    • increase the file upload limit

      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!

      • Adding TB to OnesDrive account

        Hi. I love OneDrive but the worst thing is the 1TB limit. If we have the ability to have multiple users under our 365 account, could we please have add an option to add 1TB or 2TB to one user, so that we could have a total of 2,3,4 TB etc. eventually? With 4k video and tons of hi res photos I would love to future proof my cloud storage without having multiple OneDrive accounts.

        Please!!! :)

        • Face Recognition & Share Face Collections

          Face recognition and tagging would be incredibly useful! Because whenever I take a photo of a friend or a family member, it will be able to recognize them and puts their photos in their own face collection which then I will be able to share their face collection with them.

          This way, all my friends and family members will instantly get notification from OneDrive whenever I take a photo of them. and they can see it in their OneDrive or Photos App on Windows without me having to create an Album for each event, put their photo in that album…

          • OneDrive web actually moves no more than 100-200 files

            This is a bug that has been staying for 4+ years and it really grinds my gears.

            When I select more than 100 photos and videos in "Camera Roll" folder and move them to another folder, OneDrive moves actually no more than 100-200 files, then tells wrong that it has moved all the files I selected in upper right corner.

            This bug doesn't rely on browser and subscription (I'm currently on Office 365 for Students and tried in Chrome, Opera, Firefox, Edge), but probably it's specific to my account.

            • Linux desktop client for OneDrive

              Since Microsoft officially has become a Linux Community Supporter, it is a shame not to have a Linux desktop client for OneDrive.

              • Please stop automatically creating folders (like attachments, pictures, documents) in my OneDrive.

                It is so annoying, every time i delete the folders, it pops up again. If i need a folder, i will make it myself. This is the only thing that keeps me from making OneDrive my top cloud storage solution.

                      • Face Recognition and Album Creation

                        There one missing key feature and that is face recognition and ability to tag faces of friends and family members. So that I can find them easier and share their photos with them. Whenever I take a photo of a friend or a family member, it recognizes their face and puts that photo in their album which is shared with that person and they can see their own photo! This way, it brings more people to OneDrive because they can see their photos taken by other family members in real time and get notified. Windows 10 has face recognition in…

                            • Group Your Individual Work OneDrive Folder with your Corporate/Sites OneDrive on the Desktop Client

                              Currently I have to navigate to two separate places. It would be nice if all my work related company files whether they be more individual or shared be grouped in one folder/drive.

                              I think Google Drive File Stream's structure where one has "My Drive" and "Team Drives" is easier to understand and these are both contained in the the same folder/drive.

                              In short it would be nice if OneDrive lived up to it's name and all work related files were stored in OneDrive on my computer. I'm on a Mac, but believe the same structure exists in Windows as well.

                              • Ability to switch between update rings (Production to Enterprise or Enterprise to Production).

                                Microsoft says that you can define the Rings in Group Policy. Sadly this is NOT completely accurate. Here is what you can do:
                                • If you are in the Production ring (18.06x) and you want to go to the Enterprise ring (18.025.x).
                                • You add the registry setting as they say here:
                                https://support.office.com/en-us/article/use-group-policy-to-control-onedrive-sync-client-settings-0ecb2cf5-8882-42b3-a6e9-be6bda30899c?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US#enableenterpriseupdate
                                Section: “Delay updating OneDrive.exe until the second release wave”.
                                • You will not be able to change your version until the Enterprise ring gets a version higher then the one you already have. Which means you will have to wait around 60 days…

                                Please add the ability…

                                  OneDrive for Business の外部共有を無効にしている。
                                  Teams の [チャット] より、外部ユーザーにファイルを [添付] したい。
                                  この状態で [添付] はできるが、外部ユーザーは [添付] されたファイルを開いたりダウンロードが行えない。
                                  これは、[添付] から [OneDrive] を選択しても、[マイ コンピューターからアップロード] を選択しても同様の結果になる。
                                  OneDrive for Business では外部共有を無効にしたいが、Teams の [チャット] ではファイルを添付して利用したい。
                                  別で設定できるように機能を拡張してほしい。

                                  We would like to attach files to external users on Teams chat when external sharing setup is off in our OneDrive for Business.
                                  The problem here is that we actually can attach files…

                                  • Have the capability to scan directly to a shared folder on the phone app.

                                    Being able to quickly scan a document to one of your "owned" OneDrive folders is a great feature (While you are in the folder all you do is press "+" then the scan symbol.) You even have the option to name it. However, this feature within "shared" folders is not available. it would be even more powerful if you could grant others permission to use this productive scan feature in a folder you "shared" with them.

                                    • OneDrive move to external on any Samsung still fails 6-2018!

                                      Ryan, there is a separate topic where you said this was working, it's NOT for any Samsung users and probably others!

                                      You seem to be ignoring that thread, titled,'Allow OneDrive app on Android to be moved to SD card including storing offline files'.

                                      Could you please comment here, or at least back in the other topic, so all of us still actively using it get some feedback as to your progress on solving the problem on the most widely used mobile platform in the world (yes there are more Samsungs than iPhones)?

                                      I am attaching the threads from just the…

                                      • Sharing UI Flow Update

                                        This suggestion is to update the UI/UX for sharing to be less confusing for users. When going through the process to share a file in OneDrive for Business, the blue "Send" button is enabled regardless of whether the user has added anyone's email addresses. This is also the case if the user picks "Everyone with existing access" then tries to hit "Send" with a message - assuming OneDrive will re-generate a message to everyone with existing access.
                                        To improve this, the "Send" button should only really be enabled (clickable) if the user has successfully added valid e-mail addresses when sharing…

                                          We hope the feature will be implemented that enables selecting NAS as the sync destination when we sync items in OneDrive for Business so as we can automatically make backups of data updated in NSA.
