  2. 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.

  3. Automatically Manage OneDrive Sync Settings Across Multiple Devices For a user

    As it currently stands, if a user is using multiple devices (like a desktop and then a laptop for field work) and he uses OneDrive to sync his files to the cloud then the folders to be synced setting is not replicated across all his devices automatically.

    That is the user would have to set a new folder to be synced on his desktop and then open his laptop to do the same. This is tedious and unnecessary since he is logged in with the same account on all these client instances and their settings should automatically sync across all…

  6. Real time file synchronization failure

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    同期フォルダーの更新の反映について

    Real time file synchronization failure
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    同期フォルダーの更新の反映がなかなかされず、1つ前のバージョンのファイルが開けてしまい、閉じると最新のバージョンに更新されることが頻繁に起きます。
    共同で編集する際に混乱を招くため、同期フォルダーの更新は即時され、かつ更新前のデータを開けない動作になるよう希望いたします。

    Often times, because real time synchronization fails, even after the updates are made to the files, older version file would open up, and it gets updated only once older version is closed.

    As this is something causing users confusion as they are working on collaborative editing, it is nice to see precise real time synchronization and prevent older version of the files gets opened up as well.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  10. Sharing UI Flow Update

    This suggestion is to update the UI/UX for sharing to be less confusing for users. When going through the process to share a file in OneDrive for Business, the blue "Send" button is enabled regardless of whether the user has added anyone's email addresses. This is also the case if the user picks "Everyone with existing access" then tries to hit "Send" with a message - assuming OneDrive will re-generate a message to everyone with existing access.
    To improve this, the "Send" button should only really be enabled (clickable) if the user has successfully added valid e-mail addresses when sharing…

    We confirmed that the setting of “Block syncing of specific file types” in OneDrive Admin Center blocks uploading files from Sync folder, but it does not block downloading files from the Cloud even when setting extensions.

    In order to improve security, I hope this behavior will be corrected to block downloading files from the Cloud as well under the condition above.

  17. Allow Administrators to flag a folder in individual users cloud based OneDrive for Business libraries as “un-shareable"

    Provide the ability for OneDrive Administrators to flag a folder in individual users cloud based OneDrive for Business libraries as “un-shareable” (protected) so that the end user would have to move the file to another folder before they could share it. This would enable our users to put sensitive (private) files on their OneDrive for Business without the worry if accidentally sharing it.

  19. Clean Deletion of User Profiles

    When deleting a user profile via System Properties, it will fail because the OneDrive - BusinessName folder can't be deleted. You then must manually delete the user profile folder. Update the logic behind the native profile deletion via Advance System Properties to compensate for the OneDrive - BusinessName folder and insure a clean profile deletion.
