  1. OneDrive For Business Context Menu Sharing / Copy Link

    As already several times mentioned we (the customers) need the ability to share / copy a link to a folder or file within the context menu (right click on the folder or file).

    This is an attempt to summarize the others ideas and get this idea upvoted, so Microsoft actually implements our wish.

    Also mentioned in this idea: https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/11356212-give-us-onedrive-for-business-context-menu-options we are in desperate need of this and with this idea "splitted up" for only sharing / copy link.

    Below and idea of the context menu from myself / Implementation in the ribbon of Windows Explorer also good idea:

    We recently completed the rollout of the new sharing experience on Windows and Mac. Please make sure you’re running the OneDrive sync client and then open the context menu on a file or folder in OneDrive. You’ll see a new Share command there!

  2. Enable long file path for OneDrive for Business

    My 1GB of storage part of my Office 365 Business subscription is more or less useless because I get the "File name too long" issue with most of my files.

    The following request is now closed as completed but I have voted on it with OneDrive for Business in mind (and I'm sure a lot of other other users did!).
    https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/6325774-enable-long-file-paths-aka-file-name-too-long-p

    So, OneDrive for Business users, make your voice heard and vote for this!

  3. New sync client must support team sites

    Horrified to read this in the FAQ for the new sync client:

    "Our focus right now is exclusively on OneDrive for Business cloud sync. We’re still looking at our broader sync strategy for Team Sites and On Prem. The existing sync client for OneDrive for Business will continue to support sync in these solutions."

    Sync of team sites is very important. I know several businesses who only use the team site (because they want to share documents).

    If you still have to run the old, broken sync client for team sites this is a massive disappointment and means users…

  4. create anonymous guest links on the folder just like files in OD4B

    For files you can create anonymous guest links on the file and set it to be view/edit and require sign-in or not but you can't for a folder.

    In the consumer version of OneDrive you can do this on folders. Please make this available in OD4B. This is a huge missing feature that may cause us to go back to Dropbox.

    Thanks for the suggestion. You can now create anonymous links to folders in OneDrive and SharePoint. Admins can also control whether anonymous links are available to users within the tenant.

  5. OneDrive for Business - Implement shared folder syncing to desktop client

    We need the ability to sync folders that have been shared by another Onedrive for Business user with the desktop client. You just rolled this out for personal OneDrive, but it seems like it's more important for Onedrive for Business.

    Downloading multiple files is now available for OneDrive for Business and Sharepoint. Please make sure you have the latest experiences turned on. Thanks, everyone!

  7. Remove the limit (20,000) of files that can be stored in OneDrive for Business

    There is a hard limit of 20,000 files on top of the file size limit. Please remove the # of file limit.

  9. .PST File Blocking

    .PST file should not be allowed on OD4B. Must be blocked by default. It is an issue for large enterprise.

  10. Support for RAW/NEF/DNG photos (especially thumbnails)

    Onedrive.com supports RAW photo files, but the Onedrive for Business photo gallery doesn't.

    (the consumer product supports professional photo formats and the professional product only support consumer formats. Disappointing...)

  11. Remove (Hide) Files from "Shared with Me" view

    Allow removing/hiding files and folders from the OneDrive for Business "Shared with Me" view.

    Some shared files and folders are unwanted or obsolete , so it should be possible to remove/hide those.

  12. Folder selective sync with OneDrive for Business

    I am using OneDrive for Business on Windows 8.1 PC and have 1TB plan. Once I upload files to OneDrive I don't want to download them all.

    I want to be able select folders I want to sync so I don't need to download all files (1TB).
    Problem described in http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/sharepoint/en-US/7f3e9994-9ca3-4550-b82e-2bfe64eab692/folder-selective-sync-with-onedrive-for-business?forum=sharepointgeneral

  14. New Mac sync client - you do not see the "green check marks" or otherwise see a visual that your files are synced.

    Please add in some kind of visual indicator (green check marks) that the files are synced. One the Windows clients you have the visual which really helps.

    Our new release of the OneDrive Mac sync client now supports green check marks on files! You can enable this via the Extension in System Preferences when you get the latest update from the Mac App Store. This works whether you are syncing your personal OneDrive, or OneDrive for Business.

  15. shared by me

    Could you add a menu "Shared by me" (similar as "Shared with me") in OneDrive web interface on the left side menu?

    More about the user need: on OneDrive, files and folder are shared "only you" by default but you can share files/folders hidden in folders or sub-folders which stay unshared. Over time it becomes very hard to see what you shared, thus having this page view of all files/folders "shared by me" would be very convenient for users...

    Thanks for the suggestion. The deployment documentation is available below and it has links to many other documents including how to manage group policy.

    If there are specific additional documents you’d like to request, please create an new item for each of those and we’re happy to look into it.

  17. Making user-individual external sharing settings in OneDrive for Business

    I would want for you to make it possible to externally share contents on an individual user level when external sharing is disabled on the tenant level in OneDrive for Business.

    boom! it's done  ·  Eugene Lin responded

    OneDrive and SharePoint already support enabling external sharing for a subset of users in an Office 365 organization.

  18. SharePoint: Sync selected subfolders of shared folder

    I want sync only selected subfolders for shared or public folder.

    E.g. currently I can sync only whole tree shared by someone
    \SharePoint\User filder\Shared with Everyone\

    I want to sync only part of the tree - \SharePoint\User filder\Shared with Everyone\A\B\C

  19. Make it ease to copy files from OneDrive for Business to Group's documents folder

    When using OneDrive for Business in Office 365, it's easy to copy/move files to another folder within OneDrive using the web interface. Using the web interface it's impossible to copy/move files from the user's OD4B to an Office 365 Group documents folder directly. To copy or move a file from the OD4B to a group's document folder, you have to download the file from OD4B and upload it to the group's document folder, or sync the OD4B and the group's document folder and move/copy the file locally.

    My suggestion is to add the option to the web interface for the…

    This is now fully in production. Please make sure you have the latest user experience turned on and take a look!

  20. Allow syncing of Groups

    The file-sharing and collaboration aspect of OneDrive has to be priority #1.
    Without the ability to sync TeamSites the product is pretty much useless to most customers (I don't count ODfB cause it'
    s broken).

    It seems we will have to wait for that functionality for quite some time.
    So how about allowing us to sync Groups?

    I am willing to migrate all my current document libraries to groups if you provide the functionality to sync them with the new OneDrive client.
