    • 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.

      • 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!!

          • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      King Regards

                      • 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,

                        • 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.

                          • 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…

                            • Send alerts when a shared folder has been adjusted/updated.

                              I think with shared folders/documents alerts should be sent to all it is shred with when changes have been made. We share a calendar so everyone can see what up coming events are taking place. If an adjustment is made no one knows unless they check the calendar everyday. An alert would be much better!!

                                  • provide an easy way to sync multiple document libraries at once

                                    Compared to the intial configuration wizard provided by SharePoint Workspace, OneDrive for Business (and SharePoint) are lacking a user-friendly way to sync all document libraries of a SharePoint Site at once.

                                    Currently the user has to click through each document library of a site when starting to build up the sync-connections. There should be an better way to do that: Like a single Hyperlink e.g. "sync this site". Clicking this link will give the user the Chance to select the document libraries he wants to sync with OneDrive for Business.

                                      • Disable OneDrive for Business via Group Membership in Office 365

                                        Provide options to Office365 admins to disable ODB access for specific users via Group Membership. Currently its very difficult to disable ODB for new users & existing users.

                                        • I suggest you may deliver a generic ADMX/ADML template

                                          You delivered a non-generic ADMX/ADML template with the necessity to manually add non-generic information like the tenant id and OneDrive Folder Default path.
                                          This breaks up with the design principle of a template, which has to be generic. The non-generic Information is added via gpedit.
                                          If you have a look at the policy "Site to Zone Assignment List" within inetres.admx, you can see that it is possible since Vista to create templates, where you then are able to insert the non-generic Information with gpedit and thus the policy creates the Sub key structure within the registry.
