    Provide the functionality to inherit the Sharing settings of the folders when you move or copy a folder.

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. sorting text

    all throughout every Microsoft app and desktop/mobile platforms, there should be sorting like there is in Microsoft word desktop app, and excel. word doesn't have it on mobile like the desktop app. excel has it on mobile but you cant have multiple instances of sorting in a sheet. powerpoint doesn't have it at all. OneNote allows you to sort tables but that is not enough, we also need to sort simple lists or text boxes.

    please bring sorting of all forms of text throughout office platforms both mobile and desktop/web apps.

  7. 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.

  8. Find unsynced files using OneDrive

    The issue is, I had been using onedrive on my work computer for a long time. Without knowing that all my files then were never synced to the server! Now that I have to use a new computer, I logged out my onedrive from the old device and logged in to the new one. Thats when the nightmare begins. To realise that many of my files were missing.

    I went on to check on onedrive web and saw that they werent there either. That's when I realised in the first place, the files weren't synced at all. Tried many ways…

  9. Disable creating the Document folder in the file list of OneDrive by default settings.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):OneDrive のファイル一覧に自動で作成されるドキュメントフォルダを作成させない

    Disable creating the Document folder in the file list of OneDrive by default settings.


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive のファイル一覧にドキュメントフォルダが自動で作成され、削除しても再作成されてしまうため、ドキュメントフォルダを作成させないような方法​を提供して欲しい。

    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.

  11. 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/

  12. Create link to OneDrive app

    Here is my usage scenario: I have a PDF file in my OneDrive, and it's marked to be stored for offline usage inside the OneDrive app on my Windows Phone.

    What I want is to paste a link to my OneNote, and tapping this link opens the file directly using the OneDrive app.

    Something like a onedrive:// URI schema.

  15. 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.

  16. IFTTT ingredient to allow unique (and non-static) filenames

    The OneDrive service on IFTTT is great, and it allows users to use OneDrive with hundreds of other services. However, one BIG limitation is that OneDrive provides no way for the user to make sure the file has a unique name (and therefore doesn't overwrite a file that has potentially been created the same way previously). All this would take would be a UNIX timestamp ingredient for the IFTTT service. Many other services does this, and it would open the door for so many more things to use OneDrive with/for on IFTTT.

    I for example use OneDrive as one of…

  17. enhance list children of driveItem request to support custom sequence specified by the user

    enhance list children of driveItem request to support custom sequence specified by the user.

    Currently

    GET /drives/{drive-id}/items/{item-id}/children

    request always returns items sorted by name and there is no way to retrieve items in the order user specified it on OneDrive.com.

    sortBy: sequence option available/supported here

  18. Include MediaServiceAutoTags and MediaServiceOCR Fields to Public API

    I saw new fields MediaServiceAutoTags and MediaServiceOCR in Documents returned by SharePoint and OneDrive APIs.
    These props don't exist on "old" sites, created few months ago, but only for new ones.
    As I understand, the fields contain tags, or keywords, for the document based on its content. And might be used by developers to implement auto-tagging apps, more relevant search results, etc.
    Currently these fields "should be treated as internal".
    So, the proposal is to make them public.

    If there is an item with the same name, an error will occur when trying to restore the items from [Recycle Bin]. In addition, the details of the error will not indicate in the content (For instance, "Due to there is an item with a duplicate name." else) so that the users don't know why the items cannot be restored so far.

  20. One Drive Updates Tutorial

    It would be great if the engineering team introduce a video in teaching all users regarding the latest updates of OneDrive, which would allow all users to use it easily and etc.

    Lastly, it will be great, if OneDrive could implement a system in place for Sync of all files in the One Drive folder if it is being stored on an SSD external drive, to be displayed that all files have been sync successfully to the One Drive server and that the format of the SSD could allow all customers to set the settings of the format of the…
