  1. Proper Network Home Folder Support

    OneDrive for Mac, version 17.3.6389. Network accounts over SMB. OS X 10.11.4

    No support for network home directories. When signing in with a network account, OneDrive errors with "There was a problem accessing your keychain".

    It appears that the app is hard coded to look for the users keychain folder in /Users/USERNAME/Library/Keychains. While this is fine for local users, when working with network home directories, the Keychains folder path is /home/USERNAME/Library/Keychains. OneDrive does not recognise this, fails to write the keychain credential and refuses to work beyond that.

    This is a massive and serious issue for organisations that use network…

  4. Sync Documents, Desktop etc folders to OneDrive Option

    Just like OneDrive for Windows has with the Auto Save tab 'Protect your important folders' that would allow you to automatically back up anything saved to Documents, Desktop and Pictures folder, I'd love for it to be an option for Mac. Even a step further where additional folders could be selected by the user.

    As an admin that manages a number of users on mac, it's been a bit of a push to get users across and some of them are never going to do it the 'right' way and save into their OneDrive. By having this…

  6. On Mac access shared folders/files directly inside Finder.

    How can we collaborate between PC and Mac users if on Mac you can't see shared files/folders inside the Finder ? Other collaboration solutions allow it so why not in onedrive :-(

  7. 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.

  10. 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

  11. Make Finder Integration compatible with folder and file names containing special characters, like "á", "é",...

    Folders or files that have in the name one of this characters never shows the synced green icon. Here in Spain we have a lot of names with such characters and this provoques miss function in Onedrive. And Onedrive itself create when installed one folder named "Imágenes" and "Álbum de cámara" that shows this incorrect behavior.

  12. Reduce the number of steps to get to "Choose Folders" screen

    I am constantly dipping in and out of the "Choose Folders" to sync screen. I think there are too many steps to get to it in my opinion. It would be great if we could reduce the number of clicks and menus required.

    When working on certain projects, or if I need to reference an old project I use the "Choose Files" window to download only that folder from my OneDrive. It would greatly speed up my workflow if getting hold of project files could be simpler.

  13. 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.…

  14. Ask the user to choose sync of newly added folders when using selective sync

    I see no notification for newly added folders when using selective sync.
    It should notify and let the user choose if sync them or not, along with the current default "not-sync".

    I manually drag the folders to my OneDrive to back up my documents in Mac every single day!! It's 2020, everyone else has auto-sync already. Microsoft you'd better hurry up or all loyal customers using Mac will gradually leave your cloud base services!

  16. Mac client to enable sync of only selected folders

    The Mac client currently lets you to sync all the files that you have on your onedrive with the onedrive folder. I have 1TB on my onedrive and only 500GB on my mac, so when i want to transfer files to the onedrive in order to free space i am not able to use the client anymore.

  18. improve the OneDrive Desktop app for Mac by allowing the Finder window to display files & folders that are shared with me by other people.

    I suggest you improve the OneDrive Desktop app for Mac by enabling the Finder window to display files & folders that are shared with me by other people (as I can on DropBox & GoogleDrive). Currently, I can only see files & folders shared with me by using the OneDrive web interface.
