  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  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. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Move files or email them without downloading

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

  10. 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.

  11. Be aware of the behavior that the first inputted letter is not reflected on the display when editing in Excel Online.

    I would like to inform you that the function does not work properly when editing files saved in OneDrive for Business on Excel Online. Specifically, when editing Excel files saved in OneDrive for Business, the first letter (two letters will be in Japanese) input is not reflected in the cell, if the user input "DA" but Excel Online only recognized "A".

    It only occurred by using the Google Chrome browser. So, It may cause of the Google Chrome problem but I hope the function to be improved correctly working as soon as possible.

  12. ACTUALLY Enable long file path for OneDrive for Business

    This is a repost of https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/13697118-enable-long-file-path-for-onedrive-for-business

    because Jason Moore marked the previous suggestion as "BOOM IT's DONE" .... but he linked to an article that DOES NOT reference long file paths at all!... so everything indicates that it's NOT done...

  13. 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).

  14. Onedrive is creating duplicate files every time the user connects back to the internet. How can this be avoided?

    The Onedrive sync client has been installed and synced the files. When the user goes offline and edits some documents and comes back online, the sync is happening but creating new files with the name of the machine appended to the file names. This is really annoying as the folders are shared and synced with several users and every time a user comes online with a updated file its creating a new file instead of merging the changes

  15. OneDrive Auto Save Tab for Business Accounts

    Could you please provide an Auto Save tab for OneDrive business accounts. I have a PC that is my business only PC, but I do not get the Auto Save tab, like I do with a personal account. I do not want to save anything on my local drive!

  16. Allow obtaining a log of access to the folders without accessing the files.

    I am planning to share the folder with external users in near future, but for security protection, I hope the feature will be able to get the logs that enable seeing which folder has been accessed includes the name of users and accessed time. Thank you for your continued support.

  17. Accept special characters in filenames.

    Some of my clients use #'s and other characters in their filenames, which causes that the files are not synced (i.e. the whole idea of access from different places is non-existent) and I'm getting sync errors continuously. OneDrive waits for my response, but I'm not allowed to change clients filename structure. Thus, the OneDrive is super annoying.

  18. implement the feature that could enable to upload automatically a screenshot.

    I hope the feature to be implemented that could enable to upload automatically the screenshot available and acquired in the private One Drive since it is convenient if I could use the feature even within One Drive for Business keeping the large capability for saving.

  19. OneDrive desktop version to mirror cloud, not the other way around! Example: Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud, and every other major cloud

    OneDrive desktop version should not take up computer storage i.e. it should only mirror the cloud documents, not the other way around.

    Examples: Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud, and every other major cloud storage provider.

  20. improve the setting feature that could cause the delay in reflecting the details of its setting once modified via Office 365 admin center.

    I am aware the the occasional delay occurs until the modified setting is applied when making a change for the setting through Office 365 admin center, and therefore I hope the feature to be improved so that it could reflect the modified details of the setting.
