  1. Activity notifications in the web interface often cover the folders/files I'm working on.

    Rather than a drop-down box as an activity notifications, maybe just post notifications in the toolbar at the top of the page.

  3. Lift 1000 files upload limit.

    Many a time I get better speed of uploading or at least immediate upload starting. The 1000 file limit really hurts there. Also suppose I am on a computer without admin access and want to upload my project folder having many short sized files.... I get stuck. When you have a big house, make the roads wide too!!

    We looked at increasing the file upload limit via the browser to OneDrive.com. The reason we chose 1000 was because we wanted a number that worked well in most browsers.

    I’d recommend if you are uploading thousands of files, it is easier to do it via the desktop sync client.

    Will leave this open but likely won’t get to it for a while as it is dependent on browser tech.

  4. Copy shared files

    I've got my family photo collection uploaded to onedrive and the folder shared with my wife, who has Can Edit permission. However she cannot copy files to another folder. She often creates picture projects to have prints ordered and will create a new folder as a temporary location, now, she can't do that and I'm in the doghouse.

  7. Annotate shared PDFs on the web

    I recently got invited to annotate a PDF shared with me (editing enabled) via OneDrive. Unfortunately this isn´t possible yet; I had to download a 20 Mb file, annotate it in Adobe Reader, reupload it to my own OneDrive, send a link...

    Please implement collaboration features on annotating PDFs like it is possible in Word Online!

  9. Browser Bookmark Sync

    Make it possible to sync favories/bookmarks from any browser e.g. Firefox or Chrome so that I can sync my favorites from another browser than IE to my Windows Phone.
    Also give us the possibility to manage/browse the favorites on the OneDrive Page.

  10. Copy multiple files/folders through web interface/iOS app

    I'm very surprised nobody is mentioning this - please add support for copying multiple files and folders between OneDrive (Personal) locations, through onedrive.com and your mobile apps (eg iOS).

    At the moment, for copying a hundred photos you need to select one photo, click on 'Copy', specify the destination folder, click on Select.. and then do this whole process again another 99 times.

  11. Add "move" or "save as" option to shared folders

    Add "move" or "save as" option to shared folders.
    It would be usefull.not to have to download the file and upload it to the shared folders.

    tell us more  ·  Casey Penk responded

    Hi Kelvin, we currently have this feature in Chrome. Are you requesting this feature in Firefox and/or Internet Explorer?

  13. Allow PDFs to be highlighted and saved

    I would like to be able to do all of my research on one platform. I can save PDFs but I can't highlight on OneDrive. Now I have to keep download the file to my computer to edit and then resave it to OneDrive. And then delete the old version. It would be great if I could make these small changes and then save it all on OneDrive.

  14. I suggest you remove the first page of Login on onedrive.com,

    It doesn't really make sense to ask users to type their Microsoft address then direct them to a normal login page not different than the other online services. Even though the first page is really nice looking, it's a unnecessary step... If you want to keep it add the option to type also the password there and go directly to OneDrive after that

  15. utilise the Geotagging to sort photos into folders.

    Just like in the Lumia storyteller app that sorts your photos into folders based on where it was shot. it would be really helpful to get all your photos under control.
    I can see OneDrive knows where it was shot its just not very intelligent when it comes to managing all the photos you take.
    Microsoft could you come up with some way to achieve this?
    (and of course allow that Geotagged folder to be renamed if need be)

  16. Use a Cryptografic way of store Files

    Use a Cryptografic way of store Files so without your key it should not mount "onedrive drive"
    it would help in case of a lost memory card/notebook

  18. Open office documents with a size of max 100MB

    Allow office online to open files upto the size of 100MB (maybe in wifi connection or 3G)

    Excel, Powerpoint can easily grow beyond 50MB with charts and images

  19. Allow comments on shared folder/files and send notification once the comment is added

    Allow comments on shared folder/files and send notification once the comment is added. This feature was available before. It's very important for team project and collaboration.

  20. Add native editors for code files

    Currently onedrive has native support for code files such as CSS, JavaScript and c#. Give it the enormously powerful ability to edit many other file types such as .java and .ml etc. make it as powerful at opening different file types as text editor on windows or notepad++. Build this functionality into the mobile apps. It would be killer if I could open, view java or c++ code directly through my onedrive app on my mobile device.
