  1. Ability to edit offline files on iOS and Android

    Provide the same functionality that is available in Windows and MacOS sync clients that allows offline files to be edited. Curently read-only

    (NOTE: Files marked offline are read-only - you can edit the file only when you're online. If you edit the file offline, it saves as a new file, and does not change the original OneDrive file.)

  2. allow only OneDrive for Business users to select the Save in <OneDrive Organization Name>.

    In case I make [OneDrive] tile displayed, I am aware even the users prohibited to use OneDrive for Business are able to save them by choosing [Save in <OneDrive Organization Name>]. I would say that is against our business operation handling, and therefore I hope that only only OneDrive for Business users will be able to check Save in <OneDrive Organization Name>.

  4. Improve the recycle bin interface

    The recycle bin interface is incredibly primitive and really only useful if you need to recover a file or two that you've deleted very recently. If you're looking to restore something that was accidentally deleted a while back and not noticed, then it's very difficult as you have to scroll through many deleted files. For starters, there should be a search/filter by file name. For more complex tasks, the user interface as used by most backup solutions (like DPM) would be helpful, e.g. recover all files deleted from a specific folder.

  5. Support non-persistent environments by allowing OneDrive for Business folder to reside on a network drive

    Provide support for non-persistent environments by allowing OneDrive for Business folder to reside on a network drive. Since the C: drive does not persist after a user logs off, OneDrive must re-sync at every logon, increasing network traffic.

  6. Add the feature to be displayed the setting screen of the time zone when initial accessing to OneDrive for Business.

    I am aware of the behavior the intial OneDrive for Business displays the time zone is set to the Pacific Standard Time by default thus the user is required to open the setting screen and correct the time zone. I hope the feature will be implemented to display the setting screen of the time zone automatically when initial accessing to OneDrive for Business. Thank you for your support.

  8. Implement the Check-in/out function for the modern UI as well.

    I am aware of the Check-in/out function is available from the OneDrive screen in the classic experience, but it cannot be displayed in the modern UI. For increasing Usability, I hope the feature to be able to use the Check-in/out function for the modern UI as well. In addition, it would be great if the feature will add a function that disenables editing in the modern OneDrive screen due to prevent the unexpected document duplication occurs when collaborating on Excel Client as well.

    Here is the reference for Office365 features in March 2017.
    Title: "Excel collaborative editing, etc."

  9. Allow users to rename the synced folder in the new sync client of OneDrive for Business.

    Allow users to rename the synced folder in the new sync client of OneDrive for Business and also allow users to specify the location of the synced folder on their pc.

    This is required because the combination of the default name (One Drive - [company name] + default location (C:\Users[user name]\default synced folder name) generates a file path that is often too long so files cannot be synced.

    Keep in mind, that typically the files you want to sync are already under a file path - that you want to keep under the synced folder.

  10. Improve the display of "edited by", "file size" and "shared with" after file editing

    Quoting Customer:

    After editing files, the items "edited by", "file size" and "shared with" remain blank for about 1 hour. Asking support about this, weve been told that this behavior also shows on other tennants. Please fix this asap. Since the last user to have edited a certain file can also be confirmed via &quot;recent activity&quot; in the &quot;details&quot; section, there is a viable work around available for the time being. However, its not very convenient and it would be preferable to be able to make confirmations without having to rely on work arounds.

  11. Add the ability to sign out the sessions for a sign-in blocked user.

    Currently, I understand that if the Sign in Status is Blocked for the users then we will not be able to initiate the Sign Out option (under OneDrive) from all the devices for the users. Our security process is to disable AD accounts as soon as possible - that blocks the sign-in on O365. We would like to then sign them out of their devices. We have far more admins that could disable a termed user than can access O365 settings. We would like that second admin to be able to come along later and initiate the signout. Thanks for…

  13. Be aware of the inappropriate behavior happens for One Drive for Business.

    I am aware of the menu screen is displayed, but disappears, apparently when right-clicking on a document or folder. Please see the steps below,


    • Displayed OneDrive for Business via Internet Explorer, then right click on the document or folder

    • Although items [Sharing] [Get Link] [Download] [Delete] [Move] are displayed for a moment, but they are disappearing immediately on screen so that we cannot click them.

