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.
Wanted to provide an update here: this is something we’re planning on doing, but don’t have a timeframe to share yet
This would save a lot of time as I have a number of sub folders.

This would be so helpful and you already give this function when viewing OneDrive through Windows Explorer. Please add this!!!
Yes please do this. End users get lost so easily with this default navigation.

Navigating through a hierarchical file structure requires a tree. Hard to imagine why anyone would think otherwise.
Agree. File Management needs to be made easier, along with favourite folders/starred folders and colour coding of folders.
I think, that this idea should merger with one called "Allow shared folders to be stored within sub folders". Thus, I flagged it as inappropriate.
In other case votes would be distributed to different "baskets".
Why wasn't this available from the beginning. Microsoft do you even use your own products?

I agree completely with this suggestion. It's the most important improvement. (That's one of the few details, where GoogleDrive is better.)
I have to totally agree with this suggestion. I would change the leftmost menu (now reserved for ONEDRIVE>Files-Recent-Photos...) to display folder structure. Shortcuts for recent files, documents, photos and shared files could be placed elsewhere.
The online navigation is just useless. Period.

I concur with Christopher yue... Agree! just like i dumped onenote for gdocs... Evernotes still king but toooooo many features... we need a evernote light version jijijiji!!!

Right now the flat card navigation can be quite difficult if you have lots of files and folders.
Add a Directory Picker to quickly navigate through the folder tree like in explorer with an "Up to" button to go up the directory. When moving around files and photos while on the road for work, the ability to quickly navigate through folder structures and directories is crucial. You provide this functionality in the "Files" app as seen in my screenshot attached. It would be so productive and appreciated to have this in the Onedrive app as well.
