  1. 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?

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    エクスプローラーから共有の状態を確認できる機能の追加を希望

    Enable checking sharing status of items on OneDrive for Business via Explorer


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business 上に保存されているアイテムを別のユーザーに共有している状態、および別のユーザーから共有されている状態をエクスプローラーから確認できる機能の追加を希望いたします。エクスプローラー上の同期フォルダーから共有設定が行えるため、エクスプローラー上で完結できる機能を希望いたします。

    I hope you to implement the feature that can check the sharing status of item on OneDrive for Business via Explorer, both items shared by me and items shared by other users.

    The sharing settings can be done by sync folders on Explorer so that I hope that the checking sharing status should be able to be completed within the Explorer as well.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    共有を受けた同期フォルダーの保存先変更について
    About changing the location of a shared sync folder


    ■Description(内容):
    現状においては、共有を受けたフォルダーに対し同期設定を行った場合、<会社名> のフォルダーが作成され、その配下に共有先同期フォルダーが作成されるが、保存先の変更が行えない動作である。
    共有を受けた同期フォルダーの保存先を、ユーザーの任意で変更できるように機能の拡張を希望します。
    Currently, when the sync setting is made to a shared folder, <Company Name> of the folder is created, and the shared sync folder is created under it, but the save location cannot be changed.
    I would like the feature to be extended so that users can optionally change where to save the shared sync folders.

    現在はファイルを移動する際に改めて移動先での権限設定や、リンクの再発行を行う必要があるため、移動元で利用している共有リンクから引き続きアクセスできるようにしてほしい。
    Please implement a feature that allows users to move files from OneDrive for Business that are shared with other users to SharePoint Online while maintaining the permissions.
    Currently when files are moved permission settings need to be set for the destination and links need to be reissued, so we hope that users can continue to access from the shared link used at the source.

  9. 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…

  12. Request File Feature button should be HIDDEN if disabled

    The new Request File Feature requires Anonymous link sharing. If this is disable the button still appears and instead provides users with an error, making them think the feature is broken. The Request Files button should be hidden or grayed out if unavailable.

  14. Transfer Ownership of Someone's OneDrive without losing current Shared Permissions

    We have a user who left and I would like to transfer their files to their replacement. I can do that but if I do the current shared permissions that are set on those files will be lost. there should be a way for this to happen without losing those permissions.

  17. Mout OneDrive on Linux

    I wouldl like to suggest a way to mount OneDrive on Linux. Google offers similar features for its drive.

    To have everything on the machine, eliminates the requirements of logging in again and again on the web.

  18. OneDrive Sync to Support Sharepoint Document Management features

    In order for Document Libraries synced from SharePoint to be available for Local Edit, effectively all SharePoint Document Management Library features must be switched off. The ODfB sync client should fully support the Content Approval, Check In/Out, Draft Item Security, Required Columns, Custom Views and Limited Lockdown Permissions features in SharePoint. It currently supports none of these and will make synced documents Read-Only if any of the above settings are used.

    ODfB must support all of these features if it is to be described/considered as a compatible Sync solution.

    We are aware that sometimes users cannot add a file when migrating items on SharePoint Online/OneDrive for Business by using SharePoint Migration Tool because the file path length exceeds the limit.
