  2. OneDrive search should find *folders* in addition to files

    OneDrive search, done online, returns the contents of a user's entire OneDrive environment (personal folders, shared folders, etc.). It allows filtering for doc, xls, pdf, even zip, etc...

    However it does not return folders. This is surprising.

    Many times I am searching for a particular folder that contains related files that are needed for working, sharing, etc. Further, considering the sheer volume of files one creates over time, I would argue we often give simpler and more static names to our folders, meaning they are therefore easiest to find when trying to recall slightly older work.

    I hope you can…

  3. Ability to select folders to sync at initial setup

    I'd like to be able to select the folders I want to sync to my laptop when I initially setup the client.

    Currently I am forced to download the entire Onedrive contents before I can specify that I don't want a specific 200GB folder to come at all.

    Specifically this is on MacOS.

  4. Free unlimited storage

    Google offers free unlimited storage for photos at reduced size but with great quality. Why OneDrive doesn't have this feature? I think it's very important. Also Google Drive offers more free storage 15GB instead of OneDrive's 5GB. Why we should use OneDrive when simply Google gives us better options? I would strongly suggest you to increase free storage limit and adding the option of unlimited photos at reduced size if you want people to start using OneDrive. At this moment, I will stick with Google Drive.

  6. Need "UNDO MOVE" command/feature for Onedrive to correct drag & drop mistakes

    I was trying to select some folders in Onedrive and accidentally twitched the mouse or something, and to my horror a bunch of folders and files got moved unintentionally. To my further horror, there seems to be no "Undo Move" command or feature within Onedrive. Manually correcting this is going to be a pain, especially since there seems to be no simple way to move folders "up" one or two levels...it's easy to (unintentionally) move one folder into another and make it a subfolder, but it's not obvious how to move a subfolder back to its original level.

  7. Easier embed for OneDrive for Business

    There is currently no built-in feature to generate an embed code on OneDrive for business. It is very clunky to try to set up the HTML yourself and I haven't been able to figure it out. With regular OneDrive you literally just click a button to get the code. It should be like this on OneDrive for business too!

  14. Request Files - Sharepoint Sites/ Shared Onedrive

    Request files would be even better if it could be done from shared parts of sharepoint e.g. Team/Group sites.

    When uploading some .mp4 video files, they are returning an error: "Input String not in Correct Format" for some of them, Tried renaming files to shorter names, nothing worked. It has only been happening in the last couple days, and is a bug as it has been reported by others:

  18. Photo album sort function

    Onedrive should have the ability to sort photo albums, for example, from newest to oldest, so that people sharing the album don't need to scroll through hundreds of old photos to check for new ones.

  19. Controlling downloads for files that were shared with users

    Controlling downloads for files that were shared with users


    ■Description(内容):
    現状カスタマイズ権限を作成し付与することで、共有相手にファイルのダウンロードができない状態にすることは可能であるが、併せてファイルのコピー・移動、ファイル名の変更もできない状態となる。

    OneDrive for Business 内のファイルの共有相手に Office Online 上でファイルを編集、コピー、移動、​名前の変更は可能としたいが、ファイルのダウンロードを禁止する機能の提供をしてほしい

    At present, by creating and granting customization permissions, it is possible to make it impossible for files that were shared with users to be downloaded, but this also makes it impossible to copy/move files and change the file names.

    We hope that a feature will be implemented to enable editing, copying, moving and renaming of files but preventing download of files on Office Online for the users that had files shared for them in OneDrive for Business.
