  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. Show the details of the error contents appropriately when restoring items from [Recycle Bin].

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):[ごみ箱] から[復元] のエラー詳細がかるようにしてほしい。

    Show the details of the error contents appropriately when restoring items from [Recycle Bin].


    ■Description(内容):
    [ごみ箱] からアイテムを [復元] する際に、同名のアイテムがあるとエラーになる。
    ただし、エラー内容には同名のアイテムがあることが表示されない。
    なぜ復元できないかわからないことがある。
    同名のアイテムがあるため [復元] できないと、エラー内容の詳細を表示してほしい。​​

    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.

    Therefore, we hope the feature improvement that enables…

  6. 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…

  7. Support Mobile Browsers in OneDrive File Picker

    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,

  10. 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.

  11. OneDrive for SaaS products.

    We are developing an App where we want OneDrive type functionality.

    For example in a healthcare app we want to create a "onedrive" for the Patient, which the patient does not have access to, but is used by users to add documents etc to that patient's information. We want to leverage online viewing editing and control sharing etc.

    It would be great to be able to embed a OneDrive browser which was associated with the patient.

  13. Modify/Patch existing permissions with people to remove or to add

    Currently it is not possible to modify permissions for a OneDrive item if you want to add or remove people.
    When adding people, without an office account, to a document by sharing, they each get their own permission ID. People without an office account, however, they each get collected into one permission ID/link. This makes it impossible to remove just one person from the link, without having to remove everyones access!
    Being able to modify permissions, as you are already able to in OneDrive (See screenshot) via the graph api would be fantastic!

    We recognize that the Session Timeout occurs in case of the user did not operate for a certain period of time while the multiple users are editing cooperatively (Co-editing) in Excel Online.

  18. 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.
