  1. 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."

  3. Shared File/Folder changes notifications.

    Dunno if this one has been posted yet, I see some stuff that's similar, but not really exactly the feature I'm looking for.

    In particular, my mom has shared with me details about a planned trip out of the country via one-drive, and I'd like to get a notification if she makes any changes to her plans, so I can keep tabs on what she's up to over there.

    And now that I'm thinking about it more, and reading the post below this comment box, it sounds very similar to that... >_<
    XD

    I'd like a digest of changes, and…

  6. Change Options for "Sharing Outside your organization"

    Currently the options for sharing files externally ("outside your organization") for ODfB and SPO provide options to
    1) Let only users in selected security groups share with authenticated external users", and
    2)Let only users in selected security groups share with authenticated external users AND using anonymous links".

    This security option is basically worthless for our organization because although the security team wants to control who is sharing with "Anyone" using a security group, this setting also restricts users from sharing with authenticated external users. The real security risk is sharing anonymously, not with authenticated users. We want to be able…

  7. 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.

  8. Transfer shared folder ownership

    Hi, Microsoft team.

    I have been looking around on how to transfer shared folder ownership from one user to another user. Reason I raised this up because of in situation if one employee left the company then she or he need to surrendered the ownership to the successor.

  11. Have OneDrive play nicer with Rocketbook

    Something happened the week of April 30th. A OneDrive upgrade or something. Rocketbook now keeps failing to send files to OneDrive.

    It is really hard to figure out if it is a security setting or whatever. Very frustrating. It should be easier for users to fix these things.

  16. Only one copy open at a time.

    For my job, we have to constantly ask our fellow employees if anyone has a document open before we open it ourselves. We would find it extremely useful if it were possible to have documents we share with each other only accessible to one user at a time.

  17. 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.

  20. Open Office files which are larger than 30MB without getting an error message.

    Open Office files which are larger than 30MB without getting an error message.
    Office files open by default in Office Online. If you try to open a file larger than 30MB or even worse if you share this file with others they will get an error message with an option to open the file with your locally installed office. Users mostly do not read this error message.
