  2. 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

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. Let me specify which file extensions to be handled by the text editor

    I’d like to add or remove file extensions that should be handled by the text editor.

    For example, I have many source code files that are currently not opened in the text editor. (I don’t need syntax highlighting.)

    Please DO NOT MERGE this idea with another. I’m NOT asking for the ability to change file extension while renaming files.

  16. can you insert a password protection in the access to OneDrive by other application?

    I noticed that with the latest update of OneDrive application, you can put a security pin to prevent unauthorized access to onedrive app, but if I enter in the office app I can however view all office documents in onedrive without required no password entry and the same thing happens to the photos on onedrivethat are opened using the app photo, going in the album you can access without a password for all photos contained in onedrive ... anyone able to circumvent a protection system as well ... hope you do an update to password protect access to onedrive also…

  19. independent folder views

    I would like to have independent views for folders on Onedrive.com. An example would be - i'd like to keep my main list of folders in the "detailed view", and once i click on my "Pictures" folder, switch to the "thumbnail view." however, if i click on "Documents," it should be "detailed view." right now the minute i change the view (detailed or thumbnail," ALL folders get switched to that view.
