    • KFM (Known Folder Move) needs more customer customization.

      I would like to add Favorites, Music, Videos to KFM and also have the option to put Documents in the root of OneDrive versus in a "Documents" folder in OneDrive.

          • Integrate Microsoft's SyncToy with OneDrive

            Microsofts's SyncToy has been a staple app for me in syncing files on my laptop hard drive to an external hard drive. It seems this software could be integrated into OneDrive so that those of us who want 100% certainty that our files saved to OneDrive (in the cloud) are also accessible when we are working offline (from our Laptop\PCs native hard drive).

            • Implement the function/option to hide the [+] icon which displayed on the left side screen of OneDrive for Business.

              I am aware that each user can create an Office 365 group by clicking the [+] icon which appears on the left side screen of OneDrive for Business. To prevent this, I carried out cmdlets to control from the Microsoft Planner, therefore Microsoft Teams also became unusable at the same time.

              Then I have been changing the settings to activate Teams, however, each user is still able to create Office 365 groups from their own OneDrive for Business screen.
              For the ease of management, I hope the feature will be implemented enables controlling to hide the [+] icon (to create…

              • Make Files.ReadWrite.AppFolder work with OneDrive for Business Accounts

                Our app requires the ability to insert files into users' OneDrive accounts. Currently it only works for personal OneDrive accounts and that prevents us from using this functionality at all.

                This has forced us to ask for more powerful permissions than we need.

                • Ability to make the "People with existing access" default selection in "Copy link" dialogue.

                  We would like to be able to use "Copy link" functionality or file sharing without messing the site permissions. There is currently no way for setting the default permission option to "People with existing access". Users need to change this every time they use the functionality.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • Move shared folders to my own one drive

                        At the moment, one drive does not allow folders shared with me to be moved or synced into my one drive. Because of this, all shared folders never sync into my desktop which makes workflow TERRIBLE. please make it possible to move shared folders around. Dropbox makes this very easy for businesses.

                        I find it very dumb that I have to download shared folders to then upload them into my own folder....

                          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.)

                          • 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.

                              • 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…

                                • OneDrive for Business - Support multiple OneDrive languages by default

                                  I work in a very large company. The default language of our tenant is set to FR.
                                  However, we have thousands of users in numerous countries.
                                  For now, when a user chooses to change his preferred language in O365, all user interfaces change to the choosen language BUT OneDrive.
                                  We determine that if we want the "OneDrive For Business" language to be changed, accordingly to the user language settings, we have to set additional languages from each user interface, and then modify every single user profil to use advanced language settings as desired...
                                  Just a mess!
                                  And imagine that we…

                                    Shared with me

                                    Under shared with me users can see all documents that are shared with that specific user.
                                    What if there is additional feature so user can organise all this shared stuff in to folders?
                                    What do you guys think about that ?

                                    Raf

                                      • Can't change the OD4B Locale language.

                                        Every user can't change the Locale language from Spanish (default) to English in our One Drive For Business personal profile.

                                        • Too many characters / File name too long

                                          In our office we are using (migrated from Alfresco to SharePoint) OneDrive for business it works fine, but we have serious problems with file names that are too long or containing to many characters. It makes me and my colleagues quite desperate since every week we have to check the problems and we have to shorten the names. This is extremely annoying and should be there anymore, its the year 2017 and we are storing more and more data.

                                          (Dropbox has not this issue, so they should be a way to fix this)
