  1. Bring back static URLs for image files. Currently they change every day.

    Prior to the month of May, images files stored on OneDrive had static URLs. "View Original" displayed the image using a static, unchanging URL. You could use it to link images to blogs, forums, web-pages, etc.

    Since May, posted images no longer get a static URL; it changes at least once a day. It is no longer possible to link an image to a blog because the link is only valid for less than 24 hours. OneDrive is no longer a viable cloud-service provider for image files.

    Please try out the new embed experience for photos. You’ll see an “embed” option in the command bar with options for getting the right image size for your site. Let us know what you think!

  2. Sync pictures Metadata (tags and titles) both ways

    Applying metadata (tag and title) to a file on a PC syncs the metadata to the online storage, however metadata applied online does not sync back to the client.

    Please fix that. Tags are grate for pictures.

    Thanks again for the suggestion. Tags you explicitly add to photos will now sync down to the photo and should work in other apps that read these standard tag formats. We also recently updated the website to make it easier to manage tags on multiple photos. We hope you enjoy these updates and please keep the feedback coming!

  3. Remove the "OneDrive - Personal" from Explorer when not enabled.

    When we enable OneDrive for Buisness, the user also see a "OneDrive - Personal" folder in explorer, and when the user click on it, it will open the OneDrive for buisness folder?

  4. Fix special characters in company name bug on mac

    If you have a special character in your company name - for example / - the mac client is unable to use the folder you have chosen.

    A/S is the primary company type in Denmark, and names should include this notation. Because of this, the problem is widespread in Denmark.

    I guess there are more special characters that are not being handled on the mac as well.

    Read about the problem here:

  5. 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.

  6. 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);
