  3. Allow family members to add files to a shared family folder structure

    The notion of a Family doesn't properly exist. Each family member (having their own OneDrive account) should be able to add files and folders to a common shared family folder structure. So you have family pictures, family documents, etc. Now, as main account holder, I share the family pictures, but my wife can't add the pictures she made during our holiday into the shared folder. If she does that, they are only visible to her and not to me / the rest of the family.

    Creating and supporting a true Family concept would enable huge marketing options as well as…

  4. Allow uploads greater than 15GB

    If the user has the capacity, uploads shouldn’t be limited to 15 GB. I can’t store a backup on OneDrive because it’s 20 GB. Google drive doesn’t have that problem; iCloud has a 50 GB limit.

  7. Local Disk Storage Limits

    Save our users from themselves.

    We desperately need a solution to limit how much data is synced to the local disk by the OneDrive Sync Client. In an Enterprise scenario, where it's beneficial to allow large amounts of storage in the cloud, there is often not enough local storage to accommodate a user's full data store. Selective sync doesn't satisfy organizational concerns about using up local disk space. Even files-on-demand is leaving a lot of trepidation at the management level. Users will typically just choose to sync everything without thinking of the consequences.

    I propose an enforceable policy (GPO or…

  8. Camera Upload- choose destination folder

    So I really appreciate the camera upload feature. Would it be possible to let users set a destination folder by choice? I like to organize all my photos and it's not easy when I end up with a few thousand in one folder after forgetting to go in for a few months. Right now they just seem to end up somewhere random and I'd like to be more deliberate.
    Thanks and keep up the hard work!

  9. Implement the function/option to hide the [+] icon which displayed on the left side screen of OneDrive for Business.

    I am aware that each user can create an Office 365 group by clicking the [+] icon which appears on the left side screen of OneDrive for Business. To prevent this, I carried out cmdlets to control from the Microsoft Planner, therefore Microsoft Teams also became unusable at the same time.

    Then I have been changing the settings to activate Teams, however, each user is still able to create Office 365 groups from their own OneDrive for Business screen.
    For the ease of management, I hope the feature will be implemented enables controlling to hide the [+] icon (to create…

  11. Search only inside current folder

    It would be great if I could open a folder and search for things only inside that folder instead of always searching my entire OneDrive no matter where I am looking. Would make it much easier to find specific files from a mobile device.

  12. Provide the feature to be able to confirm the expiration date information of anonymous guest links on the screen (UI).

    For the ease of management, I would like to the status from the list on the screen(UI) when the anonymous guest link of the expiration date has met. Let me explain the current behaivor below.

    1. Select an item in OneDrive for Business, Set the expiration date of an anonymous guest link and sharing the data.
    2. Even if the anonymous guest link expires and the user cannot view it, [Sharing] status displays as [Sharing in progress].

    So that, I hope the function will be added that provides the status of each anonymous guest link on the interface whether the…

  14. Ability to make the "People with existing access" default selection in "Copy link" dialogue.

    We would like to be able to use "Copy link" functionality or file sharing without messing the site permissions. There is currently no way for setting the default permission option to "People with existing access". Users need to change this every time they use the functionality.

  15. Duplicates

    Can an option be added in OneDrive to identify duplicate files I.e. When you have uploaded the same photo more than once but it's in different folders. This was a useful tool in Picasa and would be great if it could be incorporated into OneDrive. You should have the option to check and delete the duplicate.

  16. Disable Files On demand by default

    Files on demand would have been a great idea 10-15 years ago when disks were small. Now that 1TB and larger disks are commonplace even in lower end laptops, this is just a horrible option. I've found myself forgetting when moving from one device to another to turn this junk off and when I find myself in a place with terrible or non-existent Internet I don't have all my files despite having hundreds of GB free on my disks. At the very least, I should be able to disable this quack feature in 365 globally so when I login it's…

  17. File modified date changes automatically even if the file is just opened and closed without any modification

    In Office 2016, there is an issue with the file's modified date with files that are saved locally on a user's system but synced with their One drive.
    Even if a user opens up an excel file and just closes it without making any changes or without saving any changes, excel automatically changes the Date modified to the current date and time when it is opened. This creates problem in tracking the file based on their last modified date.
    Pls restore back the earlier version when the Date modified would change only on saving them and not otherwise.

  18. Disable "Download" option from One Drive for Business" Office 365 web console.

    It would be grt if Microsoft can provide us an option where in we can disable Download option from One drive for business web console.

    Reason: We have some confendital data that our employees save in ODB. We have created a policy from ODB admin console which says that they can only activate ODB on a domain joined machines. but the web console is not protected. The user can go home and login to ODB web console and download the data. For the security purpose we want to disable the "Download" option from the web console.

  19. To be able to schedule syncing time.

    To be able to schedule syncing time.
    Currently, I can stop syncing for few hours. But, I have to do it daily.
    There must be an option where I can schedule “stop sync”.
    Example: Do not Sync from 6PM to 10AM daily.
    I don’t want my home wifi to consume bandwidth.

  20. Bring to OneDrive Business option "Add to my OneDrive" only available only at personal OneDrive

    I want this feature in OneDrive for Business.
    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Add-and-sync-shared-folders-to-OneDrive-8a63cd47-1526-4cd8-bd09-ee3f9bfc1504?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US&fromAR=1

    When someone shares a folder and gives you edit permissions to it, add the shared folder to your own OneDrive to make it easier to edit and work with the folder and its contents. If you sync the folder to your Windows or Mac computers running the OneDrive app, you can work with the folder offline.

    Add a shared folder to your OneDrive

    Sign in to OneDrive on your browser.

    In the OneDrive navigation pane, under OneDrive, click Shared. Folders you can add to your OneDrive are marked Can edit.
