  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!

  2. About searching for people in the OneDrive sync client

    About searching for people in the OneDrive sync client


    ■Description(内容):
    ブラウザーの OneDrive for Business で、ファイルの 3 点リーダー […] から [共有] を選択し共有リンクを発行する際に、UPN の検索以外にも日本語でユーザー名を入力すればユーザーの検索が可能ですが、OneDrive 同期クライアントでファイルを右クリックし [共有] と進んでも、ユーザー名では共有できない動作です。
    この動作は同期クライアントのひと検索にて日本語検索が出来ず、正しくユーザーが検索されないことが影響していますが、同期クライアントにおいても、ファイルを右クリックし 3 点リーダー […] - [共有] にてユーザーを検索する際に日本語検索が可能な機能の拡充を希望いたします。

    In OneDrive for Business in a browser, when sharing a file via its ‘…’ and ‘Share’, it is possible to search not only for UPNs but also use Japanese to search for users, but in the OneDrive client, right clicking and selecting ‘Share’ does not allow sharing via name search.
    This means that you cannot search for people in Japanese in the…

  4. File Request without the need for external sharing

    File Request on OneDrive currently requires that external sharing is turned on, even if we only want to use it internally within our organisation. Please can you look into the possibility of enabling File Request for internal only requests.

  5. OneDrive Synchronisation and efficiency

    It is good that we have the option to sync the files on our desktop.

    However, it seems like some of the functions are not coded in a very efficient way.

    For example, when copy and paste a (big 1gb) file, OneDrive will start downloading the file into the local drive before making a copy for upload.

    Is this necessary?

    Can commands such as copy and paste, unzip etc be mirrored on the cloud without the need to download (fill up your local drive) and upload (compete for bandwidth)?

  6. 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…

  7. External guest access - do not redirect to account registration

    When we try to share a document with an external guest, usually invited when they are going to access, it asks for a password and as they have never accessed the Tenant, they still don't have an account and a password defined, so they get lost there, they have to click on the link I forgot the password to be able to complete the registration in Tenant and gain access.

    I think this is stupid from MS, because if the user does not yet exist in Tenant, the system had to identify and send the guest to a registration page…

  8. Improve warning message when copying sharing links to email message

    Point to note is that this only appears when external sharing within your tenant is set to New and Existing guests or more restrictive. It doesn't apply when most permissive is Anyone.
    Currently, when sharing a link from OneDrive using Outlook, you receive an error message
    This link isn't associated with the account you're sending from."
    It turns out that this is simply a warning and the link will work if the recipient is one of those on the To or CC list. It prevents the link being forwarded on, which is what we want in our situation.

    The proposal…

  9. Behavior when sharing copied links

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    リンクをコピーにて共有する際の挙動について
    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.

  10. 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.

  11. I want to use shortcuts with OneDrive syncing

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive 同期でショートカットを使用したい
    I want to use shortcuts with OneDrive syncing


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive 同期を行い、エクスプローラー (ファインダー) でショートカット (エイリアス) を作成した場合、作成したユーザー自身は利用することができます。
    しかし、ショートカット (エイリアス) を OneDrive フォルダー内に作成しても、他のユーザーがアクセスすることはできません。
    フォルダーの階層が深い場合、ファイルやフォルダーを探すことが工数なため、ファイルの移動ではなく、ショートカットを作成して共有する機能の実装を希望します。

    If you create a shortcut (or alias) in Explorer (or Finder) after syncing, the user who created it can use it.
    However, even if the shortcut/alias is created in the OneDrive folder, other users cannot use it.
    If the file hierarchy is very deep, it takes a lot of work to find files and folders, so please make it possible to create and share shortcuts, rather than moving files.

  12. Option to turn off the email notification from the commenter side

    Option to turn off the email notification from the commenter side in excel, email should be sent on to @, not to everyone.

    there is an option to turn off notification from the receiver side, but it cannot be that i have to ask all stakeholders to turn off their notification for that reason, this should be from the commenter side.

    Thank you !

  13. "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…

  15. Shorten URLs for sharing properly

    Shorten URLs for sharing properly so the entire URL string is short not just an abbreviated "onedrive" and drop the ! from the string, it breaks the URL. How this kind of work gets through QA is mind blowing.

  16. 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.

  19. Completely separate Onedrive and Sharepoint sharing settings please

    Please consider decoupling Sharepoint and Onedrive sharing settings and allowing Onedrive to have more permissive settings than Sharepoint. We have users switching to Dropbox, etc., in order to accommodate this need when really Onedrive could take care of it if this was possible.
