  1. 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.

  2. 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.

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 It looks outdated and it's not visually aligned with a new design language of macOS (it should be similar to the icon for iOS).

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  10. Choose whether to use Microsoft Office from your Mac or the on line limited Microsoft Office

    When we open a OneDrive Microsoft Office file it really is important to be able to 'easily' flag whether you wish to use the on line limited version of Microsoft Office or whether you wish to use your own full version.

    Can this be done please?

    I am a 99% Mac user business.

  11. Scribble PDF on ONEDRIVE desktop

    The school I work in uses the TEAMS platform for online classes and FORMS as an assessment tool. Our students send PDF files with the resolutions of the questions and we need to correct them manually. For this, we download and print the files, correct them, scan the corrected sheets and send the files through the CHAT of each student. If we were able to cross out PDF files on the computer, directly on ONEDRIVE, as is possible on cell phones, our work would be much less. I humbly ask that this functionality be offered. I appreciate the attention.

  12. file versioning as a paid for feature.

    Onedrive is great, but if you accidentally delete something important, you cant get it back. This is especially true when onedrive doesnt download all your files (so they are not backedup locall).

    I know onedrive for buseinss users has file versioning, but it would be awesome if home users could pay for this option too

  14. In the last 12 months One Drive has improved a lot however there is one thing that's anoying:

    There must be an issue syncing because I can see that the application is constantly syncing what I think are two very small files 48.3kb. I can't address the issues because it doesn't tell me what or where the files are.
    I'm sure that if it failed to sync the files it would then show what they were and I would be able to address the problem.

    My suggestion is the list the files that are being synced rather than just the completed files.

  15. Eject local onedrive folder in finder on mac

    This would greatly help with letting the Mac and other apps, know when one drive is offline - the way it works now is pretty great and I don’t think to much should or needs to change however having the option to eject the local folder in one drive would be nice :)

    Especially for people / photographers who use smart previews in lightroom ❤️

    Right now to use lightroom smart previews the only work around i have found that makes my computer think my local onedrive files are offline is to quit OD and rename my local OD folder…

  16. 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.

  17. OneDrive for macOS folder sync icons

    OneDrive icons sync status are not visible anymore. It is not possible to know the file status (Always sync, cloud, etc.) as explained in the Microsoft support https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/sync-files-with-onedrive-on-mac-os-x-d11b9f29-00bb-4172-be39-997da46f913f.
    Some other people seem to meet the same issue https://www.reddit.com/r/onedrive/comments/l66tp6/onedriveformacosfoldersynciconsdisappeared/

  18. Onedrive is absolutely the worst app on Macos

    Onedrive is absolutely the WORST!!!!! app on Macos
    - Files on demand takes way too much CPU and renders my system unstable
    - It's almost impossible to disable Files on demand because it says it is synching.
    - It's impossible to only select a couple of folders to sync while Files on demand is disabled
    - I can only modify settings if synching is enabled. But I cannot edit a lot of settings while synching is enabled WTF???

    your product SUCKS BIG TIME!!!

    I often leave suggestions for software, but this is reeeeeaaallly the worst experience ever. And it is…

  19. The installation allows you to select the folders to be synchronized on startup.

    The installation allows you to select the folders to be synchronized on startup. The problem is when you have a disk 256GB in a macbook and 1TB data in onedrive..
