Favorite folders and files
Can you add a feature to add favourite folders or files for quick access. Not like the recent folder. Like a list of bookmarks that never changes.
We’re working on a feature to flag folders and files to access later. This feature will be for commercial accounts (business) initially.

On my first months free trial of OneDrive. I can't believe it doesn't have a "Quick Access" area like in Windows file explorer. This makes OneDrive so difficult to use I'm wondering whether to bother. Even being able to make our own shortcuts would be useful.

We are just migration from Google drive to One drive, my working position now, i have to check few same files, and it's quite annoying every time i have to search them in the box.
@admin, any updates on the roadmap for this requested feature? I waste soooo much time looking for files that I need to access quickly. I really need the ability to favorite my most important files, especially those I don't have the ability to reorganize because they are owned by other users.
was this feature ever added? not a tough ask IMO ...
How is this not a feature yet? Seriously. MS has been "working on it" for literally a year? (last update as of this comment was July 15, 2019)
How is such a basic feature missing?
Starring a document so it is easy to find in your favorites has been in G Suite for – I can't even remember how long.
When will this be implemented?
I could not find any instructions on how to favorite a document in MS 365/SharePoint.
Soo... Dropbox is seriously outpacing in collaboration. Like, it's 2020 now. Neither OneDrive NOR OneDrive for Business have this. We need to be able to - if not label - at least star files. I'm so annoyed I have to use dropbox whenever I want to collaborate in a file folder.

Working from home and it would be really helpful if I could have favorites or quick access folders like I do on my desktop at work for my frequently used folders.

I was about to switch over to OneDrive from Dropbox. No favorites I’ll just continue to subscribe to Dropbox. I can’t see myself paying for a feature that every other company added years ago, yet Microsoft is still claiming they are working on it.

Let's go Microsoft! It's approaching one year since you said you were working on this.
that would be helpful!
we need it
Been working with OneDrive since the virus lockdown and this is the #1 feature it's missing.
Exactly, this would making the daily routines with OneDrive a lot easier!
Why not add it to personal paid accounts as well? Your competitors do this. Why is this an after-thought????

Could you make a feature to star favorite documents etc. to easily find favorite items.

It is a pain to repeatedly navigate to commonly used folders that are located deep in folder hierarchy. There should be a Quick Access tab with files and folders that have been pinned.
Please add this feature before I loose clients to other platforms because SharePoint does not have the ability to mark/bookmark/favorite items to be viewed by others in the organization!

We can neither create favorites or shortcuts in OneDrive. This makes its resemblance to the Windows file structure that we're used to superficial and plain misleading. I have to either drill down to find document folders I use frequently, or redesign my filling system completely.
