  1. Give the user access to files that are unsynced. Viewing the sync problems does not show a complete list.

    For several days now, OneDrive for Business shows it is syncing 30 files. Yesterday I left my machine on for several hours and still we're at the same 30 files. Currently there is no way to see what those 30 files are. Perhaps the names are too long...who knows. I cannot fix the problem with those files because I do not have enough information. We need a way to see a list of yet to be synced, or unsynced, files.

      • Need way to see full file name in list view.

        Press and hold in list view, let full file name pop up?
        Allow single column list view for files in iPad?
        Allow file name to wrap onto second line in list view in iPhone?
        40-odd character limit way too short.

        • Display full file names within the iOS oneDrive app

          The prior feedback thread with the same title, with 139 votes, was inappropriately closed. There is no way to view file names longer than 40-odd characters in the iPad and IPhone apps other than 1) Going to Details and then "Rename This File" or 2) downloading the file. Full file name used to show in Details. Now no file name shows in Details. Need 1) full file name in Details; 2) single column list view in iPad/tablet apps; and 3) file name wrap onto second line in iPhone/smartphone apps.

                  • stop autocreating folders in OneDrive - I DO NOT WANT folders names Photos, Music, Documents, etc

                    Stop forcing folders like Photos, Music and Documents be created in OneDrive. If I want folders with those names then I am fully capable of creating them. If I delete the Documents folder then I want it deleted----DO NOT recreate it only for it to sit empty.

                      • Please allow background photo uploads when the screen turns off!

                        Hey there,
                        I'm getting really frustrated that as soon as my iPhone screen turns off the OneDrive app stops uploading. Can we please fix this? I'm happy to keep the app open when uploading, but I don't think that it should stop just because my screen times out.

                        Cheers
                        A

                        • Video editor

                          People should be able to edit videos and the app could be called one drive plus and it could be bought for a few bucks thanks for taking your time to read this.

                            • "Add and sync shared folders to your OneDrive functionality" doesn't work in OneDrive for business.

                              Hi guys,

                              i am wondering that "Add and sync shared folders to your OneDrive functionality" doesn't work in OneDrive for business. I cant find "add to my OneDrive" in my business application (www.thurrott.com/.../share.jpg). So files that shared with me doesn't show on my MacBook folder.

                              Can you help me and answer when this feature will be implement in OneDrive for business.

                              Thanks,

                                • show posts for OnrDrive on opening the app

                                  OneDrive app offers a communication for improvement with the app developers by posting new ideas.
                                  I have noticed that a lot of posts share the same concerns. But, it is not easy for anyone to watch all new idea listed (example category OneDrive which has up to now I am posting, 1055 posts). This applies, specially, for users that installed the app recently. So, an option to vote for a new post inside the app, would be an asset to support of voting for new ideas posted.

                                  Moreover, if a window pops up on entering OneDrive app which is offering…
