  1. Make it possible to block past sync client versions from the admin side

    Quoting customer:

    Since we are planning to move on from the old to the new sync client on our tenant, we would welcome a function on that allows admins to block the use of older client versions. Further, we also don`t want the old client version to start up after clicking on the "sync" button when the classic user interface is being used.

    • OneDrive Administrator role in O365 Admin Center

      Hi,
      In most of enterprise environments is due to complexity support of various services on O365 platform divided into separate support teams. (i.e. Exchange, Sharepoint teams)

      With OneDrive Admin Center available I would expect that new role is introduced in O365 Admin Center to enable possibility to grant access rights for specific people only to OneDrive Admin center.

      At moment you have to be Global Admin and this doesnt fit most of support models in place.

      ODB Admin group should have access thru provisioned mySites, view-only acces to Audit Logs for troubleshooting purposes, and of course possibility to modify OneDrive…

        • I attempt to sync the folders with the next sync client within Windows 7 and its sync folder's name has been corrupted.

          I request that the sync folders'characters should not be corrpted in case of sharing with [Shared with Me] of SharePoint document library and OneDrive for Business under the conditions below. I hope that I will be able to open the files properly.

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

          • make Android device's file sharing possble.

            The event occurs that disables to display a subset of the sharing item when attempting to show the shared items through
            Android's One Drive for Business. I hope this incident to improved immediately because I normally read the files saved to One Drive for Business along with Outlook Web App.

              • 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.

                • Don't Default to Editing

                  As soon as I open any shared document, emails go out to everyone with access to it that I'm editing it. This includes when I just want to reread something, not make changes to it. So, everyone knows just how often I reread things, which is embarrassing sometimes.

                  The default opening setting is to edit, but if it defaulted to reading when opened that would solve a bit part of the problem.

                  • Let Us Say When We're Ready to Share Updates

                    This idea is about the one thing that has been very, VERY disruptive in my use of OneDrive: Every letter I type is available for everyone with access to the folder to see, and if I so much as open a shared folder everyone is emailed about it.

                    Let us update the document when we're ready so that we don't have to feel embarrassed watching our coworkers read as we make typos all over the place, and let us decide when the emails get sent.

                    • The function of the Excel questionnaire setting will be improved.

                      When I restricted the function of anonymous guest link to "Excel questionnaire", the users cannot open the files on OneDrive. However, I currently have confirmed that the UI showed a new Excel file is able to create the questionnaire even though it' not functioning.

                      I hope the restricted options of the "Excel questionnaire Setting" would be hidden.

                          I hope the setting of the Chart Location for Sync files on OneDrive will be available not only to the internal hard disk but also to an external hard disk or file server etc, when saving the Sync folders.

                            • Add one-time passcode for onedrive sharing to external users

                              When sharing a folder I want external users to have the option to use a one-time passcode similar to the prompt they receive for encrypted emails. It is unreasonable to expect all of our current and future business clients to create and track a microsoft login every time we want to secure and track shared files.

                                After I had purchased a plan, I have found it impossible that I could not edit the One Drive for Business's Office files along with the Office app within a mobile device. Therefore, I hope the explicit details in the introduction site about whether each plan is applicable for the file editing in Office app.

                                • Make it possible to switch off the user name prediction function for sharing

                                  Quoting Customer:

                                  We would like to keep other user`s accounts invisible as much as possible when using OneDrive for Business. For this purpose, we would like a function that allows to switch the user name prediction function that tries to auto-complete to previously entered user names or e-mail addresses based on on the first 3 characters off.

                                    • 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.
