      working on it  ·  Douglas Pearce responded

      Hi, folks. We’re sorry this is taking a while. We’re working with the Outlook team on this now.

    • Implement a folder tree like Google Drive. It would make navigating and moving files around much easier.

      I'm surprised this isn't already a feature. Clicking through folder labels to get to where I want to go is irritating. It'd be much better to expand a folder tree and go right where I need to. We need a navigation pane for a more friendly UI experience.

      • Add the ability to people tag

        I would like the ability to tag faces on pictures that have been uploaded to OneDrive. Currently Windows Live Photo Gallery has this ability and is generally really good at guessing faces. Also, Facebook has facial recognition that is about 97% accurate.

        My request is:
        -add ability to group pictures by people, adding this as an option along the top row, where we currently only see "Photos Albums Tags" right now. Any untagged picture will show in 'untagged'
        -add facial recognition to suggest tags for pictures
        -make this facial recognition at least as good as that in Windows Live Photo…

        • Provide more than 1TB storage...PLEASE!

          1TB is not what it was. 4k videos and SLR photos will fill that up surprisingly quickly.

          I'd like to increase my OneDrive storage by more than 1TB (e.g., 2TB). But, you don't offer paid service for more than 1.05TB?! And the Azure path is too difficult. This is forcing me to look at other non-Microsoft solutions like Odrive. Why would you push me in that direction when I'd rather stay?

          • Add ability to add metadata tags to files

            Adds the ability to tag documents with metadata tags and to add another function to search in these metadata tags.

            For users it will brings new opportunities how to organize their data. It's a different approach compared to storing files only in a directory structure.

              • increase the file upload limit

                Please increase the file upload limit from 15GB! With ever increasing file sizes from the media workflow, especially with 4K content, the 15GB limit can be quite a bummer at times!

                • Add the ability to view pictures on a map

                  On Facebook you can go to www.facebook.com/(username)/map and view your pictures on a map. You see number indicating how many pictures and where, and you can also geotag and add additional pictures to places, and see check-ins. You can then zoom in and see your pictures specifically according to geotag information.

                  I would propose:
                  -add the ability to geotag picture based on typed address, latitude/longitude information, or clicking directly on a map
                  -add ability to see all facebook check-ins here
                  -integrate Bing Scrapbook and update it to work with Windows Phone 8.x
                  -add ability to "Play" a group of pictures,…

                  • Facial recognition

                    It'd be great if OneDrive could recognize people's face, and if it could automatically create folders of people and all the photos where they appear. Like Google Photos

                        • Create a Linux OneDrive client please

                          I know this has been suggested before but the voting was closed.
                          Many workplaces have a mixed deployment and would find it useful to sync across various platforms. I use Mac, Windows and Linux every day and I'm sure that many other professionals do too. It can't be that hard to recompile the OSX version for Linux, can it?

                          • metadata

                            Return the functionality for having custom views of metadata on our OneDrive for Business files, which is present in Classic View. The new interface removes this ability that our business users have adopted to provide multiple ways to organize their data. The result of not having this back before completely sunsetting classic view is that our users will have a long list of files at the root and have to completely re-organize their files into folders. Huge impact to all of our users in having to rework something they just completed. Metadata is core to SharePoint philosophies in organizing information…

                              OneDrive should allow users to subscribe to a shared folder and receive notifications when new content is added to that shared folder.

                              This way you can share a folder once and keep adding content to it.

                                Everytime you link an Excel workbook to other workbook, OneDrive changes the reference to the file, making reference to an online files. However, if one the Owrkbooks are in differente folders inside OneDrive, the link will break, even if you try to open the file in the computer containing them. That is a HUGE problem

                                    Thanks for the suggestion and we’ll take a look. Please make sure any bugs are filed with support (use the cog on the website or shake the mobile app).

                                  • Sorting photos

                                    When sorting photos by date, the app seems to sort by date modified as opposed to the date when the photo was taken. When looking at pictures, it is more helpful to sort by the date the picture was taken. It would be helpful if the app could read the meta-data of when the picture was taken and sort that way instead of by when the file was created or modified.

                                    • Improve navigation of files/folders in OneDrive.com AND add notion of pinned favorite files/folders

                                      The modern-UI influenced File Explorer looks very simplistic and is good if you are on a touchscreen. It would be awesome if the online File Explorer would include similarities to the Windows Explorer with a structured folder layout on the left where you can pin favourites and fastly switch back two folders/create new folders.

                                        Hi, I see this as two suggestions:

                                        1) on the web add a tree view similar to Windows Explorer. We aren’t actively looking into creating a tree view, however if switch to the list view you should be able to traverse a deep directory structure pretty quickly.

                                        2) enable pinning of folders/documents so you can get to them quickly. The notion of favorites and being able to get back to folders quickly is something we are looking into. You can do this today using Office by pinning a document to the top of your Recent Docs list.

                                        thanks
                                        Angus

                                      • Show captions on photos in shared albums

                                        I have added captions to the photos in a fairly large album, thinking that when I shared it with others they would see them. But the only way that they can see them is by opening the information pane on each photo.

                                        Captions are a vital part of sharing photos. They should be visible:
                                        1) In the slide show
                                        2) On each full screen photo, with an option to turn them off
                                        3) On the thumbnail screen, perhaps as tool tips

                                        • folder color

                                          It would be nice for the user to be able to assign different colors to individual folders to improve their readability. I guess this has probably been requested yet,n but I could not find any previous post dealing with that subject.
                                          Thanks.
