  1. Incoherent wording and translation in the user interface on Mac and PC

    My Problem: I work on Macs and Win10 PCs. Firstly: The options on the user interfaces are not the same (first flaw). Secondly, they are wrongly translated: In german, there's an option: Speicherplatz freigeben. It did not state, that this will erase my 40 GB of data. What a mess. I expected it to behave like a "defragmentation" for unused file space, not a complete erasure. Please make sure, that the options are the same on these two platforms ant that OneDrive complies with mac-specific data-structures (aborts all copying if it encounters a non complying dataset). Make sure, it is…

  3. 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.

  4. Allow choosing not to use OneDrive for Business when subscribing licenses.

    ライセンス契約時に、クラウドサービスを利用をしないように簡易に設定できるような選択肢を設けてほしい。

    ■Description(内容):
    社内で Office Online を利用したいため、Office ProPlus を契約しているが、OneDrive for Business のクラウド領域は利用させたくないと考えている。
    OneDrive for Business の利用を制限するためだけに SharePoint Online 管理センターからの操作が必要だが、Office Online の利用を主目的としているユーザーに対して、通常利用することがないSharePoint Onlineにアクセスすることは手間がかかり、また不便である。
    当初より OneDrive for Business の利用を希望しないテナントが、運用上 OneDrive for Businessが含まれたプランを選択して契約する場合、初期段階で利用しないサービスを選択し設定できるような機能が欲しい。

    We purchased Office 365 Proplus to use Office Online apps in our organization, however, we don’t want our users to use OneDrive for Business in the cloud.
    We recognize that we can restrict use of OneDrive for the Business from SharePoint Online admin center but for users who are not familiar with SharePoint Online, it…

  6. OneDrive for Business: "Anyone can edit" does NOT, in fact, allow anyone to edit :(

    So when sharing from OneDrive, the default option clearly states "Anyone with the link can edit" and the official documentation (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/share-onedrive-files-and-folders-9fcc2f7d-de0c-4cec-93b0-a82024800c07) states that the intended behaviour of this grants anyone with edit permissions 'copy, move, edit, rename, sharing, deletion' rights.

    A recent change to OneDrive for security reasons has replaced edit permissions with very restrictive 'guest contributor' permissions.

    Can you please remove the wording "Anyone with this link can edit" because the links are guest-contributor links that CANNOT edit, and additionally feature a completely dead Sign-In button, so that even if someone has been specifically granted full edit…

  8. Granular retention in OneDrive.

    At the moment we have a single overall days of retention when someone leaves.

    We have had on a couple of occasions requirements to extend retention after someone left outside of our policy which is set to the standard 30 days. In this case the person had sensitive data in their Onedrive.

    We do not wish to keep everyone for longer just the ability to keep the data longer on an exception basis.

  9. Support Linked Excel Files

    Excel on OneDrive doesn't support linked workbooks, i.e. links between workbooks are broken each time OneDrive syncs. This is crazy as so many users have linked workbooks on there desktop machines.

    Microsoft had an enterprise solution that worked in 2005, so why can't you port that across to OneDrive.

  12. Share to Youtube account

    Why isn't YouTube an available partner to share video files with? YouTube has a rich API that can be integrated with.

  13. Have trouble renaming local versions of shared Onedrive data. Would be nice to be able to rename locally to organize.

    Have trouble renaming local versions of shared Onedrive data. Would be nice to be able to rename locally to organize. We "Add to my one drive" and sync all our local version to the office Onedrive cloud. Can't retitle the local versions without messing with the sync.

    Also, seems that Onedrive is not compatible with syncing some titles and it is hard to determine what is wrong with this title: IMG_4453.CR2

  15. photo

    Shared photos don't seem to be searchable.

    I have shared a small folder with a family member, she opened the link and can now view those files. All is well, to a point.
    I use Lightroom 6 and tagging for the photos. The tags are uploaded to Onedrive and I can see the tags online in the information of the files.
    On my own account on a separate computer, the files are syncronized to that onedrive folder, but the tags to not accompany the photos.

    Back to the shared folder - the other user can search their own folders and…

    highlighting that a file is already open by another user makes the user aware of editing an already open file

  17. Need to be able to organise One Drive shared files into own folders without losing shared editing access

    I desperately need to be able to organise shared files into my own folders without losing the shared access or editing ability. Currently, with no way of doing this, all I have is an ever expanding list of hundreds of shared files that make it impossible to locate anything. It seems ridiculous that this was not thought of in the design of One Drive. Google Drive does this - why can't One Drive? At least at the moment, my company hasn't taken away our Google Drive access. This is probably going to happen at the end of the year, and…

  18. Create OneDrive Temporary Photos "Link" Slideshow

    Apples IOS implementation is perfect.

    Select multiple photos including folders.
    Hit share which creates a temporary link.
    Provide link to third parties.
    Third parties will see a slideshow.

    Quick, easy, useful.. Currently OD does not have any elegant way to share multiple images on the fly.

    When signing in to OneDrive for Business from a browser on a mobile device of iPhone or Android excluding the iPad and performing data sharing operation, the link send window is automatically terminated. This behavior prevents users from sharing data and it needs to be fixed.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  20. Extend OneDrive storage >1TB for Office 365 Business Essentials en Premium

    For Business Essentials en Premium ie. Users with just 1 Account they are limit to 1TB Storage. With Dropbox you can go bigger.

    Can we add/get more storages pace for a descend price? Or combine multiple OneDrive plans to get more storage? For some groups 1TB is not enough.

    Think about photographers that runs a small business
