  2. Open Office files which are larger than 30MB without getting an error message.

    Open Office files which are larger than 30MB without getting an error message.
    Office files open by default in Office Online. If you try to open a file larger than 30MB or even worse if you share this file with others they will get an error message with an option to open the file with your locally installed office. Users mostly do not read this error message.

  3. Prevent re-sharing by non-owners from a tenant-level

    By default anyone who a file is shared with in OneDrive has the ability to re-share that file with additional users. This setting can be disabled on a site-per-site basis via Set-SPOSite with DisableSharingForNonOwners.
    It would be very useful to have this setting on a tenant-level (via admin center), as today using the above cmdlet means we need to re-run this for every new OneDrive site that is provisioned, and to make sure users don't reset this flag.

  4. Allow us to change the destination of deleted files with OneDrive sync client

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive 同期クライアントにて、ファイルを削除した場合の動作
    Allow us to change the destination of deleted files with OneDrive sync client


    ■Description(内容):
    ファイルを削除すると、同期しているすべての PC にある [ごみ箱] に入る。
    削除しても [ごみ箱] に入らないように設定できる機能を追加してほしい。

    We sync the items by OneDrive sync client, and deleted files go to “Trash” for all synced devices.

    For improving usability, we would like to have the feature or setting that user can control the destination of deleted items.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  5. Please provide us the feature to recognize users with same name on the sharing window for Modern UI

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    新しいユーザー インターフェイス画面で、共有設定時に同姓同名のユーザーを見分ける機能について
    Please provide us the feature to recognize users with same name on the sharing window for Modern UI.


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business や SharePoint Online にて共有設定を実施する際、同姓同名のユーザーが存在した場合、メールアドレスが異なっていても見分けることができない。
    従来のユーザー インターフェイスのように、同姓同名ユーザーが存在してもメールアドレスが表示されるなど、見分けることができる機能の追加を希望します。

    When we share something on OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online, if the tenant has users with same first and last name there is no way to recognize which one is the user you tend to share.

    On the Classic UI, e-mail address is also shown with each user name in the list and we recognize them clearly.

    For preventing users choosing the wrong sharing destination,…

  6. 'Allow download' option when sharing a folder

    It would be very useful to provide the 'allow download' selection toggle within link settings when sharing a folder with others to prevent them from downloading a local copy of any of the files within the folder - similar to how the 'allow editing' selection option works.

    I purchased onedrive for business specifically because I was led to believe I would be able to do this but was informed today that currently it is only available for office 365 (word, exel etc) individual shared documents.

    I was directed to a previous idea posted and wondered if there was any update…

  8. Allow admins to manage the permissions of files that users shared in Teams chats

    *English follows Japanese

    Teams のチャットで各ユーザーが共有したファイルの権限をテナント管理者で管理できるようにしたい
    Allow admins to manage the permissions of files that users shared in Teams chat ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    Teams のチャットで共有したファイルは、ユーザーの OneDrive for Business の "Microsoft Teams チャット ファイル" フォルダーに保存されるが、このフォルダーの権限を全ユーザー一括でテナント管理者が変更できるようにしてほしい。
    また、その後各ユーザーが権限を変更できないように設定できる機能を追加してほしい。

    Files shared via Teams chat are stored in the user's OneDrive for Business "Microsoft Teams Chat Files" folder, but I want the tenant admin to be able to change the permissions on this folder for all users at once.
    Also, please add a function that enables a setting to prevent users from changing the permissions after that.

  9. Display file extension in OneDrive app

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive アプリにてファイルの拡張子を表示できるようにして欲しい

    Display file extension in OneDrive app


    ■Description(内容):
    Web版では表示されていることから、同じサービスで見え方が異なるのは統一感がない
    そのため、OneDrive アプリでも拡張子を表示する、または表示非表示を切り替える機能が欲しい

    File extension can be displayed in OneDrive for Business on the web, however, it is not displayed in OneDrive for Business app. Since both OneDrive for Business on the web and app are the same service, they should be more unified.

    Therefore, it will be great if you could provide the feature that can display file extensions or switch display/hide them in OneDrive for Business app.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    OneDrive for Business の共有設定で [Outlook] をクリックした際に宛先に名前が表示されるようにしてほしい。
    Show names of recipients when you click on “Outlook” in the OneDrive for Business sharing settings


    ■Description(内容):

    名前が表示されるように動作を変更してほしい。

    Currently, when you click on “Outlook” in the OneDrive for Business sharing settings, you are redirected to the Outlook on the Web screen, but instead of usernames only the mail addresses of recipient users are shown, which is hard to understand.
    Please change this so that users’ names are shown.

  11. Add multiple Personal accounts on a computer / laptop / application

    Currently, on Office 365 Home, only 1 Personal account is allowed on OneDrive application, alongside Work / School accounts.

    It'd be great if we can create multiple Personal accounts (shared users on the same laptops/ pc, who are also sharing the 5 accesses to Microsoft Office) on the same device, as certain users (in my case for example) interchange between devices according to usage / occasion, and share those devices with family members.

    While it is true we can use the same Personal account and create multiple folders, we'd like to have segregation of personal space electronically.

    I’m using divided folders based on each shared external organization. To avoid human error that someone upload in the wrong organization folders, I would like to see the feature to define and select uploading folder automatically based on file name or the feature to show an error message to users when they upload files in wrong folder.

  17. 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…

  20. Restrict file replacement

    置換の禁止
    Restrict file replacement


    ■Description(内容):
    現在OneDrive for Businessを使用中。現時点の動作では置換を禁止することができません。
    現在の用途として会社のファイルをOneDrive for Businessを使用しての共有をしている。
    多数のユーザーがおり同一ファイルを誰が置き換えることが頻繁にあります。
    その際置き換える前のファイルを保存しているユーザー、置き換えた後の正しいファイルを保存しているユーザーの2通りがいるという状況になるため
    ファイルの置き換え自体を禁止できる機能を希望しています。
    現在は監査ログにて上記内容を管理していますが、上述の機能を拡張いただけると大きく作業効率の向上が見込めるため機能の拡張を希望致します。

    We would like to see the feature to restrict file replacement in OneDrive for Business.

    Multiple users are using our organization’s OneDrive for Business to share our files, and file replacement for one item by some uses is happened frequently, eventually multiple users have different version (latest and previous) for one file.

    We trace the latest file (and owner) with using audit log, but our work will be more productive if we are able to on/off file replacement feature.

    Thank you…
