  1. Improve the feature of synchronizing more than 100,000 items on a stable basis for OneDrive.

    I am aware of the behavior the restriction mentioned that the sync performance will possibly deteriorate when the stored items in the library exceed 100,000 items more. However, I need to operate this process frequently so that I wish the feature will be improved enables sync more than 100,000 items on a stable basis as soon as possible.

    Although I have concerns about if the synchronization is going to be impossible to proceed unexpectly, but so as MS described as "We are working on optimization of OneDrive to improve processing of many Libraries." below the Reference information.

    • Renable inheritance when removing limited users (remove users access from all files)

      In OneDrive, on a Document Library, you can go to library permissions, show limited users and remove a limited user. This appears to recursively remove the user access on all child objects in the library. This is definitely useful in the scenario e.g., I want to completely remove Bob's access to all files. The downside though is that currently, even if the remove on child object effectively leaves the object without unique permissions inheritance is not re-enabled. It would be beneficial to add a check during this removal to renable inheritance where appropriate (i.e., file and nearest parent with unique…

      • Camera Upload

        Please make camera Upload available in OneDrive for Business. We are in the construction industry and were using Dropbox previously with the camera uploads which is a necessity. We experimented with OneDrive Personal prior to purchasing OneDrive accounts which also has the option for camera upload. We fully expected OneDrive for Business to also have the option for camera uploads and are disappointed that it doesn’t. Please make camera uploads available in OneDrive for Business as soon as possible.

          • OneDrive integration with iOS 11 Files App

            When will OneDrive integrate with iOS 11 Files App. Both Google Drive, Dropbox support integration with Files App and the ability to drag files into other apps, like Apple email app. Apple iCloud also provides the functionality.

            • Standalone update for Onedrive Files-On-Demand

              Firstly I want to thank all those involved in rolling out the Files-on-Demand feature for OneDrive it is exactly what our organization needed. I look forward to not having to straddle so many solutions just to cover our file sharing needs.

              Unfortunately in order to get this feature all the computers in our organization need to be able to update to the Creators edition, we have a 99% windows 10 environment however some computers running windows 10 are not able to upgrade to this latest version because of some hardware incompatibilities.

              If we as office 365 admins had access to…

              • Video shows black screen on Android OneDrive app

                When I play videos one the Android OneDrive app it just shows a black screen. The sound works fine. Everything is up to date and the video is a mp4 (This problem extends to all videos in various formats).
                I'm using a OnePlus 3T (Oreo), but it seems that there are many people with different phones with this problem according to a quick search.

                • office file

                  Enable to possibility to download file shared with guest access, instead of open them directly in the browser. So use OneDrive also as file transfer, for example create a button just for transfer big files in order to allow recipient to download it. I think this feature would improve hugely the OneDrive usage specially in business. Currently we have to suggest some workaround to do it but this discourage our users to use it, it would be great to have a simple button that do it please. thanks

                  • Fix the landscape view for pdfs in iOS iPad

                    After the last update the landscape form of reading the pdfs books in Ipad is really bad. Now we have two pages in the same screen, not just one as was in the past. Is there any function that returns to the old display format? You can see the problem in the photo attached. I’ve alredy tried the Forum help and they send me here. Please, fix this bug because I work with pdfs in iPad.

                      • Allow the user to set/select the languages for a sharing notification email when sending to the recipient by the setting.

                        Currently, I am aware of the behavior that the sharing notification is sent to the user automatically in the language of recipient's settings. I hope the language of the sharing notification email can be selected freely by the user who shared documents or folders.

                            Please increase the file upload limit from 15GB! With ever increasing file sizes from the media workflow, especially with 4K content, the 15GB limit can be quite a bummer at times!

                                  When looking at users who work in many locations across our organization, it would be helpful to have a centralized dashboard to look at what clients are syncing and include the following information: last time client synchronized, are there files that are failing to upload/download and the status of the client (sync pending, sync complete, etc.).

                                    Now we frequently use the OneDrive Usage Status Report that can be confirmed from Admin center of Office 365, however it has become the data of nearly one year is outputting even it should be that the default of outputting record of the past 180 days.

                                    • Select Folder to Sync from Phone to PC.

                                      I want to be able to sync files to onedrive from my Phone the same way I can on Desktop.

                                      As it works now, it just looks for photos and backs up some folders/apps.

                                      I want to be able to choose a folder to sync to the cloud, just like on desktop, and it would be synced to the cloud exactly as the folder is, and any changes made to it would sync as well, just like on desktop.

                                      This way I can have multiple photo folders synced to my PC that are NOT all lumped together into "camera roll"

                                      • OneDrive indexing for WIndows Search

                                        I am not sure I am at the right place to post this, but since some Microsoft engineer said here would be a more appropriate place for my post in Microsoft Community, here it goes (don't shoot me if this is considered cross posting):

                                        Prior to installing the Fall Creators Update on my Windows 10 machine last week, all my files stored in any of my OneDrive subfolders were indexed and fully searchable through Windows Search. For example, entering ‘content:management‘ in the upper right search box would return all the documents (PDF, Word, etc.) that contained the word ‘management’.

                                        Right…

                                        • Allow OneDrive app on Android to be moved to SD card. At the very least, store the cache and data on Secondary Storage.

                                          Unfortunately, I cannot keep this Android app because the app cannot be moved to secondary storage. I'm like every Android user and have limited available space on primary storage. Because of the OS and other required data that must be stored on primary storage, I have to move apps to my SD card after I install them in order to make room. I understand that users must first install apps to primary storage on Android. That's fine. Users should then be able to move apps like this to Secondary Storage in App Storage Settings. This app does not allow that.…
