  1. Provide the feature to be able to confirm the expiration date information of anonymous guest links on the screen (UI).

    For the ease of management, I would like to the status from the list on the screen(UI) when the anonymous guest link of the expiration date has met. Let me explain the current behaivor below.


    1. Select an item in OneDrive for Business, Set the expiration date of an anonymous guest link and sharing the data.

    2. Even if the anonymous guest link expires and the user cannot view it, [Sharing] status displays as [Sharing in progress].

    So that, I hope the function will be added that provides the status of each anonymous guest link on the interface whether the anonymous guest…

  2. Disable Files On demand by default

    Files on demand would have been a great idea 10-15 years ago when disks were small. Now that 1TB and larger disks are commonplace even in lower end laptops, this is just a horrible option. I've found myself forgetting when moving from one device to another to turn this junk off and when I find myself in a place with terrible or non-existent Internet I don't have all my files despite having hundreds of GB free on my disks. At the very least, I should be able to disable this quack feature in 365 globally so when I login it's…

  3. Bring to OneDrive Business option "Add to my OneDrive" only available only at personal OneDrive

    I want this feature in OneDrive for Business.
    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Add-and-sync-shared-folders-to-OneDrive-8a63cd47-1526-4cd8-bd09-ee3f9bfc1504?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US&fromAR=1

    When someone shares a folder and gives you edit permissions to it, add the shared folder to your own OneDrive to make it easier to edit and work with the folder and its contents. If you sync the folder to your Windows or Mac computers running the OneDrive app, you can work with the folder offline.

    Add a shared folder to your OneDrive

    Sign in to OneDrive on your browser.

    In the OneDrive navigation pane, under OneDrive, click Shared. Folders you can add to your OneDrive are marked Can edit.

  4. Ability to make the "People with existing access" default selection in "Copy link" dialogue.

    We would like to be able to use "Copy link" functionality or file sharing without messing the site permissions. There is currently no way for setting the default permission option to "People with existing access". Users need to change this every time they use the functionality.

  5. File modified date changes automatically even if the file is just opened and closed without any modification

    In Office 2016, there is an issue with the file's modified date with files that are saved locally on a user's system but synced with their One drive.
    Even if a user opens up an excel file and just closes it without making any changes or without saving any changes, excel automatically changes the Date modified to the current date and time when it is opened. This creates problem in tracking the file based on their last modified date.
    Pls restore back the earlier version when the Date modified would change only on saving them and not otherwise.

  6. Disable "Download" option from One Drive for Business" Office 365 web console.

    It would be grt if Microsoft can provide us an option where in we can disable Download option from One drive for business web console.

    Reason: We have some confendital data that our employees save in ODB. We have created a policy from ODB admin console which says that they can only activate ODB on a domain joined machines. but the web console is not protected. The user can go home and login to ODB web console and download the data. For the security purpose we want to disable the "Download" option from the web console.

  7. add to my onedrive business the ability to add a share folder to your onedrive.

    It's aboslutely ridiculous this feature exists for your personal one drive, but not the business onedrive. People are more likely to share and access folders regularly with a business onedrive account. In general I think the whole onedrive set up is not very user friendly as it is. It's clunky and not very smooth. There are constant needs to sign in and out, and you have to always store links to shared files rather than just accessing the file from your own one drive. Silly.

  12. Make it easy to disable Office 365 group creation in One Drive

    The PowerShell to turn this off is extremely complicated and requires most companies a support call to assist them with it. This feature creates a site collection and is very powerful and should rarely be accessible by a standard user. Please put a setting on the OneDrive administration panel to turn off Office 365 group creation except for Global Administrators.

  14. Please add a easy way to turn off versioning in a specific folder.

    We use a autologging into a txt file this means evry second the txt File is added with several values per row.
    Today i found out that onedrive has versioning and saw tht the file normally 16 MB has a background size of several GB related to the versioning.

    So please add a simple setting to turn-off per folder the versioning.

    Thanks

  15. improve the feature enabling to display the search result of user along with 2 characters in case of file sharing.

    ■内容: OneDrive for Business でファイルを共有する際に、ユーザー名を検索しようとすると3文字以上入力しないと候補として表示されません。日本人の苗字は 2 文字で構成されていることが多いため、苗字だけで検索できないのは不便です。検索候補を 2 文字の入力で表示するか、一覧から選択する機能を要望します。

    When I perform the share of OneDrive for Business file and search the user name, I am unable to show the search result unless I enter more than 3 characters. I feel it inconvenient if I could be unable to make any search for the user name with its Sir name because Japanese Sir name consists of two letters. Therefore, I hope the feature to be implemented that could enable me either to show a search selection along with two characters or to choose the…

  16. Online Viewer Support for Autocad Files *.dwg

    Please add support for Autocad files.

    As a global production company we use a fair amount of 2D layouts in our projects. We have recently started using SharePoint Online and Onedrive for manageing and standardising Projects. While our office workers love working with supported documents in SharePoint, our engineers hates it. It's a very cumbersome task, to always download - upload every 2D layout in order to work with them.

    If we just could get a viewer it would be a good start enabling Autocad support and a great help to us.

  17. but I'm not a guest contributor - provide link to login

    When a colleague (within same corporate onedrive contract) sends me a file to edit, I open the link to find that I'm guest contributor. This prevents me from editing. So, why not

    Have a link to log-in to onedrive from the "guest contributor" state (e.g. if from a browser that doesn't auto log me in).

    When moving files between one drive accounts or attaching to email you need to download to device - why. Use the cloud.

  19. provide me with the authorization while creating a "Share with everyone" folder.

    When I start to use the One Drive for Business within Power Shell, I enable the cmdlet in which the "Share with everyone" folder generates automatically and the authorization is given.

    The reference that I checked:
    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/6bb02c91-fd0b-42ba-9457-3921cb6dc5b2

    Although at this point, I am able to finish completing the creation of folder, I hope the behavior to be improved that enables to give authorization properly to me because I have no authorization that I am supposed to be given.
