  1. When on the OneDrive website, provide the option to show multiple file trees if you have multiple computers

    When on OneDrive on the web, give the option to show multiple file trees if you have multiple computers. This will allow users to clearly see where files are housed, and keep partitions in place. This is particularly helpful if you have multiple users who predominantly use one computer vs. the other.

    If you're the household's "network administrator" by default and find yourself to be far from being considered an expert, replicating the partitions or organization system you utilize for your home computers will make it much easier to seek out files on the OneDrive website.

  2. Various bulk share, view, removal and, timeout of folder options.

    As mentioned in other posts, the ability for more accurate, and faster control over sharing, in addition to timeouts.


    1. View the person's initials, or first, or last name in the folder view, quickly see who you have shared multiple folders with.

    2.. The ability to sort by first, or last name and list all instances where that person has share rights.


    1. Bulk unshare, or share with one, or more individuals.


    2. Add a timeout option, e.g., day, week, etc.. at the folder level - would be good for sensitive content, or commercial photo content no longer in active use, so you…

  3. Should be able to accept or decline if someone shares a file with me that I do not recognize.

    Recently I am receiving shared file links from an unknown email address, I have reported it and still receiving it. I want OneDrive to let the users decide if the file shared with us needs to be accepted or not. A feature to let us decide if we want to accept or decline would be great.

  6. Hyperlinks in OneNote Online

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    OneNote Online のハイパーリンクについて
    Hyperlinks in OneNote Online


    ■Description(内容):
    OneNote Online を Internet Explorer で使用した場合、ハイパーリンクを開く際別ウインドウが起動するがウインドウのサイズを変更することができない。
    Microsoft Edge などの別ブラウザーのように、別タブで開き、ウインドウのサイズを変更できるよう、機能の追加、または変更を要望します。

    If using OneNote Online in Internet Explorer, when links open in a separate window, you can’t change the size of those windows.
    Please make it so that you can open these links in a separate tab or resize the window in the same way as you can for other browsers.

  9. Manually Tag Multiple Selected Photos at Once

    I would like to be able to select multiple photos at once and add the same tag. This used to be available many years ago with the legacy Picasa product.

  10. Only allow upload of certain file extension types

    One drive allows admin to be set to not upload certain extension types, but this list needs to be kept up to date to reduce the risk of a ransomware attack. If there was an option to white list file extensions so only trusted file types were uploaded, then likelihood of encryption due to ransmoware infecting the cloud copy is reduced

  12. Synchronization tail

    Rebuilding a file of many gigabytes takes time. The synchronisation tail allows the level of priority of each file at granular level.

  14. A visual indicator on Desk Top showing the status of Synchronisation of Uploaded Files.

    A visual indicator on Desk Top would show status of up loaded files to the One Drive. I have noticed when I switch my lap top off. The next time I switch on, the file previously worked on was not saved to the Sub Folder that I was working in but the Documents folder. There is no obvious indicator unless you open the One Drive Icon in tool bar that the uploading process is still running. I assume that when I switch computer off the upload process is interrupted and the file worked on is dumped to Documents Folder. This…

  16. Improve OneDrive search results /potential results as you type

    It would be nice if OneDrive search could get potential results to start populating right below the search box as you type. That’s great if you’re searching for something with a specific word in the title or early on in the content of the document.

  18. Use my file view settings as file view setting in OneDrive online

    Given all the access MS has to my info, files, and PC preferences, could you please mirror my file view settings when I visit OneDrive on the web? Or could you enable the option to mirror? I generally use my folders in Details view but every time I visit OneDrive on the web, all of my folders show in grid or tile view which I dislike. Please advise. Thank you.

  20. Fix File On Demand for Mac/SharePoint

    Although the "File On Demand" option appears to exist, files are still showing that they take up storage space locally on my Mac (running OS Catalina, 10.15.5).
