  4. When sharing photos via OneDrive, setting a time for loading and displaying photos is requested, ideally one set by owner when sharing.

    The functional goal is to ensure clarity in displaying shared photos. In current use, jpg photos of 5mB don't load in full detail, even when accessed over fibre optic link.
    Ideally, the owner should specify the time for displaying shared photos when sharing. The time could be set in seconds or Slow/Medium/Fast. In addition, users of Photo should have an opton to set slide show rates as Slow/Medium/Fast. Both time controls should be set at the "shared photo" collection.
    Consider the potential for automating the display of all photos and videos at the user view session, possibly intelligently automating the…

  5. About changing the location of a shared sync folder

    About changing the location of a shared sync folder


    ■Description(内容):
    現状においては、共有を受けたフォルダーに対し同期設定を行った場合、<会社名> のフォルダーが作成され、その配下に共有先同期フォルダーが作成されるが、保存先の変更が行えない動作である。
    共有を受けた同期フォルダーの保存先を、ユーザーの任意で変更できるように機能の拡張を希望します。
    Currently, when the sync setting is made to a shared folder, <Company Name> of the folder is created, and the shared sync folder is created under it, but the save location cannot be changed.
    I would like the feature to be extended so that users can optionally change where to save the shared sync folders.

  6. Change Access Permissions for File Request Feature

    Love the new file request feature and can be very useful in my org. We would like to see a different approach for access and not have to enable anyone with a link access. We would like the specific people sharing option, to lock whom the request stays with. I does not seem secure that I can forward that link to another use to upload whatever they want.

  8. Behavior when sharing with personal OneDrive

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    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.

  10. Ensure multiple people can read documents without synchronization issues

    Referring ticket # 17174503

    "When two or more people are working on a document at the same time, they might make changes that conflict with each other. Conflicts can occur when one person works offline and then saves the document to the server. Conflicts can also occur when two people work on the same part of a document at exactly the same time. When edits conflict, the file would display a notification the next time that a user tries to save the document. The conflicts must be resolved before you can save the document to the cloud.

  12. Dropbox like global drive

    Our organisation has around 20,000 staff, all with MS enterprise licenses. But very few of use sharepoint nor onedrive. Its unfit for purpose, we use private dropbox or google drive free versions, and we are moving towards slack as meetings chat is so bad, and we are moving to confluence as sharepoint is so bad. The big problem with onedrive is there is no global company wide place to put important docs. The only way you can share docs is to share from your personal onedrive. When the person who shared the docs leaves, the docs are lost, and noone…

  14. Allow soe users to share outside organization while restricting others.

    Allow some users to share with external users while restricting most to internal (organizational tenant) users. Our other file sharing options, including Box, Dropbox and GD allow us to do that, what cant OneDrive?

  16. Allow Editing in Synced Read-Only Folder

    In my company, we have a Sharepoint Online document library that is synced to multiple Windows 10 laptops using the OneDrive for Business client. One user has the ability to make changes, while the other users are given "can view" only, as they should not be making changes to the library. Inside one folder of this library is a small program that users can run. This program generates temporary files (inside the same folder from which it is running), and if it cannot create/edit those files, it will not run. With the library being "can view", the OneDrive client prevents…

  17. Add the function to specify the sharing range

    I would like to publish PowerPoint files saved on OneDrive on website created with WordPress, but not to allow viewers to copy or download my file.
    I would like to share the content, not the skill (e.g. how to create animations, )that is needed to creat the file.

    So, I hope that OneDrive add a function to specify the sharing range if you publish files using embed code or shared link URL.

  18. Have atleast 10Gb of free storage

    I had 100gb of free storage because of using a samsung device but now that the promotion has ended I realize that how less 5gb is!!!

    I think we should have atleast 10gb for free, Google drive offers 15gb for free, as mush as I wanna use Google drive I still like Onedrive because I can access everything on my desktop in the file explorer. So PLzzz vote for this, I really really wish they add just 5 more gb for free plzzz🙏

    Bill Gates 🙏

    😫😫PLEASE!!!

    Sometimes the positions of shapes get changed when editing PowerPoint presentations containing embedded shapes using PowerPoint Online.
    We have also confirmed the same behaviour when using Word Online and Excel Online.
    Please improve this feature so that the positions of shapes do not get changed while editing.
