  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. Give users ability to set DEFAULT SHARE = VIEW ONLY!!!

    Quite annoying that such a basic setting isn't available to regular users (only site admins)

    because of this the RIGHTCLICK>Share oneDrive Link in Windows Explorer is absolutely useless to a lot of people because it defaults to an EDITABLE SHARE!!!

    I don't understand why this feature has to be queued up and awaiting votes, this is so basic!!!

  4. 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,…

  5. Add secure and convenient methods for sharing folders

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    フォルダーを共有する場合の共有方法について、利便性とセキュリティを両立できる共有機能を拡充してほしい
    Add secure and convenient methods for sharing folders


    ■Description(内容):
    「特定のユーザ」を指定してフォルダ共有した場合、共有されたユーザーは、ブラウザー上で共有フォルダを開くたびにメール アドレスへ送信される確認コードの入力を求められる挙動となっている。
    この方法だと、利用頻度の多いユーザにとって利便性が低下する。

    「リンクを知っているすべてのユーザー」を指定すると、指定したユーザー以外もアクセス可能となるためセキュリティが低下する。
    利便性とセキュリティのバランスが取れている共有機能を実装してほしい。

    If you share a folder with the “Specific people” setting, the users you share it with need to enter a confirmation code sent to their mail address when they access the shared folder.
    This method is inconvenient when sharing with users who use the folder often.
    If you use the “Everyone with the link” setting, users other than those specified can access it, which reduces security.
    Please add a setting that balances security and convenience.

  6. File Request expiration policy serperate from Anyone links

    Currently the File Request expiration is the same as that set for Anyone links. But often you want to set the Anyone links expiration to a few weeks and we would like the File Request expiration to be indefinite. Otherwise if you use the File Request feature you have to keep sharing a link if you want this for a long term process.

  7. 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.

  8. Show names of recipients when you click on “Outlook” in the OneDrive for Business sharing settings

    ■Title(件名):
    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):
    現在の動作として、OneDrive for Business の共有設定時に [Outlook] をクリックすると、Outlook on the Web 画面に遷移するが、そこに表示される宛先がユーザーの名前ではなく、メール アドレスの表示になりわかりにくい。
    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.

  9. I want to restrict editing on inter-user internal sharing

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    内部ユーザー同士の共有にて、編集の許可を制限したい
    I want to restrict editing on inter-user internal sharing


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business において、テナント内のユーザー間での共有設定に既定で編集を制限する方法がありません。
    共有元ユーザーにて [編集を許可する] のチェックを都度外す必要があるため、既定で編集権限を制限する設定機能を要望します。

    There is no way to restrict editing by default for sharing between users in a tenant on OneDrive for Business.
    Since this requires sharing users to uncheck the “Allow editing” box each time, please add a way to restrict the editing option by default.

    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.

  15. Hide documents from Delve, that are shared with "link sharing"

    If user shares document with link inside organization, this sharing option creates illusion that only users who know exact link, can access document.
    Everyone in organization can see document if they open user page in Delve.
    All documents that user shared with link are publicly available to all workers inside company in Delve.

  20. Restrict file replacement

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    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…
