  1. Just make it possible, to sync specific and different folders from your mac into the drive.

    I want to sync different folders from my mac into the onedrive and not only sync one specific folder, where all data from the rootfolder will be saved.

  2. To translate OneDrive for Business in more languages (French needed)

    I would like to use a French version of OneDrive for Business, as all my computer and softwares are. Apparently it's not available yet. That would be nice to have access to the applications in our own language. Merci de traduire l'application en français.

  3. Improve upload speed on mac/OSX

    The speed with which files sync is simply embarrassing, and this is me being very mild and polite. The product, as it is, is not usable by any standards.
    So please, sort this out.

  4. Icon for sidebar in finder

    Dropbox and iCloud have dedicated icons for when they are placed in the finder sidebar. When the one drive folder is placed there, though it has a custom folder icon inside the finder window, it reverts back to a standard folder icon. I suggest that you find a way to make this be the actual one drive icon.

  6. Make the OS X app more like the iOS version

    Update the OneDrive osx app to match the current features of the ios app. The OS X app should support the consumer version and OneDrive for Business. This is very frustrating to not have this feature amongst all of your devices. Why is ODB still in Beta?

  7. Ad link to Onedrive website in Onedrive Icon

    Next to showing the amount of storage used, link to settings and open folder at desktop, it would be helpful to have a direct link to 'your' Onedrive website when clicking on the Onedrive Icon in the taskbar.

  8. MAC OS X : Create a upload bandwidth limit so we can use the internet while one drive uploads. QoS !!!

    MAC OS X : Create a upload bandwidth limit so we can use the internet while one drive uploads. QoS !!!
    One drive manage to consume all upload bandwidth which means you do not have enough bandwidth to request to view another site or use another service at the same time.

  9. Preserving Mac OS X (file system) tags and extended attributes (xattr)

    Unless I am missing something, it appears as if OneDrive is not honoring and preserving file system tags (see [1]) or even extended attributes (see [2]).
    Granted, these features are difficult to maintain over different OS and file system types. But if files and folders are synchronized within the same environment, it is very disturbing, to say the very least, to see this (meta) data simply discarded by OneDrive.

    Thank you.

  11. Allow syncing of files larger than 10GB (e.g. Photos Library in OS X)!

    Allow syncing of files larger than 10GB (e.g. Photos Library in OS X).

    I was disappointed to learn that the reason my OneDrive never leaves "Scanning Files" in OX X Yosemite is that OneDrive does not support files over 10GB.

    I'm frustrated, because I paid to upgrade my storage amount so I could use OneDrive to backup my Photos Library in OS X, since I use OneDrive for all of my personal backups/syncing.

    This seems like a simple request!!!

  12. Continue to improve sync speeds, they make the product unusable

    I signed up for Office 365, thinking I could use it to replace my Google Drive. However, after a couple days of uploading data to One Drive, I have come to the conclusion that I won't be able to use it since it is so slow in uploading files. I uploaded a batch of files from my Mac to Google Drive last week, and it took one evening to finish. I am now trying to upload the same batch of files from my Mac to One Drive, and I'm 24 hours in and less than 25% done. It also appears…

  17. File Updating (or Uploading)

    Just switched from Dropbox. In Dropbox, when I make changes to a file, it updates (or uploads) very quickly as if it only syncs the changes made. In OneDrive, I notice (by the size of the file) the entire file is being updated (or uploaded AGAIN). It's time-consuming and data wasting. Hope this is dealt with in the next update to OneDrive.

  18. Only one suggestion that everyone will agree with... Feature parity with the Windows version. That should be the baseline.

    Only one suggestion that everyone will agree with... The Mac version should always have feature parity with the Windows version. That should be the baseline. We shouldn't have to ask for this. We should simply expect it.

  19. to add functionality to Mac app to open OneDrive in web browser, without signing in etc.

    add functionality to Mac app to open OneDrive in web browser. There is only option to open folder in Mac and it's quite bothering, because everytime when I want to see files that are not synced I have to open browser, type web adress, sign in etc... and it is quite bothering. Opening OneDrive in web browser by pressing one button would be much easier.
