  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

  11. Allow uploads greater than 15GB

    If the user has the capacity, uploads shouldn’t be limited to 15 GB. I can’t store a backup on OneDrive because it’s 20 GB. Google drive doesn’t have that problem; iCloud has a 50 GB limit.

  12. Allow substituting a drive letter for the OneDrive for business folder(s).

    We have a database that uses drive letters for folders. Using the "subst" command will do just that, substitute a drive letter for the long OneDrive path. However, this creates the folder "System Volume Information" - a hidden, read-only system folder that crashes OneDrive every time! Make OneDrive ignore system files! Allow a drive letter substitution for the long OneDrive path!

  14. Change Default folder color in Onedrive

    Change the default folder color from black or give us the option to change the default folder color. Some of our users are complaining they are visually challenged and are unable to see the folder.

  15. Make it easy to disable Office 365 group creation in One Drive

    The PowerShell to turn this off is extremely complicated and requires most companies a support call to assist them with it. This feature creates a site collection and is very powerful and should rarely be accessible by a standard user. Please put a setting on the OneDrive administration panel to turn off Office 365 group creation except for Global Administrators.

  17. Add Embed features to One Drive for Business

    Schools are organizations with the most flexible and varied use of Office products. In many cases presentation of the products also occur on other platforms eg one note or websites or wikis or VLE/LMS platforms.

    Most school organizations with Office365 products also have a onedrive for business framework. To encourage teachers and students to share resources in an effective way we desperately need to ability to embed resources.

    visual learning is a hugely effective part of learning. Embedding powerpoints or mix files so that they play on a a different platform, embedding Wordfiles to make it easier to view without…

  18. Fix special characters in company name bug on mac

    This is stated as fixed in version 17.3.6378.0329 of the mac app store app, but the problem is still the same.

    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:

  19. Differential synchronization

    In the current OD4B specification, when updating the file in the folder to be synchronized, the updated file, not the difference, is fully synchronized, which leads to the tightness of the communication of the end user's NW by the communication of OD4B.
    In our recognition, only Word, Excel, PowerPoint files supports differential sync, if OD4B deal with files that created other applications as well, it will be very helpful.
