  1. Right click > Copy File/Folder path

    Using the Mac client to sync our OneDrive Enterprise / SharePoint files on our local computers.

    It would save a lot of time to be able to right click any file or folder and copy the direct path to the cloud (like the Dropbox client).

    • describe the system requirement regarding a new sync client.

      I am not sure whether the system requirement of One Drive .exe would be applicable in case of synchronization although it is described as such within a private One Drive. Therefore, I hope either of the clear description to be shown that is applicable for One Drive for Business synchronization or the separate public information to be posted.

      • be aware of the difference of time shown on the modified date and recent activity.

        I hope I will be able to set the correct time both on the modified date and the recent activity within One Drive for Business. Currently,there is the difference of update date between the modified date and recent activity.

        • be aware of the behavior that a personal site goes live.

          If my users did not have any idea of how a personal site would go live, I would say that would confuse them. Therefore, I hope that you will be able to provide users with the public information showing explicitly the behavior that a personal site goes live on a screen.

          • have the shared users in a different shared screen check another user who is "Shared with".

            In case I share the items within an One Drive for Business's different shared screen, I hope that the shared users will be able to check another "Share with" since they are currently unable to confirm another one once shared on a new screen.

            • make me check "Shared with" easily.

              In case of sharing the items within One Drive for Business, I am able to confirm "Shared with". However, I must follow some instructions to check the "Shared with", and therefore I hope that I will be able to check it with ease.

                • be aware of the way to provide users with a new feature.

                  I am aware that there is neither public information nor specification on SharePoint admin center which states a[default link type]have an impact on the behavior at the time of[sharing]along with a right-click of an item in One Drive for Business.That does confuses end users and therefore, I hope that the implementation of a new feature should be followed by opening the public information in detail about the feature.

                    • Allow creating "direct download" flavour links when sharing a file

                      Allow creating a shared link for a file, which can be send to a user via email (for instance) and user can download the file by using the link even from a computer without the need of using any Microsoft office account/api.
                      To be clear, sharing files without any restriction, a "direct link" flavour.
                      It's working as expected for a zip file for instance, probably because Microsoft cannot open it, so it lets you to download the file.
                      But for a word file, Office Online is opened in the browser when clicking on the link.
                      The behavior I'm looking for…

                        • Wishing to sync along with setting of priority

                          In case the synchronization through One Drive for Business's sync client is implemented, I wish I could take a priority over the folders I select for my convenience during the synchronization.

                            In case One Drive for Business's sync client stops, I wish I could check automatically the updated data on Cloud when the synchronization restarts.

                            • 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…

                              • Regarding the "OneDrive" item of the Office client

                                When following the path “File” – “Save as” – “OneDrive” – “Sign in” on the Office Client, it is not possible to log in to Office 365, even when correctly inputting the account information. That`s inconvenient. I`d like to be actually able to log in from that screen.

                                • take it into account that the notification of the time storage limit should be available.

                                  I am aware that the message within classic UI is displayed that indicates the time when One Drive for Business's storage limit comes. On the other hand, the modern UI doesn't show the message. Consequently, I really hope the feature to be implemented that enables to displaythe message or to notify me of it with e-mail.

                                  • disable sharing on OneDrive app

                                    Enable the option to entirely disable sharing of a folder from OneDrive app, I believe that option was previously available​ but removed at some point.

                                      • implement the feature have make a limit on library's sync command.

                                        I hope the feature to be implemented that enables to prohibit the synchronization all together within a site collection or sub site.

                                        • Fix "a newer version is installed" and OneDrive failure to launch with version mismatch with roaming profiles

                                          Please fix compatibility issues with Roaming Profiles

                                          Scenario 1 – can’t install NGSC on a second computer after update

                                          The automatic update not only updates the OneDrive.exe in the local profile, but also the registry, which roams with the user. When the user logs onto a new computer and NGSC tries to run OneDriveSetup for the user, it sees the registry key and delivers a message saying a newer version is installed. By deleting HKCU\Software\Microsoft\OneDrive, NGSC will install.

                                          Scenario 2 – registry version mismatch between updated and non-updated OneDrive.exe when roaming

                                          If NGSC installs for the user on a second…
