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.
I support this very strongly!
Due to the fixed whitespaces in the name I cannot save my programming files to Onedrive Bussiness, which is problematic!
Pls fix this! Whitespaces are not workable. Folder names should be decided by the user and not by the designer that created the onedrive app.
It's also mess with many program since it has "space" inside folder name. I can't believe that we still have the same issue after 5 years of complain.
please improve this - impacts if folder and file names are long as well
Coming from office 2013 to office365 caused a GIANT headache for us. Suddenly 100's of files will not open because "file not found" error.
The file is there the path with the onedrive URL adds about 30 characters to everything and suddenly its too long.
Why is it even on 255 char limit in the first place!? Lots of info out there says it should support 400+characters.
It's already 2021 and you want us to stick to windows 98 limits?!

This is very annoying as anybody with a long company name can testify. Add to it, long user names and you hit filename limits quickly.
What would be nice is for an Admin to set an abbreviation that is used globally. Most companies with long or multi-word names will have a shortened or abbreviated name. e.g, International Business Machines. In the Org Settings in 365 Admin Center the Administrator would enter the ShortName: IBM..... for example

Please fix - similarly annoying.
Please fix this it is ridiculous. The whitespaces break most scripts.

I support this very strongly
I support this strongly, legal organization names usually ar long, but internally use a shorter name. A configuration field to specify organization name to appear in onedrive and sharepoint root folder is a must.
Fix this already good god
Really annoying, please fix.

I support this strongly. Having spaces in the folder name makes it almost unworkable in some systems.

I support this request strongly.
However, the vote-button is inactive
This was suggested more than 4 years ago and it has not been implemented. Very disappointed with Microsoft. The spaces in the folder name caused so many problems for my scripts and GIS programs. Please please fix this. Thanks!

I agree with this suggestion.

Is the fix for this to just not allow people to vote for it?

I cant vote, but I agree with this suggestion. I want to rename my OneDrive because using the default folder name as an input folder in my scripts doesn't work, because of the spaces in the name.
