  1. 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.

  2. 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…

Furthermore, I am unable to set

  4. 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.

  8. 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.)

  9. 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…

  10. 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!

  11. 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.

  12. OneDrive for Business の 10 TB を超える追加容量について

    (English follows Japanese)

    OneDrive for Business の容量が不足しているため、提示された手続に従って SharePoint Online サポート窓口に連絡し、増量申請を行いました。
    申請が通り容量が追加された旨の連絡が来ましたが、10 TB を超えた容量は、OneDrive for Business に対してではなく、SharePoint Online のサイト コレクション作成用の記憶域として提供されることになっている、とのこと。

    当方が希望しているものは「OneDrive for Business」の機能としての容量であり、「SharePointサイトの増量」を希望しているわけではありません。

    以下の公開情報においても明確に「OneDrive for Business に対する」容量を無制限に利用可能であることが明記されており、契約時にこの点を考慮した背景もあります。

    https://products.office.com/ja-jp/business/compare-more-office-365-for-business-plans

    Microsoft は 10 TB を超えた容量についても、OneDrive for Business に追加するという約束を実行する義務があります。

    Re: Additional storage quota exceeding 10 TB for OneDrive for Business

    Basing on the lack of storage quota, I've requested increase of my OneDrive for Business storage more than 10 TB to Microsoft Support with following determined procedures.
    The required storage was added, however, not to OneDrive for Business but to tenant storage for creating site collections.

    This is completely different from my requirement -…

  13. log

    Make it possible to see log in human readable format. Currently I get "OneDrive can't transfer files right now. Please try again tomorrow." I can find some log files under users/appdata/microsoft/onedrive but they seem to be in binary format and hence not very helpful for troubleshooting. It does not seem very efficient that I can only create a support ticket and send some binary log files and not trouble shoot myself.
    ( I am on the new sync client preview - 17.3.5979.1006 )

  14. Auto create a onedrive link when attachment is over the limit

    Email attachment via outlook desktop application or OWA, when a user attach a file over the limit, the application should auto move the file into onedrive and create a guest shared link for the recipient easily download it without creating a Microsoft account. When click on the guest share link, it should redirect to a webpage where the file expiry date, as well as a download button to get hold of the files.

  17. Bring back 'Alert Me' feature

    Once the ribbon was removed, this critical feature fell by the wayside - I need to be able to keep track of what documents have been changed in a group environment, or we are back to emailing each other about progress (and while we are at it...we may as well attach the latest version of the document) - this is 10 steps back....
