  1. Folder Badges

    It would be really helpful to see which files and folders have already been synced by seeing those folder badges like dropbox and box.com have. Can OneDrive implement a feature like this please?

  2. Allow Renaming Local Folder

    Allow renaming the local folder so the OneDrive folder name doesn't always turn out so long (especially if you have Office 365 at work). "Your Name - Your Employer's Name" doesn't look good in the Finder sidebar.

  4. Allow SELECTIVE Folder Selection BEFORE OneDrive Starts up

    OneDrive drives me crazy. If the drive ever stops, or is quit, it wants to setup again. I point it to the folder I have already been using, and then a FULL sync wants to start where I only sync certain folders. When I go to preferences to change to a selective sync, the app tells me that a sync is in progress and I have to wait until all the files sync. I DON'T want to sync everything before I can change the settings. This happens repeatedly on any of my 4 Macs we use in our family.…

  5. Known folder sync feature request

    We would like to put ~/Documents and ~/Desktop (for example) in MacOS on OneDrive for Business without actually moving these folders elsewhere. We would request you to make this feature as early as possible.

  6. 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.

  8. Folder Backup for Mac OneDrive

    Please add Folder Backup, just like on windows10 OneDrive to the Mac version, I think there is enough interest, if you read through here, it's just all presented in such different ways, you wouldn't realize that there are enough of us that want this feature. I use both a mac and a pc, and having this feature keeps both computers perfectly synced with each other. I was able to do it myself on Mojave, using an app called MacDropAny, however, this no longer works in Catalina.....
    Please add this to Mac OneDrive, I use all Microsoft office365 products on both…

  9. Sync both the Onedrive folder and another folder

    New laptops have a small ssd inside and people prefer to use an external drive. Please allow to sync both the Onedrive folder inside a computer and another folder inside an external drive, or make the possibility of support a symbolic link or give us the possibility of transfer data via sftp.

  11. Enable Important folder protection on MacOS

    I bought an office package with Office and got 1TB of cloud storage yet I can't use the Important folder protection (sync Desktop, Documents, and photos folders with Onedrive) to backup and free space on my mac.

    We have it on windows and have the 'Free up space Option on Mac already. What's the issue with allowing us to choose what folders to sync outside of the 'Ondrive' folder?

  12. remove warning: inode_val: object : invalid bsd flags

    Hello,I have found a bug on onedrive for mac. I use Mojave and APFS. I reproduced the issue with the volume encrypted and also without encryption (Filevault). The bug is the following, the folder gives a warning in DiskUtil with the following format:
    warning: inodeval: object (oid 0x417de2): invalid bsdflags (0x10)
    I have verified is the onedrive folder using the following command from mac terminal:
    find / -inum 4292066

    where 4292066 is 417de2 in decimal

  13. Stop forcing OneDrive folders to Favorites in the Finder Sidebar

    Every time I reboot, OneDrive forcefully places a shortcut to it's folder in the Finder Sidebar Favorites section.
    I'd like to have the choice of disabling this.

  14. Immediate syncing for shared folders on OneDrive Business

    In every desktop file syncing app...ever...you share a folder with someone and it appears on their computer. I "share" a folder on Dropbox with someone and they get it in their Dropbox folder. I share something on GDrive someone and it shows up in their GDrive folder. Box, iCloud, the list goes on. We must have burned an hour of our time trying to figure out why clicking "share" on a folder didn't result in the folder showing up on everyone's computer.
    Lo and behold, you have to open the web client, go to the folder, open…

  15. Synch of the OneDrive folder to the SD-Card

    For OneDrive for MacOS: we miss the ability to move the synch of the OneDrive folder to the SD-Card.

    It would be great if you can implement such a function for the mac users.

    Best regards

  17. Allow to sync folders outside the OneDrive Folder

    Allow to sync folders outside the OneDrive Folder. Would be very useful to be able to choose any folder in my computer to have a backup in the cloud or at least use a symlink to back them up.

    boom! it's done  ·  Ryan Hoge responded

    Happy to announce the availability of this feature earlier this year. Please continue to send feedback and suggestions our way.

  19. Make it so we can add shared folders as a child folder of our main onedrive folder that syncs to my Mac/Finder integration

    When I choose to sync a shared folder with my computer (Mac with Finder integration enabled,) it creates a second Onedrive location instead of allowing me to create the shared folder as a child folder of my main Onedrive folder

  20. OneDrive folder icon is using old macOS folder icon

    Just a minor minor thing... The OneDrive (left) is the old folder design and the one in the center and right is the new design.
