  1. Disable Allow edit by default

    When sharing with a link the edition should be blocked by default, because the sharing link is most to visualization than another thing

  3. 提供下載連結給非公司之外部人員下載,外部人員不須註冊之下,點下載連結,便可輕鬆地下載檔案

    我公司安全控管設定為"擁有連結的人員"才能分享檔案,
    但我如何快速地將onedrive檔案提供給非公司之外部人員下載呢?
    可否有一個功能,讓onedrive的使用者將檔案產生連結,提供給公司外部人員下載,
    公司外部人員無須任何的註冊,設定,就能輕鬆地下載檔案呢?
    必竟不是每個下載檔案的人都要編輯,只是要看而已.
    現在的檔案放在onedrive,如要提供下載,必須下載檔案,然後上傳到google雲端,產生連結後,再傳此連結給公司外部人員,使用onedrive後,卻因安全性控管而造成了困擾.希望microsoft能改善此一問題.

  5. Coworker Notification

    A button (like a diner bell!) to quickly notify a coworker within a OneDrive folder that I've finished uploading files that they need/are waiting on

  6. I think that two step verification once challenged should authenticate root authority verification

    not trying to influence special interest... I find that redundant behavior highly irregular!

  7. Allo shared folders to synchronise with private OneDrive accounts

    A family member of mine is working with a business OneDrive account. I've wanted to work with her in one of her folders, therefore she shared one folder with my OneDrive adress (private - non-business)
    Currently I am not able sycnhronize this folder with my account, but it would be great to implement that feature. One main point of OneDrive is collaborative work, which can be only fully achieved when people are able to access files like they are used to.

  8. Picture Ratings and Metadata

    I can't even understand why this BASIC feature is not there yet, as it's useful for many different fields.
    As a professionnal photographer, the possibility for my clients to rate pictures is critical ( 5 stars = selected, for example). Right now they need to either move the file to a "selected" folder or write down the files they like, how ludicrous is this ?
    This kind of metadata is so basic I'm losing my mind it's not there.
    The last similar suggestion I saw was met with ludicrous arrogance by the OneDrive team, why wouldn't you listen to your…

  10. No "read only" or view only option for album sharing?

    I shared photo album with someone and they deleted the pictures in it. I tried to figure out a way to share the album with someone using a link and they get edit access by default.
    Tried exploring if there's any option to make it read only access but there isnt. I lost good pictures from my trip and the person accidetally deleted it.

  11. Hi, I'm Emmanuel and I'm a web developer.

    Yesterday I finally decided to switch from Google Drive to Onedrive in order to sync all my developer work. Just to find out this morning that Onedrive couldn't cope with some naming convention that third party app extensions use in my projects. Went online with a very optimistic approach to find a solution and the best suggestion I could find on the official ondrive page was to manually move all these files in a folder that I wouldn't syncronize. Wow what a brilliant solution. I went back to Google drive. Thanks Team for the brief encounter....

  12. Extend the capacity of basic account (max 1000 gb)

    HI,

    I have a drive with the company I work for and I decided to get one for me . THe problem...I only 1000 gb.
    With the reality of phones capacity, ill suggest you give the option to extend the 1000 gb to 10 000 gb to satisfy the demand.

    I am dying to get more space on my one drive account bricedumanois@gmail.com.... I cant get it..

    SO now I am looking at other cloud option such as google drive and samsung.

    Have a good day.

    Thank you for your product.

    Keep up the good job

  13. Não consigo fazer o backup de arquivos que deletei no meu OneDrive.

    As informações que se tem para o backup são sempre as mesmas. E não me direcionam para uma página onde possa escolher datas especificas, e pastas e arquivos especificos deletados.

  14. Allow Request file from other without enabling Anyone Link

    Allow request file from others should be present without the need to enable Anyone Links.
    Also, if we have to enable Anyone Links an option should be provided to enable it at file or folder level. Currently, enabling this at folder level poses more security risks.

  15. Ability to auto-populate external email addresses from outlook when Sharing a document

    Maybe 50% of my job is sharing documents with external clients. This is done by using the 'Share with Specific Users'.

    However, when you type in email addresses, it will only find people within your tenancy.

    Would save a tonne of time if it also auto-finds/populates external email addresses as well.

    right now the manual steps are:
    - Create new email
    - populate email addresses
    - right-click, copy email
    - Right Click file
    - Share
    - Paste Email Address

  16. tagging - bring it back!

    Tagging for photos and video content has been missing (removed/disabled without any warning by Microsoft well over a year ago). This makes searching and organising large volumes of content impossible.

    This seems such a basic capability for a service that is about storing and managing large volumes of data. No comms, info, updates etc. from Microsoft on this - it means that OneDrive becomes useless for me, and I will have to migrate all my content to other services that do offer better tagging/filter/search capabilities. Hugely frustrating.

  17. OneDrive Migration

    Microsoft should provide OneDrive Migration Facility for business accounts. Lately we changed OneDrive account from Pinnacle-Travel.com to PINNACLE TRAVEL SERVICES PTE LTD. Our data is huge that took many hours to complete the whole transfer. And after transferred we will have to use many hours to set back all the permissions and access to our folders and sub-folders one by one. Our company incurred expensive expenses for changing OneDrive account as IT company charged by hour for the work to be carried out. If there is easy migration process available, we can just handle it on our own and get…

  18. Shorten URLs for sharing properly

    Shorten URLs for sharing properly so the entire URL string is short not just an abbreviated "onedrive" and drop the ! from the string, it breaks the URL. How this kind of work gets through QA is mind blowing.

  19. block download at folder level

    My users are asking for an option to block download at the folder level. They have folders with multiple files and wish to prevent download of all those files without setting Block Download on each individual file.
