  1. Fix problem that changes linked Excel file location

    When creating a link between data in two Excel sheets without OneDrive, the program links to the file location on the hard drive. Once OneDrive is in place, Excel forgets the hard drive location and tries to link to the OneDrive web location which results in an error message. This is a MAJOR problem. This renders one of the most vital functionality of Excel useless!

    • Select all option

      Wanted to delete all files in a folder (but didn't want to delete the folder). Had to pick each file manually. A select all feature would be useful.

          • eliminate all restrictions on path length and number of files that can be effectively synced.

            Accurate synchronization is essential. For One-Drive to be a truly effective tool for mobile business users, it must operate transparently as an extension of the user's PC explorer folder structure. Anything less is frustrating, irritating, discouraging and drives us towards iCloud.

                  • Handwriting document editing.

                    Existing features for edditing pdf documents are great. It would be good to include a handwriting feature with an option 'convert to text'. Hanwriting supporting aple pencil with implemented smoothing algorithms for a neat looking notes ( as when using Paper app by 53). Covert pencil shapes into neat geometrical shapes as in OneNote.

                        • Need file Name to be shown while uploading progress is shown.

                          When I have Onedrive.live.com open and I drag and drop files to upload it. Im shown the animated gif of progress of the upload and the count of the upload.

                          Each file being uploaded is shown with a message 'Uploading 1 item to <folder>'

                          As I am queueing up item to upload by dragging and dropping several files.

                          I would like to know what are the names of the files in the upload queue.

                          This helps me to quickly check what files are in the upload queue and not to upload duplicates.

                                I'm really happy that one drive comes with lots of storage for my photos. However, if there was a way that you would back up the high resolution photos on iOS (even though I have the setting enabled that should optimise my local storage with iCloud) that would be amazing. At the same time my wife and I just had a son and I would love to be able to have a camera option within one drive that would let me take photos directly from a shared album so I skip the step of choosing to share etc in the…

                                        When looking at pictures on my phone and tile mode I want the ability to pinch the screen and either increase the size of the picture or decrease the size of the pictures so I can see more tiles on the screen at one time. If you have a lot of photos disability would make it much easier to use the tile view to quickly scan through your contacts.
