  1. Implement a OneDrive API SDK in golang

    Golang is growing in popularity (e.g. Docker). And by creating static, cross platform binaries it enables a much simpler day two support model for applications implemented with it.

  2. Sync with WD MyCloud NAS

    I'd love to see an app for the WD MyCloud NAS to sync my OneDrive like there is for Dropbox already.

  3. Javascript SDK for new OneDrive Api

    Currently there are only pickers and savers available for the new OneDrive Api.

    If you now say, I should use the Javascript Live SDK, why you created a new api, which is less impressiv than the old?

  7. file lock or checkout (REST) api to prevent overwriting and deletion

    people can make one drive file editor
    by using download/upload api
    or file picker
    or file handler addin.

    but there is no way to lock/unlock or checkout/checkin files.
    so concurrent modification of user A can be overwrited by user B right after.

  8. Provide the functionality to playback the videos smoothly regardless of the interfaces.

    Recently, I am uploading the videos shooted by the Android devices and use them in OneDrive for Business. However, I feel inconvenient that the users cannot playback the videos in the Modern UI so far. Incidentally, all videos will be able to playback by switching to the Classic UI on a browser in the Internet Explorer.

    There is no such video as configured with…

  9. Show path of file in details section

    When I'm searching for an file and I found it, I'm missing the functionality to get the current positon of the file. It would be nice if the filepath will also be displayed in the details page.

  10. File appending/concatenation

    It would be nice to be able to upload multiple files to OneDrive and then, once they're uploaded, join them together into one file.

    On Windows, this can be achieved through the following command:

    copy /b 1.txt + 2.txt + 3.txt all.txt

    It would be great for this functionality to be available on OneDrive too. Amongst other uses, this could be useful for working around issues with uploading large files.

    As there isn't a method for extending the expiry date of an upload session, the user is given a deadline by which they must complete the uploading of their file.

  11. Webhook support for (non-root) Drive Items Microsoft Graph API

    I'm wondering if Webhook subscriptions for non-root Drive Items will be added. Specifically I'm asking of subscriptions to Group Drive items, so that functionality like SharePoint's 'Alert me' when file changes can be implemented.

  12. 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.

  14. music

    it would be nice to have the app go to the next song in order so you don't have to keep selecting the next song after the last song finishers.

  15. Allow basic user to view shared folder from business user on mobile apps!!!

    I have an Onedrive business account and a basic one. I discover that the shared folders from business account to basic account cannot be shown on current ios apps. They can only be viewed on browser.

    Can MS development team allow the shared folders from business to be view on current mobile apps? It definitely helps us to share the information to clients who don't have the business account but can view the folders on apps with basic account.

    Many related topics have been posted in past several years. I wish MS can take a look to the issue. Thanks…

  16. Enable webhooks for app-only scenarios for SharePoint and Teams folder

    I would like to be able to register a webhook on a SharePoint/Teams folder to perform some specific actions whenever a file is created or updated. Currently, that feature is disabled (error message: "Cannot create app-only subscriptions for OneDrive resources"). The idea is to automatically create a repository of meta data, images in documents, et cetera based on these notifications

  20. Copy - Paste files

    Hey MS ON Team,

    Tonight I had the necessity to copy some files from one folder to another... Unfortunately is just possible to move them.

    Don't you think the ability to move, copy, paste, rename, delete or even create files/folders (manageability), should be a MUST by now in your app (OneDrive in this case)?

    Also an efficient and reliable way to share, more easy to manage view or edit permissions to certain content!!! Check your actual options and functionality, PLEASE DO IT.

    I hope soon you make it possible... Really.

    Thanks and best x all.
