  1. Allow saving Office files on another user’s OneDrive for Business

    ■Title(件名):
    他のユーザーの OneDrive for Business に Office ファイルを名前を付けて保存する機能について

    Allow saving Office files on another user’s OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):
    Office アプリで編集したファイルを名前を付けて保存する際に、自分以外のユーザーの OneDrive for Business を指定することができない。
    他のユーザーから共有されている OneDrive for Business 上の Office ファイルを、名前を変更して保存する際にも保存先として選択できないため、共有ユーザーの OneDrive for Business 上にファイルを保存できるようにしてほしい。

    When I name and save the files edited by Office apps, it is not possible to specify other users’ OneDrive for Business as the saving destination.
    I feel the inconvenience because I cannot specify the other user’s OneDrive for Business as the saving destination when I want to rename and save the files which shared by other users.

    Therefore, I hope…

  4. Add templates to One Drive and let users interact with other people based on those templates

  7. Allow Multiple Passwords for an Anonymous Access Link

    Please make it possible to add multiple passwords to an anonymous access link for a file. I need to share the sample file with hundreds of users, but these users should only be able to access with passwords unique to them so I can deactivate a specific link and password when needed.

    This is a major need for my scenario where I will potentially have a large number of unknown users using the same link. The lack of this feature will require that your customers duplicate files repeatedly in OneDrive/OneDrive for Business accounts, which makes sharing frustrating.

  9. Add activity log for shared folders

    We should be able to see a log of who has deleted/modified files in shared folders.
    It was previously marked completed but it isn't available. https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive-archive/suggestions/6761490-onedrive-activity-log

  10. Allow OneDrive to be a Shared Drive Replacement

    My idea is simple, why create the division between OneDrive and SharePoint? e.g. OneDrive for personal files, SharePoint for sharing?

    It creates confusion for users and begs the question why?

    Why not allow organizations to be flexible with their options, what if you want to have things in a centralized cloud-enabled shared drive for the entire organization, with some basic permissions?

  11. New option: keep local file

    During a reconnection, if OneDrive can not synchonize a file, it renames the local file by adding the name of the PC and adds the cloud file. Add an option to do the opposite: keep the local file and add the cloud version by adding "-OneDrive"

  13. Allow Editing in Synced Read-Only Folder

    In my company, we have a Sharepoint Online document library that is synced to multiple Windows 10 laptops using the OneDrive for Business client. One user has the ability to make changes, while the other users are given "can view" only, as they should not be making changes to the library. Inside one folder of this library is a small program that users can run. This program generates temporary files (inside the same folder from which it is running), and if it cannot create/edit those files, it will not run. With the library being "can view", the OneDrive client prevents…

  17. Allow view-only users to see changes in real time?

    A little background:

    We have shared out an Excel file. It is a simple log of parts that are received. This is filled out daily and shared with the Service Department.

    We shared the file to five people. Three people have editing capabilities, though that is just in case the main person(s) is not here. Only one person modifies the file on a regular basis. I used the "Anyone with the link" option. The other two people were set up with "Allow editing" unselected. In both cases, the "Send" option was used.

    What we are running into is that the…

  18. Incoherent wording and translation in the user interface on Mac and PC

    My Problem: I work on Macs and Win10 PCs. Firstly: The options on the user interfaces are not the same (first flaw). Secondly, they are wrongly translated: In german, there's an option: Speicherplatz freigeben. It did not state, that this will erase my 40 GB of data. What a mess. I expected it to behave like a "defragmentation" for unused file space, not a complete erasure. Please make sure, that the options are the same on these two platforms ant that OneDrive complies with mac-specific data-structures (aborts all copying if it encounters a non complying dataset). Make sure, it is…

  20. Sometimes I send one file but the person has access to the whole folder and maybe more! I suggest a way to shut down that text.

    See the above. I sent a single file and the person had access to the entire folder! Give me a choice of only one file or more when sending using my texting on my Android phone.
