  1. Make OneDrive for MacOS a Universal app

    OneDrive for Mac is not working that well on a MacBook Pro with M1 (ARM64 Apple Silicon cpu). It works, but I experience rapid freezes and energy consumption is way too high. Can Microsoft prioritise to make OneDrive into a Universal App with Support for both Intel and Apple Silicon natively?

  2. 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.

  4. Provide native build for Apple Silicon Mac

    The current Intel build available through the Mac App Store or Office.com is unusable for Apple Silicon/M1 Macs.
    It is completely unresponsive and does not offer any functionality.
    It also causes UI and Finder instability.

    The other Office apps have been ported for Apple Silicon.
    Having OneDrive also ported would be extremely helpful for Enterprise/Education/Individual subscribers of Office 365.

  5. All the iOS App Features to the macOS App

    Currently, OneDrive app on Mac is just a tool to sync OneDrive files to Finder and Mac users have to access OneDrive via web browser to use some functions such as Personal Vault. However, web version is not convenient and speedy enough, is it? The iOS app enables us to check the sizes of files and folders at a glance, open OneDrive links very speedily without opening a web browser, access Personal Vault files securely. So we need both on Mac: current Mac app (Finder sync tool) and any features, functions of iPhone and iPad app. It might not be…

  7. Waiting for native, Apple Silicon, version of OneDrive and MS Teams

    I have to leave OneDrive and MS Teams all day, and even if they are small apps that don't consume much, they still take up extra resources to be emulated. Also, other native apps take a performance hit, every time the computer has to do a context switch between the emulated Intel code and native code.
    This also goes for all the other tiny little support applications that comes with Microsoft Office.

  8. OneDrive on Mac BigSur having sync issues with SharePoint files with read only permission

    It would sync with no problems initially, but after rebooting Mac, an error "The {folder} was not found in {path} check if this folder still exists in this location and click retry, or click stop syncing to stop syncing this folder" will show. When trying to sync the documents again, an error: "Sorry, we can't add your ["FOLDER NAME"] folder right now. Please try again." would pop up. renaming the root folder in Mac would sync SharePoint again but after reboot, same issue occurs.

  10. 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.

  12. Coalesce the OneDrive MenuBar App into one

    I have 4 onedrive accounts. Each needs its own icon - please fix it so that ideally there is one icon which when clicked shows simple status.

  13. Update the icon for macOS (Big Sur)

    Please update the icon for OneDrive for macOS (Big Sur). It looks outdated and it's not visually aligned with a new design language of macOS (it should be similar to the icon for iOS).

  15. Select/Deselect folders before first sync

    Its really frustrating that OneDrives attempts a full sync when first installed. It would be great if we had the opportunity to select/deselect folders prior to it performing the first sync.

  19. Please allow OneDrive VPP users to force DefaultFolderLocation and prevent changing it

    Enterprise customers who use the VPP distribution of OneDrive are missing out on the DefaultFolderLocation settings and forcing the location which works in Windows and the standalone version of OneDrive.

    Is there a limitation because its VPP or does it just require being added as a feature?

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/deploy-and-configure-on-macos
    The following are the conditions governing the default folder location: -Mac app store: The path must already exist when the user is setting up the sync app. -Standalone: The path will be created (if it doesn't already exist) after the user sets up the sync app. Only with the Standalone sync app…
