  1. Personal Vault access via MacOS just like Win10

    Loving the new feature as it is a great idea for the more sensitive files I keep on OneDrive, however I have both Mac's and PC's and can now only access the files in the vault on my Macs from the web version of OneDrive. The data should be accessible from the native file system just like on Win10.

  2. Command or plist to report current Sync status

    We need the ability to determine the current sync status of OneDrive on our fleet of macOS clients. Using a client management platform (eg. JAMF, AirWatch etc) we would like to determine the current sync status using a script or reading a plist. We can then notify our in-house support team of OneDrive sync issues, so we can proactively assist users.

    Could the current sync status be written to a local preferences file or accessible via a command line query?

    Command Example:
    /Applications/OneDrive.App/Contents/MacOS/OneDrive /synstatus

    returns on the following:
    Ok
    Syncing
    Paused
    Error

    Preference file Example:
    defaults read com.microsoft.OneDrive.plist CurrentSyncStatus
    returns…

  3. Support for MacOS 10.15 - Catalina

    Due to Apple's new privacy and security measures in the Mac OS file system in their upcoming version 10.15 Catalina. OneDrive can no longer function properly due to no longer having full access the the drive despite enabling full disk access in System Preferences. OneDrive will not be able to locate the main folder due to the 10.15 now having two separate volumes by default. One is for the MacOS system files and the other is your data drive. I'm not sure what other problems are causing OneDrive to not work but I hope it is fixed before 10.15 is…

  5. First class support for macOS AutoSave feature

    Many macOS applications I use as part of my workflows while operating on documents I keep in OneDrive synced folders use the built in macOS Auto Save feature (which includes the ability to revert to previous versions of a file) and OneDrive has some compatibility issues with this feature. I cannot keep "Use Office applications to sync Office files that I open" turned on because otherwise the afore mentioned AutoSAve-ing applications often interrupt my work with modal windows telling that "the document could not be saved. The file has been changed by another application."

    Would be really nice if the…

  8. Fix OneDrive/Office 365 integration causing Upload Blocked

    I've been hit with the dreaded "Upload Blocked" error in Word and PowerPoint when working with a business account OneDrive. Note, I haven't experienced the problem until the most recent update to the Office apps on my Mac. I've followed all steps to reset OneDrive, re-install OneDrive, logout of Office 365 in Word and PowerPoint, and always end up in the same spot. Word, PowerPoint, (and I imagine the rest of the suite) open the files from OneDrive but have the "Upload Blocked" error message as seen in the attached screenshot.

    I've also reached out to Microsoft OneDrive support who…

  9. I want to control sync on Mac

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Mac PC での同期制御を希望
    I want to control sync on Mac


    ■Description(内容):
    現状 Mac PC の同期を制御すると、すべての Mac PC で同期が禁止されるため、一部ユーザーの Mac PC で同期を制御できる機能を追加してほしい。
    Currently if sync for Mac is restricted, all Macs will be unable to use the sync feature, so I hope that a change will be implemented to make some users be able to control sync on their Macs.

    CPU usage is too high for Catalina. This rapidly depletes Macbook battery.

  14. Allow OneDrive to be installed on a case-sensitive file system

    I saw answers from dev team saying that this won't be possible because of the solution proposed. I will make it very simple for the dev team: Keep the Windows file system nomenclature, meaning if some special chars are not compatible between MacOS <-> OneDrive, then simply say that the name can't be used.

    We (Mac users) understand that there are filename length limitation on OneDrive. Just apply the rule to the OneDrive in MacOS saying that a name can't be over 100 chars.

    Finally, for the case sensitive issue, let people save their file in macOS using case sensitive,…

  16. Configure Teams library for automatic synchronisation

    Within the GPO on windows you have the possibility to pre configure the sharepoint sites that you want to add to the onedrive client when a user has access to it.
    This option should be available on a MAC OS client and then within the Plist file for example. this will be a big imporovement in enterprise environments that are using a MAC in combination with Onedrive

  17. OneDrive not working on macOS Catalina

  18. FILES ON DEMAND -DO NOT KIDNAP DOCUMENTS!!!!

    Something changed in the last week or so and One Drive has been "updating" to this "Files On Demand" which is essentially taking away the system I set up - where I could access all my documents offline on my computer and online at OneDrive.

    It has methodically been "updating" hundreds of thousands of documents - and locking up my entire computer to do it - and changing them to cloud only.

    So every time I want to look at a document, it has to access OneDrive, download the document, process the document, and then, finally, open the document. This…

  19. Clear notification when there are sync issues or when OneDrive is logged out

    So currently if OneDrive wants you to login again there is no prompt that will ask you to login again. People are only notified by the X symbol displayed on the OneDrive icon in the menubar that something is going on. People can work for a week before they even notice something is going on with their OneDrive. Same goes for sync issues. People need a better indication with what is going on with their OneDrive.

  20. All mp3/m4a files are automatically downloading when using File-OnDemand

    Files on Demand downloads all files in folders that contain mp3 and m4a files. If you even look into the folder to see what is in it, all of the mp3 and m4a files are automatically downloaded.
