  2. Request to upload

    This feature allows sending a link to anyone requesting them to upload any file. something like PayPal when you send requesting for money to be paid.

  3. Do not update to Win 10

    I use Win10 Pro and after a bunch of updates OneDrive has been disconnected on all the computers that I use. In addition, it does not upload my files to the server. Win 10 is a mess.

  4. piece of junk

    Stupid onedrive has to sync every single file on the local drive before it lets you pick and chose which folder to syn and unsync.

    This is just a pathetic alternative to DropBox

  5. Add ability to ignore locked files from 3rd party applications

    Especially with AutoCAD DWG files there is a big problem. As soon as a DWG is opened, AutoCAD creates two lock files. These two files and also the opened DWG cannot be synchronized. If several DWGs are opened at the same time, OneDrive may not synchronize at all. It eats away at the opened files and no other synchronizations take place.
    It would make sense to ignore the opened files and instead process everything else that can still be synchronized.

  10. entregar información de sincronización detallada para saber qué está sincronizado y qué no.

    Una diferencia importante entre OneDrive y Dropbox o google drive es la información de descarga que se tiene a disposición. Por ejemplo marcar los archivos que están sincronizados en el disco local, o poder consultar qué se está sincronizando en un momento dado.

    Por ejemplo un problema que tengo es que al consultar desde distintos computadores mi carpeta OneDrive, me ha ocurrido que existen archivos que no alzcanzaron a ser sincronizados (desde un computador que ya no estoy usando), por lo tanto no es posible consultarlos en los otros computadores... lamentablemente no tenemos como saber si algo se sincronizo o…

  12. PLEASE, ask which folder to synchronize BEFORE starting to synchronize when we connect the first time...

    When i connect my onedrive on an other computer, i don't always want everything to synchronize on this one. But the sync start right away and i have to go very fast to go change the settings but somes folders have already sync. And with the problem that you cannot acces the options menu while in pauze, it dont help!

  14. Print is too small

    The default print is too small. I would like the option to make the print bigger and easier to read. Many of you software developers are very insensitive to the needs of people with low vision. Either have a "bigger text" option in the app or make the app responsive to the font settings of the apple device.

  17. Allow instant login to 'view online' from app

    When clicking on 'view online' in the OneDrive App allow it to login to OneDrive online without having to fill out the email and password again (which it already knows).

  18. Allow search for users who access via link

    Users who access shared OneDrive folders via a link provided by the folder's owner cannot search the contents, whereas users who access via login can.

    Please allow ALL users, including those that access via link, to search the shared content via OneDrive.

  19. Login automatically like steam would on windows startup.

    So basically, I hate having to fill in my email and password every time I turn on my PC, I want it to login straight away, this makes the process much quicker.
