      • Online-only support for Mac OS X

        Hello! I really like the online-only feature that OneDrive has for Windows, and I'm sad that the same feature isn't available for Mac. The files I have are eating up space on my hard drive, and using selective sync doesn't cut it (the large size of my OneDrive is due to images and .PSD documents which I open in bulk for image editing, and are a hassle to download from the website every time I simply want to use them.)

        I'd really appreciate it if this feature were implemented, since I'm running low on space! If not, I'm probably going…

              • Change Menulet Icon Color for Sync Errors

                When sync errors occur, nothing is indicated on the icon that a something is wrong. The user has to click on the icon to see the sync errors. I propose that we make the icon entirely red when a sync error occurs, to get the user to pay attention and hopefully click on the icon to see the sync errors.

                  • On Mac access shared folders/files directly inside Finder.

                    How can we collaborate between PC and Mac users if on Mac you can't see shared files/folders inside the Finder ? Other collaboration solutions allow it so why not in onedrive :-(

                    • Properly support the macOS file system (special characters, aliases, symbolic links, case sensativity, etc.)

                      OneDrive is 99% useless on a Mac because the macOS file system is not properly supported:

                      1) Files are limited to Windows naming conventions. I't impractical to rename 100's of files to complete a sync

                      2) Aliases get copied as unusable files and symbolic links are ignored.

                      3) If the drive is formatted as one of Apple's/unix's case-sensitive formats, they're unusable with OneDrive.

                      These are the deal killers, items like support for tags, etc. would be nice also.

                        I have been running OneDrive App on Mac OS El Capitan (10.11.6) for a couple of years without issue. It was last automatically updated on 8 May 2018 via Apple's Mac OS App Store. Today 20 May 2018 when I booted my MacBook, OneDrive app kept on crashing on loading. I uninstalled the app and then reinstalled via the Appstore, and same problem. I used CleanMyMac app to uninstall and remove all associated fiIes, deleted the OneDrive folded and reinstalled, and OneDrive sill crashes immediately after opening. I even downloaded the app via the Microsoft website and reinstalled, and still…

                          If the internet gets disconnected while copying a large file, I don't think it resumes copying from where it left off. This feature is badly required.

                          • Fix this strange behaviour - When paused, context menus disappear, can't share and can't open preferences

                            Currently when sync is paused in the Mac app, it shuts down the entire app. No context menu, no status icons next to files and folders, can't share and can't open the app preferences.

                            No only this, when you restart sharing it takes a right long time to get going with the wheel of death dancing in your face.

                            Why?

                            I have a hunch that the second part is to do with the first part. I suggest you fix this strange behaviour, so users can still share and access the preferences while paused and not have to wait for 'something'…

                                    Give users the option to disable the automatic addition of icons to the macOS Finder sidebar from within OneDrive options. If I remove the icons from the sidebar manually, they're readded every time OneDrive for macOS restarts.

                                    • Find a better way to make it possible for the OneDrive for Mac app to update itself automatically.

                                      Currently I get a popup from the App Store "some updates could be installed because programs are running" or something like that. I have to open App Store to find which app it is - most of the time it's one drive. I have to explicitly quit one drive, update, and restart it. Would be nice if it just worked without my intervention.

                                      • I'd like the Mac client to support file sync on demand the same as the Windows client currently does.

                                        I'd like the Mac client to support file sync on demand the same as the Windows client currently does. We have clients who sync with many different Sharepoint sites and this way they could do so without using disk space until they actually need the file.

                                        Thanks!

                                        • Add Option to Enter Password Directly via Menubar Item OSX

                                          Be able to directly enter a new password via the Menubar item rather than wait for the client to timeout. That way the client will actively be trying to look for the new password you've (say) set online via a different route rather than trying and failing to sync and therefore only requesting a new password after 2-3mins.
