  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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:

  7. 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.

  9. Thumbnails for .AWR files

    AWR files are Sony Raw photo files.

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

  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. 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.

  13. Allow uploading of file folders whose name already exists, but which contain new files.

    In Windows 10, I can copy a file folder to another directory where the same folder already exists, and Windows will only copy the files that are not in the target directory. I am then given the option of overwriting or skipping existing files (or saving copy). In OneDrive the program will NOT ALLOW this function, as it only accepts uploads when the file folder does not exist. This makes uploading MUCH MORE DIFFICULT
    than the same operation in Windows 10. Basically you need to delete the target folder and start all over again. Please fix!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Add to my OneDrive for View Only shared folders

    Currently only folders which have been shared with edit permission can be "Added to my OneDrive" to allow sync.

    It would be good if this could be done for View Only folders as well.

  18. Skip file option for uploading

    When you upload files that are already uploaded, onedrive.com will show 2 options, to replace the file or to keep both.

    These 2 options can also be done for all files with the problem. Check the screenshot here: http://1drv.ms/1r2sNSV

    I wish there was a third option where I can cancel uploading all the files that are already there leaving behind the ones that haven't been uploaded. To cancel uploading files I have to manually cancel each and every file.

    You might ask why am I uploading files again. Well, more often than not, some files get uploaded while others don't…

  19. "Block download" option for files shared via external link, but at the same time, allow for editing in browser.

    Allow users with access via external link to edit files on browser, but also prevent them from downloading files via "block download" option enabled. This can ensure files with PII or other sensitive data shared, remains on company's onedrive and improves data compliance, especially in light of recent consumer data privacy rights (CCPA, GDPR, etc...).

  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.
