  1. Ad the option to justify the text

    Many students like me uses the OneNote app to take notes of classes. But it doesn't have the option for justify the text, so it's a con in comparison to other apps like pages o google drive.

  3. Single OneDrive and OneDrive for Business experience on Windows Phone

    I recommend Microsoft develop one single unified app that connects to both OneDrive Personal and OneDrive Business services (vs. the existing two separate apps) as they recently did with the Android version.

  5. Allow sign out from Windows Phone app

    I had put a lot of documents onto OneDrive, THEN I realized I could not sign out from my phone thus leaving myself vulnerable as all the info in the OneDrive would be accessible to anyone should I lose or have my phone stolen.
    It's just not good enough that I have to block this info via another device. Me, carry on with DropBox.

  6. If not "One Product" ... at least One Way...

    Here is my problem! Long text here.

    Q: What is this "One" all of us discuss? And what is behind it?
    Is it "One = Single" Product? or any "single" independent thing?
    I struggle to understand this "ONE"...
    A: There is no "one". :) Yet. But maybe it could be "One way" ...

    Windows is not just a kernel - it's a service too. It should provide necessary help to do your job - Like Cortana - when accessing some API's.
    But what Cortana can do if there is no API to use?

    So here is my problem: Let's take…

  7. Passcode on Windows Phone

    OneDrive saved all personal data from document, music, and picture but OneDrive does not request to enter PIN code to open OneDrive.

    The feature is important because it help to secure file in OneDrive

    Hi Silvio,

    OneDrive provides the ability to choose an image as the folder thumbnail online at OneDrive.com.

    Steps:
    1. Right click an image inside the folder you wish to add a thumbnail image to.
    2. Choose “Add as cover” from the menu.

  9. Cortana Integration

    Integrate with Cortana to (example) upload files, share files etc..

  11. Add a passcode to the iOS app

    To prevent unauthorised access to all of your files. The lack of a passcode has prevented me from downloading the app. Dropbox has this feature on their iOS app.

  12. Icons overlay and other visual help needed

    Since windows 8.1, we lost the icons overlay. Icons can give a lot of informations very quickly:
    - what is offline and online
    - what is synced or not
    - what is downloading or not
    - all other informations needed

    I know this has to do with Windows limitations but hey, you're working for the same company. Icons overlay are still as ugly as in Windows XP. We need some transparency, shades, a clear loader on the files, etc.

  14. i do not use one drive because i do not want anyone to have access to my files

    We built this — it’s in the top right “…” when you’re in the app. Click it and look for “Open Recycle Bin.” Thanks!

    A Mac OS X client still hasn't been released for OneDrive for Business.

  18. Don't rename images files on Android when using the Camera auto upload feature

    The camera roll auto upload feature on the Android OneDrive app is great! The reason why I don't find it useful, is that it renames the images files when uploading them to OneDrive for some reason. Please keep the original file names, or at least give users the option to. Thanks!

  19. Reverse Sync. Anytime I modify a folder on my laptop hard drive, it should automatically sync to my OneDrive.

    Anytime I modify a folder on my laptop hard drive, it should automatically sync to my OneDrive. I don't want to always work off my OneDrive. I like working on my laptop when I'm offline. When I go back online, it should query me if i want to sync the files/folders.

  20. Remove the File size limit of 2GB for syncing.

    There are numerous files that can exceed this file size. Especially if you're syncing family videos, large CAD files, or perhaps digital art files. This makes OneDrive not very useful for my purposes, and others I suspect.

    I heard back in 2012 that this was something that the OneDrive team wanted to do but I haven't heard an update on this since then. Please let us know what's going on with this.
