  1. Access Sharepoint shared folder in 'Shared with Me' in App

    If I share a folder within a SharePoint library to a user (who has other access to the libary), I cannot see this folder in the "Shared with Me" when using either the Outlook for iOS or Android App. The folder DOES appear when using a browser so the permissions and access work.

    Furthermore, if I open the email invitation to the shared folder on a phone/tablet and click on the link, the device will open OneDrive and into the shared folder. However, if I return to OneDrive at a later date, there is no way to get back to…

  2. Sharing files from 3rd party apps - Include option to search for folder

    Situation:
    I often correspond with clients over text & Whatsapp. They send me important information that I need to save on their client folders. Each client has a subfolder on Our Company's OneDrive Site.

    Problem:
    There is no option to search for the folder when uploading the file (e.g. pdf/screenshot from Whatsapp/Text) from a 3rd party app to OneDrive.
    I can only get to the client's folder by scrolling.
    We have a few thousand clients and it is not feasible to scroll to the client’s name every time I need to upload something to his file.
    It creates additional admin…

  4. prevent sharing

    Block a security group from sharing externaly

    As a university we would like to have the ability to prevent specific security groupd from external sharing from their OneDrive for Business. They are in a security group, so being able to limit sharing by group would be great.

  7. Sync OneDrive Photo Album and Windows Photos App tags / people recognition

    Windows 10 Photos App is great!
    I would need the information / tags / people recognition synced to OneDrive - so the information is not local only and can be shared with other PCs / people as well (and be backed up in cloud)

  10. Enable setting a password for files in OneDrive for Business when sharing files with external users

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Business の外部共有について

    Enable setting a password for files in OneDrive for Business when sharing files with external users


    ■Description(内容):
    個人用の OneDrive で共有する際は、当該のファイルを選択し、[共有] をクリックすると [パスワードの設定] と表示され、ファイルにパスワードを設定し共有が可能。
    OneDrive for Business には、そのような機能がないため、同じようにパスワードの設定をかけ共有できるよう機能の拡充希望。

    When sharing items via personal OneDrive, as users select the file and click [Share], they can set password for the shared files from [Set Password:] menu. This option is currently not available for OneDrive for Business.

    For improvement of usability, add setting password option to OneDrive for Business as well.

    Thank you for your consideration

  11. OneDrive Personal Shared Folder Email Digest Summary

    SUB-FOLDERS and FILES added by OTHER USERS in a FOLDER THAT I SHARED does not reflect in the notification email - only changes to existing files reflects in the summary.

    Even though other users owner of the files - I am still the owner of the folder - and this qualifies as changes to this folder surely.

    If anyone has a workaround in the interim then please inform - support says feature not supported.

    ANOTHER ISSUE:

    the subject of email says "... and 10 others edited your shared files"

    the number appears to be the number of edits - not…

  15. Notify shared users when files/photos added to shared folder

    Users are notified when a folder is shared with them. But if files/photos are added after the folder has been shared the user is not notified that there is something new to look at.
    A good example is sharing a photo album with family where photos would be added to the album over time.

    Can some option be added to notify shared users when a folder has had new items added to it?

  19. Option to Disable Group Sharing

    In the tenant configuration spaces for controlling the internal/external and default sharing options - please include a stricter "internal only" sharing control that filters out internal security groups from being selected to share files/folders with. In our organization we have SharePoint/Teams for team collaboration therefore the notion of needing to share a personal OneDrive file with a security group usually implies that is collaboration work. We would like users to have to manually pick individuals within the organization only.
