  2. quickbooks Export

    When exporting reports from Quickbooks to existing Excel Workbooks that are synced with One Drive the operation fails over 75% of the time. Currently as a workaround we have to close the One Drive application then complete the exports from QB and then relaunch the One Drive app once the work from QB has been completed. This used to work with no problem and has only recently become an issue which sounds like an update occurred that broke the functionality.

  3. Permanently disable the OneDrive Auto Update in Task Scheduler for "per machine installer"

    When we disable the "OneDrive Per-Machine Standalone Update Task" from Task Scheduler it stays Disable state until restarts the machine and after restart the machine it is again enabling the update task to Ready state

  4. Please add a File Explorer status icon for DLP blocked files

    To help users identify files that have been blocked by DLP rules, add an icon to the status column, or to a new column, to notify them that the file violates DLP policy.
    This icon is visible in OneDrive on the web.

  5. Add a Disconnect/Unmap verb to odopen://

    We use extensively the odopen:// protocol to automatically mount OneDrive libraries.
    Is it possible to have a similar command to "unmount" or unlink a library from a users' profile, ideally also to query linked libraries?

  9. Restored files should have a date modified equal to the last modified date of version being restored

    Currently when a file is restored the modified date changes to the date it was restored. Instead, it should have the last modified date as found in the version history.

    The lion share of restorations that we do are to restore a file that should not have been updated. Having a modified date of when it was restored suggests that new information was added recently.

  10. Allow external non-Office 365 Business users to sync OneDrive Shares

    Please allow external users who don't have a OneDrive for Business account (i.e., users with a personal OneDrive account only) to sync shared folders to their local computers. We can already grant edit access to external, personal users, which works fine through a web browser. Also, external users with O365 business accounts can sync our shares. But the combination is not possible: external personal users can't sync. This is FORCING us to drop OneDrive and go back to DropBox, which supports this seamlessly even in their free service.

    While better not to constrain the size/amount of syncable files based on…

  11. Make it possible to prevent files/folders from syncing automatically based on word filters

    Many professional authoring tools every few minutes, sometimes 5 others 10, create autosaves of over 1GB sometimes 2 or 3GB, and even more, which do not need to be uploaded. It would be great if there was a blanket rule for uploads preventing files or/and with the word "autosave" or other depending on the software, to be synced only on demand. Since for some of them there is no particular folder that you could exclude,) or simply can't exclude for other reasons, (since excluding means removing entirely and some tools automatically regenerate them) a filter come very handy.

  12. Network bandwidth required for sync client updates

    Network bandwidth required for sync client updates


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business のネットワーク帯域幅は、現在同期に必要とされるネットワーク負荷についてのみ想定されている状況ですが、同期クライアント アプリの更新に伴うネットワーク負荷を下げるような機能については提供には至っていない状況です。

    利用環境によっては、ネットワークの逼迫を回避するために計画的な OneDrive 同期クライアント アプリのアップデートを実行しているが、重要な更新プログラムのリリースが必要とされる場合は 60 日間の猶予期間が省略されることがあるため、想定外のネットワークの逼迫が発生してしまい、広範囲での影響を及ぼします。
    そのため、ネットワーク帯域幅については同期利用時のみではなく、同期クライアントの更新に関してもネットワーク負荷を下げるような機能を早急に用意してほしいです。​

    The network bandwidth of OneDrive for Business is currently based only on the network load required for synchronization, but the feature to reduce the network load due to update of the sync client application has not yet been provided.

    According to the usage environment, we have been executing updates for the OneDrive sync client app in order to avoid an overstrained network, if an important update program needs to be released sometimes the grace period…

  14. Make behavior stable even when more than 30,000 items are being synchronised

    Make behavior stable even when more than 30,000 items are being synchronised


    公開情報でも、同期しているアイテムが 30 万以上ある場合は、パフォーマンスに影響する可能性があることを確認しています。
    業務上扱うデータ数が多く、同期するアイテムを減らすことが難しい状況です。
    そのため、同期しているアイテムが 30 万以上あった場合でも、安定して動作するように改善を希望します。

    タイトル : OneDrive および SharePoint で無効なファイル名とファイルの種類 - 同期またはコピー可能なアイテムの数

    ------- 抜粋 ------

    同期しているすべてのライブラリで 30 万アイテム以上がある場合は、パフォーマンスの問題が発生する可能性があります。

    Even from published information it is clear that having more than 30,000 synchronised items may affect performance.
    Out organization handles a lot of data, and therefore it is difficult to reduce the number of items being synced.
    Therefore, we would ask that improvements be made to allow stable operation even in excess of 30,000 synced items.

  15. Backup Important PC Folders - Additional Options

    "Backup Important PC Folders" should have additional options to include all the primary user profile folders - particularly Contacts, Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Favorites, Music, Pictures and Videos.

    The most important ones would be Favorites and Videos to add to the mix, but realistically it should even include the 3D Objects folder.

    This would not only make IT environments far easier to automatically back up, but also personal use of OneDrive would be far more beneficial to the average user.

  16. Pause syncing for specific folders

    I saw this topic already even in a discussion from last year (https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/selectively-pause-syncing-folders-in-onedrive/bff8908e-fe5c-420b-99a5-08fb1f630d1d), so I believe this would be helpful. Especially when a Project manager works with many projects and many people and everybody share their folders. Then it would be helpful and faster for the system to choose, which we want to have sync at a time and some other folders just pause.
    When I would work the next week on another project for example, I can start syncinc the relevant folders and the others keep offline for the time when I dont need to use them…

  17. I want to select a folder in my local documents to not be sync with OneDrive

    I am having conflicting issues with R statistical software. I want to select a folder in my local documents to not be sync with OneDrive, but your software does not have this option. It feels like OneDrive hijacked my computer. I have to have OneDrive permission to acess all my folders. Sometimes, when internet is unavailable, I cannot access local folders, because OneDrive does not let me. I want to select which specific folders I want OneDrive to sync and backup. And also I want to make default to make all files available first in my computer, and then second…

  18. Customize email to managers of terminated employees

    Please make it possible for admins to customize the email to managers. The out of the box email contains spelling errors and is very spammy/phishy feeling.

    I can't believe this isn't an option in this world of cyber attacks!

    I want the ability to brand the email so it matches (at least as closely as possible) our corporate standards.

    I want to be able to format the text so it is easily readable, conforms to our style standards and basically looks professional.
