  2. Stop improving things into worse

    I am constantly frustrated by some strange little updates from Onedrive iPad version. Every time I update reading "new features, new improvements, bug fixed" they actually means more bugs to me!! After a terrible upgrade yesterday to the newest version, I had no idea why onedrive converged my handwritten notes written with apple pen into low resolution, which had never happened before i updated. now I had to erase everything and wrote them all over again or my colleague wont understand what I wrote inside the pdf! The two pics show how this resolution changed my writings, and there are…

  3. Better user feedback.

    Sync screen indicates "processing changes" for 6.5 hours now at 100% CPU. Let the user know that your still doing something!

  4. Get Freeup Space to actually work on Mac

    Get Freeup Space to actually work on Mac

    When I select free up space on a folder, it remains on the mac and takes up space. The whole point is not to use up my mac HDD.

  6. Enable Mac files to be stored on OneDrive

    As a Mac and Office 365 user, it would be great to use the 1 Tb storage on OneDrive for backup and other purposes. But it is nearly totally useless for Mac. Many Mac files names cannot be stored on OneDrive. It seems overwhelmingly obvious that a backup/storage service for Mac users should accept Mac file names.

    Microsoft should not be relying on user feedback for obvious issues like this. It is grossly impractical and irrational to require Mac users to rename thousands or more files to store them on OneDrive.

    I never use this service I'm paying for because…

  8. Files On Demand not working with Finder

    Files that have the little cloud icon next to them, meaning they should not be local on the hard drive, are showing up in Storage Management. I have a 128GB hard drive and Storage Management show 270GB of documents. Most of these documents that are showing up are supposed to be in the cloud only. I'm not 100% sure how much storage I actually have left on my computer because the numbers clearly don't add up properly.

  9. dejar una carga de archivo en pausa,

    debería aparecer la opción de dejar una carga de archivo en pausa, así cuando se trata de archivos pesados, se puede poner en pausa para que. En el archivo adjunto, es una captura de pantalla, y tengo 3 archivos de 3 giras cada uno, y me gustaría poner en pausa los 3 para darle paso a otros archivos y así carguen mas rápido.

  10. Initial Sync of >1000 file folder

    There appears to be an issue where if you post >1000 files to a folder in OneDrive it gets stuck and becomes unresponsive while it works on the folder.. then eventually catches up and starts the sync process. Can this be improved?

  12. Timeout for files blocking upload (vs. eating up CPU)

    I sync my iTunes library with OneDrive, so I always have my music backed up. Unfortunately, that means whenever I have iTunes open, OneDrive cannot upload the files. I always have to close iTunes or pause OneDrive. Usually I'm reminded to do so by OneDrive eating up 30% of my CPU and the fan of my laptop (a Microsoft Surface Book) screaming loudly.

    Can't this be automated? If a file can't upload, OneDrive could timeout instead of persistently consuming so much CPU. I imagine most people don't have the presence of mind to open their Task Manager and sort by…

  14. O one drive no MAC poderia sincronizar também as etiquetas criadas no MAC e no IOS de forma a facilitar as buscas nos arquivos na nuvem

    O one drive no MAC poderia sincronizar também as etiquetas criadas no MAC e no IOS de forma a facilitar as buscas nos arquivos na nuvem. Este é o único ponto de incompatibilidade que tenho hoje.

  15. Menu items at the top of menubar

    Why can't the menu items be at the top so it's quicker to open folder etc. Also, add preferences so you can choose folders faster.

  16. Merge multiple OneDrive accounts on MacOS

    I love the OneDrive functionality and use it daily for work and University studies. My Mac menu bar is filling up brave and quick. It would be great to have my OneDrive icons merged so I could just jump between Drives when required.

  18. Allow filenames to contain any and all characters.

    The current restriction on file naming is archaic and outdated.I purchased OneDrive to upload and archive all my working and personal files - only to discover that hundreds if not thousands of files can't be uploaded for this reason. And it is not an option to rename the files. Too many, and those names would be linked within other applications that they're used in.

  19. Date modified

    Fix the OneDrive sync client for Mac so that the date modified column accurately reflects the time the folders were modified in OneDrive on the web after folders are imported from external services (e.g. Box). At the moment, the date modified column in finder represents the date the folder is created locally on the Mac - not the date it was created/modified in OneDrive (web).

  20. Please incorporate OneDrive and Teams on the update list on Mac's AutoUpdate app

    MacOS versions of Microsoft Office use the Microsoft AutoUpdate app--why are Teams and OneDrive not included in that update channel?
