  3. OneDrive Restore

    OneDrive and SPOL restore capabilities should be similar. Options should indeed be:
    - restore selected files ( this function is available for OneDrive)
    - restore the full drive/site by overwriting the updated files ( this function is available for OneDrive)
    - restore the full drive/site without overwriting the updated files

    There may be many ways to do this, one option could be
    If a user choose to restore entire drive /site collection, user need ability to restore OneDrive site collection into a temporary space and retrieve contents. User should be able to remove that temporary space (since user own that…

  7. Set Onedrive so 'Files on Demand' can be enabled at initial setup to assist with mass deployment

    Currently at first setup, OneDrive syncs all files to the HDD before the ability to use 'Files on Demand' becomes available. Even when I set the registry key to force it prior to OneDrive installation it still pulled down my entire drive structure, even though the box was ticked. It was only after opening and closing that feature was enabled. If I am rolling out new machines in the hundreds, and everybody is syncing their one drive at the same time, this will cause network congestion.

    Currently, we are frequently using Anonymous access Links to share items with many External users. However, it is very inconvenient because the user who accesses from Anonymous access links cannot delete the file if the Anonymous user accidentally uploaded the file by mishaps.

  15. Mandatory Version Control is Wrong

    On May 21/18, we were notified that mandatory version control would be imposed on OneDrive subscribers. We were also told that we "should not see a significant increase" in cloud storage needs. Any other major cloud service that imposes version control does NOT count versioning towards the quota of space used by its subscribers. Only the current version is counted. It's wrong to impose version control and then count all versions towards our storage quota.

  16. Implement document boards, such as in Delve, but for private or shared use

    Allow files on OneDrive for Business to be tagged and gathered on boards, similar to Delve, and be able to share those boards if necessary. It would be great to be able gather files, OneNote notes and email attachments that are related to a task or subject I'm working on.

  17. Sync changes from Outlook to Onedrive

    The OneDrive for a business client can take any file and upload to the cloud but when it comes to PST it struggles. Wouldn't be great that you could sync a PST file and when you open it in Outlook modify something. Outlook notifies Onedrive the changes so it only uploads what has been modified and not the whole file. I understand there's a Online Archive for Office 365, but this is for this PST that cannot be attached to a mailbox. Like terminated users for example.

  19. 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…
