  4. Add "Shared" parent folder to shared folders

    For folders/files that have been shared then "added to my onedrive", please place these under a "Shared" parent folder so that it is clear which are our own and which are shared files/folders.

    For example: If Joe shares folder Crayons with me, and I add it to my Onedrive, it appears as ./Crayons. Please change this to ./Shared/Crayons.

  5. Folder Color

    Could you add color to the folders? Currently, they are a boring gray. Box uses yellow folders

  8. 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?

  10. 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

  12. Dark OneDrive file folder to match System folders on Mojave and up..

    While OneDrive now supports dark mode in the menu UI, the OneDrive finder folder itself doesn't darken when other system folders do -

    The custom cloud icon folder requires special tagging from Apple to be dynamically darkened as part of enabling Dark mode, otherwise the folder sticks out as bright blue amongst a sea of dark blue folders when Dark Mode is enabled. This is visible and an aesthetics issue in Finder, Dock/Stacks etc. Please work with Apple to correct. OneDrive is a core part of my productivity kit and needs to match my OS!

  13. Local OneDrive folder on iPad that syncs automatically with the OneDrive cloud folder and the local One Drive folder on a laptop.

    With iOS11 now supporting local file folders, local OneDrive folders on both a laptop and an iPad that sync with the online OneDrive folder would allow both devices to work on and off line, with latest changes available on either device, with and without an internet connection.

  14. Synce multiple mac folders with OneDrive

    It would be great if within OneDrive you could sync multiple folders on your mac some within and some outside of the OneDrive folder. Examples of folders that you might not want to move include your iTunes folder, your photos, or data files from specific programs that look to a specific location on your mac.

  15. 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.

  16. Adding a top-level folder when offline

    I'm using the new Mac Client, v: 17.3.6389. I have chosen only certain folders to sync. When working offline, I have created a new folder at the top level. This new folder does not automatically upload/sync to my OneDrive, and it does not show-up in the list of files/folders that are available to sync in the app preferences.

    It appears that new folders created offline, at the 2nd level, automatically pick-up the preferences from the level 1 containing folder. However, there is no way to choose the sync preference for a new level 1 folder

  17. Remove Nested Folders From Camera Roll

    Before, camera roll was one folder where all the files from the phone were uploaded to. Now, with nested folders, it makes it very clunky to find the photos you want to on the desktop. Both Windows and Mac allow sorting by date natively, which is much easier to use than clicking through folders after folders.

  18. 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.

  19. 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?

  20. Stop syncing a folder while its downloading

    Changes to synced folder must take effect immediately, even when a folder isn't fully downloaded.

    I forgot to tell the app not to sync a huge folder. Now it is taking a LONG TIME trying to download it, and won't allow to change that folder to not sync until it has completed. This is crippling my system!
