  1. Please give us the "Share a link requiring a password" option on the right click menu.

    We have the "Share a OneDrive link" right click menu option. But it would be very useful to have a "Share a OneDrive link requiring a password" option.

    Once selected from the right click menu you would get a native non-web dialog which allows you to specify the password, confirm the password, and even allow you to specify a download timeout.

    Once you select the "Share" button the link is placed on the clipboard.

    You can then paste the download link into an email and send it to someone.
    Once the recipient clicks the download link they are prompted for…

  2. Please give me the ability to unshare from the right click menu.

    Please give us the ability to unshare a shared file. Please add this feature to the Windows Desktop OneDrive right click menu, the OneDrive mobile apps (Android/Apple), and the OneDrive web site file list.

    Idealy we should also be able to see if a file has been shared or not shared in the Windows Explorer's detail view so we don't have to right click to find out which files are shared or not. But if it is shared we should be able to unshare it by right clicking and selecting Unshare.

  3. Please allow users to download shared files directly from the link rather than requiring you to go to the OneDrive web site.

    Currently when you share a file in Windows you can get a HTTP link and you can paste that link into an email. But when the recipient clicks the link they are taken to the OneDrive web site rather than directly downloading the file. I'd like to be able to allow people to directly download the file. Other file storage sites like DropBox allow this.

  4. Allow the user to disable Sync.

    I wish the OD-application had a feature, so I could chose whether to sync to or from the server, or even disable it all together.

    For example, sometimes I want to be able to fiddle around with my files, without worrying about having the master-copy destroyed.
    And at other times, I want to be able to change the master-copy, without auto-syncing all my other devices.

    make instructions to home users simpler I have never had onedrive work as advertised especially using multiple devices which results in loss of files when editing on different devices. I am currently deleting office 365 from all my computers and discontinuing use of onedrive. my new windows laptop 8.1 has gone mad duplicating and causing errors on working systems as a result of onedrive. rendering it unusable.

  12. sync problem auto resolution

    I can't understand the meaning of showing all the sync problems, without a button to resolve the problems. Just now I synced my one drive to my PC and it's showing 169 conflicts. Current method to resolve, open 1 file by 1. It is so annoying. Just keep it simple, get me the latest version from cloud or update the one that I have on my drive. Think simple and productive folks!!

  17. change dial tone

    Please change the dial tone. The load beep sound is outdated. It is so annoying that i decided to switch off the key pad tone. I prefer the same sound as the key pad sound.
