    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive 同期アプリで、共有したファイルを表示させたい場合、共有用のフォルダを作り、フォルダー毎に同期の設定が必要であり手間である。
    通常利用するOneDrive のフォルダーにて共有したファイルも表示できる機能の拡充を希望します。

    In the OneDrive sync app, if you want to see files you have shared, you need to create a folder specially for sharing and set the sync settings for each folder, which takes a lot of work.
    Please add a way to see files which are shared within regular OneDrive folders.

  2. "Add to My OneDrive" option for folders shared between OneDrive for Business and OneDrive Personal

    When a folder is shared from a OneDrive Business Account to a OneDrive for Personal Account, there should be an option to add the folder to the OneDrive folder.

    Right now, the shared folder can only be accessed using the sharing link which is highly uncomfortable for collaboration.

    Example:

    A person X, who owns a OneDrive Business Account, wants to share documents and collaborate with his partners who have OneDrive Personal.
    Now, those partners can access the shared files only on the OneDrive website using the sharing link provided by the person X. Since it is more difficult to use…

    When creating a site connected to a Microsoft 365 group from [Create shared library] in OneDrive for Business, I'd like users with tenant administrator privileges to be able to select [Public] and [Private] in "Privacy settings" while non-administrators only to select [Private].
    Please make this possible so we can restrict users from freely creating public sites.

  5. Synchronization of files "shared with me" in One Drive Windows explorer

    It would be really useful to access the files that are shared with me directly from Windows explorer instead of accessing them only in the internet browser.

  6. Office apps Word, Excel slow saving when File Collaboration setting is ON in OneDrive

    Office apps Word and Excel are very slow the first time you save a document when the File Collaboration setting is ON in OneDrive. This is because Office saves the file to the cloud even if the file has not yet been shared. A better method would be to only save the file to the cloud first if the file has been shared, otherwise save the file to the local OneDrive folder and allow OneDrive to sync the file to the cloud.

    弊社は、社員が多いためメールの送受信の数も多く、重要なメールと切り分けるために不要なメールは減らしたいと考えております。

    We use notifications when sharing files on OneDrive for Business.
    There are many employees in the organization, so a lot of mails get sent around, and in order to allow the identification of important mails among them, we want to reduce the number of unnecessary mails being sent.
    If we turn notifications for file sharing off, then the number of mails will certainly be reduced, but there is then a risk that…

    Currently, syncing is based on individual accounts, and therefore the sync directory can only be changed on a per-account level. Since it is not possible to specify a different sync directory for different folders saved on OneDrive for Business, we would ask that you make this possible.

  10. No error message showing that the uploaded file in OneDrive is corrupted.

    When we tried to download the uploaded files in OneDrive and used the File Compare, we found out that the files from OneDrive are corrupted. There is no error message or sign that they are corrupted. It is more better to have an error message or warning that the uploaded file is corrupted than downloading it before realizing that it has a problem.

  13. Hide, Remove, or Disable Shared Libraries in OneDrive

    I have hidden a SharePoint Library, however it can be viewed on the Shared Libraries section of OneDrive. How do I disable this? The hidden library should not be viewed by users at all. Ale so, the default SharePoint view set to show no items in the library is not what shows when the library is accessed from OneDrive. All files can be viewed in OneDrive which should not be the case. I will accept any workaround anyone may have, but there should be uniformity in how files and data are configured across applications.

  14. Request files requirement for "Anyone Links" folder edit rights

    Request files not shaping up as previewed

    For security reasons our company has limited "anyone" links to view for files and folders. Unfortunately to use Request Files requires "anyone" links have edit rights on folders. Why can't the feature work with "specific people"? Why does this feature require changing a global security setting to use?

    Your preview materials state that uploaders would not see anything but would just see the area where they can upload. But making a security change that would impact more than just this type of link (request files) is not what we had hoped to see.

  15. "Request files" is not available

    If I try to use "Request File" that was rolled out in November 2019,
    The message "Anyone links with folder edit" needs to be enabled " is displayed and is not available.

    My organization doesn't currently allow “anyone with tne link".
    Imagine a scene where many members in an organization submit reports to OneDrive.
    In the case of a shared folder, participants can view each other's reports,
    which creates risks such as data tampering and accidentally deleting other people's files,
    which is not good.

    If “Request files” are available in your organization, the problem will be solved.
    I hope the…

  16. OneDrive client for Linux

    Many organisations employ the use of multiple Operating system environments for client facing services whilst also utilising the most out of their Office 365 / Microsoft 365 subscriptions. Unfortunately there are OneDrive sync clients for all but Linux.

    Granted Linux is a broad term, and for me personally I am looking for a native Linux client in the same sense as the MS Teams native Linux client.

    When folders in OneDrive for Business are deleted, those folders will disappear immediately on the owner's OneDrive for Business screen, but the names for those same folders will continue to be displayed in "Shared With Me" on the shared party's side.
    Please correct this so that those folders will disappear immediately on the shared party's side as well.
