    • Hide shared file's path

      When I share a file with someone; he can see my own file's complete path. Lets try a scenario: I have a presentation about a project my boss suggested, I finished my presentation, named it "awesome idea.pptx" and saved it in a folder. I always keep my boss's ideas in a folder named "My Boss's Stupid Ideas". Now I share that presentation with my boss... and guess what.. I get fired!

          • Completely remove automatically generated tags from photos

            My experience, using Norwegian OneDrive, is that the automatically-generated tags do not tag nearly correct enough that I want to use it. Most of them are wrongly tagged, and they mess up my manual tags, making the whole service worthless. The tags don't even have the same translation between the app and the webpage. On the iOS a Court is translated Domstol, which is Norwegian for Court of justice. On the webpage is correct translated, but... you know. Really?

            And there are way to many tags. Some of the tags, like People and Sky, have almost 100% hit, but 90%…

            • Make OneDrive web app much faster at scrolling through photos

              I have thousands of photos on OneDrive.com, and scrolling through the "base" photos view (click on Photos on left nav, all photos show up) is far too slow.

              Please make rendering of the photo "thumbnails" in folders and albums much, much faster.

              A few other possible ways to accomplish this:
              1) Put in fast filters (like file types, or date ranges)
              2) Have a very fast date scroller (jump to 2010 for example)

                Thanks for the suggestion. If you don’t mind sharing in the comments, could you let us know how large your photo library is?

              • Search specific Folders

                Onedrive has a "Search Everything" function. Now that I have a lot of data on Onedrive, that results in too many hits. I suggest you have a way to choose specific folders that you can search in.

                  • Option to disable Skype in OneDrive.

                    In OneDrive I work with documents. It is annoying to see notifications from Skype there, especially when I need to refresh a page every time to remove that orange dot.

                    • Microsoft NEEDS to FIX Onedrive so that files reflect their last modified date/time, not the upload date/time.

                      Microsoft NEEDS to FIX Onedrive so that files reflect their last modified date/time, not the upload date/time. This causes many problems when trying to search files from a specif date.

                      • Bring back Check Out/Check In function in new OneDrive interface

                        The "classic" OneDrive for Business UI allowed users to Check Out/Check In documents; please bring it back! This is a hugely important feature for some of my clients; they use it to add comments to document versions and to minimize the editing chaos that can happen on shared documents. This option is still there when they switch back to classic mode, so the functionality is obviously still there on the back end, but the new UI gives no way to get to it. Please fix this before forcing everyone onto the new UI for good!

                        • support and thumbnails for .ARW Sony raw files.

                          onedrive support and thumbnails for .ARW Sony raw files would be appreciated. Windows 10, Gdrive, Dropbox and others have this support while it is still lacking from webviews of OneDrive.live.com . Sony has made it's way to the top tiers of the professional photography world and the call to support this system is greater than ever!

                            • Anonymous upload to a shared folder

                              Recently we wanted to use a onedrive folder for people in a work group to upload their documents.
                              The idea is the Admin shares a folder for UPLOAD (only) and sends the access link to the group. Users in the group can upload their files (WITHOUT SIGNING IN). Only admin has editing rights for the content of the folder

                              • Fully support subtitles, captions, transcripts, lyrics, etc. for both playback and editing.

                                Subtitles, captions, transcripts, synchronized lyrics, and the like are very important parts of both video and audio.

                                If I have a folder in OneDrive with video or audio in it and an identically named (but with a different extension) subtitle file, I definitely want the subtitles to be presented when I (or anyone else) stream that video from OneDrive.

                                This is also important for videos and audio which have subtitles, captions, or lyrics embedded within them - either encoded as part of the media stream or muxed into the same file container. (WMV and WMA both have this possibility, among…

                                  Allow OCR for Scanned Documents (images/pdf)... and index results for directory level searches.

                                  I want a "paperless house" which involves scanning all my paperwork, it can then be auto-uploaded to a neat onedrive.com folder. Great but how do I find specific documents once i've uploaded 10,000?

                                  I wish to be able to search my entire directory or drive for image/PDF scans featuring the word "Tax", for example.

                                  At this time OCR work very well within documents but the same search at the directly only returns text based document results.

                                  OCR'ing and indexing the results for every document is no small…

                                    • Schedule sync frequency for designated files.

                                      large files with numerous small changes are very slow in the application due to the frequency of the sync. Attempted to place accounting data files on one drive, but it will sync the entire file after every entry. This made it unusable in the cloud. If sync only occurred upon closing the application, it would allow for data sharing among devices. Incremental sync might also solve this issue. Thanks

                                      • Annotate shared PDFs on the web

                                        I recently got invited to annotate a PDF shared with me (editing enabled) via OneDrive. Unfortunately this isn´t possible yet; I had to download a 20 Mb file, annotate it in Adobe Reader, reupload it to my own OneDrive, send a link...

                                        Please implement collaboration features on annotating PDFs like it is possible in Word Online!

                                        • Fix size metadata bug

                                          When uploading certain PNG files the size is incorrectly reported on the OneDrive website and in the Photo object returned by the REST API. This can be reproduced using the following PNG file: http://www2.zippyshare.com/v/11270772/file.html
