    • Allow substituting a drive letter for the OneDrive for business folder(s).

      We have a database that uses drive letters for folders. Using the "subst" command will do just that, substitute a drive letter for the long OneDrive path. However, this creates the folder "System Volume Information" - a hidden, read-only system folder that crashes OneDrive every time! Make OneDrive ignore system files! Allow a drive letter substitution for the long OneDrive path!

      • 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.

              • implement the feature enabling to restrict internal file share.

                *English follows Japanese

                ■内容: OneDrive for Business において、テナント内のユーザー間のファイルの共有を制限したい。社内のユーザー間であっても、安易に共有が行われてしまうことによって漏洩のリスクが高まります。管理者によってい制御ができるよう、テナント内のユーザー同士のファイル共有を制限する機能を要望します。
                -----
                I am thinking of sharing the files among the users of OneDrive for Business's tenant. At this moment, there is a possibility that the data leak might be caused by a simple share even within company user, and therefore I hope the feature to be available that could enable to make a limit on the file share among the users of a tenant so that an admin could execute the restriction for shared files.

                • 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.

                    • 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.

                        2. Even if the anonymous guest link expires and the user cannot view it, [Sharing] status displays as [Sharing in progress].

                        • 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.

                          • Disable Files On demand by default

                            Files on demand would have been a great idea 10-15 years ago when disks were small. Now that 1TB and larger disks are commonplace even in lower end laptops, this is just a horrible option. I've found myself forgetting when moving from one device to another to turn this junk off and when I find myself in a place with terrible or non-existent Internet I don't have all my files despite having hundreds of GB free on my disks. At the very least, I should be able to disable this quack feature in 365 globally so when I login it's…

                            • To be able to schedule syncing time.

                              To be able to schedule syncing time.
                              Currently, I can stop syncing for few hours. But, I have to do it daily.
                              There must be an option where I can schedule “stop sync”.
                              Example: Do not Sync from 6PM to 10AM daily.
                              I don’t want my home wifi to consume bandwidth.

                              • 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.

                                • add to my onedrive business the ability to add a share folder to your onedrive.

                                  It's aboslutely ridiculous this feature exists for your personal one drive, but not the business onedrive. People are more likely to share and access folders regularly with a business onedrive account. In general I think the whole onedrive set up is not very user friendly as it is. It's clunky and not very smooth. There are constant needs to sign in and out, and you have to always store links to shared files rather than just accessing the file from your own one drive. Silly.

                                  • File modified date changes automatically even if the file is just opened and closed without any modification

                                    In Office 2016, there is an issue with the file's modified date with files that are saved locally on a user's system but synced with their One drive.
                                    Even if a user opens up an excel file and just closes it without making any changes or without saving any changes, excel automatically changes the Date modified to the current date and time when it is opened. This creates problem in tracking the file based on their last modified date.
                                    Pls restore back the earlier version when the Date modified would change only on saving them and not otherwise.

                                    • 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 files or email them without downloading

                                        When moving files between one drive accounts or attaching to email you need to download to device - why. Use the cloud.

                                        • but I'm not a guest contributor - provide link to login

                                          When a colleague (within same corporate onedrive contract) sends me a file to edit, I open the link to find that I'm guest contributor. This prevents me from editing. So, why not

                                          Have a link to log-in to onedrive from the "guest contributor" state (e.g. if from a browser that doesn't auto log me in).
