      • Pause / resume button on Mac

        OneDrive needs a pause button! Dropbox, Google Drive, etc. all have a way to stop syncing temporarily, like when you're on a Hotel WiFi or transit WiFi and don't really want to have OneDrive using all your bandwidth. OneDrive sync client doesn't have a pause button, which means I have to quit the app, which always seems to cause problems.

        • Onedrive scan multiple pages

          So why can you scan multiple pages with office lens but not with the new scan feature in onedrive? And vise versa regarding renaming the file.

          • OneDrive Files On-Demand

            Allow an online sync only for OneDrive, like Windows 8.1 file explorer did.
            Most of PC don't have enough storage to keep files on HDD.
            That will really improve productivity !

            • Sharing Group Files with External Users

              We urgently need the ability to share folders or files that reside in Group Libraries with External Users. At the moment it is not permitted. Only folders or files within my personal OneDrive for Business library can be shared externally.

                We’re working to provide the same external sharing controls for group-owned sites that we have for Team Sites today. As a workaround today, you can add external members to the group to give them access to these files, and the full feature set is coming in the near future.

              • Allow guest folder access for non-Microsoft accounts

                I would like to be able to share access to a folder so a guest (non-Microsoft account) user can access all the files within that folder.

                Similar to the way Dropbox allows guest folder/file access mentioned below. They also provide password or timed access to guests with Dropbox Pro/Business.

                REF: https://www.dropbox.com/en/help/20
                Q. Can I share files with non-Dropbox users?
                A. You can share files with anyone, even non-Dropbox users, by getting a link to any file or folder. Once you get the link, you can send it by email, Facebook, Twitter, instant message, social networks, wherever you want. You can…

                • Make API for Shared folders a lot better

                  You are able to Access the shared folders by you and others with "https://api.onedrive.com/v1.0/drive/shared" and access each of the elements by /drive/items/{id}

                  What I miss:
                  - Possibility to upload to folders shared by others that I have write access to.
                  - Possiblity to list the permissions for each item (OneDrive.com uses /API/2/GetPermissions)
                  - Possibility to Add/delete permissions as well

                    We haven’t documented the /shared API because we’re still working on making it work better. We’re working on expanding support for more sharing concepts including those you have listed.

                  • Add custom properties to files in OneDrive (personal/live)

                    For the OneDrive consumer version it is currently not availlabe to add customer file data (other than tags and comments). For a new app we would like to store some additional metadata for the files that are uploaded.
                    We would recommend the same approach as https://developers.google.com/drive/v2/reference/properties/insert
