  2. Shared files access logging

    OneDrive for Home does not provide access logging. I would at least like to know how many times my shared file was assessed or even more information as time, IP, user...
    Now I am afraid to share files because I am completely unaware what happens with them after they are shared.

  3. SYNC OTHERS SHARED FOLDERS/FILES TO OWN COMPUTER/DESKTOP!

    We have OneDrive 360, approx.19 000+ employees. The majority complain about this.

    You must understand that a normal company can´t work in the browser like this. Please make it possible to sync the shared folders/files from others, down to my own OneDrive desktop. Not in sharepoint or the browser. Everybody wants to work with the files on the desktop/computer.

    As mentioned in these threads:

  4. OneDrive for Business - File and Naming Limits

    File naming, directory limits, etc should be 100% equal to those of NTFS.

    So that when we are synching files and folders from Microsoft Windows File Systems we ,shouldn't be getting messages that say there are file conflicts, sounds like incompatible 3rd party products not flagship products made by the same company... crazy!

  8. Remove or hide connected services from Word and Excel

    I wanted to remove some "save as" locations from Word and Excel. Currently shows 3 different cloud locations which come from OneDrive:
    - OneDrive - <company name>
    - Sites - <company name>
    - OneDrive personal

    Our users are only using one OneDrive location which is their OneDrive for Business folder, and it's too confusing for them to see 3 different cloud locations under "Save As". I wanted to keep only the OneDrive for Business, and followed by "This PC".
    I have read an article that shows that I could remove those connected services under File > Account menu option, but…

  9. bring back onedrive placeholders!!!!!!!!

    This can't be hard to do...without it, I now have to take multiple steps to retrieve files that used to be one click away. I was a Microsoft fanboy for decades... But the utter silence on this...and other things -- like letting WP die on the vine -- is really making me bitter towards the company.

  10. Linux installer (RPM)

    I'm going to raise the suggestion again.

    We would love to have a native installer for Linux OS. My flavor of choice this week would be an RPM - seems apt considering the recent partnership between RedHat and Microsoft.

    Pretty please?

  11. Share and Sync functionality for folders with Office 365 to PC and Mac

    Teams using Office 365 Business Premium should be able to share and sync OneDrive for Business folders over all OS platforms. It should possible to share folders between the users of groups and have these folders synced automatically to Windows 10 PC's and Macs.
    This functionality is available for the personal OneDrive version, but Office 365 Business users will want to use their 1TB space which comes with OneDrive for Business.

  12. Implement the "Notifications Feature" in the modern UI as well.

    Previously, there was a function to notify the users by email when items has been changed in the classic UI. By the way, I assume that this function is not available in the modern UI at the moment. It is a little inconvenient for us due to we frequently used the function so far. Therefore, I hope the feature of " Notifications" will be implemented in the modern UI as quickly as possible.

  13. Do not re-upload photos if they are already present

    There are two basic concepts here:
    1) Photos should be uploaded to the same OneDrive location, regardless of their source (the PC app and the mobile device should both upload to "Camera Roll" (right now the PC uploads to "Camera imports" but the mobile app uploads to "Camera Roll."
    2) If a photo has already been uploaded by another device, they should not be uploaded again. This is not an advanced concept; Windows Live Mesh/Sync had similar capabilities. Examples:
    - If I use the OneDrive app on my mobile device to upload photos, and then connect my phone to my…

  16. OneDrive Albums

    PLEASE, make it possible to disabled the automatic option of making galleries or albums from my photos. It is really frustrating. I wish to turn it off and I can't. If you have such option one should be able to control if he wants them or not. You can't just force it on me to automatically make weekend albums or whatever.

  17. Apple "Live" Photos formatted on OneDrive

    Photos taken with iPhone 6s/7 camera are "live" photos that move when you hold down on them. It would be great to save them in that format to OneDrive! I don't want to store some since they will become still photos on OneDrive :(

  18. Show shared documents on new desktop client

    Instead of having to go to the one drive online page to open shared documents that others have shared to me via word and one drive rather have those documents show in there respective office apps or have all documents shared with the user appear and sync to desktop.

  19. Camera Upload

    Please enable the Camera Upload feature in the mobile OneDrive for Business app. It's kind of ridiculous that free users can upload their pictures to personal OneDrive accounts, but paying business users cannot.

  20. Auto populate the OneDrive business owner email adress to enable "request access"

    The default receiver for approval of access request to documents store on OneDrive for business is currently "someone@example.com".

    It would make very much sence that the "owner" of the OneDrive for Business email address is automatically loaded in to the field "Access request approver"
