  1. I would like all my devices to sync with OneDrive because they don't if I enter files on my file Explorer on one bride they do not show up o

    I don't have an Idea but it sure would be nice if all my devices sync after I put information on one device through the File Explorer One Drive folder. When I first started to use One Drive it worked but your changed something and I cannot get my files to sink. Yesturday I added Photo's to my laptop but they are not on my desk top or other devices today.

  4. Adding a text editor / code editor

    Mew feature request:

    Adding a text editor for creating and editing text files will be great.
    This will allow working with source code files such c++, html, javascript, and working with many simple text files used by many apps.

    Would be great for collaborating with coworkers.

    This feature should be added in web version as well as in desktop and mobile versions.

  5. File Limit Makes OneDrive and SharePoint Worthless

    We are currently using Google Drive and DropBox to share files on our devices. We have Office 365, so we thought we would try OneDrive, but the two reasons it will never work are:


    1. File/Folder Limits are too low

    2. SharePoint integration

    Google Drive is so much easier to setup, you don't have to deal with something complex like SharePoint for something so simple, and you aren't handcuffed by file/folder limitations.

    As it currently stands, OneDrive is worse than worthless - we wasted our time even trying it out.

    It also seems the sync client is not nearly as good as…

  7. OneDrive is not compatible with Office365 if Sharepoint not hosted at Microsoft and latest version

    OneDrive is not copatible with Office365 when the Sharepoint is not latests version and not hosted at Microsoft.
    This is critical for a decision to pass to Office 365, or to abbandon OneDrive/SharePoint

  8. Bring back the sorting option for last modified date in OneDrive shared documents.

    The sort feature for "last modified date" for shared documents in OneDrive was removed with a recent update. This was a helpful feature and should be brought back.

  9. Display the error message instead of the message “Loading OneDrive accounts” when clicking [Share] button

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Business を利用していない場合にも、[共有] ボタンを押すと "OneDrive アカウントを読み込んでいます" と表示される。

    Display the error message instead of the message “Loading OneDrive accounts” when clicking [Share] button


    ■Description(内容):
    Office 2016 を利用する際に、OneDrive for Business を利用していないにも関わらず、[ファイル] - [共有] より [サインイン] をクリックした場合に "OneDrive アカウントを読み込んでいます" と表示され続けます。
    本動作はエンドユーザーにとって混乱を招く動作であり、情報が漏洩する不安を与える動作となります。
    実際に OneDrive for Business にアクセスができないとしても、セキュリティが確保されていることが確認できず、ユーザーによってはデータが転送されていると認識してしまい、管理者に問い合わせがあり業務がひっ迫します。
    本機能によって接続ができない場合はエラーがでるように改善、もしくは管理者側で非表示とできる機能の提供を強く要望いたします。

    When using Office 2016, if a user clicked [File]-[Share]-[Sign-in], the message “Loading OneDrive accounts” keep displaying on the screen even though the user does not use his/her OneDrive for Business. This behavior might confuse the users and give them anxiety about information leakage.
    Even though there is no capability to access…

  10. Clock based uploading, I only want to upload at night when I am asleep.

    My internet is not super fast, and anytime one drive is synching it kills the entire connection in my house. It sucks.

    So I pause it the entire day and when I'm doing stuff at night so I can use my network. I want to be able to set HOURS that I can have it upload, like midnight to 7am, or something like that.

  12. Have a Check-In/Check out System for CAD files, downloading files to a user's drive and locking it in Sharepoint until re-uploaded.

    This will allow for smoother remote work for the Engineering industry and all those who use CAD software. Also, maybe having the ability to check-out an entire folder as some CAD software has multiple files required in collaboration. Many companies, including my own, use custom AutoCAD user-interface and scripts in order to streamline tasks, so AutoCAD web does not work for us.

  15. Manager / supervisor

    It might be a good idea to have a person that is marked as a manager whom gets notifications when the files are updated. Then he or she can assess the workmanship of work done without calling or to go check if work was done.

  18. One Drive pour Autocad est problématique si plusieurs usager des documents.

    One Drive pour Autocad est problématique si plusieurs usagers des documents sur OneDrive.
    Nous ne sommes pas avisé si une personne utilise déjà un fichier, mais les informations d'une seule personne sont conservées.

  19. Allow us to restrict syncing document libraries per users

    Allow us to restrict syncing document libraries per users


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online のドキュメント ライブラリの [同期] ボタンを非表示にし、同期を制限したい。
    現在の機能ではサイト単位もしくはドキュメント ライブラリ単位で制限することが可能だが、ユーザー単位での同期の制限ができない。
    ドキュメント ライブラリの同期を、社内で承認したユーザーにのみ許可したいため、ユーザー単位での同期を制限する機能の実装を要望します。

    I would like to see the feature to hide [sync] button to restrict syncing document libraries at SharePoint Online. It is able to restrict on each site or library, but not on each user.
    We need to allow only specific users to sync document libraries in our organization, so it would be great if we have the feature to restrict syncing based on users.
