  1. Allow shared, read-only Excel documents to be edited during session, but not saved.

    Allow sharing of Excel documents in a way that will allow users to make temporary changes to the document but prevent those changes from being saved to the shared file. For example, a worksheet that performs calculations or generates a report based on user input.

  2. Office apps Word, Excel slow saving when File Collaboration setting is ON in OneDrive

    Office apps Word and Excel are very slow the first time you save a document when the File Collaboration setting is ON in OneDrive. This is because Office saves the file to the cloud even if the file has not yet been shared. A better method would be to only save the file to the cloud first if the file has been shared, otherwise save the file to the local OneDrive folder and allow OneDrive to sync the file to the cloud.

  4. OneDrive and SharePoint Support for Git Repositories

    Would be really useful if we can leverage OneDrive in conjunction with SharePoint to host Bear Git repositories. We tried creating a Git Bear repository on SharePoint and accessed and shared it through OneDrive but ended up with OneDrive being 'confused' and most of its folders stayed in 'Pending Sync' state. We had consequently removed all Git folders and reinstalled OneDrive to get back to normal.

    Having Git repositories on SharePoint Online and accessing it through OneDrive would give developers a great cloud based Git environment !!

    Salam

  5. Allow attach onedrive file from synced folder to outlook similar desktop file

    We are using OneDrive for business in our company, seems users struggling when they have opened file from synced folder of oneDrive and can't attach it to outlook till they close the file!

    but if file is opened from desktop (not synced with onedrive) you can attach it to outlook while you are open it!

    is there is workaround or fix for this?

    Regards,
    Ehab

  6. Allow Drag and Drop folders and files

    Allow Drag and Drop folders and files from and to - Emails, Calendar & especially Teams.
    The folders here address any folders (with security in mind), i.e. to avoid download files and then only share steps.

  8. Hybrid File Server Synchronisation with OneDrive and Integrate with Compliance Centre for Data Classification, DLP and IRM

    I work with many companies where a hybrid approach is required between OneDrive for Business and an on-premise file server or even better deisgn OneDrive for Business to be a true Enterpise file sharing solution with on-premise functionality. The architure should have the ability to have traditional file services on-premise that sync to OneDrive for Business and provide the ability to have the same data set across multiple branch offices. This would allow roaming using to access the data via OneDrive on any device and still allow back office personel to update files as per usual. File Sync is not…

  9. Allow shared files to be placed in the personal vault.

    The personal vault is a great new addition to one drive. Providing a capability to share documents in the vault would be great. I am thinking probably like legal documents with your spouse would be a good example

  11. Synchronisierung von Ordner

    in Onedrive personal (MS Konto) besteht die Möglichkeit geteilte Ordner zu meinem OneDrive hinzuzufügen, sodass ich diese im Explorer sehe und bearbeiten kann. Warum geht das nicht mit Shareponit bzw. mit OneDrive for Business?
    Diese Funktion wäre super für das gesamte Bauwesen, da hier immer mehrere Firmen zusammenarbeiten und es haben immer mehr Office 365.
    vielen dank

  12. Display the process of the updates and the number of remaining files until it is completed via App.

    Display the process of the updates and the number of remaining files until it is completed via App.
    ******************************
    ■Description(内容): ​​
    ​現在のOneDrive アプリのファイルのアップロードと自動アップロード機能は、ファイル数が多量の場合に「アップロード中」の表示が消える。残りファイル数が表示されないことで、所用時間や、アップロードが完了したことを確認できないという困難があります。
    そのため、アップロードが完了するまではプロセスが進行中である旨の表示と残りのファイル数を視覚的に確認できるよう機能を改善して欲しい。​

    For now, OneDrive app's file upload/auto-uploading feature confirms that the “Uploading” is not displaying if there are many files existed. By not displaying the number of remaining files, there is a difficulty to confirm the required time and upload completion timing by users.

    Please add the feature that the user can be visually confirmed by displays for the process is ongoing and the number of remaining files until the upload…

  13. OneDrive for Business - summarize info about download after share time expiration

    When you working with your bussinnes partner and teams (and you sharing drawings, documents, 3D data, etc.), will be very helpful to know if your partner or partners really downloaded send data (1st overview it in OneDrive, 2nd send summarize email notification).

    Example: You are working in team of project with external partner (on your side 5 persons, partner side 7 persons). You working on mechanical machine concept (3D data modeling) and you need to know if responsible person downloaded the data (overview of download matrix: NAME OF PERSON, DOWNLOAD (Yes or No), DATE OF DOWNLOAD, TIME OF DOWNLOAD).
    Then…

  14. I would be grateful if I could choose when I want the data to be synchronized to OneDrive, and not just to have it done automatically.

  18. Add a "write" rights option to a shared folder.

    Create "write-only" access to a shared folder which would allow private uploads viewable only by the owner or those with "read" rights. Example: We work with over a thousand nonprofits that submit bylaws for editing. Rather than creating over a thousand folders (one for each nonprofit) we could create one repositiory folder with "write" access only.

  20. Allow users to view files that have been shared with them via Files on Demand feature instead of needing to log into the portal view.

    The ability to view files shared with you through the Files on Demand feature rather than having to take extra steps in accessing the online view of OneDrive.
