  1. Let O365 ODB users offer links to download Office docs, not view them

    I've got clients that want me to send them PowerPoints, Word docs etc that I keep on my OneDrive for Business. I can't, though, as any link I create opens to let them SEE the file, not download it. It's bizarre that I can put a Word doc on my free OneDrive on my Live account but can't on O365, the service I'm paying for. Yes, I know, i could make it a zip file, but for heaven's sake, why make me do all that work? Shouldn't OneDrive for Business be a lesser tool for file sharing amongst businesses than,…

      • Enable customisable slideshow speed on onedrive.com

        The only way to see photos full screen on onedrive.com is to use the slideshow. But this automatically scrolls through the photos way too quickly.

        Please add a customisable speed, preferably with a manual option that only scrolls to the next photo with a key press.

        (Being able to view a photo full screen without using slideshow would also help)

        • Provide an API that allows to update a specific data range in a previously uploaded Excel file

          Suppose that an Excel file is stored in OneDrive. A developer might be able to update a specific range of such a file by means of an API whose signature might be something like:

          updateRange(file_id, starting_cell, data_matrix)

              • One click "Ignore All" option for conflicting files in upload status popup

                HI,

                While uploading using a browser in case of already existing files the upload popup shows two global options "Keep All" and "Replace All"; but there is no option to "Ignore all" such cases; And I have to click the cross mark against each file to clear such files.

                So I propose to introduce a small button at top for "Ignore All" which would ignore all conflicting files. Optionally on the top it should show number of such conflicting files. This will help to keep track of actual number of files already uploaded.

                The above option is a must, in…

                • independent folder views

                  I would like to have independent views for folders on Onedrive.com. An example would be - i'd like to keep my main list of folders in the "detailed view", and once i click on my "Pictures" folder, switch to the "thumbnail view." however, if i click on "Documents," it should be "detailed view." right now the minute i change the view (detailed or thumbnail," ALL folders get switched to that view.

                  • Placeholders and sync only recent files

                    For the first sync, I like placeholders but I can see the disadvantage of not having data when you need it.

                    I think it would be good to have the option to download all the files that have been accessed/opened/written within the last *** days.

                    That way, you can custom download the most important recent files(depending on overall size) AND have placeholders.

                    • Allow users to choose folders to sync in OneDrive Business for Mac

                      In the current beta/preview for OneDrive Business Sync for Mac, the only option is to sync all the files on their OneDrive. This may mean taking up a lot of space on my local hard drive. We should be able to select the OneDrive folders we want to sync, like the OneDrive (personal) users can do (see http://fieldguide.gizmodo.com/delete-local-copies-of-your-synced-cloud-files-to-free-1666099610 for example).

                      • Lift 1000 files upload limit.

                        Many a time I get better speed of uploading or at least immediate upload starting. The 1000 file limit really hurts there. Also suppose I am on a computer without admin access and want to upload my project folder having many short sized files.... I get stuck. When you have a big house, make the roads wide too!!

                          We looked at increasing the file upload limit via the browser to OneDrive.com. The reason we chose 1000 was because we wanted a number that worked well in most browsers.

                          I’d recommend if you are uploading thousands of files, it is easier to do it via the desktop sync client.

                          Will leave this open but likely won’t get to it for a while as it is dependent on browser tech.

                        • Save to my onedrive

                          The files shared by person A to B on onedrive comes in "Shared" menu but person B should be able to move those files to its "Files" for better view, let it eat up extra space(storage space of person B) but all the files will be under one folder.

                          • Modify the behaviour when deleting files

                            When opening files, particularly photos, in the onedrive Android app (and any other for that matter) and deleting them it takes you back to the top of the list every time you delete a file. I propose that it should either open the previous/next file or take you back to the list of files in the exact place where the deleted file used to be. This behaviour should be user-configurable.

                              I would like to upload for example photos to be in the cloud but next i would like to delete them from my hard drive. Now it's not possible - even "online" option in client is not working - it's always downloading everything to disk.

                              • adding coments to fotos shered with onedrive

                                hi !

                                up to short time ago it was possible to easily add comments to Fotos shared on OneDrive

                                now this Option is removed an i suggest to implement it again - because sharing of Fotos is nice - but without comments it makes no sense in most of the cases.

                                if it may not be implemented again, usability of onedrive is reduced for one more step.

                                Kurt

                                        • iPad app redesign (my concept with pictures)

                                          the concept is mostly about visuals. i see OneDrive as a cloud, known for it's user-friendly simple and pretty interface, feature-rich apps and powerful productive tools.
