  1. 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.

  2. Ensure multiple people can read documents without synchronization issues

    Referring ticket # 17174503

    "When two or more people are working on a document at the same time, they might make changes that conflict with each other. Conflicts can occur when one person works offline and then saves the document to the server. Conflicts can also occur when two people work on the same part of a document at exactly the same time. When edits conflict, the file would display a notification the next time that a user tries to save the document. The conflicts must be resolved before you can save the document to the cloud.
    In OneDrive sync…

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  10. Remove un-synced library from explorer

    I stopped syncing a shared document library but the folder remained in my file explorer.

    Because the un-synced folder remained in explorer I accidentally deleted the other synced library, which deleted all of the files in the library. Removing the un-synced folder from explorer immediately would prevent this user error in the future.

  11. OneDrive for Business External Sharing permission set to "Anyone"

    Please allow to set OneDrive for Business External Sharing to "Anyone" without changing SharePoint External Sharing permission.

    Currently, we cannot change OneDrive for Business External Sharing permission to "Anyone" if SharePoint External Sharing permission is set not to share with External organization.

    We want to enable this feature so we can set Expiration Date and Password when sharing files to Anyone thru OneDrive for Business.

    I’m using divided folders based on each shared external organization.

  13. Prevent shared PDF files from being downloaded

    Blocking the Download for Office Documents works great.

  14. sync seems to take forever - be nice if you could see some kind of status/ priority of the files in sync and then manipulate them

    thats it... view and be able to decide the priority of syncing files to enable more efficient working.

  15. Request File Feature button should be HIDDEN if disabled

    The new Request File Feature requires Anonymous link sharing. If this is disable the button still appears and instead provides users with an error, making them think the feature is broken. The Request Files button should be hidden or grayed out if unavailable.

  16. AutoCAD DWG support for External References (XREF's) and Civil 3D DWG support for Data References (XDREF's and Data Shortcuts)

    AutoCAD DWG support for External References (XREF's) and Civil 3D DWG support for Data Shortcuts (XDREF's)

    File sharing DWG's in the cloud does not work if the files i share on SharePoint/One Drive all contain broken references that cannot be access, attached or resolved in the cloud location. Cloud storage time sync'd FTP of a single file DWG is NOT Sharing & Collaboration with my CAD users and definitely not my clients.

    Note: An external reference can be a drawing file, image, PDF, or one of several other file types. An xref is an external reference that's specifically a DWG…

  18. pop out notification

    It would be great if there was a pop out notification (like dropbox), when a new file is added or changed, through another pc, in common use. I think this would be a real advantage, because you don t have to search the changes, and you are notified in real time. Its a pity to have both Onedrive and Dropbox, just for this.

    There is a problem with file sharing on OneDrive.
    I am using a personal one drive and a business one drive (given by the university) at the same time.
    After another individual user shared a folder for my two identities, Personal OneDrive could accept the share, but Business OneDrive could not accept the share.
    Why does this happen?
    If you check the shared email and click the 'Accept' button, you will be prompted to sign in to your OneDrive account. I'm connected to OneDrive for Business with the same ID, but when I click the 'Accept' button in the email…

  20. 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!
