    Thanks again for the suggestion. You can now press-and-hold on an item and drag to select large numbers of files. Check it out!

  3. allow saving to shared folders in iOS App

    When saving to the OneDrive app in iOS (using the Open in... feature), it would be great to be able to save to a shared folder. As of now, you can't do that. If a team is working on a series of documents, they still can't share with each other easily. They have to each create a folder shared with others and then everyone on the team has to check every folder. If there was a shared folder for the whole team with edit permissions, it would be great for them all to be able to save to that folder.…

  4. Allow files of any size to be uploaded and synced

    As much as I appreciate the hard work of the Onedrive team for removing the 2GB file size limit and pushing the limit to 10GB, I was really hoping for an unlimited file size when syncing from the desktop or other localized app. I might be an edge case, but I use a competitor to sync VHD's (Virtual Hard Drives) that I use for various purposes and those are far larger than 10GB.

  5. Support for RAW/NEF/DNG photos (especially thumbnails)

    Onedrive.com supports RAW photo files, but the Onedrive for Business photo gallery doesn't.

    (the consumer product supports professional photo formats and the professional product only support consumer formats. Disappointing...)

  6. Batch tagging

    Now that I'm able to add tags to photos, you should give me a simple way to add the tags to a set of photos.

    As an example, I want to tag all photos I take at work with the #work hashtag.

    Thanks for the suggestion – we just finished rolling this out. You can now easily edit all the tags on one or more photos. Just navigate to the tags view, pick the photos, and select “Edit tags.”

  7. Remove (Hide) Files from "Shared with Me" view

    Allow removing/hiding files and folders from the OneDrive for Business "Shared with Me" view.

    Some shared files and folders are unwanted or obsolete , so it should be possible to remove/hide those.

  8. Folder selective sync with OneDrive for Business

    I am using OneDrive for Business on Windows 8.1 PC and have 1TB plan. Once I upload files to OneDrive I don't want to download them all.

    I want to be able select folders I want to sync so I don't need to download all files (1TB).
    Problem described in http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/sharepoint/en-US/7f3e9994-9ca3-4550-b82e-2bfe64eab692/folder-selective-sync-with-onedrive-for-business?forum=sharepointgeneral

  9. Revert the pivot menu UI for WP

    The WP update v4.4 (27/10/14) has brought with it a new UI and menu system that is totally at odds with the Metro design language. The Android-style menu goes completely against the grain of the simple, elegant and clean pivot menu that it replaced. Please revert it back.

    The addition of the big blue bar across the top is distracting. The mini icons, hamburger and oddly placed search have together created a less fluid design, that lacks cohesion. Please bring back the proper pivot menu.

  10. Allow OneDrive for Business to synchronise with SharePoint document libraries other than your own private doc library

    OneDrive for Business on Android (and probably iOS too) will synchronise with your own private document library hosted on SharePoint, however it does not provide the ability to synchronise with other SharePoint document libraries. If you are looking to do away with a server for small business and use Office365 (ideally SharePoint) then you must be able to provide this capability for Android tablets. It works for Windows based tablets/laptops but not Android (and probably iOS).

  11. Make it possible to choose folders to sync in the photos backup feature for Android

    There should be a way of choosing what photo folder will or will not be synced by the Photos Backup OneDrive feature. All my screenshots are being synced even though they are in a separate folder from the actual camera folder, and all my photos taken using third-party apps that are saved in other locations are not being synced at all.

  12. OneDrive for Business Api: Get list of shared files and folders

    It would be great to have a OneDrive for Business API to get a list of all the shared files and folders.

    I can get all the shared files and folder with the normal One Drive API by calling: "GET https://api.onedrive.com/v1.0/drive/shared". Unfortunately, this API seems not to be implemented for ODB.

  15. Choose which folder will be included or excluded in All Photos view.

    When I go to all photos view, I see my screenshots i save to one drive as well as wallpapers. However I want to be only seeing my personal photos.

    I also work on graphic files and I don't want them to show up.

    If you click the cog in the photos view, you can change the view to point at your Pictures folder instead of your entire OneDrive. Hopefully that addresses your scenario. If not, can you open a new item that is more specific? Thanks!

  16. Allow OneDrive to sync to removable media on Windows

    I store many files on OneDrive so I can access them on multiple devices. Many slates/tablets don't have a lot of storage, but do allow for SD cards. Syncing to an SD card would allow me more storage to have files available off line.

    I'd want this option even if it required the SD card could no longer be removed (I don't take it out as it is), or if OneDrive became "unavailable" if the card was removed.

  19. make the OneDrive desktop app PORTABLE!! That way you may not even have to implement the LAN sync feature that many of us have requested.

    I suggest you make the OneDrive desktop app PORTABLE!! That way you may not even have to implement the LAN sync feature that many of us have requested.

    If you make the application portable, then people will not have to download all of their data again from OneDrive server after formatting their PC/Laptop. In this particular case, LAN sync will not be required.

    Secondly, it will be immensely beneficial for technicians and students too who cannot take their lappy/PC everywhere but can only carry a portable drive with them. And please...don't try to make $s off of this idea -…

  20. please fix the OneDrive .pdf viewing problem

    If we share a .pdf file with someone in OneDrive, when they click on the shared link the file opens in Word Online, and the file looks horrible when viewed in this manner, especially if the file contains graphics and/or nonstandard fonts.

    Please fix .pdf viewing in Word Online or allow the .pdf file to be opened in Acrobat instead of Word Online.

    A third choice might be to allow file sharing in a "Download Only" mode instead of opening in Word Online. In simple terms, you click on the file and I prompts you to download or open the…

    We changed to use the native browser PDF support and will continue investing to make this look good. Try it again and let us know if you think it’s better or if there’s more you’d like to see.
