  1. OneDrive Share Feature

    For each single option of Share for a file or folder, adding:
    - Expiry date (actually on Anyone only)
    - Allow Editing (actually on Anyone/People in org/Specific People)
    - One Time Password (actually on Specific People only)
    - Allow link forward (non-existent on any options)

    Those above would give more control on the share facility
    Thanks

    • Sobre edición de documentos compartidos

      Sería bueno que cuando se comparte un documento y las otras personas pueden editar, se refleje si alguien los está editando y cuando lo hizo.
      Para así evitar las versiones en conflicto.

            • change the wording when sharing.

              You normally have 3 options: People in Contoso, people with existing access or specific people. Our users are selecting 'people in contoso', then emailing the link to an individual. The problem is that the file is then available to everyone on site. If I'm not mistaken if anyone on site searches for the document it will appear. Also in recently shared with me locations it will appear. The problem is we are a school and we are worried about students gaining access to the files. I therefore suggest that you change it to 'everyone in contoso' or 'all people in…

                    When sharing items on OneDrive for Business with external users, they can see the sharing information (of other users who are shared the items) which we don’t want them to.

                    In order to manage items properly, I hope the feature to be implemented to hide the sharing information of items.

                    • OneDrive with Shutterfly and digital photo frames

                      It would be really awesome if OneDrive could be integrated with shutterfly it would also be really great if there is an integration with OneDrive and digital photo frames so you could log into your account and display folders as slide shows.

                      • it would be amazing if it proactively searched for duplicate files: by name/date/size/type & facial recognition & told location of ea. file

                        its almost impossible to go back and clean up old photo albums when multiple kids have shared folders and photo streams and cloud albums, and then thumb drives, archive and mass external storage drives. it would be amazing if one drive (regardless of whether you are on the app or website), proactively searched for file duplicates, using a minimum of 5 different search criteria (size, type, date, name, facial recognition...) and temporarily segregated them, for review & acknowledgement of various locations where the document resides. Option to erase duplicates, compress image, leave as is, move, and so on would be…

                        • Sync an entire site collection

                          On local SharePoint, I was able to use Windows Explorer to sync files very easily by drag and drop. We have just switched to SharePoint Online and there is no way to do this without syncing and mapping every single drive, and I have HUNDREDS. Why would you take away that functionality?

                              There should be a small warning (same as in Windows) when editing a shared folder title, that there are no special characters allowed. We used a hashtag in a title and the folder couldn't be synced, both us and Microsoft support team spent days figuring out the problem.

                              • A OneDrive folder you can not share files from

                                We would like to shed my on premise file storage and have all our users use OneDrive for Business. We would like to have a folder created in everyone's OneDrive that they can not accidentally share files from consider it a "safe' folder. The user would have to deliberately move the document out of the "Safe" folder to another area or folder before they could share it .

                                This "Safe" folder would be added protection to prevent theaccidental/unintentional sharing trade secrets, personal information, etc...

                                • Newest-first shared album display

                                  I've shared an album using a published link, but been advised that it's not possible to change the photo display order from oldest-first. This means that repeat visitors will need to scroll to the end every time to check for newly-posted items. Can the 'newest first' sort order be applied to an album?

                                    • Auto collect photos from shared album

                                      I have O365 and use OneDrive to store and share photos with friends also have O365. It is very painful to download the photos from my friend's OneDrive and upload them to my own OneDrive. Can we have a auto collect photo feature. Instead of downloading, one can auto collect photos or album from friend's shared albums. Thx!

                                      • Guys, for next level in the China add a "simple-to-do" & "mobile&laptop-friendly" WECHAT app sharing option for files.

                                        People spend an average of 2-3h a day on wechat in China.
                                        It is one of the mostly used channels to share documents that aim for 1:1 or groups of people.
                                        It is fast.
                                        It is easily re-accessible.
                                        It can work on multiple devices.

                                        • For me to use the 100% onedrive - share equal dropbox folder

                                          For me to use the 100% onedrive - share equal dropbox folder

                                          It would be great if he shared a folder and made the folder locally equal to the dropbox, where several people can save and show the files to all that are allowed.

                                          In the dropbox when we share a folder, it appears to the person, everyone can save that folder locally on your PC.
