  3. OneDrive flyout menu should match the new style of Windows 11

    The OneDrive flyout menu is out of place with the rest of the UI changes being made in Windows 11. For better consistency and integration, the flyout menu should adopt some of the style of Windows 11 like transparency and rounded corners.

  5. onedrive has to manage sync huge data from removable device

    Usually, C drive has limited space, while the user has removable drive with huge capacity and data.
    In such case, moving huge data will get failed due to limitation of space on C Drive.
    so, it should transfer it directly.

  7. Add option to automatically open destination folder after "move to"

    Google drive does this and it is VERY VERY useful.

    After executing "Move To" for a an item, the destination folder is automatically opened.

    I suggest a check box in the destination folder selection dialog area, that is enabled by default.

    [ X ] Open destination folder after moving

  8. Remove OneDrive settings from system tray in Windows 11

    In the system tray is a OneDrive icon, please remove this and replace everything to the settings app.

    The system tray should be almost empty in Windows 11

  9. Make an option to (easily) have your Desktop mapped to Onedrive

    Despite my attempts to curtail the practice, at my office, a good deal of my coworkers save practically everything to their desktop. This causes them to not want to use Onebox because it "doesn't save their important files". If the desktop could be auto-mirrored to a "Desktop" folder on Onedrive, I believe there would be wider adoption of Onedrive.

  12. Enable sync based on SharePoint View

    The ability to automatically and dynamically filter which folders and files are synced (or are made visible in File Explorer) based on a preconfigured SharePoint view for the synchronized library.

    Either through the 'Choose Folders' option in settings, just instead of manually selecting folders, or during initial sync it will allow the user to select a view to use.

    Or allow the option to configure a default / alternate view in the library settings that can be used by users when synchronizing..

    This would make it so much easier to interact with relevant files and folders in File Explorer, especially…

  14. Allow backup on Onedrive in parallel to other cloud backups

    At present I can't backup on Onedrive because I'm running other cloud services. That's a pity cause I want to keep Google photos, Flickr and Smugmug. In addition I found no way to e.g. backup only Documents and not Pictures.

  15. Allow users to create a task force to implement features

    Since the Microsoft team clearly isn't able to add essential features to the software, they should start considering letting a team of voters to implement it themselves.

    The ignore feature request has been out for over 6 years, still being a huge pain in the ***, however it appears either no efforts are being made, or the entire dev team is lacking basic competence.

  17. Adapt new design of Windows 11

    As Windows 11 was just announced and still under development, I think this would be time to start working on the new design for the pop-up panel of OneDrive to match the new design of Windows 11.
    Something like transparency effect, rounded corner, fly-out animations and new icons just like how the Action Center (Quick Settings) currently is on Windows 11.
    Hope this makes sense.

  19. fast sync with local copy of OneDrive folder after (re)installing windows

    TL;DR
    If you reinstall windows syncing can take HOURS even if you already have a full local copy of the OneDrive folder.
    The sync feature should be smart enough to quickly detect you already are in sync. It only needs to check each file's size/date/hash to detect changes (or even hash a group of files or a folder for faster checks). Or even simpler: you could click a button to tell OneDrive you are already synced!

    I have my OneDrive folder on a separate drive/partition. This allows me to use a third party tool to backup desired files to this…
