  1. Live file synch only setting

    For sharepoint linked libraries, there should be a setting that allows access to file in online only mode, meaning files are not stored locally .. if there connection to the internet then live synch is active otherwise files aren't available for synching. Files access works the same way windows explorer opens files, and warns users that file is in use, and allow collaboration. Avoids multiple copies of the same file being stored locally by multiple users and creating very annoying upload issues and synching problems.

  2. All group libraries should be shown in the "shared libraries" list

    Not just frequent and followed, but all libraries should be shown in the list. On the web, the left menu should show all libraries because it is more user friendly and it is an easier way to access it rather than through outlook or sharepoint

  4. Add function to require a code every time a file is accessed via a sharing link from OneDrive for Business

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Business でリンク共有後、アクセスする際に毎回コード入力を求められる機能を要望します。
    Add function to require a code every time a file is accessed via a sharing link from OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):
    リンク共有を行った際には外部ユーザーはゲスト ユーザーに登録されたるため、初回のみコード要求が行われるが、セキュリティ の観点からリンク共有元から毎回コードを求められるように設定する機能実装を要望します。

    When sharing a file using a link, since external users are registered as guest users, they have to enter a code the first time they access it. However, from a security perspective, we would like for the user doing the sharing to be able to set it to require a code every time it is accessed.

  5. Clock based uploading, I only want to upload at night when I am asleep.

    My internet is not super fast, and anytime one drive is synching it kills the entire connection in my house. It sucks.

    So I pause it the entire day and when I'm doing stuff at night so I can use my network. I want to be able to set HOURS that I can have it upload, like midnight to 7am, or something like that.

  6. Make “Prevent downloads” be enabled by default for temporary access when sharing files

    ■Title(件名):
    ファイルなどを共有する際に、一定時間アクセスしている間は "ダウンロードを禁止する" を既定で有効の状態にする
    Make “Prevent downloads” be enabled by default for temporary access when sharing files


    ■Description(内容):
    ファイルなどを共有する際に、毎回 "ダウンロードを禁止する" が無効の状態に戻ってしまう。
    利便性が悪いため、一定時間アクセスしている間は『ダウンロードを禁止する』を既定で有効の状態にできるよう機能の拡充を希望します。

    When sharing files, the “Prevent downloads” checkbox reverts to being unchecked every time.
    This is inconvenient, so please make it possible to set this option to default to being enabled when granting temporary access.

  8. Request Files Strips EXIF Data From iPhone Photos

    I cannot test myself, as I do not have an iPhone, but - when a file request for photos was completed using an iPhone, the files came through with odd, lengthened names and no EXIF Data! The Date Taken is especially needed when requesting photos! Please ensure all platforms can upload files with accurate metadata.

  10. Subfolders in OneDrive albums

    I miss the possibility to create subfolders for (photo) albums in OneDrive.
    FOR EXAMPLE:
    Album "Travel"
    America (subfolder of folder "Travel")
    New York (subfolder of folder "America")
    Florida (subfolder of folder "America")
    Chicago (subfolder of folder "America")
    Or for example:

    Album "Kids' Pictures"
    Michael (subfolder of folder "Kids' Pictures")
    2015 (subfolder of folder "Michael")
    01 January (subfolder of folder "2015")
    02 February (subfolder of folder "2015")
    ...
    2016 (subfolder of folder "Michael")
    01 January (subfolder of folder "2016")
    02 February (subfolder of folder "2016")
    ...
    Mia (subfolder of folder "Kids' Pictures")

  11. Scheduled file synchronization

    There are times when a scheduled synchronization of files from shared devices will provide a consistent base for all users. In some business offices a requirement for the latest shared file is needed to ensure the file being used is current. Scheduling the sync process will provide a daily sync point for all changed files.

  12. One Drive pour Autocad est problématique si plusieurs usager des documents.

    One Drive pour Autocad est problématique si plusieurs usagers des documents sur OneDrive.
    Nous ne sommes pas avisé si une personne utilise déjà un fichier, mais les informations d'une seule personne sont conservées.

  16. Bring back the sorting option for last modified date in OneDrive shared documents.

    The sort feature for "last modified date" for shared documents in OneDrive was removed with a recent update. This was a helpful feature and should be brought back.

  20. do not allow editing files as default when sharing in educational account

    When sharing a OneDrive file in educational accounts, students do not want to delete the file, or end up typing responses to others, or even erase all their work leaving just a blank sheet.
    I would like the standard, when sharing any file (doc, mp4, etc.), to be non-editable.
