  1. Show captions on photos in shared albums

    I have added captions to the photos in a fairly large album, thinking that when I shared it with others they would see them. But the only way that they can see them is by opening the information pane on each photo.

    Captions are a vital part of sharing photos. They should be visible:
    1) In the slide show
    2) On each full screen photo, with an option to turn them off
    3) On the thumbnail screen, perhaps as tool tips

    Wanted to provide an update: there are no specifics we can share about this request, but I will share with our team who is thinking through the next set of photo investments so this can influence their planning process. Thank you.

  2. Microsoft NEEDS to FIX Onedrive so that files reflect their last modified date/time, not the upload date/time.

    Microsoft NEEDS to FIX Onedrive so that files reflect their last modified date/time, not the upload date/time. This causes many problems when trying to search files from a specif date.

  3. searchable photos by date

    if photos can be searched by date or range of dates, make it more obvious on the onedrive.com. If it's not there, I would love the search by date / range of dates feature to be added.

  6. Print to OneDrive

    I suggest a widely supported "Print to OneDrive" feature. The idea goes that you're on a webpage, you want a PDF of it (such as in the case of a receipt or transaction). You would use the new "Print to OneDrive" feature, which would create a PDF of the page, and save to a pre-specified location on your OneDrive space.

    It would personally save me loads of time, and take some unnecessary steps out of the way.

  7. support and thumbnails for .ARW Sony raw files.

    onedrive support and thumbnails for .ARW Sony raw files would be appreciated. Windows 10, Gdrive, Dropbox and others have this support while it is still lacking from webviews of OneDrive.live.com . Sony has made it's way to the top tiers of the professional photography world and the call to support this system is greater than ever!

  8. 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

  9. logout all active sessions

    An added security features, which would set onedrive apart from the competition would be the ability to logout all active sessions.
    This would be useful for example if i login on somebody else machine and forget a session open.

    it is a rare occurrence , but EXTREMELY dangerous, since i keep all my desktop private files duplicated on onedrive, as most windows users...

  11. Make OneDrive web app much faster at scrolling through photos

    I have thousands of photos on OneDrive.com, and scrolling through the "base" photos view (click on Photos on left nav, all photos show up) is far too slow.

    Please make rendering of the photo "thumbnails" in folders and albums much, much faster.

    A few other possible ways to accomplish this:
    1) Put in fast filters (like file types, or date ranges)
    2) Have a very fast date scroller (jump to 2010 for example)

  15. Give the ability to copy and rename files / folder through web portal

    I currently see no way of copying a file or folder in the same directory (making a copy of it). I would love and option like "Copy and Rename." This would allow me to have folder structure templates that I can easily make a copy of instead of having this template in its own folder and copying it a level up.

  16. Fully support subtitles, captions, transcripts, lyrics, etc. for both playback and editing.

    Subtitles, captions, transcripts, synchronized lyrics, and the like are very important parts of both video and audio.

    If I have a folder in OneDrive with video or audio in it and an identically named (but with a different extension) subtitle file, I definitely want the subtitles to be presented when I (or anyone else) stream that video from OneDrive.

    This is also important for videos and audio which have subtitles, captions, or lyrics embedded within them - either encoded as part of the media stream or muxed into the same file container. (WMV and WMA both have this possibility, among…

  17. Compress files and folders in the cloud.

    Right now, if you have a file or a folder stored on OneDrive that you want compressed/stored as a single file, you have to download or sync locally, compress, and them erase the old data and upload the new one. This is time consuming.

    Adding compressing to OneDrive.com would make it much more seamless.

  18. Enable to adjust video speed on playback

    There is no option to adjust playback speed, which is really a must have when watching long videos. This is a common feature that we see in Youtube and some other leading video sites as well.

    tell us more  ·  Douglas Pearce responded

    Thanks for the request. Have you tried navigating to the tag and then creating an album from there?

  20. 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.