    Configuration:
    - Internet Explorer 11 with Windows10
    - Internet Explorer 11 with Windows8.1

    I hope the featutre will be implemented to fix this problem as soon as possible.

  14. implement the feature to set the defaulted percentage of StorageQuotaWarningLevel.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■件名 :個人用サイトの容量の警告を出す値 (StorageQuotaWarningLevel) について
    ■内容: 元は、OneDrive for Business の容量の 90 % で設定されていた個人用サイトの容量の警告を出す値 (StorageQuotaWarningLevel) が、OneDrive for Business の既定の容量を 5 TB に引き上げたところ、新たに作成される個人用サイトでは 5 TB の 97.5 % で作成される動作となった。

    警告を発するレベルを一定に設定するという運用をしているため、現時点では、ユーザーが新規に OneDrive for Business の利用を開始するたびに PowerShell で StorageQuotaWarningLevel を設定し直す必要がある。これが手間なので、既定の StorageQuotaWarningLevel のパーセンテージを設定する機能を実装してほしい。

    In case of checking the value of personal site storage, I experience the behavior that the StorageQuotaWarningLevel once set with 90% of OneDrive for Business storage is created as 97.5% of 5TB in a personal site newly created when the fixed storage rises up to 5TB. I would say that this causes us troubles because at this moment I need…

  15. Add ability to hide users from 'Share with' functionality

    We sync users from on-premise AD to Azure for Office 365. In addition, we have cloud-only Global Administrator accounts that are not synced.

    We would like the ability to hide users from the 'Share With...' functionality in ODB/Office Online (the cloud only users for example). For example, the 'Hide user from address lists' from Exchange Online option could be respected. Right now, all tenant users show up in the search results, which can be confusing as the Global Administrator accounts get selected accidentally.

  17. OneDrive Administrator role in O365 Admin Center

    Hi,
    In most of enterprise environments is due to complexity support of various services on O365 platform divided into separate support teams. (i.e. Exchange, Sharepoint teams)

    With OneDrive Admin Center available I would expect that new role is introduced in O365 Admin Center to enable possibility to grant access rights for specific people only to OneDrive Admin center.

    At moment you have to be Global Admin and this doesnt fit most of support models in place.

    ODB Admin group should have access thru provisioned mySites, view-only acces to Audit Logs for troubleshooting purposes, and of course possibility to modify OneDrive…

  18. improve the usage of the PC with little HDD storage.

    In case of limited PC's HDD space, the HDD storage capacity may be pressed by the usage of a sync client having the copied files in a PC.
    In the meantime, I also assume that it would take long time to open the files if I share them with a network drive due to the demerit such as the restriction of possible file copying storage capacity.
    Consequently, I hope the application to be developed that enables to get accessed the files in One Drive for Business without consuming the HDD storage of Windows 7 PC.

  19. Improve the virus detection function

    Quoting customer:
    Currently, the virus detection function of SharePoint Online, including OneDrive for Business, only works for files of up to 25 MB. Files exceeding that size are not being scanned.
    Please improve the virus detection function, so that bigger files can also be scanned.

  20. Fully support synchronisation of Sharepoint/O365 Document Libraries, including Checkout/Checkin

    While you can currently configure OneDrive to synchronise a Document Library which requires files to be checked out, this just gives you files and folders on your computer with the Read-only attribute set.

    If you open a file Word 2016 will tell you it's an offline file, and it failed to contact the server. If you ask Word to re-open the file online, you can then Checkout, save and Checkin the file.

    This extra step shouldn't be necessary, and you should be able to see Checkout status in Explorer and right-click to Checkout/Checkin
