  1. Make it easier to choose folders for syncing (on Mac)

    Setting up folders to sync on Mac was painful for me because all folders in "Choose Folders" were checked by default... I had to go through and uncheck each one. I only sync a few folders because this is my work machine (vs. home machine, with plenty of space, where I'm fine with syncing all of them.)

    I'd like to see "uncheck all" and "check all" buttons.

  2. Mac OS OneDrive App updated on 8 May 2018 Keeps Crashing

    I have been running OneDrive App on Mac OS El Capitan (10.11.6) for a couple of years without issue. It was last automatically updated on 8 May 2018 via Apple's Mac OS App Store. Today 20 May 2018 when I booted my MacBook, OneDrive app kept on crashing on loading. I uninstalled the app and then reinstalled via the Appstore, and same problem. I used CleanMyMac app to uninstall and remove all associated fiIes, deleted the OneDrive folded and reinstalled, and OneDrive sill crashes immediately after opening. I even downloaded the app via the Microsoft website and reinstalled, and still…

  3. Sync shared files to OneDrive on Mac

    It would be awesome if files and folders shared with us by other users would be directly synced to a locally shared folder (shared with me folder) on the Mac. At present we can't directly open any file that is shared. We have to go to OneDrive on the web to access them.

    This feature is already present on OneDrive for iOS. Would love something just like the shared tab in OneDrive for iOS.

  4. Excel files are unexpectedly corrupted while using the Excel files on OneDrive for Business with Excel 2016 for Mac devices.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Excel 2016 for Mac で Excel ファイルを利用中に、ファイルが破損して修復することができない

    Excel files are unexpectedly corrupted while using the Excel files on OneDrive for Business with Excel 2016 for Mac devices.


    ■Description(内容):
    Excel 2016 for Mac で OneDrive for Business 上の Excel ファイルを利用中に、ファイルが破損して修復することができない場合がある。Excel 2016 for Mac のバージョンを、16.13.1 (180523) に更新したところ、修復をして開くことができるようになったが、別の端末では引き続き修復ができず、開くことができない。OneDrive for Business のバージョン履歴を利用しても 1.0 まで戻さなければ開けない状態で、開けていた時のバージョンには戻せない状況。

    なお、端末によってはバージョンの更新によって動作が変わったこと、および、下記の Microsoft コミュニティに今回の事象と類似した投稿 (日本語のみ) があったことから、Office クライアントに起因する可能性がある。

    <参考情報>
    タイトル : Office 2016 for mac で「'XXXX.xlsx' の一部の内容に問題が見つかりました。」エラー
    アドレス : http://answers.microsoft.com/thread/6c6eaedf-4c6b-4fd7-83e5-e98ba6232fd9

    現在はローカル PC 内にファイルを保存するとファイルが開けるため、そちらで対処するが、大変不便であるため、改善してほしい。​

    Currently, We are concerned that the Excel file may be unexpectedly corrupted then it cannot be repaired in some cases while using the Excel files…

  5. Redirect MS office applications (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) to the online version

    When I open Word files using OneDrive for Mac, they open as local files, causing me to lose out on functionality that I would get if I had pointed Word directly to the online file (such as the ability to use the Share menu to share the file or collaborative editing capabilities).

    Were I to open the same file from within Word by selecting Open, then going to my connected OneDrive account (not the local folder), then finding my file, I would get all of these nice online sharing features.

    While I've only tested this with Word, I'm guessing that…

  7. Default Settings for Sharing Links

    A User must be able to make a default setting for sharing his/her files. For example, 90% times, we need to share a link which should not be editable and must expire automatically in 7 days. There is no way to configure this. The current way is that a link shared allows editing by default and it does not expire.

  8. 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?

  9. Show approximate time until synchronization is complete or the number of files that need to be processed

    That's it. Show approximate time until synchronization is complete or the number of files that need to be processed

    I have 390Gb on my OneDrive account and I understand that it will take long time to sync everything, but I want to know how much (in terms of time of files remaining).

    P.S. Sorry for my English

  11. "Exempt this file."

    Exempt a single file, especially when seeing it 'in proccessing' by OneDrive.

    Like a dog with a bone, the app/widget will find some big VM disk file that's 8GB, and just start crunching away on it forever.
    When I see it's working on it in the list, I want to be able to 'skip for a while.' (so it processes other things), and I want a "skip forever, or never sync this file." button.

    "Manage my folders." Doesn't seem to cut it, as I keep exempting that folder and it keeps finding these files anyway.

  12. Improve upload speed on mac/OSX

    The speed with which files sync is simply embarrassing, and this is me being very mild and polite. The product, as it is, is not usable by any standards.
    So please, sort this out.

  13. 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.

  14. 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 :-(

  15. Passcode

    Make it fingerprint compatible. Also the only reason I use a passcode is because otherwise there seems to be a syncing issue. FYI

  16. Phone or system backups

    Can we expect Microsoft to come up with something like Apple's Time machine kind of backup which utilises the OneDrive as the storage and can replicate something like time machine backup.

  17. Pause a particular file from uploading

    It would be nice if you could pause a particular file from uploading so that other files will upload first.
    For example, if I have a file that is 600 MB in size and 2500 files that are 1-2 MB in size that I need to upload at the same time, I would like to be able to pause the 600 MB file so that the 2500 files can upload first and then let the 600 MB file upload last.

  18. Create a direct delete option for files (bypass recycle bin)

    Create an option to directly delete OneDrive files, thereby bypassing OneDrive's recycle bin.

  19. Quickly create a sharing link in the right click menu.

    One of the best Dropbox features is that I can quickly send a file to a friend. Right click the file, "copy Dropbox link" and I can paste it anywhere. The need to go to Onedrive on the web before sharing anything is shockingly behind the times.

  20. Finder Integration for synced SharePoint sites

    Finder Integration of the OneDrive.app works for the (personal) OneDrive folder only, right now. Please, enable Finder Integration for folders of SharePoint sites synced via OneDrive.app as well.
