  1. OneDrive for Business External Sharing permission set to "Anyone"

    Please allow to set OneDrive for Business External Sharing to "Anyone" without changing SharePoint External Sharing permission.

    Currently, we cannot change OneDrive for Business External Sharing permission to "Anyone" if SharePoint External Sharing permission is set not to share with External organization.

    We want to enable this feature so we can set Expiration Date and Password when sharing files to Anyone thru OneDrive for Business.

  3. Sincronizar_Carpetas_Diferente_Nombre

    En mi organización el uso de archivos es común y surge la necesidad de que cada usuario personalice el nombre de sus carpetas sin perder la estructura que el administrador le da para no perder control asi como tambien, darle el poder a las personas de soporte de meter este tipo de quejas y/o sugerencias ya que ellos no pueden hacer nada y te remiten a este buzón a contar la historia por enésima vez consecutiva perdiendo el interés sobre un simple ticket NO RESUELTO.

  5. IMPROVE VIDEO SHARING

    I suggest this is mandatory. There is a option to embed video on e.g. a blog. I did this several years ago on a blog with a large amount of kids-soccer-videos. At one point, these videos started to AUTOPLAY on my blog (originally they did not), obviously creating havoc on my blog. It was quite a job to correct this error.

    I did so by replaceing the word EMBED with the word DOWNLOAD in this embed link. Now the blog is back to normal, thank god. It does not autostart videos.

    SUGGESTION: Make a more advanced video sharing feature more…

  8. Hide documents from Delve, that are shared with "link sharing"

    If user shares document with link inside organization, this sharing option creates illusion that only users who know exact link, can access document.
    Everyone in organization can see document if they open user page in Delve.
    All documents that user shared with link are publicly available to all workers inside company in Delve.

  9. Subscribe on Photo Albums, notify subscribers on new photos, videos

    I want to share an Album (not a folder!) with my daughters, where I put short videos from there sport trainings, so they could view and analyze them.

    I want they be notified (in application) each time I add an item (video) to that Album.

    And yes, I want new videos be on top, not the bottom of the album.

  11. Download Shared file instead of open it online

    When you send a single file, allow users to download them instead of opening the file on Excel/power point/word online. That's a pain when you receive a large file and have to wait long to let it open and then download it or open it on your desktop.

  12. search functionality on links outside of organisation. This is already ab

    Search Functionality on documents shared to a user outside of your organisation via web link.

    Dropbox already have the facility to search over any folders shared in a specific link to a user outside of an organisation . This is extremely helpful when there is a large mount of data shared over multiple folder and sub folders including the OCR text within a PDF.
    Why does OneDrive not have this functionality?

  13. Control edits

    I want people that I share a document with to have to get my permission as owner of the document before any changes are made to that document. They could edit but the suggested changes don’t get made unless I approve them. This is how google allows collaboration but the owner still had control. Thanks

  14. Maximum link Expiration - Allow exceptions to Tenant policy

    We greatly appreciate the maximum link expiration time policy that was recently implemented to OneDrive admin center.

    We have several use cases where we would like to exclude certain Office365 groups /SharePoint sites from this tenant level policy. Please add the ability to modify this setting on a per site level or white-list particular settings as an exception from this policy.

    Thank you!

  16. Create OneDrive Temporary Photos "Link" Slideshow

    Apples IOS implementation is perfect.

    Select multiple photos including folders.
    Hit share which creates a temporary link.
    Provide link to third parties.
    Third parties will see a slideshow.

    Quick, easy, useful.. Currently OD does not have any elegant way to share multiple images on the fly.

  18. Adding a text editor / code editor

    Mew feature request:

    Adding a text editor for creating and editing text files will be great.
    This will allow working with source code files such c++, html, javascript, and working with many simple text files used by many apps.

    Would be great for collaborating with coworkers.

    This feature should be added in web version as well as in desktop and mobile versions.

  20. Add a "SYNC NOW" icon / shortcut

    This tech is supposed to be all about the cloud, in real time. I want to move from one device to the next in 2 mins and have confidence that every device has the current document version. The user needs to know when the sync has started / completed.
    Pls add a prominent shortcut icon to the header "area" that allows the user to manually start the sync process.
