  2. Automatically save screenshot to OneDrive for business

    Hi,

    Understand that save screenshot to OneDrive is currently not available in OneDrive for Business. I would love to see this function being implemented in OneDrive for Business.

    Best Regards,
    Kai Ying

  5. One Drive should give option to select folders to sync during setup

    One Drive should give option to select share point folders to sync during one drive setup instead of after setup and once sync starts some times it doest allow to select folder wise with error message .

    It forcefully selects all folders then putting unnecessary load on server.

    You need to seriously work on it

  7. Provide improved notice of sync status re: search function fails

    Provide improved notice of sync status re: search function fails

    More specifically, notify user when incomplete or broken sync is preventing search from finding searched-for terms

    Specifically, give Status/Notice of CACHE/INDEXING Sync Discrepancies That Cause OneNote Search to Miss Recently Entered Items

    Full Explanation:
    1.) Difference From Previous Ideas

    7.) Insufficiency of Current Workaround
    8.) Detailed Feature Request

    1.) Difference From Previous Ideas:
    While there are previous ideas regarding sync, sync status, and cache, none of them relate to a failed search…

  8. Customize email to managers of terminated employees

    Please make it possible for admins to customize the email to managers. The out of the box email contains spelling errors and is very spammy/phishy feeling.

    I can't believe this isn't an option in this world of cyber attacks!

    I want the ability to brand the email so it matches (at least as closely as possible) our corporate standards.

    I want to be able to format the text so it is easily readable, conforms to our style standards and basically looks professional.

  9. Option to turn off all onedrive use

    I try to save files to my desktop and they default to the onedrive desktop and then after 10 days if I need to recover an autosave file I have to log back in and go through the hoops on a microsoft account I never use. I reset the default save location but the "desktop" suggestion for save location is still onedrive desktop.

    I know there are solutions for this but Onedrive is so intrusive and confusing to troubleshoot that I want to switch to open office because of this, and I am an experienced user. There is also proprietary…

  12. Its better to finish one file uploading at a time and then move to next. Uploading multiple files at a time is flawed design.

    My System hangs when there are multiple files being uploaded at the same time. Please change the design to upload one file at a time, finish that and then upload the next file.

  13. enable a setting to let user set when OneDrive to start/stop syncup

    when onedrive is working, the PC is slow, need to have setting to let it enable/disable syncup.
    for example, from 20:00PM to start sync and at 8:00AM to stop sync. then the PC performance will not be impacted in working time.

  16. Allow me to import pictures to the Windows 'Photos' app from the OneDrive 'Photos' folder.

    Pictures that are synced from my phone to OneDrive appear in a folder called 'Photos' which sits at the same level as 'My Files'. Only files and folders within 'My Files' can be synced with the OneDrive app on my PC. This means that when I try to import pictures from OneDrive to the Windows 'Photos' app, the high-level 'Photos' folder is not visible.

    I want to add pictures to the 'Photos' app because it has better functionality than OneDrive, but I can only do this using a workaround (moving pictures from the 'Photos' folder to a dedicated 'Pictures' folder…

  20. Allow sync of ~$ files

    Allowing the sync of these types of files (~$ start of file) allows lock files created by 3rd party programs to be read by other users of a shared onedrive. I use onedrive for work, and before switching to using onedrive we were using a shared network drive that creates these temp lockfiles for a program called Altium. When created, Altium on another machine then knows it cannot open for modify, and effectively prevents losing work.
