  1. Request that someone sends a file to me

    I (and my users) often need to request large files from a contact outside my organization, but Office 365 and OneDrive do not provide this functionality in a simple way. Microsoft support tells me to “either create a shared Sharepoint site or ask the other party to upload files to their own OneDrive and share the file”. Both of these “solutions” require the other party to have a Microsoft ID and force me into the awkward position of being a Microsoft evangelist (as I tell them how to get a Microsoft ID, upload the file, and then share it with…

    • More secure file sharing for OneDrive Personal

      Today a shared folder or document ist just protected by the link to it. If someone captures the email containing the link, then he has access to all the shared files.
      To share more confidential files I would like to share with a specific microsoft account. Then the files are at least as secure as the microsoft account of the person i shared the files with.

      Marketing consideration:
      Why to pay for office 365 home for 5 family members when I can't share the 1 TB of OneDrive space securely with them?

      • Expiration date on files and folders

        Sometimes you want to share some files or photos temporary with someone so that he/she can download. If you can select in the menu a date until when the folder is accessible the process is automated. I do not need to go back to the folder and remove the access rights manually. Also it makes sure that I do not forget to remove the access rights.

          We hear the feedback loud and clear and are figuring out how to do this.

          As a first step, we will be adding the ability for administrators to expire external users’ access to entire site collections after a mandatory expiration period, as we discussed at Ignite 2018. That feature will be rolling out in CY19Q1.

        • Allow users to subscribe to notifications on a shared folder

          OneDrive should allow users to subscribe to a shared folder and receive notifications when new content is added to that shared folder.

          This way you can share a folder once and keep adding content to it.

            Def important feature for our service. This one is behind making shared folders sync, but on the roadmap for sure.
