  1. add ability to print a doc or picture

    It should be easier to print from a Windows phone than it currently is, OneDrive or just office. Currently I share to my email and email the doc to my printer. I have a few printer apps and as far as I can tell sharing to the printer via email is currently the most convenient for me. This is Windows, there should be a better solution.

  4. Make uploading mass amount of files easy

    I have a very large music collection. Nearly lost all of it last time I hard a hard drive failure. The obvious answer is to upload it all to one drive. But one drive seem to struggle uploading large quantity of files. 9/10 times I have to restart the pc and hope it uploads. I started with 10000 files averaging 10mb each. It's been a few weeks now. I'm down to 3000. My internet upload speed is 12mbps. Uploading mass files on Google drive takes less then half the time and that's using Internet explorer.

  7. add better geo tagging to photos

    On ios moments, geo tagging is amazing... Rather than just London for rxampe it will say St pauls Cathedral, London. OneDrive and windows phone just shows city location.

  9. Onedrive geteilte Ordner lokal synchronisieren

    Bitte nehmt euch ein Beispiel an Dropbox oder Google Drive und lasst geteilte Ordner innerhalb der lokalen Ordnerstruktur synchronisieren. Dieses fehlende Feature ist derzeit DER Grund, weshalb ich (als absolut überzeugter Windows-Nutzer) lieber Dropbox zum Teilen von Dateien und Ordnern benutze.

  10. Onedrive Tooltip für Desktopanwendung verbessern

    Bitte passt den Tooltip der Desktop-Anwendung von Onedrive an. Gute Beispiele dafür liefern Dropbox und Google Drive. Es sollten z. B. die zuletzt geänderten (Upload/Download) Dateien angezeigt werden.

  11. Allow Me to Multitask when playing audio via Onedrive Windows Phone:

    When I play media, audio for example, I cannot multitask. I wish one drive played media like the podcasts app, with it i can switch to other apps and the audio still plays. It does not function like that in one drive

  12. I would like to share Onedrive folder with my daughter on her new HP Stream Laptop

    I could not do it with Onedrive, which was disappointing. I have solved my problem by using Dropbox. I set up a Dropbox account for my daughter, and then I created and shared a folder with her from my Dropbox account. I accepted the share invitation on her computer, and then created a shortcut to this folder on her desktop. Now she can keep all of her files in this shared folder, so she is backed up and I have access to the files so I can keep an eye on what she is doing.

    I wish I could have…

  14. Passcode unlock on Windows

    Add PIN code security when selecting which folders to sync on Windows.

    It will limit the amount of damage an attacker can do to your Cloud files assuming he gains access to your unlocked Windows machine.

    Now If I would Like to share Directly on Windows. The manupulation redirect me on onedrive site to share something. It is more useful if I can share directly from Windows with a popup or something like that.

  17. Bring tags feature to Windows Phone

    Why iOS have it and not WP?
    Srly, WHY? Microsoft can't make a app better on your own system?

  18. Better performance

    At least here on Windows Phone, if you have a lot of files, and worst, even photos, is to slow to load thumbnails! Make it faster! Also, make it faster to open =D
