    Function to restrict use of OneDrive for Business to Teams chats

    I want to restrict use of OneDrive for Business, so that users may only use Teams chats to post files.
    Currently, if you restrict OneDrive for Business, you become unable to upload files on Teams, so please make it possible to either restrict access to OneDrive for Business while allowing use from Teams, or…

  8. Ability to duplicate a file in a folder

    At the moment if you want to duplicate a file in a folder in OneDrive on the Web you have to Copy the file and then navigate through the folder structure to then Paste the file in the original folder. A Duplicate option would avoid this Copy, Navigate, Paste activity

  12. .oneignore to ignore and exclude files and folders

    Make it possible exclude/ignore of subfolder and files on a regex based syntax. Like .gitignore. It would be great to add a .oneignore file and can exclude all "**/vendor" folders.

  13. Improve pedagogy and transparency

    Everything should be explained and detailed so that the user can use OneDrive better and faster. On the other hand, it would be helpful for the user to have a clearer view of the concept of “cloud” across the service, and this could help people regardless of their level of understanding and use. Everything must be done so that everyone can see the entire flow of data. Finally, I think OneDrive should be more intuitive.

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

    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.

  15. Need to choose folders to NOT sync to OneDrive

    There REALLY needs to be a better way to select individual folders/files to NOT sync to OneDrive from your computer (i.e. keep the files on your computer, but not saved online). Many programs automatically save files to your documents. There's no way to move these files without corrupting them, and many of them are quite large, so they end up eating up all of your storage space. I don't want or need to back up these files, so all I'd like is a way to simply uncheck files which I don't want to be backed up to OneDrive, like how…

  16. Support extremely long folder/file names

    I regularly have sync issues when my folder/file tree name is extremely long. Onedrive needs to support very long folder/file name trees. I believe the limit is 400 characters, this needs to be significantly increased.

  17. Bring back the 'On this day' feature in the Photos section

    This is available in the OneDrive apps. I don't see why this has to be removed from the web version...

  18. Handle photos before 1900

    Currently, it appears that photos in the OneDrive web UI aren't rendered in thumbnails or viewable if the date is set before 1900. Obviously no one had a digital camera before 1900, but I have scanned photos with manually edited EXIF data placing them before 1900.

    Also, no-one digital camera in 1910, or 1920, or anywhere until 1990 or so! So seems kind of odd that 1900 is the cut off where things stop working.

    Some photos before 1900 render, but I can't actually view them when I click. It seems like things generally break down if the date is…

  19. Support 360/sphere photos and videos for consumer accounts

    I see you support for business accounts, and you closed the feature voting. I want to reopen voting for people who do not have business accounts. We have 360 content as well

  20. Stop messing up creation dates of pictures uploaded in OneDrive

    Make sure the date created is reflecting the date the picture was taken and not the upload date to OneDrive - consider using date modified to capture this (although upload date would be more correct as the picture wouldn't be changed at upload)
