    Add a way to change permissions after an item on OneDrive for Business has been shared with “Anyone in the organization with the link”


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business で、[特定のユーザー] で共有した場合は、共有後に 編集可能 ⇔ 表示可能の権限変更が可能だが、[リンクを知っている組織のユーザー] で共有した場合は権限変更ができない。
    [リンクを知っている組織のユーザー] で共有した際は権限変更するのにリンクを作り直す必要があるため、[特定のユーザー] で共有した場合と同じように、簡単に権限変更できるよう機能を統一してほしい。

    On OneDrive for Business, if you share something with “Specified users”, you can change their permissions between editing and viewing afterwards, however you cannot do this if you share with “Anyone in the organization with the link”.
    In order to change permissions after sharing in this way, it is necessary to remake the link,…

  2. Add a quick way to share as pdf

    We often shared files as PDF instead of the original format. Right now we have to open, download, convert with god reader, then send. Would be great if one of the share options was to share as pd so that could be done in one clicn without having to open or download the file.

  3. Share link among the same organization

    I´d like to have an option to create a generic link that can only be shared in the same organization. We could have a similar feature to Google Drive where I have to approve when someone opens the link, and I get a notification. Right now, I have to know all potential links and this is quite annoying.

  8. Prevent users from accepting OneDrive access requests from an External 365 Tenant

    Our scenario:
    • A member of our staff (In Azure AD) receives a OneDrive shared link to a folder. The shared link is from an external customer, and the customer is not added as a guest to our tenant. (Not in Azure AD)
    • The staff member accepts the shared link request and is now able to upload sensitive documents to the folder link they received.
    • As an Office 365 Admin, I have no audit logs that show a user has accessed the folder or uploaded the documents to the folder.

    I would like to request this to be…

  10. You need to rethink sharing from the ground up

    I have been trying to collaborate with a colleague by sharing a folder so that we can both access a set of Office documents. I have been shocked by how poorly setup the sharing system is in OneDrive. There are multiple systems (Onedrive, Teams, Sharepoint) that are incompatible with one another. There are options for granting "direct access" and creating a "shared link". The sharing system is not intuitive and is unnecessarily confusing. It seems like MS has been pushing together different tools without rethinking the total user experience. My suggestion is that you scrap the entire model and start…

  11. Display of items shared with security groups

    Display of items shared with security groups

    At present, when you share something with a security group, it is not added to “Shared with me”.
    While items are displayed here when they are shared on a user basis, they are not shown when specifying a group to share with.
    Please make it so that items appear here even when they are shared with a group.

  14. Synchronization of files "shared with me" in One Drive Windows explorer

    It would be really useful to access the files that are shared with me directly from Windows explorer instead of accessing them only in the internet browser.

  17. 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"

  18. Provide means to force download or open in app for files > 50MB

    It is very difficult to share files externally that are > 50MB. The sharing dialog box should allow options to force download or open in app so that the sender does not have to manipulate the link.

  19. Make it possible to use the same sharing links after UPN changes

    UPN 変更後に共有リンクを引き続き利用できるようにしてほしい。
    Make it possible to use the same sharing links after UPN changes


    ■Description(内容):
    ユーザーのUPNを変更すると、OneDrive for Business の URL が変更されるため、UPN 変更前に共有していたファイルのリンクにアクセスしてもエラーになる。
    再共有を行う必要が生じるため、UPNを変更しても引き続き共有していたファイルのリンクにアクセスできるようにしてほしい。

    If you change a user’s UPN, URLs for OneDrive for Business are changed, so attempting to use sharing links issued before the change returns an error.
    Since this means it is necessary to re-issue the sharing link, please make it so that you can continue to use the same links even if the UPN is changed.
