  2. Make it easer to show all shared files

    Either make the "Shared" column sortable or highlight the shared files using a different color. It's currently a frustrating goose hunt trying to pin down and review files I have shared with others in a list of thousands of files.

  3. Allow obtaining a log of access to the folders without accessing the files.

    I am planning to share the folder with external users in near future, but for security protection, I hope the feature will be able to get the logs that enable seeing which folder has been accessed includes the name of users and accessed time. Thank you for your continued support.

  4. Add to Onedrive feature for Onedrive for Business

    With the Add to Onedrive feature for Personal accounts it adds another disparity with Onedrive for Business. This is an essential feature needed for true collaboration so that the shared folders can sync offline

  5. Folder Favourites and Starring/Colouring folders

    Having just moved from Google Drive to One Drive have noticed that there is no facility to "star" or make specified folders a favourite. This is a necessary feature particularly for efficiency if you need to drill down a number of levels to get to a folder. Another great feature is the ability to change the colours of folders - this is a great feature to define and group folders relating to a specified area. Great for differentiation between departments.

  6. Sharepoint Image Libraries need to Sync to OneDrive for Business

    In order to be a truly effective tool for our company, Sharepoint Image Libraries need to Sync with OneDrive for Business.

    We have several documents that need to be shared between our design and sales teams. Some of these are Design Orders, POs and Spread Sheets, but the largest majority of documents is made up of jpeg images of concept drawings.

    From the design team's side: We have OneDrive for Business because we need the concept drawings from all 6 designers Sync'd to our own machines at all times... This can be achieved by using Documents Library instead of an…

  7. Allow documents that you share to everyone to be embedded and viewed without authentication

    If you share a document in OneDrive for Business (SharePoint too) to the everyone group as read only, and then un-tick the box "Require sign-in" when you share it, you receive an error if you try and view the document if you are not logged in.

    I have attached a document outlining the procedure I am going through. This functionality is available in OneDrive Personal, but not through OneDrive for Business or SharePoint. Please look to add this as it would be very useful for teachers wishing to embed resources without having to get students to go through the login…

  8. improve the setting feature that could cause the delay in reflecting the details of its setting once modified via Office 365 admin center.

    I am aware the the occasional delay occurs until the modified setting is applied when making a change for the setting through Office 365 admin center, and therefore I hope the feature to be improved so that it could reflect the modified details of the setting.

  9. Remote wipe feature of onedrive for business

    I have searched this and very surprised this is not brought up more often,

    But remote wipe for shared files should be mandatory within and organisation.

    Scenario - Employee leave, had sync data on home machine.
    (this scenario is not at all out of the ordinary)

  10. Allow Webdav access

    The promise is not really true:

    "Any device, at any time

    [...] it works well on all your devices."

    Currently OneDrive does not work well on any of my devices.

    Webdav is a well supported protocol on nearly every internet attached device for file access over http(s). As stable apps are not available on all platforms please allow Webdav (or some other useful API) access so that users can access their files quickly and conveniently.

  12. Download folder or selected files

    Please make it possible simply to select several files within folder or complete folder to download it without any sync soft.
    Sometime user works on some remote pc and have no ability to install and configure any one drive sync.
    User jusr needs to select several files or folder and press download like in all other cliud file storage services.

  13. Enforce PIN/Password on device when onedrive pro is synced

    When a user syncs business data on their phone or tablet, via the app, the app should ensure that the PIN/Password is activated on the device. Otherwise, if the device is lost, anyone can access the locally cached data, and potentially access confidential business files.

    This is a part of a broader mobile device management capability we are looking to deliver for businesses.

    Also as a side note – as a part of our most recent Android app update we enabled support for users to set up a PIN. Simply create a 4 digit code, and you can limit access to the app and your files.

  14. Allow management of file types in One Drive for Business

    I think it would be nice to have the ability to allow or disallow certain file types in OneDrive for Business. I believe internal (Office 365) management would be more advantageous rather than going off the Microsoft "master list"

    I ran into this issue trying to upload the portable version of Google Chrome which uses .json files. It wasn't a huge issue, but the ability to allow or disallow extensions would be pretty nice.

  18. OneDrive desktop version to mirror cloud, not the other way around! Example: Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud, and every other major cloud

    OneDrive desktop version should not take up computer storage i.e. it should only mirror the cloud documents, not the other way around.

    Examples: Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud, and every other major cloud storage provider.

  19. I need to change default domain associated with Sharepoint/One-drive and apparently I cannot.

    The default domain associated with our One Drive for Business and the relates Sharepoint account is tied to an old company name that we no longer use. For legal reasons I need to change that domain from what it is presently, to a new one, as it uses our old company name. Anyhow - I've bene through several different tech support contacts and it appears that this cannot be changed at all -- it was set by our original account set-up process and therefore tied to us as is forever. I find this ludicicrous as everything else related to domains…

  20. Add the feature of the interface that the user is able to follow the documents directly by the button click in the modern UI.

    I am aware of the classic UI is able to follow the documents after clicking the [...] button at the bottom of the screen directly from the screen for OneDrive.
    . However, I am asuming there is no such a thing as the same function has implemented in the modern UI. It was a useful frequently function of the classic UI so that I hope the feature will be added the [...] button in the modern UI and the user will be able to follow the documents from it as well. Thank you.
