  2. Stop sharing multiple shared files and folders with one or a just few clicks.

    I want to be able to stop sharing multiple documents with one or just a few clicks. I have shared 96 files and folders and want to stop sharing all without having to go into every single sharing.

  3. OneDrive client for Linux

    Many organisations employ the use of multiple Operating system environments for client facing services whilst also utilising the most out of their Office 365 / Microsoft 365 subscriptions. Unfortunately there are OneDrive sync clients for all but Linux.

    Granted Linux is a broad term, and for me personally I am looking for a native Linux client in the same sense as the MS Teams native Linux client.

    Privacy settings when creating a site from "Create shared library" in OneDrive for Business

    When creating a site connected to a Microsoft 365 group from [Create shared library] in OneDrive for Business, I'd like users with tenant administrator privileges to be able to select [Public] and [Private] in "Privacy settings" while non-administrators only to select [Private].
    Please make this possible so we can restrict users from freely creating public sites.

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

    If you share items with external users from OneDrive, it is possible to prevent the download of image files etc. but not video files.
    We want to avoid issues where external users can download shared videos, so please add a way to prevent this from happening.

  8. When sharing in the OneDrive sync client, make it possible to search for users using 2-byte characters

    OneDrive 同期クライアントでの共有時に、2 バイト文字で共有先ユーザー検索ができるようにしてほしい
    When sharing in the OneDrive sync client, make it possible to search for users using 2-byte characters


    ■Description(内容):
    現時点の動作として、ブラウザーで OneDrive for Business にアクセスした場合は、ファイルおよびフォルダーの共有時に 2 バイト文字で共有先ユーザー検索を行うことが可能である。
    しかし、OneDrive 同期クライアントでは、ブラウザー版 OneDrive for Business のように 2 バイト文字で共有先ユーザー検索を行うことができず、ユーザーのアドレスを指定する必要がある。
    OneDrive 同期クライアントの利用者が多く、この動作では不便であるため、OneDrive 同期クライアントの共有時にも 2 バイト文字で共有先ユーザー検索が行えるよう、機能の拡充を希望します。

    Under the present behavior, if you are accessing OneDrive for Business via a browser, when you share a file or folder, it is not possible to search for users to share with by using 2-byte characters.
    In the OneDrive sync client, just like in the browser version it is not possible to search for users…

  9. Excel links to local drive when opening SharePoint synced file with OneDrive

    When linking an Excel file opening the synced one with OneDrive of a SharePoint online site library, the link is created to the file location in the local drive of the user instead of to the address in SharePoint.

    This makes the links don't work for other users opening that file.

    If you open the file to link directly from the SharePoint site library it is correctly created.

    For SharePoint sites synchronized with OneDrive the links should be created to SharePoint, otherwise this is a limitation for collaborating with SharePoint Online files between users using OneDrive Sync.

  10. Issue where users cannot share with invited guest users from the sync client

    ■Title(件名):
    ユーザーが招待したゲストユーザーに、同期クライアントから共有できない事象について
    Issue where users cannot share with invited guest users from the sync client


    ■Description(内容):
    ユーザーがブラウザー上から外部のユーザーをゲストユーザーとして招待したあと、登録されたゲストユーザーへ同期クライアントから共有しようとした場合に、[完全一致が見つかりません] というエラーが表示されて共有出来ない事象が発生する場合があります。回避策はあるものの、管理者側でのゲストユーザーのアカウントを確認したり、共有をブラウザーから行う必要があり、一般ユーザーが外部のユーザーを招待したり同期クライアントからの共有を行うことが多い環境では運用上望ましくありません。
    ゲストユーザーを登録する場合のアカウントを適切に登録する、または同期クライアントから共有の際にメールアドレスで組織内での名前解決が出来るよう機能の改善を希望します。

    There are confirmed issues where sometimes if a user invites an external user as a guest user via the browser, and then attempts to share with that user, now registered as a guest user, using the sync client, the error “Exact match not found” is shown and they cannot share.
    Even though there are workarounds, it is necessary to check guest user accounts on the admin side, and share via the browser, which is not appropriate for an…

  12. No error message showing that the uploaded file in OneDrive is corrupted.

    When we tried to download the uploaded files in OneDrive and used the File Compare, we found out that the files from OneDrive are corrupted. There is no error message or sign that they are corrupted. It is more better to have an error message or warning that the uploaded file is corrupted than downloading it before realizing that it has a problem.

  13. Synchronization of files "shared with me" in One Drive Windows explorer

    It would be really useful to access the files that are shared with me directly from Windows explorer instead of accessing them only in the internet browser.

  14. Add ability to extend expiration date for shared links

    I always set an expiration date when sharing files/folders (especially anonymously). I tend to set these expiration dates in the near future. It would be nice to be able to extend these as necessary.

  16. 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.

  20. Add a "SYNC NOW" icon / shortcut

    This tech is supposed to be all about the cloud, in real time. I want to move from one device to the next in 2 mins and have confidence that every device has the current document version. The user needs to know when the sync has started / completed.
    Pls add a prominent shortcut icon to the header "area" that allows the user to manually start the sync process.
