  1. Automatically Manage OneDrive Sync Settings Across Multiple Devices For a user

    As it currently stands, if a user is using multiple devices (like a desktop and then a laptop for field work) and he uses OneDrive to sync his files to the cloud then the folders to be synced setting is not replicated across all his devices automatically.

    That is the user would have to set a new folder to be synced on his desktop and then open his laptop to do the same. This is tedious and unnecessary since he is logged in with the same account on all these client instances and their settings should automatically sync across all…

          • onedrive web always stalls after uploading few files - hangs on "uploading *** items" for ever (win 10 chrome and Edge)

            i am trying to upload my photos to onedrive via the web. I dont do it via the windows sync app as I dont want this folder synced as its too big.

            I know all the fragile problems with onedrive, and can confirm that:

            all my file names are < 8 chars + ".jpg"
            None of the filenames nor folders have any chars other than ascii
            There is only one level deapth (a directory with files in it)
            I have 300GB of space left in my 1TB (so its not a space issue).
            Files are all < 10MB, so its…

            • Additional information (apart from name) on sharing

              We have a Problem on sharing documents with others.While entering a name in sharing page, some suggestions comes up.

              The problem is, that some people are named the same. For example some people are called Thomas Müller. On sharing all of them are mentioned and it isn't possible to see, which entry it the right one.

              It would be nice, if a user can see department or something else from Active Directory on sharing suggestion.

                  We confirmed that the setting of “Block syncing of specific file types” in OneDrive Admin Center blocks uploading files from Sync folder, but it does not block downloading files from the Cloud even when setting extensions.

                  In order to improve security, I hope this behavior will be corrected to block downloading files from the Cloud as well under the condition above.

                  • Online-only support for Mac OS X

                    Hello! I really like the online-only feature that OneDrive has for Windows, and I'm sad that the same feature isn't available for Mac. The files I have are eating up space on my hard drive, and using selective sync doesn't cut it (the large size of my OneDrive is due to images and .PSD documents which I open in bulk for image editing, and are a hassle to download from the website every time I simply want to use them.)

                    I'd really appreciate it if this feature were implemented, since I'm running low on space! If not, I'm probably going…

                      • Thumbnails not generated in OneDrive folders anymore

                        OneDrive on Windows 10 no longer generates file thumbnails in picture folders. I've tried a dozen fixes, so it is directly related to the OneDrive App and Windows 10. Windows 7 is actually working fine with the same files and OneDrive folders. So there is a recent Windows 10 Update that has disabled the ability for Windows 10 to build a successful thumbnail cache. This is happening on multiple machines but only Windows 10 and not Windows 7.

                        • Office files OneDrive sync issues since latest update of Windows

                          Since the last Windows update, I have seen inconsistent OneDrive behavior with Office files:
                          - Even though "Use Office 2016 to sync office files" is turned off, Office still tries to directly upload files to OneDrive when closing a file
                          - Much frequent occurrences of the "You now have two copies of a file" when saving office files, which force to waste time in cleaning up the duplicated files.

                          For the first issue, I temporarily changed the "Use Office 2016 to sync office files" to on, then back to off. That seemed to have stopped the upload to OneDrive while…

                          • Allow substituting a drive letter for the OneDrive for business folder(s).

                            We have a database that uses drive letters for folders. Using the "subst" command will do just that, substitute a drive letter for the long OneDrive path. However, this creates the folder "System Volume Information" - a hidden, read-only system folder that crashes OneDrive every time! Make OneDrive ignore system files! Allow a drive letter substitution for the long OneDrive path!

                            • File Renaming

                              This latest version of OneDrive for iPad has robbed users of the ability to rename a file or folder by just adjusting a character or number in the existing title. E.g. by adjusting a date or adding an additional letter. You now have to type out the new title in full every time.
                              This is a retrograde step and will cause many users much frustration.

                                Could you please add support for .heic as iOS 11 uses this format and when iOS 11 releases all apple phones will only use this format. As I am on an iOS 11 beta I have noticed my photos are starting to become unviewable in the photos tab and shown as blank .heic files in the files tab. This is a problem that will get more urgent as it gets nearer iOS 11 release as of now for anybody on the beta programme one drive photos is unusable. Please update! Thanks

                                  OneNote Online の改行情報を含むcharacter stringをコピーしてテキストに張り付ける​とオリジナルにはふくまれていない改行が含まれてしまう事象を解消してほしい。

                                  As a current behavior, the format of the files will be corrupted because of the unexpected Line break which is not included in the original is appeared when copying the character string including the Line break and pasting it to text in OneNote Online.

                                  Therefore, we would like to improve the function that enables pasting the selected range accurately to text in OneNote Online.

                                  Thank you for your continued support.​

                                      Provide the ability for OneDrive Administrators to flag a folder in individual users cloud based OneDrive for Business libraries as “un-shareable” (protected) so that the end user would have to move the file to another folder before they could share it. This would enable our users to put sensitive (private) files on their OneDrive for Business without the worry if accidentally sharing it.
