  1. Provide a feature to restrict sharing between different domains.

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    共有の設定について

    Provide a feature to restrict sharing between different domains.


    ■Description(内容):
    同じ、テナント名において、ドメインを 2 つ作成します。
    サブドメイン としたドメインに対して、主のドメインのユーザーより誤って、サブドメインのユーザーに対して共有をできないように、同じテナントのドメインにて、制御できるような機能の実装を希望いたします。

    同じテナント名でドメインを2つ作成
    主ドメインのユーザーが誤ってサブドメインのユーザーに共有しないよう、異なるドメイン間での共有を禁止する機能を実装してほしい

    In case there are two different domains under the same tenant name, add a feature to prohibit sharing items between those two domains. We believe it will help to prevent users in the main domain from sharing items with subdomain users accidentally.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  2. Don't separate "files" and "shared"

    When sharing files with my team, I have to remember if I created the file or if someone else did in order to know where to find it. All files should just be in the same place and clearly labeled by who was the originator with ability to sort/filter by that field.

  4. create a web page from an album in order to share pictures.

    My family just had a reunion, and of course we are sharing photos. My brother uses Icloud to share his. He does this by clicking an option to share as a web page. This is very convenient to share with people who don't have a MSFT ID.

  5. Have a Read only pop up for PDF Forms already in use

    I currently share our many PDF forms and multiple people edit them on mobile devices. If two people have one file open, there’s no warning that data could be compromised. Whoever closes out the file last will have their edits saved. I would love to see a Read only notification when trying to access the form so that there’s no confusion. Much like how Excel will give you that same type of warning so you don’t end up with lost data.

    Thanks for your consideration.

  6. Major Security Hole in O365 / OneDrive

    THE ISSUE:

    We have discovered what represents a Major Security Hole in O365 / OneDrive, where the domain group "Everyone except external users” is being granted Read permissions for new objects and child objects, a default process that can not be altered.

    The Steps to produce the scenario are as follows:


    1. From a user's OneDrive Go to Site Settings

    2. Under Site Administration, click on Site Libraries & Lists

    3. Create a new Object (Library, List, App or Sub-site)

    Permissions set for newly created objects (and their items) are:
    a. Owner of the site has Full or “Owner” rights
    b. Everyone except

  7. Sobre edición de documentos compartidos

    Sería bueno que cuando se comparte un documento y las otras personas pueden editar, se refleje si alguien los está editando y cuando lo hizo.
    Para así evitar las versiones en conflicto.

  9. Relative paths for synced drives

    The path to file on OneDrive start with C:\Users<username>\ so each user will have a different path. This breaks the connection to source files in AutoCAD Map, making the drawing unusable to anyone other than the creator.

    If the path could be relative or not include usernames we could use OneDrive to store our files.

  10. Guys, for next level in the China add a "simple-to-do" & "mobile&laptop-friendly" WECHAT app sharing option for files.

    People spend an average of 2-3h a day on wechat in China.
    It is one of the mostly used channels to share documents that aim for 1:1 or groups of people.
    It is fast.
    It is easily re-accessible.
    It can work on multiple devices.

  11. Warning for special characters in folder title

    There should be a small warning (same as in Windows) when editing a shared folder title, that there are no special characters allowed. We used a hashtag in a title and the folder couldn't be synced, both us and Microsoft support team spent days figuring out the problem.

  14. Remove access to all the subfolders with one click

    ParentFolder has tens of subfolders. Every subfolder is shared with a different person. I want to stop sharing the subfolders by clicking something like 'stop sharing the children' in the ParentFolder details pane. Now I have to go to every subfolder's details pane and remove the shared access there manually.

    We are aware that sometimes OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online Document Library is displayed in the classic UI as we access to those pages via shared links.

    We can switch the display back to the modern UI by changing browsers, clearing caches or a certain period of time pass.…

    I would like to upload some files from other Cloud storages to one drive directly. Not by downloading to my pc and then again uploading.
    Instead allow files to be uploaded to my drive through a link from other cloud storages
