  1. 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. Allow Groove Music App to select a shared Music Folder for playback

    I have 3 separate family users on one PC. My main user account has all my music synced to one Drive Music folder and groove music app finds the music and plays it. I have shared the music folder with the other 2 users who have added the shared folder to their one drive accounts. All has synced fine. The other 2 users cannot however choose the shared music folder in their groove app as it is not the default Music folder set up by one drive. Is there a way I can get Groove to recognise the shared music…

  4. Shared items

    Multiple ways to view shares; By file, by person its shared with. Ability to remove shared permissions in multiple files at once rather than one at a time or remove all files shared with someone. Make it easy and user friendly to modify shares. If I want to change a write edit to read only for example.

  6. markdown

    I would like to share HTML and Markdown files that fully render to shared users. Currently such shares show only source code. :(

  7. 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!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Company Policy Message in OneDrive for Business Modern View

    Display company policy message: Is there a way to create a company policy message (eg, "Records and information stored in OneDrive is for Business use only...."?). on the header of OneDrive? It's important to display the company policy so users know that OneDrive is not for personal use.

  9. Automatically empty the Recycle Bin after a certain time (or storage) limit

    I tend to get a lot of files in my OneDrive Recycle Bin, most of which I had intended to delete permanently. It would be nice if I could set my Recycle Bin to automatically empty itself after a certain time (or storage) limit.

  11. Allow users to host podcasts with OneDrive

    Users are paying for space and bandwidth, so they should be able to host their own podcasts with OneDrive! That would entail generating an RSS feed based on content in a folder and exposing URLs to the actual files themselves.

  12. Uploading

    When uploading, how about a status bar? Either by file size or percentage. Now when uploading, since no way to tell how long, seems like forever waiting to complete upload.

  13. Shared Albums Show in Albums

    It would be nice if Albums which were shared with me would show up in my Albums versus me having to go Shared>Sharer>Album. Would love to see this feature integrate with the W10 Photo's app as well.

  15. Upload folder

    Hi,

    can you allow us to upload folder instead of files. It could be much easier. I know it's possible with Chrome, but should be possible without Chrome.

    Thank you

  17. Allow Copy files from shared folder to personal folder without downloading and uploading again

    I've just received a shared folder from a photography company, they have all the files for my English club and gave me the OneDrive link yesterday. But I have to download it all (10GB in total) and upload it again to my personal folder (because in my OneDrive, I shared a folder with my English club to work). That's extremely time-wasting !

    I think you should allow/enable the function of copy files from shared folder to personal folder, to make it more comfortable for users.

  19. Sharing between a OneDrive for business account and a OneDrive personal account

    When a file or folder is shared from a OneDrive for Business account to a OneDrive personal account the files should appear in the Shared folder.

    It is ridiculous that the only entry-point for the recipient to access these files is the email containing the share link.

    This is fundamental functionality for OneDrive for business to ever convincingly replace Dropbox shadow IT within an organisation.

  20. Add to my OneDrive for View Only shared folders

    Currently only folders which have been shared with edit permission can be "Added to my OneDrive" to allow sync.

    It would be good if this could be done for View Only folders as well.
