    Automatic removal of virus-quarantined files


    ■Description(内容):
    ウィルス感染が疑われるファイルが見つかった場合、自動的に駆除してくれる機能の実装を希望します。
    現在の SharePoint Online、OneDrive for Business ではウィルス スキャンは行ってくれるものの駆除については、手動で行う必要があります。
    ウィルスが検疫されたファイルが見つかった場合、管理者等から目視確認ができるよう検疫フォルダーなどに移され、アラートを発し、管理者による目視確認ができ、さらに指定期日後に自動的に駆除される機能があれば業務工数への支障回避やセキュリティに対する安心感が得られると考えます。
    また、このような機能はライセンス種別に関わらず提供されることを望みます。

    Please add a function to automatically remove files that are detected for virus infection.
    The current SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business have a function to scan for viruses. But the removal must be done manually.
    Please add a function to move a virus infected file, upon detection, to a folder like "Quarantine folder" so admins can see, then set off an alarm, and even automatically delete the file after specified days. Such function would reduce the number of…

  2. Add support for MKV files

    I know you declined this in 2015 but it's been 5 years since then and we still can't play MKVs in any OneDrive client or on the web. MKV is a very popular file format and many poeple use it to store their videos. Please add support for MKV playback in the browser (and other clients if possible).

  3. Restore Files/All Files - Implement An Option to select a Location

    Restore Files/All Files - Implement An Option to select a Restore Folder Location

    Digging through folders after restoring a file is a pain. Especially when I forget the Location of the Original File.

    This feature would be very handy!

  5. Provide option for sending file in an email as attachment

    There should be a way in OneDrive to quickly email a file as an attachment. Scenario: you know you need to send a file, you go to OneDrive and search for it, you find it...and now you have to go back to your email, start a draft, and find it again to add it as an attachment.

    In OneDrive, you should be able to just select the file and click a button on the toolbar or right-click menu. That should start a draft with that file attached.

  7. Make it possible to sign out from the OneDrive for Business settings screen too

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Business の設定画面 からでもサインアウトできるよう希望します。
    Make it possible to sign out from the OneDrive for Business settings screen too


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business にアクセスし、[歯車のマーク] - [OneDrive の設定] をクリック語の画面 ([通知] や [その他の設定] の画面) には、画面右上に人型のマークのアイコンが表示されず、サインアウトの操作ができません。
    そのため、サインアウトの操作ができるようにしてほしいです。

    On the screens (‘Notifications’ and ‘Other settings’ screens) displayed after going to OneDrive for Business, clicking the “gear icon”, then “OneDrive settings”, the person-shaped icon in the top-right is not displayed, so you cannot sign out.
    Please make signing out from these screens possible.

  8. Configuration ability for 'Request for more SharePoint storage space' e-mails

    Need to be able to edit who this email is sent to rather than spamming all Global and SharePoint admins.

    At the very least give us an unsubscribe option so that GAs that do not support SharePoint or OneDrive can stop the clutter.

    Thanks

  9. Faster refresh when people exit the document

    If I open the file in the web based excel accidentally, I have to wait 10+ minutes until I can actually open it on the desktop version because it states that it is locked for editing by myself. Super inconvenient when I am needing to get into the document to do something.

    Search keywords inside multiple file types in current folder
    Please implement a feature in cloud drive, so user can search keywords inside multiple file types in current folder. E.g. search keyword "cat jumped over bridge" in folder X containing PDF1, PDF2, PDF3, Word4, Excel5, etc

  12. Whomever came up with this rule, "A work or school OneDrive for work or school folder must be empty before you can delete it."

    Whomever came up with this rule, "A work or school OneDrive for work or school folder must be empty before you can delete it." Sucks! You should be figuratively shot! You try and remove 300,000+ files and 8k of folders BY HAND!? YOU have a user who has to have that stuff removed so it doesn't resync. WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT? At least for gods sake put in an option to remove all and a confirmation. **** make it two confirmations. But that ... not like that.

  13. In list view of OneDrive, wish there are all sorting options similar to File Explorer

    Why not add sort by "file type or kind" and others sorting options into
    onedrive? This will attract customers into subscribing to Microsoft 365 to max your money

  14. When I select "photos" I should be able to choose which folders include photos. the suggested options do not include "camera Roll"

    allow the user select which folders to show on the "Photos" tab. I don't want to select all photos because all my album art shows up. I should be able to add "Camera Roll" to the list of available folders. In fact I should be able to select any of my OneDrive forlders to display in Photos and I should be able to de-select any folders from showing up in photos

  15. I paid big money for a custom made 2 terabyte storage PC. I did NOT ask for One Drive and it's skimpy 5gb storage.

    This is a complete ripoff. I paid big money for a custom made 2 terabyte storage PC. I did NOT ask for One Drive and it's skimpy 5gb storage. My files should be going to my 2 terabytes of storage. Not a scam program that only has 5gb.

  20. Ability to rename a file whilst it is open in Preview

    On the Android app version, I can rename a file whilst previewing the first page of it. This appears to be a missing feature from the web version. Instead I have to preview a file, then write down or try to remember key details of it (dates, codes etc for the file name) to then go back out of preview into the list of files, to rename the file... Which 9/10 I get incorrect! Clunky and seems odd!
