  2. Colored File Folders in OneDrive

    Simply allowing users to assign file folders to better organize things in groups or types of files. Simple idea that allows people to see their types of files without having to read a single word.

  5. Attachment of Documents like doc, xls, ppt, pdf from to Email must be supported.

    While replying or compose new email there must be option to attached doc, xls, ppt, pdf file directly from One Drive.

    This is very helpful and huge concern.

  8. One drive for windows 10 should LIST all files .

    when I installed windows 10 insider preview I noticed that One drive doesn't LIST all uploaded folder/files but only those which I selected for offline downloading.
    In comparison One drive for windows 8.1 was quite polished.

  9. Allow OneDrive on a disk with the ExFAT file system

    The restrictions on allowed file systems makes a Mac/PC dual boot virtually impossible.

    Windows forces the use of the NTFS file system, which doesn't play nicely with OS X. It's possible to redirect the Mac app to use the NTFS file system, but it never actually syncs.

    The only universally supported file system between both operating systems is ExFAT. Dropbox works wherever you place it. Please remove this restriction.

  10. Offer direct uploads and the ability to upload multiple clips at once.

    Since Upload Studio is pretty limiting in its editing options, I tend to upload clips to One Drive, download them, and then edit them on my PC. The two main problems making this a hassle is that we're forced to upload to One Drive AND Upload Studio, and that we're unable to upload more than one clip at a time (unless we just bundle a bunch together in Upload Studio, adding yet another step to us PC editors).

    So I suggest offering us the option to upload our clips directly to OneDrive instead of forcing us the upload to Upload…

  11. Estaría bueno que en la misma aplicación se nos informe sobre la capacidad de nuestra cuenta, sin tener que acceder a la web.

    Hoy en día, para saber la capacidad total o restante de nuestra cuenta, hay que acceder desde la web, ya que el software no tiene un lugar donde nos informe.

  13. improve the video viewing experience

    Watching videos that ha ecbeen uploaded to OneDrive from my phone is completely painful. It takes FOREVER to buffer/load. Its an absolutely horrible experience so I now need to use my external hard drive for videos. And no, it isn't my internet connection.

  15. Allow One-Way files/folders in OneDrive, so I don't have to download on all machines

    I want to be able to upload folders / files without having to download them on all machines. For example, it would be nice to upload documents to Photos from clients but only sync them all down on my main box.

    I could also upload logs for problems to a "problems" folder and then delete them from a client box.

    I could find pictures for my parents and copy to a shared folder, but I don't need the duplicates on my local box, just on the cloud share for them.

    I used to solve this problem by just keeping the…

  19. Create prioritization for files/folders.

    Allow for users to set a prioritization of particular folders so to allow them to sync before everything else. Would be invaluable when using another device to have the files you set as high priority to download/upload before everything else.

  20. Add a setting that allows users to turn off the dialog box/prompt when you exit the OneDrive client in Windows 7

    I manually start/exit OneDrive as needed on my Windows 7 computers and so I would like your team to add a setting in the client that would allow users to turn off the message that appears when you exit the client. See the attached file for a copy of the message that Windows 7 users see when they exit OneDrive. By default, the client can have this warning message enabled and users can uncheck/disable it as they see fit.

    By the default, the client can ship with the setting enabled and users can disable the warning if See the attached…
