  1. 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.

  3. Allow comments on shared folder/files and send notification once the comment is added

    Allow comments on shared folder/files and send notification once the comment is added. This feature was available before. It's very important for team project and collaboration.

  4. 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?

  5. Allow Copy of Folders AND files

    Allow the ability to copy folder(s) AND folder contents from the client to OneDrive. Only allowing individual files limits the usefulness of OneDrive.

  7. 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…

  11. Allow Onedrive to rename extensions

    Onedrive does NOT really serve as a cloud service if I can't rename file formats!!

    If I need to DOWNLOAD a file, then rename it, then UPLOAD the same file, because Onedrive won't let me rename a file extension - it's not really a cloud service... I'd rather use dropbox.

  12. Allow adding a file to multiple folders with Shift Z ala Google Drive

    I want to be able to save a file in multiple folders without duplicating the file. Google Drive allows this functionality with Shift Z. Can OneDrive also support this?

    OneDrive for Business の利用を制御すると、現状は Teams のプライベートまたはグループ会話内の添付が行えなくなる動作となるため、OneDrive for Business の制御を実施した場合も Teams のプライベートまたはグループ会話内の添付を実施できるよう機能の拡張を希望します。

    We cannot attach an item in Teams private/group chat where OneDrive for Business access is restricted. We want to restrict OneDrive for business access but at the same time it should allow attaching files to Teams chat.

  14. Increase the file size limit to 5TB (like Google Drive)

    I deal with large files and can’t wait for OneDrive to beat / exceed Google on this. Google Drive has had a 5TB file size limit for over 3 years! I love my OneDrive, however, and know you guys can outshine Google at this.

  15. Search function

    your search function in OneDrive is pretty primitive. Unable to search the content within the documents, rendering it useless if we have thousands of files in storage.

    Add option to copypaste images in Office Online

    OneDrive for Business 上の画像ファイルを貼り付ける際は事前にローカル PC 上にダウンロードする必要があるため、手間がかかる。
    OneDrive for Business 上の画像ファイルを Office 365 上で貼り付ける機能を提供して欲しい。

    Every time we attach images in Word Online, we have to go to local file to find it. To copypaste images that is on OneDrive for Business, we have to download it fist to local PC and is pretty time consuming. Add option to copypaste images directly from OneDrive for Business to Office Online.

  20. 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.
