  1. Ability to UNLINK computers from my account ONLINE.

    I accidentally left a computer i was using linked to my one drive account and i can't unlink it and i don't want the user to know it needs to be unlinked because they may delete or use my file content. I want to be able to remove a computer from my account ONLINE. Example (xbox, netflix) i can remove any systems i no longer want to grant access from my system or from my online account)

  2. Regarding attributes on OneDrive for Business views

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Business のビューの設定項目について
    Regarding attributes on OneDrive for Business views


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business のビューの設定項目について、個人用の OneDrive では 写真に対して "撮影日" の項目がありますが、OneDrive for Business では現時点で機能として実装されていないことを確認しております。
    個人用 OneDrive と同様、OneDrive for Business においても "撮影日" の列は必要な機能なため、実装を希望いたします。

    On the personal version of OneDrive, there is an attreibute for photographs called “Date taken”, however it is not present in OneDrive for Business at present.

    The “Date taken” column is a necessary feature for OneDrive for Business as much as it is in personal OneDrive, so please add it in.

  5. Allocate personal space in a business account that cannot be seen by the Administrator

    Microsoft allows a max of 50 GB of personal Onedrive without purchasing another office 365 licence. If you have a business account including the office products - you should be able to set aside or buy additional private storage space over 50 GB not controlled by the company for personal files.

  7. user review access tools/wizard

    It would be great to be able to review actual shared files with whom and then quickly be able to remove the shares or individuals that aren't revenant anymore.

  8. Sharing (really) secure

    There is still no difference between email and link sharing in OneDrive. Whether by mail or by link, the person to whom I send the email or the link can, if it wishes, transfer the link or the email to a person with whom I do not want to share my documents oneDrive . The solution of password does not change anything since if the person transfers the mail or the link, it will give the password also.
    There should be, when I share by email, an identity check when connecting to my oneDrive documents. As for the oneDrive business…

  10. Download all items in a shared folder

    It would be helpful if you could download all files of a shared folder at once without having to log into a Microsoft account. At the moment it is possible to select all files, but a download button is missing. It shows only for individual files.

  11. I want a single set of shared folders across the whole company which I can invite users to under specific permissions.

    I want a single set of folders relevant to my organisation which I can allow existing or new users to access. As people come in and out of my company I want to be able to fine-grained permissions to people about what they can/cant do with the folders and content.

    I DONT want content to be assigned to specific people so that when they leave their content is obliterated. I want content to be assigned and shared to the company, not individuals who may be transient.

  13. Save the shared file link to your account with a click rather than download

    When someone shared a file link that opens up the file, there should be an option to "Add to OneDrive" rather than just Download the file or view online.

  15. More Support For failed-to-sync Documents

    I'm frustrated with the syncing issues I experience with OneDrive when there are multiple people in the document making changes. It has failed one too many times to the point where wrong documents have been sent out because someones changes didn't sync through. It seems to be too sensitive for this kind of stuff and very temperamental. I initially thought this was a wonderful feature but now I'm starting to really doubt its capabilities. There has to be a way to track peoples changes, or offer a solution, when the document fails for someone. Some kind of overall master merger…

  16. Allow options to watermark files that are sharing out externally

    Allow options to watermark the files to share our externally. So if the files are leaked, there will be either an IP or username watermarked to the document.

  17. Skip sync for a given regex pattern.

    There must be a possibility to provide some ignore patterns from syncing the folder.
    If there are folders named:

    Documents, Folder1, tmp, Folder2/tmp etc.

    then I would like to have a possibility to mark "tmp*" to ignore from being sync irrespective of location.

  19. Allow files/folders to be moved or renamed without breaking sharing links

    When sharing files and folders SharePoint Online/OneDrive for Business should use a Guid based URL. I have learned that changing a user's UPN or even the name of a folder or file can break those links due to the URL format.

    Box uses a unique folder or file id for all items and no matter if I move that file/folder or change the user's username the link does not break.

  20. Allow B2B Sharing without allowing guests to sync

    If I share content with a customer through B2B, they are/will be able to sync the content. When I remove the permissions, the content remains on their system (as I understand for Microsoft's documentation on B2B sync).
    This is opens up the potential for data leaks, since I'm no longer in control of my company's data. I would therefor like to allow B2B Sharing, but block users from syncing.
