  3. Reduce the size of the "green tick" for synchronised files.

    I find the size of the green check mark / tick and other icons used to verify file synchronisation, covers 3/4 of the Microsoft icon that indicates which program the file type is associated to. This makes it difficult to see at a glance what file type you are looking at. I have several documents across multiple Microsoft programs (and other programs too) that have the same or very similar file name. This check or tick or upload icon, makes it extremely difficult to see which file is which and you usually have to look at the "Type" column instead.

  4. Only one copy open at a time.

    For my job, we have to constantly ask our fellow employees if anyone has a document open before we open it ourselves. We would find it extremely useful if it were possible to have documents we share with each other only accessible to one user at a time.

  5. Buenos días, Mi marido y yo tenemos dos cuentas. Estamos pensando en abrir una cuenta de Office365 hogar. Estamos prbando a poder sincroniza

    Now it is possible to share the folder Pictures, but it would be perfect for families to share this folder as it were one unic folder for both users in the way that all the photos of the family can be sync in the same folder with the automatic charge.

  6. AutoCAD/Adobe and Onedrive Sync

    We are a large Design and Engineering department trying to move from local server to the cloud as this would make our life easier especially while working with different offices globaly.

    We use Autocad with a lot of Xrefs. We found that across our team, when someone open a CAD file, it disappears from all the other peoples onedrives on their computers.

    This is an issue because if this file is reloaded, it disappears and shows as missing, until the person that is editing it, saves and closes it.

    If you work on a local server, or even with google…

  9. Sharing files from 3rd party apps - Include option to search for folder

    Situation:
    I often correspond with clients over text & Whatsapp. They send me important information that I need to save on their client folders. Each client has a subfolder on Our Company's OneDrive Site.

    Problem:
    There is no option to search for the folder when uploading the file (e.g. pdf/screenshot from Whatsapp/Text) from a 3rd party app to OneDrive.
    I can only get to the client's folder by scrolling.
    We have a few thousand clients and it is not feasible to scroll to the client’s name every time I need to upload something to his file.
    It creates additional admin…

    As a university we would like to have the ability to prevent specific security groupd from external sharing from their OneDrive for Business. They are in a security group, so being able to limit sharing by group would be great.

  18. Excel links to local drive when opening SharePoint synced file with OneDrive

    When linking an Excel file opening the synced one with OneDrive of a SharePoint online site library, the link is created to the file location in the local drive of the user instead of to the address in SharePoint.

    This makes the links don't work for other users opening that file.

    If you open the file to link directly from the SharePoint site library it is correctly created.

    For SharePoint sites synchronized with OneDrive the links should be created to SharePoint, otherwise this is a limitation for collaborating with SharePoint Online files between users using OneDrive Sync.

  19. Integrating SharePoint and OneDrive with Autodesk Revit

    We are construction company and I'm extremely happy to see one step in the right direction that Microsoft Office 365 is integrating with DWG.. but both MS and Autodesk already knows that AEC industry is moving towards BIM and they should go ahead and attach A360 viewer like thing with SharePoint. As a large partner of MS as a construction company we will really like to see that MS is doing thing in this direction which will increase our usage of platform which in turn benefits all of us.
