  1. implement the feature enabling to create OneDrive for Business's (OneDrive.exe) sync foler within the partition exclud

    I am aware that the data in PC is generally designed to be saved within C drive. I am currently worrying about the possibility of PC performance degradation due to lack of storage capacity so I hope the feature to be implemented that enables to create One Drive for Business's (OneDrive.exe) sync folder within the partition excluding C drive or PC' housed drive.

    • Ability to edit offline files on iOS and Android

      Provide the same functionality that is available in Windows and MacOS sync clients that allows offline files to be edited. Curently read-only

      (NOTE: Files marked offline are read-only - you can edit the file only when you're online. If you edit the file offline, it saves as a new file, and does not change the original OneDrive file.)

      • Make it possible to delete files from "Recently used items"

        In "recently used items", files that have been used in the past are being displayed. However, this sometimes leads to mistakenly clicking on a file that currently isn`t being used. To increase work efficiency, it`d be desirable to not have each and every file displayed in "recently used items" or to have an option to clear the "recently used items" list.

        • Enable choosing an OneDrive folder where to save a file with "save as" option

          Today it is not possible to choose a folder within OneDrive for Business if you work online and want to save file. "Save as" saves file directly in root folder.

            • Allow creating "direct links" flavour when sharing a file

              Allow creating a shared link for a file, which can be send to a user via email (for instance) and user can download the file by using the link even from a computer without the need of using any Microsoft office account/api.
              To be clear, sharing files without any restriction, a "direct link" flavour.
              It's working as expected for a zip file for instance, probably because Microsoft cannot open it, so it lets you to download the file.
              But for a word file, Office Online is opened in the browser when clicking on the link.
              The behavior I'm looking for…

              • Wishing to sync along with setting of priority

                In case the synchronization through One Drive for Business's sync client is implemented, I wish I could take a priority over the folders I select for my convenience during the synchronization.

                  In case One Drive for Business's sync client stops, I wish I could check automatically the updated data on Cloud when the synchronization restarts.

                  • take it into account that the notification of the time storage limit should be available.

                    I am aware that the message within classic UI is displayed that indicates the time when One Drive for Business's storage limit comes. On the other hand, the modern UI doesn't show the message. Consequently, I really hope the feature to be implemented that enables to displaythe message or to notify me of it with e-mail.

                    • Regarding time zone settings of personal site

                      I would like a function that allows administrators to either batch-set the time zones of individual user's personal sites or to synchronize the site time zone with the location information in the user profile. We have a lot of users who aren`t overly knowledgeable about computers and thus our administrators are spending a lot of their time responding to related inquiries. There surely are a lot of companies who`s employees are usually all working in the same region, and so it`s quite inconvenient to have te time zone by default set to PST and every employee having to adjust their…

                        • I want control over simultaneous editing on the Excel client

                          In previous versions of the Excel client application, the message “Another user is currently editing this file” would appear if a second user was accessing a file that was already being edited and it was obvious for the second user that they cannot edit the file. However, with files synced in the Excel folder of the OneDrive.exe, other users also can access files that are currently being edited and there is no error message. I want a notification that indicates that another user is currently editing the file.

We would welcome it, if you could improve the new OneDrive for Business screen to properly connect to local settings upon opening files.

                                  • STOP CREATING EMAIL ATTACHMENTS FOLDER

                                    I don't use it, I don't need it, I don't want it, and I'm tired of constantly deleting "Email attachments". I have "Always attach them as copies" set in my Outlook OWA Attachment preferences (which reportedly disables the folder creation in Windows) and have traced the culprit to the iOS OneDrive and/or Outlook apps.

                                    • to be aware of folder's updated date.

                                      I don't experience that I am able to check the updated dates of folders whose items are change within One Drive fro Business. So, could you please have me confirm the files once updated within the folders? Otherwise, I am unable to see those file's updated status at a first glance. I hope the feature to be implemented that enables to display all the files within One Drive for Business by classifying them by folder without any folder's displays.

                                      • Chromebook: Office Online Extension, button "Save to OneDrive" to Business Onedrive

                                        If you install the Office Online Extension for you're chromebook
                                        https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/office-online/ndjpnladcallmjemlbaebfadecfhkepb

                                        And you open a Word document on the web it opens in a webviewer Example:

                                        • I suggest you may deliver a generic ADMX/ADML template

                                          You delivered a non-generic ADMX/ADML template with the necessity to manually add non-generic information like the tenant id and OneDrive Folder Default path.
                                          This breaks up with the design principle of a template, which has to be generic. The non-generic Information is added via gpedit.
                                          If you have a look at the policy "Site to Zone Assignment List" within inetres.admx, you can see that it is possible since Vista to create templates, where you then are able to insert the non-generic Information with gpedit and thus the policy creates the Sub key structure within the registry.
