  2. file versioning as a paid for feature.

    Onedrive is great, but if you accidentally delete something important, you cant get it back. This is especially true when onedrive doesnt download all your files (so they are not backedup locall).

    I know onedrive for buseinss users has file versioning, but it would be awesome if home users could pay for this option too

  3. Scribble PDF on ONEDRIVE desktop

    The school I work in uses the TEAMS platform for online classes and FORMS as an assessment tool. Our students send PDF files with the resolutions of the questions and we need to correct them manually. For this, we download and print the files, correct them, scan the corrected sheets and send the files through the CHAT of each student. If we were able to cross out PDF files on the computer, directly on ONEDRIVE, as is possible on cell phones, our work would be much less. I humbly ask that this functionality be offered. I appreciate the attention.

  4. Choose whether to use Microsoft Office from your Mac or the on line limited Microsoft Office

    When we open a OneDrive Microsoft Office file it really is important to be able to 'easily' flag whether you wish to use the on line limited version of Microsoft Office or whether you wish to use your own full version.

    Can this be done please?

    I am a 99% Mac user business.

  6. Update the icon for macOS (Big Sur)

    Please update the icon for OneDrive for macOS (Big Sur). It looks outdated and it's not visually aligned with a new design language of macOS (it should be similar to the icon for iOS).

  7. Coalesce the OneDrive MenuBar App into one

    I have 4 onedrive accounts. Each needs its own icon - please fix it so that ideally there is one icon which when clicked shows simple status.

  9. Launch of Microsoft OneDrive Vault on Mac

    Dear Microsoft Team, I present myself Issam, residing in Togo (Lomé). I subscribed since yesterday to your offer Microsoft 365 Personal Premium, to have a better storage capability, and have an access to your new functionality : Microsoft Vault. I just noticed that there is only the possibility to have an access through your website and through devices such as Android and iPhone. I'm using a MacBookPro, and it can really be a good improvement on your side to allow customer have a better service.

  12. sync external contents

    OneDrive on Mac version doesn't allow us to sync external SPO contents with email alias exist. Because our tenant is hybrid one, we cannot remove alias on user account. In our situation, how to use onedrive to sync external files to mac?

  13. Connect OneDrive Mac app with photo albums on OneDrive

    Allow access to albums through Mac OneDrive app from the photos folder on Onedrive.
    I use sync option on my phone to sync photos on OneDrive. If I want to review them on my Mac I have to log on to my OneDrive account through browser. It would be great to be able to access albums created on OneDrive through OneDrive app on Mac or somehow connect OneDrive photos folder with Photos app on Mac.
    Thanks!

  14. Download a folder without necessarily selecting "Always keep on this device."

    Sometimes you want access to all the files in a folder, but don't want to keep them "Always," y'know...

  15. Improve dark mode support

    When MacOS is set to automatically switch between Dark and Light Mode, the OneDrive app keeps hanging on Dark Mode and does not want to switch back to Light Mode.

    Please solve this problem.

  18. When I choose QUIT, it should quit and not prompt me.

    I already have to open a menu THEN select a non-obvious button THEN choose the quit button. Prompting to yet more "Do you want to quit" REALLY derides the user - yes, they probably want to do the thing they had to work to do. The user knows better than you, Microsoft.
