  1. 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.

  2. 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?

  5. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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!!

  10. If you have multiple shared OneDrives, allow more than one to sync to your mac

    I support several small organisations with free subscriptions, and we sync files locally. However you can only sync one OneDrive onto the mac using the free account, or a personal account. That means mingling lies from different organisations into one folder to enable synching potentially - and I just don't like mixing different content - due diligence and all that.

  11. Pasting links

    I recently transitioned from Office personal to Office 365 business and migrated OneDrive over to business as well.

    However, when I post links in places such as Facebook and LINE app, the file name is no longer included which is really frustrating. Is there any plan to include this functionality in the business version of OneDrive?

    I've attached what happens when posting the same file in both OneDrive personal and business - as you can see, they are very different with the business version losing identifying information. :(

  12. Fix the different behaviour for the Web interface and Mobile apps for shared and "Added to my OneDrive" folders

    When the shared by others folder with Edit permissions is "Added to my OneDrive", the view of this folder from the "Files" location allows you to RENAME the folder. The mobile app (both iOS and Android) manages to revert the folder's name back to the original (since it belongs to another user/account), but the Web interface (and respectively, the sync engine) keeps showing the re-named folder in "Files", while in "Shared" tab it looks as original. To avoid the confusion, the option "RENAME" should be removed from the shared folders, that were added to my OneDrive, if it is not…

  13. 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

  14. 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…

  16. Update the Files experience

    In OD4B, in the Files section, please make the following change:

    1. make the personal folders yellow, and make all shared folders blue. This will make the shared folders much easier to find.

  17. 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

  18. 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."

  19. Download shared files without sign-up

    Currently, files can only be viewed, not downloaded without a OneDrive about when shared. That's a real hybrids given the amount of people who are NOT in OneDrive. Sharing becomes almost a useless feature that way as you can't keep asking people to sign up just to be able to receive your shares!
