  2. Multiple accounts - include organization

    I typically have a personal, and 2 organizational accounts setup with OneDrive. When the authentication drops (i.e., I get logged out and have to re-authenticate), it is difficult to determine which account I need to log in to. There is nothing (i.e., organization name) that indicates which organization/account authentication is required. If both organization accounts fail, it is either on a hit/miss basis that I figure it out, or restart OneDrive.

  4. Notify User File / Folder Uploads have Successfully Completed

    2019-Aug-31-am-09-57-35

    Hi mate, :)

    Problem: Onedrive doesn't Notify User File / Folder Uploads have Successfully Completed like Google Drive that have a pop up message that shows progress and success rates for each file. This causes user anxiety and confusion.

    Solution? Why not a pop up stay on notification box to communicate to user that files have been successfully uploaded.

    An idea / product is structured as your problem and a solution.

    Though this solution may be unsuitable but this does highlight your problem that affects your $$$ that shouldn't be ignored.

    Why not devise your own alternative solutions to…

  5. File name restrictions

    The file name restrictions are still in place. There shouldn't be any special character, symbol, space before or after file. It is very disappointing especially when you are uploading hundreds of GBs and with 460 file name errors. That makes you stop the whole process. Please allow any type of file names like dropbox/google drive etc.

    Thank you.

  6. Limit number of simultaneous uploads

    It's just taken me over an hour to sync my onedrive, because there were a large number of files added and each one sloooooowly uploaded simultaneously. Not only does this eat into my bandwidth for ages, but it means no single file became available on other devices. Allow us to set a limit of the number of simultaneous uploads, which will mean they upload more quickly before moving on to the next files. This, combined with the existing idea to prioritise uploads and/or pause individual file uploads would enhance the syncing experience significantly.

  8. Cartella remota che visualizza anche i file condivisi

    Nella cartella remota OneDrive non vengono caricati i file che altri hanno condiviso con me. Grosso limite rispetto a Dropbox

  9. Icon for when one/some file(s) in a folder are downloaded

    When in finder, a cloud icon appears when files are stored in the cloud. However, this icon appears on folders even when a single file is available offline within that folder. An icon for folders that have single or several files downloaded within would be helpful in determining what has been downloaded and where it's located when viewing your files in Finder.

  10. Support certificate based authentication for OneDrive in an enterprise environment.

    Support certificate based authentication for OneDrive in an enterprise environment for ADFS authentication similar to all other Office products on Mac.

  12. Properly support the macOS file system (special characters, aliases, symbolic links, case sensativity, etc.)

    OneDrive is 99% useless on a Mac because the macOS file system is not properly supported:

    1) Files are limited to Windows naming conventions. I't impractical to rename 100's of files to complete a sync

    2) Aliases get copied as unusable files and symbolic links are ignored.

    3) If the drive is formatted as one of Apple's/unix's case-sensitive formats, they're unusable with OneDrive.

    These are the deal killers, items like support for tags, etc. would be nice also.

  14. Avoid storing uncompressed files contained in zip files.

    Hi,
    the default behavior when clicking on a zip file is the uncompress it in the current folder. Then all the uncompressed files are uploaded to OneDrive.

    It is not necessary to upload them since they are already contained in an archive.
    If a new file appears in folderA/fileB , it should be possible to check if there is a file in the parent folder called folderA.zip that contains an entry for fileB with the same checksum. Then you could store fileB as reference pointing inside folderA.zip and save the disk, cpu and bandwidth resources consumed by synching.
    I know…

  15. Improve UX

    One of the functionalities I use most often to save space is the "Choose Folders" function. Unfortunately this is hidden deep in the app and should be in the dropdown next to "open folder" in the menu.

    Also buttons opening a website should be marked visually with an icon (external link).

  16. Add link to show list of deleted files on "Remove Files from All Locations" dialog

    When you have deleted more than 200 files, a dialog is presented titled "Remove Files from All Locations" that gives you the option to remove the files from OneDrive or restore them to your device.

    Before taking either of these actions, I would almost always want to see what files will be affected.

    Please add a link/button to open a display with a list of these files.

  17. Allow Renaming Local Folder

    Allow renaming the local folder so the OneDrive folder name doesn't always turn out so long (especially if you have Office 365 at work). "Your Name - Your Employer's Name" doesn't look good in the Finder sidebar.

  19. Allow Copy Link without entering a recipient name

    Currently to share a link outside of the OneDrive menu, you have to enter a recipient name and then click "Copy Link". But, sometimes I just need the link to share in another way. Please allow Copy Link without needing a recipient name.

  20. CPU usage too high on Mac.

    The CPU usage is too on Mac computers. CPU usage on MacBook Pro is too high. CPU usage is at 20% all the time and the fan is running constantly. One Drive drains the Battery in one hour. If I close the app everything is fine.
