  1. Add webhooks

  3. 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.

  4. Source Code Editor

    It is my understanding that one used to be able to edit and share code. While the functionality is still technically there, I believe that it has been significantly reduced and doesn't look the most appealing.

    Please enhance the code editing functionality so that people (especially programmers and developers) have more of a reason to use OneDrive. I know that I would personally love if this feature was enhanced.

  6. Microsoft OneDrive

    Microsoft OneDrive: Will you please ask your developers to make a decision or not in weather or not if there are interested in creating a app that would bring a windows desktop environment that would be under Azure`, but for us it will be free because it would be a add-on for OneDrive and that would be the Desktop app that would have to be under Menu. Or Just create a option whare customer can create there own Virtual Machine under Create File drop down menu on the OneDrive page.

  7. Notifications

    Is it possible that you could create notifications for One Drive because usually I work with my friend on my OneDrive account and it would make it easier if I knew when an upload is made and I was notified then I could respond quickly, instead of checking every 20 minutes in the day.

    Kinda regards Raies

  9. Why can't I retrieve my password directly?

    Why can't I retrieve my password directly?
    The account applied for yesterday, the password can not be logged in, the account and password can not be directly retrieved! When you retrieve your account, you can fill in the subject of sending emails and receiving emails, but you have not sent emails. You only received a few emails from Amazon. There is no email subject, and you can't submit your questions! Why can't I retrieve my password directly? !
    It is recommended to restore the right to retrieve the password!

  10. 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. Provide the ability to add OneDrive files and folders to Chrome OS through the Files app

    The OneDrive app does not provide the ability to show OneDrive files and folders in the Files app. Users can only see local files and Google Drive files, which makes moving, copying, etc. difficult between cloud services.

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. SKIP files for upload

    Should have an option to skip files that are 'waiting' to be uploaded. Such a simple idea...should be done already really Microsoft.
