  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…

          現在は監査ログにて上記内容を管理していますが、上述の機能を拡張いただけると大きく作業効率の向上が見込めるため機能の拡張を希望致します。

          We would like to see the feature to restrict file replacement in OneDrive for Business.

          Multiple users are using our organization’s OneDrive for Business to share our files, and file replacement for one item by some uses is happened frequently, eventually multiple users have different version (latest and previous) for one file.

          We trace the latest file (and owner) with using audit log, but our work will be more productive if we are able to on/off file replacement feature.

          Thank…

                  • Share links dangerously default to view and edit

                    Copied wholesale from another link as it appears to be archived:
                    https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive-archive/suggestions/15445719-share-links-dangerously-default-to-view-and-edit

                    File sharing currently defaults to creating a link with both view AND edit permissions. This link is retained, without any indication to the user, even when the user deselects the allow edit permissions box.

                    This is a VERY dangerous security flaw because some search engines are capable of discovering these links by brute force. I had one of my excel files completely *nuked* by an anonymous rando that had found the view+edit link that I never knew had been created (even though I only ever explicitly shared a…

                      I am thinking of sharing the files among the users of OneDrive for Business's tenant.

                      At this moment, there is a possibility that the data leak might be caused by a simple share even within company user, and therefore I hope the feature to be available that could enable to make a limit on the file share among the users of a tenant so that an admin could execute the restriction for shared files.

                                  iPad を除く、iPhone や Android のモバイルデバイスにて、ブラウザーから OneDrive for Business へサインインを行い、データの共有操作をすると、リンクの送信ウィンドウが自動的に終了し、データを共有することができない現象が発生するため、改善してほしい。

                                  When signing in to OneDrive for Business from a browser on a mobile device of iPhone or Android excluding the iPad and performing data sharing operation, the link send window is automatically terminated. This behavior prevents users from sharing data and it needs to be fixed.

                                  Thank you for your consideration.

                                  • default share dialog on OD4B doesn't allow entering "everyone except external users"

                                    When you click on share in OD4B, the dialog only allows getting links that work for everyone in the organization. But it doesn't allow you to enter "everyone except external users" when you want to share with everyone in teh company. The problem is that sometimes you want to change the permissions on the document so that everyone in the organization has access to it, but you don't want to send an email. There is currently no way to do that through the default share dialog.

                                    you can do that through the details pane which allows you to enter "everyone…

                                    • Ability to email and text people when sharing files

                                      Was thinking it be great to have the ability to not just email shared content with participants, but also to text them. I am using remind and constant contact. My open rate on texting people vs emailing people to respond on shared files is so much higher. I think people respond best to text than email.

                                      • Acceso a todos tus archivos de la nube desde la PC pero sin descargarlos localmente

                                        Debería haber una opción que permita ver todos los archivos y carpetas de OneDrive en la carpeta de la PC sin necesidad de que estén descargados en la PC, seria algo como un acceso directo, por así decirlo, y que solo se descarguen temporalmente si se requiere abrir el archivo. Seria una forma de trabajar con los discos sólidos de poca capacidad, de esta forma no se mantienen sino en un buffer temporal ciertos archivos consultados en el momento. Actualmente conocemos que existe una única opción que es evitar que se descarguen carpetas o archivos de nuestro OneDrive a la…

                                        • Have trouble renaming local versions of shared Onedrive data. Would be nice to be able to rename locally to organize.

                                          Have trouble renaming local versions of shared Onedrive data. Would be nice to be able to rename locally to organize. We "Add to my one drive" and sync all our local version to the office Onedrive cloud. Can't retitle the local versions without messing with the sync.

                                          Also, seems that Onedrive is not compatible with syncing some titles and it is hard to determine what is wrong with this title: IMG_4453.CR2
