  1. Why not create a private drive?

    PrivateDrive is an option for OneDrive to become Private and can only be accessed by entering a pin/ Password

    PrivateDrive could keep all files save.
    If someone tries to get into the PrivateDrive and fails 4 times
    Microsoft will send a alert text to you to see what's happened.

    Please Consider this idea

  2. Fix no sound/audio to play in 3gp format videos on onedrive.live.com

    Requests made numerous times that you fix audio in .3gp format that does not play in a video to my Lumia 640 phone sent from my daughter's iphone on my Windows 7 computer at my online Onedrive.live.com account. All I ever got from Onedrive Support was many back-and-forth emails on several occasions to perform so many steps that never solved the problem and were not my preference of choice to use/try, i.e. use Internet Explorer brower--I use Firefox--and a slew of others steps that NEVER resolved the problem. WHAT GOOD IS A CLOUD IF IT CAN'T PLAY SOUND/AUDIO OF STANDARD…

  5. Suggestion

    Hi
    Can you look at adding a "select all" button at the empty trash menu.. I am sure many users will appreciate to use that button instead of having to select all the files one by one especially when you have too many files after a long period of time. Thank you for the consideration.

  6. allow videos to be embedded at any size

    Right now, videos embed at 320x180, which is hardcoded inside the iframe. Noo matter how large I make the iframe, the video player itself stays that tiny.

    I suggest REMOVING the dimensions from the player, setting them instead to 100% of the width of the containing iframe. The sample embed code would then have 320 x 180 as the default dimensions for the iframe, but a saavy designer/developer could remove those dimensions and make the video as large as they needed it to be and scale it responsively.

  7. Enable custom thumbnails on business accounts

    The page https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/developer/rest-api/api/driveitem_put_thumbnailset_content?view=odsp-graph-online specifies that custom thumbnails are only available for personal accounts. They should be available for all accounts.

  11. Design

    Have you guys had a chance to use the Google photos app? I love one drive, but it would be awesome to see attention paid to the little details like you see in competing apps. More people will is the app if it offers a better experience. That better experience can't be just the bar if making sure it works but also how it makes a person feel when they use it.

  13. Create ruby gems to wrap the APIs to Office 365 and OneDrive

    I want to create a business application whereby end users can create an Excel spreadsheet and then to asking colleagues to fill in (copies of) the spreadsheet, and then collate the resulting sheets together (and ideally produce a summary), with monitoring statistics / summary report to see who has completed it and who hasn't.

    Our core business application is written in Ruby on Rails so it would be great to have some gems that help with this.

  14. Allow controlling enable/disable of validation code when sharing with external users.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):外部ユーザーとの共有における検証コードを用いた招待の制御について

    Allow controlling enable/disable of validation code when sharing with external users.

    ■Description(内容):
    ​新UIにてアイテムを右クリックし、[共有] から外部招待を実施した場合、検証コードで認証する形で招待メールが送信されてしまう。
    検証コードでの認証が有効となっている場合、Office 365 アカウントや Microsoft アカウントとして登録されていないメール アドレスについても招待できてしまい、コードさえあればアイテムにアクセスできてしまう。
    外部共有にて匿名アクセスのリンクを有効化し、従来UIやアクセス許可の付与から行った場合にはアカウント認証を必要とする形で招待メールが送信されるが、そもそも検証コードの利用したくない場合の設定項目が存在しないため、必要に応じて設定変更できるよう制御する機能も実装してほしい。

    I am concerned that the invitation mail will be sent in the form of the verification code in case of right-clicking on the item and execute an external invitation by [Share] option in the modern UI.

    If validation code authentication is enabled, you can also invite email addresses that are not registered as Office 365 accounts or Microsoft accounts, also you can access the items if you only have code which is undesirable for…

  18. Add Support for Sync File Path (Removable Media)

    Ok, so today I got concerned about my drive getting too full, with documentation. I'm sure I'm not the only individual/business or even budding entrepreneur with files of business activities in their personal computer. Perhaps enabling a sync path for removable media, such as UBS or MicroSD could allow easy transitions for on the go entrepreneurs out of the office.

    This would be a great feature, because of tablets and mobile phones with MicroSD slots, or even laptops with USB ports. Imagine this: A CEO that needs to download files for a presentation at another office, or a law firm…
