  1. Show partially sync files/folders

    I have OneDrive and Dropbox running at the same machine. Still couldn't get rid of Dropbox.

    The main problem I'm facing: When I go to options and select 'Choose folders to sync'

    The takes a little time then starts. Sad thing is I have no idea if the folders I'm seeing are totally synched. There should be a green, blue icon somewhere to help us with that.

    Thank you.

  3. Indicate the "remaining time to download" for large picture folders

    When dowloading multiple jpeg pictures at once in Mac OS, the size of the total download is not determined and therefore there is no way of knowing what is the progress of the download. As a result, it is easy to be mistaken to think that nothing is being dwonloaded until the downloadn is complete much later.

  4. Allow you to choose a folder in your mac (and PC) you just want the contents to be on the cloud

    It would be great if could upload a folder to the one drive's cloud and only view its content on you mac (or PC). As long as you want some file from this folder, it would be automatically dowloaded.

    This would be useful for people who doesn't have much space left in the hard drive and would like to share some content between the hard drive and the cloud

  5. Proper Network Home Folder Support

    OneDrive for Mac, version 17.3.6389. Network accounts over SMB. OS X 10.11.4

    No support for network home directories. When signing in with a network account, OneDrive errors with "There was a problem accessing your keychain".

    It appears that the app is hard coded to look for the users keychain folder in /Users/USERNAME/Library/Keychains. While this is fine for local users, when working with network home directories, the Keychains folder path is /home/USERNAME/Library/Keychains. OneDrive does not recognise this, fails to write the keychain credential and refuses to work beyond that.

    This is a massive and serious issue for organisations that use network…

  6. Cached Sync

    Please add a sync chached options. On laptops with limited space because of ssd's this is really needed. If my onedrive is 1tb big i cant sync it all on my laptop. so why not allow a user defined cache for example 10gb and then 10gb of files will be kept on my laptop hdd and older files that i havent acced in a long time will be deleted but the recent files are still there. up to the cache limit i set.
    pcloud.com is able to do it i am sure you guys are able too.
    thanks

  8. Adding a top-level folder when offline

    I'm using the new Mac Client, v: 17.3.6389. I have chosen only certain folders to sync. When working offline, I have created a new folder at the top level. This new folder does not automatically upload/sync to my OneDrive, and it does not show-up in the list of files/folders that are available to sync in the app preferences.

    It appears that new folders created offline, at the 2nd level, automatically pick-up the preferences from the level 1 containing folder. However, there is no way to choose the sync preference for a new level 1 folder.

    I tested turning on ALL…

  12. Maximum path length doesn't fit to system and OneDrive.com

    Mac OS allows paths about 1024 characters. Mac (and Windows) OneDrive client allows only 256 characters. OneDrive.com doesn't have such limit. In modern days 256 characters path is very limiting.

  16. Add a "Launch OneDrive Web" option to the OneDrive Mac option menu

    Being able to share files on the Mac directly from a context menu in Finder would be ideal. As a workaround it would be nice to have an option in the OneDrive client dropdown to launch directly to OneDrive web so that we can share from the website.

  17. Stop application shutdown when filename is too long

    The mac version for years would stop if a single filename was too long, then last year you handled it better by displaying a list of files that hadn't synced but continued to sync other files but today it's back to the original method of closing the application when the filename is too long. I am a developer I can not move/rename the files; the long files are automatically generated and need to be named in a certain way.

    Can you either restore the list of files that haven't synced method or implement some sort of ignore file/folder list.

    Ultimately…

  18. Fix the error opening Word documents on organizations with 8 bits characters using OneDrive Next Gen Client

    Hello,
    The One Drive Next Gen Client doesn't support 8 bit characters in the name of folders. In particular, the accent characters in the OneDriveBusiness folder that includes the organization name.
    In case of organization names with 8 bit characters, we can't open Word documents from the syncronized folder.

  19. OneDrive Improvement Ideas

    When working with OneDrive between my PC and my Mac. There are several times I have to exit the application on the Mac and then restart the application for it to refresh before documents will show up. We need either a refresh button or shorter refresh rates.

  20. Bundle OneDrive Next Gen for Mac with Office for Mac during downloads

    We issue corporate Mac's with the applications all loaded, but we now have to require people to sign in to the App Store with their own Apple ID. Yes, we have the plist pre-set so they will see the correct button, but it would be so much cleaner to have all this setup before our users even get their machines.
