  1. 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…

    I am aware that the data in PC is generally designed to be saved within C drive. I am currently worrying about the possibility of PC performance degradation due to lack of storage capacity so I hope the feature to be implemented that enables to create One Drive for Business's (OneDrive.exe) sync folder within the partition excluding C drive or PC' housed drive.

  4. Sync client / Files On-Demand support for Windows 10 virtual desktops (VDI)

    In 2018 we will begin a 12 month deployment of Windows 10 + Office 365. 45,000 physical devices will be replaced and 15,000 devices will be turned into kiosks accessing virtual desktops. Would like to incorporate OneDrive into the personal data namespace, but you explicitly state there is no support for the sync client (and thus Files On-Demand) for virtual desktops (VDI), and that eliminates OneDrive usage for all since the user experience has to be identical across physical and virtual. If I can't do it for virtual then I can't do it for physical.

    Request explicit statement of support…

  5. Default external sharing e-mail confusing for end-users

    The default e-mail sent to an external user for sharing a document is confusing. The end-user needs to click the document name to be able to edit or open the document. This is OK, but the text directly below the document states:

    This is a mandatory service communication. To set your contact preferences for other communications, click here.

    Lots of end-users do click the link "Click here" and think this relates to the edit document proces. This is not the case, they navigate to an error page that states:

    Sorry, that didn't work

  6. Allow me to rename my onedrive folder name. The nomenclature "OneDrive - Your Company Name" is unnecessarily long

    The file path limit of 256 characters is very limiting and annoying in and of itself. It is crazy that the mandatory folder name for the OneDrive for business folder is "OneDrive - Your Business Name". For my business, this adds on almost 20 characters! I already have a cloud service and when I tried to drag my folders over, many files will not sync simply because of this long folder name. I am forced to go back and re-work my folder and file structure.

  7. Online Viewer Support for Autocad Files *.dwg

    Please add support for Autocad files.

    As a global production company we use a fair amount of 2D layouts in our projects. We have recently started using SharePoint Online and Onedrive for manageing and standardising Projects. While our office workers love working with supported documents in SharePoint, our engineers hates it. It's a very cumbersome task, to always download - upload every 2D layout in order to work with them.

    If we just could get a viewer it would be a good start enabling Autocad support and a great help to us.

  8. provide me with the authorization while creating a "Share with everyone" folder.

    When I start to use the One Drive for Business within Power Shell, I enable the cmdlet in which the "Share with everyone" folder generates automatically and the authorization is given.

    The reference that I checked:
    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/6bb02c91-fd0b-42ba-9457-3921cb6dc5b2

    Although at this point, I am able to finish completing the creation of folder, I hope the behavior to be improved that enables to give authorization properly to me because I have no authorization that I am supposed to be given.

  9. monitor sync

    i need to be able to get an alert or extract from an endpoint or login to the admin portal to know when there is sync problem. currently, the only way to know if there's a sync problem is from the user - and by the time the user tells me, it's too late. again, either a dashboard in the Admin portal that shows the sync errors or i need to be able to extract some event ID, log file or other from an endpoint to identify when there's a problem to schedule time to correct the issue - or…

  10. XML Export/Import of your current (filtered) document libraries

    More and more people have more than one device. I like to have an export/import XML Structure of the current filtered document libs folders. So then I'm able to import these configuration on another device without doing the time consuming filter job.

  11. Fix "a newer version is installed" and OneDrive failure to launch with version mismatch with roaming profiles

    Please fix compatibility issues with Roaming Profiles

    Scenario 1 – can’t install NGSC on a second computer after update

    The automatic update not only updates the OneDrive.exe in the local profile, but also the registry, which roams with the user. When the user logs onto a new computer and NGSC tries to run OneDriveSetup for the user, it sees the registry key and delivers a message saying a newer version is installed. By deleting HKCU\Software\Microsoft\OneDrive, NGSC will install.

    Scenario 2 – registry version mismatch between updated and non-updated OneDrive.exe when roaming

    If NGSC installs for the user on a second…

  12. implement the feature enabling to restrict internal file share.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■件名 : 内部ユーザー同士の共有を制限したい

    ■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.

  13. Managing deleted One Drive (Sharepoint Document) files

    We have multiple users connected one SharePoint site and we use this sites to share documents. Due to our operational requirements we need to keep our files in the desktop PC. Therefore all the users in the organization we keep our files in the PC using OneDrive client.

    The issue is when a file get deleted from one end its effecting all other users in the network by moving all the deleted files to their desktop recycle bin. Which creates huge space of deleted files and make all the users to clean their recycle bin quite often. (For us avg…

  15. Enterprise level management of OneDrive using GPO

    I suggest you make OneDrive more “enterprise ready”. We are in the planning stages for moving user documents to OneDrive but there are glaring limitations compared to using Windows based local shares. Here is a list of requirements if we were to seek out a 1:1 match for what we do now:


    1. Make all OneDrive settings controllable via GPO. Without it, deployment is a non-starter given the number of workstations that we need to visit.


    2. Use a folder redirection method to access OneDrive as the default. Sync should be secondary. This will solve a few problems. One is with shared…

  16. Fix "Shared with Me" 'Duplicates' in View

    In OneDrive for Business today the Shared with Me view is at times difficult to follow for some users and results in 'duplicate' entries.

    Here is the simple scenario for Users1 and Users2:

    In User2 Documents folder create the following simple structure where the names are self-describing:

    Documents\FolderSharedEditwithUser1

    Documents\FolderSharedEditwithUser1\FileOwnedByUser2SharedEditwithUser1

    Documents\FolderSharedEditwithUser1\FileOwnedByUser2SharedViewwithUser1

    After a while the Crawler will re-index the User1 Shared with Me view. In addition to showing the primary entry:

    FolderSharedEditwithUser1

  17. Prevent ODB users from emptying the second stage recycling bin

    My understanding is that when a document is deleted from a document library it goes into Trash for 93 days. After this 93 days documents get moved to the second stage recycling bin for a further 93 days. Therefore a deleted document is only truly deleted after 186 days (unless someone empties the recycling bin manually). The second stage recycling bin is only accessible by site collection administrators.

    This is all well and good but what about OneDrive for business recycling bins. They follow the same policy 93 + 93 days, but in this instance the user is a Site…

  18. Regarding time zone settings of personal site

    I would like a function that allows administrators to either batch-set the time zones of individual user's personal sites or to synchronize the site time zone with the location information in the user profile. We have a lot of users who arent overly knowledgeable about computers and thus our administrators are spending a lot of their time responding to related inquiries. There surely are a lot of companies whos employees are usually all working in the same region, and so it`s quite inconvenient to have te time zone by default set to PST and every employee having to…

  19. Allow OneDrive to sync to a folder that already exists

    This would be helpful in a corporate environment so that you could redirect your user folders to your OneDrive for business folder (Desktop / Documents / ETC) with GPO and have them sync their user files to the cloud automatically. Then in the case of a lost/Stolen and possibly Cryptolocked laptop you can retrieve the users files without effecting their ability to use them when not in the office.

    A previous version actually allowed for this to work, however the newest version (17.3.6381.0405) stops you from using a folder that already exists.

  20. Provide the ability to set an alert in OneDrive for Business from the Standard view (not the Classic OneDrive)

    Provide the ability to set an alert in OneDrive for Business from the Standard view (not the Classic OneDrive). Each folder or document should have the ability to have a “follow” or “alert” associated with it, without having to go to the “classic OneDrive”. Utilize a “right-mouse” button to allow for the “alert” or “follow” function.
