  1. To be able to schedule syncing time.

    To be able to schedule syncing time.
    Currently, I can stop syncing for few hours. But, I have to do it daily.
    There must be an option where I can schedule “stop sync”.
    Example: Do not Sync from 6PM to 10AM daily.
    I don’t want my home wifi to consume bandwidth.

  3. add to my onedrive business the ability to add a share folder to your onedrive.

    It's aboslutely ridiculous this feature exists for your personal one drive, but not the business onedrive. People are more likely to share and access folders regularly with a business onedrive account. In general I think the whole onedrive set up is not very user friendly as it is. It's clunky and not very smooth. There are constant needs to sign in and out, and you have to always store links to shared files rather than just accessing the file from your own one drive. Silly.

  4. Please add a easy way to turn off versioning in a specific folder.

    We use a autologging into a txt file this means evry second the txt File is added with several values per row.
    Today i found out that onedrive has versioning and saw tht the file normally 16 MB has a background size of several GB related to the versioning.

    So please add a simple setting to turn-off per folder the versioning.

    Thanks

  5. Make it easy to disable Office 365 group creation in One Drive

    The PowerShell to turn this off is extremely complicated and requires most companies a support call to assist them with it. This feature creates a site collection and is very powerful and should rarely be accessible by a standard user. Please put a setting on the OneDrive administration panel to turn off Office 365 group creation except for Global Administrators.

  6. Online Viewer Support for Autocad Files *.dwg

    Please add support for Autocad files.

    As a global production company we use a fair amount of 2D layouts in our projects. We have recently started using SharePoint Online and Onedrive for manageing and standardising Projects. While our office workers love working with supported documents in SharePoint, our engineers hates it. It's a very cumbersome task, to always download - upload every 2D layout in order to work with them.

    If we just could get a viewer it would be a good start enabling Autocad support and a great help to us.

  7. Move files or email them without downloading

    When moving files between one drive accounts or attaching to email you need to download to device - why. Use the cloud.

  8. provide me with the authorization while creating a "Share with everyone" folder.

    When I start to use the One Drive for Business within Power Shell, I enable the cmdlet in which the "Share with everyone" folder generates automatically and the authorization is given.

    The reference that I checked:
    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/6bb02c91-fd0b-42ba-9457-3921cb6dc5b2

    Although at this point, I am able to finish completing the creation of folder, I hope the behavior to be improved that enables to give authorization properly to me because I have no authorization that I am supposed to be given.

  9. Be aware of the behavior that the first inputted letter is not reflected on the display when editing in Excel Online.

    I would like to inform you that the function does not work properly when editing files saved in OneDrive for Business on Excel Online. Specifically, when editing Excel files saved in OneDrive for Business, the first letter (two letters will be in Japanese) input is not reflected in the cell, if the user input "DA" but Excel Online only recognized "A".

    It only occurred by using the Google Chrome browser. So, It may cause of the Google Chrome problem but I hope the function to be improved correctly working as soon as possible.

  10. but I'm not a guest contributor - provide link to login

    When a colleague (within same corporate onedrive contract) sends me a file to edit, I open the link to find that I'm guest contributor. This prevents me from editing. So, why not

    Have a link to log-in to onedrive from the "guest contributor" state (e.g. if from a browser that doesn't auto log me in).

  11. ACTUALLY Enable long file path for OneDrive for Business

    This is a repost of https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/13697118-enable-long-file-path-for-onedrive-for-business

    because Jason Moore marked the previous suggestion as "BOOM IT's DONE" .... but he linked to an article that DOES NOT reference long file paths at all!... so everything indicates that it's NOT done...

  12. OneDrive Auto Save Tab for Business Accounts

    Could you please provide an Auto Save tab for OneDrive business accounts. I have a PC that is my business only PC, but I do not get the Auto Save tab, like I do with a personal account. I do not want to save anything on my local drive!

  13. Allow obtaining a log of access to the folders without accessing the files.

    I am planning to share the folder with external users in near future, but for security protection, I hope the feature will be able to get the logs that enable seeing which folder has been accessed includes the name of users and accessed time. Thank you for your continued support.

  14. implement the feature that could enable to upload automatically a screenshot.

    I hope the feature to be implemented that could enable to upload automatically the screenshot available and acquired in the private One Drive since it is convenient if I could use the feature even within One Drive for Business keeping the large capability for saving.

  15. OneDrive desktop version to mirror cloud, not the other way around! Example: Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud, and every other major cloud

    OneDrive desktop version should not take up computer storage i.e. it should only mirror the cloud documents, not the other way around.

    Examples: Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud, and every other major cloud storage provider.

  16. improve the setting feature that could cause the delay in reflecting the details of its setting once modified via Office 365 admin center.

    I am aware the the occasional delay occurs until the modified setting is applied when making a change for the setting through Office 365 admin center, and therefore I hope the feature to be improved so that it could reflect the modified details of the setting.

  17. enable me to check OneDrive for Business's zip compressed items directly via a browser.

    ■件名 :OneDrive for Business 上のzip圧縮アイテムを直接ブラウザーから確認したい
    ■内容:OneDrive for Business 上にアップロードされたzip圧縮アイテムをブラウザーから確認する場合、一度ローカルにダウンロードされる動作となり、直接確認が行えない。ブラウザー上で直接閲覧、プレビュー表示できるよう追加要望です。また、モバイル端末でもブラウザー上から直後閲覧できるように併せて追加要望です。

    I am currently unable to confirm the zip compressed items once uploaded into OneDrive for Business directly through the browser due to the behavior prompting me to download the items into local. Therefore, I hope the additional feature to be available that could enable to use the preview display. Additionally, I hope that I will be able to view the items on the browser along with a mobile device.

  19. Regarding time zone settings of personal site

    I would like a function that allows administrators to either batch-set the time zones of individual user's personal sites or to synchronize the site time zone with the location information in the user profile. We have a lot of users who aren`t overly knowledgeable about computers and thus our administrators are spending a lot of their time responding to related inquiries. There surely are a lot of companies who`s employees are usually all working in the same region, and so it`s quite inconvenient to have te time zone by default set to PST and every employee having to adjust their…

  20. Improve the feature of General Japanese description for SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business.

    I have difficulty understanding the Japanese description in SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business due to the machine translation is not accurately translating the words so far. For example, there are many places where the meaning of Japanese words are not clear when sharing data only to the specific users on OneDrive for Business although it's hard to get know the function/description, such as the part "Selecting [User listed on the destination line]".

    It may cause of the machine translation, but I hope the feature will be implemented enables providing the accurate translation to the Japanese display in the current…
