  4. Share to Youtube account

    Why isn't YouTube an available partner to share video files with? YouTube has a rich API that can be integrated with.

  5. Correct the behavior of the slider of External sharing setting in OneDrive admin center

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive 管理センターの外部共有の設定が反映しないため、修正してほしい。

    Correct the behavior of the slider of External sharing setting in OneDrive admin center


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive 管理センター> [共有] >[外部共有] の設定で、共有レベルのスライドバーを変更して保存すると、更新中のまま正常に変更されないため、修正してほしい。

    Even though we open OneDrive Admin Center> [Sharing] Tab > [External Sharing] and move the sliders to the settings we want and save it, the settings remain in the status being updating and do not change normally.

    For improvement of usability, we hope you to correct this behavior so that we can adjust the settings of sharing level as desired.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  6. Sharing and editing of Office files which are attached in Shared Notebook

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    共有したノートブックに添付されたファイルについて
    Sharing and editing of Office files which are attached in Shared Notebook


    ■Description(内容):
    共有したノートブック内に添付された Office ファイルについて、現時点ではノートブックの共有のみでは添付ファイルは共有されない動作のため、ノートブックの共有にて添付されたファイルについても共有され、複数ユーザーにて編集が可能となる機能の追加を希望します。

    We attached Office files in shared Notebook, but those files are not shared when the Notebook is shared.

    We would like to see the feature to share Notebook and attached Office file at the same time, and it would be great if multiple user will be able to edit those files.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  7. I think it would be a useful feature if I could see who of those people I have shared folders and files has been reading my OneDrive folders

    I think it would be a useful feature if I could see who of those people I have shared folders and files has been reading my OneDrive folders and/or files and when they have been reading those.
    The history of editing is already visible, but now I mean statistics only about opening the folder or file (readings), even by those who have read-only access.
    Compare the feature "has seen" of Facebook and Messenger.

    We are aware that sometimes users cannot add a file when migrating items on SharePoint Online/OneDrive for Business by using SharePoint Migration Tool because the file path length exceeds the limit.

    In order to check the file path length before the migration, it will be great if you could provide us a feature that allows confirming and/or exporting the list…

  11. Add ability to extend expiration date for shared links

    I always set an expiration date when sharing files/folders (especially anonymously). I tend to set these expiration dates in the near future. It would be nice to be able to extend these as necessary.

  13. Include 'Shared With Me' folder in Office Apps 'Open' file menu.

    When using the 'Open' feature of the file menu in all Office apps it would be very useful to be able to see the 'Shared With Me' folder as well as my personal OneDrive for Business 'Files' folder.

  14. Allow synchronizing folders on different devices

    Link a folder on your desktop to a folder within OneDrive using 'mklink /j'
    So any changes within the folder on your HDD is synced with the OneDrive folder.

    Now, I would like to have a folder on my laptop HDD synced with the OneDrive folder, so whatever I change on either device, it will be synced to the other thru OneDrive.

    Probably not (yet) possible. That's to say, I haven't found a way to get this done.

  15. Save the shared file link to your account with a click rather than download

    When someone shared a file link that opens up the file, there should be an option to "Add to OneDrive" rather than just Download the file or view online.

  16. Share with 'allow reshare' with permissions capability

    Reshare with permissions ability or delegate sharing ability.

    Currently when I share a file with a permission level e.g. read I would like to be able to specify whether the recipient can further share with the same permission level (or less) without having to get approval from the document owner.
    This would be the same for a file being shared with edit permission with a specific recipient. That recipient should then be able to reshare the document to further recipients with the ability to specify either edit permission or less with read-only permission. The recipient should not be able to…

  17. Allow different levels of access to different files in a shared folder

    If I share a folder, it would be nice to not have to give full edit access to every file or only view only to every file.

    I want to be able to have the shared person to have edit access to some files and view only to the rest.

    Trying to put view only on one file in the shared folder puts them to view only for every file.

  18. Transfer shared folder ownership

    Hi, Microsoft team.

    I have been looking around on how to transfer shared folder ownership from one user to another user. Reason I raised this up because of in situation if one employee left the company then she or he need to surrendered the ownership to the successor.
