  1. Copy/move files/folders between OneDrive users online

    I want to move for example a folder with customer data from salesperson A to salesperson B directly without downloading and re-uploading the folder and its contents

  2. Local Disk Storage Limits

    Save our users from themselves.

    We desperately need a solution to limit how much data is synced to the local disk by the OneDrive Sync Client. In an Enterprise scenario, where it's beneficial to allow large amounts of storage in the cloud, there is often not enough local storage to accommodate a user's full data store. Selective sync doesn't satisfy organizational concerns about using up local disk space. Even files-on-demand is leaving a lot of trepidation at the management level. Users will typically just choose to sync everything without thinking of the consequences.

    I propose an enforceable policy (GPO or…

  3. Allow users to create folders or similar for OneDrive shared files/folders.

    I have over 300 shared files/folders which need categorisation, many users in the organisation are in a similar situation and the std filtering system is not good enough. Creating folders to group shares from multiple users would be extremely helpful.

  6. Specifiy folder Language per user

    As the default Language of a OneDrive Site is set by location of your tenant, all our OneDrive Sites have English as default language. That means that all Folders, which are created by default (like Attachments, Notebooks, etc.) are also displayed in English. Please make it possible to specifiy the OneDrive Defauld language or the language for those Folders for individual users, because not everyone in our company is capable of speaking English.

  7. Download /Upload prioritization in sync

    Allow the user to select which files should be transfered first in the sync.
    Another option would be that the sync tool analyze the files to be transfered and execute the folders and smaller ones first, so the sync is not locked on a big files for a long time.

  8. Sync client metadata / tagging

    I'd like to be able to sort by metadata used in sharepoint document libraries on the OneDrive Sync Client. Using metadata / termstore in browser has a lot of benefits, but this is all undone when syncing a library to your windows device via the sync client and receive a flat file structure.

  9. Improve the display of "edited by", "file size" and "shared with" after file editing

    Quoting Customer:

    After editing files, the items "edited by", "file size" and "shared with" remain blank for about 1 hour. Asking support about this, weve been told that this behavior also shows on other tennants. Please fix this asap. Since the last user to have edited a certain file can also be confirmed via "recent activity" in the "details" section, there is a viable work around available for the time being. However, its not very convenient and it would be preferable to be able to make confirmations without having to rely on work arounds.

  10. Camera Upload

    The description under camera upload indicates it will only upload camera pictures to the personal OneDrive account. It would be great if I could specify which OneDrive account it will sync to. I pay for my own Office 365 Business Essentials account and would like for my pictures to go to that OneDrive.

  11. Folder Download Link

    It's very simple: we need to send a bunch of files containted in a folder to our clients, or external collaborators.

    So, currently, we need to download that folder from OneDrive for Business to our on PC. Zip that folder, then use WeTransfer to send it to the client. You like that convenience of OneDrive for Business??
    Really neat uh?

    Now, how about you let people do what is absolutely obvious, logical and wha everyone would expect to be able to do? I.E. let people create a link for downloading an entire folder.

    Basic drop box does it, sugarsync does…

    In case the sentences containing of distinctive character style and size are mixed in one of the cells in Office file and if each of those sentences are recognized as distinctive within the same cell, I am aware that the fonts are automatically modified and consolidated into one font style when uploading them into OneDrive for Business and editing them with [Open in Excel Online] or clicking the cell. Furthermore, I am unable to set

  13. Improve the feature of General Japanese description for SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business.

    I have difficulty understanding the Japanese description in SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business due to the machine translation is not accurately translating the words so far. For example, there are many places where the meaning of Japanese words are not clear when sharing data only to the specific users on OneDrive for Business although it's hard to get know the function/description, such as the part "Selecting [User listed on the destination line]".

    It may cause of the machine translation, but I hope the feature will be implemented enables providing the accurate translation to the Japanese display in the current…

    The only way to determine the health of the current sync client is to view it manually. This does not allow for any type of monitoring. Users can easily have a broken sync client for days/weeks without realizing their content is not syncing which can eventually lead to data loss. Please provide a programmatic way to get health information of the sync client.

  17. Enable eliminating a limitation of the threshold of Office 365 side to enhance the convenience.

    I am aware of the behavior that If there are more than 5000 items being with a single folder, the progress operation is not normally performed. However, it is frequently happened to exceed 5000 items will be created due to the business operation. So that, I hope the feature will enable eliminating a limitation of the threshold of Office 365 side. (Provide availability to allow more than 5000 items can exist in the folder.)

  18. Finding content types

    From a user experience people moving from offline server based files to OneDrive we often get complaint about performance when saving files.

    Users get the message "Getting list of available content types and properties" The time difference between this and what they are used to when they save in the previous method using locally synchronized files and having file sync is very different.

    My question is why does this operation have to take place over the network back to O365?

    Its time consuming, happens every time and content types rarely change. The files are being saved locally and subsequently being…

  19. Make it possible for the Groove mobile app to play music stored on OneDrive for Business.

    It's currently only possible to stream music from the Groove mobile app by accessing music stored on OneDrive personal but NOT music stored on OneDrive for Business. I have a lot of music stored on the business version of OneDrive and it would be great to be able to play it from my mobile device!

  20. Simplify the OneDrive for Business install process

    The new sync client installer is crazy. To install you must first determine if your user has 1D consumer, if so set a registry entry. Then run install. Plus, when the install is complete it runs side-by-side with groove.exe and syncs the same content to two folders on the same PC. This needs to be addressed ASAP. The new client should use the same folder as GROOVE - this would at least prevent duplicate sync and the need for my users to go clean up the install process. I've got 8,000 users I want to deploy to.
