  2. Send email to all shared with

    I would like to have option to select all users that I have shared file with and send them email notification.
    This can be very usefull when you hfor example restore file from previous version due to something and you want to notify everbyody that they can work with it or the have to refill their data into such file.
    Currently it is not possible, users has to be picked one by one.

    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business 上に保存しているファイルを Outlook 2016 の "OneDrive リンクとして共有" し、"アクセス許可の変更" の選択項目に認証コードで共有を行える様に機能の追加を要望します。また、OneDrive for Business の共有方法と異なるのは混乱を招くため、統一して欲しいです。

    We would like to share the files saved on OneDrive for Business via Outlook 2016 “Share as a OneDrive link” menu by using verification code. Therefore, please add an option that allows sharing files by using verification code to “Edit Permission” menu in Outlook 2016.

    In addition to that, we hope you to unify the way of sharing in OneDrive for Business and Outlook…

  5. Open Office files which are larger than 30MB without getting an error message.

    Open Office files which are larger than 30MB without getting an error message.
    Office files open by default in Office Online. If you try to open a file larger than 30MB or even worse if you share this file with others they will get an error message with an option to open the file with your locally installed office. Users mostly do not read this error message.

    Please provide us the feature to recognize users with same name on the sharing window for Modern UI.


    ■Description(内容):

    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.

    For preventing users choosing the wrong sharing destination,…

    This feature is already available for the personal OneDrive, by signing with a Microsoft account, however, it is not available for OneDrive for Business yet.

  10. Display file extension in OneDrive app

    ■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.

  11. OneDrive for Business - Implement shared folder syncing to desktop client

    We need the ability to sync folders that have been shared by another Onedrive for a Business user with the desktop client. You just rolled this out for personal OneDrive, but it seems like it's more important for Onedrive for Business

    現在OneDrive for Businessを使用中。現時点の動作では置換を禁止することができません。
    現在の用途として会社のファイルをOneDrive for Businessを使用しての共有をしている。
    多数のユーザーがおり同一ファイルを誰が置き換えることが頻繁にあります。
    その際置き換える前のファイルを保存しているユーザー、置き換えた後の正しいファイルを保存しているユーザーの2通りがいるという状況になるため
    ファイルの置き換え自体を禁止できる機能を希望しています。
    現在は監査ログにて上記内容を管理していますが、上述の機能を拡張いただけると大きく作業効率の向上が見込めるため機能の拡張を希望致します。

    We would like to see the feature to restrict file replacement in OneDrive for Business.

    Multiple users are using our organization’s OneDrive for Business to share our files, and file replacement for one item by some uses is happened frequently, eventually multiple users have different version (latest and previous) for one file.

    We trace the latest file (and owner) with using audit log, but our work will be more productive if we are able to on/off file replacement feature.

    Thank you…
