  1. Allow OneDrive to sync files inside symlinks

    OneDrive does not sync the contents of symlink folders. Dropbox does without a problem.
    OneDrive should include the support for symlinks both on macOS and Windows.

  3. 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.

  5. Show linked file in Finder

    Our organization uses Files On-Demand so we can view all shared files and download to devices as needed. When we share a link it would be excellent to have the ability to show the file in Finder on our local Mac's and PC's. For PDF files the link is effectively useless for review/commenting within the PDF when it only opens in our browsers and still need to navigate manually to the PDF within our file structure.

  9. Enable Important folder protection on MacOS

    I bought an office package with Office and got 1TB of cloud storage yet I can't use the Important folder protection (sync Desktop, Documents, and photos folders with Onedrive) to backup and free space on my mac.

    We have it on windows and have the 'Free up space Option on Mac already. What's the issue with allowing us to choose what folders to sync outside of the 'Ondrive' folder?

  10. 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…

  11. 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).

  12. Simple, but important.

    Hi, after clicking on the onedrive icon, pop up a menu with a list of recently synchronized files. Each of files has menu, and here is one very important function to add - "open in finder". Now you can only open file, share or view online.

  13. 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.

  15. I drive in toolbar - status keep open

    It would be nice if the status you get when clicking on the toolbar icon could be kept open so I can watch large uploads...

  16. macOS app is downloading from OneDrive Files on Demand

    OneDrive on macOS with Files on Demand enabled notifies when other apps or services attempt to download from OneDrive.
    OneDrive should not be notifying and blocking native macOS services
    Company administrators should be able to manage a whitelist and blacklist of apps and services allowed or denied from downloading from OneDrive

  17. Better options on Delete Files

    "Delete on all" in context menu.

    Whenever I delete a file on my device, it will download all the files first and that consumes a lot.

    When I drag on the dock trash can, it just stuck my Dock process. Then I can do nothing.

  18. Update the menu when we click the icon so it follows MacOS design language

    Now that you have updated the icon you should focus on implementing a new menu bar that is similar to other Mac apps. OneDrive menu looks so out of place now.

  19. OneDrive updates for macOS are hanging/unavailable

    LIke everything else doled out by crApple, the OneDrive for macOS on Apple's crApp Store does NOT download; it just hangs.

    As Microsoft is undoubtedly aware, Team Crook (Tim Cook and his sheeple) redefine "horrific trainwreck" with regards to appeasing the customer.

    Since we (end-users) are ignored and don't care to waste any further time with this dead company, will you (Microsoft) kindly advise crApple to get your downloads working for those of us needing them?

    You have the money and ability to "finish off" the wreckage of Cook -- AND give us (at the very minimum) what Jobs could…

  20. 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…
