  1. Support for encrypted files

    I have sensitive documents on my computer that I'd like to put on Onedrive, but they would need to be encrypted. I could encrypt them with a program like AxxCrypt, but in Onedrive the only way I can use it is to download it and run the program. This could be simpler.

  2. enable encryption at rest of files in personal onedrive

    Hi, I would appreciate if Microsoft could implement encryption at rest for personal Onedrive files. To be honest, I am a fan of Onedrive and I could see how it has become much better over the years. The only thing that is holding it back for many personal consumers is the lack of encryption at rest. It makes Onedrive look very dated in the light of its competitors who are rapidly growing market share.

    I understand that similar requests have been raised over the years, but still no action yet. At least give users an explanation please.

  3. Put in a print to printer button! Maybe as an option under "Print to PDF"

    I want to print my online powerpoint but there is not a print to printer button. I have to save to pdf or download the file and open it in powerpoint and then print it.

  6. Group Policy to Add SharePoint Sites

    SilentConfig is all very good, but I'd also like to be able to add SharePoint Online Libraries to appear automatically alongside the user's OneDrive for Business. A policy item that contains a list of URLs to SharePoint Libraries would do the trick. As SharePoint Libraries might be particularly large, it would make sense if such libraries defaulted to "Files on Demand"

    Of course, this should also be added to the OneDrive CSP that everyone is screaming out for!!

  7. slideshow capability on mobile devices

    Built in Slideshow support on OneDrive for all devices, ie web, windows phone, ios, android, pc.

    I should be able to start a slideshow on any of these devices of my pictures directly from the OneDrive app, not have to download the pictures frist.

  8. Multiple accounts

    It's not uncommon to have multiple outlook accounts (to keep work and personal accounts separate). Having the ability to sign into multiple accounts at the same time would be great. There are third party apps that offer this already (Cloud Indeed, File Hub, etc).
    Thanks,

  10. Please add Preview for SVG files

    One Drive for Business and SharePoint Online fail to preview SVG files.
    This is a common format for web vector graphic files.

  12. Allow moving location of a synced folder

    This is a surprisingly high requested feature, but Microsoft has stepped on it in various ways causing many request tickets for the same thing to be created, some of them closed. Another example of them not caring what customers really want.

  13. Exclude some files by extension

    I'm using One Drive Ent. alone but with 3 computers.
    I'm using Visual Studio 2015 and .NET source code is stored in One Drive..
    Because I can switch from one computer to another, I cannot use a source control software (like SourceSafe).
    But at each build, all generated files are pushed to OneDrive.
    I don't really need to save .OBJ, .PDB files.

    So, a global file filter can be useful to save bandwidth.

  14. Possibility to exclude .git, node_modules, etc. files/folders

    Old feature request: "Exclude wanted folder or file names from sync" was flagged as "Not right now" and the request was closed.

    What about now? Is now a good time to implement this?

  15. Fix file copying for all sizes

    While we can successfully move "small" files with the Move To option in the website, Copy To always fails for "bigger" files. I haven't looked for an exact minimum size that can't be copied, but I know that a file of 24MB cannot be copied.

    At the very least any restrictions should be documented.

  16. Select folders for photos tab

    I do not want every image file from my entire OneDrive displayed in the photos section of the app. Either default to the pictures folder or let me choose folders to include.

  17. Shared folders on every user's desktop (filesystem)

    Currently, when sharing files the full access is only via the web site. I'd like to see the ability to sync shared folders onto the local file system for every user it's shared with.

  18. open with explorer

    Allow the old feature "Open With Explorer" in OneDrive for Business and Office 365 Group Files on the web.

    Syncing files through OneDrivefor Business app is not a good solution for many businesses.

  19. Add possibility to add and sync files and folders outsider the OneDrive folder

    It's just ridiculous that it's not possible to specify files and folders outside the OneDrive folder in the client. Everything needs to be copied in the OneDrive folder in order to upload and sync to OneDrive. I don't want to put all my files and folders on my hard drive in the OneDrive folder. Specify locations and paths in the client would be so much easier and more comfortable and the files would sync immediatly.

    I do not understand why you say that you depper integrate OneDrive in Windows 10 when you still force users to use the OneDrive folder…

  20. Office365 Groups Support

    Make OneDrive mobile apps a great alternative to DropBox Teams by adding Office365 Group Support! Would be good if I could see my Group files without having to use a PC or use mobile web browser.
