  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  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. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. You cant combine storage

    It is absurd that you buy 6 Tb in Microsoft Familly and you can only use 1 Tb. In Google Drive and iCloud if you buy 6 Tb you can use 6 Tb. Not at Microsoft. Multiple emails are required and you cannot combine storage. Each day I get more disappointed with Microsoft's services.

  11. Renaming Folders or Files

    Request ability to rename folders or files using some, most, or all of the existing folder name or filename.

    When a user selects “Rename This Folder” or “Rename This File,” the current name is grayed out (current characters are unavailable for reuse during renaming). Users must re-enter some, most, or all characters of an existing folder or filename when wanting to change just one letter, number, or special character within the folder or filename.

    Currently, we recognize that we are able to set the access restrictions on the personal One Drive from the Sync Client in [Group Policy Configuration]. In addition to this function, I would like to add a function that can restrict the accessibility from Sync Client.

    Also, it would be great that if the feature will be enabled to apply the access restrictions to the all personal OneDrive all at once regardless…

    Even if you disable the "Outlook on the Web", the icon will continue to be displayed on the Sharing screen and can not be removed. Since clicking on the icon results in an error, it makes the user confused.

    Therefore, I hope the feature will be implemented that allows disabling/removing the Outlook icon from the screen properly. Thank you for your consideration.

  16. Create a two Factor Authentication for your OneDrive. This way, someone using your computer would need your phone to access your OneDrive.

    I have the same problem others have. I have multiple people using my PC at work and at home, and I have no privacy with my OneDrive files. Anyone using my PC can look at my private files on OneDrive. What if you had the option to turn on Two Factor Authentication on OneDrive? This way if you wanted to turn it on, whoever tries to access your OneDrive files, would need your phone... or access to your Microsoft Authenticator app. This would solve the problem with password protected file requests that I see many people asking for. It would…
