  1. I see this ridiculous "Set up OneDrive" pop-up a thousand times a day. The more I see it the less tempted I am to set up OneDrive.

    Why not encourage me to use your products by making good ones with features that I want instead of by constantly distracting me from my work by pestering me to set them up. If I wanted to set up OneDrive I'd have done it. Leave me alone!

  2. Stop OneDrive running at startup after I've selected it to not run at bloody startup.

    I've had enough of this, there is NO way to prevent OneDrive running at startup, even unchecking run at start up has no effect.
    Along with a few other choice issues, sorry, "features", it's ****** me off enough that aside from my work laptop, I no longer use Windows at all.

    The way to get users to use your services, is not shove them down the throat of said users.

  4. accept no as meaning NO!

    when i cancel the sign in and close the one drive app, it is because I DONT WANT TO USE IT. i do not need it to pop up the sign in again 10 seconds later.

    I even selected exit from the notification icon.

    when I close it I expect it to stay closed.

  8. FIX Icon shows "processing changes" yet there are no changes. View sync problems is light gray and not accessible.

    Sync issues should be clear and fixable by users. Give more information on every step of file upload. For example, "processing changes that never stops even after changes are uploaded.

  13. Make a way to turn off onedrive

    I find it aggravating to get a pop up to log in every time I open file explorer. I also don't want a progam I don't use and serves me no purpose running on the computer.

  14. Change Log / Release Notes

    Can you please incorperate a link in OneDrive Settings > About that links to the actual changelog @ https://support.office.com/en-us/article/New-OneDrive-sync-client-release-notes-845dcf18-f921-435e-bf28-4e24b95e5fc0?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US? Right now the version number simply links to the OneDrive blog, which rarely if ever mentions build numbers. As an IT Administrator it's been a real challenge knowing which version coincides with certain feature releases. I only happened to track the real changelog down by accident one day and I'm sure other IT Admins share my frustrations with this changelog being buried the way it is. Thank you! Loving the new SharePoint library sync.
