  1. Automatically upload Outlook.com attachments to OneDrive

    if I send an email to onedrive@outlook.com or any email ID finalized by Microsoft from my registered onedrive email iD, then attached file in my email automatically gets uploaded to my oneDrive cloud.

    Example: Let's say my email ID is xyz@hotmail.com and I am using OnDrive using the same email ID ( i.e xyz@hotmail.com ). Now I send an email from xyz@outlook.com with an attached file to onedrive@outlook.com then this attached file automatically gets uploaded to my OneDrive storage.

  2. Bookmark

    This one drive app for iPad is great but lack just one feature called 'bookmark'. With just one small additional, I would forsake the other PDFs readers that have the bookmark feature. Really. Yep. I love the one drive app on my iPad. I am sure that others would agreed with me.

  3. Add ability to favorite/star images, files and folders in onedrive

    I would love a way to mark a picture as a favorite in some way. An example for use: I am swiping through a folder of pics to choose which images to keep or delete. I would like to have a quick, 1 tap/click icon that would mark that image. Then when I'm when viewing an entire folder you would see a star or something as well as being able to sort by "favorites".

    One important thing this feature would do is sync across all devices, not just show starred on the device you created it. (Dropbox changed their system…

  4. Thumbnails for .AWR files

    AWR files are Sony Raw photo files.

    Please add support to create thumb nails like you do with Canon/Nikon raw files.

  5. Lift 1000 files upload limit.

    Many a time I get better speed of uploading or at least immediate upload starting. The 1000 file limit really hurts there. Also suppose I am on a computer without admin access and want to upload my project folder having many short sized files.... I get stuck. When you have a big house, make the roads wide too!!

    We looked at increasing the file upload limit via the browser to OneDrive.com. The reason we chose 1000 was because we wanted a number that worked well in most browsers.

    I’d recommend if you are uploading thousands of files, it is easier to do it via the desktop sync client.

    Will leave this open but likely won’t get to it for a while as it is dependent on browser tech.

  6. Support H.265 videos playback

    Now that Windows 10 natively support H.265, I think it is natural to add playback support on onedrive.com as well.

  7. Pool 5TB across accounts in a O365 Home plan rather than allocating 1TB per user

    I paid $100 for O365 home for five users, but host most of our family's photos and content in my OneDrive. It would really make sense if this came out of everyone's allocation.

    Please change O365 Home plans so that there's 5TB shared/pooled storage--per plan--rather than 1TB per user.

  8. More storage options - Up to 10TB plan

    Please provide more storage options above the 1TB, as it's not enough and the lack of options is pushing users away to other services.

    Adding 3 new Office plans, shouldn't be too complicated:
    2TB - $£
    5TB - £$
    10TB - $$£

    At least users will have an option!

    Also if an user buy the 5 licences Office, why not allow him to stack subscriptions on the same Microsoft account?

  9. 'Favorites' section

    I know I have applied this suggestion strictly to OneDrive.com, but realistically this feature should span all platforms. I normally bury my files in a cascade of complex folder structures, and getting to something may be reliable, but cumbersome. Any way to implement a custom 'Favorites' section? This section should be able to point to an entire folder, or a document. Potentially, if you want a leg up on the competition, I would go a step further and set up 'Collections' so that you can add a group of things together for your own easy reference or for sharing, so…

  10. Bring back black background on photos slides

    Background now is white on photos.

    Please change it back to black, or give users the option to select it.

    For photographers this is important. My wife now is all upset about this.

  12. Recover files deleted from bin or deleted after 30 days

    Offer a File Recovery option or as a paid service for files excluded from bin and deleted automatically from bin after 30 days.

    Provided as a premium service or paid per incident, it would be an extraordinary selling point and advantage compared with other cloud services!
    There is a business opportunity being lost in here!

    Thanks,
    Alex T.

  13. Allow direct acces to shared files using "real" links

    If I have a file stored on my OneDrive account I should be able to share it and access it directly as a link:
    http:\\oneDrive.com/userID/document.extention.
    http:\\oneDrive.com/userID/image.png

    Now accessing a file is dome using a link... to a web page.

    tell us more  ·  Casey Penk responded

    Hi Elvis, can you tell us more about this suggestion? Currently you can access OneDrive files using the links, like onedrive.live.com/file_name.

  14. Restrict OneDrive for Business access for specific IP address

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    指定した IP アドレスからのアクセス制限を OneDrive for Business にのみ適用する機能について

    Restrict OneDrive for Business access for specific IP address
    ***************
    現在、OneDrive for Business を指定した IP アドレス以外からのアクセスを制限するよう設定した場合、SharePoint Online もアクセスが制限されてしまう。
    OneDrive for Business のみアクセス制限できるよう改善して欲しい。

    By setting “Allow access only from specific IP address locations” in OneDrive for Business, it cause a restriction for SharePoint sites access as well. We want to allow access to OneDrive for business only in specific Network and at the same time it should not affect SharePoint site access.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  15. OneDrive integration with iOS 11 Files App

    When will OneDrive integrate with iOS 11 Files App. Both Google Drive, Dropbox support integration with Files App and the ability to drag files into other apps, like Apple email app. Apple iCloud also provides the functionality.

  16. Support MKV

    I understand you declined this issue in a previous post, so I'm reopening it here. This is important to your users and saying you are focusing on the "most common" formats is not a reasonable response for most of us. Please reconsider or expand upon your reasoning for not supporting this.

  17. Office 365 missing Mind-Mapping-Tool

    Office 365 and OneDrive is nearly perfect. The only tool I'm missing is a simple mind-mapping-tool. This would complete the great Microsoft product family.

  18. OneDrive LAN-sync

    It would be nice if there was an option to sync files over the LAN since it's much faster. Especially if you have to transfer 10's of gigabytes of files.
    This would be grate when you restore a computer and need to download all the files again. It takes forever if you have to download all the files from the web.

  19. Linux desktop client for OneDrive

    Since Microsoft officially has become a Linux Community Supporter, it is a shame not to have a Linux desktop client for OneDrive.

  20. Ugly black bar at the top

    Recent UI updates to OneDrive.com came with a very ugly, huge alien black bar at the top. It doesn't fit with the rest of the page and muted tones at all. I figured I'd get used to it but it still looks like something out of 1997, just a "wtf?" decision by the UI team. Makes me wish there was an alternative without this amateur lapse in design judgement, and you know, there is. Your entire competition. I just wouldn't want to switch over something as nitpicky as this, I'd like the whole UI to live up to it's level.
