  1. Add Anonymous Deposit Feature like DropBox "File requests"

    Currently, Microsoft requires every user to be logged in with a Microsoft account in order to access any OneDrive folder over the web. I understand that helps expand Microsoft's install base. However, for we users who need to provide an easy way for customers or prospective customers to give us files, this is a complete show-stopper. Even in their free plan, DropBox offers "File requests" (in the core Left navigation), which generates a link to any DropBox folder. Anyone we give that link can deposit files. DropBox asks for their name and e-mail address, but there's no validation. This is…

  4. Shared Albums Show in Albums

    It would be nice if Albums which were shared with me would show up in my Albums versus me having to go Shared>Sharer>Album. Would love to see this feature integrate with the W10 Photo's app as well.

  5. Automatically empty the Recycle Bin after a certain time (or storage) limit

    I tend to get a lot of files in my OneDrive Recycle Bin, most of which I had intended to delete permanently. It would be nice if I could set my Recycle Bin to automatically empty itself after a certain time (or storage) limit.

  6. Shared items

    Multiple ways to view shares; By file, by person its shared with. Ability to remove shared permissions in multiple files at once rather than one at a time or remove all files shared with someone. Make it easy and user friendly to modify shares. If I want to change a write edit to read only for example.

  7. Uploading

    When uploading, how about a status bar? Either by file size or percentage. Now when uploading, since no way to tell how long, seems like forever waiting to complete upload.

  8. Upload folder

    Hi,

    can you allow us to upload folder instead of files. It could be much easier. I know it's possible with Chrome, but should be possible without Chrome.

    Thank you

  11. Add to my OneDrive for View Only shared folders

    Currently only folders which have been shared with edit permission can be "Added to my OneDrive" to allow sync.

    It would be good if this could be done for View Only folders as well.

  12. Import to OneDrive from Dropbox, iCloud & Co.

    Import data with a share Link from Dropbox or iCloud to OneDrive, so you don't have to download and upload it again, especially when the data is big.

  13. Allow Copy files from shared folder to personal folder without downloading and uploading again

    I've just received a shared folder from a photography company, they have all the files for my English club and gave me the OneDrive link yesterday. But I have to download it all (10GB in total) and upload it again to my personal folder (because in my OneDrive, I shared a folder with my English club to work). That's extremely time-wasting !

    I think you should allow/enable the function of copy files from shared folder to personal folder, to make it more comfortable for users.

  15. Allow uploading of file folders whose name already exists, but which contain new files.

    In Windows 10, I can copy a file folder to another directory where the same folder already exists, and Windows will only copy the files that are not in the target directory. I am then given the option of overwriting or skipping existing files (or saving copy). In OneDrive the program will NOT ALLOW this function, as it only accepts uploads when the file folder does not exist. This makes uploading MUCH MORE DIFFICULT
    than the same operation in Windows 10. Basically you need to delete the target folder and start all over again. Please fix!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. Allow comments on shared folder/files and send notification once the comment is added

    Allow comments on shared folder/files and send notification once the comment is added. This feature was available before. It's very important for team project and collaboration.

  20. LINUX - backup your websites, blogs, forums

    most people buy webhosting on LINUX platforms because its cheaper but they need backup solutions and OneDrive could be IT. Millions of users of Ubuntu, CentOS 7 and others would be potential Microsoft clients t backup their VPS servers.
