  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. 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.

  6. 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. To avoid human error that someone upload in the wrong organization folders, I would like to see the feature to define and select uploading folder automatically based on file name or the feature to show an error message to users when they upload files in wrong folder.

  8. 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.

  10. Allow shared files to be placed in the personal vault.

    The personal vault is a great new addition to one drive. Providing a capability to share documents in the vault would be great. I am thinking probably like legal documents with your spouse would be a good example

    For now, OneDrive app's file upload/auto-uploading feature confirms that the “Uploading” is not displaying if there are many files existed. By not displaying the number of remaining files, there is a difficulty to confirm the required time and upload completion timing by users.

  12. 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!

  13. 'Allow download' option when sharing a folder

    It would be very useful to provide the 'allow download' selection toggle within link settings when sharing a folder with others to prevent them from downloading a local copy of any of the files within the folder - similar to how the 'allow editing' selection option works.

    I purchased onedrive for business specifically because I was led to believe I would be able to do this but was informed today that currently it is only available for office 365 (word, exel etc) individual shared documents.

    I was directed to a previous idea posted and wondered if there was any update…

  14. Add a "write" rights option to a shared folder.

    Create "write-only" access to a shared folder which would allow private uploads viewable only by the owner or those with "read" rights. Example: We work with over a thousand nonprofits that submit bylaws for editing. Rather than creating over a thousand folders (one for each nonprofit) we could create one repositiory folder with "write" access only.

  17. Public (without logging in) upload to a shared folder

    Make it possible to create a share forlder with Bill, send the link to him at bill@gates.com and let Bill just click on the link and upload/create files to that folder without signing. Folders could also be password protected so that Bill needs to know that to access the share.

  18. Option to add 'Shared with me' links to my Files folder structure

    A common request from our OneDrive for Business users is the ability to add 'Shared with me' files to their Files folder structure, similar to the Google Drive 'Add to My Drive' option.

    There is a workaround which consists in coypying the link to a shared with me file or folder and then add add it as a New > Link in Files. However this is a bit clunky so it would be nice to be able to do it in one click, with the ability to pick a destination folder.

  19. Sharing (really) secure

    There is still no difference between email and link sharing in OneDrive. Whether by mail or by link, the person to whom I send the email or the link can, if it wishes, transfer the link or the email to a person with whom I do not want to share my documents oneDrive . The solution of password does not change anything since if the person transfers the mail or the link, it will give the password also.
    There should be, when I share by email, an identity check when connecting to my oneDrive documents. As for the oneDrive business…

  20. Allow shared, read-only Excel documents to be edited during session, but not saved.

    Allow sharing of Excel documents in a way that will allow users to make temporary changes to the document but prevent those changes from being saved to the shared file. For example, a worksheet that performs calculations or generates a report based on user input.
