  1. Lamentablemente la sincronización desde disco externo solo es posible con disco en formato MacOs

    La sincronización desde un disco SSD externo solo es posible si el disco tiene formato solo compatible con MacOS, Sin embargo, para quienes usamos también Windows esto es un gran inconveniente ya que no podemos usar el disco en ambas plataformas.

  2. OneDrive for Mac Files On-Demand show as using up space on the Mac flash drive

    When looking at my storage usage on my Mac it says "233GB available of 500GB" which is correct, however the visual storage bar says I am using 489GB of storage space within my "Documents" - this is because of OneDrive. Even though Files On-Demand is turned on and the majority of files are not saved locally, the Mac thinks they are. Can this be changed?

  3. I can't save the files automatically

    I can't save the files automatically already uploaded in the onedrive. When I want to turn on the autosave,it tell me to upload the file. But the file is already in onedrive.

  6. macOS Catalina uses OneDrive to run a lot of power

    masOS Catalina
    version: 10.15.3
    MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2019, Four Thunderbolt 3 ports)
    2.8 GHz Intel Core i7
    16 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3
    Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655 1536 MB
    I purchased it in October 2019.


    I have always used onedrive for business work.
    In the company is a win10 desktop computer, and did not pay attention to "power consumption" and "computer performance operation".
    When I started to run my MacBook, I realized that when I was working outside the network, my MacBook would always run at a high speed, generating heat, and the battery could be consumed by 1% in…

  7. OneDrive app killed as soon as it is started

    This is a bug report, not an idea. I understand that issues should be submitted “directly within the product”, but the issue here is that the “product” cannot even start.

    OneDrive version 19.222.1110, installed through the App Store on macOS Sierra version 10.12.6.

    If I try to start the app through the graphical interface (clicking on the OneDrive.app icon in the Applications folder)... nothing visible happens. If I try to start it through Spotlight, I get a single message “The application OneDrive.app can’t be opened”.

    If I try to start through the command line (by running /Applications/OneDrive.app/Contents/MacOS/OneDrive from a terminal),…

    here is an example of how faulty it for me at least

    Image 1 shows a range of files with naming convention that passes then with image 2 with the exact same naming…

  9. Make Office recognize SharePoint locations that are synced via OneDrive

    Right now if I open an Excel file that is stored on my Mac and is synced via OneDrive - Business (SharePoint locations), Excel does not recognize that file to be an online file. It still thinks that it is stored locally (eg no AutoSaving).

    But if I do the same thing with my personal OneDrive folder then it opens as an online file (eg AutoSaving works).

    Can you please improve the behavior of these files?

  11. Library folder name sync

    If a Library folder name is changed online (e.g., in Sharepoint), that name is not synced by OneDrive on the client though all its content is. I suggest the name of the main folder should also be synced to avoid confusion.

  14. Open link for OneDrive without using web browser.

    OneDrive for Mac often relies on web browsers such as Safari and Google Chrome. Although OneDrive for iOS (or Office app) can open links of OneDrive, and it let us use photo album in the iOS OneDrive app, OneDrive for Mac cannot.
    I suggest to Microsoft that OneDrive (and Word, Excel, PowerPoint app) for Mac can open links for group work of OneDrive without web browsers.

  15. 文件随选功能无法真正释放mac的存储空间

    文件随选功能无法真正释放mac的存储空间,虽然云端文件显示占用硬盘大小为0,但是在关于本机-存储空间中,这部分被释放的文稿仍旧被系统识别为占用系统储存,希望你们尽快了解并重视到这个严重的问题,这正导致onedrive逐渐占满我mac的存储空间。

  16. One Office365 Portal for multiple users.

    I have one office 365 portal with 2 users of one company but with 2 different brands. Brand1 and Brand2 but the invoice is on Brand1 only because the other is simply a brand name and not a Company. If I setup the 2 account on my Mac i see 2 folders with the same name (Brand1) but with different Email (Brand1’s email and Brand2’s email). The problem is that Brand1 is not connected with Brand2 and is very bad have the 2 identities mixed. More, if I setup the second account in IOS i cannot as I receive a…

  17. Integration with Spotlight

    Not sure how viable this would be, but it would be fantastic if OneDrive Files on Demand could integrate with Spotlight searches.

  19. Easy storage upgrades for oneDrive for Business pls. (1TB is a joke!)

    Make upgrading to more storage easy. I've been spending hours with Microsoft support on the phone + hours googleing a solution. Upgrading to 2TB or more is so complicated. Can you please make this easy and affordable? + Make the Mac app more stable and resource friendly. It's draining my battery so quickly + uses all of the CPU. Thanks.
