  1. Embed like Docs.com

    Docs.com is now cancelled, but it had the most beautiful way of embedding a group of documents with an adjustable iframe that allowed for highlight images attached to word docs and such. I have not been able to find it's equal on the web. Onedrive embeds but only as a small tile when it comes to a folder/group. I want the same beautiful embedding of docs.com but integrated into onedrive. Thank you.

  2. Date format

    Can there be a way to choose preferred date format? Here in Australia we use the format dd/mm/yyyy, not mm/dd/yyyy.

    If I enter dates in the dd/mm/yyyy format in my document I don't want them automatically modified in my one drive document. That is a reason for me to not use one drive

  3. People Tag and search on OneDrive

    We should be able to tag and search people for the photos uploaded in OneDrive.

    Auto Search 'n Tag (Microsoft Garage Project) is an app which can learn faces of your friends from Facebook account and tag and search photos automatically.

    We should have the same functionality on OneDrive or at least the photos tagged in this app or Windows Live Gallery should be uploaded to OneDrive so they can become searchable.

  4. Sync mulitple folder, not just the OneDrive folder

    This idea relates specifically O365 version of OneDrive, but I believe would be applicable to all.

    As a user I would like to be able to sync any folder in the Windows hierarchy. Currently I have to place all my files in the OneDrive folder (I actually do this using a SymLink to the directory I like but that's not especially user friendly!).
    There should be an option in the context menu of any folder to sync with the established OneDrive account associated on the machine.

    As an example, Syncplicity does this very well.

    Thanks

    Andrew

  5. resolve issues with One Drive storage upgrade

    I upgraded to the One Drive 1Tb storage but still only have 50 gb. Yesterday I was promised the issue would be resolved by this morning, but it is not. PLEASE just go into MY account and increase my storage, since you are already charging me for it. Case #1387572945.

  6. File Folder View

    OneDrive.com: Can you not have a File Folder Tree like in Windows Explorer so that navigation is easier between folders?
    Also currently the Folder Path when viewing photos is right at the top and out of view on scrolling, so we can't tell which folder we are in.
    Perhaps a navigation pane may be an idea to add.

  8. Auto save changes in OneDrive web client's text file editor

    OneDrive web client's text file editor should automatically back up any changes regularly. I closed a browser tab after making several changes to an existing saved file and neglected to hit the save button. I lost all my changes. That shouldn't happen. Or at least there should be an option to auto-save changes to files.

  9. Organise the Recycle Bin's contents by...

    To keep the files of a folder within their own folders when a folder is in the Recycle Bin. So I can easily trace and locate what I deleted more easily. If this can be done in the Windows XP/Vista/7/8/8.1/10's recycle bin, then surely it can also be done on OneDrive.

  11. Password protected files

    Hi

    I was going to suggest that maybe it would be a good idea to have password protected files that you can creat when creating a new folder could you make this available?

    Thanks

  12. Porque solamente uno puede ingresar con una cuenta personal de OneDrive. Solicito muy respetuosamente a Microsoft que por favor habiliten el

    Porque solamente uno puede ingresar con una cuenta personal de OneDrive. Solicito muy respetuosamente a Microsoft que por favor habiliten el poder incluir en One Drive así como en la aplicación el acceso a cuentas personales ilimitadas, ya que se da el caso que podemos contar con más de una cuenta personal. En mi caso así es y además cuento con una cuenta educativa también.

    Cordialmente,

  14. Let me buy storage for one drive instead of forcing me to buy office

    Just let us buy as much storage as we want instead of forcing us to buy office which I don't need and won't use. I did buy it though cause I needed storage space and I didn't even get the 1000 go of data promised

  15. Allow OneDrive to auto sync with specific folders

    I think it would be a whole lot easier if my Windows 10 OneDrive App could be set-up to auto sync with specific folders that I designate. Then it could auto sync with OneDrive online.

    I just found out that I need to manually copy whatever folders/files to my Windows 10 OneDrive, and then it will auto sync online.

    This is ok, however, it annoying to have to remember every time I create a new document or picture to upload it. Especially if it's been a while. When that happens I clear my whole OneDrive and copy over everything again…

    The download speed is horrible. Do something to make it faster! Every time I call Microsoft they say its the ISP, but its not, its the darn OneDrive server, excruciatingly slow.

  20. Large video file uploads

    Allow us to set a limit on how large a file or video should be automatically uploaded. I have a video file that is over 900MB and I would probably opt to back it up manually if given the option.
