  1. Allow addition of alias names for shared folders

    I share folders all the time with other users and vice versa. The issue becomes their naming structure can actually start interfering with ours. Think of having 10 people share "Pictures" and some from the same person!!! I want the ability to add alias names to folders to keep naming consistent with my filing system.

  2. sync Onedrive to azure joined PC only

    Onedrive shoud be able to sync when a user is logged on to a Azure joined PC. When the same user is not logged on to an Azure joined PC (for instance private PC or from a different company) the user should not be allowed to sync Onedrive.
    Can this be made possible? Is is it possible already?

  3. Allow different levels of access to different files in a shared folder

    If I share a folder, it would be nice to not have to give full edit access to every file or only view only to every file.

    I want to be able to have the shared person to have edit access to some files and view only to the rest.

    Trying to put view only on one file in the shared folder puts them to view only for every file.

  5. Allow attach onedrive file from synced folder to outlook similar desktop file

    We are using OneDrive for business in our company, seems users struggling when they have opened file from synced folder of oneDrive and can't attach it to outlook till they close the file!

    but if file is opened from desktop (not synced with onedrive) you can attach it to outlook while you are open it!

    is there is workaround or fix for this?

    Regards,
    Ehab

  6. Ability to Share folder on the web

    When I am using the OneDrive for example in Trello I would be able to share there also the folder instead of only files. That would extremely simplify the cooperation on my files with my team.

  8. increase storage to 15Gb like Google Drive

    I like onedrive, but I'm considering changing to Google Drive, because if offers for free 3x more space than onedrive :( Its a petty that I would change, because I like OneDrive.

  9. Add Grant Access Capability to Sharing Interface for all UIs

    Allow users to grant access to a file/folder, rather than just sharing links, from all OneDrive/SharePoint UIs (web, desktop, and mobile). Right now, mobile and desktop only let you create/copy sharing links. However, this isn't useful if you later need a link that will for sure work for everyone with access (whether view or edit). The "people with existing access" link option works great for users who have been granted access, but isn't helpful when a bunch of people only have access only through specific sharing links.

  14. Select Folders to Synchronize from SharePoint before starting Synchronization process

    When I synchronize a SharePoint library with my OneDrive, I want to select the folders that I synchronize before it starts the synchronization process. We have some large libraries where it wastes time and energy to synchronize everything at the beginning.

  15. Allow synchronizing folders on different devices

    Link a folder on your desktop to a folder within OneDrive using 'mklink /j'
    So any changes within the folder on your HDD is synced with the OneDrive folder.

    Now, I would like to have a folder on my laptop HDD synced with the OneDrive folder, so whatever I change on either device, it will be synced to the other thru OneDrive.

    Probably not (yet) possible. That's to say, I haven't found a way to get this done.

    OneDrive for Business 同期クライアントを利用して、Excel 2016 で共同編集をしている。
    この時、共同編集中の複数のユーザーがオフライン環境で編集した内容がオンラインに切り替わった際にファイルに上書き保存されるが、後からオンラインになったユーザーの変更内容が上書き保存されてしまう。
    同一のセルを編集していた場合にも "マージされませんでした" といった競合に関するエラーが表示されず、そのまま上書きされてしまう。
    他の変更内容を上書きしないよう、共同編集時にもエラーが表示されるようにしてほしい。

    Currently, we perform co-authoring in Excel 2016 by using OneDrive for Business sync client.
    At this time, when contents edited in an offline environment by multiple users under co-authoring are switched to online, they are overwritten and saved in the file. However, the problem we recognize is that the edited contents of the user who became online later will always overwrite the file. It will be overwritten without any…

  18. OneDrive Personal Shared Folder Email Digest Summary

    SUB-FOLDERS and FILES added by OTHER USERS in a FOLDER THAT I SHARED does not reflect in the notification email - only changes to existing files reflects in the summary.

    Even though other users owner of the files - I am still the owner of the folder - and this qualifies as changes to this folder surely.

    If anyone has a workaround in the interim then please inform - support says feature not supported.

    ANOTHER ISSUE:

    the subject of email says "... and 10 others edited your shared files"

    the number appears to be the number of edits - not…

  19. 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…
