  2. improve the appearance of the file name in the ZIP file so as to avoid the garbled double-byte Japanese characters.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■件名 :OneDrive for Business 上の ZIP ファイル内のファイル名を確認する時に 2バイト文字に対応できるようにして欲しい
    ■内容: どのブラウザを使用しても、OneDrive for Business 上にアップロードした ZIP ファイルの中身を開くと日本語である 2 バイト文字が文字化けしてしまいファイル名が確認できない。

    Mac にて圧縮したファイルについては文字化けしない事を確認できていますが、Windows にて圧縮したファイルについても文字化けしないように改善して欲しい。

    No matter which browsers I use, I am unable to check the file name due to its garbled double-byte Japanese characters when looking into the ZIP file once uploaded into OneDrive for Business. Using Mac OS, on the other hand, I can find the ZIP file ungarbled. Frankly, I prefer to check the file without any garbled characters along with Windows, so I hope the display style of file within Windows to be improved.

  3. Control of communication timing

    2) Control of communication timing
    Please make it possible for the administrator to change and manage the timing to execute the synchronization. (Example: once a day, once in several hours, on a daily basis etc.)
    This is to prevent situations where synchronization is carried out during cellular communication, which consumes traffic.

  4. Enable modifying the name for the synced folder displayed in Explorer.

    I am aware of the sync folder name displays as [OneDrive - Corporate name] in the side bar on the Explorer when Synchronization is performed between two user accounts within the same tenant so that the user cannot distinguish the contents unless opening the folder.

    Since the name of the synced folder cannot be changed, it is displayed as follows. (Regardless of changing name of the entire tenant.)
    1. [OneDrive - Corporate name]
    2. [OneDrive - Corporate name(1)]...

    We have a situation that using a single computer to separately use the multiple accounts (such as Personal OneDrive) , therefore I…

  5. Add Shared with me Folder to OneDrive

    Add the option to add a shared folder or file to your OneDrive for Business. I want to be able to organize shared files and folders with my content on OneDrive. This capability is available in Google Drive (https://support.google.com/drive/answer/2375057?hl=en) and should be available with OneDrive.

  7. Retitle or Rename File Should Not Break URL/Link

    If the filename changes, this should not break the URL. A user may have shared a link/URL to a file and then changed the filename.

    Please allow filenames to be changed and links to remaining working.

  9. Put in a print to printer button! Maybe as an option under "Print to PDF"

    I want to print my online powerpoint but there is not a print to printer button. I have to save to pdf or download the file and open it in powerpoint and then print it.

  10. Group Policy to Add SharePoint Sites

    SilentConfig is all very good, but I'd also like to be able to add SharePoint Online Libraries to appear automatically alongside the user's OneDrive for Business. A policy item that contains a list of URLs to SharePoint Libraries would do the trick. As SharePoint Libraries might be particularly large, it would make sense if such libraries defaulted to "Files on Demand"

    Of course, this should also be added to the OneDrive CSP that everyone is screaming out for!!

  12. Please add Preview for SVG files

    One Drive for Business and SharePoint Online fail to preview SVG files.
    This is a common format for web vector graphic files.

  14. Allow moving location of a synced folder

    This is a surprisingly high requested feature, but Microsoft has stepped on it in various ways causing many request tickets for the same thing to be created, some of them closed. Another example of them not caring what customers really want.

  15. Exclude some files by extension

    I'm using One Drive Ent. alone but with 3 computers.
    I'm using Visual Studio 2015 and .NET source code is stored in One Drive..
    Because I can switch from one computer to another, I cannot use a source control software (like SourceSafe).
    But at each build, all generated files are pushed to OneDrive.
    I don't really need to save .OBJ, .PDB files.

    So, a global file filter can be useful to save bandwidth.

  16. open with explorer

    Allow the old feature "Open With Explorer" in OneDrive for Business and Office 365 Group Files on the web.

    Syncing files through OneDrivefor Business app is not a good solution for many businesses.

  17. Office365 Groups Support

    Make OneDrive mobile apps a great alternative to DropBox Teams by adding Office365 Group Support! Would be good if I could see my Group files without having to use a PC or use mobile web browser.

  18. Provide "Available Offline" feature in OneDrive for business

    Surface tablets have less HDD space when compared to laptop or desktops. It would be good to have the "Available Offline" feature in OneDrive for business to help in freeing up some hard disk space.

    I can click a file(s) or folder, right click on them and select "Available Offline" to be available on OneDrive and free from Local system hard drive,

  19. Add Photos (All photos, albums, tags, places) feature

    I use OneDrive for Business as a consumer to be able to use my own domain and to have enough space for my photos and files.

    I would love the feature from consumer OneDrive to be able to press "Photos" and get an overview of all photos, albums, tags and places.

  20. Prioritise the syncing of SharePoint libraries using the NGSC

    As CTO, I introduced O365 to our company in 2011. I use OneDrive for my personal storage and OneDrive for Business for my work documents. I have promoted the use of SharePoint tirelessly in our company. But, OneDrive Team, this year you are losing my support. I have tried to hold back the spread of Dropbox with arguments about document security, acceptability to our clients, integration with our platform etc. It's been tough because Dropbox syncs to people's drives without errors, and SharePoint libraries don't. People who used ODFB prior to the NGSC got sync errors. A lot of sync…
