  2. multiple

    Allow adding multiple email addresses at once when sharing

    It's really a pain to have to manually add each email address you wish to share to one by one. You cannot even add one and then go to another window to copy a new address - as soon as the OneDrive share pop-up lose focus all addresses you've added so far are lost.

  3. Transfer ownership (not access nor permissions) of shared folders

    Effectively and quickly transfer folders and files ownership to another active account to avoid copying files and changing active links already shared with many users.

  4. Request files requirement for "Anyone Links" folder edit rights

    Request files not shaping up as previewed

    For security reasons our company has limited "anyone" links to view for files and folders. Unfortunately to use Request Files requires "anyone" links have edit rights on folders. Why can't the feature work with "specific people"? Why does this feature require changing a global security setting to use?

    Your preview materials state that uploaders would not see anything but would just see the area where they can upload. But making a security change that would impact more than just this type of link (request files) is not what we had hoped to see.

  5. Add Shortcut from Shared file to One Drive folder

    Hello. I think I miss this alot while using OneDrive. I've been GDrive user with premium plan which is allow us to add a shortcut from another file to our onedrive folder. Now OneDrive only allow add shared folder shortcut but I need add shared file Shortcut. It should be a very important tools for many people also.

    I use Office 365 family and we always use link for file, not foler, and That's been a habit since from GDrive for 10 years...

    Hope OneDrive team heard this and made it accross from personal, business, and education.

    On Business maybe…

    When folders in OneDrive for Business are deleted, those folders will disappear immediately on the owner's OneDrive for Business screen, but the names for those same folders will continue to be displayed in "Shared With Me" on the shared party's side.
    Please correct this so that those folders will disappear immediately on the shared party's side as well.

  8. If external link sharing not enabled, simplify sending an email to external/internal

    External link sharing is turned off for tenant. To send email to external and internal, only way is to attach file - plus the error message user receives does not explain why email failed. Prefer - user share file. If external (and blocked at tenant level), attach file. If internal sent in same email - send link not attachment.

    If user wishes to attach to all, user needs to take steps.

  10. 略显尴尬的分享体验

    我在OneDrive存储了课程的课外阅读资料,想分享给同学,当我分享链接时,基本上很少有同学能够顺利访问,当我试图分享文件副本时,下载速度又非常惨不忍睹,哪怕只有3-5兆的文件(网络环境不错的情况下),我只能重新把文件都上传百度网盘,然后再通过百度网盘分享,同样的网络环境,百度网盘上传速度可以达到10+MB/s,即使被吐槽的非会员下载速度,体验也比OneDrive 要好

  11. Don’t know which files are the most recent versions when syncing fails on OneDrive for Business

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Business で同期の失敗時にどこにあるファイルが最新かがわからない
    Don’t know which files are the most recent versions when syncing fails on OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business で同期が失敗した際に、該当のファイルが他の場所で更新されているかなど、現在の状態が不明なため、共同作業に支障が出てしまう。
    同期が失敗したファイルのステータスに、他の場所での変更の有無や、編集履歴、編集中のユーザーの表示など、ファイルの現在の状況が確認できるような機能の追加を要望します。

    If there is a failure when syncing on OneDrive for Business, it’s not clear if a file has been updated to match one held elsewhere or not, which interferes with collaboration efforts.
    Please make it possible to check the current status of files, such as if it has been synced with another version, its edit history, which users are currently editing it, etc.

  12. restore process for backups

    firstly, when turning on backups, they don't back up to the same folder that the onedrive sync is so my users now have to look in 2 different places. Also, there is not a clear cut way to restore backed up files to a new computer. In fact, on the new computer if you sign into onedrive and go to the backups tab, it doesn't see that there are backups from another computer and only prompts you to begin new backups which I haven't yet tested to see if doing that overwrites your previous backups which would be completely absurd.

  13. Easier Logon sources, easy access to a URL name, and more specific download choices!

    If account is on several computers; treat each computer seperately. 15 yrs ago i made the same mistake using one account on a group of computers. The autopilot doesnt check for compatability, and will also double and quadruple copy big files in very unlikely to find folders. A BETTER DIRECTORY...im sure windows 10 indexing will help with older systems and then for windows 10 i would definately suggest a more humble backup at least until its debugged and done updating. Thanks i very much appreciate and respect your time for reading.

  14. Link to PDF document maintained after the PDF has moved between folders

    Links to Office documents are maintained even if they are moved around in OneDrive folders. A PDF Document link is not maintained when it is moved from one location to another, except a link which is always public and unsecured. Could there be a workflow to search the title of the file than going to a physical address. The idea is a share of a pdf should remain valid even if it is moved or re-filed in folders from the original location.

  15. use local OneDrive file paths for footers/headers in Office applications

    When entering a OneDrive filename and path in an Office application it would be more helpful to see the local file path rather than something like:
    https://d.docs.live.net/123456789abcde/Documents/filename.docx

  16. Shared Folder Expiry - Custom

    Right now you can only set custom expiration dates on files or folders when you pick "anyone with link". Would love the ability to set a custom expiry date on a folder shared with a specific person. Would be helpful because it's common to set up a shared folder for document transfer with someone outside the organization during a project. But would love to set that access to essentially disconnect after a set period of time. Right now you can just set all files and folders shared to expire after a certain date which screws up internal shares that are…

  17. Allow to only ONCE download a shared file or folder.

    As of now, we can only restrict by a certain time frame. But we would like to ensure, people can only download once.

  18. Have a Check-In/Check out System for CAD files, downloading files to a user's drive and locking it in Sharepoint until re-uploaded.

    This will allow for smoother remote work for the Engineering industry and all those who use CAD software. Also, maybe having the ability to check-out an entire folder as some CAD software has multiple files required in collaboration. Many companies, including my own, use custom AutoCAD user-interface and scripts in order to streamline tasks, so AutoCAD web does not work for us.

  19. Extend idle session timeout for OneDrive-hosted embedded Excel workbooks

    Please extend the idle timeout for Excel workbooks embedded in web pages via OneDrive (iframe method) to at least 30 minutes. Around Feb 2020 the timeout dropped from hours to only ~12 minutes of inactivity, but that is far too short for use cases requiring users to fetch and return with additional data.

  20. 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")
    2018 (subfolder of folder "Mia")
    01 January (subfolder of…
