  4. Alert administrator ...

    Alert admin whenever any OneDrive sync client within the organization stops syncing.

    OneDrive is so unreliable it cannot be trusted to be running. I spend hours each week verify OneDrive is running on all our clients.

  9. have the ability to upload to shared with me folder from other apps

    I cannot upload to a folder that has been shared with me from other apps. For example, in ms word and adobe reader, I am not presented the option to upload to a shared folder. I am only able to upload to my personal folder or a sharepoint site. What's the point of having a shared folder if I can't even upload to it.

  10. Sync files in smaller batches

    Sync files in smaller batches.
    I have notices that there is performance degradation when trying to sync a large amount of changes, in my case more than 100k of individual files/changes.
    Would it be possible to find x amount of changes, sync those and then look for further changes?
    As it stands now it spends hours finding changes and then gets ready to sync some files, but never actually syncs the changes because of the degraded performance.

  13. Send a notification email to the creator of a link the first time it's used by the recipient

    When we send an anonymous link to a customer, we don't know if they've clicked it and downloaded the file or not.

    We send links to customers from our Box accounts and find it's really useful to know when they've used the link to read what we sent them, so that we can follow it up at the appropriate time instead of bothering them before they've had chance to access the link.

    This functionality should be really easy to add... it's literally keeping track of whether this is the first visit to the link and firing off a quick email…

    It would be nice to copy/save the files exchanged between users (includes OneDrive for Business My site users sharing the files) on Teams private chat to the area users can't operate.

    If you could add the feature to save the files exchanged between users where only global admin can access, it would be much appreciated.

  15. No option for free up space

    Downloaded one drive from my school's office 365 online hub. Tried to link one drive account and it started to download all files, without any option for freeing up space either in settings, or windows explorer itself. Had to uninstall OneDrive, then reinstall from onedrive.live.com and then the option was available. Major problem for people who use the app to have data on cloud, not all offline. :)

  16. Add the ability to have custom views for shared documents in OneDrive.

    This will allow OneDrive Users to organise documents that people have shared without needing to create a separate copy and storing it in your own folders. For reference, similar to the functionality to create views in SharePoint
