  2. Prevent user from desynchronizing some folders

    It is recommended by Microsoft to redirect "Known folders" to OneDrive for Business.

    Source Microsoft: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Redirect-known-folders-to-OneDrive-for-Business-e1b3963c-7c6c-4694-9f2f-fb8005d9ef12?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

    Desynchronizing a folder on OneDrive also removes it from the computer. This behavior generates side effects when desynchronizing "System/Known folders" (ex: Desktop)

    Is there any plan for adding a GPO that could prevent users from desynchronizing some of their folders ?

  4. OneDrive for Business and Windows Terminal Servers

    I would like better integration with Windows Terminal Services. You have to create user rights in Office365 and Terminal Services if the files are housed in a drive other than C: on the terminal server. This is of course double work. The other option is to load OneDrive in the user profiles on the C:. This avoids the need to manage rights on the terminal server and only through Office365, but it saves the files multiple times and eats up space. There should be a way to control rights only through Office365 and save the file only once on the…

  6. Request for setting of automatic synchronization of OS standard folder

    For synchronization of OS standard folders like My Documents, Desktop etc., Please make it easy for administrator or user to set up. For example, it is very convenient if there is a method such as preparing a check box.
    Since I also confirmed that it is implemented in other cloud storage services like iCloud (function is limited but, iCloud can select the sync target by check box ), I'd like you to implement it on OD4B as well.

  7. Implement the function of the automatically uploading images to OneDrive for Business.

    I am assuming that the function of the uploading images automatically to OneDrive for Consumers is the available feature so far. I also hope this feature will be implemented enables automatic uploading photos taken by iPhone to OneDrive for Business directly.

    If you install the Office Online Extension for you're chromebook
    https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/office-online/ndjpnladcallmjemlbaebfadecfhkepb

    And you open a Word document on the web it opens in a webviewer Example:

    If you want to Save the file to you're business account with the Save to OneDrive button than you only can login with you're personal account. Please fix it, that you also can login with you're business account!

  10. 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!

  11. Change Default folder color in Onedrive

    Change the default folder color from black or give us the option to change the default folder color. Some of our users are complaining they are visually challenged and are unable to see the folder.

  12. 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.

  13. Add Embed features to One Drive for Business

    Schools are organizations with the most flexible and varied use of Office products. In many cases presentation of the products also occur on other platforms eg one note or websites or wikis or VLE/LMS platforms.

    Most school organizations with Office365 products also have a onedrive for business framework. To encourage teachers and students to share resources in an effective way we desperately need to ability to embed resources.

    visual learning is a hugely effective part of learning. Embedding powerpoints or mix files so that they play on a a different platform, embedding Wordfiles to make it easier to view without…

  14. Differential synchronization

    In the current OD4B specification, when updating the file in the folder to be synchronized, the updated file, not the difference, is fully synchronized, which leads to the tightness of the communication of the end user's NW by the communication of OD4B.
    In our recognition, only Word, Excel, PowerPoint files supports differential sync, if OD4B deal with files that created other applications as well, it will be very helpful.

  15. Allow us to share a folder via a guest link in OneDrive for Business

    Using Google Drive, Dropbox, and even OneDrive consumer I am able to share a folder (not just a file) with someone outside of my organization without requiring them to sign up for a Microsoft account. Not everyone has a Microsoft account and it seems inconsiderate (and unprofessional) to send a folder to a client that is then held ransom until they create a Microsoft account.

  16. Enable choosing an OneDrive folder where to save a file with "save as" option

    Today it is not possible to choose a folder within OneDrive for Business if you work online and want to save file. "Save as" saves file directly in root folder.

  17. Force SharePoint Online Folders to sync through OneDrive to clients via GPO

    Now that you allow users to Sync SharePoint Online Folders to OneDrive. You should make it so an admin (through GPO) can set a folder to sync to client machines. So if an admin wants to have files always available to the client they can be pushed through OneDrive and GPO.

  19. OneDrive for Business needs OneDrive for Teams!

    There needs to be a central file store for team based working using OneDrive technology not Sharepoint. Sharepoint is too clunky to configure, and is why some organisations use other cloud solutions for example DropBox.
