    • Better support for Sketch.app files

      We still use Dropbox as OneDrive doesn't play nicely with the Sketch.app files on the Mac our user experience designers use. We'd love to move off of Dropbox entirely and only use OneDrive, but aren't able to until Sketch.app files are better supported.

        • Please add online-only for mac users

          I have 2 subscriptions for Office365 this means i have 2048 GB of online storage but my MacBook Pro has only 256 GB of local storage why not i cant choose which files to keep on the SSD and which Files to keep online only like what i used to do with my windows laptop... selective syncing isn't really helpful because I will have to to open the browser every time i need to access my non-local storage and re-download what i need after then re-upload it again and this is just a pain... i am moving to iCloud next…

            • Share option

              Would be nice if the new update for MacOS would have a share immediately with the system in OneDrive

              For example, when you click to see more details the *Share* button you can choose OneDrive

              Thanks

              • import powerpoint mac notes

                make a function that allows importing powerpoint to one note on Mac with the slide notes -- none of the current formats for importing an MS powerpoint (exporting slides as PDF, PNGs/TIFFs, etc.) to one note keep notes associated with the slides. I have to manually copy/paste them for every slide as a result, which is tedious for a student who uses tons of ppts!

                • Play avi files please

                  You used to be able to play avi files. As a matter of fact I have some avi files already there and they play. Please make that a feature as it takes forever to convert files to mp4 or mov.

                  • Stop Lastest Mac Version Beach-Balling/Not Responding

                    Since a recent update the Menubar icon keeps beach-balling and check in Activity Monitor and it's "Not Responding". Force quit it and re-run it and if you are quick you can get into preferences and that runs ok but close preferences, click on menubar icon again and it's beach-balling/Not Responding forever.

                    Kill then re-run the app and it will sync properly. And whilst beach-balling/Not Responding it will still sync OK (menubar icon changes to show syncing, files sync, menubar icon changed back - so it's the UI or something that is locked-up as clicking on or moving mouse over menubar…

                      • Make OneDrive look more like an OSX application

                        The OSX version of OneDrive looks like a 'tacked-on' application and not a native OSX app, the GUI is totally alien and looks out of place from everything else. Can we please get this polished up and make it less like a Windows10 application and more of a OSX application.

                        • Local OneDrive folder on iPad that syncs automatically with the OneDrive cloud folder and the local One Drive folder on a laptop.

                          With iOS11 now supporting local file folders, local OneDrive folders on both a laptop and an iPad that sync with the online OneDrive folder would allow both devices to work on and off line, with latest changes available on either device, with and without an internet connection.

                          • Web Portal New Folders/Documents Safari 10.1.1

                            There is a problem with the onedrive web partal. Currently in Safari you are not able to create a new folder or office document from both the menu or right mouse click. You have to revert back to the classic UGI to do this. In doing so you loose the fluidity. I have previiuls logged this here:

                            https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/forum/odwork-odfiles-sdoffice/one-drive-on-safari-1011-will-not-create-new/d0182639-34ea-46de-950e-3a3fa9216b4a

                            where it was suggested I post here also, thanks.

                            • keep the open at login checked when updating the client through the app store

                              After update or reinstall the checkbox that opens oneDrive automatically is unticked. Please allow either a way to script this, (e.g. modify a plist somewhere?) or keep this setting persistent.

                                  • Make the title of onenote for mac not show the syncing status

                                    The title on the onenote for mac is very distracting. The title is constantly changing from "$Notebook_name" to "$Notebook_name - Syncing" to "The title on the onenote for mac is very distracting. The title is constantly changing from "$Notebook_name" to "$Notebook_name - Syncing" to "$Notebook_name - Sync Complete". I strongly suggest making the title of onenote for mac not show the syncing status and putting the syncing status inside the menu bar.

                                      I am uploading files using the "upload" steps in onedrive.live.com website.

                                      I did all the steps you suggested and didnt work.

                                      • High Sierra Beta - Onedrive isn't working anymore

                                        I installed the High Sierra public beta and now my one drive connections aren't working. Just wonder if anyone else had the same thing happen. Any suggestions on how to fix the problem?
