  1. Regarding the "OneDrive" item of the Office client

    When following the path “File” – “Save as” – “OneDrive” – “Sign in” on the Office Client, it is not possible to log in to Office 365, even when correctly inputting the account information. That`s inconvenient. I`d like to be actually able to log in from that screen.

    • There are cases of editing steps not being reflected when co-editing in Excel Online

      When co-editing files in Excel Online with a big number of users, there are cases of editing steps not being properly reflected and the file returning to its status before the editing. Since our business processes require us to co-edit files with multiple users, we would wish for Excel Online to run stable and reliably reflect changes, even when working with a big number of users.

      • I would like the OneDrive admin center to properly function

        Regarding the management of the mobile application that uses Intune in the OneDrive admin center, there are malfunctioning places like even though making the settings on iOS, screenshots can be taken and “Request sign-in for Office 365 when launching the app” doesn`t work for either Android or iOS. Also, there is no published information about the function of each setting item or how to make settings. As I certainly would like to consider mobile device management, regarding the management of the mobile app using Intune in the OneDrive admin center, I would like you to ensure that each item is…

        • 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.

            • I see this ridiculous "Set up OneDrive" pop-up a thousand times a day. The more I see it the less tempted I am to set up OneDrive.

              Why not encourage me to use your products by making good ones with features that I want instead of by constantly distracting me from my work by pestering me to set them up. If I wanted to set up OneDrive I'd have done it. Leave me alone!

              • right click a file to share its full SharePoint URL / parth (for synced local folders from sharepoint)

                As the "groove" features the old sync client is now combined with the latest OD4B sync client - i noticed a feature missing

                Back when the OD4B had a separate "groove.exe" sync client, a user can right click a sync'ed local file and copy the full URL (to your sharepoint site). This feature is no longer available to the file, but this feature is very handy please add that back in!

                If i have to share the file with my team, i now have to describe the folder structure... or manually browse to that file on sharepoint to copy the…

                • Make the OneDrive client controllable by batch

                  It would be nice to have commands at hand to control the OneDrive client per user in a simple yet efficient way, e.g. set the up-/download rate of OneDrive\user to NNN kbit, pause or restart, get info about remaining time or bytes etc. This is important e.g. during night hours, where no one's at hand to adjust the clients manually and where archive, backup, reo or whatever jobs could hand over bandwidth and processing power to OneDrive once they finished their work.

                      • Recover files deleted from bin or deleted after 30 days

                        Offer a File Recovery option or as a paid service for files excluded from bin and deleted automatically from bin after 30 days.

                        Provided as a premium service or paid per incident, it would be an extraordinary selling point and advantage compared with other cloud services!
                        There is a business opportunity being lost in here!

                        Thanks,
                        Alex T.

                          • to consider sending the notification to admins concerning the time the One Drive for Business's storage limit comes.

                            I am aware that the message is sent to users like owners that indicates the time when One Drive for Business's storage limit comes, but I hope it to be sent to other users such as admins as well.

                              Since I am using SSD which has limited space, I do not want any sync folder to use my C drive. However, OneDrive does not provide any button for user to decide where to put the sync folder.

                                • 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?

                                  Alex

                                  • Regarding the opening of PDF files in the new UI on Internet Explorer

                                    When opening PDF files in the new UI on Internet explorer, high lightings made in the document with the marker function of Adobe`s application disappear. It`s no problem to have contents properly displayed in the new UI on other browsers. Further, with the old UI it was possible to open files with the Adobe add-on and have them properly displayed. I would wish for you to improve the behavior of the Internet Explorer, so that highlighted text can be properly displayed.

                                    • make me edit the“.PDF” file hit by the [Search] of One Drive App for iPad

                                      When I open the file whose extension is “.PDF” once displayed by the search results with the [Search] of One Drive App for iPad, I am unable to show its edit icon so that I can't edit it. Therefore, I hope the feature to be improved that enables to edit the ".PDF”when viewed with the [Search] of One Drive App for iPad.

                                      • onedrive mobile app: show full paths under additional folder

                                        in onedrive mobile app (android & ios): show full paths under additional folder so we know which app the files are being uploaded from... this will be useful especially if i have 2 apps that both have subfolders with generic names like "image"... and you only want one of them included...

                                        • implement the feature that enables to show the downloadable items once searched in One Drive for Business.

                                          In case of selecting a single file from the list of the items searched within One Drive for Business, I am aware that I am unable to view [Download]. However, I can display the [Download] when choosing some of the items within One Drive for Business. As a consequence, I hope the feature to be implemented that enables me to download a single file as well.
