  1. Sharing between OneDrive for Business and 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:

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

    To confirm the consumed storage size of data which is synched with OneDrive for Business Sync client, there are many places the data to be displayed. For example, we can check the size in Sync folder properties, or on a disk, or in settings in Sync client, etc.
    Currently it is hard to confirm the storage size because sometimes the properties in Sync folder does not show the correct value (we noticed…

    When we share something on OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online, if the tenant has users with same first and last name there is no way to recognize which one is the user you tend to share.

    On the Classic UI, e-mail address is also shown with each user name in the list and we recognize them clearly.

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
