    boom! it's done  ·  Omar Shahine responded

    This is supported on Windows 10 Mobile. We don’t have plans to add this to Windows Mobile 8.1.

  2. Fix background saving of camera roll

    The background saving of camera roll does not work correctly. It pretends to work in background and to save all images in camera roll into the dedicated OneDrive folder (own images). Initiative should be a change of networks (place). All options chosen.
    Indeed this feature does not work. I have to open the OneDrive App and manually start the saving of the images in camera roll.
    Tested and proofed on :
    iPhone 5s, Iphone 6, Iphone 6s, iOS 7 and 8.

    We have a number of improvements to background sync in the latest iOS release. Please try it out and send us in-product feedback if you have any problems — just shake your phone while in the app and we’ll take a look.

    Select all (pictures or videos ect.)

    You can select all files by clicking “ctrl-a” and then you can take whatever action you’d like. Pro-tip a shortcut for seeing all of the shortcuts is to type a “?” to bring up the shortcuts dialog. Hope that helps!

  5. Move To and Copy To

    Add 'move to...' and 'copy to ...'. for files and directories

    Thanks for the suggestion. We recently added a right-click option on files and folders — just look for the “move or copy” command.

  6. Bring parity to OneDrive and OneDrive for Business Clients

    Create -one- client that can handle multiple accounts for both OneDrive and OneDrive for Business. Instead of having two clients that can only handle one account for OneDrive and one for OneDrive for Business build one client for all your accounts with feature parity (selective sync, sync shared, etc. etc.) I have one consumer OneDrive and several Office365 OneDrive for Business Accounts but there is no option to connect all accounts and sync locally.

    This one slipped through the cracks – but we delivered a converged sync client last December! While we don’t have 100% feature parity, many of the most critically asked for features are available – including the ability to do Selective Sync, support removable media, sync files up to 10 GB in size (up from 2 GB), use less disk space and do it all more reliably and quickly than before. Feel free to create new suggestions (or upvote existing ones) for the next set of features you’d like to see.

  7. 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

  8. 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!

  9. iOS 8 Storage Provider Extension/Document Picker Support

    I'd love to see (and really need it) the Storage Provider Extension, and secondarily Document Picker support within the OneDrive app. Being able to access and edit files from OneDrive without having to leave the app I'm working in is a critical part of me making the switch to OneDrive.

    I was really disappointed to see the update come for iOS 8 today (Oct 8) without at least the storage provider extension. I've been wanting to completely switch over to OneDrive (from Box), but really can't do it until these basic features are supported. The other major players (Box, Dropbox,…

    Great suggestion! We know this is important for our iOS users. We’re happy to let you know that we released this feature earlier in the month. Give it a try and let us know if there’s anything we can improve. Thanks for using OneDrive. :)

  10. Enable uploading of folders via OneDrive.com

    Allow to upload whole folders for OneDrive on the web. It should be possible to upload folders by drag and drop from the desktop to the browser window.

  11. Gif animation

    The app currently doesn't support the animation of Gif image files. When clicked they remain static images.
    The iPhone photo fall doesn't support it either so if gifs were playable in here I'd use the app more often.

  12. SharePoint: Sync selected subfolders of shared folder

    I want sync only selected subfolders for shared or public folder.

    E.g. currently I can sync only whole tree shared by someone
    \SharePoint\User filder\Shared with Everyone\

    I want to sync only part of the tree - \SharePoint\User filder\Shared with Everyone\A\B\C

  13. 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.

  14. Link Windows libraries to OneDrive

    Imagine this: You have a Windows Desktop, Surface/Notebook/Tablet and a Windows Phone. You want all files that you edit to save directly to OneDrive, so all devices contain the same data and you don't want to always decide between the Windows libraries and the OneDrive folders.

    As a result, you want to link the local libraries on every device with the suiting OneDrive folder. When your saving files to your Documents Windows library, it is then syncing with OneDrive.
    This should be configured with the OneDrive client for your device. The 30 GB storage that are now available should be…

    Thanks for the suggestion. If you open settings by right-clicking on the OneDrive cloud icon in your systray, you’ll see an “auto-save” tab. Currently we make it easy to default your Documents and Pictures folders to OneDrive. You can actually re-map any of the Windows known folders to point to OneDrive folders, too. Enjoy!

    The OneDrive API can be used to access content from document libraries in SharePoint, OneDrive for Business, and OneDrive Personal

  16. Multiple Photos Downloading

    It would be great if Onedrive IOS app can have this function of downloading multiple photos instead of download one photo at one time.

  17. 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.

  18. Return OneDrive to the way that it was pre Windows 8.1

    The following problems were documented on Microsoft's community page here: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/files/i-am-having-multiple-problems-with-skydrive-in/3194a7ee-bef6-4c41-b199-0bb1a4da6e2e

    I never received a solution:

    I can't wrap my head around SkyDrive in Windows 8.1. These are the problems that I am having:
    1.I select a folder, and then select online only. The Available Offline disappears. I come back 5 minutes later, and the folder once again says "Available Offline."

    2.When you select online only, after a folder was available offline, you should see some status as to what is happening. i.e. these 650 files are being deleted.

    3.The SkyDrive App says "Downloading 6 items..." in the upper right…

  20. 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 -…
