  1. Implement resumable uploads

    I think I speak for everyone here when I say that we're sick and tired of seeing "Oops. An error occurred" on our screen when we try to upload files. I'm using OneDrive for backup and this has happened numerous times, at one point when my upload status for a given file was at 95%. Implementing resumable uploads will save users time and bandwidth should they come across this problem as constantly as I do.

    Google Drive does it, Box does it, why not OneDrive?

  2. Better description for sync status

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    同期の完了について

    Better description for sync status


    ■Description(内容):
    同期フォルダーの状態が全て"同期済み" となっているが、同期クライアントが"処理中です" の状態は、ユーザーが同期の確認をする際に同期フォルダーと OneDrive for Business との同期が完了していると誤認識してしまう恐れがあるため、わかりやすい表示に変更を希望いたします。

    When all the sync folders are in “Synced” status but at the same time the sync client is in “Working on it” status, it seems like the sync between sync folder and OneDrive for Business have already completed and it might confuse users.
    For that reason, please change the descriptions of the status to more user friendly and understandable.

  5. Allow Groove Music App to select a shared Music Folder for playback

    I have 3 separate family users on one PC. My main user account has all my music synced to one Drive Music folder and groove music app finds the music and plays it. I have shared the music folder with the other 2 users who have added the shared folder to their one drive accounts. All has synced fine. The other 2 users cannot however choose the shared music folder in their groove app as it is not the default Music folder set up by one drive. Is there a way I can get Groove to recognise the shared music…

  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. markdown

    I would like to share HTML and Markdown files that fully render to shared users. Currently such shares show only source code. :(

  8. Company Policy Message in OneDrive for Business Modern View

    Display company policy message: Is there a way to create a company policy message (eg, "Records and information stored in OneDrive is for Business use only...."?). on the header of OneDrive? It's important to display the company policy so users know that OneDrive is not for personal use.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Allow users to host podcasts with OneDrive

    Users are paying for space and bandwidth, so they should be able to host their own podcasts with OneDrive! That would entail generating an RSS feed based on content in a folder and exposing URLs to the actual files themselves.

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  16. Make it possible to exclude certain folders from being included in "Photos" views. i.e. A folder named *** perhaps????

    Photos view pulls all image files including weird images that are used as backgrounds or borders on downloaded websites and images that one might want to keep but might not want to accidentally share when looking for grandchildren photos while others can see the screen. It should be possible to tell One Drive to ignore a certain folder or folders when searching for photo files to display in photo view.

  17. Option to disable any kind of preview on shared file links

    In OneDrive for Business, in many scenarios file preview does not work properly, or is confusing for users.

    For example:
    - When you try to anonymously share large Excel file, preview is not working and blocks any access to the file
    - When you try to share a zip archive, content preview is shown and users try to select folders or files before clicking "Download", which forces OneDrive to repack those files
    - What's worse, when above zip is large (above 200MB), this repack silently fails and user gets an incomplete file (users usually don't notice _AllErrors.txt file added…

  19. 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.
