  1. 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.

  2. 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, we`ve 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, it`s not very convenient and it would be preferable to be able to make confirmations without having to rely on work arounds.

  3. 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.)

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

    When I perform the share of OneDrive for Business file and search the user name, I am unable to show the search result unless I enter more than 3 characters. I feel it inconvenient if I could be unable to make any search for the user name with its Sir name because Japanese Sir name consists of two letters. Therefore, I hope the feature to be implemented that could enable me either to show a search selection along with two characters or to choose…

  8. 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…

  9. 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. add

    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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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!

  14. 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.

  15. 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 )

  16. 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.

  19. 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....
