  1. Limit Concurrent Uploads

    The ability to set a limit on the number of concurrent uploads would make uploading larger files so much easier and so so so less painful. With your abysmally slow upload speeds (taken 4 hours to upload 1gb) and constant crashing of the app (Mac OSX keeps signing out/disconnecting from the server if left unattended and/or I try use my computer for other things while its uploading in the background) I have had so many hash fails which is a waste of bandwidth and time.

    Instead of having 6-7 files getting to 90% and then the app crashes, I could…

  5. To be able to schedule syncing time.

    To be able to schedule syncing time.
    Currently, I can stop syncing for few hours. But, I have to do it daily.
    There must be an option where I can schedule “stop sync”.
    Example: Do not Sync from 6PM to 10AM daily.
    I don’t want my home wifi to consume bandwidth.

  6. Cancel uploading files

    Hello iOS OneDrive Team,

    I would like to suggest a feature that I think could improve the functionality of the app. I experienced this when I am trying to upload multiple photos to my drive.

    Can you please include a cancel uploading files functionality? In this way, the user has the ability to cancel incorrect files that he/she wishes to upload. I can only see close button from the upload toaster beneath the app and when I tap it, it just dimisses. There was no way to cancel all photos being uploaded at the moment.

    Thank you!

  7. Backup multiple drives and computers

    Cannot backup multiple drives or multiple computers on OneDrive. Google drive has this capability, which is extremely convenient. When do you expect to have it on OneDrive?

  8. Disable Files On demand by default

    Files on demand would have been a great idea 10-15 years ago when disks were small. Now that 1TB and larger disks are commonplace even in lower end laptops, this is just a horrible option. I've found myself forgetting when moving from one device to another to turn this junk off and when I find myself in a place with terrible or non-existent Internet I don't have all my files despite having hundreds of GB free on my disks. At the very least, I should be able to disable this quack feature in 365 globally so when I login it's…

  9. Videos no longer play in browsers

    Videos uploaded from an Android phone no longer open in browsers (Edge, IE11, Chrome). All my videos play fine using a desktop video player, but when uploaded to OneDrive there's just an error 'sorry, there was a problem loading the video.'

    This might have something to do with video formats, because it only affects videos taken with the Nokia 8 Android phone, where videos I've uploaded previously that worked no longer open in browsers, but videos taken with an old Windows phone (Nokia Lumia 925) still work fine. Both are mp4 though.
    There's a workaround in Chrome, by enabling 'load…

  10. Onedrive photo edit

    There is no easy way to edit a photo, just like a simple rotate a photo on OneDrive, and then save it to the same file. This is really frustrating as it should be a simple process to manage photos, edit, and share them with onedrive, instead of having to upload it to another photo app, then edit, then save back to OneDrive. Really dumb way of handling large amount of photos.

    I can neither do this on my phone or my computer.

  11. Provide the feature to be able to confirm the expiration date information of anonymous guest links on the screen (UI).

    For the ease of management, I would like to the status from the list on the screen(UI) when the anonymous guest link of the expiration date has met. Let me explain the current behaivor below.


    1. Select an item in OneDrive for Business, Set the expiration date of an anonymous guest link and sharing the data.

    2. Even if the anonymous guest link expires and the user cannot view it, [Sharing] status displays as [Sharing in progress].

    So that, I hope the function will be added that provides the status of each anonymous guest link on the interface whether the anonymous guest…

  12. 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.

  13. Duplicates

    Can an option be added in OneDrive to identify duplicate files I.e. When you have uploaded the same photo more than once but it's in different folders. This was a useful tool in Picasa and would be great if it could be incorporated into OneDrive. You should have the option to check and delete the duplicate.

  14. 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…

  15. Enable viewing the Image library properly without the OneDrive Apps.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    SharePoint アプリからの呼び出しの際に OneDrive アプリ経由の画像ライブラリの表示が可能な機能の実装を要望します。

    Enable viewing the Image library properly without the OneDrive Apps.


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePointアプリからサイト内の画像ライブラリを開くと OneDriveアプリが起動しますが、エラーが表示され画像をを見ることができないない。そのため、OneDrive アプリを経由せずとも正確に画像ライブラリが見られるように機能の改善を希望します。

    Currently, I am concerned that you cannot see the image when opening the Image library in the site from the SharePoint App because of an error occurs after the OneDrive Apps will be automatically launched. Therefore, I hope the feature will be improved that enables viewing the Image library properly without the OneDrive Apps.

    Thank you for your continued support.

  16. SVN issues with on demand sync

    With the new client on fall creators update (the one with on demand sync) basically no SVN clients I've tried can see that a svn versioned folder is actually versioned.

    VS can, but them it has it own share of problems not opening some files inside a onedrive folder (when on demand is active).

    Even if I chose to make the folder always synced it makes no difference. The only think I tried that solved the problem was deactivating on demand syncing from the client altogether.

    For now I've had problems with Visual Studio and SVN clients opening files from…

  18. 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

  19. File modified date changes automatically even if the file is just opened and closed without any modification

    In Office 2016, there is an issue with the file's modified date with files that are saved locally on a user's system but synced with their One drive.
    Even if a user opens up an excel file and just closes it without making any changes or without saving any changes, excel automatically changes the Date modified to the current date and time when it is opened. This creates problem in tracking the file based on their last modified date.
    Pls restore back the earlier version when the Date modified would change only on saving them and not otherwise.

  20. Disable "Download" option from One Drive for Business" Office 365 web console.

    It would be grt if Microsoft can provide us an option where in we can disable Download option from One drive for business web console.

    Reason: We have some confendital data that our employees save in ODB. We have created a policy from ODB admin console which says that they can only activate ODB on a domain joined machines. but the web console is not protected. The user can go home and login to ODB web console and download the data. For the security purpose we want to disable the "Download" option from the web console.
