  1. Live file synch only setting

    For sharepoint linked libraries, there should be a setting that allows access to file in online only mode, meaning files are not stored locally .. if there connection to the internet then live synch is active otherwise files aren't available for synching. Files access works the same way windows explorer opens files, and warns users that file is in use, and allow collaboration. Avoids multiple copies of the same file being stored locally by multiple users and creating very annoying upload issues and synching problems.

  2. A OneDrive folder you can not share files from

    We would like to shed my on premise file storage and have all our users use OneDrive for Business. We would like to have a folder created in everyone's OneDrive that they can not accidentally share files from consider it a "safe' folder. The user would have to deliberately move the document out of the "Safe" folder to another area or folder before they could share it .

    This "Safe" folder would be added protection to prevent theaccidental/unintentional sharing trade secrets, personal information, etc...

  5. Smoother app transitions

    You know how, when you try to hide the toolbar, it blinks away, it doesn’t “scroll up” and hide. This is for everything. Even editing a pdf, and moving from all the different editing tools, everything blinks. There’s a lot of app refreshments that could be used, A LOT. Maybe add cute little transitions, like a swirl or just so it doesn’t look so BORING.

  6. schedule for specific files monthly for example

    There Are Files I don´t sync every moment, maybe I need sync a large file weekly. The Internet connection or time is spent if it is synchronized for each modification, but it may be necessary to do it on a regular basis, weekly or monthly, for example.

  7. Are there plans to develop a OneDrive add-in for Outlook?

    I wanted to share OneDrive files/folders within an existing Outlook email thread if possible. As of now I currently have to recreate contact lists from my web or desktop account when I choose to share certain files or folders from that account.

  8. Newest-first shared album display

    I've shared an album using a published link, but been advised that it's not possible to change the photo display order from oldest-first. This means that repeat visitors will need to scroll to the end every time to check for newly-posted items. Can the 'newest first' sort order be applied to an album?

  10. Auto collect photos from shared album

    I have O365 and use OneDrive to store and share photos with friends also have O365. It is very painful to download the photos from my friend's OneDrive and upload them to my own OneDrive. Can we have a auto collect photo feature. Instead of downloading, one can auto collect photos or album from friend's shared albums. Thx!

  12. OneDrive should generate a share-link while a file is still syncing.

    We work with media files which can be larger than most common files.

    A user has to wait for the file to sync before a share-link can be built. This totally breaks the stream of thought for a workflow.

    Dropbox always allowed the link generation immediately.

  13. Poder utilizar Archivos de Excel con contraseña, que se puedan compartir con otros colaboradores, pero protegidos con contraseña

    Poder tener un archivo de excel protegido con contraseña, pero que pueda ser utilizable en forma compartida con otros colaboradores.
    Siempre, solicitando la contraseña al iniciarse.

  14. Guys, for next level in the China add a "simple-to-do" & "mobile&laptop-friendly" WECHAT app sharing option for files.

    People spend an average of 2-3h a day on wechat in China.
    It is one of the mostly used channels to share documents that aim for 1:1 or groups of people.
    It is fast.
    It is easily re-accessible.
    It can work on multiple devices.

  15. For me to use the 100% onedrive - share equal dropbox folder

    For me to use the 100% onedrive - share equal dropbox folder

    It would be great if he shared a folder and made the folder locally equal to the dropbox, where several people can save and show the files to all that are allowed.

    In the dropbox when we share a folder, it appears to the person, everyone can save that folder locally on your PC.

  16. Please don’t tag my stuff!!

    area so why were my created folders not there? In settings I selected When MS gives an option to not tag “MY” PHOTO'S and DOCUMENTS, I would think that is exactly what MS would do!! Please, DON’T tag MY STUFF!! I specifically used the MS feature to create my own folders. When I tried to move an item by selectingThey were dated, separated, and not the way I created them. I never left that file. ‘move to” all my folders were not there. In settings I selected NO!!

  18. If you have multiple shared OneDrives, allow more than one to sync to your mac

    I support several small organisations with free subscriptions, and we sync files locally. However you can only sync one OneDrive onto the mac using the free account, or a personal account. That means mingling lies from different organisations into one folder to enable synching potentially - and I just don't like mixing different content - due diligence and all that.

  19. Behavior when sharing OneDrive for Business from the browser app

    *English follows Japanese

    ブラウザーアプリから OneDrive for Business の共有を実施した場合の動作について
    Behavior when sharing OneDrive for Business from the browser app


    ■Description(内容):
    iPhone のブラウザーアプリから OneDrive for Business にアクセスをし、ファイルの横の三点リーダーから共有を実施すると、共有の画面が画面の端に表示されるため、一部の詳細設定が画面外に表示されタップができない。
    画面上部の共有をタップした場合は、画面中央に共有の画面が表示され、詳細設定がすべて画面に収まるため、三点リーダーから共有をした場合も同じ動作となるよう改善を希望します。

    When accessing OneDrive for Business from the iPhone browser app and sharing from the three-point reader next to File, the sharing screen is displayed at the edge of the screen with some advanced settings go out of the screen, making it impossible to tap.
    If you tap Share at the top of the screen, the shared screen will be displayed in the center of the screen, and all the detailed settings will fit on…

  20. Pasting links

    I recently transitioned from Office personal to Office 365 business and migrated OneDrive over to business as well.

    However, when I post links in places such as Facebook and LINE app, the file name is no longer included which is really frustrating. Is there any plan to include this functionality in the business version of OneDrive?

    I've attached what happens when posting the same file in both OneDrive personal and business - as you can see, they are very different with the business version losing identifying information. :(
