    I request that the sync folders'characters should not be corrpted in case of sharing with [Shared with Me] of SharePoint document library and OneDrive for Business under the conditions below. I hope that I will be able to open the files properly.

  2. Regarding the "OneDrive" item of the Office client

    When following the path “File” – “Save as” – “OneDrive” – “Sign in” on the Office Client, it is not possible to log in to Office 365, even when correctly inputting the account information. That`s inconvenient. I`d like to be actually able to log in from that screen.

  3. Improve the feature to download the items only in the sync folder for the shared users.

    For security protection, I hope the feature will be implemented that the shared users can be downloaded the items to only the sync folder. I do not want them to download the items outside of the sync folder.

    Therefore, I hope the feature will be implemented the shared users is allowed to download the items in the sync folder only as soon as possible.

  5. define precisely [Active User].

    I have a comment on Office365 admin center's [Report] – [Usage]. In case of checking the usage of OneDrive for Business, I would say that
    the definition of [Active User] is unclear, and therefore I hope the public information about the [Report] to be useful enough to understandin what situation an user would be counted or whether the date is Japanese standard time.

    特にExchange Online、SharePoint Online、OneDrive for Business 等は、アクセスできないことでビジネスに致命的な遅れが生じる場合があります。

  7. Sync Document Libraries from On Premise SharePoint to macOS

    Was hoping the new client for Mac would support this feature, since you stated the Windows and Mac versions of OneDrive for Business would follow eachother feature wise. In regards to clicking the "Sync" button on a On Premise SharePoint site, this still isn't the case.

    This feature works on Windows.

    PLEASE fix this. We are utilizing 3 party services like dropbox, box and services a like, just to be able to share files and documents between Mac and Windows users.

  10. Enhance providing the update information about the details of the event caused or the influence for the users.

    I would like to get know the update information about the details of the event caused or the influence for the users. Before, the screen could display only 100 items apparently, it was not even appearing to scroll down the screen.

I am assuming the Update was running on Office 365 server side at the time.

    Change the default folder color from black or give us the option to change the default folder color. Some of our users are complaining they are visually challenged and are unable to see the folder.
