  1. implement the feature enabling to restrict internal file share.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■件名 : 内部ユーザー同士の共有を制限したい
    ■内容: OneDrive for Business において、テナント内のユーザー間のファイルの共有を制限したい。社内のユーザー間であっても、安易に共有が行われてしまうことによって漏洩のリスクが高まります。管理者によってい制御ができるよう、テナント内のユーザー同士のファイル共有を制限する機能を要望します。
    -----
    I am thinking of sharing the files among the users of OneDrive for Business's tenant. At this moment, there is a possibility that the data leak might be caused by a simple share even within company user, and therefore I hope the feature to be available that could enable to make a limit on the file share among the users of a tenant so that an admin could execute the restriction for shared files.

    • Support to HEIF/HEVC Formats

      Since iOS 11 starts to use HEIF/HEVC as the camera photo/video encoding format. Wish OneDrive could support these formats or convert it to JPEG/H264 before uploading.

      Thanks

      • Fillable PDF Forms

        Please re-enable the filling in of PDF forms on the OneDrive app itself. As of now, I understand that PDF files become marked as read-only once they are put in OneDrive.

        It would be much more convenient if PDFs could be filled in from the OneDrive app itself.

        • Organize files in a single column so we can see the FULL NAME of long files

          I have looked through the forum and this question was asked FOUR YEARS ago with still no fix as of July 2017.

          I have many files with very long, similar names and I need to be able to see the entire name of each one. The iOS app has the files organized life to right with truncated file names and there is no way to view them without leaving the current view to open each individual file.

          This can be fixed by either:
          1) organizing files in a single vertical column like on PC
          2) create a way of viewing…

          • Select Folder to Sync from Phone to PC.

            I want to be able to sync files to onedrive from my Phone the same way I can on Desktop.

            As it works now, it just looks for photos and backs up some folders/apps.

            I want to be able to choose a folder to sync to the cloud, just like on desktop, and it would be synced to the cloud exactly as the folder is, and any changes made to it would sync as well, just like on desktop.

            This way I can have multiple photo folders synced to my PC that are NOT all lumped together into "camera roll"

            • Files app

              Add support for files app in iPad. Currently, when I open OneDrive I’m files app, it opens in a new window. It should open directly on files app. See how Dropbox works.

                  I want to change the owner of an excel file in OneDrive for Business !
                  If an employee will leave the company and he is the owner of an excel file that a lot of people use it, I think this is a must !

                  • Enable sync client to allow editable synching of team sites with mandatory metadata columns

                    As at 23rd Jan 2017 the newly relased One Drive for Business synch client enables synching of Team sites BUT if any libraries have mandatory meta data or require check out, the synched folder/library is read only. This cripples collaboration by teams on documents. This needs to be fixed

                    • onedrive sync group policy

                      Allow control of ALL Onedrive settings via Group Policy. This seems ridiculous that I have to request this as a feature. However, the new OneDrive client is great that it has the granular control in place to control both upload and download limits. The fact that you can't control this via a GPO is ridiculous. I am trying so hard to find registry settings that correlate to these but can not. PLEASE ADD THIS SOON! The bandwidth issues are killing us here with a 50Mbps pipe and almost all is due to OneDrive syncing.

                      • Change color of OneDrive maps

                        It would be great if you could change the color of Onedrive folders to easily find among their files. Wish it could work in both iOs and Windows environments. This feature is available in Google Drive and is very handy.

                          • Implement the "Notifications Feature" in the modern UI as well.

                            Previously, there was a function to notify the users by email when items has been changed in the classic UI. By the way, I assume that this function is not available in the modern UI at the moment. It is a little inconvenient for us due to we frequently used the function so far. Therefore, I hope the feature of " Notifications" will be implemented in the modern UI as quickly as possible.

                                • Enable syncing of files across O365 organizations

                                  Many customers wan't the option to collaborate with OneDrive cross o365 organization, and have the option to sync the shared files with OneDrive. Right now you are only able to sync files shared within your own o365 organization. Right now the only option is to browse to the shared link and access the files. Trying to use "sync" will result in an error in OneDrive (next gen sync client) as shown in attached file.

                                    • More (than 1TB) OneDrive Space to Buy

                                      Please give us this option. People dealing with videos and photos professionally eat up 1TB very easily (even if they use whole inconvenient "family pack" 5TB workaround).

                                      Thank you MS,

                                      — Vuk

                                        • iOS 11 Files App Integration

                                          Like iCloud Drive, Google Drive and Dropbox, please integrate OneDrive into the Files app, introduced in iOS 11. This is most convenient for me as juggle different cloud services for personal, university and work purposes. Also, the UI is a lot more responsive and consistent.
