How can we improve the OneDrive web experiences?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Versioning

    We really need versioning. It's a must. I want to switch totally from Dropbox plan. Maybe an official position about this feature if it's in plan or not and how long we will have to wait.

  2. DNG preview

    Please, allow us to view DNG image files within OneDrive. It would be awesome to have support for all kind of RAW files (Sony's .awr in my case) but DNG is an open format and probably easy to support.

    Google drive supports video with .SRT format, why not OneDrive?

  4. Bring back a file's name and upload percentage to the upload menu.

    The new design adopted by OneDrive has made it harder for those users who need to track the uploading rate of their files.

  6. Browser Bookmark Sync

    Make it possible to sync favories/bookmarks from any browser e.g. Firefox or Chrome so that I can sync my favorites from another browser than IE to my Windows Phone.
    Also give us the possibility to manage/browse the favorites on the OneDrive Page.

  7. remove 4gb download limit for folder

    Please remove the 4gb folder download limit. It is a pain especially when you are sharing a lot of trip pictures :)

  9. Bring back functionality of Public sharing

    The functionality of public sharing was silently removed without a believable explanation ... thats sad fact!
    I was terribly disappointed ... by decision and also by sneaky way of hidding whole thing and reasons for that.

    There are many false stories and excuses
    --------------------------------------------------------
    - Mister Douglas Pearce has marked it as something "buggy" for support to solve ... and has disabled futher voting for this matter ... thats what i call "dodge".

    - More than two months passed without any sign of activity. Onedrive as major Microsoft service isnt normaly left without support ... but in this case is…

  10. Add Default Data-Encryption to OneDrive Personal!

    Please encrypt the uploaded data by default on OneDrive Personal, like on OneDrive Professional. There should be an Encryption which could not be accessed by the MS Stuff. I don't think it is much work. And with this Feature OneDrive will be great! Actually only the transfer ist encrypted via SSL but the stored File on it now - and that is very bad

  11. Make API for Shared folders a lot better

    You are able to Access the shared folders by you and others with "https://api.onedrive.com/v1.0/drive/shared" 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 (OneDrive.com uses /API/2/GetPermissions)
    - Possibility to Add/delete permissions as well

    working on it  ·  Ryan Gregg responded

    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.

  12. Remove Email Attachment folder

    I can't stand the Email Attachments folder. So many users complain about this. We pay for this service, it is a personal drive and I want to be able to control which folders I view and which ones I do not. "It is by design", as recently received this reply from your customer service, made me even more upset. Fire your designer then and get someone from Apple.

  14. OneDrive File/Folder List View Default

    It is incredibly frustrating that you cannot set the file and folder view to a list format. Either they are stuck as icons (can't change to file view) or you have to constantly switch to file view because icon view is the default.

    The icons are too large and take up uneccessary screen space. Some of us rely on the traditional file for for everything.

    Please fix this so that List View can be set as the default for a One Drive Account

  15. Unlimited Photo Storage

    It would be awesome if something like Amazon's Prime photos or Google Photos could be implemented within OneDrive, where users can upload unlimited photos. This could be with or without some sort of compression (similar to Google) to keep things from getting crazy if a lot of people started uploading RAW images. I understand OneDrive unlimited was abused in the past, but having to go to a Microsoft competitor to backup my photo library just seems like blasphemy to a life-long Microsoft fan.

  17. Edit EXIF information on Onedrive

    You can display the EXIF information stored in a picture on OneDrive.com, but you cannot edit them.

    It would be great to select some pictures and correct e.g. the exposure date or the GPS coodinates of the selected pictures at once.

  18. Color Coded Folders

    One feature I really like on Google Drive is that you can color each folder. It helps so much, when making folders for my clients that I can color code each one. It is much less confusing. This is the main reasons I have not swtitched my business folders over to OneDrive.

  20. Allow users to update files by "upload(ing) new version(s)" of files similar to what can be done to a file in Box.com

    On Box.com, users can update files by clicking "upload new version." This would be a great feature to add to OneDrive for management of files that can't be edited with Microsoft Office web apps.
