  1. 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.

  2. 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。

    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 -…

  3. 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 )

  4. 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.

  6. Camera Roll Backup

  7. 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....

  11. Thumbnails for images in OneDrive for Business

    In One Drive For business there is not the possibility to have a thumbnail preview of an image as it is in public OneDrive. This is a Great limitation from the User Experience Point of view.

  12. Improve the virus detection function

    Quoting customer:
    Currently, the virus detection function of SharePoint Online, including OneDrive for Business, only works for files of up to 25 MB. Files exceeding that size are not being scanned.
    Please improve the virus detection function, so that bigger files can also be scanned.

  13. Implement proper re-indexing to allow Onedrive to re-index local files and prevent entire library download

    It is absolutely absurd that this is the only sync engine that is still not intelligent enough when operations from moving the onedrive folder to reinstallation/repair to actually intelligently look at the existing file/folder structure that in many cases is exactly in sync. Instead, both Onedrive and Onedrive for Business INSIST on re-sync and re-downloading possibly hundreds of gigs of data when the correct data bit for bit was sitting right in front of it locally, already.

    This should not be that difficult since every other sync engine (dropbox, box, etc.) can re-sync a local folder without forcibly resyncing and…

  14. Save a bookmark to OneDrive

    In BOX I could create a new Bookmark and save it to OneDrive - where you click "new" and have choice of Word, Excel, a New folder, etc. It would be great to have this ability in OneDrive. I used it often to save links that are related to the files in my doc library.

  15. Automatically Manage OneDrive Sync Settings Across Multiple Devices For a user

    As it currently stands, if a user is using multiple devices (like a desktop and then a laptop for field work) and he uses OneDrive to sync his files to the cloud then the folders to be synced setting is not replicated across all his devices automatically.

    That is the user would have to set a new folder to be synced on his desktop and then open his laptop to do the same. This is tedious and unnecessary since he is logged in with the same account on all these client instances and their settings should automatically sync across all…

  16. Allow OneDrive to choose folders from your computer to sync without moving them inside the OneDrive location.

    Google Drive currently has this feature where you can select folders from your computer that will automatically be backed up to the cloud. With OneDrive you can only backup files that are inside the OneDrive directory. I really wish I could simply select which folders I want to backup without having to move them to another location.

  19. prevent child files & folders from inheriting the modified date from parent folder

    Currently if I rename a high level folder, all the subfolders and files in that parent folder change their modified date to the date I renamed the parent folder. This is extremely confusing. As soon as I move folders to reorganize or rename a folder, I lose the specific information on everything inside those folders. In my work I revisit files from year to year and need to know which files are from which year. This needs to behave like it does on a desktop with file explorer!

  20. One way sync, modify only sync

    When many users sync a sharepoint document library to their local machine, they have a copy of the synced document. Modifications to this copy get synced back by design.

    Even delete actions. You cannot prevent users from accidentially removing a synced folder on their system. Sometimes they forget to stop the sync before removing a folder, sometimes they are just not aware of the fact that a delete will get synced.

    As this action gets replicated to the sharepoint library, the documents are wiped everywhere, (including other people who are syncing the directory).

    It's a lot of administratove effort to…
