  1. Borrow some features from Google Docs - Copy Paste images directly

    Hello,

    At work I am forced to use Google Docs, but at for my personal work, I use Office 365 in the cloud

    Though I love Office 365, there are some features in Google Docs that I wish were in Office 365.

    1) The ability to copy and paste images directly into documents and email. This feature works seamlessly in Google Docs and Mail

    2) The ability to add drawings to documents. This is a nice feature in Google Docs

    Thanks for reading.

  2. Two big security flaws - version history and recycle bin - forced to use Google Drive

    Recently I have experienced virus encoder attack.
    Scenario: Virus encodes my mdb and accdb files in OneDrive folder on PC, files are uploaded to OneDrive.com, my files on OneDrive.com are also encoded. The result is I have lost all my data.
    If version history was available for all file formats on OneDrive.com, healthy versions would still be on the OneDrive.com.
    Scenario: Files in my OneDrive folder on my PC are accidentally deleted by me or deleted by virus (meaning they are not placed in the recycle bin on the PC). As I understand the size limit of recycle bin on…

  3. Allow an external drive be disconnected and reconnected.

    I have linked Onedrive to an external drive which I don't always have connected when I boot up my computer. Subsequently when I do connect the external drive I need to do a first time install. It would help if that reconnection could be made without using first time install.

  5. Allow local transfer of OneDrive content from old PC to new PC

    For users with lots of data on OneDrive, it's a bit cumbersome when moving to a new PC (or re-installing the OS). At the moment, we have to let OneDrive re-sync all the files/folders if we want local copies of all our content.

    It'd be great to have the ability to locally copy all of our OneDrive content from old PC to new PC, and then let OneDrive sync content. As most/all of the content is the same (between the old and new install), only a small amount would initially be synced via broadband. I'd prefer to transfer 300GB of…

  6. Option to not automatically log in to Skype

    Give the user the option to log out or not automatically log in to skype every time you hit onedrive.com

    Its a cloud drive, not a social network

  8. More control of sharing privacy information such as Geo tags

    Some privacy of photos is already in place as you can't see online the photo location, but simply downloading the image allows whoever downloaded it to see the information (google photos does strip this information). So there's some inconsistency there.

    However, I do want some people I share with the ability to see the location. I don't want to always have no geo information because apps like storyteller can use this to enhance how we organize, view pictures.

    Thanks

  12. Add the ability to create a shared calendar and invite people to that, where it will show on their phones

    When we switch to the Calendar, I would like the ability to create a shared calendar so that I can invite a person to an event, and it'll show on their calendar on their phone also.

  13. Add the ability to people tag

    I would like the ability to tag faces on pictures that have been uploaded to OneDrive. Currently Windows Live Photo Gallery has this ability and is generally really good at guessing faces. Also, Facebook has facial recognition that is about 97% accurate.

    My request is:
    -add ability to group pictures by people, adding this as an option along the top row, where we currently only see "Photos Albums Tags" right now. Any untagged picture will show in 'untagged'
    -add facial recognition to suggest tags for pictures
    -make this facial recognition at least as good as that in Windows Live Photo…

    Wanted to provide an update here: this is something we’re planning on doing, but don’t have a timeframe to share yet

  14. Add the ability to geotag by latitude/longitude, address, or clicking on a map

    In the photo album, I have a number of pictures which I took, where I know the location, but I have no means to geotag them in OneDrive. I would like to ask for the following:

    -ability to sort by location; this groups by country, then city, and also leaves an 'untagged' group that you can tag yourself.
    -ability to tag a picture using latitude/longitude, an actual street address, or by clicking on a map; I know exactly where I was standing where I took a specific picture of the Eiffel Tower, for example, so I should be able to…

  15. Add full metadata editing

    In Windows Media Player in Windows XP, we could edit metadata through the advanced tag editor. We had the full ID3 specification available - language, mood, country, front cover, back cover, lyrics, and so on. I would like a right-click option on OneDrive for any mp3 file that lets us edit metadata right on OneDrive. The full ID3 specification, every single field, should be available for us.

  16. In Music folder, add sort option for Artist-Album

    I would like an option to sort the music folder by Artist, then Album. Currently the folder can only be sorted by name, date, and size, and that's very frustrating for those of us who organize our music into folders by artist, then by album. It's a very logical and consistent means of organizing music.

    Please add a sort function for Artist+Album that will group by artist, and then we click on the artist, and it opens up into a list of albums, which use album art as their icons. When we click on the album, we then get the…

  17. Emails do not fit in the preview window

    Therefore, we have to open them since they do not adapt to the window.
    2 solutions possible:
    - Adapt the mail to the preview window
    - Add an horizontal scroll function for the previsualization of emails on the right side

  19. Display the number of files and folders in a folder and its subfolders

    I would appreciate to have the ability to see in the properties how many files and folders does a selection of files and folders contain (files and folders selected, plus all the files and folders in all the subfolders of the selection) on the website, like it is possible on Windows: today, you can only know how many elements you have ticked, or how many files and folders does only one folder contain (without including the files and folders in the subfolders).

    Thank you for sharing this. We don’t have specifics to share, but wanted to provide an update that we are looking into this for future updates.

  20. bad file check

    Hi:
    I post one question a while ago (http://goo.gl/QFCpdO).
    I didnt figure it out, and dont plan to spend more time on it.

    But then, I found one of your competitor having this tool called bad file check (https://www.dropbox.com/badfilescheck). I think that is a good idea, and if MS also develop one, users can then use this tool to do the self check.

    Cheers
