  1. Additional Video Playback Support

    It would be nice if OneDrive supported more video containers/codecs. More specifically MKV container. It's not widely used by companies but I'm sure there is a myriad of OneDrive users who do have content in those formats. It's a feature that Google Drive Supports

  2. Grant services/apps access only to specific folders

    Every time services/apps ask me to grant OneDrive access, I do not want to do that because some privacy data is stored and I do not want to share it with other services/apps. If I can grant the access to services/apps on specified folders but not all folders, it will be very security.

  3. Mix of selective sync and smart files

    Smart Files are awesome and needs to come back... But I also believe selective sync needs to also stay.

    User Case:
    I have all my pictures on onedrive. all 1.5TB of it... I want all my pictures visible in file explorer, but not downloaded... smart files work here.

    I want to archive old data... forever. but I don't want it synced, or require it to show in file explorer.... selective sync works here. It would be awesome if there was a "drop" location in file explorer where I could drop files to move it to my "vault / archive" on…

  5. Fix the Interface

    The blue boxes for folders look ugly, and there is a ridiculous amount of white space above the folder names in the list view. Additionally, the Size and Sharing columns completely disappear when using the webpage on just one half of the screen, which is a problem that also extends to the whole interface. The website fails to adjust to certain screen sizes and aspect ratios, instead creating scroll bars within the page (the left menu bar eventually creates its own scroll bar) and removing information.

  6. Image editor

    Just some basic features to start off. Crop. lighten and darken. Red Eye reduction in the future. Maybe zoom in and out with the scroll wheel of the mouse too?

  9. Fix size metadata bug

    When uploading certain PNG files the size is incorrectly reported on the OneDrive website and in the Photo object returned by the REST API. This can be reproduced using the following PNG file: http://www2.zippyshare.com/v/11270772/file.html

  10. Add more ooption in "save as" in Office & support for RTF

    Please, add in Office Online in OneDrive more option in "save as" (e.g. option to covert and/or downloading Word's file as ODT, RTF -- and ODT, RTF as DOCX).

    And, very important, add in Word online suport to RTF file! Today I try to open RTF in Word online, and I can't. :( Support for RTF is a very important.

  11. Ugly black bar at the top

    Recent UI updates to OneDrive.com came with a very ugly, huge alien black bar at the top. It doesn't fit with the rest of the page and muted tones at all. I figured I'd get used to it but it still looks like something out of 1997, just a "wtf?" decision by the UI team. Makes me wish there was an alternative without this amateur lapse in design judgement, and you know, there is. Your entire competition. I just wouldn't want to switch over something as nitpicky as this, I'd like the whole UI to live up to it's level.

  12. Improve Excel surveys

    I had my hopes for the survey in OneDrive but I have to go back to Google.

    No radio buttons, no checkboxes only alternativ.
    No subheadings, no pagination
    No notification if someone has filled in the form.
    These are basic issues for a simple survey.

    Hi there, can you tell us a bit more about what you are suggesting? Thank you.

  14. Thumbnails for .AWR files

    AWR files are Sony Raw photo files.

    Please add support to create thumb nails like you do with Canon/Nikon raw files.

  15. Upload resumption in web interface

    If uploading is terminated unexpectedly at 90%, it makes no sense to have to retransmit the 90% that should have been cached on the sever, especially for large files.

    Unexpected upload terminations can and do occur, for example, when the user accidentally navigates away or closes the tab or window, or due to temporary network problems.

  16. 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.

  17. Let OneDrive fetch files for me

    I’d like to be able to download files directly to OneDrive, for example using an HTTP(S) or FTP URL.

    (You can do this with Google Drive using Google Docs Viewer, although there is a file size cap of 20 MB. If you decide to implement this feature please set the limit higher.)

  20. Do not include my CID in file sharing links

    When you share an item on OneDrive.com, whether to the public or to specific people, you get a link that contains the resource ID of that item. The resource ID consists of a (16-character hexadecimal) CID that identifies the account and a sequence number that identifies the shared item.

    The CID can be quite revealing about the account owner. For example, anyone can see his/her name (and previously also picture) on OneDrive.com. This might discourage people from sharing links with a large number of unfamiliar people (e.g., on social networks).

    (On storage.live.com one can learn even more about the account,…
