  1. Allow access to 'Group' files from O365 in this App

    There are several 'group' areas I am a member or owner of in my organisation which have shared files. These files (organised by group) do not seem to be available directly, only via 'recent documents', rather than in an organised way.

    Being able to identify these groups and access their files from the OneDrive app would be very useful,just the same as it's possible to do from the OneNote App.

    Thanks

      • Find folders when you save a document

        Some users has a lot of folders and subfolders.

        Sometimes is very complicated to save a document into onedrive navigating through the folders because people doesn't remember the complete path

        It could be nice to enable the search bar in order to find a folder when you save a document into onedrive

          • Sell only personal OneDrive in all bundled subscriptions

            There are a few SharePoint enthusiasts in this world, but they are few and far between. For most customers the backend SharePoint database is making OneDrive for Business an inferior product compared to the personal OneDrive or Dropbox.

            Issues specific to OneDrive for Business that I have personally encountered are [1] changes made to files / file sizes, [2] randomization of the "modified dates", [3] unacceptable characters in file names, [4] unacceptable paths and [5] sync client crashes.

            For me and I suspect most other business customers this is a horrible product / service! I cannot use it for anything…

              • Auto Photo Upload Shortcommings

                Hi, if you have multiple OneDrives, and you do not leave your personal OneDrive as the last accessed OneDrive, then auto photo upload doesn’t work. I have 1 Personal and 2 Business OneDrives on my App, and if I use my Business, and do not change the app back to Personal, then photos don’t upload to my personal OneDrive. Cheers

                • Open Sharepoint version when opening synced files.

                  Currently, when a user opens an Excel file (as an example but it is any file) on a synced library, it opens the local copy of the data. This action is causing syncing issues. The user right now has to right-click the file, view online and then choose to open in Excel.

                  If online, the system should try and open the SharePoint library version instead of the local version. (Or at least give the user the choice of local or Online).

                  I have many users that have reverted to using Google Docs instead of SharePoint because of this issue.

                  • Make the user interface for Get a Link less confusing.

                    Please make the user interface for OneDrive Tenant user to Get a Link less confusing. If we tried to get the link the second time, it comes up with the window that looks like the link that can be used for sharing but it isn't. Tenant users can not tell the difference that it's not the actual link for sharing.

                        • waste of time

                          I've used the app for 1 year and it's a waste of time. It takes forever to sync files gives many errors then re-syncs. After spending 2 days with tech support which was very helpful the app still did not perform.

                          I setup Dropbox in 30 minutes and had my 18 gigs and 15k files synced between my desktop and laptop without a hitch. I recommend Dropbox for $99 per year as opposed to wasting thousands of dollars of my time with a "Free" app.

                          • Create a much more robust automatic upgrade from the old client to the new client as well as stop distributing the old client with O365.

                            I have had several occasions where the old client stopped functioning, came back after the new one was installed and working fine and this is unacceptable. The process for clearing out the old and bringing in the new should be much more straight forward and active versus passive. In addition, the Office 365 suite that users download and install when they first log in should NOT have the old client included since a new client is out and should be the one that is used from now on per Microsoft guidance. Distributing software that is known to not function properly…

                            • Block Up/Downloading Specific File Types feature enabled for Azure AD too!

                              The "OneDrive for Business Deny List of File Types for Sync" feature was just released. This will provide "Administrators the ability to define a list of file types that will be actively blocked from sync functions (upload and download)." This is great and can be achieved by using the Set-SPOTenantSyncClientRestriction cmdlet, however on the description page this cmdlet, it is stated that it is available only if you use on-premise AD: "This capability doesn’t support Microsoft Azure Active Directory (AD) Joined or Workplace Joined devices."

                                      There should be a folder photo view as well.

                                      • OneDrive Resyncing to Different Folder

                                        OneDrive has lost its blinking mind: All my Sharepoint library syncs suddenly disconnect and I have to re-sync. Only this time I'm never asked which folder to sync to so OneDrive starts over completely in a new folder it's never defaulted to in the past. OneDrive is so unstable, unreliable, and frustrating it's hard to believe this is a Microsoft product. Please put some serious effort into OneDrive as it's a promising platform that's insanely unpleasant to have as the linchpin to our business file system.

                                        • Update OneDrive for Business file size limit

                                          Update OneDrive for Business file size limit to be competitive

                                          Increase OneDrive for Business file size beyond the current cap of 15 GB/file.

                                          OneDrive for Business needs to stay competitive.
