  1. Allow files to be transferred between Microsoft accounts

    Sometimes a person switches Microsoft accounts or wants to merge two existing Microsoft accounts. This means they need to move their files too. Providing a way to transfer ownership of files and folders from one Microsoft account to another would make the process much easier (meaning they don't have to download then reupload the files but can instead just use the Web site).

    • Combine OneDrive Storage

      Allow paid OneDrive users to combine their storage usage. For example, I am a paying Office 365 subscriber that needs more than 1TB of storage that is allotted to my OneDrive account.
      The Office365 plan offers 5 individual accounts, each with 1TB of OneDrive storage. I am only using 2 of the 5 accounts. Why can't I combine 1TB (or more) of storage from one of the other 3 accounts I'm not using with the one that I am using, giving me 2TB of storage space? Or create the OneDrive Storage as a standalone feature that can be added to…

      • Pin folders for quick access

        Every week i need to work on files which are buried inside bunch of folders. It would be nice if i could pin/favorite those files/folders in the homepage of onedrive so that it saves me time getting to those files/folders.

          • 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.

            • Move or Copy to a Shared with me folder

              I have a folder that is shared with me. I have edit permissions on that folder. I need an option to "move" or to "copy" files to that shared folder.

              There is an option to move from the shared folder but I need it the other way around.

                  • Add the ability to sort search results.

                    I would like to be able to sort search results. We already have the ability to sort files within folders. Now it would be nice to be able to sort the files after performing a search. Thank you.

                    • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • Compress files and folders in the cloud.

                            Right now, if you have a file or a folder stored on OneDrive that you want compressed/stored as a single file, you have to download or sync locally, compress, and them erase the old data and upload the new one. This is time consuming.

                            Adding compressing to OneDrive.com would make it much more seamless.

                            • 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.

                              • 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?

                                Alex

                                • 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.

                                    • 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.

                                      • '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…

                                          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.
