  1. Share option

    Would be nice if the new update for MacOS would have a share immediately with the system in OneDrive

    For example, when you click to see more details the Share button you can choose OneDrive

    Thanks

  2. Change Menulet Icon Color for Sync Errors

    When sync errors occur, nothing is indicated on the icon that a something is wrong. The user has to click on the icon to see the sync errors. I propose that we make the icon entirely red when a sync error occurs, to get the user to pay attention and hopefully click on the icon to see the sync errors.

  5. 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?

  6. Immediate syncing for shared folders on OneDrive Business

    In every desktop file syncing app...ever...you share a folder with someone and it appears on their computer. I "share" a folder on Dropbox with someone and they get it in their Dropbox folder. I share something on GDrive someone and it shows up in their GDrive folder. Box, iCloud, the list goes on. We must have burned an hour of our time trying to figure out why clicking "share" on a folder didn't result in the folder showing up on everyone's computer.
    Lo and behold, you have to open the web client, go to the folder, open the folder, and…

  7. Add a "Launch OneDrive Web" option to the OneDrive Mac option menu

    Being able to share files on the Mac directly from a context menu in Finder would be ideal. As a workaround it would be nice to have an option in the OneDrive client dropdown to launch directly to OneDrive web so that we can share from the website.

  8. The latest Onedrive on OS X El Capitan keeps processing files forever after the system is woken up from sleep

    In OS X El Capitan, Version 17.3.6204 of OneDrive keeps showing "processing files" forever after the system is woken from sleep. I have to quit OneDrive and reopen it. The network is good. Everything else is normal.

  10. macOS Catalina uses OneDrive to run a lot of power

    masOS Catalina
    version: 10.15.3
    MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2019, Four Thunderbolt 3 ports)
    2.8 GHz Intel Core i7
    16 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3
    Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655 1536 MB
    I purchased it in October 2019.


    I have always used onedrive for business work.
    In the company is a win10 desktop computer, and did not pay attention to "power consumption" and "computer performance operation".
    When I started to run my MacBook, I realized that when I was working outside the network, my MacBook would always run at a high speed, generating heat, and the battery could be consumed by 1% in…

  11. Decrease OneDrive Mac resource usage

    OneDrive for Mac uses considerable CPU, even when there is nothing to sync. It regularly uses 100% CPU and runs batteries down 5x faster than normal, draining a MacBook batter in under 2 hours that get 8+ hours without OneDrive running. This happens to me on 3 different MacBook Pros. This is in all recent versions, but seems worse in clients supporting selective files on-demand. I truly enjoy OneDrive, but this issues is making it unusable.

  12. Be aware of the inappropriate behavior for OneDrive application via Mac.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):Mac 版 OneDrive アプリの動作について

    Be aware of the inappropriate behavior for OneDrive application via Mac.


    ■Description(内容): Mac 版 OneDrive アプリでの同期時、同期自体は正常に動作しているが、"変更を処理しています"の 画面から同期完了状態の表示に切り替わらない事象が起きている。本事象について早急な改善を希望します。

    We would inform you the event occurs that the displays is not switching from the "Processing your change..." screen to the "Sync complete" state while synchronizing with OneDrive application via iOS (Mac devices).

    For this event, the users may confuse about this inappropriate behavior even though the synchronizing operation has been done successfully. We hope this event will be corrected as soon as possible.

    Thank you for your continued support.

  13. OneDrive installation on AFPS

    Hi, I recently subscribed to O365, but cannot install OneDrive on my MacBook. The install goes fine until it needs to create a local folder to sync with, then I get the error that it cannot install because my file system is case sensitive, which it is. My research so far could not assist at all, and as I understand AFPS is designed to be case sensitive, and this is the way my machine was bought. Can you please investigate the possibility to allow OneDrive to install on a case sensitive volume, as I can do with DropBox and ownCloud?

  14. Enable automatic disk space cleanup similar to storage sense on Windows

    Enable OneDrive to automatically remove files from local drive when they haven't been used for a period of time, or when the storage is low. Similar to how it works on Windows 10 with Storage Sense.

  16. Add Finder integration to OneDrive for Mac

    I would love to use OneDrive more but it lacks one important feature for Macintosh users - i.e. Finder integration. Dropbox has had it forever and it now seems to have sprung up in Google Drive. It is available in Windows (except, of course, it is not called "Finder" integration). I just find it such a pain that when I upload files for clients I have to wait for them to upload, then find them in OneDrive in a browser to either get a shareable link or send an email to the client with a link. It is so much…

    OneDrive really need a tool for monitoring what is happening on folders. I mean which folder are sync and which not, which is syncing and, maybe, what files.

  18. Mac client to enable sync of only selected folders

    The Mac client currently lets you to sync all the files that you have on your onedrive with the onedrive folder. I have 1TB on my onedrive and only 500GB on my mac, so when i want to transfer files to the onedrive in order to free space i am not able to use the client anymore.
