      • Keep the date of creation of the document always the same. It changes every time we open a document.

        It would be an improvement if the day of creation of a document is always kept the same. The way it is now it changes every time we open a document. It is allright if the date of editings changes every time,but not the date of the original creation. Thank you.

        • Customized MS office 365 as per customer requirement.

          There would be customized MS office 365 so that customer can decide which office application/one drive/ SharePoint / Lync /yammer/delve they wants and their customized storage capacities as per their requirements. So that Small or Midsize organizations can utilize it efficiently and effectively. Some features to be added like HR/Accounting/Material Management modules/apps so that small or midsize organization can use like as ERP at minimum cost.

            If on your computer you have the onedrive client running, from the web version of one drive you can access your computer files which is very usefull, but from the mobile version of onedrive you can't do that and it would be REALLY usefull to be able to do that.

            • Multiple folders with same name issue

              If I use OneDrive.com in desktop and click create folder than type the folder name and click enter several times it creates multiple folders with same name, then it causes a lot of issues to remove the duplicated folders.

              • Passcode unlock on Windows

                Add PIN code security when selecting which folders to sync on Windows.

                It will limit the amount of damage an attacker can do to your Cloud files assuming he gains access to your unlocked Windows machine.

                    • Offline access on Surface Pro

                      I have a Surface Pro 64 GB and want to put all my files in One Drive but they currently exceed 500GB (these are all work files no media) I know I can keep all my files in OD, but I cant sync them all. One idea would be to cache and sync the file structure so that they could be retrieved on demand. Otherwise this severely limits the usefulness to the growing army of Surface USers

                      • Local file compression/uncompression

                        Files could be compressed in local before they're uploaded (and downloaded compressed and in local be uncompressed) for faster transfer, i.e., a plain text file can consume 50 times less data transfer and time

                              • Add the ability to recognize the same song on two different albums without needing to rename them

                                When uploading my music to OneDrive for X-Box Music, I have two songs on two different albums that OneDrive thinks are the same song, even though they're on different albums. I would like OneDrive to recognize this difference and allow both without renaming them, or upload both, rename, but show me the metadata track #, title, and album instead so it still looks the same to me.

                                • Timezone OneDrive (Web) is incorrect.

                                  The OneDrive (like Outlook) has a serious problem with time. In Outlook I can't set my correct time, he always adds extra hours when choosing my time zone, and the OneDrive too. I just edit a document the 5 pm. And the OneDrive says it was edited the 10 pm!

                                  This is an old problem, you do not intend to solve?

                                    I use CloudBacko (http://free.cloudbacko.com?r=1d) as an automatic backup solution, then I do some manual backup once a month on a local hard drive. But I'd like to skip that manual thing and get instead a second automatic solution.
