  1. OneDrive File sharing

    hi development team,
    please find the file attached with this feedback to include the functionality on the new version of the updates for OneDrive on MAC as this would definitely improve the user collaboration and the work efficiency similar to the enterprise versions of One drive (Business)

    I have tried explaining the features in more details for your reference:

    A key problem is that autosave is not enabled when files are accessed through the on drive MAC client. This has caused several duplicated files and impeded productivity severely. Furthermore, the only way to enable autosave on the files is via…

  5. Files in synced folders - Preview with spacebar

    Files in synced folders cannot be previewed with the space bar on Mac. This is a bit annoying. As well Adobe file formats are not supported.

  6. give us option to make syncable hard copy of onedrive folders that don't delete files even if deleted on the online version

    but new files can be added to either the hard copy on the macbook or the online version and will sync with each other.

  7. Please add the option "ExternalUserAndGuestSharing" in the settings UI

    Please add the option "ExternalUserAndGuestSharing" in the settings UI as this option is hard to configure to a Mac user only that has no available Windows PC or VM.

  8. Improve transfer speed by compressing a batch of files into a single file

    Currently OneDrive seems to be syncing 6 files simultaneously. This can be very long when 100.000 files are involved. It would be much more efficient if OneDrive could request a big .zip file from the server and unzip it on the mac.

  9. Please add "Commenter" mode (not just Edit or View mode) to OneDrive Word, Excel. PPT etc. files. To work like GoogleDrive Commenter mode.

    Please add "Commenter" mode (not just Edit or View mode) to OneDrive Word, Excel. PPT etc. files. To work like GoogleDrive Commenter mode, a step between, where people can not fully Edit/Change existing content, but can add comments which the owner can then either accept/decline to incorporate. You may initially assume that having Edit mode is the same but it's not, because collaborators can actually change the original if you give them Edit permissions. If you don't know what I mean, have an avid GoogleDocs user show you what I mean. IT's needed in OneDrive.

  10. Sincronização para ao encontrar erro

    O sincronismo do Onedrive simplesmente para ao encontrar um erro, por exemplo, um arquivo que começa com um espaço em branco.
    Mas para toda a fila de sincronização.
    O Onedrive poderia sincronizar os outros arquivos da fila e que estão OK pois isso causa vários tipos de problema como arquivos que nunca foram sincronizados simplesmente porque o usuario não sabe que o Onedrive está parado por causa de um erro...

  12. You need to support El Capitan

    Please continue to support El Capitan, it is the highest OS my otherwise very fine iMac will support, While Mac still support it you should too.

  14. onedrive在Mac上的使用,保存在onedrive的文件无法保存到本地,或者不知道保存到本地什么地方去了

    MacOS X10.15.5,onedrive是Microsoft365家庭版包年服务,我保存的word文件无法在本地找到,即使我关闭onedrive里的文件随选--该功能说可以关闭后会把onedrive文件同步到本地,但是我还是无法在本地找到我的word文件。
    碰到问题的顺序是,新建word保存,选择路径文档-onedrive-个人,然后在onedrive图标点开可以看到该文件,网页onedrive也可以看到该文件,但是本地没有,本地也没有文档-onedrive-个人这个文件夹。
    如果可以的话我希望可以在关闭word时保存,同步保存到onedrive和Mac本地

  15. que se pueda guardar un archivo arrastrando a la aplicación y escoger el directorio donde guardarlo

    Que desde la apliación de onedrive tanto en mac como en windows se pueda arrastrar un archivo y se pueda guardar en el directorio deseado.
    Lo mismo que pueda buscar un archivo sin necesidad de acceder a la web.

  19. Choose the frequency of syncing

    I'm using One Drive to store files I'm rescuing from a 1terabyte drive. Because there are about 80k files and the recovery software doesn't save the folder structure, I'm uploading everything to one folder. What this means is that One Drive is always syncing. If I could choose to sync that folder once a day at a given time it would save bandwidth, or even allow it not to sync unless I make a change, in which case sync would be manual.

  20. No green icons. Show red icons instead for files that have not sycned.

    Instead of showing green file icons in finder, why not show red file icons for those that have not synched.

    Generating green icons takes forever and are immediately lost when quitting.
