  1. improve the way of restoring the items once deleted the [Shared With Me].

    I hope the items once mistakenly deleted through the [Shared With Me] to be viewed again easily. Although I can show the items in case the users in a shared pool delete the files, upload them, and share the files again, I have some troubles in uploading the files and items and sharing the files and items again if there would be a large amount of the data or if there could be many users to be shared.

    • Improve the display of "edited by", "file size" and "shared with" after file editing

      Quoting Customer:

      After editing files, the items "edited by", "file size" and "shared with" remain blank for about 1 hour. Asking support about this, we`ve been told that this behavior also shows on other tennants. Please fix this asap. Since the last user to have edited a certain file can also be confirmed via "recent activity" in the "details" section, there is a viable work around available for the time being. However, it`s not very convenient and it would be preferable to be able to make confirmations without having to rely on work arounds.

      • Enable fingerprint as passcode

        Please enable finger print unlock as pass code instead of standard pass code, just like drop box does. No offense! It's just my suggestion.

        • allow an admin to restrict the users who should be shared externally along with a specified e-mail address.

          At this point, the setting is available that allows the external sharing along with a specific domain only. I hope you to allow me for the sharing not only with the domain but also the mail address once specified.

          • make me have a comment on the external sharing for [alternate email].

            In case of performing an external sharing with one of my users, the e-mail address is registered in the part of one user's [alternate email] within a tenant. I can set the [alternate email] along with [Role]-[Edit] by selecting a user in Office 365 admin center.

            When I attempt to perform an external sharing with this [alternate email],it is automatically replaced by the sharing for the user within the tenant registered as an alternate email.

            I would say that an alternate email is an alternate email after all. I sometimes want to invite an alternate email as an external user,…

            • Show full file/folder name

              I know lots of apps use the ellipsis/three dots (...) when the text reaches a character limit, but I think it's a little annoying when you have to go to the properties of the file/folder just to see it's full name. Just make a new type of view (detailed view?) or make it as an option in settings.

                • 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.

                  • More storage options - Up to 10TB plan

                    Please provide more storage options above the 1TB, as it's not enough and the lack of options is pushing users away to other services.

                    Adding 3 new Office plans, shouldn't be too complicated:
                    2TB - $£
                    5TB - £$
                    10TB - $$£

                    At least users will have an option!

                    Also if an user buy the 5 licences Office, why not allow him to stack subscriptions on the same Microsoft account?

                    • Wishing the viewing of the classic Office 365 within One Drive for Business's modern UI

                      I've found the location to show the Office 365 within One Drive for Business's modern UI changed into the site viewing. I feel it inconvenient if I experience this behavior because I have a difficulty in accessing the current files shared among Office 365 groups. I am also confused by this sudden issue because I'm not informed in advance of this behavior change within Message Center.So, I hope the public information about this change to be open in advance.

                      • improve the usage of the PC with little HDD storage.

                        In case of limited PC's HDD space, the HDD storage capacity may be pressed by the usage of a sync client having the copied files in a PC.
                        In the meantime, I also assume that it would take long time to open the files if I share them with a network drive due to the demerit such as the restriction of possible file copying storage capacity.
                        Consequently, I hope the application to be developed that enables to get accessed the files in One Drive for Business without consuming the HDD storage of Windows 7 PC.

                        • Disable Sharing in OneDrive for Business ENTIRELY

                          For our company it's a Must-Have to be have the option to disable the sharing on ODfB entirely (also tenant internal).
                          This is to prevent users from setting up project or team workspaces in their own user drives.
                          A similar idea was posted here, but since it was not splitted up by the user, I posted this new one.

                          • Remove Email Attachment folder

                            I can't stand the Email Attachments folder. So many users complain about this. We pay for this service, it is a personal drive and I want to be able to control which folders I view and which ones I do not. "It is by design", as recently received this reply from your customer service, made me even more upset. Fire your designer then and get someone from Apple.

                            • Prevent user from desynchronizing some folders

                              It is recommended by Microsoft to redirect "Known folders" to OneDrive for Business.

                              Source Microsoft: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Redirect-known-folders-to-OneDrive-for-Business-e1b3963c-7c6c-4694-9f2f-fb8005d9ef12?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

                              Desynchronizing a folder on OneDrive also removes it from the computer. This behavior generates side effects when desynchronizing "System/Known folders" (ex: Desktop)

                              Is there any plan for adding a GPO that could prevent users from desynchronizing some of their folders ?

                              • make me select the setting of "Sync the Office opened files with Office 2016"at the time of synchronization setting.

                                I am aware that the setting of "Sync the Office opened files with Office 2016" turns out automatically be enable after a synchronization setting of One Drive for Business and SharePoint site and I can't select its setting at the time of sync setting. Therefore, I hope that users will be able to choose the setting they wish.

                                • consider my comment on the modern sharing screen within One Drive for Business.

                                  I have been performing the sharing by inputting an user name at the time of[sharing]along with a right-click of an item. On a new sharing screen, I have a difficulty in understanding how the screen is proceeding due to the default behavior leading to the sharing along with the method set within a SharePoint admin center's[default link type].
                                  I am afraid that there will be a possibility I would experience the sharing behavior that I don't even intend to, and therefore I hope the new sharing method to be switched back to a classic one.

                                  • MS Message Center should viewable by any interested party.

                                    We have numerous application teams that want access to MS Message Center however they aren't admins. Why not provide rights to just this portion of the Admin Center (view\read only) based on role or group membership? Alternatively why not have a Message Center DL or RSS feed or a Message Center site associated with each tenant viewable to all?

                                    • provide us with explicit public information.

                                      I am having a difficulty in referring to the public information because it is not well structured with each of the features and products, and therefore I hope the structure to be arranged.

                                      • Onedrive Empty sites results showing in Search center

                                        Everyone except external user has default read on Shared with everyone folder inside Onedrive. We have turned off setting in Office 365 not to show that folder which is successful.
                                        Everyone except external user still had read access to Onedrive and because of this empty Onedrive search results showing up for all the users. We worked with MS support and they have asked to submit uservoice on this issue.

                                        Users are automatically added to the “Everyone Except External User” group when a user is created. This is a default group in SharePoint. More details are…

                                        • 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.
