  1. Bring back black background on photos slides

    Background now is white on photos.

    Please change it back to black, or give users the option to select it.

    For photographers this is important. My wife now is all upset about this.

    • Office 365 missing Mind-Mapping-Tool

      Office 365 and OneDrive is nearly perfect. The only tool I'm missing is a simple mind-mapping-tool. This would complete the great Microsoft product family.

      • OneDrive LAN-sync

        It would be nice if there was an option to sync files over the LAN since it's much faster. Especially if you have to transfer 10's of gigabytes of files.
        This would be grate when you restore a computer and need to download all the files again. It takes forever if you have to download all the files from the web.

        • Add ability to favorite/star images, files and folders in onedrive

          I would love a way to mark a picture as a favorite in some way. An example for use: I am swiping through a folder of pics to choose which images to keep or delete. I would like to have a quick, 1 tap/click icon that would mark that image. Then when I'm when viewing an entire folder you would see a star or something as well as being able to sort by "favorites".

          One important thing this feature would do is sync across all devices, not just show starred on the device you created it. (Dropbox changed their system…

          • Ugly black bar at the top

            Recent UI updates to OneDrive.com came with a very ugly, huge alien black bar at the top. It doesn't fit with the rest of the page and muted tones at all. I figured I'd get used to it but it still looks like something out of 1997, just a "wtf?" decision by the UI team. Makes me wish there was an alternative without this amateur lapse in design judgement, and you know, there is. Your entire competition. I just wouldn't want to switch over something as nitpicky as this, I'd like the whole UI to live up to it's level.

            • Support MKV

              I understand you declined this issue in a previous post, so I'm reopening it here. This is important to your users and saying you are focusing on the "most common" formats is not a reasonable response for most of us. Please reconsider or expand upon your reasoning for not supporting this.

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • File request feature

                    I am looking for file request feature like dropbox. where even unregistered users can upload their files. Basically i want that feature so that my clients can upload their files which range from 2gb to 6gb at times. Where anyone having link can upload their files. I am thinking of buying outlook for business. But there is no meaning of buying it if i cannot do that.

                    • Restrict OneDrive for Business access for specific IP address

                      *English follows Japanese
                      ■Title(件名):
                      指定した IP アドレスからのアクセス制限を OneDrive for Business にのみ適用する機能について

                      Restrict OneDrive for Business access for specific IP address
                      ***************
                      現在、OneDrive for Business を指定した IP アドレス以外からのアクセスを制限するよう設定した場合、SharePoint Online もアクセスが制限されてしまう。
                      OneDrive for Business のみアクセス制限できるよう改善して欲しい。

                      By setting “Allow access only from specific IP address locations” in OneDrive for Business, it cause a restriction for SharePoint sites access as well. We want to allow access to OneDrive for business only in specific Network and at the same time it should not affect SharePoint site access.

                      Thank you for your consideration.

                      • OneDrive : Zip and Unzip File

                        Hello,

                        I would like to suggest you the basic idea regarding onedrive feature. Please add basic functionality like one can zip and/or unzip files directly on OneDrive so each time we don't have to download and upload files on OneDrive. Also, add the functionality to open zip file without extracting the folder on OneDrive.

                        Thanks.

                        • 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.

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

                                • 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…

                                    • 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

                                      • Recover files deleted from bin or deleted after 30 days

                                        Offer a File Recovery option or as a paid service for files excluded from bin and deleted automatically from bin after 30 days.

                                        Provided as a premium service or paid per incident, it would be an extraordinary selling point and advantage compared with other cloud services!
                                        There is a business opportunity being lost in here!

                                        Thanks,
                                        Alex T.

                                        • 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.
