  1. have me perform the batch output of each of the personal site's admin including the one except an owner.

    When I check admins within One Drive for Business using the setting of delegated administrator and the one along with the[Manage user profiles]within SharePoint admin center or the setting through Power Shell, I am able to add the users excluding an owner into each user's personal site and to confirm that they are the admins there.
    As far as the management of additional admins is concerned, I am also aware that an owner user is able to delete such additional admins along with the function of [Site Settings] and [Site collection administrator]. I hope that I will be able to…

    • OneDrive for Business and OneDrive for Consumers should share a hashing algorithm

      Currently ODB supports QuickXorHash, while ODC supports SHA1 and CRC32. There should be at least one hash that is common across both of the services.

        • to improve the feature concerning expiration date for sharing.

          For the sake of more enhanced security, I hope the feature to be implemented that enables the setting of sharing term at the time of sharing as well as the automatic unset of sharing when its term length comes. I am aware that I will be able to set the term length through anonymous guest link and to deactivate the setting of the link. If I used this type of feature, it would be very helpful in terms both of the sharing for users within tenant and the one requiring users outside of tenant to sign in.

          • Wishing to check the dates updated within OneDrive for Business's files through IE

            I am aware that the updated dates shown on One Drive for Business differ from browse to browse in case I look into the One Drive for Business's files through IE along with [Open with Explorer], allocation of network drive, and synchronization client.My understanding of this behavior is that there are some difference of references shown between PC and the [Modified] column within One Drive for Business on browse. This causes me some trouble because I must open a browse in order to check the file's updated status precisely. So,what I request is that I will be able to use…

            • Apple "Live" Photos formatted on OneDrive

              Photos taken with iPhone 6s/7 camera are "live" photos that move when you hold down on them. It would be great to save them in that format to OneDrive! I don't want to store some since they will become still photos on OneDrive :(

              • Regarding loss of characters caused by the character code of files saved in One Drive for Business

                Depending on the kinds of character code, the uploaded file in One Drive for Business such as text file has unreadable characters so that I can't check the file on the browser. I am aware that I am able to avoid such a character corruption by changing the code into Unicode or UTF-8 but I really feel it inconvenient unless I can use the code I select due to the automatic setting of character code. Therefore, I hope the behavior to be improved in order that I will be able to view the files without any loss of characters.

                • Wishing the [OneDrive- Save file as company name] to be invisible at the bottom of attached files within Outlook's incoming mail

                  In case Outlook's incoming mails are with attachments,
                  [Download] or [One Drive- Save file as company name] is shown.
                  I am also aware that the file are save in One Drive for Business after clicking [One Drive- Save file as company name]. Since I have no intention of saving the file, I hope the feature having [One Drive- Save file as company name] hidden to be added into the system.

                    Please add the ability to save Live Photos to OneDrive. iPhone 6s and 7 have Live Photos features but if you upload it to OneDrive it will become just a still photo that doesn't move.

                      We would wish for a function that allows members of a security group to easily access folders shared in security groups on OneDrive for Business.

                      • Improve how the OneDrive mobile app displays shared items

                        Quoting Customer:

                        Currently, files and folders individually shared by other users are being properly displayed in the OneDrive mobile app. Items shared with groups however are not being displayed. We want to share files with large groups of users within our company and therefore would welcome it, if the OneDrive mobile app would accurately display files and folders shared with groups.

                          Due to the increase in job labor in case an user intends to operate check-in and check-out intentionally, I hope the additional feature to be provided that enables the automation of the check-in and check-out within One Drive for Business.

                          • Regarding the syncing of SharePoint Online Team Sites

                            The information on SharePoint Online published by Microsoft states that when syncing team sites with the new sync client, the names of the document libraries are being displayed and can easily be kept apart. Yet, currently they are being unified under the tenant name and it`s really hard to keep the document libraries apart.
                            I would like you to make improvements on this behavior, so that it`d be more convenient to use.

                            • Regarding the behavior while printing out Excel survey

                              I am aware that after responding to Excel survey, I normally print it out right before its sending so that the respondents could save its details. However, when I look into the printed details displayed though the browse showing the Excel survey information within personal One Drive, I found that there were the fewer screens viewed than the ones actually printed without displaying on the browse screen.I also checked that the bottom of survey items was lost.
                              I hope the printing of Excel survey's response screen to be exactly the same behavior of printing as the one with which I…

                              • Can't have folder added into [Favorites] even if I try to activate share along with the next generation sync client through Window 7.

                                I feel inconvenient if I add folder manually into [Favorites] just because the share with SharePoint document library and One Drive for Business's [Share with Me] doesn't allow me to perform automatic sharing with the conditions below. I do hope the sharing behavior to be improved.

                                Conditions:
                                ・ Windows 7 + Internet Explorer
                                ・ Windows 7 + Google Chrome

                                  • Purchase OneDrive storage with Microsoft rewards

                                    It should be possible to purchase OneDrive storage with the Microsoft rewards. It's crazy that I can get gift cards for Microsoft products with those reward points but I can't apply those points to OneDrive storage.

                                        I hope the feature to be implemented that makes the site at the One Drive for Business's left list invisible without deactivating following and Office Graph feature.

                                        • Regarding sharing restriction among users in organization

                                          I am aware that I can use personal regions within One Drive for Business but I hope the feature to be implemented that owner will be able to restrict sharing as well.
