  1. Newest-first shared album display

    I've shared an album using a published link, but been advised that it's not possible to change the photo display order from oldest-first. This means that repeat visitors will need to scroll to the end every time to check for newly-posted items. Can the 'newest first' sort order be applied to an album?

  4. Auto collect photos from shared album

    I have O365 and use OneDrive to store and share photos with friends also have O365. It is very painful to download the photos from my friend's OneDrive and upload them to my own OneDrive. Can we have a auto collect photo feature. Instead of downloading, one can auto collect photos or album from friend's shared albums. Thx!

  5. Guys, for next level in the China add a "simple-to-do" & "mobile&laptop-friendly" WECHAT app sharing option for files.

    People spend an average of 2-3h a day on wechat in China.
    It is one of the mostly used channels to share documents that aim for 1:1 or groups of people.
    It is fast.
    It is easily re-accessible.
    It can work on multiple devices.

  6. For me to use the 100% onedrive - share equal dropbox folder

    For me to use the 100% onedrive - share equal dropbox folder

    It would be great if he shared a folder and made the folder locally equal to the dropbox, where several people can save and show the files to all that are allowed.

    In the dropbox when we share a folder, it appears to the person, everyone can save that folder locally on your PC.

  7. Please don’t tag my stuff!!

    area so why were my created folders not there? In settings I selected When MS gives an option to not tag “MY” PHOTO'S and DOCUMENTS, I would think that is exactly what MS would do!! Please, DON’T tag MY STUFF!! I specifically used the MS feature to create my own folders. When I tried to move an item by selectingThey were dated, separated, and not the way I created them. I never left that file. ‘move to” all my folders were not there. In settings I selected NO!!

  9. Read only access at folder and file level -useful for accessing archived data

    This is traditional database access idea so users or customers can view documents but can't ***** with carefully curated data on OneDrive - so no edits, updates, deletes

  10. One Drive sync problem on iPhone

    I have One Drive app + Word app on my IPhone. Created doc on computer, saved in onedrive, shared for editing. Opened doc on iPhone word app edited doc. Edits not showing on onedrive app. Edits show on computer browser and iPhone Word app. It is like onedrive app not syncing. On email and other apps pulling the screen down generates a sync cycle. MS needs to add this feature to the onedrive app.
    This is a problem as when traveling on business i will review edits by team members on iPhone onedrive app if it doesn’t sync i will…

  12. different accesses to folders under a main folder

    It was not possible to differentiate access to different folders. Example: A main folder, which everyone has access to, then subfolders, to which a special group of people have access

  13. Hi, please make the Excel sheets on OneDrive less laggy. I feel like I'm on dial up sometimes when I try to open, save, or cross-reference

    Should be a way for the sheets to locally reference each other while on the drive rather than having to save local copies and then figure out referenceable work arounds...it crashes my excel when I try to do even simple cross-references because it's on my computer, going into the cloud to reference and then pulling that information back down from the cloud; I've had entire workbooks corrupted and hours of work lost because of this short-sighted "solution."

  14. Send email to all shared with

    I would like to have option to select all users that I have shared file with and send them email notification.
    This can be very usefull when you hfor example restore file from previous version due to something and you want to notify everbyody that they can work with it or the have to refill their data into such file.
    Currently it is not possible, users has to be picked one by one.
    Thank you

  15. Display in a table the email, date invite sent, access (r/w), and if user has accessed for ALL users... my list tops displays only 20

    I love love love OneDrive- great work. Sharing is easy. But MANAGING the shared documents/notebooks etc. is a total fiasco. There is no tabular method to review and manage ALL of the emails. My sharing list tops out at about 20 people. Neither of the two options below allow me to see the name or email, the DATE SENT, if the person has used the link and I don't see any place to see everybody in a single table. I am sharing with about 80 people total as View and 6 Edit.

  16. Sharing OneDrive for Business items from the Modern UI

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Business のモダン UI からの共有について

    Sharing OneDrive for Business items from the Modern UI
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    MC165027 の適応に伴い、モダン UI から共有の際に、権限の詳細設定の画面に遷移することができなくなり、アイテムに対して固有の権限の設定や削除が行えない。
    詳細設定の画面へ遷移を可能するか、同様の設定項目の追加を希望します。

    After MC165027 was applied, users became unable to grant or delete unique permissions to items when sharing items via the Modern UI because currently they cannot navigate to the advanced settings page for permissions.
    For improvement of usability and manageability, allow navigating to the advanced setting page or granting/deleting unique permissions without going anywhere.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  18. Ability to email and text people when sharing files

    Was thinking it be great to have the ability to not just email shared content with participants, but also to text them. I am using remind and constant contact. My open rate on texting people vs emailing people to respond on shared files is so much higher. I think people respond best to text than email.

  19. Let me open documents in the source application instead of online application.

    Documents that always open in the online application are frustrating, especially if it is a Word template that I simply want to use, not edit. Online does not allow me to just use it, it actually opens the template in editing mode. NOT GOOD.
    Allow me to decide how I want documents to open; online app or source app.

  20. Shared folder name synced to computer

    When I sync down the shared folders, a separate folder is created for each folder that is shared by the owner and with the name changed. We received multiple requests from our users that its confusing and would help to have a single folder created for the user who shared and all folders shared by that person will be in there.
