    ​OneDrive for Business 上のデータを、共有設定を引き継いで保持したい。
    他のユーザーから共有された OneDrive for Business 上のフォルダーを、自身の OneDrive for Business へ移動、コピーした場合に、フォルダーの共有設定も引き継がれる機能を提供してほしい。

    We are considering to keep the data while inheriting the Share settings in OneDrive for Business.

    For instance, it will be very helpful that if the functionality to inherit the Share settings of the folders will be available when you move or copy a folder on OneDrive for Business shared by other users to the personal OneDrive.

    • allow users greater flexibility to download user files from One Drive onto device external SD mini card/Flash drive (OTG attached).

      Currently one only may download from One Drive for Android 6.0.1 onto the device internal storage. This requires a third party app to migrate files from internal storage to external SD card or other OTG-connected external memory (i.e., flash drive, etc.). As this issue has no doubt been forwarded to you countless times, as a developer myself I fail to understand the planned limitation herein described, within the current OneDrive code blocking users from full access to storage options.

      Please add this functionality ASAP! The favor of your reply will be most appreciated.

      Kind regards,

      Richard T. Rodolf, CTO

      • Offline folder button

        Please add an offline option for a folder. It really annoying selecting all files when I just want the whole folder available offline to use it when I am not close to a WiFi signal.

          • Offline

            Make everything, that one can have, available offline. So when connected to internet it syncs automatically and when you go offline tou csn be sure that everything is up to date. Just like on a computer.

              As a current behavior, we recognize that Document folders are automatically created in the file list of OneDrive. It is very inconvenient that the unnecessary folder will be recreated even if deleting once. Therefore, please provide the functionality to disable creating the Document folder by default settings.

              Thank you for your continued support.

                We are considering to save the storage capacity of the local PC as much as possible.
                However, now it takes time and effort to perform "Right clicking"> "For more storage space" operation after each editing with the File on Demand feature at present.

                Therefore, we hope you to add an option that enables [For more storage space] automatically after file editing.

                • One should have to give permission for a file/folder to be shared to their drive.

                  If I click a link on a link to a file merely to see what it is, it is automatically shared to my OneDrive. This is extremely annoying. I want to be able to actually give permission to that file/folder to be shared with me, if I accidentally click something wrong, I would want this option.

                      The Ondrive folder opens, but it is impossible to select a file.

                      Please allow the file selection to work on Mobile Browsers as well.

                        • Onedrive for Business API & Third Party Integration

                          It would be incredible if your OneDrive API were more flexible to allow a third-party firm management subscription to integrate with OneDrive as it does with Box and Dropbox. We need to be able to things like share, upload, download, etc. all from within the website's interface without need for additional windows or tabs.

                                • Speed of the app

                                  It takes 5-10 seconds for a normal size file (1mb to get deleted. This seems very archaic. When browsing, despite being on a high quality wifi connection, the pictures take ages to load. Everything about it is slow.

                                  I am only using the app because I got it with Office365, while I want to use it because it is a great app! Please fix this. Thank you.

                                    • Add support for Comments in the new API

                                      There is no API for comments, the old Live SDK had this. When will comments be added to the API?

                                      Example:
                                      https://api.onedrive.com/v1.0/drive/items/{item-id}/comments/
