    OneDrive for Business 上のアイテムに付与されたアクセス権限を一覧で確認する方法。

    Provide the feature to confirm access permissions granted to items on OneDrive for Business in a list
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business 上のアイテムに付与されたアクセス権限を確認する場合、現時点では一つずつアイテムを選択しアクセス権限を確認する方法のため、一括でアイテムの共有権限を確認する、または csv ファイル名などの出力で確認する機能の実装をお願いいたします。

    Currently, we have to check each item on OneDrive for Business one by one to confirms the access permissions granted to those items, and it is very inconvenient.

    In order to reduce time and effort, we hope the feature will be provided to confirm all the access permissions granted to items at once or export them in CSV files.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  2. Drag and drop - ability to lock

    One really annoying thing with scrolling for folders In onedrive is that one your phone and you are swiping to scroll down sometimes folders drag and drop into other folders.

    Is there any feature on the cards to “lock folder” or turn off drag and drop?

    This is mainly when using on a phone

  3. display custom column onedrive modern view

    right now when a new custom column is added to OneDrive, it would show up at classic view, but not in modern. It would be great if this could show up in modern view as well. see more info at https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/columns-in-new-one-drive/d09b934b-3f0c-42b7-ae64-4cf883bd78ae

  7. When there is a file saved in a OneDrive folder, I would like the ability to select a file on my desktop to replace it as the next version.

    If I have a file saved to a OneDrive Folder, I'd like to be able to select a file from my desktop to replace it as the next version of that file. For Example, I have a file named File.doc in a folder. Someone emails me File v2.doc. I would like to be able to right click on the File.doc and add new version by clicking on File v2.doc without having to rename it. This is a feature of Box.com.

  8. Windows update causes

    Somehow (my IT company thinks was caused by a windows update) my onedrive lost the connection to my login information if it is setup to automatically sync. When prompted to enter in your login information to resolve the sync, you can only type in your e-mail address and the password box never pops up. Thus never allowing onedrive to ever login. Microsoft tech support and my IT company have tried troubleshooting this issue, and the only resolution is to turn the automatic sync off onedrive. Bummer... Hopefully the engineers can take a look this issue and see if there's a…

  10. Intune for Educaction with Known Folder move

    Intune for Education contains a Shared PC setting that prevents students from saving any data to Folders or desktop. We propose to change this setting and implement Known Folder Move as part of Shared PC settings. This way, students and teachers get normal UI but don't loose data if their profile gets deleted with logout

  13. Share Permissions

    There needs to be some further granularity on the permissions for sharing of files and folders.

    Currently it's either View or View, Edit, Delete

    Please add the abilty to View & Edit

    I can think of many of occasions where we are sharing data external to the company with vendors that we want them to be able to modify documents and upload them but not allow them to have the ability to delete items.

    Something like this should've already been in place - this is just a general access ability.
