  2. Allow creating bookmarks or quicklinks or favorites against certain files/folder for quick navigation or stream.

    On web interface allow creating bookmarks or favorites against certain files/folder for quick navigation to it. Sometime I have to navigate 5-10 times to reach a particular folder. This means 5-9 different page request.... and each time. I can't keep everything at the base folder.

    Web interface would be much more usable in future while ppl will start putting TBs of data, a large chunk of which will only remain on Onedrive i.e. not synced to local copies. I fear that Many users will shift to Google once they get out something like free space.

  3. Sharing takes to long. Easymode it.

    When I right click a file or folder in Explorer and say "Share with... OneDrive" this is what currently happens.

    1) load skydrive page.
    2) redirect to onedrive page.
    3) click get a link.
    4) click shorten link.
    5) copy link.
    6) paste link.

    To truely replace Dropbox you need to fix this.

    1) Load onedrive first try.
    2a) automatically view share link.
    2b) automatically shorten share link. seriously. se rious lee.
    2c) automatically highlight share link.
    3) i hit ctrl+c and go.

  4. Hide certain folders on certain devices

    Instead of making every folder viewable on every device (some of which you may want to hide for privacy reasons), customize which folders you want to be viewable from which devices. For example, be able to hide a folder of photos on a shared Xbox One.

  6. Enable SharePoint library syncing on OneDrive for Business mobile clients

    Our clients love the SharePoint library syncing feature for the PC with OneDrive for Business, but then they're disappointed when they can't do the same on their iPad or Android phone.

  7. Add Browsers Favorites list in OneDrive Web page

    As favorites are synchronized between all devices using OneDrive, it could be cool to get the list in OneDrive web page.
    From OneDrive, we could organize our favorites and from this page we could share our favorites with pears and add comments or decide to share one favorite on Yammer, FB, Twitter, etc...

  9. Make offline viewing an option for integrated desktop, including enterprise edition.

    Allow an option for online viewing only that *does not* maintain a local copy of the file. On enterprise computers, others admins may be able to log in and access your files and this may not desired by the file owner. But if one chooses, "online only", then there is no local cache and when a document is added, it is uploaded, but still, the local copy is removed when the document is closed.

  12. onedrive new version and folio

    I get the need for a consistent view, use case.
    BUT... I like to offline it all on the PC(this should stay as a option for desktop even if in a non-mainstream delivery)

    Maybe a simple "oneportfolio" where you can set a max for the size
    1-2... whatever gig across devices and the files are added to your mobile portfolio. then to add or remove files in folio from any device and that just occurs on all.

    I get placeholders are non-descript thats why my PC syncs all.

    entering onedrive view or folio view is in essence the same structure

  13. Provide search functionality for the Xbox One app.

    Browsing through a large folder of video files is ridiculous on the Xbox One (and probably elsewhere). It would be great to be able to actually type a search for filename/metadata. And, of course, to be able to type it using SmartGlass rather than just an onscreen keyboard would be even better!

  14. Make available offline option for mobile

    All the mobile phone and tablet are getting enormous built in drives. Give us the same option that PCs have so we don't have to wait that buffering time frame to show off our pictures.

  15. Make Available Offline including files added from another device in the future.

    Currently, OneDrive features making individual folders offline with one caveat:

    "If you have multiple PCs, a file can be online-only on one PC and available offline on another. Any files you added to OneDrive from your PC or previously opened on your PC are automatically available offline on that PC. Any files you created on the OneDrive website or added to OneDrive from another device are online-only on your PC."

    I wish there was the option to allow you to make a folder available offline and for it to auto sync files that were later added by another device later.

  16. Viewing cover art of ebooks in One Drive

    Allow the user to view cover art of ePub files stored . I think PDF cover art is viewable, but displaying ePub artwork, would enhance the One Drive service and really make viewing and accessing ePub files for the user much easier.

  17. Desktop View only option

    I like to know where are my files, and are they still on same location..

    When you stuck with onedrive desktop app, like "checking for changes" and take for few days to sync.. and you don't know how to stop it, what is changed etc.. because in moste case you did something simple (like moving folder to another location) and it take for few days to "check for chages" - for this, at last let us know the progress of checking... or enable it to do something manually to help this app with problem.

    Or any other problem when you…

  18. Let me attach a file to an email without involving Drive and pictures that aren't related

    I did. You are not allowing us to use our computers as we should because you want to control me and mess everything up.
    Can I not pick a picture and delete it ? You wont let me.

    tell us more  ·  Casey Penk responded

    Hi there, can you tell us more about your feature request? How would you want this feature to work? Thanks.

  20. Merge Work Folders, OneDrive, and OneDrive for Business

    I feel like the whole offering with OneDrive is really fragmented and needs to be simplified. There are a lot of good features spread across different products that should really be bought together a lot better. I wish there was just one app that users could install on clients for both business and personal, with some way to switch accounts.

    Anyway I have some customers that I am trying to move away from Google Apps and Dropbox to Office 365. One feature customers are really keen for, and would really help to convince them to move, is a way that…
