  2. Support for older versions of OS X !

    8% of macs in use today use 10.11. or older.
    All these are ruled out for oneDrive client.
    I'm trying to study with 10.11 and since m$ pulled out Office2016, I can't autosave with Office365, since I can't install oneDrive to 10.11...

    Logical support would be that all OS'es that are supported for Office 365, would be supported also for oneDrive!
    Since auto-saving in Office depends on oneDrive.

  4. Problem with OneDrive in Finder

    I use two OneDrive accounts on my Mac, both of which are under Favorites in the Finder.
    "OneDrive" and "OneDrive - <business>".

    My OneDrives are listed under favorites in this order: first "OneDrive" and then "OneDrive - <business>".
    When I start the OneDrive app, the "OneDrive - <business>" shortcut under favorites in Finder moves above the "OneDrive" shortcut.

    Can you please fix this?

  5. Generate a text file with the errors. I copied a directory with 6468 items. OneDrive loaded 6322. I do not know which 146 did not load.


    1. Generate a text file with the errors. I copied a directory with 6468 items. OneDrive loaded 6322. I do not know which 146 did not load.


    2. In another case, the folder structure loaded, but none of the individual files loaded. It does not make sense that each group of files have to be manually inserted into the OneDrive folder.


    3. Do something to automatically (and uniformily) replace banned characters. Adobe does this by replacing ":" with "-". It does not require user intervention and maintains the integrity of the process. It is a far better solution than simply ignoring and not…

  7. UI problem

    Some punctuation characters in the UI appear incorrectly. For example, "You're all set" appears as "You’re all set", and some others as well.

  9. Provide a feature to move my files, photos from other cloud drives into OneDrive

    Provide a feature in OneDrive to move my personal files, photos, videos, etc. into my OneDrive folders. As of now, I had to use some tools or do it manually by downloading from those drives and then uploading onto OneDrive. Thanks.

  15. Battery save mode to reduce CPU usage

    We need the same functionality that exists in Windows 10 to pause syncing when the Mac is on battery. Thanks.

  16. 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.

  17. Fixed - endless processing changes issue

    OneDrive for Business - separate OneDrive Finder entries for the company SharePoint site library and my personal OneDrive. In the personal OneDrive, there was a media file (*apple.plist or something like that) that was the issue. As soon as I set all files in that folder to "free up space", then the endless loop stopped. Hooray.

  18. Notification when sync is complete.

    It would be great to know when files have completed being uploaded so a link could be shared. Currently when you upload, you need to remember to share the file at a later stage. A notification would be ideal.

  19. MS Word for Mac File Creation Date changes every time document is viewed on OneDrive/Office 365

    This is a particularly annoying bug. Does anyone know if there is a the solution?

    I've put a large number of older files I'm currently working on on my Mac into OneDrive. Every time I view/edit one of them using another device with MS 365 connectivity, or OneDrive online, the Creation Date changes to the current date and time.

    I'm referring to the creation date of the file itself, the file metadata. It becomes the present date every time it's viewed on a different device.

    For instance say I've created a file in August 2012 linked to research that is…

  20. How about designing a product that works? That would be a novel idea for Microsoft.

    Have a system that actually works and isn't just a lot of confusing jargon. Here's another thing, when I want to sign on to Office365 I should be on Office365 and not a page trying to sell me Office365.
