  3. SharePoint Migration Tool Migration File Names

    It would be more helpful to have the tool keep track of our migration files by names we give them rather than your tool assigning it a name based on the arbitrary date it was run. If you run a number of migrations and go back looking for them to do incremental syncs, they are pretty hard to find, especially because they fall into the list in some random order the tool decided upon instead of the actual dates listed in order.

  5. Disable Excel Online for CSV files

    I work in scientific computing and I save my results in CSV files. Sometimes I need to access the file history of a CSV file but I cannot.

    Why? Because if I open the file history (online) OneDrive WILL open the file in Excel Online, while simultaneously converting it to XLSX and erasing its file history.

    So I cannot access the file history for CSV files.

  8. ccweems!gmail.com

    With the onset of longer passwords why not put a reveal button to allow you to confirm password on all boxes that require a password? I expect exploited passwords are very rarely due to someone looking over your shoulder. If anything make it a security option. I work by myself and I am willing to take the chance...

  11. OneDrive security - Prevent everyone to share a file when they are not the owner

    I created one file, in this case a OneNote NoteBook and shared it with friend A with "Required user to sign in before accesssing docuemnt" via OneNote for Desktop. When friend A received the invitation email from me, he clicked the link "View in OneDrive" then he still can view and edit my NoteBook immediately wihtout login in to his Live account first. Then he can just share the link he got from the invitation email and send it to everyone else and they all can view and edit my NoteBook without my permission.

    If he logs into his Live…

  15. a

    have a way to pause syncing. speed up upload and download. have a way to get rid of the 'upload error messages' when onedrive errors occur, haviubng the erroras stay in the Queue and visible even after I've seen them - and there's no action available for the errors anyway.

  18. Update OneDrive Windows client so the "provide feedback" link points to uservoice

    After the latest update I got a pop up message from OneDrive telling me that my files are synchronized (yeah!) and that I need to upgrade to Office 365 (I already am using O365). I decided to click on the help -> provide feedback link in that pop up. It brought me to https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/category/86087-windows and a message that the forum was closed and that I needed to go to onedrive.uservoice.com to pick a forum.

  19. OneDrive keeps reverting the Files On-Demand setting after application update.

    Each time Microsoft OneDrive Windows Client is updated, the Setting "Files On-Demand: Save space" is enabled even though it was previously disabled. This causes that recent files in OneDrive to be stored as an empty file in the Synched folder of the Windows computer.

    The upgrade should verify the setting before starting and make sure the setting is maintained throughout the upgrade to make sure any new files added to OneDrive during the upgrade are downloaded as expected.

  20. In Onedrive Backup of Documents folder should not be restricted to all or nothing.

    At present the backup of computers covers all documents or nothing. I have recently availed of the backup facility in Onedrive, but immediately ran into a problem when I tried to use a software which automatically download stocks and mutual fund prices for updating My Microsoft Money program (which I have used since the 1990s and is the best money management software in the market) saved me a lot of labour each week has stopped functioning. This problem could be resolved if I had the ability to choose which documents to backup, thereby I could prevent all linked files being…
