  1. Provide the ability to set an alert in OneDrive for Business from the Standard view (not the Classic OneDrive)

    Provide the ability to set an alert in OneDrive for Business from the Standard view (not the Classic OneDrive). Each folder or document should have the ability to have a “follow” or “alert” associated with it, without having to go to the “classic OneDrive”. Utilize a “right-mouse” button to allow for the “alert” or “follow” function.

  2. Fix incorrect calculation of remaining free space when using Symbolic Links

    Creating a SymLink in the local OneDrive folder to another drive may incorrectly disable the "OK" button in the selective folder sync dialog. Reason: the calculated remaining free space on the local drive (used for the OneDrive folder) is incorrect.

    Example:
    Drive C (size 200 GB, 150 GB free) contains the OneDrive folder which contains a Symbolic Link to D:\syncme
    Drive D (size 1000 GB) contains 300 GB content in D:\syncme
    => The remaining free space on C is being calculated as -150 GB (or less), i.e. the OK button cannot be selected, even though there is still free space…

  3. Allow others to edit or collaborate on shared albums

    I would love to be able to create shared photo albums that can be co-owned as opposed to simply shared. It would be nice to be able to give permissions to someone else so they can share their photos to the album as well.

    An example of this is the following. When I was recently in Europe with my girlfriend, we both took lots of photos with our phones and they were uploaded to our respective onedrive folders. Now it would be nice to be able to create an album (not a shared folder) of the trip where we can…

  5. Prevent user from desynchronizing some folders

    It is recommended by Microsoft to redirect "Known folders" to OneDrive for Business.

    Source Microsoft: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Redirect-known-folders-to-OneDrive-for-Business-e1b3963c-7c6c-4694-9f2f-fb8005d9ef12?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

    Desynchronizing a folder on OneDrive also removes it from the computer. This behavior generates side effects when desynchronizing "System/Known folders" (ex: Desktop)

    Is there any plan for adding a GPO that could prevent users from desynchronizing some of their folders ?

  8. make it possible to completely uninstall onedrive.

    Microsoft should make a patch that enables the customer to completely uninstall onedrive. Any software should be available to those who want it, or want to pay for it. But forcing it upon customers is unacceptable and undemocratic. Please discuss?

  10. OneDrive for Business and Windows Terminal Servers

    I would like better integration with Windows Terminal Services. You have to create user rights in Office365 and Terminal Services if the files are housed in a drive other than C: on the terminal server. This is of course double work. The other option is to load OneDrive in the user profiles on the C:. This avoids the need to manage rights on the terminal server and only through Office365, but it saves the files multiple times and eats up space. There should be a way to control rights only through Office365 and save the file only once on the…

  12. Support for newer Canon .CR2 RAW format

    Up till now I have been able to get viewable tumbnails and fullscreen of my pictures taken with Canon 600D in RAW format .CR2, when using the webinterface and onedrive app on windowsphone.
    Now, I changed my camera to Canon 7D mark II which is using a newer/other version of .CR2 RAW format and no tumbnails or fullscreen picture is available in webinterface or app on windowsphone.
    Please upgrade server to support this newer/other version of the Canon .CR2 RAW format.
    I am looking forward to be able to see my newly taken pictures again.

  13. It would be great if there was a Tag management functionality. That would sum up all current tags, let you delete tags manage tags better.

  14. Request for setting of automatic synchronization of OS standard folder

    For synchronization of OS standard folders like My Documents, Desktop etc., Please make it easy for administrator or user to set up. For example, it is very convenient if there is a method such as preparing a check box.
    Since I also confirmed that it is implemented in other cloud storage services like iCloud (function is limited but, iCloud can select the sync target by check box ), I'd like you to implement it on OD4B as well.

  15. Add support for online playback of Sony AVCHD (.MTS) video format.

    Currently Sony AVCHD (.mts) video files will not play in onedrive. Many of my home videos are shot in this format. Sony's cameras are somewhat popular and I think this format should be supported.

  16. Implement the function of the automatically uploading images to OneDrive for Business.

    I am assuming that the function of the uploading images automatically to OneDrive for Consumers is the available feature so far. I also hope this feature will be implemented enables automatic uploading photos taken by iPhone to OneDrive for Business directly.

  17. Chromebook: Office Online Extension, button "Save to OneDrive" to Business Onedrive

    If you install the Office Online Extension for you're chromebook
    https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/office-online/ndjpnladcallmjemlbaebfadecfhkepb

    And you open a Word document on the web it opens in a webviewer Example:
    https://view.officeapps.live.com/op/view.aspx?src=http://www.snee.com/xml/xslt/sample.doc

    If you want to Save the file to you're business account with the Save to OneDrive button than you only can login with you're personal account. Please fix it, that you also can login with you're business account!

  19. Bitlocker and OneDrive

    OneDrive should be able to recognize that the OneDrive-folder is on a directory which is protected by Bitlocker. If you start the computer and OneDrive can't open the folder because it is still locked, OneDrive should ask to unlock this drive first before ask you to reallocate the folder.
