  11. Allow Syncing of Files Shared with Me

    I would really like the ability to sync the files that people share with me to Windows Explorer like I can sync the documents that I share with others.

    It would make accessing them much quicker and I honestly don't understand why it isn't already a feature.

    We feel inconvenient that the retention period of the Recycle Bin on OneDrive for Business is set by default so that there is no way to modify the value of period.

  17. Add ability to extend expiration date for shared links

    I always set an expiration date when sharing files/folders (especially anonymously). I tend to set these expiration dates in the near future. It would be nice to be able to extend these as necessary.

  19. Share links dangerously default to view and edit

    Copied wholesale from another link as it appears to be archived:
    https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive-archive/suggestions/15445719-share-links-dangerously-default-to-view-and-edit

    File sharing currently defaults to creating a link with both view AND edit permissions. This link is retained, without any indication to the user, even when the user deselects the allow edit permissions box.

    This is a VERY dangerous security flaw because some search engines are capable of discovering these links by brute force. I had one of my excel files completely *nuked* by an anonymous rando that had found the view+edit link that I never knew had been created (even though I only ever explicitly shared a…

  20. Creating a Unidirectional anonymous syncronization folder

    my idea is to have the ability of create a folder in a work computer (non personal or private), linked to an onedrive account, but, nobody can access to another folders of the account, only an unidrectional syncro folder.

    Resuming, a folder in a public work pc, conected by onedrive pc software, and you can syncro, upload and download content inside this folder, but you cannot change configurations, or see another folders or archives of the main onedrive account. you can only see your asigned public folder. maybe the email of the main account, and nothing more.
