  1. Display in a table the email, date invite sent, access (r/w), and if user has accessed for ALL users... my list tops displays only 20

    I love love love OneDrive- great work. Sharing is easy. But MANAGING the shared documents/notebooks etc. is a total fiasco. There is no tabular method to review and manage ALL of the emails. My sharing list tops out at about 20 people. Neither of the two options below allow me to see the name or email, the DATE SENT, if the person has used the link and I don't see any place to see everybody in a single table. I am sharing with about 80 people total as View and 6 Edit.

  2. Sharing OneDrive for Business items from the Modern UI

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Business のモダン UI からの共有について

    Sharing OneDrive for Business items from the Modern UI
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    MC165027 の適応に伴い、モダン UI から共有の際に、権限の詳細設定の画面に遷移することができなくなり、アイテムに対して固有の権限の設定や削除が行えない。
    詳細設定の画面へ遷移を可能するか、同様の設定項目の追加を希望します。

    After MC165027 was applied, users became unable to grant or delete unique permissions to items when sharing items via the Modern UI because currently they cannot navigate to the advanced settings page for permissions.
    For improvement of usability and manageability, allow navigating to the advanced setting page or granting/deleting unique permissions without going anywhere.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  4. Ability to email and text people when sharing files

    Was thinking it be great to have the ability to not just email shared content with participants, but also to text them. I am using remind and constant contact. My open rate on texting people vs emailing people to respond on shared files is so much higher. I think people respond best to text than email.

  5. Let me open documents in the source application instead of online application.

    Documents that always open in the online application are frustrating, especially if it is a Word template that I simply want to use, not edit. Online does not allow me to just use it, it actually opens the template in editing mode. NOT GOOD.
    Allow me to decide how I want documents to open; online app or source app.

  6. Shared folder name synced to computer

    When I sync down the shared folders, a separate folder is created for each folder that is shared by the owner and with the name changed. We received multiple requests from our users that its confusing and would help to have a single folder created for the user who shared and all folders shared by that person will be in there.

  7. File Notification

    Said a few times here in different ways, but basically... the owner of the onedrive gets an email notification if a file is uploaded or downloaded.

    Therefore, I…

  15. Excel links to local drive when opening SharePoint synced file with OneDrive

    When linking an Excel file opening the synced one with OneDrive of a SharePoint online site library, the link is created to the file location in the local drive of the user instead of to the address in SharePoint.

    This makes the links don't work for other users opening that file.

    If you open the file to link directly from the SharePoint site library it is correctly created.

    For SharePoint sites synchronized with OneDrive the links should be created to SharePoint, otherwise this is a limitation for collaborating with SharePoint Online files between users using OneDrive Sync.

  18. 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.
