  1. Access Request Settings on file or folder level

    A User can configure his OneDrive so items cannot be reshared by the recipients of a file / folder or that Access Requests are being sent to an owner if they Arbe being reshared, see https://www.sharepointusecases.com/2014/11/managing-sharing-access-requests-sharepoint-site/

    Unfortunately, this Setting can only be configured for a user's whole OneDrive, even if only a few files need this extra Level of security. Please make it possible to make this Settings for particular files or Folders.

  2. Enable specifying the external hard disks as the sync destination in OneDrive for Business

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Business の同期先に外付けハードディスクを指定したい

    Enable specifying the external hard disks as the sync destination in OneDrive for Business
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    現在 OneDrive for Business で指定可能な同期先は PC 内蔵の ハードディスク ドライブのみとなり、外付けハードディスク ドライブおよび、NAS は同期先に指定できない。
    外部のデバイスを同期先に指定できるよう、機能の実装をお願いいたします。
    Currently in OneDrive for Business, the only sync destination we can specify is the PC-built in hard disk drive. We are not allowed to specify the external hard disks or NAS as the location to sync to.

    In order to improve usability, we hope the feature will be implemented to allow us to specify the external devices as the location to sync to.

    Thank…

  3. Sync OneDrive Photo Album and Windows Photos App tags / people recognition

    Windows 10 Photos App is great!
    I would need the information / tags / people recognition synced to OneDrive - so the information is not local only and can be shared with other PCs / people as well (and be backed up in cloud)

  4. OneDrive for Business External Sharing permission set to "Anyone"

    Please allow to set OneDrive for Business External Sharing to "Anyone" without changing SharePoint External Sharing permission.

    Currently, we cannot change OneDrive for Business External Sharing permission to "Anyone" if SharePoint External Sharing permission is set not to share with External organization.

    We want to enable this feature so we can set Expiration Date and Password when sharing files to Anyone thru OneDrive for Business.

    OneDrive for Business に 15 GB 以上のファイルもアップロードできるようにしてほしい
    (背景)
    ・1ファイル15 GB以上ある大容量の動画ファイルを クラウド上にアップロードしたい。
    ・現在、クラウドへのアップロードの上限が 最大 15 GBとなっているが、動画データの特性上、圧縮を行っても 15 GB 未満へ容量を低減させることが難しい。
    ・1 カットで撮影された動画などの場合、分割し、小分けにしてアップロードすることが現実的ではない。
    ・他の編集ファイルや関連ファイルとのリンクやデータの整合性を保つため、アップロードのために動画データに手を加えることは好ましくない。

    We would like to have the ability to upload over 15 GB size files to OneDrive for Business.

    <Background>
    -We would like to upload large video files over 15 GB to the cloud.
    -Currently uploading limit to the cloud is set to 15 GB. However, it is hard to reduce each video file’s size less than 15 GB even though…

  6. Direct download links

    As a publishing company using Onedrive, we often send zip files to our clients via Wetransfer because it offers direct download links.

    Ideally we'd like to send our own personalised, branded emails containing direct download links generated from Onedrive.

    We could send out emails with a link to access Onedrive that doesn't require login but find that users are put off by the often unfamiliar screen presented to them via Onedrive to download their files.

  9. implement the feature enabling to restrict internal file share

    implement the feature enabling to restrict internal file share

    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business において、テナント内のユーザー間のファイルの共有を制限したい。社内のユーザー間であっても、安易に共有が行われてしまうことによって漏洩のリスクが高まります。管理者によって制御ができるよう、テナント内のユーザー同士のファイル共有を制限する機能を要望します。

    I am thinking of sharing the files among the users of OneDrive for Business's tenant.

    At this moment, there is a possibility that the data leak might be caused by a simple share even within company user, and therefore I hope the feature to be available that could enable to make a limit on the file share among the users of a tenant so that an admin could execute the restriction for shared files.

  10. Public (without logging in) upload to a shared folder

    Make it possible to create a share forlder with Bill, send the link to him at bill@gates.com and let Bill just click on the link and upload/create files to that folder without signing. Folders could also be password protected so that Bill needs to know that to access the share.

  12. Mass file deletion notifications Language

    Mass file deletion notifications in OneDrive for Business and SharePoint are currently sent in the Default Language for the Site not the user's own Language. This is confusing for the end user. It's not possible to change the Default Language after a Site is Created. These notifications should be sent in the Default Language for the User's Profile, not the Site Default.

  13. Time bound sharing links on all sharing options not just Anonymous

    With anonymous links IT can set a time limit on when a link expires.

    It would be great to be able to set that via an IT admin policy for a maximum and for users to be able to set an expiry on all types of links.

    For internally shared links I would like to see a notification when the link is about to expire with a reminder to move documents to SharePoint if they need to be retained and shared.

    Also to allow them to extend the share for x amount of days.

    This highlights people keeping everything Onedrive

  19. Office/Onedrive path length limit problems

    Path length limit in OneDrive (business) in filesystem does not match the limits in Office in collaboration mode

    When working on OneDrive for business in Office (Word in the example), you sometimes cannot save a file right next to an existing file, using the same number of characters (when path length is long). The reason seems to be that is that path length check does not take URL expansions into account (spaces in path becomes %20 and then count as three chars).

    See examples here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_word-mso_win10-mso_o365b/use-onedrive-for-business-as-ordinary-filesystem/e5ca4e00-eec8-4a60-9cef-37e82be5fe46

    I ended up disabling collaboration features, forcing Word to use Windows file API instead…
