  1. Maximum link Expiration - Allow exceptions to Tenant policy

    We greatly appreciate the maximum link expiration time policy that was recently implemented to OneDrive admin center.

    We have several use cases where we would like to exclude certain Office365 groups /SharePoint sites from this tenant level policy. Please add the ability to modify this setting on a per site level or white-list particular settings as an exception from this policy.

    Thank you!

  4. 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.

  5. I'm sure this has been suggested many times, but i'll just add my voice to the chorus

    I'm sure this has been suggested many times, but i'll just add my voice to the chorus anyway. We'd like to see a "no share" option with OneDrive. Keep all the existing sharing features, but add a simple storage-only option. Most people don't need to share (at least at our company), but do need the cloud storage (it makes replacing PC's A LOT easier). Any chance we'll see this in the near future? Thanks.

  7. Allow files to be uploaded from other websites directly with the link

    I would like to upload some files from other Cloud storages to one drive directly. Not by downloading to my pc and then again uploading.
    Instead allow files to be uploaded to my drive through a link from other cloud storages

  8. create a web page from an album in order to share pictures.

    My family just had a reunion, and of course we are sharing photos. My brother uses Icloud to share his. He does this by clicking an option to share as a web page. This is very convenient to share with people who don't have a MSFT ID.

  9. outlook

    I have several customers who have asked to be able to set an expiration date on a cloud attachment when sending through Outlook. Currently, a sharing expiration date can only be set from OneDrive on the web or OneDrive on Windows.

  12. nest shared folders just like google drive - the separate shared folders are insane for pc syncing and continuity of data filing

  14. Add more file tracking and notification

    Each user needs to be able to easily track their own shared files for download, access, edit, etc. Every other viable file sharing service has these capabilities. Each user should also be able to easily get email or direct notifications for any of the tracked changes listed above.

    We're a law firm and we need to share files and then be able to confirm when they are downloaded, accessed, edited, etc. We also need the option for email or direct notifications so that there are little to no delays to confirm said actions.

    We currently use Accellion and it does…

  15. Control edits

    I want people that I share a document with to have to get my permission as owner of the document before any changes are made to that document. They could edit but the suggested changes don’t get made unless I approve them. This is how google allows collaboration but the owner still had control. Thanks

  18. Enable recipients to allow sharing of files

    When sharing files with specific users, allow those users to share the file with others (similar to sharing option for PowerBI Dashboards).

  20. Allow sharing of OneDrive for Business between organizations.

    I have a url for a publicly shared OneDrive and need to download the files on a regular schedule. The Folders on the other OneDrive for Business are all in folders that contain zip files and there is no login so I can't join or share it with my OneDrive for Business.
