  2. Drag & Drop

    drag & drop in the iOS App would be awesome (google drive has it)
    would make the ipad more computer-like and OneDrive a better file system

  3. Locking files

    Dear developers,

    I wonder if it is possible to create an option to lock an folder (or file) making it available (on line or even off line) only after inserting a password.

    It would be very useful protect some folder or files from undesirable or unauthorized access.

    Thank you,

    Rubens.

  4. Add Native Support for Living Images, Cinemagraph, Refous, Microsoft Blink, Lumia Moments, Rich Capture

    Lumia devices are well known for their ability to take incredible images. Innovative features such as Cinemagraph, Refocus, Lumia Moments, Rich Capture and Living Images allow to capture our special moments in new and engaging ways. The problem arises when we try and share these images. The recipient only gets the still image and not the innovate functionality that we have built into out device.
    The solution for this is to add native support for these innovative imaging features to OneDrive. Thus when I share an album with Living Images via OneDrive, all the recipients can experience the moment as…

  5. improve the appearance of the file name in the ZIP file so as to avoid the garbled double-byte Japanese characters.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■件名 :OneDrive for Business 上の ZIP ファイル内のファイル名を確認する時に 2バイト文字に対応できるようにして欲しい
    ■内容: どのブラウザを使用しても、OneDrive for Business 上にアップロードした ZIP ファイルの中身を開くと日本語である 2 バイト文字が文字化けしてしまいファイル名が確認できない。

    Mac にて圧縮したファイルについては文字化けしない事を確認できていますが、Windows にて圧縮したファイルについても文字化けしないように改善して欲しい。

    No matter which browsers I use, I am unable to check the file name due to its garbled double-byte Japanese characters when looking into the ZIP file once uploaded into OneDrive for Business. Using Mac OS, on the other hand, I can find the ZIP file ungarbled. Frankly, I prefer to check the file without any garbled characters along with Windows, so I hope the display style of file within Windows to be improved.

  6. Control of communication timing

    2) Control of communication timing
    Please make it possible for the administrator to change and manage the timing to execute the synchronization. (Example: once a day, once in several hours, on a daily basis etc.)
    This is to prevent situations where synchronization is carried out during cellular communication, which consumes traffic.

  7. Enable modifying the name for the synced folder displayed in Explorer.

    I am aware of the sync folder name displays as [OneDrive - Corporate name] in the side bar on the Explorer when Synchronization is performed between two user accounts within the same tenant so that the user cannot distinguish the contents unless opening the folder.

    Since the name of the synced folder cannot be changed, it is displayed as follows. (Regardless of changing name of the entire tenant.)
    1. [OneDrive - Corporate name]
    2. [OneDrive - Corporate name(1)]...

    We have a situation that using a single computer to separately use the multiple accounts (such as Personal OneDrive) , therefore I…

  8. Ordner offline verfügbar machen

    Hallo zusammen,
    ich würde mich super freuen, wenn man in der App neben einzelnen Dateien auch ganze Ordner verfügbar machen könnte. So kann ich, wenn ich z.B. im Flieger bin, komplett frei arbeiten und muss nicht jede Datei einzeln vorher herunterladen.

  9. shared music folder

    My cd collection is ripped to mp3. I use the Music folder and Groove streaming to listen to it on my devices. This folder is shared with my wife, son and my work live account. Groove for my work account, wife's account or sons account can't use this shared library. It appears in OneDrive clients fine and media player can use it but not Groove in Windows 10 or on mobile. I understand concerns over shares and legal aspect so limit number of people it's shared with like office home. Or only allow same users access ..

  10. Add Shared with me Folder to OneDrive

    Add the option to add a shared folder or file to your OneDrive for Business. I want to be able to organize shared files and folders with my content on OneDrive. This capability is available in Google Drive (https://support.google.com/drive/answer/2375057?hl=en) and should be available with OneDrive.

  11. Move a shared folder to sync to a different location in your personal OneDrive

    As a freelancer, I share a lot of folders with various clients. However, it's a pain to have everything sync in the root of my personal OneDrive folder. Can I please have some options to organize my shared folders by putting them inside other folders? Thanks.

  15. Selecting

    It would be so much easier and faster if we could select multiple photos to move or delete. One by one takes ages!

  16. Allow incremental file sync.

    Currently, when large files change even a little bit, the whole file must be reuploaded.

    Changes to a file since the last sync should be uploaded instead of the entire file contents.

  17. Retitle or Rename File Should Not Break URL/Link

    If the filename changes, this should not break the URL. A user may have shared a link/URL to a file and then changed the filename.

    Please allow filenames to be changed and links to remaining working.

  18. Allow for Full.... Full screen slideshows.

    The other day I had some guests over to view my latest trip photos on onedrive. I was disapointed that even in magnified mode the images weren't full screen. Microsoft slideshow for files on a computer are really full size while onedrive images aren't. Info borders are nice but full (really full) size images should be the priority.
