  1. Consistent sharing behavior for Office file types and custom file types

    Make a sharing behavior the same for both Office files types and custom files types.

    Current behavior:
    File Handlers 2.0 allow to register custom files types (that can be configured to open by custom web applications) for Office365 tenant.
    When you share this custom file type, a person who receives sharing link will download the file when after clicking on the link. Instead of downloading, the file should have been opened in a custom web application that the file is configured to open.

    For instance, for Office file types, when a person clicks on a shared Office file - it…

  3. Integrating SharePoint and OneDrive with Autodesk Revit

    We are construction company and I'm extremely happy to see one step in the right direction that Microsoft Office 365 is integrating with DWG.. but both MS and Autodesk already knows that AEC industry is moving towards BIM and they should go ahead and attach A360 viewer like thing with SharePoint. As a large partner of MS as a construction company we will really like to see that MS is doing thing in this direction which will increase our usage of platform which in turn benefits all of us.

  4. Don't display path to shared folder (all parent folders are visible)

    When sharing a folder, anyone can see the whole file path to that shared folder.
    E.g. Files/Shared/.../.../SharedFolder

    There is no privacy if every user with the link can see my drive structure.
    I know that they cannot access or see the other files or folders but I am very concerned about all people clicking through my folder tree.

    In Google Drive for example, only the Name of the shared folder and the tree for the sub folders of said shared folder is displayed, not all the parent folders like in OneDrive.

    This is a huge no-go!

  9. Public (without logging in) upload to a shared folder

    Make it possible to create a share forlder with Bill, send the link to him at bill@gates.com and let Bill just click on the link and upload/create files to that folder without signing. Folders could also be password protected so that Bill needs to know that to access the share.

  10. Network Drive functionality

    I love Office 365, but some file types does not work directly from SharePoint and sync does not solve the issue as it contain "username" in folder path making collaboration "impossible" on graphical design files composed by multiple fragments and many co-authors.

    This I suggest you to make a enterprise network mapping option, and the ability to prioritize updates to that sync. This would give the users the ability to have same folder path to the content.

    If PowerPoint file which is stored in OneDrive for Business is shared with enabling [Block Download] option, it is not available to open the file at browser of iPhone or Android devices.
    Word or Excel files are opened in same sharing situation, so it would be great if we can open PowerPoint files as well.

  12. Notify User when item reshared inside the organization

    There's this Set-SPOTenant powershell Parameter NotifyOwnersWhenItemsReshared, but the User only gets notified when a document is shared with a user outside the organization. A Microsoft Support call also confirmed this to be working as designed". Please make it also possible to be notified when a document is shared internally, so the owner of the document always has a overview who has Access to a file without having to look it up by himself.

  13. Sharing status in onedrive for business

    Weather we share files with internal or external users, sharing status shows only "Shared". It would be helpful, If it shows sharing type with text or any other visual indicator.

    The same status visual indicator in "shared by me" page and in windows explorer icon would help reviewing all my external access.

  15. Allow Syncing of Files Shared with Me

    I would really like the ability to sync the files that people share with me to Windows Explorer like I can sync the documents that I share with others.

    It would make accessing them much quicker and I honestly don't understand why it isn't already a feature.

  17. Adding the column "Date Created" for folders instead of using "Date Modified".

    Adding the column "Date Created" for folders instead of using "Date Modified" Using "Date Modified" for folder creation date only causes confusion among users. Currently, the "Date Modified" column for a folder does not change when a file is created or modified in that folder. there should be a column "Date Created" that shows the actual date when the folder was created. Then there should be a "Date Modified" column that actually shows the date and time when someone added, deleted or modified a file inside the folder

  18. Allow personal annotation for shared files

    Users are allowed to run notes on the shared files but the notes are available for personal view only and not shared like the files.

    This way, users would have personal notes not visible to others but will have a single source for the actual shared file.

    Example, I would be sharing files and discussing it over a meeting. Users can put notes on the shared files as we go along, but then these notes are available for their use only. Notes from other users are not shared, only the file.

  19. Share OneDrive files with anonymous links

    Hi

    It has been suggested that I put this feature request here (see https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_onedrivefb-mso_other-mso_o365b/share-onedrive-files-with-anonymous-links/79927f8c-3fae-4f85-a148-aec5de4122bc?tm=1534884711990)

    I have not been able to find a solution to anonymously share files we store on our company's OneDrive with the rest of the world.

    I find it very problematic that the generated links always contain a reference to the user who is sharing the file.

    This is problematic as, if we know who we share the file with in first instance, we haven't got the slightest clue who the file might be shared with further on...

    I would expect a similar behavior as on…
