  1. but I'm not a guest contributor - provide link to login

    When a colleague (within same corporate onedrive contract) sends me a file to edit, I open the link to find that I'm guest contributor. This prevents me from editing. So, why not

    Have a link to log-in to onedrive from the "guest contributor" state (e.g. if from a browser that doesn't auto log me in).

    • Fix incorrect calculation of remaining free space when using Symbolic Links

      Creating a SymLink in the local OneDrive folder to another drive may incorrectly disable the "OK" button in the selective folder sync dialog. Reason: the calculated remaining free space on the local drive (used for the OneDrive folder) is incorrect.

      Example:
      Drive C (size 200 GB, 150 GB free) contains the OneDrive folder which contains a Symbolic Link to D:\syncme
      Drive D (size 1000 GB) contains 300 GB content in D:\syncme
      => The remaining free space on C is being calculated as -150 GB (or less), i.e. the OK button cannot be selected, even though there is still free space…

      • Facial recognition

        Facial recognition would be a great feature to add to one Drive - any ideas when it will be available?

          • ACTUALLY Enable long file path for OneDrive for Business

            This is a repost of https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/13697118-enable-long-file-path-for-onedrive-for-business

            because Jason Moore marked the previous suggestion as "BOOM IT's DONE" .... but he linked to an article that DOES NOT reference long file paths at all!... so everything indicates that it's NOT done...

            • Allow us to hide photos not in OneDrive Photos folder from Photos view in app

              On my OneDrive I have image files which are not photographs and are not useful in the Photos view where I'd want to browse photographs alone.

              • Unable to upload to “Shared” folders

                It doesn’t appear to be possible to upload directly to a shared folder in the OneDrive iPhone or iPad application from a 3rd party application.

                For example, I have tried uploading a document as a pdf from Notability into a shared folder in OneDrive but it only allows me to select one of my folders, not any of the folders being shared with me.

                As a consequence, we are having to do the following:

                - User 1 creates a folder and shares with User 2.
                - User 2 creates a folder and shares with User 1.
                - User 1 uploads…

                • Move shared folders to my own one drive

                  At the moment, one drive does not allow folders shared with me to be moved or synced into my one drive. Because of this, all shared folders never sync into my desktop which makes workflow TERRIBLE. please make it possible to move shared folders around. Dropbox makes this very easy for businesses.

                  I find it very dumb that I have to download shared folders to then upload them into my own folder....

                    • Ability to edit offline files on iOS and Android

                      Provide the same functionality that is available in Windows and MacOS sync clients that allows offline files to be edited. Curently read-only

                      (NOTE: Files marked offline are read-only - you can edit the file only when you're online. If you edit the file offline, it saves as a new file, and does not change the original OneDrive file.)

                      • allow only OneDrive for Business users to select the Save in <OneDrive Organization Name>.

                        In case I make [OneDrive] tile displayed, I am aware even the users prohibited to use OneDrive for Business are able to save them by choosing [Save in <OneDrive Organization Name>]. I would say that is against our business operation handling, and therefore I hope that only only OneDrive for Business users will be able to check Save in <OneDrive Organization Name>.

                        • Improve the recycle bin interface

                          The recycle bin interface is incredibly primitive and really only useful if you need to recover a file or two that you've deleted very recently. If you're looking to restore something that was accidentally deleted a while back and not noticed, then it's very difficult as you have to scroll through many deleted files. For starters, there should be a search/filter by file name. For more complex tasks, the user interface as used by most backup solutions (like DPM) would be helpful, e.g. recover all files deleted from a specific folder.

                          • Fix this stupid One Drive rule. Notes:  If you see a lock icon on synced files in File Explorer, it means the files are synced read-only. Yo

                            Why do I have to give up anything to sync my files locally. Groove.exe did not have this rule - it is so stupid.

                            Notes: 
                            If you see a lock icon on synced files in File Explorer, it means the files are synced read-only. You might not have permission to edit the files, or the library might require checkout or have required columns or metadata. If you change the files on your computer, the changes won’t sync.

                                      • Create 'Dropspace' to request files from none OneDrive User

                                        The ability to send a link to a none OneDrive user to 'Request' files. We would create an empty file and then send the link to a non OneDrive user to upload to.

                                        • Use FILENAME-only in Search

                                          File Search is not useful. I have a document titled "Master." I tap Search and type "master" and receive 75 files.

                                          Please provide and option to search FILENAME only.

                                          Windows 10 search, I type "Mas" and the file is the first choice. When in the Folder, I type "ma" which takes me to the file I'm looking for.

                                          Thanks!
