  3. Linux desktop client for OneDrive

    Since Microsoft officially has become a Linux Community Supporter, it is a shame not to have a Linux desktop client for OneDrive.

  4. Option to disable Skype in OneDrive.

    In OneDrive I work with documents. It is annoying to see notifications from Skype there, especially when I need to refresh a page every time to remove that orange dot.

  6. Fully support subtitles, captions, transcripts, lyrics, etc. for both playback and editing.

    Subtitles, captions, transcripts, synchronized lyrics, and the like are very important parts of both video and audio.

    If I have a folder in OneDrive with video or audio in it and an identically named (but with a different extension) subtitle file, I definitely want the subtitles to be presented when I (or anyone else) stream that video from OneDrive.

    This is also important for videos and audio which have subtitles, captions, or lyrics embedded within them - either encoded as part of the media stream or muxed into the same file container. (WMV and WMA both have this possibility, among…

  8. 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. Bring back Check Out/Check In function in new OneDrive interface

    The "classic" OneDrive for Business UI allowed users to Check Out/Check In documents; please bring it back! This is a hugely important feature for some of my clients; they use it to add comments to document versions and to minimize the editing chaos that can happen on shared documents. This option is still there when they switch back to classic mode, so the functionality is obviously still there on the back end, but the new UI gives no way to get to it. Please fix this before forcing everyone onto the new UI for good!

  10. Compress files and folders in the cloud.

    Right now, if you have a file or a folder stored on OneDrive that you want compressed/stored as a single file, you have to download or sync locally, compress, and them erase the old data and upload the new one. This is time consuming.

    Adding compressing to OneDrive.com would make it much more seamless.

  11. Pin folders for quick access

    Every week i need to work on files which are buried inside bunch of folders. It would be nice if i could pin/favorite those files/folders in the homepage of onedrive so that it saves me time getting to those files/folders.

  12. Add the ability to sort search results.

    I would like to be able to sort search results. We already have the ability to sort files within folders. Now it would be nice to be able to sort the files after performing a search. Thank you.

  13. Fetch an entire folder from a connected PC

    Individual files can already be download, or "fetched", from a PC with the OneDrive app through the webapp. Unfortunately, sometimes I need an entire folder, with many files or even other folders within it, and as of now I have to download each file one-by-one. I would like the ability to download an entire folder, much the same way you can to regular synced folders, if it's possible.

  14. Add ability to favorite/star images, files and folders in onedrive

    I would love a way to mark a picture as a favorite in some way. An example for use: I am swiping through a folder of pics to choose which images to keep or delete. I would like to have a quick, 1 tap/click icon that would mark that image. Then when I'm when viewing an entire folder you would see a star or something as well as being able to sort by "favorites".

    One important thing this feature would do is sync across all devices, not just show starred on the device you created it. (Dropbox changed their system…

  15. Password of shared files in OneDrive for Business

    Similar to OneDrive-Personal it would be great if the "Set a password" feature on shared files (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/share-onedrive-files-and-folders-9fcc2f7d-de0c-4cec-93b0-a82024800c07#OS_Type=OneDrive_-_Personal) could be included in OneDrive for Business please.

  16. Allow files to be transferred between Microsoft accounts

    Sometimes a person switches Microsoft accounts or wants to merge two existing Microsoft accounts. This means they need to move their files too. Providing a way to transfer ownership of files and folders from one Microsoft account to another would make the process much easier (meaning they don't have to download then reupload the files but can instead just use the Web site).

  17. Schedule sync frequency for designated files.

    large files with numerous small changes are very slow in the application due to the frequency of the sync. Attempted to place accounting data files on one drive, but it will sync the entire file after every entry. This made it unusable in the cloud. If sync only occurred upon closing the application, it would allow for data sharing among devices. Incremental sync might also solve this issue. Thanks
