  1. Track number of file downloads

    It would be fantastic to include a way to see how many times a file has been downloaded. This should be a basic function for any file sharing service. People use OneDrive for business purposes and would obviously want to know if people are downloading certain files. Such a simple feature would be easy to add to the details of the file.

    This suggestion has been made for both OneDrive and Google Drive, and the only responses they have ever received is "This is an interesting feature and we'll consider adding it." I don't understand how something so basic could…

  4. Support and Recovery Assistant - Add OneDrive B2B Sync External Sharing Troubleshooting Diagnostic

    The OneDrive B2B Sync feature has several settings that need to be configured on both tenants in order for the OneDrive client to establish a successful sync between the two organizations.

    Example of a list of settings that are needed are posted below.

    It would help if a support diagnostic was added to the current Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant (Sara) tool under the OneDrive diagnostics so we can quickly check the settings on both tenants to verify both are configured correctly to establish a successful B2B OneDrive Sync.

  5. Enable opening an Excel file edited with Excel Client in iOS Excel app without an error

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Excel クライアント と iOS アプリでの共同編集時のエラーについて

    Enable opening an Excel file edited with Excel Client in iOS Excel app without an error


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business から共有した Excelファイルを共同編集をする際に、Excel クライアントで編集したデータを、iOS 版の Excel アプリで開くと "アップロードできません-変更を他のユーザーの変更と結合することはできません" というエラーが表示されることがある。
    Excel クライアントで編集したデータを、iOS 版の Excel アプリで開いてもエラーが表示されないように対応してほしい。

    When attempting to co-edit an Excel file shared via OneDrive for Business, if users open the file with iOS Excel app, the error “Cannot upload-changes cannot be combined with other users ' changes” occurs.

    For smoother co-edit operation, we hope you to fix this error when opening a file edited with Excel Client in iOS Excel app.

    Thank…

  6. Create list of all files on OneDrive

    I have an account with a complex but logical folder structure and thousands of files shared for various purposes, but i cannot find a way to get a list of these files. Ideally i need a list of the files and the direct path to each one.
    I am basically looking for ways to manage the files more efficiently and be able to send filtered lists of the files to colleagues I am sharing with.

  8. Enable One drive to sync to private cloud/NAS/File Share

    Some techies out there create their own home environments for training and prepping for exams, or just for shiggles and gits. It would be nice to extend the One Drive feature to sync to multiple places without having to allways go to the MS Cloud. Example, I have a file share that I want to keep a bunch of files synced with but want them on the local computer to travel with. Could we not setup a host on the FS and have the OneDrive client be on our laptops. Then whenever we connect to home net or VPN back…

    Outlook クライアントにて OneDrive for Business 上のアイテムを添付した際のアクセス許可の既定の設定について

    Default access permissions settings on outlook client when items on OneDrive for Business is attached


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive 管理センターのリンクの設定にて、既定を [表示] に設定をしていても、Outlook クライアントから OneDrive for Business 上のアイテムを添付する際に反映されない。既定で [受信者が表示可能] となるように改善を希望します。

    Settings are not reflected when items on OneDrive for Business are attached on Outlook client even if the default setting for link is “View” on OneDrive for Business admin center.

    For improvement of security and manageability, we hope to be able to set “recipient can view” settings by default.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  12. Family access to the same onedrive allowing spouse and children to access and use without sharing a login.

    Allow all users in a family to access the same 1TB subscription without giving them my personal login/password; all files would belong to the community/family.

  14. Duplicate folders/Images

    If One Drive selected the duplicates and deleted them automatically. Rather than having to individually select the duplicates to delete. It's very painstaking. If one drive can identify duplicates why can't they highlight them for deletion.

  15. Get Notification when a shared Office Document is modified

    With Office and OneDrive integrated, especially on mobile devices, it would be excellent to get an notification every time a shared Office Document had been modified or is been modified at that moment. It would make collaboration a more streamlined affair.

  20. Just share the current file / folder version

    Shared files are always visible to the receiver in the most recent version. There should be an option that the recipient can not see the subsequent file updates.
