  1. Do not force recipients of shared OneDrive Personal resources to sign-in!

    I wanted to share a photo album with friends and family but most were redirected away from the album to a sign-up/sign-in page for OneDrive. Not everyone has a Microsoft account and not everyone wants one!

  3. Allow External Users to Upload File within Forms

    After trying to talk to the MS Forms Team since the start of COVID-19, many users have been requesting the ability to allow external users to upload files within an MS Forms context. From my understanding that this is a technical issue with how access works within OneDrive/SharePoint that limits the ability to allow external users to upload files. This request has been in the works since April of 2017. An update in December of 2019 released the ability for internal users only. There has been no update since phase one of the feature.

    I would like to ask the…

  4. Behavior when sharing copied links

    *English follows Japanese

    Behavior when sharing copied links


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint 管理センターにて 既定のリンクの種類を "特定のユーザー" に設定しているが OneDrive for Business 上でリンクをコピーにて共有を行うとした際に "既存アクセス権を持つユーザー" でリンクがコピーされてしまうため、該当のリンクをそのまま相手に共有するとアクセスエラーとなり大変不便なため、既定値でリンクがコピーされる機能の改善を要望いたします。

    The default link type is set to “Specific people” in the SharePoint admin center, but when copying and sharing links on OneDrive for Business the link for “People with existing access” is copied, and since this results in the link giving an error to the recipient when they try to access it, please make it so that the link type set as the default gets copied in these situations.

  5. BUG SUBMISSION: Sharing on OneDrive Album is requiring Sign-on by Guest

    For the past couple of weeks, if I share a OneDrive album with a non-Microsoft account user, it very briefly shows them the album, but then quickly redirects them to the OneDrive sign-in site.

  6. Sync external OneDrive shared folders

    Allow users from different organization to add shared OneDrive folder with their computer (Windows/Mac). There could be additional folder "OneDrive - Name of external organization". Only challenge I see is that in case, user is working with multiple external organizations, it could be generating too many folders in File Explorer/Finder. But better this solution than nothing. Same folder could be used to synchronize files from external Teams (where I am invited as guest).

    If UPNs or mail addresses are changed, then sharing links from OneDrive for Business become unusable, and the users those items are shared with can no longer access them.
    Please add a system that automatically updates sharing links when OneDrive for Business URLs are changed due to UPN changes.

  8. "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…

  14. "Upload only" folder - without downloading, previewing or even listing permissions

    Our customer support must upload critical medical data to our R&D to troubleshoot our software. Our customer support should upload data to a SharePoint folder but mustn't have the permission to list or download content from there. Only certain users should be able to download the content.

    We try moving away processes from Box.com to SharePoint online but that feature is missing on SharePoint online.

    This helps all M365 users to transfer critical content from many to a few people to protect the data.

    Thank you!

    ■Description(内容):
    現時点の動作として、ブラウザーで OneDrive for Business にアクセスした場合は、ファイルおよびフォルダーの共有時に 2 バイト文字で共有先ユーザー検索を行うことが可能である。

  19. Option for SharePoint Online doc libs to disable "Add shortcut to OneDrive"

    If I disable "Offline Client Availability" on a SharePoint Online doc lib, I still see the option to "Add shortcut to OneDrive", however if I click on it, I get an error message saying that the administrator has disabled this functionality. But, I can still see the shortcut, and access the library in the OneDrive web interface. I would like a way to disable the option completely.

    ■Description(内容):
    「特定のユーザ」を指定してフォルダ共有した場合、共有されたユーザーは、ブラウザー上で共有フォルダを開くたびにメール アドレスへ送信される確認コードの入力を求められる挙動となっている。
    この方法だと、利用頻度の多いユーザにとって利便性が低下する。

    「リンクを知っているすべてのユーザー」を指定すると、指定したユーザー以外もアクセス可能となるためセキュリティが低下する。
    利便性とセキュリティのバランスが取れている共有機能を実装してほしい。

    If you share a folder with the “Specific people” setting, the users you share it with need to enter a confirmation code sent to their mail address when they access the shared folder.
    This method is inconvenient when sharing with users who use the folder often.
    If you use the “Everyone with the link” setting, users other than those specified can access it, which reduces security.
    Please add a setting that balances security and convenience.
