  1. Enable fingerprint as passcode

    Please enable finger print unlock as pass code instead of standard pass code, just like drop box does. No offense! It's just my suggestion.

    • Anonymous guest link in OneDrive for Business App

      In my company employees often need to share files stored in their OneDrive for Business folder with external people, like suppliers and customers.

      From the computer they can create a link with no sign-in required, but from the mobile app this is not possible. Because they share files from the mobile with a lot of people they often get in trouble because the recipient don't have an Microsoft account and can't open the link.

      Please update the OD4B app so that it is possible to use this feature from mobile.

        Thanks for the suggestion. We’re planning to bring the same kind of links you can create now through the website to our mobile apps.

      • Sync overlay icons "ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers" limit

        There is a limit of 15 overlay icons in windows 10. Installing dropbox or google drive causes problems with sync overlay icons not appearing in onedrive (or vice versa). Why not make developers use the existing, microsoft sync overlay icons, rather than bringing their own? The 15 sync icons in "ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers" would be sufficient if Microsoft required that any third party sync application such as dropbox or google drive used the same icons. After all, onedrive and dropbox both show exactly the same information in the icon overlays - synced, not synced, sync in progress and sync error.

        • Include TAGS in API

          OneDrive adds a number of Tags against a photo like, Beach, Cat, ...
          When querying meta data against a Photo, it would be great to also include these TAGS.

          • Ability to download a folder on the Windows Phone app

            I use Onedrive for many things, including for hosting my music on the cloud. It allows me to quickly download some music on my phone from the cloud. Today I realised that it is not possible to download a folder from the WP app, only files. So in my example, I had to open the folder (an album), to select all the songs in it, then to download it.

            Not a big deal, but it made me realize it would be an easy improvement to allow the user to download the folder directly.

              We’re planning to support the ability to take a folder of files offline. Keep an eye out.

            • API access to Albums

              I want to be able to access, read and edit a user's Albums via the OneDrive API.

              I am talking about the Albums which are not folders and were announced in January 2015. https://blog.onedrive.com/introducing-an-all-new-way-to-view-manage-and-share-your-photos-in-onedrive/

              • Allow automatic upload of photos and video from mobile clients to OneDrive for Business

                Would like to see complete feature parity between OneDrive and OneDrive for Business - well except that the latter would have everything that OneDrive personal had plus some.

                Automatic upload of photos and video is one of the OneDrive Personal features that should be added to OneDrive for Business. I realize the technologies are very different on the backend, but it needs to be done.

                • Allow users to subscribe to notifications on a shared folder

                  OneDrive should allow users to subscribe to a shared folder and receive notifications when new content is added to that shared folder.

                  This way you can share a folder once and keep adding content to it.

                    Def important feature for our service. This one is behind making shared folders sync, but on the roadmap for sure.
