  1. Enforce PIN/Password on device when onedrive pro is synced

    When a user syncs business data on their phone or tablet, via the app, the app should ensure that the PIN/Password is activated on the device. Otherwise, if the device is lost, anyone can access the locally cached data, and potentially access confidential business files.

    This is a part of a broader mobile device management capability we are looking to deliver for businesses.

    Also as a side note – as a part of our most recent Android app update we enabled support for users to set up a PIN. Simply create a 4 digit code, and you can limit access to the app and your files.

  2. Show file names with spaces

    I am using the onedrive android app to connect to my onedrive for business. The synced folders only show any characters up until the first space in the folder name and nothing more after that...?

  3. calculate file/folder name length the same way SharePoint online does

    i believe SPO calculates folder/file names using a space = 1 character. onedrive for business sync app however calculates based on space = %20 = 3 characters. this results in *valid* files/folders from preventing the sync of the entire OD4B folder to a pc, even though there is nothing invalid.
    additionally, if this isn't fixed, you should return a full list of the offending files and perhaps offer to convert the space characters to _ or something to automatically resolve the issue.

  4. Fix the network access from a corporate environment

    Playing with OneDrive for Business now, and man is it clunky in a business environment!

    The URL list to get to Office 365 (and OneDrive for Business) is huge. And random: some .jp, some .uk, why? I have no resources in those countries (I'm in Australia).
    Worse, The URL list is the same as the consumer URL list. That's plain crazy!

    Many businesses (including ours) actively block those consumer URLS, as a way of blocking corporate staff from accessing private email and web resources. It's a data leakage and security thing. You know - as implemented in most Corporate environments.

  6. Update OneDrive for Business file size limit

    Update OneDrive for Business file size limit to be competitive

    Increase OneDrive for Business file size beyond the current cap of 15 GB/file.

  7. add folder to onedrive

    I would like to make a suggestion to make shared folder available locally on PC. Currently, the business user can only share a folder online, not able to make it locally available on the other person's PC (provided the other person is using Personal OneDrive). It would be great to see this possible.

  8. Can you add folders to the filter option?

    Can you add a feature to allow us to search by folder too? I'm starting to have problems connecting to files I loaded earlier into the ODFB. I can search and see the files but when I click to open the url fails with this message. It's like the files have disappeared.
    If you add the file sort by folder I can get to folder and get to the file.

  9. OneDrive Resyncing to Different Folder

    OneDrive has lost its blinking mind: All my Sharepoint library syncs suddenly disconnect and I have to re-sync. Only this time I'm never asked which folder to sync to so OneDrive starts over completely in a new folder it's never defaulted to in the past. OneDrive is so unstable, unreliable, and frustrating it's hard to believe this is a Microsoft product. Please put some serious effort into OneDrive as it's a promising platform that's insanely unpleasant to have as the linchpin to our business file system.

  13. Import photo tags from file

    I am importing photos containing tags but these are not visible in one drive. If effort was spent already to tag photos in another system, they should be imported.

  14. Browser scroll issue in OneDrive for Business

    各ブラウザー (Internet Explorer、Edge、Chrome、Firefox) で OneDrive for Business を新しいユーザー インターフェースで表示する際に、スクロールの問題が発生します。

    1. OneDrive for Business に Office などのファイルを 30 ~ 40 格納します。
    2. ページを再読み込みし、ページ下部のファイルのファイル名の左側の [○] をクリックし、チェックをいれます。
    3. ページを上部にスクロールします。

    <想定された動作>
    そのままページが上部にスクロールします。

    <発生している問題のある動作>
    チェックをいれたファイル (ページ下部) まで自動的にスクロールし、ページ上部の表示ができません。

    ・ ページを再読み込みすることで一時的に改善しますが、ファイルにチェックをいれると再度発生します。
    ・ 新しいユーザー インターフェースで発生し、従来のユーザー インターフェースでは発生しません。
    ・ 100 % 発生するわけではなく、何度かページを読み込みすると、発生したり、発生しなかったりします。

  16. Add name / note to file or folder shared with me - use case of a poor name from sender

    Often a sender will have a poor name for their file or folder. (example: 2016 Project) thus when I go back through my list of shared files it will be difficult to remember what that file is or what the one I was looking for was called - if you could add a personal note / name in addition to the actual name for items that are shared with you it would be helpful in remembering

  19. Office 365 health, readiness, and connectivity checks Fails to detect OD4B v16

    The "Office 365 health, readiness, and connectivity checks" Tool in the admin portal doesn't detect OD4B v16. I get errors showing up when I run a basic test.
