  2. 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.…

  6. Allow files to be uploaded from other websites directly with the link

    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

  9. Read only access at folder and file level -useful for accessing archived data

    This is traditional database access idea so users or customers can view documents but can't ***** with carefully curated data on OneDrive - so no edits, updates, deletes

    ■Title(件名):

    Provide the OneDrive for Business standard feature to check the detailed user information who shared items


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business にてアイテムを共有した場合、アイテムの所有者のみが共有相手の人数や詳細を確認できるが、ファイルの共有状況を所有者以外のユーザーでも把握したいと考えている。
    そのため、OneDrive for Business 標準機能として、共有アイテムの所有者以外のユーザーからも、共有相手の詳細を確認する機能を実装してほしい。

    When sharing an item on OneDrive for Business with others, only item owner can see the details of shared user information including the number of shared users.

    It would be nice if every user, not only an item owner, could see the detailed information of users who are shared the items, by using OneDrive for Business standard feature.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    To manage the storage of OneDrive for Business within our tenant, please allow us to decide the size of storage for each user within the tenant freely.

  13. Consistently accurate naming of Office 365 links to OneDrive for Business

    The Office 365 home page and app launcher - to name two examples - include links to OneDrive for Business, but the button says, simply, OneDrive.

    My understanding is that OneDrive is a separate product, intended for personal non-corporate use, and calling one by the other's name can mislead, cause confusion, and hinder adoption, amongst other issues.

    If agreed, please add the missing words "for Business" in the buttons/shortcuts that point to OneDrive for Business and not to OneDrive throughout Office 365.

    There are enough names and name changes in the world of Microsoft, so let's use names accurately and…

  15. Make it work properly when working from different machines

    I have two excel spreadsheets that are updated by several devices and the failure rate of the sync is annoyingly high, Often I go in and it converts theworking copy to match the old one I have just opened on the machine I am then working on so I then have to spend time looking through the history to find an earlier version from another machine and restore, or reenter missing data. Other times I get a message to say the sync has failed - do I want to make a copy.

  17. Allow individual external settings in Office 365 admin center

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Office 365 管理センターにてユーザーの外部共有が反映しない

    Allow individual external settings in Office 365 admin center


    ■Description(内容):
    Office 365 管理センターからアクティブなユーザーを指定し、 "OneDrive の設定 " から 外部共有を個別に制限すると、画面上反映されたように見えるも画面を更新すると元の設定に戻ってしまう。
    PowerShell コマンドレットにて同様の設定が可能も、ブラウザー上からの操作が反映しないため、改善してほしい。

    As we pick an active user on Office 365 admin center and turn on external sharing individually on OneDrive for Business settings, it seems like it’s properly applied. No errors, everything looks nice while external sharing is actually not applied as I refresh the screen.

    For improvement of usability and manageability, allow individual external settings on a browser, without using PowerShell cmdlet.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  18. RMS on OneDrive

    Sharing is a very good functionality for private as well as for business use. But it leaves the owner without control what further happen with the shared information. E.g when further shared, dowloade and stored elsewhere etc.

    Why not amend the possibility to set IRM protection on OneDrive?
    At least for OneDrive for business (I.e. In a similar way as it already can be done for a SharePoint library.)

    Should also reduce consequences of a user mistake.

  19. Track number of file downloads

    It would be fantastic to include a way to see how many times a file has been downloaded. This should be a basic function for any file sharing service. People use OneDrive for business purposes and would obviously want to know if people are downloading certain files. Such a simple feature would be easy to add to the details of the file.

    This suggestion has been made for both OneDrive and Google Drive, and the only responses they have ever received is "This is an interesting feature and we'll consider adding it." I don't understand how something so basic could…
