  1. OneDrive space for a company or group should be able to be combined

    OneDrive space of a member of a group is limited to 1 TB. The enterprise admin should be given the opportunity to combine these spaces to a larger volume, where a shared and well-organized library can be placed, instead of users sharing different items located in own OneDrive spaces and then also allocate smaller spaces then 1 TB to users.

  2. Allow a person to belong to more than one onedrive account,

    allow a user joe@abc.com to connect to multiple OneDrive accounts. I volunteer at multiple organizations, and each has a OneDrive account for me.

  3. Remove un-synced library from explorer

    I stopped syncing a shared document library but the folder remained in my file explorer.

    Because the un-synced folder remained in explorer I accidentally deleted the other synced library, which deleted all of the files in the library. Removing the un-synced folder from explorer immediately would prevent this user error in the future.

  4. Allow same access options in File Request as in file sharing

    File Request feature is fantastic and has been very much needed. Thank you for implementing this feature. However, when I test it out, I noticed that access privilege settings are not as granular as file shares. For example, in deciding who has the privilege to upload the files, I am given the option to copy the link or to email someone the link. The latter doesn't even send a separate email with access code (which happens when you share a file with an email address). I can see the more relaxed approach in requesting for files as those receiving the…

  5. Remove geo-location information from photos when sharing

    Have an option to remove personal meta data from photos in a folder. This would be useful for privacy when sharing photos with a public link.
    Currently all photos taken from a smartphone will by default include very accurate location information (which is fine for my own private photos) but when sharing them I want to be able to easily remove all that information.

  6. File Limit Makes OneDrive and SharePoint Worthless

    We are currently using Google Drive and DropBox to share files on our devices. We have Office 365, so we thought we would try OneDrive, but the two reasons it will never work are:


    1. File/Folder Limits are too low

    2. SharePoint integration

    Google Drive is so much easier to setup, you don't have to deal with something complex like SharePoint for something so simple, and you aren't handcuffed by file/folder limitations.

    As it currently stands, OneDrive is worse than worthless - we wasted our time even trying it out.

    It also seems the sync client is not nearly as good as…

  7. Password Protection For Shared OneDrive objects should extend to Windows File Explorer.

    Password Protected Objects in OneDrive should have protection extended to when that object is viewed in Windows File Explorer. Presently, as of 11/14/2019, it is the design of OneDrive to allow Password Protection on Shared folders. As long as the shared & protected object is viewed in a browser then a password prompt secures the object. However, if that object is Added To My OneDrive (aka viewable within Windows 10 File Explorer) then the password prompt goes away while access to the content remains. This is a security flaw in my opinion and not a feature. Microsoft support confirmed that…

  9. Ensure multiple people can read documents without synchronization issues

    Referring ticket # 17174503

    "When two or more people are working on a document at the same time, they might make changes that conflict with each other. Conflicts can occur when one person works offline and then saves the document to the server. Conflicts can also occur when two people work on the same part of a document at exactly the same time. When edits conflict, the file would display a notification the next time that a user tries to save the document. The conflicts must be resolved before you can save the document to the cloud.

  10. Download shared files without sign-up

    Currently, files can only be viewed, not downloaded without a OneDrive about when shared. That's a real hybrids given the amount of people who are NOT in OneDrive. Sharing becomes almost a useless feature that way as you can't keep asking people to sign up just to be able to receive your shares!

  11. Provide option to NOT share specific Office files (xlsm specifically) via VBA on OneDrive business

    I have complex, macro-enabled Excel (xlsm) files that work fine on OneDrive for Business as long as the "Use Office application to sync Office files that I open" is NOT checked in the OneDrive settings. The Office sync functionality and ability to work collaboratively is great, but it doesn't work with my (and others as I found while searching for my issue) workbooks. The file has backup and save macros and slows down immensely and throws strange errors for my clients ("High service activity", "File wasn't uploaded because we cannot merge change made by another user" when there is only…

  12. Have the ability to consolidate the entire OneDrive space included in Office 365 Familly into a single OneDrive space.

    Thus, we could use the 6To included even if the 6 Office shares licences are not used.
    One could consider that the administrators could allocate space quotas for shared Office accounts or use the 6To with the whole family without restriction (a bit like one would do with a NAS).

  13. Sharing excel file by embedding with disabling download link

    I want to share an excel file by embedding links with the users with facility only to see and and edit the file but are not able to download file. I have tried it through onedrive embed facility, but users are able to download the file through open workbook online facility. However, while creating embed link on onedrive, onedrive asks whether to prevent downloading the file, but it is of no use, because the same link is always available on right hand side of the file when it is opened online by the user.
    It is requested to the team…

  14. OneDrive for Business Client - Allow User the ability to add folders to 'Shared'

    Currently the 'Shared with Me' folder data is presented from backend auto-index.
    Users can Remove Docs and Folders from the View - but cannot ADD folders.
    We need control to ADD and set folders in the 'Shared' view.

  15. Fix the different behaviour for the Web interface and Mobile apps for shared and "Added to my OneDrive" folders

    When the shared by others folder with Edit permissions is "Added to my OneDrive", the view of this folder from the "Files" location allows you to RENAME the folder. The mobile app (both iOS and Android) manages to revert the folder's name back to the original (since it belongs to another user/account), but the Web interface (and respectively, the sync engine) keeps showing the re-named folder in "Files", while in "Shared" tab it looks as original. To avoid the confusion, the option "RENAME" should be removed from the shared folders, that were added to my OneDrive, if it is not…

  16. New option: keep local file

    During a reconnection, if OneDrive can not synchonize a file, it renames the local file by adding the name of the PC and adds the cloud file. Add an option to do the opposite: keep the local file and add the cloud version by adding "-OneDrive"

  17. Hide, Remove, or Disable Shared Libraries in OneDrive

    I have hidden a SharePoint Library, however it can be viewed on the Shared Libraries section of OneDrive. How do I disable this? The hidden library should not be viewed by users at all. Ale so, the default SharePoint view set to show no items in the library is not what shows when the library is accessed from OneDrive. All files can be viewed in OneDrive which should not be the case. I will accept any workaround anyone may have, but there should be uniformity in how files and data are configured across applications.

  18. Multiple unique share links for a file

    We would like the ability to create multiple randomized public download links for a single file. Each link can have its own separate password or link expiration.

    This would allow you to control access to a file to individuals not a part of your organization through different links, instead of creating a single link with global permissions for everybody.

    It also opens up the door for other features, such as limiting the number of downloads and notifying a user that a file has been downloaded while still being able to share with multiple people.

    OneDrive for Business: we need to see who files are shared with without having to select each individual file and click into Manage...
    Suggestions: Add a column to the view; include an export feature to view file access rights en masse (we have a ton of shared files and have urgent needs to removed shared file access to employees who have left the organization but retain Office 365 rights)

  20. Emailing from OneDrive

    It would be nice to have an option of emailing all the people you're sharing a folder with - a kind of one email that all of them will receive but don't see other recipients.

    In my case, I need to notify them of upcoming changes both to the file and to their ability to access them.
