  1. implement the feature to restore the trash in bulk.

    In case a large amount of items are put into the trash within OneDrive for Business, I must try to restore them serveral times since none of the items loaded are put any ticks when scrolling down even if I try to restore them in bulk along with the check marks. Consequently, I hope the feature to be implemented that could restore the items in bulk with PowerShell. Additionally, I wish the function to be available that an admin could perform restoring OneDrive for Business's items when they are accidentaly deleted.

    • 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…

      • 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.

        • Enable displaying the customized application launcher when using [Office Online] tile.

          Currently, I am aware of that the customized application launcher is not displayed when you opening [Office Online] (Word Online, Excel Online etc.) at present. Also, since the [...] which is originally displayed at the upper right of the application's tile is not displayed either hence it cannot be changed from Office Online. To increase work efficiency, I hope the feature will be enabled displaying the customized application launcher when using [Office Online] tile in near the future.

          Thank you for your continued support.

          • Enable modifying the name for the synced folder displayed in Explorer.

            I am aware of the sync folder name displays as [OneDrive - Corporate name] in the side bar on the Explorer when Synchronization is performed between two user accounts within the same tenant so that the user cannot distinguish the contents unless opening the folder.

            Since the name of the synced folder cannot be changed, it is displayed as follows. (Regardless of changing name of the entire tenant.)
            1. [OneDrive - Corporate name]
            2. [OneDrive - Corporate name(1)]...

            We have a situation that using a single computer to separately use the multiple accounts (such as Personal OneDrive) , therefore I…

            • Clarify the display name of OneDrive for Business Sync Clients.

              Currently, OneDrive for Business (groove.exe) and OneDrive (OneDrive.exe) are installed on the PC.*Two types of them

              I am aware of that it is possible to manage the synchronization for both of Office 365 account and Microsoft accounts from OneDrive (OneDrive.exe). However, now the user has difficulty in recognizing the difference between them because of the screen shows OneDrive for Business (groove.exe) at the present. Hence, Users may misunderstand OneDrive as being for Microsoft accounts so as the cloud icons.

              I hope the feature of display will be implemented to clarify the difference of display for each function or change the…

              • improve the setting feature that could cause the delay in reflecting the details of its setting once modified via Office 365 admin center.

                I am aware the the occasional delay occurs until the modified setting is applied when making a change for the setting through Office 365 admin center, and therefore I hope the feature to be improved so that it could reflect the modified details of the setting.

                • Fix file copying for all sizes

                  While we can successfully move "small" files with the Move To option in the website, Copy To *always* fails for "bigger" files. I haven't looked for an exact minimum size that can't be copied, but I know that a file of 24MB cannot be copied.

                  At the very least any restrictions should be documented.

                  • Add the feature of the interface that the user is able to follow the documents directly by the button click in the modern UI.

                    I am aware of the classic UI is able to follow the documents after clicking the [...] button at the bottom of the screen directly from the screen for OneDrive.
                    . However, I am asuming there is no such a thing as the same function has implemented in the modern UI. It was a useful frequently function of the classic UI so that I hope the feature will be added the [...] button in the modern UI and the user will be able to follow the documents from it as well. Thank you.

                    • 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,

                        The teacher, including myself, is utilizing SharePoint and OneDrive for Business while the students are using OneDrive for Business.
                        I am aware that the ”friendly search” enable to share the personal details about their e-mail address among them and I want the feature to be prohibited. However, all I can do is to forbid them the entire tenant's usage so that I feel inconvenient that the teachers are unable to perform the ”friendly search”. Consequently, I hope the ”friendly search” to be forbidden per site collection in order that only teachers execute the ”friendly search” within SharePoint. It would be…

                          • Allow distributing the items collectively to user's tenant in OneDrive for Business by the admin.

                            For user's convenience, I hope that the admin will be able to distribute items collectively to users in One Tenant OneDrive for Business not only the sharing function. Additionally, It would be great if the admin could control the permission for "disable deleting or editing", then enable collectively distributing to the specific users as well. Thank you for your support.

                            • 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"

                                Currently, the administrators can only view the user profiles from the SharePoint admin center and check the set users individually or on a group basis from [User Rights Management in the [People] section by the default.

                                I hope the feature to be available to check the list from the output of CSV file or on the modern UI.

                                • OneDrive for Business の 10 TB を超える追加容量について

                                  (English follows Japanese)

                                  OneDrive for Business の容量が不足しているため、提示された手続に従って SharePoint Online サポート窓口に連絡し、増量申請を行いました。
                                  申請が通り容量が追加された旨の連絡が来ましたが、10 TB を超えた容量は、OneDrive for Business に対してではなく、SharePoint Online のサイト コレクション作成用の記憶域として提供されることになっている、とのこと。

                                  当方が希望しているものは「OneDrive for Business」の機能としての容量であり、「SharePointサイトの増量」を希望しているわけではありません。

                                  以下の公開情報においても明確に「OneDrive for Business に対する」容量を無制限に利用可能であることが明記されており、契約時にこの点を考慮した背景もあります。

                                  Microsoft は 10 TB を超えた容量についても、OneDrive for Business に追加するという約束を実行する義務があります。

                                  Re: Additional storage quota exceeding 10 TB for OneDrive for Business

                                  Basing on the lack of storage quota, I've requested increase of my OneDrive for Business storage more than 10 TB to Microsoft Support with following determined procedures.
                                  The required storage was added, however, not to OneDrive for Business but to tenant storage for creating site collections.

                                  This is completely different from my requirement -…

                                  • Be aware of the behavior for the OneDrive Apps goes down when modifying the file via iPhone.

                                    I am aware of the behavior that the OneDrive Apps apparently is shutting down within a minute and the display returns to the home screen when modifying the scaling the file repeatedly in App.

                                    Therefore, I hope the future to be able to keep the App operation without shutting down via mobile devices as well.

                                      • Allow obtaining a log of access to the folders without accessing the files.

                                        I am planning to share the folder with external users in near future, but for security protection, I hope the feature will be able to get the logs that enable seeing which folder has been accessed includes the name of users and accessed time. Thank you for your continued support.

                                        • Disable displaying the contents [Access Files from Mobile device] by the default.

                                          In our operation, we are restricting the access to OneDrive for Business from all mobile devices. However, the screen [Access files from mobile device] is displayed at the top of the screen in these days when starting OneDrive for Business. (Please see the attached screen shot.) This contents possibly make the users confused that also make them think it is accessible or recommended access from the mobile device.

                                          So that I hope the feature will improve to disable displaying the [Access Files from Mobile device] contents when the setting is off. Thank you for your support.
