    外部のユーザーに動画を共有する場合に、動画のダウンロードを制限する機能の追加を希望します。

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

    *English follows Japanese

    ■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…

  5. Behavior when sharing with personal OneDrive

    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.

    通常利用するOneDrive のフォルダーにて共有したファイルも表示できる機能の拡充を希望します。

    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.

  9. Allow to sync files with different levels of priority

    The idea is to enable the user to decide to upload or sync important/urgent files first while non urgent ones will be uploaded later. This can be achieved by giving a priority status to the files (for example High, Normal and Low). It is the same approach used by torrent software when downloading multiple files.

  10. 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.

  11. OneDrive function, other than checking in/out, to provide exclusive control of file updates

    OneDrive function, other than checking in/out, to provide exclusive control of file updates


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive で共有しているファイルを複数のユーザーに共有し、各ユーザーに対して "編集" 以上の権限を割り当てる環境においての要望です。
    二重の更新を防止するため、一人のユーザーが開いている状態で別のユーザーが開いた場合に読み取り専用ファイルと認識させ、二人目以降のユーザーの Office クライアントに「このファイルは使用中です。」などのメッセージを表示、および当該メッセージには使用中のユーザー名を表示させる制御の実装を希望しています。
    チェック イン / チェック アウト機能で、チェック アウトしているユーザー以外がファイルを編集できないという最低限の制御が可能なことは確認していますが、運用上、都度チェック イン / チェック アウトの操作を行うことが困難なため、チェック イン / チェック アウト以外に、上記動作を可能とする機能の拡充を希望します。

    This request is for use in environments where files are shared via OneDrive with multiple users and each user is given editing or higher permissions.
    To prevent double updates, if one user has a file open and another then also opens it, it should be recognized as being read only, and the Office client of…

  15. Block downloads on Shared Folders

    Currently when you share a folder from OneDrive you're unable to block the downloading of ANY files within that folder (even if those file types you can block if you share the individually).

    Even if the Allow Editing box is unchecked, the recipient can still download any files within that folder.

    It will be great to be able to restrict downloads from the Shared Folder as often users want to share out a significant number of files and its not great having to share a link for each individual file.

  17. 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…

  18. Renaming of onedrive structures

    When syncing with sharepoint, onedrive does not update the top level company name, even after it is renamed in the tenant. This makes it impossible to rename the company within the onedrive utility, even though the office 365 tenant shows te renamed company. This is a basic need and should be enabled.

  19. Store Locations that are synced in o365 so that new or alternative machines will automatically sync these too

    It's great you can add locations to sync in OneDrive (ie Sharepoint sites), however when you move to a new machine these are not carried over.
    It would be good if locations that are synced can be shared across multiple machines without having to re-add them manually, it is not always easy to refind them!

  20. Allow folders to be ranked for upload. So most important folders/files are uploaded first

    SHaring folders with a team that is waiting is sometimes frustrating because they cannot see the particular file you refer to.

    It ends up that we just email some files so that we don't have to wait for the random assignment of folders to finally select the one we want to see.

    Broadly I'd like to mark folders for secondary upload AFTER the primary folders/files have replicated.

    Like you would select most folders and files as secondary and support so that individual files or folders are replicated first.

    It's these files first... and then the rest as pot-luck.
    Or
    These…
