  1. Stop removing features and functions every time you update OneDrive!

    It is so frustrating that the OneDrive Dev team time after time decides to remove features that we have adopted and gotten used to and dependant upon, when new updates are released. Don't do that! You will end up with a reputation of being unpredictable.

  2. allow users to merge two or more Onedrive account

    You can add/merge multiple accounts in one place, so you can use all data which is available on different onedrive account, at one place. No need to log-in in every account. but user must get sum of all accounts storage space in one place.

  3. Allow a file to be streamed to the cloud without requiring the file's size to be known in advance.

    We develop backup/restore software. Our technology is able, with FTP, DropBox, GoogleDrive, and other cloud storage providers, to stream a backup directly to an archive file in the cloud - without needing to write any data locally. We consider this "backup-directly-to-the-cloud". Unfortunately, OneDrive falls short of capability for this feature. The upload REST APIs (upload sessions) appear to require that a file size must be specified. We would require that the API allow us to begin streaming data to a file before we know the total amount of data that will be included.

  4. Support Mobile Browsers in OneDrive File Picker

    Currently the OneDrive File Picker is not working on Mobile Browsers.
    Tested on WP8.1, IOS8.3 and Android 4.4.4.

    The Ondrive folder opens, but it is impossible to select a file.

    Please allow the file selection to work on Mobile Browsers as well.

    Best Regards,

  8. Add webhooks

    A useful feature would be webhooks to which apps can subscribe in order to be notified of changes.

  10. Do you have any plan to release a Java Client API for new OneDrive API?

    It's great that you provide the RESTful API, but do you have any plan to release a Java Client API for the new version of OneDrive API which released in Feb'15? Or do you already have an option? I am not talking about the Android SDK.

  11. add something by which we can hide files and folders just as in hike messenger we can hide chats.

    as in hike we can click on the hike's icon in the app and it will ask for the pattern which was recorded before as soon as the pattern is done the hidden chats appears. and on again clicking or exiting the app it gets hidden again.

  12. Support MD5 checksum

    Other cloud service providers provide MD5 checksum values (Google, Amazon, etc). By providing MD5 checksums (in addition sha1 and crc32), you allow developers to compare file integrity when importing or exporting to/from OneDrive.

  17. Include TAGS in API

    OneDrive adds a number of Tags against a photo like, Beach, Cat, ...
    When querying meta data against a Photo, it would be great to also include these TAGS.

  18. Support wildcards in redirect_uri

    x.mysite.com and y.mysite.com are for 2 of my customers: x and y.
    And I get new customers a, b, c, etc without my intervention.
    As of now, I have to add by hand a.mysite.com/onedrive in redirect_uri app settings for every new customer and it is painful.
