  1. Web Portal New Folders/Documents Safari 10.1.1

    There is a problem with the onedrive web partal. Currently in Safari you are not able to create a new folder or office document from both the menu or right mouse click. You have to revert back to the classic UGI to do this. In doing so you loose the fluidity. I have previiuls logged this here:

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/forum/odwork-odfiles-sdoffice/one-drive-on-safari-1011-will-not-create-new/d0182639-34ea-46de-950e-3a3fa9216b4a

    where it was suggested I post here also, thanks.

    • improve the setting way of ”Give access only through a specified IP address location”.

      In case of setting the access restriction along with IP address within OneDrive Admin center, I hope the details in description or the public information to be utilized to check the available conditions of IP address being set. Hopefully, I wish I could confirm the details about the situation where Subnet Mask is required.

      • improve the downloading behavior concerning the folder with double byte characters.

        In case OneDrive for Business's folder name contains of double byte characters, the name is garbled when the folders are downloaded.
        Technically, this occurs only on Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge instead of Google Chrome and Firefox, and therefore I hope this behavior to be improved.

          • Roll out enterprise management (GPO etc) with OneDrive Files On Demand

            With the new OneDrive Files On Demand feature (placeholder replacement) would it be possible (if it isn't already planned) to incorporate some enterprise controls- for example via Group Policy.

            When deploying OneDrive to our environment I'd like to be able to set the defaults on a per-computer and possibly per-user basis. Being able to use item-level targeting would be ideal.

            Examples of how these preferences could be used include the ability to set the default behaviour to "Online Only" files for most users (particularly useful for student computer labs in education environments), or turn on "Always Available" on personal computers…

            • Add basic ignore file / folder / file type functionality.

              It seems like a cloud sync should only do two thing sync some stuff, and not sync others. Why not add that second half of functionality? I see no value in storing TB's of temp files (in my case, 2.5 million files to be exact).

              This already exists and works in the non-Windows clients (ignore_v2.ini). Feature parity means this should have been added a long time ago to Windows.

              I realize there are really poorly thought out responses saying the solution is not to put files into the OneDrive folder. That isn't the way many project based programs work on…

                • improve OneDrive for Business's share folder.

                  I am currently using OneDrive for Business's files and folders shared with organizational users by administrating the shared items. When I access to the shared OneDrive for Business, I can confirm the behavior that there are the 2 ”file” columns at the left side and that all the filed and folders currently shared are displayed along with the upper column showing OneDrive for Business's files once shared by the users and the bottom one showing the ”files currently shared”. The modified date of the displayed files are older than the ones actually modified and this might confuse me since I…

                  • Keep the original metadata for all files includes the "Image and Text file" on OneDrive for Business.

                    Currently, the original metadata (Uploader/Creation date or else) remains in the file even after uploading/downloading on OneDrive for Business for the Office documents, however, the user is only allowed to see the latest metadata for the Image and Text files. Therefore, I hope the feature will be implemented enables keeping the original metadata for all files on OneDrive for Business, created in a local environment.

                    • Implement the function to discard the checked out items at once.

                      Now I have difficulty in finding or deleting the checked out items due to a lot of items exist in a folder on OneDrive for Business. It does take a time to visually check the status at present. Therefore, I hope the feature will implement to provide the search function for the checked out files and discard the Corresponding items at once.

                      • Enable eliminating a limitation of the threshold of Office 365 side to enhance the convenience.

                        I am aware of the behavior that If there are more than 5000 items being with a single folder, the progress operation is not normally performed. However, it is frequently happened to exceed 5000 items will be created due to the business operation. So that, I hope the feature will enable eliminating a limitation of the threshold of Office 365 side. (Provide availability to allow more than 5000 items can exist in the folder.)

                          • make OneDrive available only for internal environment.

                            I was unable to set the expiration date of the share link once created within OneDrive for Business. I know that an external user's access can be limited when creating a sharing link by the share link feature setting its expiration date. Furthermore, I am unable to set any expiration dates in case an external user's access is prohibited under any circumstances as you execute what that is. Therefore, I hope the setting to be available that could enable to set the expiration date even when making a share link for internal users.

                              • Be aware of the inappropriate behavior that unavailable service is available for OneDrive for Business.

                                I am aware of the behavior that it can be saved to SharePoint because of the icon is displayed as the storage destination in the situation when signed in to the Office client with the Office 365 account even under the contract of the Office 365 ProPlus plan. (This plan should not take advantage this service for the user.) In addition, Turning off the "OneDrive for Business (Plan 1)" license does not change the situation at all.

                                If the service is originally unsupportive, I hope the feature will be fixed to hide the [SharePoint] icon as saving destination when signing…

                                  • Enable mapping the Network drive to OneDrive for Business via PowerShell.

                                    Our company is planning to switch internal operation tools, so we are considering assigning OneDrive for Business to network drives while keeping with the system environment. Therefore, I would like to assign OneDrive for Business all at once to network drives and operate it. In order to make the process easier, I hope the feature will be implemented enables mapping Network drive of OneDrive for Business by PowerShell in the near future.

                                    • Improve the behavior of the Usage Report for OneDrive for Business.

                                      I would like to inform that the inappropriate behavior happens when acquiring the Usage Report from Office 365 Admin center such as activities that have been done during the report acquisition period is not recorded or activities of outside the reporting period are output.

                                      For our operations, the Usage Report is the important information as a reference so that I hope the feature will be implemented to fix this event and make it not to happen again.

                                      • Online Viewer Support for Autocad Files *.dwg

                                        Please add support for Autocad files.

                                        As a global production company we use a fair amount of 2D layouts in our projects. We have recently started using SharePoint Online and Onedrive for manageing and standardising Projects. While our office workers love working with supported documents in SharePoint, our engineers hates it. It's a very cumbersome task, to always download - upload every 2D layout in order to work with them.

                                        If we just could get a viewer it would be a good start enabling Autocad support and a great help to us.

                                        • Clarify the difference between "Office 365 Business" and "Office 365 Solo".

                                          Currently, the users are a little confused about the difference between the Office 365 Business and Office 365 Solo. Since they have the similar format name although providing a different service for us. To avoid this situation, I hope the system will provide us the public information that could clarify the difference in each service or change the format name as soon as possible.
