  1. More storage options - Up to 10TB plan

    Please provide more storage options above the 1TB, as it's not enough and the lack of options is pushing users away to other services.

    Adding 3 new Office plans, shouldn't be too complicated:
    2TB - $£
    5TB - £$
    10TB - $$£

    At least users will have an option!

    Also if an user buy the 5 licences Office, why not allow him to stack subscriptions on the same Microsoft account?

  3. 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.

  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. 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.

  7. Recover files deleted from bin or deleted after 30 days

    Offer a File Recovery option or as a paid service for files excluded from bin and deleted automatically from bin after 30 days.

    Provided as a premium service or paid per incident, it would be an extraordinary selling point and advantage compared with other cloud services!
    There is a business opportunity being lost in here!

    Thanks,
    Alex T.

  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.

    AWR files are Sony Raw photo files.

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

  12. 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.

  13. Pool 5TB across accounts in a O365 Home plan rather than allocating 1TB per user

    I paid $100 for O365 home for five users, but host most of our family's photos and content in my OneDrive. It would really make sense if this came out of everyone's allocation.

    Please change O365 Home plans so that there's 5TB shared/pooled storage--per plan--rather than 1TB per user.

  14. 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.

  15. 'Favorites' section

    I know I have applied this suggestion strictly to OneDrive.com, but realistically this feature should span all platforms. I normally bury my files in a cascade of complex folder structures, and getting to something may be reliable, but cumbersome. Any way to implement a custom 'Favorites' section? This section should be able to point to an entire folder, or a document. Potentially, if you want a leg up on the competition, I would go a step further and set up 'Collections' so that you can add a group of things together for your own easy reference or for sharing, so…

    Function Request: Being able to select multiple files/folders to download and not have them Zipped in the process—have them copied to the new location without being contained in a Zip archive in the process.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

    Restrict OneDrive for Business access for specific IP address

    OneDrive for Business のみアクセス制限できるよう改善して欲しい。

    By setting “Allow access only from specific IP address locations” in OneDrive for Business, it cause a restriction for SharePoint sites access as well. We want to allow access to OneDrive for business only in specific Network and at the same time it should not affect SharePoint site access.

    Thank you for your consideration.
