  1. 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...

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

    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.

  5. 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

  6. 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!

  7. .PST File Blocking

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

  8. Sharing limitation

    I am using One Drive for business. Well when you are doing business you need to share files with people outside your business as well. One drive for business do not allow this! When i share a file, the other person has to sign in in order to download the file. Please make sharing to everyone available for the business version.

  9. 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!

  10. Sharing by right clicking

    I would like to be able to share a file by right clicking on it in Windows Explorer, like Dropbox and other file sharing tools do, rather than creating the sharing link via web.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Allow guest folder access for non-Microsoft accounts

    I would like to be able to share access to a folder so a guest (non-Microsoft account) user can access all the files within that folder.

    Similar to the way Dropbox allows guest folder/file access mentioned below. They also provide password or timed access to guests with Dropbox Pro/Business.

    REF: https://www.dropbox.com/en/help/20
    Q. Can I share files with non-Dropbox users?
    A. You can share files with anyone, even non-Dropbox users, by getting a link to any file or folder. Once you get the link, you can send it by email, Facebook, Twitter, instant message, social networks, wherever you want. You can…

    OneDrive lets you share files and folders using “anyone links” that are redeemable by anyone that has that link. They are easily forwarded and allow access without any additional process.

    In October, we announced secure external sharing for business users. This allows people to share without having people create a Microsoft account. This will allow sharing to a specific person in a way that the link isn’t forwarded to others.

  16. 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…

  18. Sharing Group Files with External Users

    We urgently need the ability to share folders or files that reside in Group Libraries with External Users. At the moment it is not permitted. Only folders or files within my personal OneDrive for Business library can be shared externally.

  19. Allow for uninstall of OneDrive for Business in Office 365

    For those of us with Office 365 business subscriptions, we would like the ability to NOT install the current OneDrive for Business Sync Client and we would like the ability to UNINSTALL the client as part of Office 365 setup. Stopping sync of folders and leaving the buggy program running is not an acceptable solution as one is only a click away from starting to sync with files on the web.

    The sync problems include the possibility of incorrect sync by the client and subsequent loss of data so until Microsoft have fixed the sync problem allow us to uninstall…
