  1. Picture Explorer

    Es wäre sehr toll, wenn es auch mit der OneDrive auf Mac OS möglich wäre, alle Bilder wie bei mobiler App betrachten zu können. Dies ist mit der OneDrive App unter Windows möglich, nicht jedoch mit der Onedrive Implementierung beim Mac. Sehr Schade! It would be very great if it would be possible to view all pictures with OneDrive on Mac OS just like in a mobile app. This is possible with the OneDrive app on Windows, but not with the Onedrive implementation on Mac.

  2. Onedrive Starts Syncing Before I can select folders to Sync

    When you setup an exisitng Onedrive, I would like to be able to select the folders before Onedrive starts syncing. During the initial sync, I can't deselect any folder (it returns an error message).

  3. OneDrive für Unternehmen

    Neben dem persönlichen OneDrive soll es auch einen OneDrive geben, auf den alle Benutzer einer Organisation Zugriff haben. Ohne, dass man einen Sharepoint einrichten muss.

  4. Different menu bar icon colors for different OneDrive accounts

    How about using color or other differentiators for menu icons when you have multiple OneDrive accounts leading to difficulty finding the correct menu bar icon for the account you want?

  6. an ignore file

    a .gitignore like file that excludes certain filenames globally wherever they’re created they follow a certain glob pattern exactly like the .gitignore files and they can recursively match using (**/) files so that log files and caches don’t get synced.

  8. The document “xxxxxx" could not be saved. The file has been changed by another application. [Save Anyway]

    This is related to files stored in a local OneDrive folder with the option "Always keep on this device" and edited with non 365 tools, e.g. a ascii text editor. When I'm straight connected to the Internet it all works normal. When I start the corporate VPN connection, everytime I press Save, I get the message "The document xxxxxx could not be saved. The file has been changed by another application" and have to press the [Save Anyway] button. This is very annoying.

  9. Don't stall when sync fails and support local Save when sync fails

    When the OS is connected to a network, OneDrive thinks it can always synchronize with the cloud. I switch network often: different Wi-Fi networks, wired lab networks, different VPNs; not all these networks have access to the MS cloud. I expect to be able to use my office docs that are stored on a local OneDrive folder with option "Always Keep on This Device" at any time and keep them open while switching network. However, when the MS Cloud can't be reached the office 356 desktop tools starts to become nervous: increased CPU consumption, stall, refuse to save locally. The…

  12. Listing URLs for sharing multiple files from OneDrive folder

    I have many files in a folder, each one a scanned image of a document used in a bibliography for a book. I need to generate a list of each filename and the OneDrive URL that can access it, to import into a separate reference tool (Zotero). This would be most helpful as I have over 600 files to document.

    I cannot find a way to do this in OneDrive Personal, although there may be an admin script possible for SharePoint.

  16. Reduce CPU Usage

    I have encountered a problem with OneDrive for Mac since at least February of 2020. The problem manifests where Activity Monitor reports >90% CPU utilization. If you click on the OneDrive icon on the menu bar, the status area of the pop-up panel will repeat the same series of messages:

    Processing 4 changes
    Processing 13 changes
    Processing 20 changes
    Processing 4 changes
    Processing 15 changes
    Processing 23 changes
    Processing 5 changes
    Processing 13 changes
    Processing 18 changes

    And then it repeats. The program is obviously stuck in a loop and it would likely be very easy to determine why if…

  20. macOS: Return to native UI interface look and feel

    On the mac OneDrive app, the interface for picking folders to sync (for example) used to be very native looking and is like the Preference panel. Now it's this ugly and slow black interface that doesn't look like macOS. Please return to a more native UI look!

    Attached is a screenshot of the native interface and the current one
