  1. Access Sharepoint shared folder in 'Shared with Me' in App

    If I share a folder within a SharePoint library to a user (who has other access to the libary), I cannot see this folder in the "Shared with Me" when using either the Outlook for iOS or Android App. The folder DOES appear when using a browser so the permissions and access work.

    Furthermore, if I open the email invitation to the shared folder on a phone/tablet and click on the link, the device will open OneDrive and into the shared folder. However, if I return to OneDrive at a later date, there is no way to get back to…

    • File system for chrome os

      It would be nice to have an extension for the file manager in Chrome Os that fully supports Onedrive. There is actually one (I guess an independent third party) https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/file-system-for-onedrive/jbfdfcehgafdbfpniaimfbfomafoadgo but it doesn't work properly on my Chromebook.

        • Recent Files

          Have a 'folder' for recent files. Have a time limit in days. To add to this have a 'folder' for each collaborator. We can see work evolution and be able to see what collaborators are working on and the status of the work.

          If you really want to make this powerful allow for a comment on the work. "Jim, this is the latest version for our client approval. Please submit if you approve".

          In summary this is a simple dashboard of current work.

          • Time bound sharing links on all sharing options not just Anonymous

            With anonymous links IT can set a time limit on when a link expires.

            It would be great to be able to set that via an IT admin policy for a maximum and for users to be able to set an expiry on all types of links.

            For internally shared links I would like to see a notification when the link is about to expire with a reminder to move documents to SharePoint if they need to be retained and shared.

            Also to allow them to extend the share for x amount of days.

            This highlights people keeping everything Onedrive

                • Create share link from desktop

                  When you click on "Share" in Windows, the system opens a browser window to create a share link. That's mad. Why can't it be done natively in Windows?

                  • Granular retention in OneDrive.

                    At the moment we have a single overall days of retention when someone leaves.

                    We have had on a couple of occasions requirements to extend retention after someone left outside of our policy which is set to the standard 30 days. In this case the person had sensitive data in their Onedrive.

                    We do not wish to keep everyone for longer just the ability to keep the data longer on an exception basis.

                    • Sharing with External Users

                      Sharing with External Users
                      Share a file with 2 external people in OneDrive, a person with a guest account (A) and a person without a guest account (B)
                      Message saying both user A and B are outside of your organization (good)
                      Click copy link - shows error message: "You cannot create a secure link containing both people inside and outside of your organization." => hard to understand for a user
                      Ideally, the OneDrive link should work, with a guest account for A and a guest account proposal for B.

                          • Have trouble renaming local versions of shared Onedrive data. Would be nice to be able to rename locally to organize.

                            Have trouble renaming local versions of shared Onedrive data. Would be nice to be able to rename locally to organize. We "Add to my one drive" and sync all our local version to the office Onedrive cloud. Can't retitle the local versions without messing with the sync.

                            Also, seems that Onedrive is not compatible with syncing some titles and it is hard to determine what is wrong with this title: IMG_4453.CR2

                              Shared photos don't seem to be searchable.

                              I have shared a small folder with a family member, she opened the link and can now view those files. All is well, to a point.
                              I use Lightroom 6 and tagging for the photos. The tags are uploaded to Onedrive and I can see the tags online in the information of the files.
                              On my own account on a separate computer, the files are syncronized to that onedrive folder, but the tags to not accompany the photos.

                              Back to the shared folder - the other user can search their own folders and…

                                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…

                                  iPad を除く、iPhone や Android のモバイルデバイスにて、ブラウザーから OneDrive for Business へサインインを行い、データの共有操作をすると、リンクの送信ウィンドウが自動的に終了し、データを共有することができない現象が発生するため、改善してほしい。

                                  When signing in to OneDrive for Business from a browser on a mobile device of iPhone or Android excluding the iPad and performing data sharing operation, the link send window is automatically terminated. This behavior prevents users from sharing data and it needs to be fixed.

                                  Thank you for your consideration.

                                    So we know that perhaps something is missing in a sync.

                                    • Unshare In OneDrive

                                      It would be great to allow selected unshare for users, not just for all users.

                                      • Autoreply or Sunset Announcement on OneDrive

                                        When an employee leaves a company, oftentimes the employee, manager, or IT department will add an "autoreply" on the person's email box. This will notify anyone sending messages to that mailbox of the situation. With OneDrive, it would be nice to have some similar functionality such as a banner across the top of the page that could be implemented easily by employee, manager or IT staff. Example: "Sorry, so-and-so is no longer with the company, please contact XYZ, and be aware that this OneDrive will be deleted in X days."
