  1. 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 :-(

  2. Passcode

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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. Save as dialog should open the folder in which the original file sits

    When opening an Office file from an OneDrive (or SharePoint) synced location and saving it with "save as", the same folder should open up. Just like when working on the local file system.

    Currently it opens the Desktop or any other location when doing so.

  9. Play avi files please

    You used to be able to play avi files. As a matter of fact I have some avi files already there and they play. Please make that a feature as it takes forever to convert files to mp4 or mov.

  11. Please make OneDrive work on Mac OS X High Sierra

    Please make the OneDrive work on High Sierra. I can't even complete the installation, it won't allow me to pick a folder. I just subscribed to Office 365 and it is advertised as having OneDrive available on the Mac subscription, and I could never have guessed it wouldn't be available on a version of the OS for such a long time after its public release.

  13. Moving Folders in Sharepoint for Mac Users

    Please can you let Mac users having the ability to move folders and copy folders in SharePoint like Windows users have.

    I was refereed to the Document Connector by MS support, but you can't do it through there.

    Its a shame that Mac Users have such limited tools and it makes everything a chore to do. GoogleDocs is so much easier in comparison.

  14. Color code menu bar "cloud" icons

    When you set up OneDrive-personal and OneDrive for business, they show up as two identical "clouds" in the menu bar. It would be nice, like in Windows, if they are two different colors, so when you click on them you know what one you are selecting. Or some other distinguishing difference between the two.

  17. Add kerberos support to the OneDrive and other Office login authentication

    When I login to Office 365 on Chrome or Safari Kerberos SSO makes the process smoother. Please allow the browser that the Office 365 clients like OneDrive use to pass Kerberos sessions.

  18. 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".

  20. Enable storage to SD card as Mac users use Nifty minidrive as (semi)permanent expantion

    As the Mac has limited storagespace I have installed a SD card (SD-EVO) with a Nifty minidrive with an SD card of 128GB. It is removeble it sits actually permanent in the laptop.

    But it is not possible to select a removable drive.

    Request: Give a warning when selecting a removable station but please give the option to select is anyway!
