  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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  10. Provide the more detailed information for Invalid file types in OneDrive.exe

    新しい同期クライアント (OneDrive.exe) で利用できないファイルの種類について

    Provide the more detailed information for Invalid file types in OneDrive.exe
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    新しい同期クライアント (OneDrive.exe) を使用し、従来の同期クライアント (Groove.exe) の制限事項の "無効なファイルの種類" に記載の以下のファイルのアップロードの動作検証を実施いたしました。
    <調査結果>
    *.laccdb、*.tpm、thumbs.db、EhThumbs.db、thumbs.db

    通常同期フォルダー上では同期が完了すると "緑のチェック マーク" "青い雲のマーク" などが付きますが、当該のファイルについては同期フォルダー上で何も付かない、またエラーの表示がないことを確認いたしました。
    なお、ブラウザー上からアップロードが完了したかを確認した際は、当該のファイルは表示されませんでした。

    *.tmp
    同期フォルダー上からアップロードを実施いたしましたが、同期フォルダー上で "同期中" の矢印のマークが回転したままの状態となり、同期が完了しない動作を確認いたしました。
    また、タスクバー上の同期アイコンはエラーが表示されず、"OneDrive は最新の状態です" と表示されております。

    上述の、従来の同期クライアント (Groove.exe) で "無効なファイルの種類" として指定されているファイルについては、新しい同期クライアント (OneDrive.exe) を使用した場合にも同期が正常に完了していないように見受けられるため、新しい同期クライアント (OneDrive.exe) 側の制限事項の公開情報にも記載していただくか、または新しい同期クライアント (OneDrive.exe) の制限事項に含まれていない理由などについて詳細を記載していただくようお願いいたします。

    I tested the uploading behavior of files stated as Invalid file types in a support article for Groove.exe, using with OneDrive.exe. Followings are the verification results I’ve got.

    <Results>
    *.laccdb、*.tpm、thumbs.db、EhThumbs.db、thumbs.db

    Once we finish the sync in the sync folder, normally the folder should get "green check mark"…

  12. 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.

  14. Mass file deletion notifications Language

    Mass file deletion notifications in OneDrive for Business and SharePoint are currently sent in the Default Language for the Site not the user's own Language. This is confusing for the end user. It's not possible to change the Default Language after a Site is Created. These notifications should be sent in the Default Language for the User's Profile, not the Site Default.

  15. 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!

  16. Implement a feature to restrict sharing among tenant users.

    Implement a feature to restrict sharing among tenant users.
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business の共有について、現在組織内のユーザーは制御できないが、ユーザーが共有時に所属している部署、あるいはチーム、または特定のユーザーのみ選択可能にする機能の追加を要望いたします。

    Currently in OneDrive for Business sharing feature, we cannot restrict users within our organization from sharing items.

    For security reasons, when sharing items among internal users, implement the feature that allows users who attempt to share an item with others to share the item with only the department/team (or specific users) they belong to at that moment.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  18. 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.

  19. Implement a feature to import the sync setting from another PC

    ■Title(件名):

    Implement a feature to import the sync setting from another PC
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    現在、OneDrive for Business ならびに SharePoint Online で共有されたフォルダーの同期を実施する際、共有元のフォルダーにアクセスして同期を実施する必要がある。
    複数端末で同期設定を実施する場合、上記操作を実施するのに時間がかかるため、設定済み PC 内の同期内容をエクスポートし、別 PC に同期設定情報をインポートする機能の追加を希望します。

    To sync folders which are shared by OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online, users need to access the original folders first and then perform the sync. It takes time if you want to perform sync setting at multiple devices, therefore, we hope the feature will be implemented to export the sync settings of a PC and then import the settings to another PC.

    Thank you for your consideration.
