OneDrive

How can we improve the OneDrive web experiences?

Implement a folder tree like Google Drive. It would make navigating and moving files around much easier.

I'm surprised this isn't already a feature. Clicking through folder labels to get to where I want to go is irritating. It'd be much better to expand a folder tree and go right where I need to. We need a navigation pane for a more friendly UI experience.

        I agree, I am trying to move from Google to Microsoft, and this is the most annoying missing figure in skydrive.

        A tree view should obviously be integrated into mobile apps as well as the UWP version of Windows Explorer, whenever it comes out... UWP Explorer should be able to integrate with all kinds of cloud storage providers and other apps, of course.

        Is there any update on this one?? You are thinking about it for 2years already :)

        This would be a killer feature for our OneDrive for Business users. It should thus work for both personal and business accounts as well as Sharepoint document libraries. In fact, everything on the left side of the web view, should be arranged into a tree view, including “Shared with me”.

        I do not understand that until now this option is 100% basic, not implemented in OneDrive.

        Is there another channel to send the request?

        Almost 3000 votes, how many do you need before implementing this?

        Hi Douglas, I am back! Did you miss me?
        How many votes Douglas?
        Do you still work for MS?
        Common sense would tell you to at least drop a quick comment to all of us who are waiting for this feature to be implemented but ....

        Douglas, you need votes to make your cloud file program work better? How about sorry we should have done that from the beginning, after all we are the operating system manufacturer and understand what a File Explorer is and why it is important. Have no idea why we didn't do it right from the beginning and we are getting right on it...

        Don't worry about it, its ok I'm sure your product is JUST fine the way it is.

        Very sad this isn't an option for OneDrive in the web. I noticed there is already a SharePoint online feature for site collections called 'Enable Tree View' under Site Settings | Navigation Elements which adds a tree like navigation to the left side of the site collection. Since OneDrive for Business is just site collections, I'm surprised they haven't been able to get something like this setup as an option. Clicking through folders feels like many steps backwards in UX

        At least this way we can see the full file name without having to open it. This is completely unproductive. Moving to another product until you fix it.

        How many do you need Douglas?
        Give us a number

        "Folder" is the easiest way to use a file system... at least most people know how to navigate. I think MS should have implemented this on day 1!

      • Dan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        One year and a half later and 2391 votes and this is still an issue??
        With so many missing features in Outlook and Onedrive I am surprised I still use MS services. (not for long though)
        Douglas, how many votes do you need to make this happen?

      • PerA commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Organizing and navigation without a visible treestructure makes us users angry and disappointed.

      • Michael commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I don't understand how this isn't already implemented either. Can we do it, OneDrive gods? Please? :D
