      ​OneDrive for Business では、Office クライアントや Outlook の機能を利用する際に使用するフォルダーが自動作成される。現在、[Attachments] というフォルダーが作成されているが、このフォルダーを非表示にする機能や設定を提供してほしい。

      • Enable searching users for the notification destination from items.

        *English follows Japanese

        ■Title(件名):アイテムから通知先ユーザーの検索を行えることを要望いたします。

        Enable searching users for the notification destination from items.
        ***************
        ■Description(内容):
        現在、通知の設定について、通​​知先に設定したユーザーからどのアイテムに通知設定を行っているか確認が行えるが、100名以上の単位に通知先を設定する予定のため、ユーザーから通知アイテムを検索するのでは、現実的な運用ではないです。
        そのため、​アイテムから通知先のユーザーを検索できる機能を実装して欲しいです。

        Currently, we know that you can check which item you are setting notification settings from the user you set as the notification destination. After this, we plan to set a destination of notification more than 100 users, so that searching for notification items from users takes a huge amount of effort.

        Therefore, I hope you to implement a function that can search users for notification destination from items.

        Thank you for your continued support.

          • Editable old file name when renaming

            When renaming a file, it would be very useful to have the old file name pre-filled in the textbox.

            1. It’d be easier to make a minor change to the filename.
            2. The file name could be copied. (Useful when renaming a related file to a similar name.)

              共有中のファイルを、ローカル PC の同期フォルダーにて編集する際にファイルの競合が発生してしまい、変更内容の統合や情報が分散されるため余計な工数が発生し、都度ビジネスに遅延が生じてしまいます。

              When editing shared files in OneDrive sync client folder in local PC, file conflicts would occur and we have to merge the changes of contents and dispersed information. It makes extra workloads and causes the delays of our business each time it happens.
              In addition, not all users use Office 2016, so they are not able to edit the files at the same time.
              Therefore, I strongly hope the function will be…

                  • Fix the "All files up to date" when they're not status report

                    When OneDrive opens it initially reports all files up to date before it has checked. Consequently this status is often wrong. The status is important. That's why OneDrive reports it. So it should be correct. The initial status should be "checking"

                      Enable export of Fillable pdf forms to another App.

                      When using "Open in Another App" to open a Fillable form in for example Adobe Acrobat, PDF Expert or Fluix the Fillable option disappears.

                      Our Flight Instructors need to Export Fillable PDF Forms to Fluix, in order to have them available in the Fluix App.

                          • .onedriveignore, an ignore file like git

                            gitignore for OneDrive

                            Add a .onedriveignore file to the OneDrive folder (global) in which you can specify files/folder to ignore.

                            Do the same for subfolders.

                            This would allow easy syncing of Visual Studio projects for example, as currently the application just syncs non stop if you open a solution file that has it's data stored with OneDrive.

                              I really want to be able to play the music that I have stored on my OneDrive on my Harman/Kardon Invoke.
                              Groove integration would also be nice, then I can play Groove playlists on my Invoke.

                                  Excel Online でドキュメントを作成した際、スクロールワーク シートのスクロール範囲を固定したい。
                                  スクロール範囲に制限がないため、10000行を超えてもまだスクロールが可能。
                                  スクロール可能な範囲を決めておき、指定した行や列以上のスクロールが行えないようにしたい。
                                  また設定した場合、PC、タブレット端末どの端末から確認しても、スクロール範囲が固定された状態で閲覧できるようにしたい。

                                  I am considering to make a limitation for the scroll range of worksheet when creating a document on Excel Online. In the current behavior, you can scroll indefinitely so that it can be going to the ranges beyond 10,000 lines so far. Since it is inconvenient in use, I hope to set the scroll range freely for the users to edit only within the specified range…

                                    In case virus infection occurs, we need to confirm that which files have infected by viruses to deal with the problem. I concerned that it might be a cause of delay in our business because checking all the files manually to specify which files are infected…

                                    • Add the option to change file display settings - show date modified

                                      The date listed for displaying files on Android is date created. This works for photos, but is unhelpful for files that are continually being updated. I suggest adding the option to change the date displayed to date modified rather than date created.

                                        I recognize that when editing Excel files using OneDrive for Business sync client on Mac OS, the files opening in the sync folder will not be saved automatically and a new file will be added. Because of that behavior, we cannot use co-authoring feature in Mac OS.
