  1. OneDrive for Business: "Anyone can edit" does NOT, in fact, allow anyone to edit :(

    So when sharing from OneDrive, the default option clearly states "Anyone with the link can edit" and the official documentation (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/share-onedrive-files-and-folders-9fcc2f7d-de0c-4cec-93b0-a82024800c07) states that the intended behaviour of this grants anyone with edit permissions 'copy, move, edit, rename, sharing, deletion' rights.

    A recent change to OneDrive for security reasons has replaced edit permissions with very restrictive 'guest contributor' permissions.

    Can you please remove the wording "Anyone with this link can edit" because the links are guest-contributor links that CANNOT edit, and additionally feature a completely dead Sign-In button, so that even if someone has been specifically granted full edit…

  2. Need an option to lock sharing and editing option temporarily for about one or two hour without notifying others

    Hi,

  3. Sharing with External Users

    Sharing with External Users
    Share a file with 2 external people in OneDrive, a person with a guest account (A) and a person without a guest account (B)
    Message saying both user A and B are outside of your organization (good)
    Click copy link - shows error message: "You cannot create a secure link containing both people inside and outside of your organization." => hard to understand for a user
    Ideally, the OneDrive link should work, with a guest account for A and a guest account proposal for B.

  5. Right Click "Stop Sharing" option

    It would be great if there was a "stop sharing" option in the right click menu option when right-clicking on a file or folder.

  6. Be able to show folders that are not being synced on my pc or device.

    Be able to show folders that are not being synced on my pc or device.
    So we know that perhaps something is missing in a sync.

  8. Include 'Shared With Me' folder in Office Apps 'Open' file menu.

    When using the 'Open' feature of the file menu in all Office apps it would be very useful to be able to see the 'Shared With Me' folder as well as my personal OneDrive for Business 'Files' folder.

  9. Synchronisierung von Ordner

    in Onedrive personal (MS Konto) besteht die Möglichkeit geteilte Ordner zu meinem OneDrive hinzuzufügen, sodass ich diese im Explorer sehe und bearbeiten kann. Warum geht das nicht mit Shareponit bzw. mit OneDrive for Business?
    Diese Funktion wäre super für das gesamte Bauwesen, da hier immer mehrere Firmen zusammenarbeiten und es haben immer mehr Office 365.
    vielen dank

  11. nest shared folders just like google drive - the separate shared folders are insane for pc syncing and continuity of data filing

  12. Add more file tracking and notification

    Each user needs to be able to easily track their own shared files for download, access, edit, etc. Every other viable file sharing service has these capabilities. Each user should also be able to easily get email or direct notifications for any of the tracked changes listed above.

    We're a law firm and we need to share files and then be able to confirm when they are downloaded, accessed, edited, etc. We also need the option for email or direct notifications so that there are little to no delays to confirm said actions.

    We currently use Accellion and it does…

  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. Allow shared files to be placed in the personal vault.

    The personal vault is a great new addition to one drive. Providing a capability to share documents in the vault would be great. I am thinking probably like legal documents with your spouse would be a good example

  15. Adding the column "Date Created" for folders instead of using "Date Modified".

    Adding the column "Date Created" for folders instead of using "Date Modified" Using "Date Modified" for folder creation date only causes confusion among users. Currently, the "Date Modified" column for a folder does not change when a file is created or modified in that folder. there should be a column "Date Created" that shows the actual date when the folder was created. Then there should be a "Date Modified" column that actually shows the date and time when someone added, deleted or modified a file inside the folder

  16. Add a "write" rights option to a shared folder.

    Create "write-only" access to a shared folder which would allow private uploads viewable only by the owner or those with "read" rights. Example: We work with over a thousand nonprofits that submit bylaws for editing. Rather than creating over a thousand folders (one for each nonprofit) we could create one repositiory folder with "write" access only.

  17. schedule a shared folder for deletion

    The ability to share a folder with a contact and schedule that folder for deletion in X number of days.
    so that After the time span has passed the folder is deleted and until that point in time anyone the folder has been shared with is automatically informed that the folder will no longer be available.

    I personally see the rise of digital handoff of data becoming a larger and larger issue... for example a breakup or divorce that comes with a few years worth of OneDrive photos... we don't want to have the folder shared indefinitely as this is…

  18. 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).

  19. Predefined Periodic Activation of OneDrive Link

    It is good that you have included expiry date for the shared link as premium feature. it will be more useful if the link get activated for a predefined specific period of the time. for example, first 10 days of every month.
