  1. OneDrive For Business and SharePoint Integration

    OneDrive For Business and SharePoint need to be tightly integrated to support the seemless transfer of content between the two environments to support good practice formal content management together with the dynamic collaborative power of OneDrive.

    Content should be able to be 'moved' from OneDrive to SharePoint so that duplicates are not created and the master content exists in one place only. Ideally, the 'Move to SharePoint' feature would provide an option to 'Leave a Link' in OneDrive to the newly created content in SharePoint.

    In order to better support ad-hoc collaboration on content that has been imported into SharePoint…

  2. change the sync icon to not cover file type visual recognition

    I use OneDrive for Business on my work laptop and Dropbox on my personal laptop. There has been something bugging me about OneDrive for awhile now and I think I can finally capture it visually. The following image contains two different images: the top image is what Dropbox looks like (credit: internet search - this is not my computer) and the bottom image is a screen capture from my work laptop (with all sensitive information removed).

    I am a very visually driven person and often sort data quickly by recognizing patterns but I have been having some difficulties doing this…

  3. Sync of SPO Doc Libraries from IE browser doesn't work with NGSC, Chrome does

    I have tested the new NGSC for months now and there are a few major issues causing us problems.


    1. Even with now supporting sync of SharePoint Online Document libraries, the experience is not working within Internet Explorer. When you click the "Sync" button from either classic or Modern UX you are prompted to "Sign In" the experience takes you to a page telling you to "connect your onedrive" which is already done as I have my actual OneDrive for Business files syncing (selectively). Google Chrome works perfect with Document Libraries from SharePoint Online (and allows selective sync) as well as…

  5. Enable Site level Sync

    We want sync button to be enabled at Site level rather than doclib level and the onedrive wizard can help us choose document libraries or folders specific to a site we want to sync with PC. For organizations like us where we have few 100's of sites created per division and department it would be tedious to choose each document library related to user and click on sync button . It would really serve us well if we have ability to sync at site level and can automatically sync 100's of sites per needs of each department.

  9. Add ability to hide users from 'Share with' functionality

    We sync users from on-premise AD to Azure for Office 365. In addition, we have cloud-only Global Administrator accounts that are not synced.

    We would like the ability to hide users from the 'Share With...' functionality in ODB/Office Online (the cloud only users for example). For example, the 'Hide user from address lists' from Exchange Online option could be respected. Right now, all tenant users show up in the search results, which can be confusing as the Global Administrator accounts get selected accidentally.

  10. Placeholders and sync only recent files

    For the first sync, I like placeholders but I can see the disadvantage of not having data when you need it.

    I think it would be good to have the option to download all the files that have been accessed/opened/written within the last *** days.

    That way, you can custom download the most important recent files(depending on overall size) AND have placeholders.

  13. Locking files

    Dear developers,

    I wonder if it is possible to create an option to lock an folder (or file) making it available (on line or even off line) only after inserting a password.

    It would be very useful protect some folder or files from undesirable or unauthorized access.

    Thank you,

    Rubens.

  14. Add Native Support for Living Images, Cinemagraph, Refous, Microsoft Blink, Lumia Moments, Rich Capture

    Lumia devices are well known for their ability to take incredible images. Innovative features such as Cinemagraph, Refocus, Lumia Moments, Rich Capture and Living Images allow to capture our special moments in new and engaging ways. The problem arises when we try and share these images. The recipient only gets the still image and not the innovate functionality that we have built into out device.
    The solution for this is to add native support for these innovative imaging features to OneDrive. Thus when I share an album with Living Images via OneDrive, all the recipients can experience the moment as…

  15. improve the appearance of the file name in the ZIP file so as to avoid the garbled double-byte Japanese characters.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■件名 :OneDrive for Business 上の ZIP ファイル内のファイル名を確認する時に 2バイト文字に対応できるようにして欲しい
    ■内容: どのブラウザを使用しても、OneDrive for Business 上にアップロードした ZIP ファイルの中身を開くと日本語である 2 バイト文字が文字化けしてしまいファイル名が確認できない。

    Mac にて圧縮したファイルについては文字化けしない事を確認できていますが、Windows にて圧縮したファイルについても文字化けしないように改善して欲しい。

    No matter which browsers I use, I am unable to check the file name due to its garbled double-byte Japanese characters when looking into the ZIP file once uploaded into OneDrive for Business. Using Mac OS, on the other hand, I can find the ZIP file ungarbled. Frankly, I prefer to check the file without any garbled characters along with Windows, so I hope the display style of file within Windows to be improved.

  16. Control of communication timing

    2) Control of communication timing
    Please make it possible for the administrator to change and manage the timing to execute the synchronization. (Example: once a day, once in several hours, on a daily basis etc.)
    This is to prevent situations where synchronization is carried out during cellular communication, which consumes traffic.

  17. Enable modifying the name for the synced folder displayed in Explorer.

    I am aware of the sync folder name displays as [OneDrive - Corporate name] in the side bar on the Explorer when Synchronization is performed between two user accounts within the same tenant so that the user cannot distinguish the contents unless opening the folder.

    Since the name of the synced folder cannot be changed, it is displayed as follows. (Regardless of changing name of the entire tenant.)
    1. [OneDrive - Corporate name]
    2. [OneDrive - Corporate name(1)]...

    We have a situation that using a single computer to separately use the multiple accounts (such as Personal OneDrive) , therefore I…

  18. Ordner offline verfügbar machen

    Hallo zusammen,
    ich würde mich super freuen, wenn man in der App neben einzelnen Dateien auch ganze Ordner verfügbar machen könnte. So kann ich, wenn ich z.B. im Flieger bin, komplett frei arbeiten und muss nicht jede Datei einzeln vorher herunterladen.

  19. shared music folder

    My cd collection is ripped to mp3. I use the Music folder and Groove streaming to listen to it on my devices. This folder is shared with my wife, son and my work live account. Groove for my work account, wife's account or sons account can't use this shared library. It appears in OneDrive clients fine and media player can use it but not Groove in Windows 10 or on mobile. I understand concerns over shares and legal aspect so limit number of people it's shared with like office home. Or only allow same users access ..

  20. Add Shared with me Folder to OneDrive

    Add the option to add a shared folder or file to your OneDrive for Business. I want to be able to organize shared files and folders with my content on OneDrive. This capability is available in Google Drive (https://support.google.com/drive/answer/2375057?hl=en) and should be available with OneDrive.
