    • Permission user folders

      Good work!
      We are testing the synchronization between different dividends in SharePoint linked to user accounts.
      We have encountered an unnecessary problem.
      When a user has no permissions for a folder, it appears with a red cross and sync message appears.

      In the mobile app, the folders for which the user is not authorized does not appear, so it should be.
      When do you plan to fix this?

      • shared by me

        Could you add a menu "Shared by me" (similar as "Shared with me") in OneDrive web interface on the left side menu?

        More about the user need: on OneDrive, files and folder are shared "only you" by default but you can share files/folders hidden in folders or sub-folders which stay unshared. Over time it becomes very hard to see what you shared, thus having this page view of all files/folders "shared by me" would be very convenient for users...

        • Ability for OneDrive Admins to Flag Folders as "Do Not Sync"

          Ability for OneDrive Administrators to flag some folders in individual users cloud based OneDrive for Business libraries as “do not sync” so that the end-user cannot check them in the Next Gen Sync Client (NGSC) for synchronization to their local machine. The NGSC should honor that attribute and show the folder as “greyed out” – possibly with a hover over pop-up message stating that the folder cannot be synchronized locally because of IT policy.

          Options should be available for bulk application to all users OneDrive folders by specifying a folder name (or folder name pattern) to be flagged as non-synchronizable,…

          • Files on demand, automatic cleanup

            When using files on demand over time, OneDrive will start to sync a lot of files which after some time will become inactive. Today the user would have to right-click the OneDrive-folder and select Clean up in order to stop the sync of these files and delete the local files stored on the user's device.

            I propose a new optional feature. When files or folders have been inactive for a period of time (say 30 days) I would like OneDrive to automatically clean up, deleting the locally stored files and folders but still keeping them in the cloud.

            It should…

            • 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.

              • Improve the feature of synchronizing more than 100,000 items on a stable basis for OneDrive.

                I am aware of the behavior the restriction mentioned that the sync performance will possibly deteriorate when the stored items in the library exceed 100,000 items more. However, I need to operate this process frequently so that I wish the feature will be improved enables sync more than 100,000 items on a stable basis as soon as possible.

                Although I have concerns about if the synchronization is going to be impossible to proceed unexpectly, but so as MS described as "We are working on optimization of OneDrive to improve processing of many Libraries." below the Reference information.

                • Renable inheritance when removing limited users (remove users access from all files)

                  In OneDrive, on a Document Library, you can go to library permissions, show limited users and remove a limited user. This appears to recursively remove the user access on all child objects in the library. This is definitely useful in the scenario e.g., I want to completely remove Bob's access to all files. The downside though is that currently, even if the remove on child object effectively leaves the object without unique permissions inheritance is not re-enabled. It would be beneficial to add a check during this removal to renable inheritance where appropriate (i.e., file and nearest parent with unique…

                  • Standalone update for Onedrive Files-On-Demand

                    Firstly I want to thank all those involved in rolling out the Files-on-Demand feature for OneDrive it is exactly what our organization needed. I look forward to not having to straddle so many solutions just to cover our file sharing needs.

                    Unfortunately in order to get this feature all the computers in our organization need to be able to update to the Creators edition, we have a 99% windows 10 environment however some computers running windows 10 are not able to upgrade to this latest version because of some hardware incompatibilities.

                    If we as office 365 admins had access to…

                    • office file

                      Enable to possibility to download file shared with guest access, instead of open them directly in the browser. So use OneDrive also as file transfer, for example create a button just for transfer big files in order to allow recipient to download it. I think this feature would improve hugely the OneDrive usage specially in business. Currently we have to suggest some workaround to do it but this discourage our users to use it, it would be great to have a simple button that do it please. thanks

                      • Allow the user to set/select the languages for a sharing notification email when sending to the recipient by the setting.

                        Currently, I am aware of the behavior that the sharing notification is sent to the user automatically in the language of recipient's settings. I hope the language of the sharing notification email can be selected freely by the user who shared documents or folders.

                          Please increase the file upload limit from 15GB! With ever increasing file sizes from the media workflow, especially with 4K content, the 15GB limit can be quite a bummer at times!

                                  I am thinking of sharing the files among the users of OneDrive for Business's tenant. At this moment, there is a possibility that the data leak might be caused by a simple share even within company user, and therefore I hope the feature to be available that could enable to make a limit on the file share among the users of a tenant so that an admin could execute the restriction for shared files.

                                  • 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…

                                        • Enable sync client (NGSC) to allow editable syncing of document libraries with secondary versions turned on

                                          Comparable to the described problems in this post https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/17864110-enable-sync-client-to-allow-editable-synching-of-t the NGSC is not able to sync libraries (neither SharePoint nor O365-Groups), that have secondary versions turned on. The synced files are write protected and can’t be edited by library owners or other write-permitted users.
                                          This really restricts the possibilities in scenarios where companies use the secondary-versioning and publishing-to-full-version-feature to secure the presentation of content in document libraries and keep content-producers productive.
