Show detailed synced status (speed, time, files...)
We ar efrustrated by endless processing changes and never know what is doing. Show us what OneDrive is doung:
- updating files xxx of xxxx
- time to coplete cca xx seconds/minutes
- uploading at xxkb/s
- files remaining
- files that is curently in sync
Thanks for the feedback. We recently began rolling out our new activity center which shows the files that are sync’ing, have recently sync’d, and more. There’s more to do so please create individual requests for features you’d like to see in upcoming releases.
We need a simple text file with some details in it. A log file. The kind of file most other bits of software can produce.
I simply want to interrogate the log file to know when OneDrive is synced and then I can shut down the PC. My internet is a bit **** so I like to have it sync at night but it doesn't take all night so I want the PC to shutdown when done.

I see the issue is not still solved.I'm using One Drive Business I have to download a lot of files (6 GB) but I don't know which folders are completed and which are under synicing. It's a terrible experience for me
We still need the Information about what OneDrive Client is currently doing when not showing files in the processing area… please provide more "debug" kind of info/log to be able to solve issues with a "stuck" Client!

The Activity Center you built still needs a lot of work. This isn't good enough Microsoft!
What "new activity center"??? I'm not seeing anything that was requested here and it's the end of 2019!!!!
I have been using onedrive for several years now but recently after some major upgrades, I have found that the sync process never stops and there are 158 files which never sync successfully. I understand that there are some corrections I can apply but I need to know which files are the culprits and onedrive doesnt tell me. Since I have a total of more than 110,000 files syncing, this is a problem. I need better status and logging information but specifically the names of files that are failing to sync.

Will Microsoft wake up or will it wait for us to move to DropBox?

!BOOM ITS PENDING
When can we expect any progress here? A animated icon doesn't make up for a clear progress report. C'mon
TIN EAR OR WHAT??? With all the vast superiority of MS software in the market, you'd think a Percentage Uploaded would be a no-brainer. Not that it hasn't been identified in 2015 and "claimed" solved back in 2017; but here we are breaching summer, 2019, and no way to know how much of a 1GB file is on the cloud and how long before I MIGHT be able to knock this client off line without leaving a fragment out there to confuse recipients of the link. Not a good optic. Hoping for better from "the best in the business."
Why we only have 3 months logs, for audited period we need at least 1 year log. How to achieve that?

A client side sync status admin function is a must. Many of my users are non technical and I need an alert from their machines to inform me of syncing issues. My boss is leaning toward another sync software solution if his sync issues cannot be solved(they are once every couple of months). I cannot stand over his shoulder 24x7 so an app to alert me through our Office 365 seems a no brainer. Server side app too to monitor and report on any sync issues.
Why is this still not done?
It makes troubleshooting sync issues a nightmare, I don't know where it is stuck.
How do you get to the Activity Center?
This has been open for 3+ years...
in explorer's detailed view add a columns to 1) show % sync completed 2) date time of last sync completion.

Where can this activity center (post of Douglas Pearce) be found?
This is still not available, on my Windows 7 Professional its always saying sync in progress X MB of X MB and Y files, if its stuck at least if it shows what file its stuck on we can make it move forward

I started syncing with OneDrive two weeks ago. It is still running, even though some nights I leave my PC on with only this task to do. But how much has synced and how much more to go? And why so slow? I don't think MS are reading these comments. :-(
Well I'm a new user and seeing all these comments on the lack of a VERY BASIC feature, i.e. how to know the status of files you are uploading, I think I need to go somewhere else. Sad. Although it does seem to be consistent with the entire tech industry's apparent strategy of removing as much information from the user interface as possible (to make it look clean and cool I suppose), thereby making older users who are used to straightforward menus and dropdown boxes think they are going crazy or are just stupid because they can't figure out how to do something that used to be child's play. And no, asking Cortana doesn't help.

The are is no reliable way to check sync status. PLEASE add consistent sync status feature.
