  1. Block Up/Downloading Specific File Types

    The "OneDrive for Business Deny List of File Types for Sync" feature was recently released, however it prevents files from being uploaded only when using the OneDrive Sync client. The same files can still be uploaded using the Web View. This means Administrators STILL DON'T have the ability to define a list of file types that will be actively blocked from up/downloading, while Microsoft if claiming so.

    • Slack integration

      Slack has stellar support for Google Docs. It has no support for OneDrive. Obviously Slack isn't a Microsoft product, but it'd be awesome if y'all could work with the Slack team to make this happen.

      • Make it easier to search for files in the recycle bin. Right now there is no way to search the recycle bin other than scrolling down.

        There is currently no way to efficiently search the recycle bin. The only option is to just scroll down. If you have a large amount of files in the recycle bin like I do, it is sometimes next to impossible to restore the file I am looking for. Another thing is you cannot open folders that are in the recycle bin. So if I am looking for a file in a folder I have to restore the whole folder to get to the file.

          • Allow others to upload & create files in shared folders without needing a Microsoft Account

            Not everyone uses Microsoft stuff. In order for OneDrive to truely be a place for collaboration, people without Microsoft accounts need to be able to access, edit and upload files to the folders that are shared.

            There is already a setting to not require a Microsoft account for viewing or editing. This should be extended to creating and uploading. Especially when the collaboration project requires large files.

            • onedrive web always stalls after uploading few files - hangs on "uploading *** items" for ever (win 10 chrome and Edge)

              i am trying to upload my photos to onedrive via the web. I dont do it via the windows sync app as I dont want this folder synced as its too big.

              I know all the fragile problems with onedrive, and can confirm that:

              all my file names are < 8 chars + ".jpg"
              None of the filenames nor folders have any chars other than ascii
              There is only one level deapth (a directory with files in it)
              I have 300GB of space left in my 1TB (so its not a space issue).
              Files are all < 10MB, so its…

                • Fix issue with missing photo thumbnails in OneDrive web view

                  I've recently started utilizing OneDrive for photo backup from my Win 10 machine and after backing up a dozen or so at least one or two have missing thumbnails on the web view. I've got almost a terabyte of images I'd like to store, but this is a big problem and has been repeatedly reported on the support forums:

                  I've confirmed metadata information so I know that's not the issue as some support techs have stated.

                  Please resolve as this a major issue for having online viewing capabilities.

                  • Thumbnail preview, does not work for jpg files uploaded bye the onedrive sync in windows

                    On onedrive.com, thumbnail preview of jpg files does not work, if the jpg files is uploaded using onedrive sync in windows. If I upload the sames files to a new folder using the browser on onedrive.com, thumbnail preview is showing up on all files. This is happening on all versions of windows 10. It is not a browser issue, the same happens when viewing onedrive in chrome, firefox, edge, ie 11, so it must be an upload problem. Some of the files however shows up correctly.

                    • Sort by file type

                      There should be an option to sort by file type so you can order things more quickly if you are looking for say a word document that you have deleted by accident.

                        • Allow bulk sharing and unsharing

                          I would like the ability to individually select multiple files and folders, or produce a list of files by doing a search - and bulk share/unshare.

                          Example: I have 5000 photo's across 35 folders and they all include a tag with a persons name. I want to be able to search for that tag, see the files and select all and share with that person.

                          Example 2: I save various work files to my OneDrive and want to select 30 out of 50 files and share with my colleagues.

                            I would appreciate to have the ability to see in the properties how many files and folders does a selection of files and folders contain (files and folders selected, plus all the files and folders in all the subfolders of the selection) on the website, like it is possible on Windows: today, you can only know how many elements you have ticked, or how many files and folders does only one folder contain (without including the files and folders in the subfolders).

                                I currently see no way of copying a file or folder in the same directory (making a copy of it). I would love and option like "Copy and Rename." This would allow me to have folder structure templates that I can easily make a copy of instead of having this template in its own folder and copying it a level up.

                                • Print to OneDrive

                                  I suggest a widely supported "Print to OneDrive" feature. The idea goes that you're on a webpage, you want a PDF of it (such as in the case of a receipt or transaction). You would use the new "Print to OneDrive" feature, which would create a PDF of the page, and save to a pre-specified location on your OneDrive space.

                                  It would personally save me loads of time, and take some unnecessary steps out of the way.

                                  • logout all active sessions

                                    An added security features, which would set onedrive apart from the competition would be the ability to logout all active sessions.
                                    This would be useful for example if i login on somebody else machine and forget a session open.

                                    it is a rare occurrence , but EXTREMELY dangerous, since i keep all my desktop private files duplicated on onedrive, as most windows users...

                                    • searchable photos by date

                                      if photos can be searched by date or range of dates, make it more obvious on the onedrive.com. If it's not there, I would love the search by date / range of dates feature to be added.

                                      • Timezone OneDrive (Web) is incorrect.

                                        The OneDrive (like Outlook) has a serious problem with time. In Outlook I can't set my correct time, he always adds extra hours when choosing my time zone, and the OneDrive too. I just edit a document the 5 pm. And the OneDrive says it was edited the 10 pm!

                                        This is an old problem, you do not intend to solve?

                                        • Provide More Storage Plans

                                          Currently there are two paid plans - 50GB or 1TB with Office 365.

                                          I'd love some sort of middle ground. It's a HUGE jump from 50Gb to 1Tb and leaves people in that range stranded. I used to use this service as a backup for my photos. 50Gb is too small for that but I certainly don't need 1Tb and an entire Office suite just for some extra cloud storage.

                                          As it stands I can't back up my personal files on this service and am spoiled for choice by competitors. Bringing back a couple more plan options would make OneDrive…
