  1. 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.

  2. Allow controlling the permission to share among the users in the organization.

    I am aware of that there is a function to restrict "external sharing" available on OneDrive for Business. However, I feel It is inconvenient that the simultaneous editing is becoming impossible due to forgetting to close the file. In addition, if the users have the permission for "browsing only" hence they are not able to open the file in Office of the client, but it is possible to print the "Print" contents when opening the file via the browser by now.

    Therefore, I hope the feature will improve enables controlling the permission to share among the users in the organization…

  3. Allow deleting the groups of Office 365 without Exchange Online contract.

    Currently, the user is able to create the groups of Office 365, then PowerShell cmdlet is required to delete the groups. I am aware the notice which I need to make a contract for Exchange Online, however, it does not make sense for me that I can not delete the groups without the contract.

    Therefore, I hope the feature will be implemented enables deleting the groups freely without the contract.

  4. Improve the Setting of the Chart Location for Sync files on OneDrive.

    I hope the setting of the Chart Location for Sync files on OneDrive will be available not only to the internal hard disk but also to an external hard disk or file server etc, when saving the Sync folders.

  5. Be aware of the behavior when deleting the folder in the sync folder on OneDrive for Business.

    I would like to inform you that the current behavior of deleting is not working properly. The appropriate behaivor is supposed to be that the data is not moving to the recycle bin on the computer when it is deleted by the command [Shift] + [Del], also the folder and contents are supposed to move into the recycle bin on OneDrive for Business.

    However, the corresponding folder still remains on OneDrive for Business in the state where it is released from the selection of the folder to be synced and the items are removed to the recycle bin so far.

  6. Remove or hide connected services from Word and Excel

    I wanted to remove some "save as" locations from Word and Excel. Currently shows 3 different cloud locations which come from OneDrive:
    - OneDrive - <company name>
    - Sites - <company name>
    - OneDrive personal

    Our users are only using one OneDrive location which is their OneDrive for Business folder, and it's too confusing for them to see 3 different cloud locations under "Save As". I wanted to keep only the OneDrive for Business, and followed by "This PC".
    I have read an article that shows that I could remove those connected services under File > Account menu option, but…

  7. be aware of the inconvenience of the updated Office365.

    I am frequently unable to use the feature previously available when it comes to the updates in the entire Office365. I hope the feature available at this moment to remain useful when updated because I feel inconvenient if I could be unable use the feature itself or if the method of setting could be complicated.

  8. Add Shared with me Folder to OneDrive

    Add the option to add a shared folder or file to your OneDrive for Business. I want to be able to organize shared files and folders with my content on OneDrive. This capability is available in Google Drive (https://support.google.com/drive/answer/2375057?hl=en) and should be available with OneDrive.

  10. improve the feature added into the Forms for Excel.

    I am aware that in case of setting the questions at the [Choice], an user seem to select them along with the radio button and I really hope the pull down to be available because we get used to its button within Excel survey. Additionally, I wish the features such as numerical value, date, time and Yes/No once used for our convenience on Excel survey to be implemented as well.

  11. Wishing the viewing of the classic Office 365 within One Drive for Business's modern UI

    I've found the location to show the Office 365 within One Drive for Business's modern UI changed into the site viewing. I feel it inconvenient if I experience this behavior because I have a difficulty in accessing the current files shared among Office 365 groups. I am also confused by this sudden issue because I'm not informed in advance of this behavior change within Message Center.So, I hope the public information about this change to be open in advance.

  12. Add the feature improvement to be disabled the display message of the confirm to delete the external user via PowerShell.

    Now I am considering to operate periodically deleting the external user information in the near future. In the meantime, a confirmation message "Do you want to perform this operation?" appears when processing “Remove-SPOExternalUser” so that the user is required to click [Y] to execute the operation via PowerShell Cmdlets. Due to the work process result in a reduction of the time, I hope the feature will be implemented enables deleting the user without displaying a confirmation message.

  13. Enable displaying the items of [Open Excel], [Open ExcelOnline] by using Mac OS.

    I am aware of the behavior of that the edit items on Office files saved in OneDrive for Business have not displayed for multiple browsers by using Mac OS. Specifically, the contents of [Open Excel], [Open ExcelOnline] are not shown on the screen when opening the file on OneDrive for Business from various browser along with Mac OS. There is a workaround to avoid this event, as like using Windows OS or returning to the classic display of OneDrive for Business, however, we have not solved this fundamental event yet. I assume it may cause of the impact of updating…

  15. Be aware of the error occurs that the search result cannot be displayed when selecting a security group as a share partner.

    In case I share the items within OneDrive for Business, I know that the suggested searches are normally displayed along with the 3 capital letters of goup name. If I input the security group name as the sharing partner, on the other hand, I found the error stating "Sorry, we're having trouble reaching the server". Although I am able to show if I would perform the sharing right after opening an another page or the suggested searches could be displayed if I would click the messsage once viewed on the screen, I have no idea of why this is happening…

  16. Please add Preview for SVG files

    One Drive for Business and SharePoint Online fail to preview SVG files.

  17. Edit Photo Tags on OneDrive for Business

    Support indicated that editing photo tags is only possible on standard OneDrive. Bringing it to the Business side too would be great for basic tagging of photos so no other solutions outside Office365 would be needed.

  18. Improve the feature that enables adding translation function for Excel Online as well.

    I assume that it's possible to translate sentences in documents in Word Online on OneDrive for Business at present. However, I cannot find the similar content [Translate] in Excel Online so far. It would be great if the function will be implemented to provide [Translate] content for Excel Online as well.
