  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. add "open with" button when right click

    there are many files extension out there. in google drive they have option for user to open file with apps from the store. I think this open with button will also expand to addins for onedrive and sharepoint

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. Indicate how many times a file has been downloaded

    If I share a link to a file with someone, it would be nice to know if it has been downloaded. And if possible, by whom.

  11. Why doesn't OneDrive have a way to loop the picture slideshow??? It just stops at the end without a loop option.

    Microsoft needs to improve its products. Features like this matter to customers.

  12. improve file sharing via copy link without having to specify a person

    It would be nice to be able to share a file by hitting "copy link" without having to specify people with whom to share. Clicking "copy link" could then prompt you if you want to make the link public, public only to those with the link, only with people within my organization, or if I really do want to specify people with whom to share.

  13. User information

    When uploading files, if I have 14,000 files to upload, I really don't care how many KB, MB or GB are being done. Tell me HOW MANY are copied and HOW MANY remain to be done. Simple Math

  14. I Quit OneDrive

    I have to quit OneDrive. I do not ever have these 2 issues with Dropbox or GDrive:
    1. No matter what I do Documents stay in Edit Mode when Copied or Sent. Blue and red correction marks remain. Useless.


    1. I had a from you. Link for a Document 'Pastor in the Slammer'. I sent this Link out all over. I happened to open the Link again after a long time. This Link opened anybody who had it right into my OneDrive Account. Bizarre! I Deleted everything in the Account. Horrors that all this time this Link gives access to anyone…

  16. Allow the user to skip files that get synced

    Typically in a managed pc scenario you will have files that the user does not have rights to update. These files continually error on the sync process. It would be helpful to be able to skip those files and continue with the sync process.

  17. Bug: trying to change the "allow edit, view only" permissions fails on chrome or edge dev. It works with old edge. Please fix.

    Bug: if you try to change the "allow edits, or view only" permissions on sharing an album link fails on chrome or edge dev browsers. The Check-box disappears before you have a chance to check or un-check the "allow edits". It works on old edge.

  18. Auto tagging for only predetermined tags


    • An option to auto-tag only already existing tags, and do not create new tags.

    The current system is a mess and has no use. If you wanna use tag pictures for the search, you don't have to show us search tags. People tag pictures to organize them in multiple categories without copying the same files in different folders.


    • Also before slapping tags on pictures, suggest them instead.

    • Maybe if it's possible and scaleable suggest tags based on our previous tags.

  20. Ability to convert HEIC to JPG.

    When downloading images/photos from OneDrive, they are in the HEIC format which prevents from using them with PC applications (including Office applications). I can't attach theses images to emails or into documents.
