      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.

      In order to check the file path length before the migration, it will be great if you could provide us a feature that allows confirming and/or exporting…

        • I think it would be a useful feature if I could see who of those people I have shared folders and files has been reading my OneDrive folders

          I think it would be a useful feature if I could see who of those people I have shared folders and files has been reading my OneDrive folders and/or files and when they have been reading those.
          The history of editing is already visible, but now I mean statistics only about opening the folder or file (readings), even by those who have read-only access.
          Compare the feature "has seen" of Facebook and Messenger.

            When we try to print word files which saved on OneDrive for Business from Word Online, the “Print Details” is displayed automatically.

            Since there is no option available to hide Print Details, it will be nice if we could choose to display/hide the Print Details freely.

              • Preserve offline files across sessions on apps

                When you are forced to log in again on the iOS app (for instance, if your password changes - which happens regularly in a lot of corporate setups) any downloaded files from shared locations get deleted.
                This can be quite annoying if every few months your AD password expires, all your downloaded shared files have to be downloaded again to use offline.

                    In case there are two different domains under the same tenant name, add a feature to prohibit sharing items between those two domains. We believe it will help to prevent users in the main domain from sharing items with subdomain users accidentally.

                      • Make it work properly when working from different machines

                        I have two excel spreadsheets that are updated by several devices and the failure rate of the sync is annoyingly high, Often I go in and it converts theworking copy to match the old one I have just opened on the machine I am then working on so I then have to spend time looking through the history to find an earlier version from another machine and restore, or reenter missing data. Other times I get a message to say the sync has failed - do I want to make a copy.

                              I hope you to implement the feature that can set a password to items when sharing data from OneDrive for Business. This feature is currently available in personal OneDrive and I believe it will be very useful if this feature could be used in OneDrive for Business as well.

                              Thank you for your consideration.

                                    • Direct download links

                                      As a publishing company using Onedrive, we often send zip files to our clients via Wetransfer because it offers direct download links.

                                      Ideally we'd like to send our own personalised, branded emails containing direct download links generated from Onedrive.

                                      We could send out emails with a link to access Onedrive that doesn't require login but find that users are put off by the often unfamiliar screen presented to them via Onedrive to download their files.
