  1. Notify User when item reshared inside the organization

    There's this Set-SPOTenant powershell Parameter NotifyOwnersWhenItemsReshared, but the User only gets notified when a document is shared with a user outside the organization. A Microsoft Support call also confirmed this to be working as designed". Please make it also possible to be notified when a document is shared internally, so the owner of the document always has a overview who has Access to a file without having to look it up by himself.

    • 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…

      • Update OneDrive for Business file size limit to be competitive

        Increase OneDrive for Business file size beyond the current cap of 15 GB/file.

        • Request for setting of automatic synchronization of OS standard folder

          For synchronization of OS standard folders like My Documents, Desktop etc., Please make it easy for administrator or user to set up. For example, it is very convenient if there is a method such as preparing a check box.
          Since I also confirmed that it is implemented in other cloud storage services like iCloud (function is limited but, iCloud can select the sync target by check box ), I'd like you to implement it on OD4B as well.

          • XML Export/Import of your current (filtered) document libraries

            More and more people have more than one device. I like to have an export/import XML Structure of the current filtered document libs folders. So then I'm able to import these configuration on another device without doing the time consuming filter job.

            • Differential synchronization

              In the current OD4B specification, when updating the file in the folder to be synchronized, the updated file, not the difference, is fully synchronized, which leads to the tightness of the communication of the end user's NW by the communication of OD4B.
              In our recognition, only Word, Excel, PowerPoint files supports differential sync, if OD4B deal with files that created other applications as well, it will be very helpful.

              • Control of communication timing

                2) Control of communication timing
                Please make it possible for the administrator to change and manage the timing to execute the synchronization. (Example: once a day, once in several hours, on a daily basis etc.)
                This is to prevent situations where synchronization is carried out during cellular communication, which consumes traffic.

                • Managing deleted One Drive (Sharepoint Document) files

                  We have multiple users connected one SharePoint site and we use this sites to share documents. Due to our operational requirements we need to keep our files in the desktop PC. Therefore all the users in the organization we keep our files in the PC using OneDrive client.

                  • 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…

                        • Additional information (apart from name) on sharing

                          We have a Problem on sharing documents with others.While entering a name in sharing page, some suggestions comes up.

                          The problem is, that some people are named the same. For example some people are called Thomas Müller. On sharing all of them are mentioned and it isn't possible to see, which entry it the right one.

                          It would be nice, if a user can see department or something else from Active Directory on sharing suggestion.

                            We confirmed that the setting of “Block syncing of specific file types” in OneDrive Admin Center blocks uploading files from Sync folder, but it does not block downloading files from the Cloud even when setting extensions.

                            In order to improve security, I hope this behavior will be corrected to block downloading files from the Cloud as well under the condition above.

                            • Allow substituting a drive letter for the OneDrive for business folder(s).

                              We have a database that uses drive letters for folders. Using the "subst" command will do just that, substitute a drive letter for the long OneDrive path. However, this creates the folder "System Volume Information" - a hidden, read-only system folder that crashes OneDrive every time! Make OneDrive ignore system files! Allow a drive letter substitution for the long OneDrive path!

                                Provide the ability for OneDrive Administrators to flag a folder in individual users cloud based OneDrive for Business libraries as “un-shareable” (protected) so that the end user would have to move the file to another folder before they could share it. This would enable our users to put sensitive (private) files on their OneDrive for Business without the worry if accidentally sharing it.

                                  Office Lens というアプリを使用して、撮影した画像を OneDrive for Business 上の OneNote に保存している。しかし OneDrive for Business 上のアイテム数が 20,000 以上になると、Office Lens から OneNote への画像保存がエラーになってしまう。OneDrive for Business 上のアイテムを 20,000 以下に減らすというのは現実的な運用ではないため、現状の制限を撤廃し、アイテム数が多くても正常に動作するよう改善してほしい。

                                  Currently, we are using Office Lens app to save pictures to OneNote in OneDrive for Business. However, we have noticed that the error occurs when adding pictures to OneNote if there are 20000 items or more. Since reducing those items on…

                                    ​個人用 OneDrive では、共有の際にパスワードを設定できるが、OneDrive for Business では実装されていない。そのため、OneDrive for Business でも同じ機能の実装を希望します。

                                    As a matter of concern, the OneDrive for Business has no ability to set the password when sharing the data in spite of this availability has been offered for OneDrive Personal so far.

                                    Therefore, please configure the functionality of the password setting for the data sharing in OneDrive for Business as well.

                                    Thank you for your continued support.

                                    • increase the file upload limit

                                      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!

                                        • Group Your Individual Work OneDrive Folder with your Corporate/Sites OneDrive on the Desktop Client

                                          Currently I have to navigate to two separate places. It would be nice if all my work related company files whether they be more individual or shared be grouped in one folder/drive.

                                          I think Google Drive File Stream's structure where one has "My Drive" and "Team Drives" is easier to understand and these are both contained in the the same folder/drive.

                                          In short it would be nice if OneDrive lived up to it's name and all work related files were stored in OneDrive on my computer. I'm on a Mac, but believe the same structure exists in Windows as well.
