  1. modify behavior of dual log-in screen for Onedrive

    When I browse to OneDrive.com and click Sign-in, it opens a box asking for my email address and no password. I don't know why this window doesn't ask me for my password as well, because when I hit Next, it takes me to another page where it asks me for my email address again, with the password.

    The troublesome part is that the Form item in focus is the E-mail, and not the password. Which means I have to use the mouse pointer and click on the password field to shift the focus, and then enter the password with the…

  3. Add a location to directly access the new "Albums" on the left menu pane below photos.

    The Album feature was a great addition. Not sure why you guys chose to hide it un the all photos screen. As users create albums to share and organize, it would be nice to be able easily access them.

  4. allow buyer of 1 tera storage the ability to upload much larger number of files than currently allowed

    If you sell 1 tera space, why do you only allow 1000 files (or 10 G, whichever is smaller?) for each uploading????? I have about 80,000 photos in about 400 G to upload. That is why I am paying $10 per month for the 1 tera storage space in OneDrive. But, at the pace you allow me, I have no idea when I will be able to get all my files uploaded. Even if I had all my files in neat 1000-pieces chunks (folders), which of course is not true, I still need to upload 80 times, when I should…

  5. Add "cut" context menu on onedrive recycle items like on windows recycle bin.

    On recycle bin, ability to cut or more items to other folder should be given along with "restore". Also if file can be previewed or opened to see its content, that will be great.

  7. Add Script or Query to manage file

    Since in Windows 10 we don't have Placeholder, it would be better we can select file using script or query.
    For example, I have 200 files which have same prefix and want to a folder, I can only select it by clicking one by one.

  8. Attachment via Onedrive

    I'd like to be able to compose an email and attach a document that stored in Onedrive. Not send a Onedrive link, since recipients don't want to log in or even click on a link and then download it. OneDrive for business now has this.

    Thanks

  10. Auto sync error recovery

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    同期の自動修復機能について

    Auto sync error recovery


    同期クライアント (OneDrive.exe) にてファイルやフォルダーの同期が正常に動作していない場合に、自動で同期の修復が行える機能の追加を希望します。

    Implement auto-recovery feature in OneDrive for Business sync client which hopefully detects and fixes sync errors automatically. That would be helpful when files/folders are not syncing correctly.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  11. Add Microsoft Store link to app switcher

    In the upper left corner there is an icon with square tiles in it. When you click on it, you get a bunch of tiles for different places you can visit within the Microsoft family (Outlook.com, Office Online, etc...). Can you add the Microsoft Store?

  12. Show better progress state during upload in webbrowser

    The upload progress of bigger/multiple file using a webbrowser (such as Chrome or Internet Explorer) is not very informative. There is no progress in terms of percentage of megabytes uploaded, nor which file is currently beeing uploaded.

    Improve markup tool feature for OneDrive app


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive アプリのマークアップ機能にて PDF ファイルを編集する際に、以下の動作となり編集がしづらくなった。
    以前の OneDrive アプリのバージョンでは正常に動作していたため、機能の改善を希望します。
    ・ 手書きの線の精度が悪くなり、以前より滑らかな線が描きにくくなった。
    ・ PDF ファイルの編集後、手書きで描画した線と PDF ファイルの向きが一致せず、描画した線の回転が正常に動作しない場合がある。併せて一部の線の表示が消えてしまう場合がある。
    ・ 手書きで描画した線の一部分のみを消すことができず、一度に描画したすべての線が消えてしまうため、細かな修正を行うことができない。

    We request you to rollback the markup feature for OneDrive app to previous version because it became hard to edit PDF files since app behavior has been changed.
    -Accuracy of freehand line became degraded and it became hard to draw a smoother line than before.
    -After we edited a PDF file, it seemed that freehand lines are not placed in the right orientation in the file (a drawn line cannot…

  15. I suggest you remove the first page of Login on onedrive.com,

    It doesn't really make sense to ask users to type their Microsoft address then direct them to a normal login page not different than the other online services. Even though the first page is really nice looking, it's a unnecessary step... If you want to keep it add the option to type also the password there and go directly to OneDrive after that

  18. Sharing folders using email address and not the link

    I want to share a folder and select "add people" option from "manage access".
    This option doesnt give me the possibility to enter the email address of the person i want to share the folder with him, but only it gives me the link.
    The same like selecting "1 link giving access"
    There is no difference between selecting "add people" or "1 link giving access" :(

  19. Structure for OneDrive - at least by developer guidelines

    Many apps use OneDrive to backup their data. But since there is no (recommended) structure for OneDrive they typically end up polluting OneDrive root directory.

    I would like to see something like "AppData" directory in OneDrive root. That would be the place for apps data like settings backups etc. This would leave the rest of te OneDrive for everyone's personal tastes.
