  1. 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…

  2. Local Disk Storage Limits

    Save our users from themselves.

    We desperately need a solution to limit how much data is synced to the local disk by the OneDrive Sync Client. In an Enterprise scenario, where it's beneficial to allow large amounts of storage in the cloud, there is often not enough local storage to accommodate a user's full data store. Selective sync doesn't satisfy organizational concerns about using up local disk space. Even files-on-demand is leaving a lot of trepidation at the management level. Users will typically just choose to sync everything without thinking of the consequences.

    I propose an enforceable policy (GPO or…

  3. OneDrive should work like any external backup. Automatically backup C-drive w/o duplicating itself on File Explorer adding to storage space.

    OneDrive should work like any external backup. Automatically backup C-drive w/o duplicating itself on File Explorer adding to storage space. If OneDrive does this already, the setting for this is not very intuitive.

  4. Provide the availability to change the second language setting of the site freely and the language setting on the user profile all at once.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):OneDrive for Business の言語設定をユーザー作成時に管理者が行う方法、およびサイトの第二言語の設定、ユーザープロファイル上の言語設定を管理者が一括で変更する機能を要望いたします。

    Provide the availability to change the second language setting of the site freely and the language setting on the user profile all at once.


    ■Description(内容):
    母国語のみがわかるユーザーの場合、言語の変更を行う場合にもテナントで設定している​​​​母国語以外の言語が読めないと設定変更が行えないため、OneDrive for Business の言語設定をユーザー作成時に管理者が行う方法、およびサイトの第二言語の設定、ユーザープロファイル上の言語設定を管理者が一括で変更する機能を要望いたします。​​​

    Currently, I am concerned that the users have a difficulty in changing the language settings due to they cannot understand other than their native languages in which set by tenant unit. So that, I hope the feature will be improved that allows the admin to individually select the language setting of OneDrive for Business in case of adding users.

    In addition to this, it…

  6. Onedrive photo edit

    There is no easy way to edit a photo, just like a simple rotate a photo on OneDrive, and then save it to the same file. This is really frustrating as it should be a simple process to manage photos, edit, and share them with onedrive, instead of having to upload it to another photo app, then edit, then save back to OneDrive. Really dumb way of handling large amount of photos.

    I can neither do this on my phone or my computer.

  7. Newly create files in OneDrive folders out of reach when on metered connection

    When I am on a metered connection, OneDrive pauses syncing, which is great in principle. One consequence of this, however, is that I can no longer new folders and files created by office applications in OneDrive folder. For example, if I create a new file or folder in Word or Excel, I cannot even find it with the File Explorer! The only way I can access it, for example to attach it to an e-mail, is through the office application concerned and by saving it in another spot, say, the desktop.
    This is a very annoying bug that makes OneDrive…

  13. 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.

  14. Provide the feature to be able to confirm the expiration date information of anonymous guest links on the screen (UI).

    For the ease of management, I would like to the status from the list on the screen(UI) when the anonymous guest link of the expiration date has met. Let me explain the current behaivor below.


    1. Select an item in OneDrive for Business, Set the expiration date of an anonymous guest link and sharing the data.

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

    So that, I hope the function will be added that provides the status of each anonymous guest link on the interface whether the anonymous guest…

  15. Cancel uploading files

    Hello iOS OneDrive Team,

    I would like to suggest a feature that I think could improve the functionality of the app. I experienced this when I am trying to upload multiple photos to my drive.

    Can you please include a cancel uploading files functionality? In this way, the user has the ability to cancel incorrect files that he/she wishes to upload. I can only see close button from the upload toaster beneath the app and when I tap it, it just dimisses. There was no way to cancel all photos being uploaded at the moment.

    Thank you!

  16. 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.

  18. 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…

  20. Videos no longer play in browsers

    Videos uploaded from an Android phone no longer open in browsers (Edge, IE11, Chrome). All my videos play fine using a desktop video player, but when uploaded to OneDrive there's just an error 'sorry, there was a problem loading the video.'

    This might have something to do with video formats, because it only affects videos taken with the Nokia 8 Android phone, where videos I've uploaded previously that worked no longer open in browsers, but videos taken with an old Windows phone (Nokia Lumia 925) still work fine. Both are mp4 though.
    There's a workaround in Chrome, by enabling 'load…
