  1. Implement a "Save To OneDrive" Share Extension for iOS

    So from most apps a file can be saved directly to OneDrive.

    Just like DropBox has. I use DropBox a lot more because of this. All sorts of apps (that DropBox knows nothing about) can use the share extension.

  3. Add sync status markings to files in OS X sync client

    All Windows versions of Onedrive consumer and business, show the sync status of files and folders (green check for synced, circular arrows for sync in progress, red X for sync error). This would be a helpful addition in the sync client for OS X. Both Google Drive and Dropbox OS X clients allow this so it should be doable.

    Additionally, sharing directly from Finder would be a HUGE value-add.

  4. Auto Upload

    My photos only backup when I open the app and leave it open. Therefore, my photos seldom get backed up! The Dropbox app works much better for mobile photo backup, as I have found, automatically uploading photos without ever opening the app. Plus, the uploads are incredibly slow!! It's not on my end - I have tried multiple 50 Mbps plus cable connections and LTE too. Please update this so I can use this app to backup my photos and videos.

  5. Use OneDrive for business as home folder

    I would like to store my users data in their one drive for business root folders
    C:\users\%username%\Onedrive for Business\Documents
    C:\users\%username%\Onedrive for Business\Pictures
    C:\users\%username%\Onedrive for Business\Music
    ...
    and use folder redirection with GPO to set it automatically

  6. Provide a PHP SDK for onedrive

    PHP is one of the most commonly used server-side web development languages and I was really surprised when I came looking for a PHP SDK and found none. I would like to have OneDrive support for my web app, I already integrated Dropbox and Google Drive and I hope you can provide me with something to work with in the near future. Thanks

  7. shared by me

    In OneDrive consumer there is a best feature that in OneDrive For Business does not exists. This feature is "Shared by me" which allows to know, after a long period that I have shared document/folder, what are my sharings

  9. Offline

    I'd like to suggest you add option for keeping the photos or other files available at offline mode ( when the phone disconnected from internet) but without showing the files at the phone photos as downloaded photos.. I mean we can access these photos without Internet but only through Onedrive application.

    Good luck

    Thanks again for the suggestion. We shipped this at the end of April to all paid customers. Please go check it out!

  11. New sync client must support team sites

    Horrified to read this in the FAQ for the new sync client:

    "Our focus right now is exclusively on OneDrive for Business cloud sync. We’re still looking at our broader sync strategy for Team Sites and On Prem. The existing sync client for OneDrive for Business will continue to support sync in these solutions."

    Sync of team sites is very important. I know several businesses who only use the team site (because they want to share documents).

    If you still have to run the old, broken sync client for team sites this is a massive disappointment and means users…

  14. Spotlight support on iOS 9

    With the new Spotlight features in iOS 9, the contents of our OneDrive accounts can be potentially searched from the Spotlight search box. To do this, though, the OneDrive app should support Spotlight indexing of files stored in OneDrive.

  16. Error in the tutorial

    Dear,
    In https://dev.onedrive.com/sdk/javascript-picker-saver.htm page in the example Example of the pickerOptions object, there is an error.


    1. pickerOptions var = {

    2. success: function (files) {

    3. // Handle returned file object (s)

    4. alert ("You picked" + file.values [0] .FileName);
      5.},

    In line 4 is the correct alert ("You picked" + fileS.values [0] .FileName);

  18. iOS date format incorrectly recognized on iOS app

    iOS OneDrive app incorrectly parses dates from photos in Camera Upload. It currently assumes the date format always is MM/dd/yyyy, which is wrong in some countries.

    For instance, 09/04/2015 is read as 4th of September in US, but should be read as 9th of April in Canada French (Quebec).

    This leads to weird behavior, when as a result of date format used by regional settings of iOS, date is stored as dd/MM/yyyy, and day is > 12:

    19/08/2015 (19th of August 2015) will be read as the 19th month after Jan 2015, that is 8th of July 2016 (see attached…

  19. Shorten Link should use HTTPS-based URLs

    In this era of the secure web it is difficult to understand why the shorten link functional on OneDrive uses an HTTP-based URL. Wrap it before you use it with TLS/SSL!
