  1. i think to keep the mobile onedrive more private it should have a different pin to avoid any who might have known the mobile pin to access.

    There are cases when one request my phone to use for photos, calling, or maybe working on a file in it. That may end up making me telling the person the pin to unlock the phone to avoid being called to unlock many times. That then makes my onedrive vulnerable. Therefore there is need of it having a different pin.

  2. Continue uploading after filename change

    I wish renaming a file while it's being uploaded didn't cause the upload process to restart. As it stands, if the user renames a large file while it's in the process of being uploaded, the whole upload is restarted. It would be great if OneDrive were able to continue the upload despite the name change.

  3. Ability to access the clipboard outside of Word

    I just recently lost part of a research essay because I was cutting and pasting what I had written into a new document (I meant to copy and paste it but oh well), and I could not find how to access the clipboard to find the second to last item I had cut in order to not lose that work without using an application, which could not recover what was cut before it was installed. :(

  5. OneDrive Usage and simplified use of storage

    There are three of us using my Microsoft Family account. However, I need the remaining OneDrive Storage added to my account rather than adding additional emails.

  6. Add Account - Option in the desktop Taskbar

    I tried to add the 3rd OneDrive account to my Windows 10 pro Desktop by using the Sync option in the web browser application for one drive, it didn't work. I tried to add the account from desktop and searched the "Add Account" Option there is no option to the best of my knowledge. Provide an option to Add Account in the task bar of Windows 10 pro.

  10. Save one or more link in a folder on Onedrive

    This option could be very helpful to aggregate inside a folder, homogeneous information coming from various sources.

    For instance, a user is collecting infos on the argument "ABC". He already write down a schema as docx format.
    Then he simulates some data in a xls files.

    Further researches show several web site that potentially contains helpful data for the final docs.

    At this point the user has to create a similar structure in the browser to keep tracing of URL help for his research.

    Saving links in a Onedrive folder allows to keep all infos in one place.

  11. Allow the use of Whatsapp and other social netwoks to share photos

    When working with your pc, there are very few options to share your photos, compared with the sharing options avilable in the android app. Popular apps like whatsapp, instagram, twiter or apps like evernote should be allowed

    Alternatively, the android app should include the "On this day" feature, (which is fantastic) as is the case in the windows app

  13. Sync on 4G LTE Laptop

    Please add in setting. Can sync freely on 4G LTE network. I have unlimited 4G LTE.
    Now it by default pauses.
    There is no problem in Metered Network. No way to save the setting to sync freely on 4G LTE. Must each time click allow. Torturing

  15. Shared channel between 2 different Teams

    Have a channel that would be directly accessible and visible in two separate teams. This would be a shared channel without having to create another team just to share the data. The channel would sync back and forth between the two teams.

    Example:

    Data team and a Network team.
    Have a channel for server maintenance that would live in both teams so if one team is doing something that could affect the other team, this data can be posted in there without the need to create another team with all users or having to share a link for each incident…

  16. Custom dates of Photo Albums

    Currently, when you create an Album, it groups it into the year you create the album. It would be great if you could customize the year the album was from or even have albums without a year. For example, I just organized photos from 2018, but the album is listed under 2020. Also, I have some albums like "Christmas" that there is no specific year for. It spans decades of photos.

  17. Desktop Files

    Thanks for the app. It's been a great option for storing my files across multiple devices.

    Would love if the files on my desktop could display showing the first page of each file (eg, File A, a book, displays the cover of that book - as it used to be until several weeks ago), rather than displaying the bland red and white 'pdf'.

    Thanks.

  18. Make it so that it works AAAAAARRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH..........

    , I am trying for hours to sync the drive with my home pc and it crashes everytime I try to open the folder.
    Instead of making this object expensive (upgrade) (to what??? more misery?)
    Not all products from the Mickey stable are perfect for all

  19. WHAT DID YOU DO TO THE SYNC SETTINGS??????????

    Now, if I choose not to download files, they will no longer be seen in file explorer????????? That is what it now says. Thanks, you made changes and onedrive suddenly started downloading all my files. Now my data is used up for the month. This is incompetence, pure and simple.

  20. Reduce the size of the OneDrive Sync Box on desktop

    The window is too big and I can't see the options at the bottom. Please allow us to reduce the size of the window with control - keys or with the mouse.
