  1. Allow users to update files by "upload(ing) new version(s)" of files similar to what can be done to a file in Box.com

    On Box.com, users can update files by clicking "upload new version." This would be a great feature to add to OneDrive for management of files that can't be edited with Microsoft Office web apps.

  2. Share Top Level Folder and allow permission for sub folders and files

    Please see the image attached but rather then sharing the top level folder and everybody has access to all sub folders and files we would like to share the top folder and then change permissions if needed on separate files and sub folders.

  3. Improve the function of OneDrive for Business's [Recently used items].

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Business の [最近使ったアイテム] の改善要望

    Improve the function of OneDrive for Business's [Recently used items].


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business で更新したファイルが自動的に表示される、ライブラリ画面左側の [最近使ったアイテム] 欄について、表示されているファイルを非表示に変更する機能を追加して欲しい。
    ファイルを削除したり、作成し直すと、削除済みのファイルや普段はあまり使用しないファイルなども表示される。
    表示されるファイルを自由に変更できないため、整理ができず使用しにくいと感じます。
    [最近使ったアイテム] 内のファイルの表示を変更できる機能を追加して欲しい。

    We hope you to add the option to hide [Recently used items] section located in the left side of library screen which displays automatically the recently updated OneDrive for Business files. The files not frequently used are also displayed on [Recently used items] once we delete or recreate the files.
    We feel it is inconvenient that we are not able to change the displayed files accordingly.

    Therefore, I hope…

  4. Ordering folders numbers

    Please fix the problem ordering folders:


    1. Folder ***

    2. Folder yyy

    3. Folder zzz

    4. Folder www

    Current OneDrive does not order the folders properly with numbers.

    Thanks,

    Fabio

  5. Thumbnails for .AWR files

    AWR files are Sony Raw photo files.

    Please add support to create thumb nails like you do with Canon/Nikon raw files.

  7. Lift 1000 files upload limit.

    Many a time I get better speed of uploading or at least immediate upload starting. The 1000 file limit really hurts there. Also suppose I am on a computer without admin access and want to upload my project folder having many short sized files.... I get stuck. When you have a big house, make the roads wide too!!

    We looked at increasing the file upload limit via the browser to OneDrive.com. The reason we chose 1000 was because we wanted a number that worked well in most browsers.

    I’d recommend if you are uploading thousands of files, it is easier to do it via the desktop sync client.

    Will leave this open but likely won’t get to it for a while as it is dependent on browser tech.

  8. Allow direct acces to shared files using "real" links

    If I have a file stored on my OneDrive account I should be able to share it and access it directly as a link:
    http:\oneDrive.com/userID/document.extention.
    http:\oneDrive.com/userID/image.png

    Now accessing a file is dome using a link... to a web page.

    tell us more  ·  Casey Penk responded

    Hi Elvis, can you tell us more about this suggestion? Currently you can access OneDrive files using the links, like onedrive.live.com/file_name.

  9. Allow uploading of file folders whose name already exists, but which contain new files.

    In Windows 10, I can copy a file folder to another directory where the same folder already exists, and Windows will only copy the files that are not in the target directory. I am then given the option of overwriting or skipping existing files (or saving copy). In OneDrive the program will NOT ALLOW this function, as it only accepts uploads when the file folder does not exist. This makes uploading MUCH MORE DIFFICULT
    than the same operation in Windows 10. Basically you need to delete the target folder and start all over again. Please fix!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Unable to delete folders if contains files

    Cannot delete folder in Onedrive. We receive error message "You have to delete all the items in this folder before you can delete the folder".

    Got update that DLP policy or Retention policy is causing this issue

    We want to fix this issue by product team

  12. Versioning

    We really need versioning. It's a must. I want to switch totally from Dropbox plan. Maybe an official position about this feature if it's in plan or not and how long we will have to wait.

  13. OneDrive integration with iOS 11 Files App

    When will OneDrive integrate with iOS 11 Files App. Both Google Drive, Dropbox support integration with Files App and the ability to drag files into other apps, like Apple email app. Apple iCloud also provides the functionality.

  14. Edit EXIF information on Onedrive

    You can display the EXIF information stored in a picture on OneDrive.com, but you cannot edit them.

    It would be great to select some pictures and correct e.g. the exposure date or the GPS coodinates of the selected pictures at once.

  15. Restrict OneDrive for Business access for specific IP address

    Restrict OneDrive for Business access for specific IP address


    現在、OneDrive for Business を指定した IP アドレス以外からのアクセスを制限するよう設定した場合、SharePoint Online もアクセスが制限されてしまう。
    OneDrive for Business のみアクセス制限できるよう改善して欲しい。

    By setting “Allow access only from specific IP address locations” in OneDrive for Business, it cause a restriction for SharePoint sites access as well. We want to allow access to OneDrive for business only in specific Network and at the same time it should not affect SharePoint site access.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  16. Office 365 missing Mind-Mapping-Tool

    Office 365 and OneDrive is nearly perfect. The only tool I'm missing is a simple mind-mapping-tool. This would complete the great Microsoft product family.

  17. "Block download" option for files shared via external link, but at the same time, allow for editing in browser.

    Allow users with access via external link to edit files on browser, but also prevent them from downloading files via "block download" option enabled. This can ensure files with PII or other sensitive data shared, remains on company's onedrive and improves data compliance, especially in light of recent consumer data privacy rights (CCPA, GDPR, etc...).

  18. OneDrive LAN-sync

    It would be nice if there was an option to sync files over the LAN since it's much faster. Especially if you have to transfer 10's of gigabytes of files.
    This would be grate when you restore a computer and need to download all the files again. It takes forever if you have to download all the files from the web.

  20. All the shortcut icons become blank when using Files On-Demand

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    ファイル オンデマンド機能利用時にショートカット アイコンがすべて白紙になる。

    All the shortcut icons become blank when using Files On-Demand


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business にてファイル オンデマンド機能を使用して、ファイルを右クリックし、"空き容量を増やす" にてクラウド上にのみデータを置いた場合、同期フォルダー上のショートカット アイコンの表示がすべて白紙のアイコンになります。
    "このデバイス上で常に保持する" にて、ファイルをローカル上に保持した場合は、ショートカット アイコンが表示されますが、一度でもファイルを右クリックし、"空き容量を増やす" を実行すると、再度ローカル上で保持しても白紙の状態のまま戻すことができなくなります。
    白紙の状態だと、ショートカット アイコンがどの種類のファイルであるのか識別が難しいため、ファイル オンデマンド機能にて空き容量を増やした場合でも、Word であれば "Word" のアイコン、"画像" であれば "写真" のアイコンのように表示される状態が保持されるよう機能改善をお願いします。

    When selecting “Free up space” in Files On-Demand to put files back to online only, all the shortcut icons on the Sync folder become blank. If you selected "Always keep on this device" and keep your files at local, the shortcut icons are displayed as normal. However, once you right-click the file and select “Free up space”, the shortcut icons become blank…
