  1. The feature of saving the files first to the computer and then have a backup on OneDrive

    It would be good to have the feature of saving the screenshots and other files first to the computer and then save a backup of these on OneDrive so that you don't have to worry about them not being synced to OneDrive as you at least have a copy on your computer.

  2. Salvar como

    O ambiente é o seguinte: “Arquivo Word aberto e sincronizado automaticamente -> Salvar como ->”. Ao executar está ação a janela de salvamento abre a pasta online do OneDrive ao invés da pasta local. Além disso, o arquivo salvo aparece na pasta local com o atributo somente online. Consequência disso é o atraso no rendimento do trabalho, pois primeiro é necessário aguardar o envio do arquivo para a nuvem e segundo é necessário aguardar seu download caso seja necessário abrir o mesmo logo em seguida. Embora seja possível selecionar a pasta local no ato do salvamento, seria muito útil se…

  3. Tag

    After a holiday, I tag our photo’s one by one but it would be great if I could select multiple files (or even a folder) and tag them all at once (or inherit tags from the folder).

  4. Signout Option in One Drive in Windows Desktop

    Why can I not Sign Out from One Drive Signed in Windows Desktop? What if One uses One Drive in an Internet Café and Can't Find the Sign Out Option? There is a full possibility that Someone Other Might Access My Personal Documents and Misuse them.

  6. Bug: Wrong file status reported with Files On-Demand enabled in apps outside Windows folder

    In recent Windows 10 versions (tested in VM with clean install of 1903 and 1909) and latest OneDrive app (also tested with latest version from Enterprise ring), the following bug occurs:

    When Files On-Demand is enabled, all apps OUTSIDE WINDOWS DIRECTORY report "sync pending" availability status - regardless of an actual status - in file open/save dialogs, shell icon overlays in 3rd party file managers etc. Moving the apps to the Windows folder fixes the problem.

    Therefore, this does not manifest in most system apps (Windows Explorer...), but it does manifest for apps in Program Files folder (even Microsoft's own,…

  7. If an Office 365 BusinessPro customer uninstalls OD completely, prevent any display of OD in all Office 365 Apps (PowerPoint, Word, ...)

    If an Office 365 Business Pro customer uninstalls OneDrive completely, Microsoft should prevent any display of OneDrive, in any form, in all Office 365 Apps (PowerPoint, Word, ...)

    Thanks.

  11. Please make it so that files in the document library cannot be moved from OneDrive client app

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):

    Please make it so that files in the document library cannot be moved from OneDrive client app


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive クライアントアプリを利用して SharePoint Online のドキュメント ライブラリを同期した際に、OneDrive クライアントアプリからローカル PC 上にファイルを移動できてしまう状態です。
    ユーザーが利用する際に、ドキュメント ライブラリに保存されているファイルのコピーは許可しつつ、移動する動作を禁止する設定を希望します。
    When I used the OneDrive client app to sync with SharePoint Online document library, files will be moved from OneDrive client app to the local pc.
    I hope for a new setting to prevent moving of files while still permitting the copy of files saved in the document library.

  12. It would be great if we can select any specific folder of my PC to sync in one drive.

    Hi
    It would be great if we can select any specific folder of my pc to sync in one drive. in current option we are only allowed put files/folders in one drive to sync. In desktop PC, provide an option to add a different location, or custom folders to sync.

    Thanks

  16. Allow users to prioritise the files being synced by OneDrive, see which files are being synced in a list

    Users have no control over the sync process. I'd like to be able to set the priority, deselect some files from syncing (e.g. very large files so I could set them to run overnight) and see which files are being synced in a list, so that if there is an issue I can see what it is. Right now due to an upgrade error Windows is trying to sync 155GB of files, and I can't even see what they are until each file start to sync

  17. Give your helpdesk team the ability to remote control customer computers to deal with problems

    Instead of only allowing us to access the help team via email and then only have live chat (which is slow because they work with several people at once, and you can't explain your issue on the phone, so there are lots of misunderstandings) allow the OneDrive help team to remote control customer computers, just like the Windows and Surface teams

  18. Automatic pause sync while gaming option

    Some games require files to be stored in Documents and some people prefer to have their Documents folder in OneDrive, which can cause conflicts. Unless I'm mistaking; most gaming environments, won't need OneDrive operating in the back ground, so an auto pause feature under such specific circumstances seems like a feature that should already complement the way Windows 10 is designed.

  19. To allow users to insert OneDrive Business pictures within Powerpoint not OneDrive Personal.

    Our staff can sign into their OneDrive Business account within Powerpoint (desktop version) to open powerpoints but are unable to use the button within powerpoint Insert > "Online Pictures" (within the ribbon) to insert a picture from their OneDrive Business account. It only allows OneDrive Personal.
