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.
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,...
This is one the nicest features of google drive and would be a huge add to OneDrive (making it more useful)
Would be great if we can highlight certain folders/files to remain at the top of the list in “Files” tab. This way I wont have to scroll down every time I want to access my favorite folders/files.
Some times, i am reading a book PDF or Images, i need to add it to quick access files to be able to access it from quickly (2 click)
Like: 3D click on icon -> quick access files -> (see the list of quick access) open the file
I use muy mobile for printing most of the time. If I could chose folders as favorites, it would be helpful
It would be nice if this included "Shared with me" files and folders as well.

I feel the same!...
...in the meantime, I saved the one file I wanted to have a 'favorite' as a bookmark on my browser.
(copied the URL & created the bookmark)
