  1. Get Notification when a shared Office Document is modified

    With Office and OneDrive integrated, especially on mobile devices, it would be excellent to get an notification every time a shared Office Document had been modified or is been modified at that moment. It would make collaboration a more streamlined affair.

  3. Allow annotation of files

    Our organization is evaluating moving from Box to OneDrive for Business but one of the popular features our users really enjoy is being able to annotate files directly from the web viewer

  5. Sync only office files

    Option for specific folders to sync only office files such as word docs or excel files. That way I have my automatic save and don't have to store videos etc in a different folder

  6. Just share the current file / folder version

    Shared files are always visible to the receiver in the most recent version. There should be an option that the recipient can not see the subsequent file updates.

  7. Remove overlapping legacy "Share" interface elements from Windows File Explorer

    In Windows 10, the Windows File Explorer interface still displays interface elements in the contextual menus on files/folders and in the Ribbon to share files with specific people through non-OneDrive methods. This ends up confusing users who don't realize that this isn't OneDrive sharing.

  8. RMS on OneDrive

    Sharing is a very good functionality for private as well as for business use. But it leaves the owner without control what further happen with the shared information. E.g when further shared, dowloade and stored elsewhere etc.

    Why not amend the possibility to set IRM protection on OneDrive?
    At least for OneDrive for business (I.e. In a similar way as it already can be done for a SharePoint library.)

    Should also reduce consequences of a user mistake.

  9. Remove access to all the subfolders with one click

    ParentFolder has tens of subfolders. Every subfolder is shared with a different person. I want to stop sharing the subfolders by clicking something like 'stop sharing the children' in the ParentFolder details pane. Now I have to go to every subfolder's details pane and remove the shared access there manually.

  10. Set default filename format for automatically uploaded files

    For example, images/video captured on the Xbox One and uploaded to OneDrive will generate a "MM-DD-YYYYhh-mm-ss" type of filename (i.e., "05-01-201912-00-00AM").
    ¶ Personally I would prefer the option to set the default filename to "YYYY-MM-DD
    hh-mm-ss" (i.e., "2019-05-0112-00-00AM"), since this would order the files by year, then month, then day, instead of the honestly awkward month first, then day, then year.
    ¶ Likewise, being able to go from a 12-hour format to a 24-hour format ("00-00-00" instead of "12-00-00_AM") would be useful.

  11. Lors de partage de dossier de plus de 2go, la personne recevant le lien ne devrait pas avoir à se loger.

    Quand j'envoie des dossier de plus de 2go, je ne souhaite pas que la personne recevant le lien doivent s'identifier et avoir un compte. Je ne comprends pas cette limite absurde.

  13. Consistently accurate naming of Office 365 links to OneDrive for Business

    The Office 365 home page and app launcher - to name two examples - include links to OneDrive for Business, but the button says, simply, OneDrive.

    My understanding is that OneDrive is a separate product, intended for personal non-corporate use, and calling one by the other's name can mislead, cause confusion, and hinder adoption, amongst other issues.

    If agreed, please add the missing words "for Business" in the buttons/shortcuts that point to OneDrive for Business and not to OneDrive throughout Office 365.

    There are enough names and name changes in the world of Microsoft, so let's use names accurately and…

  14. prevent sharing

    Block a security group from sharing externaly

    As a university we would like to have the ability to prevent specific security groupd from external sharing from their OneDrive for Business. They are in a security group, so being able to limit sharing by group would be great.

  15. Share link with file name

    When I create a share link from my file and send it to my students throught whatsapp, its only a really long text link with no way to identiy the file name, I understand this may be for a security resaon but when I copy in links from other platforms it then generates a popup box with the filename. It would be great to just have the filelink embedded with a tiny url and a popup filename.

  16. folder modified date

    SharePoint Online and OneDrive Document Library Folder modified date should update when contents are updated.

    Currently, the folder modified date is the date the folder was created or renamed rather than when the contents within the folder were changed. Can be misleading to think that a folder contents have not changed, when if fact they have been changed. Same issue on SharePoint Online and OneDrive experiences.

    See SharePoint Online User Voice request: https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration/suggestions/36005275-sharepoint-online-document-library-folder-modifie

  17. cache

    In file explorer when the onedrive is synced with machine, it doesnt cache the email addresses for the recipients with whom you have shared the files/folders in past.

  19. My wife and I each have a personal vault. We don't need one for each. We need one to share where we can keep all of our financial data.

    In addition to our existing OneDrive files, one single family personal vault. This would allow my wife and I to more easily both have access to sensitive financial information.

  20. synced folders new device

    In my day to day job, I come across a lot of users that have many folders synced to OneDrive from Share point.

    What would be great is, if when their device fails, needs rebuilding or they do something to really mess things up, as users do to be helpful.. When logging back into OneDrive it offers to re add the folders that you may have had on an old device/installation of OneDrive. Even if it was a list to then select relevant folders
