  1. Prevent users from accepting OneDrive access requests from an External 365 Tenant

    Our scenario:
    • A member of our staff (In Azure AD) receives a OneDrive shared link to a folder. The shared link is from an external customer, and the customer is not added as a guest to our tenant. (Not in Azure AD)
    • The staff member accepts the shared link request and is now able to upload sensitive documents to the folder link they received.
    • As an Office 365 Admin, I have no audit logs that show a user has accessed the folder or uploaded the documents to the folder.

    I would like to request this to be…

  3. You need to rethink sharing from the ground up

    I have been trying to collaborate with a colleague by sharing a folder so that we can both access a set of Office documents. I have been shocked by how poorly setup the sharing system is in OneDrive. There are multiple systems (Onedrive, Teams, Sharepoint) that are incompatible with one another. There are options for granting "direct access" and creating a "shared link". The sharing system is not intuitive and is unnecessarily confusing. It seems like MS has been pushing together different tools without rethinking the total user experience. My suggestion is that you scrap the entire model and start…

  4. Display of items shared with security groups

    ユーザーに対し共有を行った際は表示されるが、グループを指定し共有を行うと [あなたと共有] にアイテムが追加されない。
    グループを指定し共有を行っても [あなたと共有] にアイテムが追加される機能の実装を希望いたします。

    At present, when you share something with a security group, it is not added to “Shared with me”.
    While items are displayed here when they are shared on a user basis, they are not shown when specifying a group to share with.
    Please make it so that items appear here even when they are shared with a group.

  12. Provide means to force download or open in app for files > 50MB

    It is very difficult to share files externally that are > 50MB. The sharing dialog box should allow options to force download or open in app so that the sender does not have to manipulate the link.

  13. Improve warning message when copying sharing links to email message

    Point to note is that this only appears when external sharing within your tenant is set to New and Existing guests or more restrictive. It doesn't apply when most permissive is Anyone.
    Currently, when sharing a link from OneDrive using Outlook, you receive an error message
    This link isn't associated with the account you're sending from."
    It turns out that this is simply a warning and the link will work if the recipient is one of those on the To or CC list. It prevents the link being forwarded on, which is what we want in our situation.

    The proposal…

    OneDrive function, other than checking in/out, to provide exclusive control of file updates


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive で共有しているファイルを複数のユーザーに共有し、各ユーザーに対して "編集" 以上の権限を割り当てる環境においての要望です。
    二重の更新を防止するため、一人のユーザーが開いている状態で別のユーザーが開いた場合に読み取り専用ファイルと認識させ、二人目以降のユーザーの Office クライアントに「このファイルは使用中です。」などのメッセージを表示、および当該メッセージには使用中のユーザー名を表示させる制御の実装を希望しています。
    チェック イン / チェック アウト機能で、チェック アウトしているユーザー以外がファイルを編集できないという最低限の制御が可能なことは確認していますが、運用上、都度チェック イン / チェック アウトの操作を行うことが困難なため、チェック イン / チェック アウト以外に、上記動作を可能とする機能の拡充を希望します。

    This request is for use in environments where files are shared via OneDrive with multiple users and each user is given editing or higher permissions.
    To prevent double updates, if one user has a file open and another then also opens it, it should be recognized as being read only, and the Office client of…

  15. Make it possible to use the same sharing links after UPN changes

    *English follows Japanese

    UPN 変更後に共有リンクを引き続き利用できるようにしてほしい。
    Make it possible to use the same sharing links after UPN changes


    ■Description(内容):
    ユーザーのUPNを変更すると、OneDrive for Business の URL が変更されるため、UPN 変更前に共有していたファイルのリンクにアクセスしてもエラーになる。
    再共有を行う必要が生じるため、UPNを変更しても引き続き共有していたファイルのリンクにアクセスできるようにしてほしい。

    If you change a user’s UPN, URLs for OneDrive for Business are changed, so attempting to use sharing links issued before the change returns an error.
    Since this means it is necessary to re-issue the sharing link, please make it so that you can continue to use the same links even if the UPN is changed.

    About searching for people in the OneDrive sync client

    In OneDrive for Business in a browser, when sharing a file via its ‘…’ and ‘Share’, it is possible to search not only for UPNs but also use Japanese to search for users, but in the OneDrive client, right clicking and selecting ‘Share’ does not allow sharing via name search.
    This means that you cannot search for people in Japanese in the…

  17. 6 TB available in Microsoft 365 Family, even for groups of less than 6 people

    Not all families have 6 members. Families with 2, 3, 4... people and one suscription to Microsoft 365 Family should get available 6 TB in total, not only 1 TB maximum each.

  18. Personal Photo album creation

    I have enjoyed creating a large family heritage photo file on Onedrive Live and subsequently moving the photos to an external Album creation company for final creation and printing. I would now like to be able to SAVE the Onedrive Live created file in File Explorer and then be able to copy the photos to a USB for the benefit of family members, thus pre-serving their heritage. My issue is that whilst the photos copy into a file they DO NOT APPEAR IN THE ORIGINAL ORDER, thus defeating the purpose. Can this be resolved in the future?

  20. Allow a drag and drop feature when a folder is shared with you.

    Please can you add this feature Google drive does this really well.

    In my organisation multiple files and folders are shared on a daily basis. I would like to know if it is possible to allow any files/folder that are shared with me I can drag and drop into my personal folder. I really cannot find anything in the shared with me files this becomes disorganised and problematic.
