  3. Suggestion: Fix "link breaks" issue when file/folder is renamed or moved

    ISSUE: re. shared links. When the document gets renamed or moved to a different folder, the link "breaks" and no longer works for those whom we've shared it with.

    SUGGESTION: If folder or docs each had their own unique object identifier, and links were associated with the unique object identifier (as opposed to the file name or folder name), links would never break. :-)

  4. Suggestion: Add "Personal Vault" feature to OneDrive for Business

    I appreciate that OneDrive for Business leverages overall Office 365 security features. That said, does the roadmap for OneDrive for Business include the introduction of the "Personal Vault" feature available in OneDrive Personal?

    フォルダー単位や、スライドなどで一括で選択しアップロードできる機能の追加を希望します。

    Currently we need to click on files one by one to upload them with OneDrive App. It takes a lot of time when we deal with many files. Please add an option to select them by folder or all files using a slider etc.

  7. File Request expiration policy serperate from Anyone links

    Currently the File Request expiration is the same as that set for Anyone links. But often you want to set the Anyone links expiration to a few weeks and we would like the File Request expiration to be indefinite. Otherwise if you use the File Request feature you have to keep sharing a link if you want this for a long term process.

  9. STORAGE SHARING for All of my Outlook accounts

    I recently upgraded my Outlook storage on main account to 2TB. Why can't this storage be shared with my "family" of other Outlook accounts---similar to Google One? I'm surprised that Microsoft extends this tremendous inconvenience to its users. Granted, MSFT wants to make money but the trade-off of creating inventive services to its users in sharing storage data to enjoy other MSFT apps would be compelling. Why must I purchase individual storage plans for all of my Outlook accounts which I use for various purposes? Please....be inventive and stay ahead of the curve on improving the online lives of your…

  10. Not an Idea...Need Support

    Microsoft support asked me to add this as a request, even though it is more of an issue that needs to be resolved.

    Multiple users cannot open certain Microsoft Word files if they are in a synced OneDrive/SharePoint folder. They can be opened in Microsoft Online though.

    There is only one way I could get the file to open and that is to open the OneDrive Sync Client/Settings/About tab and then UNCHECK "Use office applications to sync files that I open." Since we do not want to leave this unchecked, as you can imagine, I have come up with a…

  12. Shared/Collaborative album features similar to Google Photos

    Now that Google Photos free storage is a thing of the past, it is an excellent opportunity for OneDrive to shine. As OneDrive Premium features, I would like the following to be implemented to be on par with Google Photos:

    1/ Collaborative/shared albums - Google Photos had this since inception and it is a great feature to invite collaborators to add photos to a shared album. There is an existing request here: https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/913531-onedrive-sharing-collaboration/suggestions/7160581-co-authored-albums

    2/ Partner sharing -
    Enter or select an email address. You can then invite someone with a Microsoft Account.
    Select which photos to add to your partner…

  13. Add secure and convenient methods for sharing folders

    *English follows Japanese

    Add secure and convenient methods for sharing folders


    ■Description(内容):
    「特定のユーザ」を指定してフォルダ共有した場合、共有されたユーザーは、ブラウザー上で共有フォルダを開くたびにメール アドレスへ送信される確認コードの入力を求められる挙動となっている。
    この方法だと、利用頻度の多いユーザにとって利便性が低下する。

    「リンクを知っているすべてのユーザー」を指定すると、指定したユーザー以外もアクセス可能となるためセキュリティが低下する。
    利便性とセキュリティのバランスが取れている共有機能を実装してほしい。

    If you share a folder with the “Specific people” setting, the users you share it with need to enter a confirmation code sent to their mail address when they access the shared folder.
    This method is inconvenient when sharing with users who use the folder often.
    If you use the “Everyone with the link” setting, users other than those specified can access it, which reduces security.
    Please add a setting that balances security and convenience.

  15. Block Download setting

    Currently the default block download setting is set to allow.

    The default setting should be set to disabled, so it is less permissive, so users have to amend the setting if they want to enable download.

  17. 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.

  18. I want to restrict editing on inter-user internal sharing

    I want to restrict editing on inter-user internal sharing


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business において、テナント内のユーザー間での共有設定に既定で編集を制限する方法がありません。
    共有元ユーザーにて [編集を許可する] のチェックを都度外す必要があるため、既定で編集権限を制限する設定機能を要望します。

    There is no way to restrict editing by default for sharing between users in a tenant on OneDrive for Business.
    Since this requires sharing users to uncheck the “Allow editing” box each time, please add a way to restrict the editing option by default.

  19. 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.

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