    • Increase file size limit to allow easier migration from third parties like Box

      We see many customers struggling to migrate from 3rd party services such as Box to OneDrive due to limitations in file size limits in OneDrive.

      • Co-Authoring Cross Tenant

        Since Co-Authoring is only available within organization, perhaps it would help if it could be enabled cross tenant, and I believe this would come together with the feature to allow syncing shared files cross tenant. However, I do understand that there is a security risk on this, but I have strong trust with you guys that you can do something about it.

            When uploading from Xbox captures, the Xbox says it was uploaded but it doesn't show up in my drive.

              • Include 'Shared With Me' folder in Office Apps 'Open' file menu.

                When using the 'Open' feature of the file menu in all Office apps it would be very useful to be able to see the 'Shared With Me' folder as well as my personal OneDrive for Business 'Files' folder.

                • Don't separate "files" and "shared"

                  When sharing files with my team, I have to remember if I created the file or if someone else did in order to know where to find it. All files should just be in the same place and clearly labeled by who was the originator with ability to sort/filter by that field.

                    • I'm sure this has been suggested many times, but i'll just add my voice to the chorus

                      I'm sure this has been suggested many times, but i'll just add my voice to the chorus anyway. We'd like to see a "no share" option with OneDrive. Keep all the existing sharing features, but add a simple storage-only option. Most people don't need to share (at least at our company), but do need the cloud storage (it makes replacing PC's A LOT easier). Any chance we'll see this in the near future? Thanks.

                      • Allow files to be uploaded from other websites directly with the link

                        I would like to upload some files from other Cloud storages to one drive directly. Not by downloading to my pc and then again uploading.
                        Instead allow files to be uploaded to my drive through a link from other cloud storages

                        • create a web page from an album in order to share pictures.

                          My family just had a reunion, and of course we are sharing photos. My brother uses Icloud to share his. He does this by clicking an option to share as a web page. This is very convenient to share with people who don't have a MSFT ID.

                          • outlook

                            I have several customers who have asked to be able to set an expiration date on a cloud attachment when sending through Outlook. Currently, a sharing expiration date can only be set from OneDrive on the web or OneDrive on Windows.

                                When sharing files with specific users, allow those users to share the file with others (similar to sharing option for PowerBI Dashboards).

                                  • Allow sharing of OneDrive for Business between organizations.

                                    I have a url for a publicly shared OneDrive and need to download the files on a regular schedule. The Folders on the other OneDrive for Business are all in folders that contain zip files and there is no login so I can't join or share it with my OneDrive for Business.

                                        When using Office 2016, if a user clicked [File]-[Share]-[Sign-in], the message “Loading OneDrive accounts” keep displaying on the screen even though the user does not use his/her OneDrive for Business. This behavior might confuse the users and give them anxiety about information leakage.
