  1. For SP library sync: Use the SharePoint icon in the tray

    EIther use the organisation icon used by Win10 on the quick launch, or use the SP icon m.. but the tray icon should not all be just different coloured clouds :)

  2. Click OneDrive icon on taskbar to close when it is already open

    Seems counter-intuitive that when OneDrive is already open, clicking on the OneDrive icon makes the window pop up again instead of close like with regular applications.

  3. Please fix "Processing changes" bug when folder has moved.

    I archive files which I won't need frequently by pausing synchronizations, moving one drive files to another folder (not present on the PC), and also moving the local files elsewhere. This used to work but now this does not anymore: onedrive stays forever in "Processing Changed".
    The moved folder appears in the "settings" dialog but I cannot change its status because "One drive is still updating files in this folder", except that the folder has been removed both locally and online and the update should just take a fraction of second.

  4. there should be a manual sync button because it doesn't sync immediate even though there is net

    There should be a quick update as soon as a new file is updated in the one drive folder (As soon as internet connection exist) . But this thing doesn't work sometimes , so a manual sync should be available.

  6. Stop bulliing clients to use OneDrive

    I simply do not want to use OneDrive. Please remove all those useless links and popping windows that urge me to use it. That's rubbish and a big offence to every user!

  7. Give back the one drive storage.

    Give back the one drive sotrage options or slash prices of storage. Google offers 100 GB for 1.99$. Also Google is faster. 5GB cloud storage is just useless. You're losing customers Microsoft.

  8. 更新一点也不及时,可以提供一个主动更新按钮。

    你们产品部门一点也不关心同类型产品的吗?知道你们IE是怎么被抢占市场的吗?微软除了系统本身外,用户体验太差,致命的是根本不看看市场需求和变化。

  11. Allow us to sync folders other than those in the OneDrive directory.

    I use other cloud storage programs and I essentially want to be able to make a folder in OneDrive and point it to the content in another folder which is being synced with Google Drive. I want to be able to have one copy of all my music on my desktop and have the files sync to multiple cloud services without the need to make duplicates.

  12. I sometime would like upload data or download data to folder than keep sync files. It absolutely waste of space

    I sometime would like upload data or download data to folder than keep sync files. It absolutely waste of space.
    OneDrive has only one option that sync files than keep upload only/keep download only. It should be good time use space for another task than duplicate space, sometime even triple or quadplicate if you login in a difference machine/tablet/smartphone.

    Low design. I asserted that.

  14. Open Office documents always from Office Online

    Microsoft Office definitely should open local file mapped to OneDrive directly from Office Online.

    When multiple users collaborates on one document and one of them opens Office document from local file system mapped to OneDrive instead of opening it from the web browser, OneDrive splits the document into 2 pieces. Computer name is added to the end of file name. This is good for general files, but unacceptable for Office documents.

  15. When choosing which folders to sync

    Users should be able to select folders that were shared with them by other users, like family or co-workers, to the local system without needing to use the OneDrive app to access them

  18. Onedrive freezes (crashes) without any symptom. Office 2016 files are not saved without warning for hours and hours...

    Please add functionality to warn a user that their file is not saved. When Onedrive freezes, opening save menu will crash Office product (Excel, Word etc) which will make you lose all the data.

  19. Make it easier to add multiple OneDrive accounts

    It's incredibly difficult to figure out how to add multiple OneDrive accounts to a desktop. I've managed to add a few additional accounts, but there's one account in particular which keeps failing to sync. (I can log into it online, but cannot get the OneDrive app to create a folder locally.)

  20. dont automatically backup desktop

    I use my desktop as a ...well, desktop. Recently one drive started automatically backing up my desktop without asking first, and I reached maximum capacity. Trying to free up space in one drive actually removed the files from my desktop locally!!! Not a good effect for file security and measures should be taken so local files aren't affected.
