  1. Sort Onedrive without Folder Grouping

    I am requesting that Onedrive contents to be sorted alphanumeric without Folder Grouping at the top of the list.
    Currently sorting in Onedrive results in folders that are sorted and grouped above files which requires me to scroll down for a file I was expecting to be at the top of the sorted list.
    I will often name files and folders in a way that will result in a hierarchy that improves work flow.
    For example, I would name files with numbers at the beginning of their names so the files are in the order of a process to execute. …

  2. Option not to send remotely-deleted files to Trash Can (like DropBox and everyone else does)

    Hi, I just switched to OneDrive from DropBox. I'm using it to sync my files from Windows to Mac and vice versa. When I remove a file on one computer, OneDrive removes it to a local trash on all other computers and this is very annoying.

    That is: if I remove a file in cloud, I have to go through all my computers and empty their local recycle bin. This is not how cloud storages work, as if I want to restore a file that was deleted in cloud, I'd use OneDrive's trash can, not the one of my computers.…

  3. Primer sincronización

    cuando se configure la primera vez en la instalación, que no inicie la descarga de archivos, que primero se muestre la selección de carpetas ya que inicia la descarga, se bloquea y cuando se quiere retirar alguna carpeta marca muchos errores y no deja remover la carpeta desde Finder.

  4. I'm unable to setup my company OneDrive to sync on my MacBook Pro (macOS 10.14).

    I'm unable to setup my company OneDrive to sync locally on my MacBook Pro (macOS 10.14). Are there any plans to update the app to support using the native OneDrive app to sync my files locally? I'm currently using a third party app to sync my files locally which is less than ideal. Thank you!

  5. Files on demand turns off itself

    It keeps happening every week. I have been tried to re-install the onedrive client, removing the cache and plist but still no luck.

  6. Fix One Drive heating up processor for no reason.

    Fix issues where when I launch One Drive the processor kicks in to where my mac temperature starts pushing nearly 200 degrees Fahrenheit even with my fans max out to the highest RMP it can go. But when I kill One Drive temperatures return to normal. One Drive should be doing this to my computer... it should not be an intensive process at all to the point its going to fry my motherboard. Its unacceptable. Every time I launch the application I should not be needing to assume manual control of my fans and constantly monitoring the temperature of my…

  8. 添加笔记本本地化功能

    在使用onenote过程中,非常舒服,但是空间比较小,而且同步比较慢,希望能将笔记文件保留在本地,这样就可以使用U盘带走,且很方便,不需要通过oneDirver进行同步。

  9. Menu Bar Icon is too tight

    The menu bar icon does not have proper margins separating it from other icons on the menu. Perhaps give it more space.

  11. Your whole service is a joke. I have called, tried to chat, etc. and was told you all cannot help me disconnect One Drive

    Rotten service, One Drive is a cancer that cannot be eradicated and you can't get service to help get rid of it. Tried phone, chat, e-mail--hit a wall. I have Home and Office 2019 IMAC and can't use it the way I want because I can't get rid of One Drive

  15. 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

  18. Allow .oneondriveignore file in the root of a folder similar to git

    I would like to ignore certain folder patterns in a `Projects` folder I would like to sync with OneDrive. Allowing the use of a customizable text file to sit in the root of the OneDrive sync folder would allow me to create a match pattern to ignore particular folders and files similar to .gitignore file permit.

    Example:

    .onedriveignore
    -----------------
    photography/*/RAW
    photography/*/edits

    --------------------

    This would ignore all photos in `RAW` and `edits` and only sync the customer finals. However, for another project, the customer may want to pay for access to different files and thus would need to alter the ignore…
