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.
BOOM! It's NOT DONE.
Basic sync file logging would be great -- write to OneDrive instead of local computer if Privacy is a concern.
We face several OneDrive Client sync error a day and in most cases I have no clue what the reason for the interruption is. Sometime client is sync 24/7 and effectively doing nothing. We need a deeper look into OneDrive Client processes.

A Tenant-Wide OneDrive Sync failure notice or Report please.
We IT admins need something more to go on than "Processing 5 changes"
What 5 changes would they be?
What exactly is the OneDrive process doing at a given time, like when it says Syncing 1 file - 300KB at 0.0KB. It then springs into action and moves past this to get to the Processing changes status.
OneDrive creates countless logs file which are no use to anyone, even OneDrive support have trouble knowing what to do with them and you have to delete them and then by the time you have replicated the issue the logs again are no use to anyone as its recorded to much information to troubleshoot it.
Its so frustrating not knowing what is going on and most of the time you just have to go with the /reset option when its not working which then magically fixes it but then you have the hours of waiting for it to sync back up again.

My computer in 5 days only upload 500MB of 200GB and it goes so slow that I had to change the computer for working. And I don´t have any idea how long it will take. And when I tried to move out some folders, tell me I can´t because is sync in the cloud. If I sell a car like this, the clients will sue me. It is not right the quantity of time waste. The systems should give priority to the user not to the running program that but the other way, when collapse the system, you can not stop. It is frustrating, really.
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.
