  1. Password of shared files in OneDrive for Business

    Similar to OneDrive-Personal it would be great if the "Set a password" feature on shared files (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/share-onedrive-files-and-folders-9fcc2f7d-de0c-4cec-93b0-a82024800c07#OS_Type=OneDrive_-_Personal) could be included in OneDrive for Business please.

  2. Better description for sync status

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    同期の完了について

    Better description for sync status
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    同期フォルダーの状態が全て"同期済み" となっているが、同期クライアントが"処理中です" の状態は、ユーザーが同期の確認をする際に同期フォルダーと OneDrive for Business との同期が完了していると誤認識してしまう恐れがあるため、わかりやすい表示に変更を希望いたします。

    When all the sync folders are in “Synced” status but at the same time the sync client is in “Working on it” status, it seems like the sync between sync folder and OneDrive for Business have already completed and it might confuse users.
    For that reason, please change the descriptions of the status to more user friendly and understandable.

  3. Add 'track changes'/'suggestions mode' for Word Online

    In Google Drive, we can share a file in 'comments' mode in which other users can make suggestions to the file BUT only the owner can accept or rejects them. It is pretty much how Word works when the 'track changes' option is enabled.

    In OneDrive and Word Online, we can either share files with full edit rights or no edit right at all - this, makes collaboration work pretty much impossible in certain scenarios.

    This seems to be related to those posts:

    When accessing OneDrive for Business from a browser, the menu "Flow" at the top of the screen is highlighted in a circle, and then the bottom of the "Flow" button is marked with a drop icon.
    I hope you to give a feature to hide the drop mark (or just to not display the mark).

  9. More transparent download of ZIP files in browser

    More intuitive download of ZIP files in browser

    Sharing already compressed .ZIP files via OneDrive for Business with external partners is a challenge for them.

    Often, they mistake the ZIP file for a folder because it's so easy to access the compressed file. Then they mark the folder inside the ZIP and download it.

    By just marking the folder inside the ZIP and then downloading it, OneDrive decompresses the folder and then re-ZIPs it for download. Now you have a system-created ZIP file and for those the maximum file size is limited to 25MB. That is logical from a system…
