  2. MacOS: Thumbnail preview for all media files when "Files on demand" is enabled.

    Works on Windows Explorer and OneDrive - why not do this on the OneDrive.app for the Mac? Dropbox has created a "hack" for this by creating their own small Thumbnail preview icons for all media files when "Smart Syncronization" is enabled. OneDrive for Business needs this feature to be competitive. When listing a folder of .JPG .PSD .IND etc. you shouldn't have to download 1GB of files before you can see a thumbnail version of your document.

    Create these on the Sharepoint backend and let OneDrive use these small icons as thumbs for quickly identifying files.

  3. [Request] - Let us use a OneDrive folder as a fonts location for Words online

    Let us specify a folder in our OneDrive space and point Office online to it so that we can put our custom font files in that folder and use them in Office online products such as Word.

    this is much better alternative compared to using embedded fonts in Word docx files.

  4. Keep Personal Vault window open until syncing is complete

    Moving a large number of files using File Explorer to the Personal Vault will cause File Explorer to crash and will cause sync problems should the Personal Vault window close before syncing is done.
    Since syncing time is unpredictable I would like to see an option for Personal Vault to remain open until if finishes syncing, however long that takes (since I can't predict it myself or giving an outlandish amount of time to keep the window open)

  5. Stop giving information to prostitution

    I set up the one drive for my doctors to contact me? Instead I get someone saying my name and wanting ***? I never signed up for that ****!

  6. Implement an add-on via Browser that lets you open other applications to sign off documents and then over-save that document back in OneDriv

    The add-on would be a drop down list that when opening a document/PDF sitting in OneDrive through the browser, gives you the option to "open with" other programs so one can add a signature, or date the document etc. and then save over the same document without exiting the Browser.

    At the moment, one has to save the document back to OneDrive and in Desktop and then re-upload it into Xaas service. This is not very handy, especially say using smartsheet, you attach a document, from OneDrive, then to add a signature there is no direct feature through the browser…

  7. show number of files in a directory under directory details (directory info)

    in windows, directory properties shows the number of files in that directory... OneDrive should do the same. see attached.

  8. File Selection in Search

    File selection in search in OneDrive is not working correctly. Unlike in normal view if one attempts to select multiple files via CTRL+Left Click it opens the file instead. The workaround is to directly click on the V symbol in the top left corner but this is very uncomfortable.

  10. Column Text Layout in Word Online

    It the Desktop App, it allows text and other inputs (photos, tables, etc) to be formatted into columns, like in a newspaper. This cannot be done in Word Online, nor do the files transferred into OneDrive already having columns keep them. Please have this feature added into the "Lay Out" tab on Word Online.

  12. OneDrive on the Web - View Options Saving

    Please provide an option to save default view options. By default the view is to Tiles. I can change it to list or compact list but the next time I login, it doesn't save the previously set view. Thank you.

  13. Start in current folder when moving files

    About 75% of my file moves are from one folder to the subfolder(s) below it. Right now I have to click all the way through the file tree from the beginning to get to the proper directory. If the dialogue box started in the current folder that would take many fewer clicks.

  14. Add Quick access menu to the one drive web application.

    I am missing the Quick Access menu on my one drive web. It is always a pain to open each directory to reach the one really down the line.

    Add Quick access menu similar like the explorer

  16. Open PDF files in the browser, not in Word.

    Since both Edge and the new Edge based on Chromium offer the option to ink on PDF files, it makes more sense to open a PDF file in the browser, especially when using OneDrive on the web, rather than Word Online.
    Most people use PDF as a format that is not to be edited, so opening it for inked comments makes more sense. Word online cannot edit large format PDFs, PDF Forms, and it does not always preserve the original formatting so it is not the best option anyway.

    Using the Now function in Excel Online returns the time for the server (US time), so there is a time difference between that and the local time on the Excel client. I would like to be able to have the function return the time for a specified country’s time zone.
