File Download Statistics
Have an option to view statistics on files eg Number of downloads, Country of Download etc
Update: We’re rolling out the ability to see who viewed your files on the File Card on OneDrive for Business. You can hover over a file on the web to get to this. Let us know what you think!
Peter Williams commented
The hover feature is nice for occasional use but an exportable list would be more use.
Also, it only seems to display access by internal users at the moment. No mention of specific external users or of access via anon links.
Just a simple list of who viewed, downloaded, etc. would suffice.
+1 it would be super useful for Data room scenarios where you share your files with others to see who has accessed files, when, etc.
is this available yet?

Why is this simple feature taking so long? Just another reason to pay for the service!
Need it urgently

VERY MUCH NEEDED!!!

OneDrive is an annoying expericence. ! How in Gods, Allahs, Buddhas or whatever stuntman you call upon) - are you thinking of ? Thousands have asked for control on what files are downloaded - and by whom? - Since you only offer 5 gigs free (!) - we - the USERS! - need to know when uploaded photos, documents etc., have been seen/downloaded. Simply since we want first of all to know if the photos etc. has been picked-up - and secondly because we in positive case can delete and free space for future use. "Just call them and ask" ... really - should that be your answer - ask Stevie Griffin to be transported back to the 1950's where - obivously - you belong - - sorry.
1. Total download 2. How many different downloaders from which countires 3. Date/Time when downloaded (4. Microsoft id name of the allowed downloaders (too see which one of your friends did download it and whether an unknown person downloaded it)
As I thought! Microsoft constantly asks its customers for suggestions or improvements and new features, but does not care a bit about it! Not any response after over 2 years after an admin said he was thinking about it! Very brazen! This is not only with a problem on this post, but with almost all on this site!
What is the definition of procrastination - not doing anything since July 09 2015
and it is now 16th December 2016
Why are you thinking about it?
All your competitors do it?
You used to partially do it with bitly short links from which stats could be obtained but took it away!
Update please with implementation date
This should be a feature with the highest priority!
1. Total download 2. How many different downloaders 3. Date/Time when downloaded (4. the ultimate feature would be if you can leave your mail adress when downloading. The person who host the documents can now contact the downloaders. With that feature onedrive would be most successfull for projectmanagement companys/construction industry. feature 4 should be possible to disable as host. and downloaders should not be forced to leave the information.)
The statistic could be anonymous or with IP and location even with name and mail if the downloaded gets the chance to leave this information.
The lack of this feature makes the service unattractive for companys. Im working in projektmanagement business and I know a couple of companys that would pay alot more than offered for onedrive if you could just have some realiable download statistics or ultimatly that "leave contact date feature".
Stop thinking about it and DO IT before you competitives do it! It must be working till march 2017 cause of new EU tender laws. I can nearly guarantee a onedrive business contract with my company if you do it.
Hey, What's the update on the much needed feature, because it would be super useful right now?
Now you have been thinking a year... what is the result of your thinking Omar?
This is a no brainer, a must have if you will, a spiffing good idea.
I vote for stastics,
