    • Block a security group from sharing

      As a school we would like to have the ability to prevent students from sharing out of their OneDrive for Business. They are in a security group, so being able to limit sharing by group would be great.

          • Tracking shared file access

            I need to know who has accessed the shared files on One Drive- You should have a list of who accessed and or downloaded files and the date.

            • Mass file deletion notifications Language

              Mass file deletion notifications in OneDrive for Business and SharePoint are currently sent in the Default Language for the Site not the user's own Language. This is confusing for the end user. It's not possible to change the Default Language after a Site is Created. These notifications should be sent in the Default Language for the User's Profile, not the Site Default.

                              It might be a good idea to have a person that is marked as a manager whom gets notifications when the files are updated. Then he or she can assess the workmanship of work done without calling or to go check if work was done.

                                  Currently in OneDrive for Business sharing feature, we cannot restrict users within our organization from sharing items.

                                  For security reasons, when sharing items among internal users, implement the feature that allows users who attempt to share an item with others to share the item with only the department/team (or specific users) they belong to at that moment.

                                  Thank you for your consideration.

                                    • Open Office files which are larger than 30MB without getting an error message.

                                      Open Office files which are larger than 30MB without getting an error message.
                                      Office files open by default in Office Online. If you try to open a file larger than 30MB or even worse if you share this file with others they will get an error message with an option to open the file with your locally installed office. Users mostly do not read this error message.

                                      • Upload only link to customers with no access to open files uploaded

                                        I would like to have ability to edit permissions for outside firms to only allow uploading to a folder on OneDrive. i.e. we can send customers a link to a OneDrive folder that only allows them to upload files and not open those files. Currently if I remove the ability to open files in permissions it also removes the ability to add files.

                                          Why isn't YouTube an available partner to share video files with? YouTube has a rich API that can be integrated with.
