          • 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.

                  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.

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.

                        • 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.

                                Currently the OneDrive File Picker is not working on Mobile Browsers.
                                Tested on WP8.1, IOS8.3 and Android 4.4.4.

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

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

                                Best Regards,

                                  • 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.

                                        • 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.

                                          My…
