  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  6. Hi, please make the Excel sheets on OneDrive less laggy. I feel like I'm on dial up sometimes when I try to open, save, or cross-reference

    Should be a way for the sheets to locally reference each other while on the drive rather than having to save local copies and then figure out referenceable work arounds...it crashes my excel when I try to do even simple cross-references because it's on my computer, going into the cloud to reference and then pulling that information back down from the cloud; I've had entire workbooks corrupted and hours of work lost because of this short-sighted "solution."

  7. Unable to save the settings in Device access control in OneDrive Admin Center

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive 管理センターのデバイス アクセス制御か保存できない事象について

    Unable to save the settings in Device access control in OneDrive Admin Center


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive 管理センターから IP アドレスによるアクセス制御を実施した際に、保存ボタンをクリックするも読み込み中の状態が続き、設定が反映されない。
    SharePoint 管理センターでは問題なく設定が完了するも、同じ機能を利用した際に OneDrive 管理センターでは動作が完了しないため、改善してほしい。

    In OneDrive admin center, even though we set a specific IP address for access control and then click “Save”, the loading status continues and the setting is not reflected.
    We confirmed that the same process can be completed without any problem in SharePoint Admin Center.

    Therefore, I hope you to correct this behavior for us to complete control access settings.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  8. OneDrive for Business shared folder settings

    OneDrive for Business の [共有] のなかにあります [自分と共有] と [自分が共有元] のフォルダーやファイルの一覧におきまして、SharePoint Online のようにビューを作成したりして、見やすいように表示の切り替えができる機能の追加を希望。
    また、OneDrive for Business より共有した、されたものか、SharePoint Online より共有した、されたものかを分かりやすく表示されるよう改善希望です。

    For improvement of usability and manageability, allow switching the view of the folder/file lists for “Shared with me” and “Shared by me” in OneDrive for Business shared folder, just like SharePoint Online that allow creating the view for simplicity.

    Also, simple clear display would be nice so that it is easy to identify whether it is shared/share from OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online.

    Thank…

    When we are getting close to the storage limit of OneDrive for Business, the system automatically sends notification e-mails stating that “You’re getting close to your storage limit.”

  12. I want a single set of shared folders across the whole company which I can invite users to under specific permissions.

    I want a single set of folders relevant to my organisation which I can allow existing or new users to access. As people come in and out of my company I want to be able to fine-grained permissions to people about what they can/cant do with the folders and content.

    I DONT want content to be assigned to specific people so that when they leave their content is obliterated. I want content to be assigned and shared to the company, not individuals who may be transient.

  13. Allow sharing of OneDrive for Business between organizations.

    I have a url for a publicly shared OneDrive and need to download the files on a regular schedule. The Folders on the other OneDrive for Business are all in folders that contain zip files and there is no login so I can't join or share it with my OneDrive for Business.

  15. A OneDrive folder you can not share files from

    We would like to shed my on premise file storage and have all our users use OneDrive for Business. We would like to have a folder created in everyone's OneDrive that they can not accidentally share files from consider it a "safe' folder. The user would have to deliberately move the document out of the "Safe" folder to another area or folder before they could share it .

    This "Safe" folder would be added protection to prevent theaccidental/unintentional sharing trade secrets, personal information, etc...

  20. Preserve offline files across sessions on apps

    When you are forced to log in again on the iOS app (for instance, if your password changes - which happens regularly in a lot of corporate setups) any downloaded files from shared locations get deleted.
    This can be quite annoying if every few months your AD password expires, all your downloaded shared files have to be downloaded again to use offline.
