  1. Allocate personal space in a business account that cannot be seen by the Administrator

    Microsoft allows a max of 50 GB of personal Onedrive without purchasing another office 365 licence. If you have a business account including the office products - you should be able to set aside or buy additional private storage space over 50 GB not controlled by the company for personal files.

  4. Allowing to migrate/move folders from one account to another one.

    For people who have the 5TB plan, and need to use more space that 1TB, it would be very useful to transfer/migrate/move contents from one account to another. Unless you allow one account to incorporate the 1TB from the other (within his subscription plan), instead of using two different accounts. Or, unless you allow to increase the 1TB space via an additional conribution. Let's try to be more flexible with accounts within the same subscription...after all, we are paying for the best experience! Thanks!

  5. Need an option to lock sharing and editing option temporarily for about one or two hour without notifying others

    When we use sync client of OneDrive for Business, not all the Excel files will be “read only”.

    Check out feature is able to make files as read only, but it takes a lot of time and increased workload to use this feature for the file we use frequently.

    Formerly files became “read only” when multiple users open the one file, so we would like…

  7. Enable checking sharing status of items on OneDrive for Business via Explorer

    Enable checking sharing status of items on OneDrive for Business via Explorer

    OneDrive for Business 上に保存されているアイテムを別のユーザーに共有している状態、および別のユーザーから共有されている状態をエクスプローラーから確認できる機能の追加を希望いたします。エクスプローラー上の同期フォルダーから共有設定が行えるため、エクスプローラー上で完結できる機能を希望いたします。

    I hope you to implement the feature that can check the sharing status of item on OneDrive for Business via Explorer, both items shared by me and items shared by other users.

    The sharing settings can be done by sync folders on Explorer so that I hope that the checking sharing status should be able to be completed within the Explorer as well.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  8. Shared File/Folder changes notifications.

    Dunno if this one has been posted yet, I see some stuff that's similar, but not really exactly the feature I'm looking for.

    In particular, my mom has shared with me details about a planned trip out of the country via one-drive, and I'd like to get a notification if she makes any changes to her plans, so I can keep tabs on what she's up to over there.

    And now that I'm thinking about it more, and reading the post below this comment box, it sounds very similar to that... >_<
    XD

    I'd like a digest of changes, and…

  11. Prevent the creation of a manually created folder in the root of the Tenant Client Synce Team sites

    From the explorer view, and the root hierarchy of Team Site Sync'd data under the Tenant name. End-user are able to manually create a new folder and sub structure. This data does not get sync'd.

    This results in data being resident to the device only, and not sync'd back.

    If the same action is done from within a Team Site structure, the data is sync'd.

    Need to understand how to limit/prevent users from creating this non-sync'd folder structure.

  12. Generate SHARE LINK in advance ahead of time like DropBox!

    I hate the fact that oneDrive has to wait for the file to be uploaded before a link is ready to share. This forces people like me to WAIT till that upload is finish in order to generate a share link.

    In many other Cloud Sharing solutions like DropBox, the flow is much better.

    As soon as you add a file in the ShareFolder, a share link is ready to be copy-pasted right away and if the other party visits that link and the file isn't done uploaded yet, it simply tells the user that the file is still uploading.…

  13. File system for chrome os

    It would be nice to have an extension for the file manager in Chrome Os that fully supports Onedrive. There is actually one (I guess an independent third party) https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/file-system-for-onedrive/jbfdfcehgafdbfpniaimfbfomafoadgo but it doesn't work properly on my Chromebook.

  19. Prevent re-sharing by non-owners from a tenant-level

    By default anyone who a file is shared with in OneDrive has the ability to re-share that file with additional users. This setting can be disabled on a site-per-site basis via Set-SPOSite with DisableSharingForNonOwners.
    It would be very useful to have this setting on a tenant-level (via admin center), as today using the above cmdlet means we need to re-run this for every new OneDrive site that is provisioned, and to make sure users don't reset this flag.

  20. Manager / supervisor

    It might be a good idea to have a person that is marked as a manager whom gets notifications when the files are updated. Then he or she can assess the workmanship of work done without calling or to go check if work was done.
