  2. Stop giving OneDrive more features than OneDrive Business.

    Why is it I need to download third party software or use other Microsoft office applications to complete simple tasks such as saving screenshots automatically or saving phone pictures automatically? Do you guys not think about stuff before you do it?

  3. Add a timer for the locking of a file

    That way if someone is away from the keyboard it just saves the document and unlocks it back to other people who want to edit the file.

  4. We have recently begun to use OneDrive for document collaboration but uncovered a major flaw, revision control is not enabled for all users.

    We have recently begun to use OneDrive for document collaboration but uncovered a major flaw, revision control is not enabled for all users by default. We have had users lose significant time and effort because previous versions of documents are not stored in OneDrive. It defeats the entire purpose of OneDrive collaboration. There is only one fix for this, and it is to visit each user individually and change their revision control settings. There is no Powershell or Admin function to turn this on for all users. A VERY SIGNIFICANT FAULT.

    Buenos días. Mi Onedrive de empresa (universidad) llevaba meses funcionando perfectamente, de manera que al encender el ordenador aparecía el cuadrado con mi dirección de correo y logo de la universidad, y sólo me pedía la contraseña. Identificaba rápido lo que hubiera añadido o cambiado en las últimas horas y sincronizaba. Pero después de las actualizaciones automáticas de Windows hacia mediados de marzo de 2018, en lugar de ese cuadro aparece el que te pide vincular una biblioteca y agregar una cuenta. Mi duda es la siguiente: si agrego la misma dirección de mail y la misma biblioteca que ya…

  8. Clean up files that are downloaded to the workstation

    The application cannot be installed on workstations that are not domain joined, however, during the installation process, a policy file is downloaded and saved on the file system. This policy file contains the user’s enterprise id, and various GUIDs.

  13. Make it clearer that the City/Skyscrapper logo is SharePoint Synced files

    I would like to add the word SharePoint at the end of the text displayed on the root folder of all synced SharePoint Document libraries in file explorer.

    We are finding users getting confused by the logo (a city/ skyscrapers) as well as which is SharePoint and which in OneDrive.

    The image should make it clear what we want to change.

    The fact that the OneDrive library says so at the start but the SharePoint one doesn't can throw some people off.

  14. Add Setting so that OneDrive only syncs depending on your location

    When syncing happens at home with VPN connection, it slows down my laptop noticeably, but in office with good network speed it is not an issue. Add a setting that utilizes the location information from Skype which allows end user to set it, for example, to Home(don't sync) and to Office(sync).

  16. 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…

  18. Don't show documents as shared when link has expired

    When a shared document link expires (and there are no other shares) would it not be more logical for the document to be shown as not shared? It's not you can go in and re-generate an expired link for another period. I have a folder where I put publically shared documents (usually screenshots) and I'd like to easily see which are really still shared. In the screenshot attached, those files dayed May 18 are really not shared.

  20. Extended logging in Onedrive

    We are using Onedrive as an entreprise. When documents are shared in Onedrive and people make changes to the document, I can only see the last person who made a change to the document.
    1) Is it possible to see a complete logging of people who opened the document?
    2) Is it possible to see a complete logging of people who did not only opened the document but who also made changes to it?

    If this is not possible at the moment, could this be integrated?
