    • OneDrive Delay Logoff During Sync

      In Educational Labs and VDI, it would be beneficial to be able to hold/hang the logoff process while OneDrive finishes syncing.

      In both scenarios, users can logon with their employee/student account, and we can make OneDrive available to them via GPO. However, if a user generates a large amount of files/data and then logs off, the sync stops. This could be problematic for several reasons:

      1) It would be detrimental because in many Lab/VDI environments, the user profile is volatile and data would be lost.

      2) Even in a less volatile environments, the user might want to save the files…

      • Enable Site level Sync

        We want sync button to be enabled at Site level rather than doclib level and the onedrive wizard can help us choose document libraries or folders specific to a site we want to sync with PC. For organizations like us where we have few 100's of sites created per division and department it would be tedious to choose each document library related to user and click on sync button . It would really serve us well if we have ability to sync at site level and can automatically sync 100's of sites per needs of each department.

        • Duplicates created when opening documents (iOS)

          Offine-avaliable files opened while online and causes the iOS app do display a duplicate file that can not be deleted, opened or changed.

          This happens every time an offline-available document is opened, edited and closed. These files can not be deleted, marked or edited in any way. Only way to remove these duplicates is to reinstall the OneDrive app, it is not solved with deleting cache.

          The original can still be edited but new duplicates are created upon closing/uploading the changes. These duplicates only exist on the device (does not appear in sharepoint or other devices) and i suspect these…

          • Enable using the Notification function of OneDrive Sync Client with Office 365 account.

            *English follows Japanese

            ​OneDrive 同期クライアントの通知機能についての改善要望です。
            ・Microsoft​​ アカウントで同期すると、通知機能が使用できる。
            ・Office 365 アカウントで同期すると、通知機能が使用できない。
            Office 365 の OneDrive for Business でも、通知機能が使用できるようにしてほしい。

            We have confirmed the following behavior regarding the Notification function of OneDrive Sync Client.

            - You can use the Notification function when synchronizing with Microsoft account.
            - The Notification function cannot be used when synchronizing with Office 365 account.

            Therefore, I hope the feature will be improved that enable utilizing the notification in Office 365 OneDrive for Business too.

                    • Send a notification email to the creator of a link the first time it's used by the recipient

                      When we send an anonymous link to a customer, we don't know if they've clicked it and downloaded the file or not.

                      We send links to customers from our Box accounts and find it's really useful to know when they've used the link to read what we sent them, so that we can follow it up at the appropriate time instead of bothering them before they've had chance to access the link.

                      This functionality should be really easy to add... it's literally keeping track of whether this is the first visit to the link and firing off a quick email…

                              When moving files from Document Library in SharePoint Online to a shared folder in OneDrive for Business, it requires us to download the files to the local PC and then upload them to the shared folder in OneDrive for Business.

                                  When inserting a hyperlink to access a PDF file to an Excel file in OneDrive for Business and accessing the hyperlink, a warning message “A potential security concern has been identified” will pop up every time.

                                  In order to improve work efficiency, it will be great if there was an option to hide those warning messages.

                                  Thank you for your consideration.

                                  • Speed up creating shareable link

                                    This could be because OneDrive & SharePoint Online has generally been going very slow for the last two days, but it takes ages to create a shareable link. I'm sat here looking at "Creating shareable" link for as long as it's taken me find this page, login and type this message. In fact, it's sill trying to create the link.

                                    So the suggestion is to speed this up. Dropbox creates a public link in the same way in seconds.

                                    • OneDrive のアカウントの確認機能の拡張

                                      OneDrive のアカウントから遡って、
                                      現在サインイン中のアプリケーションや、PC を確認したい。

                                      デバイスの確認は現在でもできるが、
                                      それ以外に接続している Word などの PC・デバイス名や IP アドレスなどを確認したい。
