How can we improve the OneDrive web experiences?

Make API for Shared folders a lot better

You are able to Access the shared folders by you and others with "" and access each of the elements by /drive/items/{id}

What I miss:
- Possibility to upload to folders shared by others that I have write access to.
- Possiblity to list the permissions for each item ( uses /API/2/GetPermissions)
- Possibility to Add/delete permissions as well

We haven’t documented the /shared API because we’re still working on making it work better. We’re working on expanding support for more sharing concepts including those you have listed.

    There is way to access shared items but there is no way to list them, you have to know the resource ID.

    I've tried in the API and it's working fine. What I miss, is a way to make that link "personal" by adding it to my shared view (not adding to drive). This is possible with GUI but not through the API.

    Any updates here?

    I confirm /drive/shared still displays only the items I have shared not the other way around. And that makes this endpoint useless in our use case.

    Hi... thanks for working on this. Can you guys provide an update on when it may be available?

    As mentioned by Nicolai /drive/shared only displays items I have shared not the other way around, when /me/skydrive/shared will be available in the new Api?

    Is there any timeline for this implementation? Before WP10 hits the market? Really needed as the Family Group is missing from People Hub.

    Information on the items shared with me is not really available (as Nicolai has mentioned). It would be great if you can include that. Hoping that the "view.changes" will be applicable to shared items too.

    Great. I noticed that /Shared didn't display anything that is shared with me, only stuff that I have shared.
