  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. Bring the Choose folders option back in the OneDrive syncing setup

    I am referring to this MS site where it says that choosing the folders before the setup process is done is available (and it used to be!): https://support.office.com/en-us/article/sync-files-with-onedrive-on-mac-os-x-d11b9f29-00bb-4172-be39-997da46f913f

    Even when using Files on Demand, it takes a long time to setup OneDrive when you have a 160 GB folder. Choosing what folders to sync was a helpful step in this process.

  3. Allow changes to the icon displayed in finder when syncing on a Mac PC

    Allow changes to the icon displayed in finder when syncing on a Mac PC


    ■Description(内容):
    Windows PC で同期したときは、個人の OneDrive for Business は雲のアイコン、共有されたデータはビルのアイコンで表示されるが、Mac PC で同期したときは、共有されたデータが通常のフォルダーのアイコンで表示されてしまうためわかりにくい。
    共有されたデータであることを明確にするために、OneDrive for Business や SharePoint Online の管理上の設定からアイコンを変更できる機能を追加してほしい。

    When syncing on a Windows PC, an individual’s OneDrive for Business changes to a cloud icon, and shared data to a building icon, but when syncing on a Mac PC, shared data does not change from the normal folder icon, which makes it hard to understand that syncing is happening.
    In order to make it clear that these items are…

  6. 2 Personal One Drive accounts on Mac

    I don't understand why you are not allowed to use 2 personal one drive accounts on one Mac computer. It doesn't make sense. I am paying for the yearly subscription so why am I not allowed to have the app with 2 accounts as opposed to using the web interface.

    onedrive made my Macbook to an always-on fan monster!

    although there are already a lot of posts, microsoft still is not reacting on any of the posts. otherwise they should have found a solution to fix this issue making cpu/fans that busy! really unbelievably ...
    ... but this is microsoft (as it has ever been, just do own stuff and never listen to paying customers, etc.)

  8. Ignore files and folders from sync

    Can we have a decade old idea to ignore some files and folders from sync?

    e.g. .gitignore or .nosync files

  11. default "save as" directory should be the same as the file, not the last directory used for OneDrive

    On a regular computer, Office apps remember where a file came from. When you press SaveAs the default directory is the directory the file came from, which is very often the place you will save the new version. With OneDrive Save As opens the last folder used in OneDrive even if it has nothing to do with the file you are editing. The chances that directory is relevant are minimal. So if you are not careful to change the directory you will save in a seemingly random location and lose the file. From a usability perspective this is a nightmare…

  12. OneDrive for Mac Files On-Demand show as using up space on the Mac flash drive

    When looking at my storage usage on my Mac it says "233GB available of 500GB" which is correct, however the visual storage bar says I am using 489GB of storage space within my "Documents" - this is because of OneDrive. Even though Files On-Demand is turned on and the majority of files are not saved locally, the Mac thinks they are. Can this be changed?

    In the Windows OneDrive sync client, there is a function to pause syncing when on pay-as-you-go networks, which is convenient for users who make use of tethering when outside.
    However, this setting does not exist on the Mac OneDrive sync app, and because of this, users must manually pause/resume syncing, which is not convenient.

    Please add the function to automatically pause syncing when on…

  14. Allow Opening & Use Of Files Without Downloading Files (Continuous Working in the Cloud) - Similar to Box

    When logging into OneDrive and using Finder to open up my files, every time I open up a file (Adobe Photoshop usually) it automatically downloads the file to my harddrive. I have used another file storage company Box and they allow the file to still be in the Cloud without downloading it to your desktop. THIS WOULD BE SO NICE!! Especially since harddrives are so small nowadays... I don't have the time to download and then re-upload all of the time since I work with a team of designers.

    Please look into this as I know that a lot of…

  18. Ability to chose which folders I want to sync before I have to sync everything?

    I have OneDrive with 1000s of folders

    I want to install ONEDRIVE on my Mac and have ONLY 2 of those folders synced to my Mac.
    When I install ONEDRIVE, it syncs EVERYTHING, before I chose the only 2 folders I really want to sync
    When I chose PAUSE SYNC to give myself time to chose the 2 folders I want, the Setting Menu Options are deactivated (!)
    When I try to chose the folders while Syncing it tells me WAIT UNTIL SYNC IS COMPLETELY FINISHED to make your choice…..

    Ideally, the app should ask which folders to SYNC at…

  19. Allow users to sign in

    Using the latest (as of this writing) OneDrive client on Mac, attempting to sign-in with my organization's Office 365 credentials tells me that the account doesn't exist. However, opening the Office 365 Portal in a web-browser, then using the link to open OneDrive results in a successful sign-in to the desktop client.

    Signing in to OneDrive seems like elementary functionality. Might be a good idea to enable that.

    It seems in previous versions, the language in the desktop client specifically said "Sign In with a Microsoft Account", and it has recently been changed to "Sign in to OneDrive" or something…

  20. Stop taking up internal Mac SSD disc space (clicked free up space option - does nothing)

    I had to remove the syncing folder months ago as it was utterly wrecking havoc on my computer by duplicating files and even though I clicked free up space (i.e. remove the files from my computer and keep them accessible via the onedrive cloud sharing folder), the files remained on my computer taking up internal disc space. This is all over blogs I've read concerning the same problem. I've now had to purchase my own cloud service so that I can back up and sync properly without the inconvenience of Microsoft and Apple not agreeing on various apps and software…
