  1. Add albums shared with me to my album list

    When someone shares an album with me, it only appears in the "Shared with me" area of OneDrive, among other things this person shared, like folders and files.

    I think those shared albums should stay among my own albums, in the Photos area of OneDrive.

  2. Implement a feature to restrict sharing among tenant users.

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    組織内のユーザーの共有を制御する機能の追加を要望いたします

    Implement a feature to restrict sharing among tenant users.


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business の共有について、現在組織内のユーザーは制御できないが、ユーザーが共有時に所属している部署、あるいはチーム、または特定のユーザーのみ選択可能にする機能の追加を要望いたします。

    Currently in OneDrive for Business sharing feature, we cannot restrict users within our organization from sharing items.

    For security reasons, when sharing items among internal users, implement the feature that allows users who attempt to share an item with others to share the item with only the department/team (or specific users) they belong to at that moment.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  4. Stop further sharing of file/document/folder

    As per my understanding when I share the file/document/folder with one user, that specific user can also further share the same file/document/folder with other users. It would be better if we can have this kind of functionality that when shared with any user, there would be an option that would allow user to restrict any further sharing with other users.

  5. Allow External Users to Upload File within Forms

    After trying to talk to the MS Forms Team since the start of COVID-19, many users have been requesting the ability to allow external users to upload files within an MS Forms context. From my understanding that this is a technical issue with how access works within OneDrive/SharePoint that limits the ability to allow external users to upload files. This request has been in the works since April of 2017. An update in December of 2019 released the ability for internal users only. There has been no update since phase one of the feature.

    I would like to ask the…

    When I use OneDrive for Business sync client, I am unable to change a sync folder due to its default name of "OneDrive - Company".

  9. Additional information (apart from name) on sharing

    We have a Problem on sharing documents with others.While entering a name in sharing page, some suggestions comes up.

    The problem is, that some people are named the same. For example some people are called Thomas Müller. On sharing all of them are mentioned and it isn't possible to see, which entry it the right one.

    It would be nice, if a user can see department or something else from Active Directory on sharing suggestion.

  10. Office 365 Home: Request File Feature for OneDrive

    This feature is inaccessible for 365 Home users. It is only available for 365 Business users for reasons never explained. Please make it available for both.

    The existence of this feature and its nonexistence within the OneDrive for a Home subscription is not stated during the purchase of the plan and is missing from the plan details. Whatsmore, Home users pay more for additional utilities (sway, skype, etc) with their 365 than the base business plan or business plan 1), but are still not afforded this feature. That leaves you with the option of paying more for what you don't…

    ・現在、クラウドへのアップロードの上限が 最大 15 GBとなっているが、動画データの特性上、圧縮を行っても 15 GB 未満へ容量を低減させることが難しい。
    ・1 カットで撮影された動画などの場合、分割し、小分けにしてアップロードすることが現実的ではない。
    ・他の編集ファイルや関連ファイルとのリンクやデータの整合性を保つため、アップロードのために動画データに手を加えることは好ましくない。

  12. Direct download links

    As a publishing company using Onedrive, we often send zip files to our clients via Wetransfer because it offers direct download links.

    Ideally we'd like to send our own personalised, branded emails containing direct download links generated from Onedrive.

    We could send out emails with a link to access Onedrive that doesn't require login but find that users are put off by the often unfamiliar screen presented to them via Onedrive to download their files.

  14. change the order of albums

    I like the various sort order options within OneDrive folders (name, date modified, date created, size, custom). At the time of their introduction (Jan 2015), OneDrive albums do not seem to have these options. Please add them.

    The ability to create custom sort orders is particularly important for photo albums (even more than for folders). Frankly, I just use a different platform for sharing photo albums today due to the gaps like this - it's close, but not close enough :(

  18. Request files requirement for "Anyone Links" folder edit rights

    Request files not shaping up as previewed

    For security reasons our company has limited "anyone" links to view for files and folders. Unfortunately to use Request Files requires "anyone" links have edit rights on folders. Why can't the feature work with "specific people"? Why does this feature require changing a global security setting to use?

    Your preview materials state that uploaders would not see anything but would just see the area where they can upload. But making a security change that would impact more than just this type of link (request files) is not what we had hoped to see.

    Behavior when sharing with personal OneDrive

    You can access files that have been shared with the account in use using “Shared”.
    However, files created and shared on a business account do not show in the “Shared” area of the personal account.
    In order to improve the usability of these products, please make it so that files show up in “Shared” for both business -> personal and personal -> business sharing cases.

  20. Sharing status in onedrive for business

    Weather we share files with internal or external users, sharing status shows only "Shared". It would be helpful, If it shows sharing type with text or any other visual indicator.

    The same status visual indicator in "shared by me" page and in windows explorer icon would help reviewing all my external access.
