  1. I would be grateful if I could choose when I want the data to be synchronized to OneDrive, and not just to have it done automatically.

  3. Remove geo-location information from photos when sharing

    Have an option to remove personal meta data from photos in a folder. This would be useful for privacy when sharing photos with a public link.
    Currently all photos taken from a smartphone will by default include very accurate location information (which is fine for my own private photos) but when sharing them I want to be able to easily remove all that information.

  4. Link Expiration for all sharing types

    Creating a link that expires for all the different sharing types (Specific People, People with existing access or People in ORG with the link) instead of just "Anyone Links".

  5. Add a "write" rights option to a shared folder.

    Create "write-only" access to a shared folder which would allow private uploads viewable only by the owner or those with "read" rights. Example: We work with over a thousand nonprofits that submit bylaws for editing. Rather than creating over a thousand folders (one for each nonprofit) we could create one repositiory folder with "write" access only.

  6. File Limit Makes OneDrive and SharePoint Worthless

    We are currently using Google Drive and DropBox to share files on our devices. We have Office 365, so we thought we would try OneDrive, but the two reasons it will never work are:


    1. File/Folder Limits are too low

    2. SharePoint integration

    Google Drive is so much easier to setup, you don't have to deal with something complex like SharePoint for something so simple, and you aren't handcuffed by file/folder limitations.

    As it currently stands, OneDrive is worse than worthless - we wasted our time even trying it out.

    It also seems the sync client is not nearly as good as…

  7. Password Protection For Shared OneDrive objects should extend to Windows File Explorer.

    Password Protected Objects in OneDrive should have protection extended to when that object is viewed in Windows File Explorer. Presently, as of 11/14/2019, it is the design of OneDrive to allow Password Protection on Shared folders. As long as the shared & protected object is viewed in a browser then a password prompt secures the object. However, if that object is Added To My OneDrive (aka viewable within Windows 10 File Explorer) then the password prompt goes away while access to the content remains. This is a security flaw in my opinion and not a feature. Microsoft support confirmed that…

  9. Download shared files without sign-up

    Currently, files can only be viewed, not downloaded without a OneDrive about when shared. That's a real hybrids given the amount of people who are NOT in OneDrive. Sharing becomes almost a useless feature that way as you can't keep asking people to sign up just to be able to receive your shares!

  10. Provide option to NOT share specific Office files (xlsm specifically) via VBA on OneDrive business

    I have complex, macro-enabled Excel (xlsm) files that work fine on OneDrive for Business as long as the "Use Office application to sync Office files that I open" is NOT checked in the OneDrive settings. The Office sync functionality and ability to work collaboratively is great, but it doesn't work with my (and others as I found while searching for my issue) workbooks. The file has backup and save macros and slows down immensely and throws strange errors for my clients ("High service activity", "File wasn't uploaded because we cannot merge change made by another user" when there is only…

  11. Have the ability to consolidate the entire OneDrive space included in Office 365 Familly into a single OneDrive space.

    Thus, we could use the 6To included even if the 6 Office shares licences are not used.
    One could consider that the administrators could allocate space quotas for shared Office accounts or use the 6To with the whole family without restriction (a bit like one would do with a NAS).

  12. OneDrive for Business Client - Allow User the ability to add folders to 'Shared'

    Currently the 'Shared with Me' folder data is presented from backend auto-index.
    Users can Remove Docs and Folders from the View - but cannot ADD folders.
    We need control to ADD and set folders in the 'Shared' view.

  14. Fix the different behaviour for the Web interface and Mobile apps for shared and "Added to my OneDrive" folders

    When the shared by others folder with Edit permissions is "Added to my OneDrive", the view of this folder from the "Files" location allows you to RENAME the folder. The mobile app (both iOS and Android) manages to revert the folder's name back to the original (since it belongs to another user/account), but the Web interface (and respectively, the sync engine) keeps showing the re-named folder in "Files", while in "Shared" tab it looks as original. To avoid the confusion, the option "RENAME" should be removed from the shared folders, that were added to my OneDrive, if it is not…

  15. Enable commenting of Office files in the OneDrive Details panel same way as non-Office files

    Enable commenting of Office files in the OneDrive Details panel in the same way as non-Office files

    The recently released feature "Comments on non-Office Files" (Roadmap ID 16617) is excellent. But bafflngly, it does not support commenting - or even seeing the comments - of Office files without opening the document.

    Please make this consistent, so that all files - both Office and non-Office - may be commented in OneDrive in the same way; or at least so that comments in Office files would show in OneDrive (at the moment, there's only a version history note saying that the file…

  17. New option: keep local file

    During a reconnection, if OneDrive can not synchonize a file, it renames the local file by adding the name of the PC and adds the cloud file. Add an option to do the opposite: keep the local file and add the cloud version by adding "-OneDrive"

  18. Hide documents from Delve, that are shared with "link sharing"

    If user shares document with link inside organization, this sharing option creates illusion that only users who know exact link, can access document.
    Everyone in organization can see document if they open user page in Delve.
    All documents that user shared with link are publicly available to all workers inside company in Delve.

  19. Extending B2B SharePoint Library Content Sync to Non-O365 Organizations (or) Users

    Hello Team,

    It is great that Microsoft has introduced the B2B sync for recipients from O365 account holders. It would be great if this can be extended to any External User - like the users from Microsoft Account (gmail.com, outlook.com domain users) that are not on O365/Azure AD.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Bhanu

  20. Multiple unique share links for a file

    We would like the ability to create multiple randomized public download links for a single file. Each link can have its own separate password or link expiration.

    This would allow you to control access to a file to individuals not a part of your organization through different links, instead of creating a single link with global permissions for everybody.

    It also opens up the door for other features, such as limiting the number of downloads and notifying a user that a file has been downloaded while still being able to share with multiple people.
