  1. Prevent the creation of a manually created folder in the root of the Tenant Client Synce Team sites

    From the explorer view, and the root hierarchy of Team Site Sync'd data under the Tenant name. End-user are able to manually create a new folder and sub structure. This data does not get sync'd.

    This results in data being resident to the device only, and not sync'd back.

    If the same action is done from within a Team Site structure, the data is sync'd.

    Need to understand how to limit/prevent users from creating this non-sync'd folder structure.

  4. 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…

  7. Have a Read only pop up for PDF Forms already in use

    I currently share our many PDF forms and multiple people edit them on mobile devices. If two people have one file open, there’s no warning that data could be compromised. Whoever closes out the file last will have their edits saved. I would love to see a Read only notification when trying to access the form so that there’s no confusion. Much like how Excel will give you that same type of warning so you don’t end up with lost data.

    Thanks for your consideration.

    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。

    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…

  11. 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.

  13. 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…

    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.

  16. 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.

    For now, OneDrive app's file upload/auto-uploading feature confirms that the “Uploading” is not displaying if there are many files existed. By not displaying the number of remaining files, there is a difficulty to confirm the required time and upload completion timing by users.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
