  3. Allow documents from OneDrive to open in a new tab

    Seriously. Why won't it open in a new tab so I can still see my OneDrive and possibly open more than one document at a time from the Web interface?

    Seems like nothing in O365 wants to open in a new tab.

    It is really frustrating.

  5. Remove 'This is your OneDrive folder' when user don't have the option to change location

    We have disabled that the user can change location, but users still see the screen and the ‘change location’ link, they are just not able to click it, this confuses the user, and is not necessary. could you please remove it.

  6. implement the feature to show the proper preview of the ".msg”and “.eml”files once saved within One Drive for Business.

    When I show the preview of the file of“.msg”and “.eml once saved within One Drive for Business, all the Japanese letters(double-byte characters) in the files become garbled, and therefore I hope the feature to be implemented that enables to display the preview properly on the website.

  7. Allow distributing the items collectively to user's tenant in OneDrive for Business by the admin.

    For user's convenience, I hope that the admin will be able to distribute items collectively to users in One Tenant OneDrive for Business not only the sharing function. Additionally, It would be great if the admin could control the permission for "disable deleting or editing", then enable collectively distributing to the specific users as well. Thank you for your support.

  9. *#!king Allow ALL Folder Names inc *vti

    The fact I can't store web server files on Onedrive for Business because pf a ******* block of vti, _files, . and other folder names is remarkable. I was switching to Office 365 for Business and use Onedrive instead of Dropbox and now I find I can't because you're using such an idiotic system for ODFB - SharePoint - that restricts this.

    Why the ****, if I'm paying more for this service than the personal OneDrive version can this business version not support these files???

    You've had plenty of time to sort this since introducing OneDrive yet you haven't…

    I would notice you that "Shared with me" items continue to be displayed in another user's OneDrive for Business even over 30 days passed since the relevant user's account has been deleted. In order to organize the data, please implement the function that removes items from "Shared with me" as soon as the retention period is over of the deleted users.

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
