  2. Sharing files from 3rd party apps - Include option to search for folder

    Situation:
    I often correspond with clients over text & Whatsapp. They send me important information that I need to save on their client folders. Each client has a subfolder on Our Company's OneDrive Site.

    Problem:
    There is no option to search for the folder when uploading the file (e.g. pdf/screenshot from Whatsapp/Text) from a 3rd party app to OneDrive.
    I can only get to the client's folder by scrolling.
    We have a few thousand clients and it is not feasible to scroll to the client’s name every time I need to upload something to his file.
    It creates additional admin…

  3. Warning for special characters in folder title

    There should be a small warning (same as in Windows) when editing a shared folder title, that there are no special characters allowed. We used a hashtag in a title and the folder couldn't be synced, both us and Microsoft support team spent days figuring out the problem.

  4. Allow users to view files that have been shared with them via Files on Demand feature instead of needing to log into the portal view.

    The ability to view files shared with you through the Files on Demand feature rather than having to take extra steps in accessing the online view of OneDrive.

  6. Live file synch only setting

    For sharepoint linked libraries, there should be a setting that allows access to file in online only mode, meaning files are not stored locally .. if there connection to the internet then live synch is active otherwise files aren't available for synching. Files access works the same way windows explorer opens files, and warns users that file is in use, and allow collaboration. Avoids multiple copies of the same file being stored locally by multiple users and creating very annoying upload issues and synching problems.

  7. A OneDrive folder you can not share files from

    We would like to shed my on premise file storage and have all our users use OneDrive for Business. We would like to have a folder created in everyone's OneDrive that they can not accidentally share files from consider it a "safe' folder. The user would have to deliberately move the document out of the "Safe" folder to another area or folder before they could share it .

    This "Safe" folder would be added protection to prevent theaccidental/unintentional sharing trade secrets, personal information, etc...

  10. Smoother app transitions

    You know how, when you try to hide the toolbar, it blinks away, it doesn’t “scroll up” and hide. This is for everything. Even editing a pdf, and moving from all the different editing tools, everything blinks. There’s a lot of app refreshments that could be used, A LOT. Maybe add cute little transitions, like a swirl or just so it doesn’t look so BORING.

  11. schedule for specific files monthly for example

    There Are Files I don´t sync every moment, maybe I need sync a large file weekly. The Internet connection or time is spent if it is synchronized for each modification, but it may be necessary to do it on a regular basis, weekly or monthly, for example.

  12. 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.

  13. 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?

  15. 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!

  17. OneDrive should generate a share-link while a file is still syncing.

    We work with media files which can be larger than most common files.

    A user has to wait for the file to sync before a share-link can be built. This totally breaks the stream of thought for a workflow.

    Dropbox always allowed the link generation immediately.

  20. 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.
