  1. "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…

  2. 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.

  3. Allow the sync directory to be changed for individual folders on OneDrive for Business

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Business でフォルダー単位で同期場所を変更できるような機能の拡充要望
    Allow the sync directory to be changed for individual folders on OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):
    現在の機能として、OneDrive for Business はアカウント単位での同期が基本となっているため、同期場所の変更はアカウント単位で行う必要があります。OneDrive for Business に保存しているフォルダーごとに、同期場所の変更ができないため、フォルダー単位で同期場所の変更ができるような機能の実装を要望します。

    Currently, syncing is based on individual accounts, and therefore the sync directory can only be changed on a per-account level. Since it is not possible to specify a different sync directory for different folders saved on OneDrive for Business, we would ask that you make this possible.

  4. No error message showing that the uploaded file in OneDrive is corrupted.

    When we tried to download the uploaded files in OneDrive and used the File Compare, we found out that the files from OneDrive are corrupted. There is no error message or sign that they are corrupted. It is more better to have an error message or warning that the uploaded file is corrupted than downloading it before realizing that it has a problem.

  5. Request files requirement for "Anyone Links" folder edit rights

    Request files not shaping up as previewed

    For security reasons our company has limited "anyone" links to view for files and folders. Unfortunately to use Request Files requires "anyone" links have edit rights on folders. Why can't the feature work with "specific people"? Why does this feature require changing a global security setting to use?

    Your preview materials state that uploaders would not see anything but would just see the area where they can upload. But making a security change that would impact more than just this type of link (request files) is not what we had hoped to see.

  6. "Request files" is not available

    If I try to use "Request File" that was rolled out in November 2019,
    The message "Anyone links with folder edit" needs to be enabled " is displayed and is not available.

    My organization doesn't currently allow “anyone with tne link".
    Imagine a scene where many members in an organization submit reports to OneDrive.
    In the case of a shared folder, participants can view each other's reports,
    which creates risks such as data tampering and accidentally deleting other people's files,
    which is not good.

    If “Request files” are available in your organization, the problem will be solved.
    I hope the…

  7. Hide, Remove, or Disable Shared Libraries in OneDrive

    I have hidden a SharePoint Library, however it can be viewed on the Shared Libraries section of OneDrive. How do I disable this? The hidden library should not be viewed by users at all. Ale so, the default SharePoint view set to show no items in the library is not what shows when the library is accessed from OneDrive. All files can be viewed in OneDrive which should not be the case. I will accept any workaround anyone may have, but there should be uniformity in how files and data are configured across applications.

    When folders in OneDrive for Business are deleted, those folders will disappear immediately on the owner's OneDrive for Business screen, but the names for those same folders will continue to be displayed in "Shared With Me" on the shared party's side.
    Please correct this so that those folders will disappear immediately on the shared party's side as well.

    I want to be able to stop sharing multiple documents with one or just a few clicks. I have shared 96 files and folders and want to stop sharing all without having to go into every single sharing.

  15. Delete warning is not good

    The warning when i delete files in SharepointOnline(SPO) lib from OneDrive is not clear enough as i see it. The files delete also deletes files and folders in SPO, and by that deleting files for all users, this should be very clear. We have a lot of users who wants to stop syncing files but do the mistake of deleting files.....

  17. 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.

  18. Support and Recovery Assistant - Add OneDrive B2B Sync External Sharing Troubleshooting Diagnostic

    The OneDrive B2B Sync feature has several settings that need to be configured on both tenants in order for the OneDrive client to establish a successful sync between the two organizations.

    Example of a list of settings that are needed are posted below.

    It would help if a support diagnostic was added to the current Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant (Sara) tool under the OneDrive diagnostics so we can quickly check the settings on both tenants to verify both are configured correctly to establish a successful B2B OneDrive Sync.

    Florida (subfolder of folder "America")
    Chicago (subfolder of folder "America")

    Album "Kids' Pictures"
    Michael (subfolder of folder "Kids' Pictures")
    2015 (subfolder of folder "Michael")
    01 January (subfolder of folder "2015")
