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.
I have most of my personal and work files in onedrive, so I have a complicated folder structure.
Please add the ability within the app to 'pin' or 'favorite' certain folders or files to the onedrive app launch screen for quick access.
Bring back the favorites folder! I loved it on SkyDrive!
Also would be nice to have favorites accessible offline on ios
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 to not sync and it makes no sense.)
*saw 1 other suggestion within another suggestion having to do with pinning. I apologize if I'm double posting.
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.
would be great if one could "favorite" currently often used folders and those would be accesible via a favorites bar, both in app and web. would make things easier for me for sure

Yes, this is very important. We work on certain folder on daily basis and difficult to navigate to them on clicking on the links. So if we can pin a folder to favorites we should be able to navigate to that particular folder. Please provide this option.
This is definitely a must!

Thanks Matthias, I agree fully a clickable windows explorer style hierarchy tree would really sell One Drive to me. Currently I see One Drive's potential, but the lack of this feature holds me back from using it. Also - just looking at Dropbox - this has a prettier front page, is more intuitive and more navigable
In onedrive.live.com, on the left of the screen where it has Files, Recent Docs, Photos, Shared there should be an option to drag onedrive folders onto that panel to link to them
Need a kind of collection, having categories and within that links to actual files and folders.
On web interface allow creating bookmarks or favorites against certain files/folder for quick navigation to it. Sometime I have to navigate 5-10 times to reach a particular folder. This means 5-9 different page request.... and each time. I can't keep everything at the base folder.
Web interface would be much more usable in future while ppl will start putting TBs of data, a large chunk of which will only remain on Onedrive i.e. not synced to local copies. I fear that Many users will shift to Google once they get out something like free space.
I love the ability to pin files to my phone Start screen and would find this valuable in OneDrive as well.
No we need a real section for pinned/Favorite files and folders. Especially now that we enjoy so much storage

I like the idea to pin favorites.

I know I have applied this suggestion strictly to OneDrive.com, but realistically this feature should span all platforms. I normally bury my files in a cascade of complex folder structures, and getting to something may be reliable, but cumbersome. Any way to implement a custom 'Favorites' section? This section should be able to point to an entire folder, or a document. Potentially, if you want a leg up on the competition, I would go a step further and set up 'Collections' so that you can add a group of things together for your own easy reference or for sharing, so that you don't have to keep everything to share at once in one location.
In short, favorites / collections across all platforms, please!
The modern-UI influenced File Explorer looks very simplistic and is good if you are on a touchscreen. It would be awesome if the online File Explorer would include similarities to the Windows Explorer with a structured folder layout on the left where you can pin favourites and fastly switch back two folders/create new folders.
