  1. Enable long file path for OneDrive for Business

    My 1GB of storage part of my Office 365 Business subscription is more or less useless because I get the "File name too long" issue with most of my files.

    The following request is now closed as completed but I have voted on it with OneDrive for Business in mind (and I'm sure a lot of other other users did!).
    https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/6325774-enable-long-file-paths-aka-file-name-too-long-p

    So, OneDrive for Business users, make your voice heard and vote for this!

    • 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…

        • Automatically creating an album

          Allow us to disable OneDrive automatically creating an album please. This annoys a lot of people, including me, and should be optional.

            • Shorten Link should use HTTPS-based URLs

              In this era of the secure web it is difficult to understand why the shorten link functional on OneDrive uses an HTTP-based URL. Wrap it before you use it with TLS/SSL!

              • "Sync online only" for OneDrive

                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 !

                    • 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.

                        • 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’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.

                              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
