  1. OneDrive CSP for MDM management

    With SilentConfig coming (https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/OneDrive-Blog/Previews-for-Silent-Sync-Account-Configuration-and-Bandwidth/bc-p/120993#M252) we need the ability to configure clients through MDM (Intune). A OneDrive CSP would help us achieve this.

        • OneDrive indexing for WIndows Search

          I am not sure I am at the right place to post this, but since some Microsoft engineer said here would be a more appropriate place for my post in Microsoft Community, here it goes (don't shoot me if this is considered cross posting):

          Prior to installing the Fall Creators Update on my Windows 10 machine last week, all my files stored in any of my OneDrive subfolders were indexed and fully searchable through Windows Search. For example, entering ‘content:management‘ in the upper right search box would return all the documents (PDF, Word, etc.) that contained the word ‘management’.

          Right…

            • Choose to Sync any folder from any location on my PC

              Instead of forcing me to move files/folders into a master OneDrive folder, I should be able to choose to sync any folder from any location on my PC's storage.

                • Copy or move cloud folder to another cloud folder

                  On Windows 10 Fall Creators update - If I want to move a folder that is in the cloud to another folder that is in the cloud it downloads and then uploads the files and the operation takes ages. In the web interface the same thing takes seconds. Would be great to improve this to be able to manipulate easier....

                  • Progress info for on-demand sync

                    It would be more user-friendly to show current progress of on-demand folders sync. Currently it's only shown as "Processing changes" and popping up new files in the OneDrive pane. User doesn't know how fast is it going, how much files are left, when it will end. Having similar info as for classic sync would be nice.

                    • Roll out enterprise management (GPO etc) with OneDrive Files On Demand

                      With the new OneDrive Files On Demand feature (placeholder replacement) would it be possible (if it isn't already planned) to incorporate some enterprise controls- for example via Group Policy.

                      When deploying OneDrive to our environment I'd like to be able to set the defaults on a per-computer and possibly per-user basis. Being able to use item-level targeting would be ideal.

                      Examples of how these preferences could be used include the ability to set the default behaviour to "Online Only" files for most users (particularly useful for student computer labs in education environments), or turn on "Always Available" on personal computers…

                      • Option to disable the popup when clicking on the system tray.

                        I really hate the popup that shows up when I try to open onedrive on my desktop by double clicking the OneDrive system tray icon.

                        It is supposed to only open when you single click, but it has no delay, so it opens instantly, even if you double click. It is really annoying and it needs an option to disable it.

                        It constantly glitches out as well, it would be really nice if I could just turn it off.

                        Thanks for listening.

                            • "Choose folders to sync" should be able to be selected from the tray, not just in Explorer.

                              The option to choose which folders to sync to your device should be able to be activated from the icon in the app tray, not just from right clicking your OneDrive folder in Explorer. You can do literally everything else in the app tray, but not choosing folders to sync.

                                  • Onedrive - Can you please put a 'Simple' Off Button for local folder ""C:\Users\name\Pictures""

                                    We do not want our local C:\users\ "Documents, Photos and Desktop" being automatically saved to Onedrive, with "No Easy" way to turn it off!!

                                    Please implement an off button for the local folders, doesn't seem like a complicated task!!

                                      • Allow more flexible options when there are "more than two of the same file"

                                        It is infuriating that OneDrive renames all the files originally on my computer as "filenameCOMPUTERNAME.ext"... It usually means having to 1) delete all the "new" files from OneDrive 2) rename EVERY SINGLE FILE so the computer name is removed for them. This feels incredibly cumbersome to me.

                                        Windows itself has really grown in how it handles copying/pasting multiple files where they have the same name as something in the destination... Nowadays you get a dialogue, allowing you to tick the files you want to keep... i.e. either the old version, the new version, or both. Why can't Onedrive come up…

                                        • Different 'status icon' for partially synced folders

                                          On-demand files are great. But I have folder with one 'keeped' subfolder. The subfolder has green check, parent folder has blue cloud. It looks like nothing inside parent folder is synced.
                                          There was a black square beside partially synced folder on older version. It will be nice to see the difference between online-only and partially synced folder now too.
