  1. Open in Client by Default

    Seeking option for OneDrive documents to open from the web-browser app of OneDrive into the full (installed on the OS) program by default, rather than opening into the the web browser application and opening the document in the full (installed on the OS) program from there.

    (For example, opening an .xlsx file in the OneDrive web-broswer application OR from a shared link would open Excel, and not a new web-browser tab with the Excel app.)

    • Create a unified search for OneDrive / Sharepoint files. I have three different URLs that I have to sue to search for OneDrive files. Why?

      As a user, I would like to be able to search for ALL documents (mine and those shared with me) in one place. I go to OneDrive in my portal and search for a document. Can't find it. I search in the company SharePoint and nothing. I had to go to my team Sharepoint to find it. Why so many places? Why can't I find it in the company search but can in the team? Please fix AND make better.

      • CPU usage is very high with 10.14 Mojave beta

        OneDrive app 18.091.0506.0007 with MacOS 10.14 beta 18A326g on MacBook Pro ... I have noticed that the OneDrive app when started on boot pulls significant CPU time as well as associated energy usage (fan runs continuously). This draw continues after OneDrive completes initial sync. If I quite the app and then restart app, CPU and energy usage drops to a couple of percent which is what I observe with macOS 10.3.5 on my iMac.

        • Provide the feature to export the audit log acquired from PowerShell on OneDrive for Business UI

          *English follows Japanese
          ■Title(件名):
          PowerShell にて検出した監査ログの情報を OneDrive for Business 上に出力する機能の要望

          Provide the feature to export the audit log acquired from PowerShell on OneDrive for Business UI
          ***************
          ■Description(内容):

          PowerShell のスクリプトにて監査ログを取得した際に、取得したログ情報を OneDrive for Business の UI 上に出力する機能を提供してほしい。
          ローカル PC 上にエクスポートするのではなく、Web 上に保存できるようにしてほしい。

          We hope you to provide the feature to export the log information to OneDrive for Business UI when we acquire the audit log by running PowerShell script.

          Saving the log information on the web is preferable to exporting it on the local PC.

          Thank you for your consideration.

              • Stop bothering me

                How many times do I need to dismiss the report problem message before you figure out that there isn’t a problem? I’m just walking!

                    Making money online seems impossible,especially if you don't know how much about it.But,it is easier than you might imagine,as long as you have the desire to make money.
                    This article contains details that will help you to do just that.if owning your own blog is a bit time consuming,but you would still like to write to earn money,think about writing articles for existing blogs. There are several out there,including web logs and paper post,with a little research and bit of initiative,you could get set up with one of these sites and start earning money in no time.
                    Consider the things…

                    • Integrate Microsoft's SyncToy with OneDrive

                      Microsofts's SyncToy has been a staple app for me in syncing files on my laptop hard drive to an external hard drive. It seems this software could be integrated into OneDrive so that those of us who want 100% certainty that our files saved to OneDrive (in the cloud) are also accessible when we are working offline (from our Laptop\PCs native hard drive).

                        • OneDrive Files On-Demand bug

                          I've noticed a bug on multiple instances in our environment. Syncing with a SharePoint site, using OneDrive build 18.091.0506.0007 and running on Windows 10 Enterprise b1709 and b1802.

                          With Files On-Demand enabled, and when navigating to any folder in the site, it automatically downloads the files in that folder even though none were set to 'Always Keep on this Device'. Also, when right clicking these files and clicking 'Free Up Space', it switches back to the cloud (online only) and one second later, re-downloads them.

                          Tested on a newly imaged machine with no other software on it. Windows Defender isn't…

                                I would like to inform you the problem that the thumbnails of image files are not displayed when we turn on Files On-Demand.
                                It affects us a lot because we are using jpg files to manage the progress of our work.

                                In order to use Files On-Demand feature more conveniently, I hope the performance of File On-Demand will be improved to display thumbnails.

                                  Real time file synchronization failure
                                  ***************
                                  ■Description(内容):
                                  同期フォルダーの更新の反映がなかなかされず、1つ前のバージョンのファイルが開けてしまい、閉じると最新のバージョンに更新されることが頻繁に起きます。
                                  共同で編集する際に混乱を招くため、同期フォルダーの更新は即時され、かつ更新前のデータを開けない動作になるよう希望いたします。

                                  Often times, because real time synchronization fails, even after the updates are made to the files, older version file would open up, and it gets updated only once older version is closed.

                                  As this is something causing users confusion as they are working on collaborative editing, it is nice to see precise real time synchronization and prevent older version of the files gets opened up as well.

                                  Thank you for your consideration.

                                    Microsoft Teams でチャット機能を利用しファイルの共有を行うと、共有元のユーザーの OneDrive for Business の領域にファイルが保存されるが、この一連の動作を繰り返すうちに容量を知らずのうちに使ってしまうことを防ぐため、予め他サービスから OneDrive for Business 領域に保存されるデータの容量上限を設けたい。

                                    When a user is sharing files via chat on Microsoft Teams, those files are stored on the space of shared user’s OneDrive for Business but if the user share files multiple times, the space will be consumed without being notified.

                                    To prevent having this situation, we would like to set in advance the maximum space for storing shared files on OneDrive for Business.

                                    Thank you for your considerations.

                                        • Synchronize Albums and Tags between OneDrive photos and the Windows 10 Photos app

                                          When I create albums in the Photos app or in OneDrive, please sync those across the two platforms. Same thing for tags.
