      • Online-only support for Mac OS X

        Hello! I really like the online-only feature that OneDrive has for Windows, and I'm sad that the same feature isn't available for Mac. The files I have are eating up space on my hard drive, and using selective sync doesn't cut it (the large size of my OneDrive is due to images and .PSD documents which I open in bulk for image editing, and are a hassle to download from the website every time I simply want to use them.)

        I'd really appreciate it if this feature were implemented, since I'm running low on space! If not, I'm probably going…

              • 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.

                • Fix OneDrive so it works with OSX High Sierra

                  Since the public release of OSX High Sierra, OneDrive is unable to sync up to an O365 SharePoint document library. Downloads are fine. A clean install to OSX Sierra resolved the issue.

                      • Make OneDrive MacOS FileName compatible

                        Sync all your files anywhere, anytime across PC and Mac? Hardly!! OneDrive still has legacy Windows filename limitations and refuses to deal with files/file names that are fully legal names on the MacOS. This has been an issue for YEARS that Microsoft has continually ignored. Until Microsoft can be bothered to fix this, OneDrive will continue to be nothing but an "also ran", trailing far behind competing products/service what do not have such issues (which would be just about every other product/service out there). Until Microsoft can be bothered to fix this, I will have no other choice but to…

                        • Redirect MS office applications (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) to the online version

                          When I open Word files using OneDrive for Mac, they open as local files, causing me to lose out on functionality that I would get if I had pointed Word directly to the online file (such as the ability to use the Share menu to share the file or collaborative editing capabilities).

                          Were I to open the same file from within Word by selecting Open, then going to my connected OneDrive account (not the local folder), then finding my file, I would get all of these nice online sharing features.

                          While I've only tested this with Word, I'm guessing that…

                          • OneDrive installation on AFPS

                            Hi, I recently subscribed to O365, but cannot install OneDrive on my MacBook. The install goes fine until it needs to create a local folder to sync with, then I get the error that it cannot install because my file system is case sensitive, which it is. My research so far could not assist at all, and as I understand AFPS is designed to be case sensitive, and this is the way my machine was bought. Can you please investigate the possibility to allow OneDrive to install on a case sensitive volume, as I can do with DropBox and ownCloud?

                            • Reduce the number of steps to get to "Choose Folders" screen

                              I am constantly dipping in and out of the "Choose Folders" to sync screen. I think there are too many steps to get to it in my opinion. It would be great if we could reduce the number of clicks and menus required.

                              When working on certain projects, or if I need to reference an old project I use the "Choose Files" window to download only that folder from my OneDrive. It would greatly speed up my workflow if getting hold of project files could be simpler.

                                • improve the OneDrive Desktop app for Mac by allowing the Finder window to display files & folders that are shared with me by other people.

                                  I suggest you improve the OneDrive Desktop app for Mac by enabling the Finder window to display files & folders that are shared with me by other people (as I can on DropBox & GoogleDrive). Currently, I can only see files & folders shared with me by using the OneDrive web interface.

                                  • Sync Issue with Office for Mac Applications

                                    See the post in Microsoft Community where the Microsoft support person acknowledges this issue. It was recommended I post it here so the OneDrive team is aware of this problem.

                                    • should accept special characters for file names

                                      Synchronizing with OneDrive for Apple Computers is otherwise nearly impossible, as Apple accept Special characters e.g. / for file names!!!

                                          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…
