  1. Allow user to set the sort order to ALWAYS be by date modified

    I couldn't care less when a file was created, if someone is sharing something I want to know when it was last updated, having to modify the sort by EVERY time I use onedrive.com is rather annoying.

    If a user changes the sort order, persist the sort order.

    Also permanently leave the modified date, why this only shows when sorting by modified is beyond me.

  2. Keep "Shared with me" preview link consistent with the direct image link

    The situation is – some design engineers share drafts of images as part of their process. Unfortunately, we are finding the default sharing invitation link behaves differently than opening the file in Shared with me. We would like to generate the sharing invitation link with the same URL structure as Shared with Me.

    The end result is the design engineers have an inconsistent print/save/viewing experience in the sharing invitation view.

  5. Opening a editable document should default open on Edit Mode, NOT Preview Mode. Unhelpful, much.

    I like how on Google Drive you can open an editable doc in Editor mode and work straight away,

    but on One Drive it opens on Preview Mode, so you have to click on "Edit Doc", then click on "Edit In Browser", and feel like you've just been robbed of 5 seconds of your life.

    There is no possible way One Drive can justify such a silly default set up. Change it. Today. Please.

  6. Increase the maximum file size

    With increasing 4K video file use could the 10GB per file cap be lifted to say 30GB so that full length 4K 'Movie' type files can be stored. 10GB only holds around 55mins,

  7. Support Chrome OS Filesystem Provider API

    Add support for the Chrome OS Filesystem Provider API (http://blog.chromium.org/2015/06/file-system-provider-api-for-easier.html).

    This will provide Chromebook users with more reasons to continue using OneDrive over other storage providers.

  9. Copy multiple files/folders through web interface/iOS app

    I'm very surprised nobody is mentioning this - please add support for copying multiple files and folders between OneDrive (Personal) locations, through onedrive.com and your mobile apps (eg iOS).

    At the moment, for copying a hundred photos you need to select one photo, click on 'Copy', specify the destination folder, click on Select.. and then do this whole process again another 99 times.

  10. Share photos with geotags

    ATM, only the logged in owner can see photo locations, share recipients cannot. We need an option to also share geotags.

  11. canon mark iv

    Showing Thumbnails or treating CR2 (Canon Raw Photo Files) as photos is currently unavailable on OneDrive. I save all my photos to OneDrive and have recently upgraded to Canon 5D Mark IV. My raw photo files on OneDrive no longer show up on OneDrive. Can Microsoft update and add support for the newer Canon files?

  12. Offline folders in iOS app

    Currently the Onedrive app for iOS only supports designating individual files for offline viewing. We need the ability to set whole folders as offline.

  13. Folder colour

    Please change or allow users to modify the Folder colours. The black folder colour is depressing.

    Thanks

  14. Provide an option to download file directly

    Offer a "download link" of a file or folder.

    This is useful if somebody wants to download file/folder as zip.

    Today I cannot find this option and share link takes user to onedrive webpage.

  15. Please Improve Downloading Data Stability Via IDM

    Everything is good but downloading data from One Drive via IDM or any other down-loader isn't good , it doesn't tell us total file size and also remaining time to complete, and mostly it download files withing the browser instead of down-loader.

    please improve this and fix the problem we need a fast and full speed for downloading like Google Drive and also need file size and remaining time , for more details please check the attachment.

  16. Copy shared files

    I've got my family photo collection uploaded to onedrive and the folder shared with my wife, who has Can Edit permission. However she cannot copy files to another folder. She often creates picture projects to have prints ordered and will create a new folder as a temporary location, now, she can't do that and I'm in the doghouse.

  19. Second account and login for OneDrive

    I am suggesting that it is permitted to be signed into more than one OneDrive account. I currently have a work account and would appreciate signing into my personal account without having to sign out of the other.

    Regards,
    David Grant
