    Hear, Hear. . . Just one more perplexed, astonished, and frustrated user adding his small, tiny, insignificant voice (as far as Microsoft is concerned) to the growing discontent amongst the maddening crowd. . .

    Doug, why are you working with Outlook? It isn't the Outlook teams problem. This is the MOBILE APP TEAM. Get your H1B friends together and get this **** fixed! Disgraceful how long it is taking you guys.

    This is a mobile app issue, and the internal (dis)organization of Microsoft can't communicate to fix the issue. Can someone please escalate this internally? I am tempted to start bugging Satya about the dysfunction of his people...

    This is still taking for ever... I don't think its just the outlook team, I think the internal teams at microsoft cannot communicate effectively to eliminate this issue... this is a mobile app issue. I don't even have outlook installed and it does this constantly

    MS, can you once speed up your development? Let me answer this for you, of course you can't...

    It is ridiculous that a minor thing like that takes one year to fix... I have enough and will leave for Dropbox. Goodbye and thank you MS for not listening to your users :-)

    Hiding the folder, it just shows back up again... stupid microsoft... can't they get their act together on this simple thing?

  • Rafal Ziolkowski commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I ended up with hiding all **** folders on PC and pretending "not seeing them" via web interface - works so far.

    I hate these folders with a burning passion. Is there a single UX expert anywhere on the team? Stop. Adding. Folders. I. Dont. Want. Or. Need.

    Ideally need to be able to block ALL unauthorised folders appearing.. 'Attachments' is the biggest culprit for me.. please fix this :)

    8 Documents folders have appeared, unwanted, in 3 days, no matter how hard I try to not have them appear. I have selected the folder I want in my one drive. It's either the Documents folder or the Attachment folder. Please stop this.

    Yeah right - using a word 'working' is an insult to everyone that actually does work.
    One year and this nonsense still goes on.

    So a question to you YOU Douglas Pearce:

    What have you worked on for the past year that actually did something useful for people that pay your salary? And it's use the users, in case you have not noticed that.

    18 months since numerous complaints about the 'Attachments' folder, and what happens... another folder called 'Documents'! The overwhelming majority want these forced folders gone. Get rid of them please!!

  • Infinicat commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Great... In OneDrive for Business I’m now getting an extra “Documents” folder next to “Attachments”. Nice job, sh’theads!

  • STeve B commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I can't believe this is taking so long! Stupid m$ can't get their **** together...

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate
