  1. 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…

    • 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.

      • Scan multiple pages to one item to upload

        The ability to Scan/photograph multiple pages to one item to upload would be a most useful feature!

              • 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.
                ***************
                ■Description(内容):
                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.

                • Please add provision to use dynamic redirect url for file picker

                  I have a web page on which query string values are used. These values change with every request that is made for this page, I want the return url to be exactly the same as it was before i made a call to OneDrive file picker. Currently the OAuth process clears out all the query string and demands a static url for redirection. It would be great if dynamic urls are supported as the process of picking a file can be a part of a work flow and redirecting it to some other page would break the work flow.

                  • Better cloudrail support

                    Awesome that onedrive is already part of cloudrail.com. But not all functions are supported. I use cloudrail for my integrations on android and would love to see the complete support of onedrive.

                      • Please add the OData $skip query option to allow for Random Access Data Virtualization support

                        Though the current server paging capability can support an incremental loading capability, this doesn't support at all the case of user quickly scrolling through their photos or data in a virtual list, because scrolling can be done so quickly that any incremental loading queue can get saturated.

                        Random access data virtualization is what is required to support the quick scrolling scenario. Unfortunately, it looks as if the SDK and the OneDrive API don't support the OData query options (namely $skip) which would enable that.

                        Hopefully $skip is in the near range plan, so that we'll be able to create awesome…

                        • Increase minimum Free Storage

                          With all the new phones having much bigger minimum storage, it would only make sense to stay up with the ever changing new technology and increase the minimum FREE storage.

                          • Implement support for downloading a number of bytes from the end of file using the HTTP Range header

                            At the moment OneDrive REST API supports partial download of files via the HTTP Range header. It's possible to download either
                            * a specified byte range via supplying "Range: bytes=5000-15000" header
                            * or everything from the specified byte position till the end of the file via "Range: bytes=5000-" header

                            But according to the RFC 7233 "Range Requests", conformant servers should also support downloading a specified number of bytes from the end of the file via a "Range: bytes=-5000" header.

                            At the moment this is not the case - OneDrive API always returns HTTP 200 with whole file content as response.

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

                                      I'd like to suggest adding a Private Folder that the owner can only access. Thanks
