  1. Sharing between a OneDrive for business account and a OneDrive personal account

    When a file or folder is shared from a OneDrive for Business account to a OneDrive personal account the files should appear in the Shared folder.

    It is ridiculous that the only entry-point for the recipient to access these files is the email containing the share link.

    This is fundamental functionality for OneDrive for business to ever convincingly replace Dropbox shadow IT within an organisation.

  2. Support H.265 videos playback

    Now that Windows 10 natively support H.265, I think it is natural to add playback support on onedrive.com as well.

  3. Automatically upload Outlook.com attachments to OneDrive

    if I send an email to onedrive@outlook.com or any email ID finalized by Microsoft from my registered onedrive email iD, then attached file in my email automatically gets uploaded to my oneDrive cloud.

    Example: Let's say my email ID is xyz@hotmail.com and I am using OnDrive using the same email ID ( i.e xyz@hotmail.com ). Now I send an email from xyz@outlook.com with an attached file to onedrive@outlook.com then this attached file automatically gets uploaded to my OneDrive storage.

  4. Add 'track changes'/'suggestions mode' for Word Online

    In Google Drive, we can share a file in 'comments' mode in which other users can make suggestions to the file BUT only the owner can accept or rejects them. It is pretty much how Word works when the 'track changes' option is enabled.

    In OneDrive and Word Online, we can either share files with full edit rights or no edit right at all - this, makes collaboration work pretty much impossible in certain scenarios.

    This seems to be related to those posts:

  5. 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.

  6. Color Coded Folders

    One feature I really like on Google Drive is that you can color each folder. It helps so much, when making folders for my clients that I can color code each one. It is much less confusing. This is the main reasons I have not swtitched my business folders over to OneDrive.

  8. Bookmark

    This one drive app for iPad is great but lack just one feature called 'bookmark'. With just one small additional, I would forsake the other PDFs readers that have the bookmark feature. Really. Yep. I love the one drive app on my iPad. I am sure that others would agreed with me.

  9. Share Top Level Folder and allow permission for sub folders and files

    Please see the image attached but rather then sharing the top level folder and everybody has access to all sub folders and files we would like to share the top folder and then change permissions if needed on separate files and sub folders.

  10. 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.

  11. Improve the function of OneDrive for Business's [Recently used items].

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Business の [最近使ったアイテム] の改善要望

    Improve the function of OneDrive for Business's [Recently used items].


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business で更新したファイルが自動的に表示される、ライブラリ画面左側の [最近使ったアイテム] 欄について、表示されているファイルを非表示に変更する機能を追加して欲しい。
    ファイルを削除したり、作成し直すと、削除済みのファイルや普段はあまり使用しないファイルなども表示される。
    表示されるファイルを自由に変更できないため、整理ができず使用しにくいと感じます。
    [最近使ったアイテム] 内のファイルの表示を変更できる機能を追加して欲しい。

    We hope you to add the option to hide [Recently used items] section located in the left side of library screen which displays automatically the recently updated OneDrive for Business files. The files not frequently used are also displayed on [Recently used items] once we delete or recreate the files.
    We feel it is inconvenient that we are not able to change the displayed files accordingly.

    Therefore, I hope…

  12. Allow users to update files by "upload(ing) new version(s)" of files similar to what can be done to a file in Box.com

    On Box.com, users can update files by clicking "upload new version." This would be a great feature to add to OneDrive for management of files that can't be edited with Microsoft Office web apps.

  13. Ordering folders numbers

    Please fix the problem ordering folders:


    1. Folder ***

    2. Folder yyy

    3. Folder zzz

    4. Folder www

    Current OneDrive does not order the folders properly with numbers.

    Thanks,

    Fabio

    AWR files are Sony Raw photo files.

    Please add support to create thumb nails like you do with Canon/Nikon raw files.

  15. Lift 1000 files upload limit.

    Many a time I get better speed of uploading or at least immediate upload starting. The 1000 file limit really hurts there. Also suppose I am on a computer without admin access and want to upload my project folder having many short sized files.... I get stuck. When you have a big house, make the roads wide too!!

    We looked at increasing the file upload limit via the browser to OneDrive.com. The reason we chose 1000 was because we wanted a number that worked well in most browsers.

    I’d recommend if you are uploading thousands of files, it is easier to do it via the desktop sync client.

    Will leave this open but likely won’t get to it for a while as it is dependent on browser tech.

  16. Dark mode in onedrive.live.com would be nice

    Dark Mode in onedrive.live.com would be a nice feature

  17. Allow direct acces to shared files using "real" links

    If I have a file stored on my OneDrive account I should be able to share it and access it directly as a link:
    http:\oneDrive.com/userID/document.extention.
    http:\oneDrive.com/userID/image.png

    Now accessing a file is dome using a link... to a web page.

    tell us more  ·  Casey Penk responded

    Hi Elvis, can you tell us more about this suggestion? Currently you can access OneDrive files using the links, like onedrive.live.com/file_name.

  18. 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.

  19. OneDrive integration with iOS 11 Files App

    When will OneDrive integrate with iOS 11 Files App. Both Google Drive, Dropbox support integration with Files App and the ability to drag files into other apps, like Apple email app. Apple iCloud also provides the functionality.

  20. Edit EXIF information on Onedrive

    You can display the EXIF information stored in a picture on OneDrive.com, but you cannot edit them.

    It would be great to select some pictures and correct e.g. the exposure date or the GPS coodinates of the selected pictures at once.
