  1. I have a folder that cannot be shared to one drive. Allow me the choice to not sync it. Does not have to be. So stop with forcing be issu

    Should be option to not share and one drive should be happy and not be in face because it can't.

  2. I'd like to protect some folders and files from unintentional delet or modifications and therefore make them modifiable only from one PC,

    Hi, I'd like to protect my files from unintentional deletions, modifications…so having only one main device able to edit, while the others are only to view, but not edit. This can easily happen if you use onedrive at home with multiple devices handled by kids… I believe also for business it would be useful thanks.

  3. 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.

  4. "Request files" is not available

    If I try to use "Request File" that was rolled out in November 2019,
    The message "Anyone links with folder edit" needs to be enabled " is displayed and is not available.

    My organization doesn't currently allow “anyone with tne link".
    Imagine a scene where many members in an organization submit reports to OneDrive.
    In the case of a shared folder, participants can view each other's reports,
    which creates risks such as data tampering and accidentally deleting other people's files,
    which is not good.

    If “Request files” are available in your organization, the problem will be solved.
    I hope the…

  5. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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!).

  11. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  16. Add the function to specify the sharing range

    I would like to publish PowerPoint files saved on OneDrive on website created with WordPress, but not to allow viewers to copy or download my file.
    I would like to share the content, not the skill (e.g. how to create animations, )that is needed to creat the file.

    So, I hope that OneDrive add a function to specify the sharing range if you publish files using embed code or shared link URL.

  18. 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.

  19. use account alias to share one drive links

    Account Aliases are a great feature in Microsoft Office. It allows you to protect your account id while communicating and adds a later of protection to your primary email account from breach events and maintain privacy. While you can send emails from aliases in your account, when I share one drive links, my primary account id is displayed. We should be allowed to share links from our aliases to protect our account. This should be a universal features across all Microsoft Office products.
