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.

More than two years have past and yet no Favorites on OneDrive yet! Where are your UI/UX teams Microsoft? Do you even have it?

This would be super useful.
Shocking to see that OneDrive still doesn't have an option like starring a folder in Google Drive, to quickly get to your favorite folders. Makes you wonder if any of these suggestions are taken seriously.
An option to pin / star folders and files would be hugely helpful. Most other cloud services offer this and it is very useful for productivity.
Though the Files app on iOS could use a lot of work, one thing I really like is that I can save a files and folders under a favorites section. That would be great if OneDrive offered something like that. That way I can quickly get to the folders and files I use the most. The Files app does not handle document previews, outside of PDFs, very well and I like how OneDrive does this. Plus I love that I can just click on the Word, Excel, or PowerPoint icon and it will open it in that app, instead of making a copy.
I love your app. It would be sooo nice if I could pin a folder to the opening page or have a favorites section for the folders I go to on a regular basis. Some of my files are buried 5 or so folders deep so I spend lots of time trying to find my document.
Just moved from windows 10 mobile to android and NEED this feature. Pin folders in app AND to home screen.
apple and google both have it and this is a serious omission
I’m thoroughly enjoying the new OneDrive app now that it is optimized for iOS 11 and iPad Pro. I would like to see the One Drive have a side bar with drag/drop ability to add “Favorites” folder and labels, similar to the Files app from Apple.

This would be fantastic to get quick access to the set of files I am using often.
I've just thought of a workaround for this. It works for me at least. You can create a share link from any folder. No need to share it with anyone in particular, just create the link and the folder will appear in your shared docs section.
Please add the ability’s to favorite the items you like the most. Especially for photos. Also have it create a folder called favorites so they are easy to find. Make this option available on all platforms as well. Thank you.
Favorites would improve usability enormously for me. They should include both folders and files. A new entry in the navigation on the left side should be added, see GDrive.
If one has a gazillion files and folders - nice to be able to star files and folders for easy access in the future using onedrive online, or the apps. We have this feature on box.com and it makes life so much easier
Most of other cloud services can provide a feature:
I can put a star or favourite on some folders and files
Which help managing data a lot

Please provide a feature like this. It's absolutely crucial when navigating a handful of shared files within an organization. The current filter and organization options take far too much time to access files regularly strictly via OneDrive (versus creating a browser bookmark).
Just like windows explorer has "Quick Access" , male it where I can have quick access to commonly used folders. I hate having to navigate to the folders I use most all the time.

Would be nice to have a favorites link on the left side bar to show all marked as Favorite items like photos videos docs etc. and even folders, for quick access instead of going through the whole drive
@Angus: any update from MS side on this point?
Possibility to mark folders as favourite and to see them on the side menu would be fine.
If not this, also helpful would be to have - like "Recent" for files - a menu point "Recent folders".
Right now it's a lot of navigation within the folder structure....
Also would be really helpful to see the "favourite folders" when moving documents within OneDrive (for business). E.g. moving E-Mail attachments from the standard storing folder with one click to a specific project folder,...
