OneDrive : Zip and Unzip File
I would like to suggest you the basic idea regarding onedrive feature. Please add basic functionality like one can zip and/or unzip files directly on OneDrive so each time we don't have to download and upload files on OneDrive. Also, add the functionality to open zip file without extracting the folder on OneDrive.

It's a critical feature to have when we are paying for what Microsoft calls a premium service.

I second this idea. It is very time consuming and slow to download a zip and then upload it.

Exactly what im looking for. I suspect its not been done as they prefer people to pay for extra storage.

This would be an amazing feature for people migrating their data from Google Drive to OneDrive. Actualy Google Takeout transfert files in .zip format. I am waiting this feature to migrate my stuff over.

Yeah, huh! -true. Like, I've got it already.
Please add this functionality.. Was exactly looking for this feature!
This would be an amazing feature!!! I use office online WAY more than I ever thought I would. This would enable to do even more cloud based work.

Also, MEGA.nz gives you zipped files by default and so does Google Drive I believe.

It would be nice if .7z archiving was added to OneDrive and Windows Explorer (and to Windows Core OS/CShell going forward) since it compresses files smaller than .zip does, esp at the ULTRA compression level. Referencing the 7-zip.org File Manager.
I would appreciate this feature as well.
Yes, this is so inconvenient to have to download files instead of zipping them directly,
I agree with this proposal. There are hundreds of online services that already offer this functionality, like https://extract.me
I can't believe that Microsoft can't implement it.
I agree 200% would be great feature!!!
Zipping online is also useful when the folder contains like 10000 files (e.g. source code).
After we stop active use it would be great to zip them online and keep as single file. Sharing/downloading is easier then.
If we wanted to use them actively again the online unzip would do the job.
At the moment, when OneDrive account holds millions of files, it is very slow updating its status even when little has changed downloading/syncing 10000files is also much slower than syncing a single file.

I second this idea. I keep my stock RAW DSLR photographs as online-only, and instead of waiting for 20GB to zip and upload, why not simply zip them directly on the website?
