    After moving those files to OneDrive for Business, the uploaded files will be disappeared once you do another operation or refresh Explorer. The names of uploaded files are still displayed but it says the file size…

    • Display file extension in OneDrive app

      *English follows Japanese
      ■Title(件名):
      OneDrive アプリにてファイルの拡張子を表示できるようにして欲しい

      Display file extension in OneDrive app

      ■Description(内容):
      Web版では表示されていることから、同じサービスで見え方が異なるのは統一感がない
      そのため、OneDrive アプリでも拡張子を表示する、または表示非表示を切り替える機能が欲しい

      File extension can be displayed in OneDrive for Business on the web, however, it is not displayed in OneDrive for Business app. Since both OneDrive for Business on the web and app are the same service, they should be more unified.

      Therefore, it will be great if you could provide the feature that can display file extensions or switch display/hide them in OneDrive for Business app.

      Thank you for your consideration.

      • Notify shared users when files/photos added to shared folder

        Users are notified when a folder is shared with them. But if files/photos are added after the folder has been shared the user is not notified that there is something new to look at.
        A good example is sharing a photo album with family where photos would be added to the album over time.

        Can some option be added to notify shared users when a folder has had new items added to it?

          When we are getting close to the storage limit of OneDrive for Business, the system automatically sends notification e-mails stating that “You’re getting close to your storage limit.”

          For improvement of manageability, it would be nice if admins could modify the title and texts of the notification e-mails.

          • Add albums shared with me to my album list

            When someone shares an album with me, it only appears in the "Shared with me" area of OneDrive, among other things this person shared, like folders and files.

            I think those shared albums should stay among my own albums, in the Photos area of OneDrive.

              • 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

                              Office 365 管理センターからアクティブなユーザーを指定し、 "OneDrive の設定 " から 外部共有を個別に制限すると、画面上反映されたように見えるも画面を更新すると元の設定に戻ってしまう。
                              PowerShell コマンドレットにて同様の設定が可能も、ブラウザー上からの操作が反映しないため、改善してほしい。

                              As we pick an active user on Office 365 admin center and turn on external sharing individually on OneDrive for Business settings, it seems like it’s properly applied. No errors, everything looks nice while external sharing is actually not applied as I refresh the screen.

                              For improvement of usability and manageability, allow individual external settings on a browser, without using PowerShell cmdlet.

                              Thank you for your consideration.

                                • Allow Remove photos from Shared Album

                                  It should be possible to Remove photos from a Shared Album. Shared Albums, with Editable permissions, only allows to Add photos, but not Remove photos from it.
                                  If I want to create a Shared Album from a folder with a huge amount of photos, to be able to get help from other users on deciding the final list of photos to be printed, whilst not changing the photos on the initial folder, this functionality would be required. It would allow collaboratively work on a Shared Album, without affecting the original set of Photos. A possible approach for this would be…

                                  • Share OneDrive files with anonymous links

                                    Hi

                                    It has been suggested that I put this feature request here (see https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_onedrivefb-mso_other-mso_o365b/share-onedrive-files-with-anonymous-links/79927f8c-3fae-4f85-a148-aec5de4122bc?tm=1534884711990)

                                    I have not been able to find a solution to anonymously share files we store on our company's OneDrive with the rest of the world.

                                    I find it very problematic that the generated links always contain a reference to the user who is sharing the file.

                                    This is problematic as, if we know who we share the file with in first instance, we haven't got the slightest clue who the file might be shared with further on...

                                    I would expect a similar behavior as on…

                                      SharePoint 管理センターでは問題なく設定が完了するも、同じ機能を利用した際に OneDrive 管理センターでは動作が完了しないため、改善してほしい。

                                      In OneDrive admin center, even though we set a specific IP address for access control and then click “Save”, the loading status continues and the setting is not reflected.
                                      We confirmed that the same process can be completed without any problem in SharePoint Admin Center.

                                      Therefore, I hope you to correct this behavior for us to complete control access settings.

                                      Thank you for your consideration.

                                      • Sharing between OneDrive for Business and OneDrive Personal

                                        As a person responsible for documents I want to share documents and colaborate with my business partners who have OneDrive Personal.
                                        As a teacher I want to share folder with my students to have up-to-date documents from all of them.

                                        One should be able to share a file from a OneDrive for Business Account to a OneDrive Personal Account in a way which is described here:

                                        The feature has been already requested here:

                                          そのため、OneDrive for Business 標準機能として、共有アイテムの所有者以外のユーザーからも、共有相手の詳細を確認する機能を実装してほしい。

                                          When sharing an item on OneDrive for Business with others, only item owner can see the details of shared user information including the number of shared users.

                                          It would be nice if every user, not only an item owner, could see the detailed information of users who are shared the items, by using OneDrive for Business standard feature.
