  2. prioritization for uploading when not web browsing or playing games/working when computer is left on.

    when in desktop not running web browsers or playing games or using apps that need the internet to upload or download information the cloud drive makes flies selected uploaded automatically for you if you so desire it and for auto backups of your entire system for data migration to a new computer from your old one or for duplication to new hardware only needing a physical yubikey 5 fido key to access in case of forgetting your password for enterprise and power elite user levels with massive TB usage needing to migrate data or duplicate it seamlessly to new machine…

  4. Let me turn off notifications about not syncing because of a metered connection. I appreciate it...but you don't have to tell me every time.

    Also: when I clicked Feedback in my app, it took me to https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/category/86087-windows , which is an archived forum.

    I would report my version number, but I can't find any "about" or the version number anywhere. I suspect I'm up to date. (Up to date Windows and Office.)

  5. Provide an obvious way to remove the OneDrive icon from the desktop in Win 10 Home

    I have no intention of using OneDrive on my laptop with 10 Home and don't want to see the icon on the desktop continuously.

  7. Please add “creation date” to the fields a user can easily display for a file.

    To see when a file was originally created you currently must right click and look at its properties. The properties tell you when your document was created. However you can't pull this date out onto a main display enabling you to sort or find based on its creation date. You can only see it through "properties". Many suggestions are similar to this idea but no action is being taken to help us. We need creation date, and modified date, in addition to the date it was recently downloaded from OneDrive.

  8. Updating onedrive is very very slow from the PC. Would be helpful to have a "Flush" icon that forces immediate update in the cloud.

    Updating onedrive is very very slow from the PC. Would be helpful to have a "Flush" icon that forces immediate update to the cloud. eg: I uploaded a 14mb folder and then attempted to share a link. As the file has not been fully uploaded I cannot send the link, have been waiting 20 minutes....

  9. Improve the speed on 1st login when using the sync client

    On 1st login the sync client takes about 5 minutes to startup and login to OneDrive for Business. When using shared devices not 1:1 this is not as good as mapped network drives. Please can you provide a way to speed up the process.

  12. Why do some MS apps go around OneDrive client?

    Some WIN10 apps like Fotos, Groove, OfficeLens and others have their 'own' logic to access / sync OneDrive. Why the **** do NOT ALL apps simply use data access through the OneDrive client? Is there no management in MS to coordinate development?

  14. One Drive automatic synchronization at one drive map

    I frequently have that one drive doesn't start automatically and because the icon of onedrive doesnt appear at background tasks I cannot start the sync manually. I suggest that you ad this option to the one drive map itself (in documents, where you also have other settings, but no this one), because now you have to reinstall onedrive because there is no other option to force it to start. Thus an option to force it to start or a sync option in the map itself would be nice

  16. Ability to access the clipboard outside of Word

    I just recently lost part of a research essay because I was cutting and pasting what I had written into a new document (I meant to copy and paste it but oh well), and I could not find how to access the clipboard to find the second to last item I had cut in order to not lose that work without using an application, which could not recover what was cut before it was installed. :(

  20. Allow the use of Whatsapp and other social netwoks to share photos

    When working with your pc, there are very few options to share your photos, compared with the sharing options avilable in the android app. Popular apps like whatsapp, instagram, twiter or apps like evernote should be allowed

    Alternatively, the android app should include the "On this day" feature, (which is fantastic) as is the case in the windows app
