  1. OneDrive Personal Vault Needs To Allow Users To Lengthen 20 Minute Limit

    Uploading large files like videos and other files is impossible when there is a 20 minute limit and it keeps timing out. OneDrive shows the drive is Inactive when in fact it is still active then I have to keep logging in. I spent days trying to upload files and it keeps logging out if I don't select to continue. If I am away from the computer it will log out and I don't even know it has been idle and not uploading.

    Why does OneDrive consider it idle and inactive when it is trying to upload then the 20…

  2. Could you please put a filter to put items in Alphabetical order in the "Copy To/Copy Items" sidebar that comes up on the right.

    Could you please put a filter to put items in Alphabetical order in the "Copy To/Copy Items" sidebar that comes up on the right after clicking "Copy To". Right now there is no way to alphabetized the items in that menu. See the screenshot for the area mentioned. It's the menu on the right side that says "Copy 1 Item".

  5. Search bar should support standard file matching patterns e.g. *.mp4 , work*.docx . These are basic ls/dir search patterns.

    Users are used to searching for files on their machines using standard dir/ls patterns e.g.dir .docx or ls -la p.mp4.

    The Onedrive searchbar however doesnt support such search patterns. Many phone/camera image files are named following date convention e.g. 20191913_01.jpg and it would be a great convinience to find these by just searhching for 2019*.jpg.

  6. Please add a feature to choose version histories for bulk deletion

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    バージョン履歴を選択して一括削除する機能を追加してほしい。
    Please add a feature to choose version histories for bulk deletion


    ■Description(内容):
    現在バージョン履歴を削除する場合、すべてを削除するか、バージョンごとに1つずつ削除する方法しかないが、選択して一括で削除する機能を追加してほしい。
    Currently there are only 2 ways of deleting version history, which is to delete everything, or to delete versions individually one by one, thus we hope that users can choose the versions and then bulk delete those choices all at once.

  10. Scroll down Photo System is Shoddy&Cloud sync is strange

    When you go into your photos on web& scroll down through dates&years on right of screen it is extremely hard to navigate with no normal drop down arrow to help aid the downward motion so you can whizz from 2020 to 2007 in seconds whether you want to or not unable to select which phot you want swiftly.
    You also need to be able to click on that photo and add it to a folder that is the replica of the folder you have saved on your computer& is linked to the cloud otherwise what its the point!

  14. accidental click on picture (preview) should not clear SELECTION state

    Opening a picture should not clear SELECTION state.
    When selecting quite a few pictures one after the other, someone may accidentally misclick which results in 1) the picture being opened, and once we click close ( X ) to return to the folder 2) selection states are cleared. So we have to start over again.

  15. OneDrive Shared File Exceeding Office for Web Limits

    When files are shared via OneDrive that exceed Office on the Web limits (ie Excel > 50MB), instead of sending the user to an error screen that does not allow them to continue (if, for example, the desktop application is not detected), give them the ability to download the file instead. Currently the only button available is "OK" and does nothing useful.

    Exact error message is... "Couldn't Open the Workbook","Sorry, we can't open your workbook in Excel Online because it exceeds the 50MB file size limit."

  16. It would be so nice to see file sizes and other attributes in the web view

    Show file information such as size and attributes in the web view (e.g., a folder I do not synchronize but view only in the web portal)

  17. Restore the functionality/ability to rename, delete or print etc. from the search window.

    Restore the functionality/ability to rename, delete or print etc. from the search window.

    This feature has been lost in O365 in my folder or a shared folder. No 3 dots to select display the drop-down menu selections, and no tool bar at the top to make a selection as well. Why would this be removed? My vote is to put it back!

  18. Suspect file can't be downloaded

    I upload some files and can't download because OneDrive thinks it's suspect file or a file with zero bytes. Therefore I've lost a lot of my files.

    Let me decide if I want or not download it. I know what I'm doing and should have the ability to turn off this feature. And a feature I can't turn off it's not a feature, but a limitation.

    I want to download all my files and quit OneDrive for a better solution, but I can't. OneDrive is a piece of "cheat": it's hard to upload files, almost impossible to download them, no…

    If you specify [Anyone who knows the link] and share using the "Copy link" function, it is difficult to understand because it is only the URL to access the file, so the file name is also included. I would like to add the function that will be done.
