  1. Allow to sort pictures by the date they were taken

    After I pressed "sync" on my Android, it's all a mess.
    Old pictures got uploaded again and they now appear in the Feb and March 2021 folders. While this should not happen by itself, a function to sort by date taken would help

  2. When I rename a file, focus the field for me

    When I click "Rename" in the context menu, a field pops up. Focus the field for me, so I don't have to click it.

  4. Seriously, how is this page helpful. Just more confusion. That is the problem OneDrive is not easy enough to operate. Can't find files.

    Call Jeff besos over at Amazon and ask him how he completely nailed user-friendly 100%. You are way off that percentage. I have to know the name of the file to find it and that is not always the case. Sometimes I have to scroll through a folder saved on my desktop. You don't offer that option. Sometimes I have to scroll just to find the name of the folder. You don't offer that option.

  7. Add option to disable ransomware checks

    The ransomware detection is great! However, I have multiple end-to-end-encrypted files lying on my OneDrive. Whenenver I change something about these files, I get ransomware notifications. It would be great if there was an option to disable ransomware notifications, either entirely or on a folder-per-folder basis.

  8. Allow Office theming like found in Outlook

  9. Ability to rename shortcuts

    Microsoft recently introduced the "Add shortcut to OneDrive" for shortcuts of shared folders/files in OneDrive or Sharepoint sites. Once synced to the PC, this shortcuts can be renamed to whatever you like. This option is not available in OneDrive on the web, thus we cannot rename shortcuts from the web interface.

    Add the option to rename shortcuts from within OneDrive's the web interface.

  10. Allow Users to Set the Default Page Size for New Documents

    When using OneDrive in a browser, you can create a new Office document, such as Word.

    There is no facility to change the default page size for this new document (e.g. A4). It can be changed via the Layout | Size menu but it would be preferable to have the desired value set by default.

  12. The recents list should update faster specially when coming from Office Lens

    My workflow is as follows -


    1. I take pictures on Office Lens from my mobile and choose to save a pdf in OneDrive.

    2. I open OneDrive on my PC to use those pdfs, mostly uploading on a portal.

    The "recents" list in onedrive web does not update quickly. I have to manually navigate to My Files -> Documents -> Office Lens and then sort by date modified to see my recent pdfs.

  13. Moving files/documents after searching for it in the Search Bar (Business use OneDrive)

    All the options don't come up on the file/document when we search for it in the Search Bar. For example, if we want to have the option to move a document, we have to go through all the folders to get to that location instead of just searching for it in the Search Bar. Very time consuming. Can you please allow all the options to be available in the file/document when searching for it in the Search Bar.

  15. Implement a method to One Drive if the final file size is not known ahead of time for uploading large files.

    Our application will frequently have the need to upload a stream of bytes for a file to One Drive, and we won't know the size of the file ahead of time. I am aware of the documentation for One Drive here that clearly indicates it is not possible, but I am really hoping if there's a way to work around this.

    Or is there any work being done to enhance the REST API so we can do this? Google Drive uses a very similar method for uploading large files, but supports unknown file sizes by doing this with the Content-Range…

  19. Make password protected folders password protected at all times

    Hello Microsoft,

    I don't know if this is a feature or a bug but it is causing a great security risk for us.

    Our Office 365 users create shared folder in OneDrive (Anyone Link + password) that they use on non-trusted (shared) computers to transfer files on and from said computers.

    This technique allow them to transfer files without having to log into their Office 365 account from these non-trusted computers which would be quite worst. (See my other request).

    The problem is: if the browser is set to automatically resume session on startup (wich re-opens all tabs that were…

  20. Disable autologon to all MS 365 services at once

    Hello Microsoft

    If someone logs in to any Office 365 service in a browser, this person gets connected to ALL MS 365 services :


    • Outlook.com

    • Teams

    • Office.com

    • Word, Excel, OneNote etc

    • Microsoft 365 admin portal

    • Others?

    This is a great security risk.

    Example:


    • A user goes on a shared computer in a hotel.


    • Logs into outlook.com using his credentials to check corporate emails.


    • Phone rings, dad died, runs away from the computer.


    • Next person sits at the same computer: not only does he have access to Outlook, he only needs to go on any other MS 365 services webpage listed…
