  1. Don't attempt to implement Dynamic Type (larger text) on iPhone/iPad.

    If Large Text is selected (via Settings/General/Accessability) this is poorly implemented on OneDrive, eg folder names beneath the folder icon (Files view). People with visual disabilities can Zoom the whole page. As mentioned elsewhere when folders are displayed with a sliver of a photo please can this be enlarged as per oneDrive v9.9 (v10 is a setback).

      • Attaching multiple jpeg's from OneDrive for Business to MS Outlook renames the file structure

        Attaching multiple jpeg's from OneDrive for Business to MS Outlook renames the file structure

        I noticed that when you want to send multiple jpeg’s from OneDrive to MS Outlook on an iPad, it renames the files to file-x.jpeg etc. If you want to send one picture from OneDrive to Outlook, it holds the filename structure.
        I am using an iPad Air 2 with the latest iOS 11.2.6 running Outlook Ver 2.65.0, OneDrive for Business 10.4.If you are within Outlook and attach files from OneDrive for Business it doesn’t rename the file structure but you can’t attach multiple files at once.…

          We recognized that it is possible to select “Allow syncing only on PCs joined to specific domains” setting in “Sync” in OneDrive admin center. Other than the setting, I hope you to implement the feature to control allowing and prohibiting of synchronization of workgroup users not joining to AD.

          Thank you for your consideration.

                • Permission user folders

                  Good work!
                  We are testing the synchronization between different dividends in SharePoint linked to user accounts.
                  We have encountered an unnecessary problem.
                  When a user has no permissions for a folder, it appears with a red cross and sync message appears.

                  In the mobile app, the folders for which the user is not authorized does not appear, so it should be.
                  When do you plan to fix this?

                        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…

                          • Progress info for on-demand sync

                            It would be more user-friendly to show current progress of on-demand folders sync. Currently it's only shown as "Processing changes" and popping up new files in the OneDrive pane. User doesn't know how fast is it going, how much files are left, when it will end. Having similar info as for classic sync would be nice.

                                • 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…

                                    • Fix it so it works on Amazon Fire tablets!

                                      The App tells me there's no wifi when trying to use it on an Amazon Fire tablet. Nothing I have tried fixes the problem. The App is useless.

                                      • OneDrive CSP for MDM management

                                        With SilentConfig coming (https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/OneDrive-Blog/Previews-for-Silent-Sync-Account-Configuration-and-Bandwidth/bc-p/120993#M252) we need the ability to configure clients through MDM (Intune). A OneDrive CSP would help us achieve this.

                                        • Enable viewing the Image library properly without the OneDrive Apps.

                                          *English follows Japanese

                                          ■Title(件名):
                                          SharePoint アプリからの呼び出しの際に OneDrive アプリ経由の画像ライブラリの表示が可能な機能の実装を要望します。

                                          Enable viewing the Image library properly without the OneDrive Apps.
                                          ***************
                                          ■Description(内容):
                                          SharePointアプリからサイト内の画像ライブラリを開くと OneDriveアプリが起動しますが、エラーが表示され画像をを見ることができないない。そのため、OneDrive アプリを経由せずとも正確に画像ライブラリが見られるように機能の改善を希望します。

                                          Currently, I am concerned that you cannot see the image when opening the Image library in the site from the SharePoint App because of an error occurs after the OneDrive Apps will be automatically launched. Therefore, I hope the feature will be improved that enables viewing the Image library properly without the OneDrive Apps.

                                          Thank you for your continued support.
