  1. 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).

  2. OneDrive Delay Logoff During Sync

    In Educational Labs and VDI, it would be beneficial to be able to hold/hang the logoff process while OneDrive finishes syncing.

    In both scenarios, users can logon with their employee/student account, and we can make OneDrive available to them via GPO. However, if a user generates a large amount of files/data and then logs off, the sync stops. This could be problematic for several reasons:

    1) It would be detrimental because in many Lab/VDI environments, the user profile is volatile and data would be lost.

    2) Even in a less volatile environments, the user might want to save the files…

  3. Duplicates created when opening documents (iOS)

    Offine-avaliable files opened while online and causes the iOS app do display a duplicate file that can not be deleted, opened or changed.

    This happens every time an offline-available document is opened, edited and closed. These files can not be deleted, marked or edited in any way. Only way to remove these duplicates is to reinstall the OneDrive app, it is not solved with deleting cache.

    The original can still be edited but new duplicates are created upon closing/uploading the changes. These duplicates only exist on the device (does not appear in sharepoint or other devices) and i suspect these…

  5. Replace with DropBox

    Purchase Dropbox. Fire everyone involved with OneDrive. Replace OneDrive with DropBox.

    OneDrive is a total disaster. I spend 3 hours a week reloading OneDrive on the 40 computers I manage. I do just about nothing else except look at each computer to see if OneDrive is running. WE TRUSTED our company to Microsoft. We are screwed.

    We lost data with OneDrive. We lost time with OneDrive....

  7. Provide the availability to change the second language setting of the site freely and the language setting on the user profile all at once.

    Provide the availability to change the second language setting of the site freely and the language setting on the user profile all at once.

    ■Description(内容):
    母国語のみがわかるユーザーの場合、言語の変更を行う場合にもテナントで設定している​​​​母国語以外の言語が読めないと設定変更が行えないため、OneDrive for Business の言語設定をユーザー作成時に管理者が行う方法、およびサイトの第二言語の設定、ユーザープロファイル上の言語設定を管理者が一括で変更する機能を要望いたします。​​​

    Currently, I am concerned that the users have a difficulty in changing the language settings due to they cannot understand other than their native languages in which set by tenant unit. So that, I hope the feature will be improved that allows the admin to individually select the language setting of OneDrive for Business in case of adding users.

  8. Allow family members to add files to a shared family folder structure

    The notion of a Family doesn't properly exist. Each family member (having their own OneDrive account) should be able to add files and folders to a common shared family folder structure. So you have family pictures, family documents, etc. Now, as main account holder, I share the family pictures, but my wife can't add the pictures she made during our holiday into the shared folder. If she does that, they are only visible to her and not to me / the rest of the family.

    Creating and supporting a true Family concept would enable huge marketing options as well as…

  9. Allow uploads greater than 15GB

    If the user has the capacity, uploads shouldn’t be limited to 15 GB. I can’t store a backup on OneDrive because it’s 20 GB. Google drive doesn’t have that problem; iCloud has a 50 GB limit.

  11. Local Disk Storage Limits

    Save our users from themselves.

    We desperately need a solution to limit how much data is synced to the local disk by the OneDrive Sync Client. In an Enterprise scenario, where it's beneficial to allow large amounts of storage in the cloud, there is often not enough local storage to accommodate a user's full data store. Selective sync doesn't satisfy organizational concerns about using up local disk space. Even files-on-demand is leaving a lot of trepidation at the management level. Users will typically just choose to sync everything without thinking of the consequences.

    I propose an enforceable policy (GPO or…

  12. Camera Upload- choose destination folder

    So I really appreciate the camera upload feature. Would it be possible to let users set a destination folder by choice? I like to organize all my photos and it's not easy when I end up with a few thousand in one folder after forgetting to go in for a few months. Right now they just seem to end up somewhere random and I'd like to be more deliberate.
    Thanks and keep up the hard work!

  13. Implement the function/option to hide the [+] icon which displayed on the left side screen of OneDrive for Business.

    I am aware that each user can create an Office 365 group by clicking the [+] icon which appears on the left side screen of OneDrive for Business. To prevent this, I carried out cmdlets to control from the Microsoft Planner, therefore Microsoft Teams also became unusable at the same time.

    Then I have been changing the settings to activate Teams, however, each user is still able to create Office 365 groups from their own OneDrive for Business screen.
    For the ease of management, I hope the feature will be implemented enables controlling to hide the [+] icon (to create…

  15. Newly create files in OneDrive folders out of reach when on metered connection

    When I am on a metered connection, OneDrive pauses syncing, which is great in principle. One consequence of this, however, is that I can no longer new folders and files created by office applications in OneDrive folder. For example, if I create a new file or folder in Word or Excel, I cannot even find it with the File Explorer! The only way I can access it, for example to attach it to an e-mail, is through the office application concerned and by saving it in another spot, say, the desktop.
    This is a very annoying bug that makes OneDrive…

  17. Limit Concurrent Uploads

    The ability to set a limit on the number of concurrent uploads would make uploading larger files so much easier and so so so less painful. With your abysmally slow upload speeds (taken 4 hours to upload 1gb) and constant crashing of the app (Mac OSX keeps signing out/disconnecting from the server if left unattended and/or I try use my computer for other things while its uploading in the background) I have had so many hash fails which is a waste of bandwidth and time.

    Instead of having 6-7 files getting to 90% and then the app crashes, I could…

  19. Search only inside current folder

    It would be great if I could open a folder and search for things only inside that folder instead of always searching my entire OneDrive no matter where I am looking. Would make it much easier to find specific files from a mobile device.
