  1. Have OneDrive play nicer with Rocketbook

    Something happened the week of April 30th. A OneDrive upgrade or something. Rocketbook now keeps failing to send files to OneDrive.

    It is really hard to figure out if it is a security setting or whatever. Very frustrating. It should be easier for users to fix these things.

  3. Need to be able to organise One Drive shared files into own folders without losing shared editing access

    I desperately need to be able to organise shared files into my own folders without losing the shared access or editing ability. Currently, with no way of doing this, all I have is an ever expanding list of hundreds of shared files that make it impossible to locate anything. It seems ridiculous that this was not thought of in the design of One Drive. Google Drive does this - why can't One Drive? At least at the moment, my company hasn't taken away our Google Drive access. This is probably going to happen at the end of the year, and…

  5. Documents as a task in my To-Do's

    It would be great if I can add a document to my Task list in To-Do (like the new functionality in Outlook where I can add a email to my Task list.

    Today I scan my document which I get by post and save them directly in OneDrive. If I have for example a invoice, I would like to add a reminder for that.
    At the Moment I have a Workaround and send me my document by email and add this email to my To-Do App as a new Task.

  6. Adding the column "Date Created" for folders instead of using "Date Modified".

    Adding the column "Date Created" for folders instead of using "Date Modified" Using "Date Modified" for folder creation date only causes confusion among users. Currently, the "Date Modified" column for a folder does not change when a file is created or modified in that folder. there should be a column "Date Created" that shows the actual date when the folder was created. Then there should be a "Date Modified" column that actually shows the date and time when someone added, deleted or modified a file inside the folder

  7. Create list of all files on OneDrive

    I have an account with a complex but logical folder structure and thousands of files shared for various purposes, but i cannot find a way to get a list of these files. Ideally i need a list of the files and the direct path to each one.
    I am basically looking for ways to manage the files more efficiently and be able to send filtered lists of the files to colleagues I am sharing with.

  8. Allow personal annotation for shared files

    Users are allowed to run notes on the shared files but the notes are available for personal view only and not shared like the files.

    This way, users would have personal notes not visible to others but will have a single source for the actual shared file.

    Example, I would be sharing files and discussing it over a meeting. Users can put notes on the shared files as we go along, but then these notes are available for their use only. Notes from other users are not shared, only the file.

  9. Possibility to preset the view-option for shared folders (e.g. "Photo" for Picture Galeries)

    It would be great, if you could preset the view-option for shared folders.
    So far, "List view" is automatically preset. But not only for photographers it would be great, if they could preset folders that only contain pictures to"Photo view".
    It would be sufficient, if the folder would "memorise" the last view that the owner has used.

  10. Stop automatically sharing Office Lens files

    All files scanned with Office Lens are automatically shared with me. This could be hundets of files. There is no overwiew anymore in OneDrive and shared files. I want to disable automatically sharing for Office Lens. Actually I have to remove access file per file after scanning.

  11. schedule a shared folder for deletion

    The ability to share a folder with a contact and schedule that folder for deletion in X number of days.
    so that After the time span has passed the folder is deleted and until that point in time anyone the folder has been shared with is automatically informed that the folder will no longer be available.

    I personally see the rise of digital handoff of data becoming a larger and larger issue... for example a breakup or divorce that comes with a few years worth of OneDrive photos... we don't want to have the folder shared indefinitely as this is…

  13. Set default filename format for automatically uploaded files

    For example, images/video captured on the Xbox One and uploaded to OneDrive will generate a "MM-DD-YYYYhh-mm-ss" type of filename (i.e., "05-01-201912-00-00AM").
    ¶ Personally I would prefer the option to set the default filename to "YYYY-MM-DD
    hh-mm-ss" (i.e., "2019-05-0112-00-00AM"), since this would order the files by year, then month, then day, instead of the honestly awkward month first, then day, then year.
    ¶ Likewise, being able to go from a 12-hour format to a 24-hour format ("00-00-00" instead of "12-00-00_AM") would be useful.

  14. Are there plans to develop a OneDrive add-in for Outlook?

    I wanted to share OneDrive files/folders within an existing Outlook email thread if possible. As of now I currently have to recreate contact lists from my web or desktop account when I choose to share certain files or folders from that account.

  16. Change 'ownership' of a OneDrive folder in Office365 Home

    I have created a file folder structure for someone else in OneDrive and want to give them ownership of it - but am unable to do so as that is evidently 'not an option' yet I could do that if I was using Google Drive. I am using Office365 Home - seems like this should be a no brainer but have been unable to locate any information re this topic unless I'm an Office Business user, which I'm not. Please allow folder owner transfer in Office365 home.

  17. Implement feature to exclude specified files from synchronization

    Need feature to not synchronize certain files, eg. temporary files. We use software that generates a lot of temporary files with a certain naming convention (fixed by software). Unfortunately, these temporary files are NOT removed when the software exits. So, as we collaborate on different computers, we would generate more copies of the same temporary files with each user's name appended to it when OneDrive synchronizes files from each computer. Therefore it would be beneficial (ultimately more efficient) if users can specify certain files (based on file name pattern) to be excluded from synchronization.
