is extremely annoying and should be there anymore, its the year 2017 and we are storing more and more data.

                            (Dropbox has not this issue, so they should be a way to fix this)

                            • Onedrive is a total piece of garbage programmed by total morons, I'd love to list the countless reasons but I only have so much space to typ

                              You arbitrarily change the amount of space people can use, you create duplicate files for no reason other then to waste the limited free space you deal out so people who don't know or look will just think they need to buy more space, not realizing that there are three or more of every single picture in the onedrive. I suggest you either A) totally shut down and stop pretending you know what you're doing, or B) code your s*%t properly, add checks and confirmations for duplicate creation, if the file is a picture and youre confused about which one…

                                  • Add support for online playback of Sony AVCHD (.MTS) video format.

                                    Currently Sony AVCHD (.mts) video files will not play in onedrive. Many of my home videos are shot in this format. Sony's cameras are somewhat popular and I think this format should be supported.

                                    • Option to automatically resize large photos before uploading to camera roll

                                      It would be great if there was an option to automatically resize large photos before uploading them to camera roll.

                                      I often take lots of high resolution photos, occasionally I need the high resolution photos but a lower res backup on camera roll would be sufficient.

                                      • Give user control the Cache on iOS and Android

                                        For iOS and possibly adroid, it is needed to be able to control how much memory will be used to cache files, such as how the Amazon Cloud app works. I would like to limit it to 500 MB, or 1 GB. I would like to be able to see what is cached and individually remove items from the cache. I would like to be able to fully clear the cache. I would also like to be able to mark cached files to be except from this clear (always keep on device). With only a 16 GB iPhone, I run…

                                        • Update OneDrive for Business file size limit to be competitive

                                          Increase OneDrive for Business file size beyond the current cap of 15 GB/file.

                                          OneDrive for Business needs to stay competitive.
