  4. Listing URLs for sharing multiple files from OneDrive folder

    I have many files in a folder, each one a scanned image of a document used in a bibliography for a book. I need to generate a list of each filename and the OneDrive URL that can access it, to import into a separate reference tool (Zotero). This would be most helpful as I have over 600 files to document.

    I cannot find a way to do this in OneDrive Personal, although there may be an admin script possible for SharePoint.

  6. open all the usage rights in the Chinese mainland market

    I hope that one drive can open all the usage rights in the Chinese mainland market as soon as possible. For example, one drive currently does not support ‘online viewing’ and must use a VPN; it is also not possible to view the contents of the personal vault on a mac computer. This is very inconvenient, and if onedrive can be improved, it will be very pleasant.

  9. Don't stall when sync fails and support local Save when sync fails

    When the OS is connected to a network, OneDrive thinks it can always synchronize with the cloud. I switch network often: different Wi-Fi networks, wired lab networks, different VPNs; not all these networks have access to the MS cloud. I expect to be able to use my office docs that are stored on a local OneDrive folder with option "Always Keep on This Device" at any time and keep them open while switching network. However, when the MS Cloud can't be reached the office 356 desktop tools starts to become nervous: increased CPU consumption, stall, refuse to save locally. The…

  10. The document “xxxxxx" could not be saved. The file has been changed by another application. [Save Anyway]

    This is related to files stored in a local OneDrive folder with the option "Always keep on this device" and edited with non 365 tools, e.g. a ascii text editor. When I'm straight connected to the Internet it all works normal. When I start the corporate VPN connection, everytime I press Save, I get the message "The document xxxxxx could not be saved. The file has been changed by another application" and have to press the [Save Anyway] button. This is very annoying.

  12. an ignore file

    a .gitignore like file that excludes certain filenames globally wherever they’re created they follow a certain glob pattern exactly like the .gitignore files and they can recursively match using (**/) files so that log files and caches don’t get synced.

  14. Option To Quit Onedrive If Drive Is Unavailable, Instead Of Breaking

    if my OneDrive folder is located on an external drive which is not plugged in, every time I open OneDrive or boot my Mac, OneDrive comes up with the error that it cant find the folder with options: try again or completely sign out of the program to go through set up and sign in again. neither will work because the drive is not connected (USB HDD) and there is no way to quit or cancel OneDrive, cant even close the error window, the only thing I can do is force terminate the process via activity monitor, which is very…

  15. OneDrive Config saved on OneDrive instead of Local Machine

    Configuration of synchronized folders is lost if OneDrive needs to be reinstalled. Furthermore, config can't be copied. / kept in sync with other computers.

    Proposal is to store the OneDrive & SharePoint configuration (all synchronized folders and all other settings) directly on User's OneDrive account. If OneDrive client is installed then end user can be asked if the configuration should be used or a new empty configuration should be created.

    Backup & transfer of configuration is not possible or not easy to find. Anyway, persistence inside OneDrive makes even more sense.

  16. Can we get logging on OneDrive status on the web?

    Use case here is for troubleshooting purposes. It would be nice to see if OneDrive is updating files, which files it's updating, etc.

    This would have the benefit of reducing support calls or the need to call support in the first place.

    I would add that macos client is truly awful at showing status as well. I can't reliably count on it to tell me what it's doing, or even if it's signed in. I've largely given up on the client telling me what it's doing and just restart the **** thing when I'm unsure.

    The Windows client is better…

  17. Different menu bar icon colors for different OneDrive accounts

    How about using color or other differentiators for menu icons when you have multiple OneDrive accounts leading to difficulty finding the correct menu bar icon for the account you want?

  18. OneDrive für Unternehmen

    Neben dem persönlichen OneDrive soll es auch einen OneDrive geben, auf den alle Benutzer einer Organisation Zugriff haben. Ohne, dass man einen Sharepoint einrichten muss.

  19. Onedrive Starts Syncing Before I can select folders to Sync

    When you setup an exisitng Onedrive, I would like to be able to select the folders before Onedrive starts syncing. During the initial sync, I can't deselect any folder (it returns an error message).

  20. Direct Download to OneDrive

    A Finder extension that allows direct download to OneDrive - bypassing the local Mac drive -- like Google offers for Google Drive for Teams would be very welcome
