    There is no function to synchronize between different clients for SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business and OneDrive.

    I hope such a functionality to be added so that we can easily manage files between all the above three services.

  2. Allow view-only users to see changes in real time?

    A little background:

    We have shared out an Excel file. It is a simple log of parts that are received. This is filled out daily and shared with the Service Department.

    We shared the file to five people. Three people have editing capabilities, though that is just in case the main person(s) is not here. Only one person modifies the file on a regular basis. I used the "Anyone with the link" option. The other two people were set up with "Allow editing" unselected. In both cases, the "Send" option was used.

    What we are running into is that the…

  3. 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…

  5. Sometimes I send one file but the person has access to the whole folder and maybe more! I suggest a way to shut down that text.

    See the above. I sent a single file and the person had access to the entire folder! Give me a choice of only one file or more when sending using my texting on my Android phone.

  6. 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.

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

    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 won’t…

  10. 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…

  12. Allow branding and customization of emails that notify user when a shared link is clicked.

    When a user receives an email that a shared link has been accessed, there is no branding on the email so it appears to be a phishing scam. Would like to add branding to these notifications.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  17. OneDrive and SharePoint Support for Git Repositories

    Would be really useful if we can leverage OneDrive in conjunction with SharePoint to host Bear Git repositories. We tried creating a Git Bear repository on SharePoint and accessed and shared it through OneDrive but ended up with OneDrive being 'confused' and most of its folders stayed in 'Pending Sync' state. We had consequently removed all Git folders and reinstalled OneDrive to get back to normal.

    Having Git repositories on SharePoint Online and accessing it through OneDrive would give developers a great cloud based Git environment !!

    Salam

  18. 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

  19. order photo prints directly from photos

    once there was the wonderfully convenient feature of ordering photo prints directly from Onedrive? Where has it gone? Like so many other things, Microsoft gets rid of features without promoting them and doesn't give users time to even know they exist or figure out how to use them.
