  4. You need to rethink sharing from the ground up

    I have been trying to collaborate with a colleague by sharing a folder so that we can both access a set of Office documents. I have been shocked by how poorly setup the sharing system is in OneDrive. There are multiple systems (Onedrive, Teams, Sharepoint) that are incompatible with one another. There are options for granting "direct access" and creating a "shared link". The sharing system is not intuitive and is unnecessarily confusing. It seems like MS has been pushing together different tools without rethinking the total user experience. My suggestion is that you scrap the entire model and start…

  5. Add a quick way to share as pdf

    We often shared files as PDF instead of the original format. Right now we have to open, download, convert with god reader, then send. Would be great if one of the share options was to share as pd so that could be done in one clicn without having to open or download the file.

  6. Share a view only folder that can be synced to external B2B relationships computers

    For a customer of ours we want to share a folder (view only) to local pc's of their clients.

    Our customer has a group over 1000 B2B related clients that always want to be up to date with the latest manuals of our customer's products. Also when there is no internet available.

    With OneDrive it is possible to share folder through a link that the customer could give to his B2B relationships, but when this is a view only link, the customers clients can't add this folder to their own OneDrive to sync it to their local computer.

    I did…

  7. onedrive personal share with business

    When adding a share for specific people in personal OneDrive, allow entry of a Microsoft account email address of an Office 365 business user. Right now it only seems to accept email addresses for a personal account. So, the business user would need to create an additional, separate personal Microsoft Account to allow a personal OneDrive share to them.

  8. Onedrive shared folder have 1 bug that can LOCK the collaborative members account.

    I use the onedrive for win10 to backup PC Desktop items (Z's computer). Its contain 250,000 number of files (pdf, xlxs, word and litter picture). total 110GB.

    Z share it out to the specific email (B's email).

    When B received Z's shared folder and click "Add shortcut to My files", this Desktop appear in B's onedrive. Now, B edit & access Z's desktop items in onedrive for win10.

    After 2 days, B's Microsoft account locked by Microsoft. The reason is:" We've detected some acticity that violates our Microsoft Services Agreement and locked your account."

    Now, Z shared the desktop to…

  11. I would like the ability to automatically share all pictures uploaded to pictures tab.

    Currently, you have to select folders or files to share. My pics upload automatically from my phone, I want them all to be shared without having to go through and select them and then share them.

  12. Default share must be "Specific people", not "Anyone with the link can edit".

    For an organisation, defaulting to "Anyone with the link can edit" makes it easier to unintentionally, or unwisely, grant the wrong level of access to users, and introduces the possibility of it being re-shared with outside parties who should not have access. It is far better to default to the most secure option, "Specific people", or "People in the organisation" also being acceptable.

  13. Copy / Move options enhanced in the browser

    Please could we enhance the copy / move options in the browser in either or both of these ways.
    1 - as well as providing a Current Library option please can we add a Current Folder option. This would help when we have to navigate many folders deep and avoid lots of un-necessary clicking.
    2 - make the copy / move pane a tree view rather than showing only one level at a time - something more akin to the left hand pane in file explorer.
    Thanks,
    Paul

  14. Date modified on a folder should reflect the last date that any file/folder within it was modified

    It is very confusing that the date modified for a folder in OneDrive is the date that the folder was created and not the date when things within it were modified. It also makes it look like folders haven't been used in years, when actually the files within are modified every day (but you would have to go into the subfolders to find that out).

  15. Local Copy Only (Do not Synchronize to Cloud)

    As a User, I need the ability to opt-out specific files/folders from synchronizing to the cloud so that I do not face consistent synchronization issues with multiple files constantly changing (i.e. Node Modules / Development).

    Currently, OneDrive allows me to opt-out synchronizing specific files/folders, but the process only deletes the files on my local machine and continues to store the files within the cloud. This is extremely useful in certain scenarios, but I also need the opposite.

    With OneDrive becoming more engrained into the Windows OS, now my desktop and documents folder are automatically included to synchronize with OneDrive. I…

  16. Allow folders to be ranked for upload. So most important folders/files are uploaded first

    SHaring folders with a team that is waiting is sometimes frustrating because they cannot see the particular file you refer to.

    It ends up that we just email some files so that we don't have to wait for the random assignment of folders to finally select the one we want to see.

    Broadly I'd like to mark folders for secondary upload AFTER the primary folders/files have replicated.

    Like you would select most folders and files as secondary and support so that individual files or folders are replicated first.

    It's these files first... and then the rest as pot-luck.
    Or
    These…

  17. Renaming of onedrive structures

    When syncing with sharepoint, onedrive does not update the top level company name, even after it is renamed in the tenant. This makes it impossible to rename the company within the onedrive utility, even though the office 365 tenant shows te renamed company. This is a basic need and should be enabled.

  18. Block downloads on Shared Folders

    Currently when you share a folder from OneDrive you're unable to block the downloading of ANY files within that folder (even if those file types you can block if you share the individually).

    Even if the Allow Editing box is unchecked, the recipient can still download any files within that folder.

    It will be great to be able to restrict downloads from the Shared Folder as often users want to share out a significant number of files and its not great having to share a link for each individual file.

  19. Option to turn off the email notification from the commenter side

    Option to turn off the email notification from the commenter side in excel, email should be sent on to @, not to everyone.

    there is an option to turn off notification from the receiver side, but it cannot be that i have to ask all stakeholders to turn off their notification for that reason, this should be from the commenter side.

    Thank you !

  20. It is difficult to check that all photos have been transferred from Samsung Cloud to Microsoft One Drive

    Produce a report that confirms that the transfer is complete.
    Report how many photos have been successfully transferred and how many have failed.
