  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…

        • Sharing status in onedrive for business

          Weather we share files with internal or external users, sharing status shows only "Shared". It would be helpful, If it shows sharing type with text or any other visual indicator.

          The same status visual indicator in "shared by me" page and in windows explorer icon would help reviewing all my external access.

              • Mass file deletion notifications Language

                Mass file deletion notifications in OneDrive for Business and SharePoint are currently sent in the Default Language for the Site not the user's own Language. This is confusing for the end user. It's not possible to change the Default Language after a Site is Created. These notifications should be sent in the Default Language for the User's Profile, not the Site Default.

                  • Allow Syncing of Files Shared with Me

                    I would really like the ability to sync the files that people share with me to Windows Explorer like I can sync the documents that I share with others.

                    It would make accessing them much quicker and I honestly don't understand why it isn't already a feature.

                        現在の用途として会社のファイルをOneDrive for Businessを使用しての共有をしている。
                        多数のユーザーがおり同一ファイルを誰が置き換えることが頻繁にあります。
                        その際置き換える前のファイルを保存しているユーザー、置き換えた後の正しいファイルを保存しているユーザーの2通りがいるという状況になるため
                        ファイルの置き換え自体を禁止できる機能を希望しています。
                        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…

                              I really miss a common Family folder from O365 Home, where we could put all contents, warranty papers, service contracts, invoices, photos etc, that we would like to share with all (and only) family members, without going through the standard share process every time or using a public link. I wouldn't mind if this would cost in reducing the private storage space.

                                    We would like to have the ability to "add to OneDrive" for shared files on OneDrive for Business accounts, not just OneDrive personal.

                                    • Allow setting the expiration date when creating shared links

                                      Allow setting the expiration date when creating shared links
                                      ***************
                                      ■Description(内容):
                                      現在、ファイルやフォルダーに対して外部ユーザーがアクセス可能な共有リンクを作成する場合、誰でもアクセス可能な匿名の共有リンクを作成した場合のみ、有効期限を設定することができる。
                                      特定のユーザーのみ利用可能な共有リンクには有効期限を設定することができないため、期間を指定して共有リンクを作成できるよう機能を追加して欲しい。

                                      Currently, if we want to set the expiration date for sharing links that external users can access, the sharing links need to be anonymous links, accessible from anyone know the links.
                                      It means that it is not possible to set the expiration date for shared links which can be accessed from only specific users.
                                      To solve this problem, allow us to create shared links with specifying the time duration to be shared.

                                      Thank you for your consideration.

                                      • Additional information (apart from name) on sharing

                                        We have a Problem on sharing documents with others.While entering a name in sharing page, some suggestions comes up.

                                        The problem is, that some people are named the same. For example some people are called Thomas Müller. On sharing all of them are mentioned and it isn't possible to see, which entry it the right one.

                                        It would be nice, if a user can see department or something else from Active Directory on sharing suggestion.
