  1. Issue where users cannot share with invited guest users from the sync client

    ■Title(件名):
    ユーザーが招待したゲストユーザーに、同期クライアントから共有できない事象について
    Issue where users cannot share with invited guest users from the sync client


    ■Description(内容):
    ユーザーがブラウザー上から外部のユーザーをゲストユーザーとして招待したあと、登録されたゲストユーザーへ同期クライアントから共有しようとした場合に、[完全一致が見つかりません] というエラーが表示されて共有出来ない事象が発生する場合があります。回避策はあるものの、管理者側でのゲストユーザーのアカウントを確認したり、共有をブラウザーから行う必要があり、一般ユーザーが外部のユーザーを招待したり同期クライアントからの共有を行うことが多い環境では運用上望ましくありません。
    ゲストユーザーを登録する場合のアカウントを適切に登録する、または同期クライアントから共有の際にメールアドレスで組織内での名前解決が出来るよう機能の改善を希望します。

    There are confirmed issues where sometimes if a user invites an external user as a guest user via the browser, and then attempts to share with that user, now registered as a guest user, using the sync client, the error “Exact match not found” is shown and they cannot share.
    Even though there are workarounds, it is necessary to check guest user accounts on the admin side, and share via the browser, which is not appropriate for an…

  3. Enable the display of files I have shared within the OneDrive sync app

    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive 同期アプリにて共有したファイルを表示できるようにしたい。
    Enable the display of files I have shared within the OneDrive sync app


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive 同期アプリで、共有したファイルを表示させたい場合、共有用のフォルダを作り、フォルダー毎に同期の設定が必要であり手間である。

    In the OneDrive sync app, if you want to see files you have shared, you need to create a folder specially for sharing and set the sync settings for each folder, which takes a lot of work.
    Please add a way to see files which are shared within regular OneDrive folders.

  4. File Request expiration policy serperate from Anyone links

    Currently the File Request expiration is the same as that set for Anyone links. But often you want to set the Anyone links expiration to a few weeks and we would like the File Request expiration to be indefinite. Otherwise if you use the File Request feature you have to keep sharing a link if you want this for a long term process.

  5. Behavior when sharing with personal OneDrive

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    個人用 OneDrive に共有した際の動作
    Behavior when sharing with personal OneDrive


    ■Description(内容):
    利用するアカウントに共有されたファイルは、[共有] よりアクセスが可能可です。
    しかしながら、法人用アカウントにて作成し共有されたファイルは、個人用の [共有] には表示されません。
    さらなる製品の利便性向上のため、法人 => 個人、もしくは個人 => 法人の場合でも、[共有] に表示されるよう機能の拡張を要望します。

    You can access files that have been shared with the account in use using “Shared”.
    However, files created and shared on a business account do not show in the “Shared” area of the personal account.
    In order to improve the usability of these products, please make it so that files show up in “Shared” for both business -> personal and personal -> business sharing cases.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    内部ユーザー同士の共有にて、編集の許可を制限したい
    I want to restrict editing on inter-user internal sharing


    ■Description(内容):

    There is no way to restrict editing by default for sharing between users in a tenant on OneDrive for Business.
    Since this requires sharing users to uncheck the “Allow editing” box each time, please add a way to restrict the editing option by default.

  10. Replace documents such as PDF with a new version but keep the same shared links

    The ability to be able to replace any document with an updated version without having to replace previosuly shared links should be way at the top of the priority list. Google Drive has provided this functionality for years and I'm absolutely astounded that this isn't supported by OneDrive. Time to step into the 21st Centruy Microsoft!!

  14. Shared/Collaborative album features similar to Google Photos

    Now that Google Photos free storage is a thing of the past, it is an excellent opportunity for OneDrive to shine. As OneDrive Premium features, I would like the following to be implemented to be on par with Google Photos:

    1/ Collaborative/shared albums - Google Photos had this since inception and it is a great feature to invite collaborators to add photos to a shared album. There is an existing request here: https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/913531-onedrive-sharing-collaboration/suggestions/7160581-co-authored-albums

    2/ Partner sharing -
    Enter or select an email address. You can then invite someone with a Microsoft Account.
    Select which photos to add to your partner…

  17. Synchronization of files "shared with me" in One Drive Windows explorer

  18. Option for SharePoint Online doc libs to disable "Add shortcut to OneDrive"

    If I disable "Offline Client Availability" on a SharePoint Online doc lib, I still see the option to "Add shortcut to OneDrive", however if I click on it, I get an error message saying that the administrator has disabled this functionality. But, I can still see the shortcut, and access the library in the OneDrive web interface. I would like a way to disable the option completely.

  19. when unsyncing from one drive, give the person the choice whether to delete from computer or one drive

    currently laptops are set up automatically syncing whether we like it or not, and whether we know/understand or not. Then when you select files/folders you dont want to sync, it automatically deletes them from the pc/laptop, keeping them on the cloud, instead of giving customers the choice where to keep them. I would like to un-sync and leave the files on my laptop.

    Also, this option needs to be an separate opt in checkbox - not forcing anyone who wishes to take the time to provide feedback with being spammed as a result "and to notify me about product updates"
