  1. Gather email addresses from external users accessing OneDrive files without forcing them to log in

    Create a portal where users are required to enter their email address only when accessing a OneDrive file, without logging into an Office 365 account. This will allow the file creators to know who is accessing the file while allowing external users to access the file.

  2. OneDrive is not compatible with Office365 if Sharepoint not hosted at Microsoft and latest version

    OneDrive is not copatible with Office365 when the Sharepoint is not latests version and not hosted at Microsoft.
    This is critical for a decision to pass to Office 365, or to abbandon OneDrive/SharePoint

  3. We NEED to see the total number of files/sub-folders within a folder! Windows File Explorer has it and I use it constantly!

  4. OneDrive should generate a share-link while a file is still syncing.

    We work with media files which can be larger than most common files.

    A user has to wait for the file to sync before a share-link can be built. This totally breaks the stream of thought for a workflow.

    Dropbox always allowed the link generation immediately.

  5. Make links actually short

    I have seen you said One Drive does this now, but my links are really long: the last one was 48 characters. Bit.ly shortens Dropbox links up to only 7 characters after the "/" but I can not use it with One Drive (it says my link is already shortened with 48 characters!).

  7. Read Receipts when Sharing with Multiple Users

    Currently sharing a folder with multiple user's does not send out read receipts from each user.

    The only work around we could find was to create a link with edit rights, share it with a single user, and then change the link to read only. Then repeat for every user we want to share the file with.

    If we create a read only link and then share it individually it consolidates all shares into one link which does not send us a read receipt.

  9. Add Grant Access Capability to Sharing Interface for all UIs

    Allow users to grant access to a file/folder, rather than just sharing links, from all OneDrive/SharePoint UIs (web, desktop, and mobile). Right now, mobile and desktop only let you create/copy sharing links. However, this isn't useful if you later need a link that will for sure work for everyone with access (whether view or edit). The "people with existing access" link option works great for users who have been granted access, but isn't helpful when a bunch of people only have access only through specific sharing links.

  10. Stop OneDrive from Syncing Certain Local Folders

    I need to stop certain folders on my computer from syncing to OneDrive and remain only locally on my computer.

    The Problem: OneDrive automatically syncs all files/folders saved in "My Documents," which has been working fine for me so far on the "Free" (5 GB Max) version because I only save word documents/excel sheets for work in "My Documents" and save larger files in folders on my computer that are not tied to OneDrive. However, some applications default to saving their enormous program folders in "My Documents" and I've recently run into this issue. Now OneDrive is completely full trying…

  12. 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".

  13. Allow shared folders or your own folders to actually appear on your computer and sync when whichever one changes

    Having a folder on your computer desktop or wherever you put it as well as the one drive older. Whenever you make any change to your OneDrive folder or your folder in you computer,, the other one will sync automatically. Great for working on other devices.

  14. check in / out files through win explorer and mac finder

We work with file groupes (.dwg, .ifc, .vwx) which need be be synct offline This is forcing us to go to SharePoint online, check the files, edit the files offline save them and after sync to Check the files again online even though we post the files in Windows explorer.
    This would be very welcome to autodesk and vectorworks users.

  16. Select Folders to Synchronize from SharePoint before starting Synchronization process

    When I synchronize a SharePoint library with my OneDrive, I want to select the folders that I synchronize before it starts the synchronization process. We have some large libraries where it wastes time and energy to synchronize everything at the beginning.

  19. More Support For failed-to-sync Documents

    I'm frustrated with the syncing issues I experience with OneDrive when there are multiple people in the document making changes. It has failed one too many times to the point where wrong documents have been sent out because someones changes didn't sync through. It seems to be too sensitive for this kind of stuff and very temperamental. I initially thought this was a wonderful feature but now I'm starting to really doubt its capabilities. There has to be a way to track peoples changes, or offer a solution, when the document fails for someone. Some kind of overall master merger…

  20. Disable or rename option that shares with anyone in the organization that has the link

    Please add the ability to disable the option for people to share with "People in <organization name> with the link". This option is commonly misunderstood, and people can accidentally end up sharing documents with unintended people. For example, a document is shared with this setting, and people think only people with the link will see it, but in locations that use the Graph API to expose what documents are accessible to others, these same documents will be surfaced, which is misleading as they don't have the link but can access the document.

    This should be a tenant level configuration, similar…
