  1. Ability to control filename for camera roll picure upload

    Hello,
    I would like to request the ability to control the file naming for files that are uploaded from my phone's camera to the OneDrive Camera roll folder. For example I would like to photos to include the date taken, the time taken, as part of the filename for example: 2013-06-21 21.27.42

  2. Remove or hide connected services from Word and Excel

    I wanted to remove some "save as" locations from Word and Excel. Currently shows 3 different cloud locations which come from OneDrive:
    - OneDrive - <company name>
    - Sites - <company name>
    - OneDrive personal

    Our users are only using one OneDrive location which is their OneDrive for Business folder, and it's too confusing for them to see 3 different cloud locations under "Save As". I wanted to keep only the OneDrive for Business, and followed by "This PC".
    I have read an article that shows that I could remove those connected services under File > Account menu option, but…

  3. bring back onedrive placeholders!!!!!!!!

    This can't be hard to do...without it, I now have to take multiple steps to retrieve files that used to be one click away. I was a Microsoft fanboy for decades... But the utter silence on this...and other things -- like letting WP die on the vine -- is really making me bitter towards the company.

  4. Share and Sync functionality for folders with Office 365 to PC and Mac

    Teams using Office 365 Business Premium should be able to share and sync OneDrive for Business folders over all OS platforms. It should possible to share folders between the users of groups and have these folders synced automatically to Windows 10 PC's and Macs.
    This functionality is available for the personal OneDrive version, but Office 365 Business users will want to use their 1TB space which comes with OneDrive for Business.

  5. Implement the "Notifications Feature" in the modern UI as well.

    Previously, there was a function to notify the users by email when items has been changed in the classic UI. By the way, I assume that this function is not available in the modern UI at the moment. It is a little inconvenient for us due to we frequently used the function so far. Therefore, I hope the feature of " Notifications" will be implemented in the modern UI as quickly as possible.

  6. Do not re-upload photos if they are already present

    There are two basic concepts here:
    1) Photos should be uploaded to the same OneDrive location, regardless of their source (the PC app and the mobile device should both upload to "Camera Roll" (right now the PC uploads to "Camera imports" but the mobile app uploads to "Camera Roll."
    2) If a photo has already been uploaded by another device, they should not be uploaded again. This is not an advanced concept; Windows Live Mesh/Sync had similar capabilities. Examples:
    - If I use the OneDrive app on my mobile device to upload photos, and then connect my phone to my…

  8. OneDrive Albums

    PLEASE, make it possible to disabled the automatic option of making galleries or albums from my photos. It is really frustrating. I wish to turn it off and I can't. If you have such option one should be able to control if he wants them or not. You can't just force it on me to automatically make weekend albums or whatever.

  9. Apple "Live" Photos formatted on OneDrive

    Photos taken with iPhone 6s/7 camera are "live" photos that move when you hold down on them. It would be great to save them in that format to OneDrive! I don't want to store some since they will become still photos on OneDrive :(

  10. Show shared documents on new desktop client

    Instead of having to go to the one drive online page to open shared documents that others have shared to me via word and one drive rather have those documents show in there respective office apps or have all documents shared with the user appear and sync to desktop.

  11. Camera Upload

    Please enable the Camera Upload feature in the mobile OneDrive for Business app. It's kind of ridiculous that free users can upload their pictures to personal OneDrive accounts, but paying business users cannot.

  12. Auto populate the OneDrive business owner email adress to enable "request access"

    The default receiver for approval of access request to documents store on OneDrive for business is currently "someone@example.com".

    It would make very much sence that the "owner" of the OneDrive for Business email address is automatically loaded in to the field "Access request approver"

  13. Ability to mandatorily sync certain folders to OneDrive in an Enterprise environment through GPO

    In our Enterprise we have need to be able to enforce syncing of certain files and folder so the user will always sync those files and folders between the workstation and OneDrive.

    It would be nice to have a GPO or control via an Administrative Template that would allow the Administrator to select specific files and/or folders that sync when Sync Client is launched. And under OneDrive client settings where the user can select which folders they want to sync or not sync, the mandatory folders would be checked on and grayed out so the user could not uncheck them.

  14. Sharing MULTIPLE Files

    OneDrive for Business should allow you to share more than 1 file at a time - like OneDrive for Personal use allows!! This is annoying and a good reason why I keep many files with Google!

  15. iOS app should support Live Photos

    This seems natural to include in a future version. I'd like for OneDrive to include the live photo versions of all my photos so I can stop paying for iCloud so I don't miss out of these features. I have amazing clips of my friends and family and special events and the live photo captured the special moment perfectly. I have already lost too many of these moments since OneDrive stripped that functionality.

  17. Accept special characters in filenames.

    Some of my clients use #'s and other characters in their filenames, which causes that the files are not synced (i.e. the whole idea of access from different places is non-existent) and I'm getting sync errors continuously. OneDrive waits for my response, but I'm not allowed to change clients filename structure. Thus, the OneDrive is super annoying.

  18. Work out sync glitches

    onedrive doesn't sync properly between devices. Old versions or missing new files on different devices. Sync-ing is essential! Which is why i'm going back to Dropbox.

  19. Disable "An update is required" popup

    When not using the latest OneDriveSetup sources you will get a prompt to update OneDrive -> "An update is required. To continue using OneDrive, you need to update it.". This message seems totally useless since OneDrive does a proper update in the background anyway.
    Please adjust the installer to get rid of this update prompt or give the possibility to have control about this update behaviour (e.g.: special parameters for the OneDriveSetup.exe).

  20. Sorting

    Please make a way to universally sort all folders by name, ascending, instead of having to do each one. It is very annoying to have to go into each folder and sort them the way I want them and then all my settings are erased each time I update the app. An "Apply to All" setting would be great for folder sorting / view
