  1. 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.

  3. Allow upload to shared folder without requring user to log in

    I am working on an app that lets a OneDrive user share a folder with others such that they may read and edit files already present and upload new files to this folder.

    So long as the other users are required to log in to their Microsoft accounts, this works fine, and non-logged in users can also read from the shared folder (although I have only figured out how to do that using the api.onedrive.com endpoint - not via graph.microsoft.com). Also, if I read the documentation correctly, only Office Online can let not logged in users edit shared documents.

  4. 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

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

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

    現在、アンドロイドで撮影した動画を OneDrive for Business にアップロードしているが、モダン UI で​再生ができない。ブラウザーは Internet Explorer を利用している。また、従来の UI では再生ができる。
    特殊なコーディングをした動画ではなく、一般的な端末で撮影した動画となるため、モダン UI でも再生できるようにしてほしい。

    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 the…

  6. Duplicate photos identification

    It would be great if we have an option to identify and delete duplicate photos. Sometimes same photos are uploaded from multiple devices.

  7. Prevent modified date change when uploading a custom thumbnail

    Our "Xara Online Designer" web application implements its own filepicker that presents a unified interface to the cloud providers we have integrated with our app (Google Drive, Dropbox and soon OneDrive).

    Our servers generate thumbnails for our custom (.xar) file format, ensuring our picker can display thumbnails for our custom file-type. However we want to send those thumbnail images back to OneDrive, so they appear within the OneDrive web application (https://onedrive.live.com). To do this we make use of OneDrive's REST thumbnail operations ("Upload a custom thumbnail on an item" i.e. the "PUT /drive/items/{item-id}/thumbnails/0/source/content" operation).

    Whilst this works correctly,…

  8. 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.

  9. Selecting backup folder

    It would be nice if we could select the folder we want to put our backup photos and videos into on onedrive. This would allow us to separate and better organise the backup data from multiple devices.

  10. Faster servers

    Despite having a bidirectional 250Mbps connection it still takes over 30 seconds to navigate to any part of a video streamed from the one drive, I could understand if the "free" users had to deal with that but I am actually paying for my 1TB of space and would expect my data delivery to have a very low latency and at a respectable transfer speed, I have no such issue when using other service such as google drive, I hope you can speed this up in the future, I would recommend the use of fast SSDs and an access algorithm…

  11. access from device or embedded system

    with IOT explosion, many small devices may need upload data/file to onedrive. With OAuth 2.0 flow, the consent screen is displayed in browser, which is not available in embedded Linux or small devices.

    Alternatives for browser authorization flow is needed. User can provide email; consent screen can be replaced by an email with a link to confirm authorization. Or a code user can input on a PC to confirm the authorization.

  12. Add SSH/FTP access as an option for easy file management between servers.

    For people who own servers this would be an ideal way to manage their files without having to wait hours and hours with the chance of the download failing or going corrupt while in the process.

  15. 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…

  17. Accounts

    You need a way to integrate/merge accounts. I accidentally created 2 separate accounts which I didn't mean to do and I've tried to copy files from one to another. I've tried emailing my files so I could upload them but when I sign out of one then sign into the other and go to email to upload it states, "Can not have more than one personal account" so I don't know what to do. Thanks for your help.

  18. Invalidate the deletion of the "Notebook" folder created automatically or to hide from the screen.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名): ノートブック フォルダーについて

    Invalidate the deletion of the "Notebook" folder created automatically or to hide from the screen.

    OneDrive for Business 上に、​OneNote Online の保存先としてノートブックというフォルダーが自動で作成されるが、自分で作成したものではないためユーザーが削除してしまい、ファイルが失われる事例もあると思う。そのため、このようなフォルダーは削除できない、または非表示にするような動作にしてほしい。

    Now, a folder named "Notebook" is automatically created on OneDrive for Business when saving OneNote Online files. However, since it is not a folder that the owners created by itself, they may accidentally delete them. Which means there is concern that OneNote files will be deleted unintentionally.

    Therefore, I hope the feature to be improved that enables to invalidate the deletion of the "Notebook" folder or to hide from the screen.

  19. Convert to PDF not applying correct regional formatting

    When and Excel document is converted to PDF, the engine does not take care of the original regional settings, so fields with date & numbers are formatted as US? or default?

    For example, a date in format dd/mm/yyyy like 16/05/2020 would be seen after converted to PDF as 05/16/20

    The same for dots and commas for numbers. 10.245,38€ in Excel will be converted to 10,245.38€ in the PDF document.

    Please we need a review for this! It should convert on the regional settings of the document, or, the regional settings of the M365 account!

  20. Make it easy to access frequently accessed folders from the browser.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):共有を受けたフォルダーで、頻繁にアクセスするフォルダーをブラウザー上の画面左側にクイックアクセス機能のように配置したい。

    Make it easy to access frequently accessed folders from the browser.


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business にブラウザーからアクセスした時に、[Share] > [Shared with me] 内に、共有を受けたアイテムが表示されます。
    しかしながら、共有を受けたフォルダーの数が増えると、頻繁にアクセスするフォルダーを探すのが困難になります。
    そのため、利用頻度の多い共有フォルダーを、OneDrive for Businessの画面左側にピン止めまたはクイックアクセスのような配置できる機能の追加を強く希望します。

    When you access OneDrive for Business from the browser, you will see the items that you shared in "Share"> "Shared with me" folder at present. However, the users gradually have a difficulty in finding folders that are frequently accessed as the number of shared folders increases .

    For this reason, we strongly hope to add a function that allows you to place shared folders that are frequently accessed as "Quick Access"…
