  1. Secure file sharing in Microsoft 365 Family

    I have subscribed to Microsoft 365 Family and have several family members using OneDrive with me. There is a need for a new function allowing of files and documents containing sensitive information with family members on my account. I keep private information on online accounts in a file in my Personal Vault. My wife needs access to that information, but I can't share files in my Personal Vault. There should be a function that allows highly secure storage for sensitive information but can be accessed by members of my family account. Perhaps a new location like Family Vault that works…

  3. Request to increase free OneDrive storage from 5 GB to 20GB or more.

    Hi Team,

    This is regarding the free space 5GB provided for the OneDrive. I feel this space is little less for the personal uses for the existing users. More cloud space will allow user to explore and use cool apps like OneNotes, Powerpoint and access them on the go.

    Thank You,

    Thank you,

  4. Allow admins to manage the permissions of files that users shared in Teams chats

    *English follows Japanese

    Teams のチャットで各ユーザーが共有したファイルの権限をテナント管理者で管理できるようにしたい
    Allow admins to manage the permissions of files that users shared in Teams chat ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    Teams のチャットで共有したファイルは、ユーザーの OneDrive for Business の "Microsoft Teams チャット ファイル" フォルダーに保存されるが、このフォルダーの権限を全ユーザー一括でテナント管理者が変更できるようにしてほしい。
    また、その後各ユーザーが権限を変更できないように設定できる機能を追加してほしい。

    Files shared via Teams chat are stored in the user's OneDrive for Business "Microsoft Teams Chat Files" folder, but I want the tenant admin to be able to change the permissions on this folder for all users at once.
    Also, please add a function that enables a setting to prevent users from changing the permissions after that.

  5. Business OneDrive user accounts should be able to share OneDrive folders (like Office Home users can).

    With a non Business OneDrive, I can share a folder with other people with non-business OneDrive.

    I use this function in my consulting business and so I have to keep an Office Home subscription as well as my Business Microsoft 365 subscription.

    BTW, the ability to share OneDrive folders with business partners is a very practical concept.

  9. Option on client to see ALL folders/files that are taking up space on local machine when On Demand is used

    At the moment, cannot see an option in the OneDrive client that will show any files or folders that are "Always kept on device" as I use the On Demand sync feature.

    Would be useful to see all the stuff that is taking up space on local hard drive so I can then use "Free up space" more easily!

  10. upload only

    Upload option only in client:

    Ability to sync changes from client, to upstream only. In other words protect content on machine by NOT automatically syncing cloud data as the authoritative source. Could be a simple tick option in settings for GLOBAL or on a per folder basis. This is useful when using OneDrive as a backup store only making sure changes on local machine replicate to the cloud, but changes done in cloud don't affect a machine.

  11. filter shared by

    It is great that we now can list all files that I have shared, or someone has shared with me. We can sort and group that list by file name, date and who shared it.

    What I suggest is that we also could sort/filter this list by location, i.e. the URL or site name.

  12. Would be good to move all onedrive data to sharepoint

    We are backing up our old users data from their onedrive to sharepoint. Currently we can only files smaller than 500 mb which gives us a major hindrance when backing up larger files.

    It would be good to have solution to move old users data from onedrive to sharepooint in one click.

  15. when unsyncing from one drive, give the person the choice whether to delete from computer or one drive

    currently laptops are set up automatically syncing whether we like it or not, and whether we know/understand or not. Then when you select files/folders you dont want to sync, it automatically deletes them from the pc/laptop, keeping them on the cloud, instead of giving customers the choice where to keep them. I would like to un-sync and leave the files on my laptop.

    Also, this option needs to be an separate opt in checkbox - not forcing anyone who wishes to take the time to provide feedback with being spammed as a result "and to notify me about product updates"

  16. OneDrive client for Linux

    Many organisations employ the use of multiple Operating system environments for client facing services whilst also utilising the most out of their Office 365 / Microsoft 365 subscriptions. Unfortunately there are OneDrive sync clients for all but Linux.

    Granted Linux is a broad term, and for me personally I am looking for a native Linux client in the same sense as the MS Teams native Linux client.

  17. Transparent, seamless, and unassisted capacity upgrades

    Had free onedrive; bought MS 365 with onedrive capacity upgrade. but For the life of me, I do not know why I have to be involved to increase my onedrive capacity. Just do it to my existing onedrive transparently-no need for my intervention. If there are legal issues or other issues, these should be immediately handled at the subscription purchase application touch point. I have not had time to get to this and have not been able to leverage this capacity yet.

  18. Share Files/Folders within Personal Vault

    I have been looking for some time for a way of sharing sensitive files with family members, but in a secure way not having to rely on their security.
    I believe that sharing within personal vault could accomplish this.

    If I were to share a file within my vault and that shared file would only be available within the other users vault, and they were unable to move the file out of their vault, then that file would be protected by 2FA whether they had set up 2FA on their accounts or not.

    I'm looking at it to store end…

  19. Sync feature for "outside organization" users

    Allow people that I share files with from outside my organization to "Sync" files to their local computer. I'm told from some of the people I share with that they do not have this option.
