  1. Share OneDrive files with anonymous links

    Hi

    It has been suggested that I put this feature request here (see https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_onedrivefb-mso_other-mso_o365b/share-onedrive-files-with-anonymous-links/79927f8c-3fae-4f85-a148-aec5de4122bc?tm=1534884711990)

    I have not been able to find a solution to anonymously share files we store on our company's OneDrive with the rest of the world.

    I find it very problematic that the generated links always contain a reference to the user who is sharing the file.

    This is problematic as, if we know who we share the file with in first instance, we haven't got the slightest clue who the file might be shared with further on...

    I would expect a similar behavior as on…

    • Allow individual external settings in Office 365 admin center

      *English follows Japanese
      ■Title(件名):
      Office 365 管理センターにてユーザーの外部共有が反映しない

      Allow individual external settings in Office 365 admin center
      ***************
      ■Description(内容):
      Office 365 管理センターからアクティブなユーザーを指定し、 "OneDrive の設定 " から 外部共有を個別に制限すると、画面上反映されたように見えるも画面を更新すると元の設定に戻ってしまう。
      PowerShell コマンドレットにて同様の設定が可能も、ブラウザー上からの操作が反映しないため、改善してほしい。

      As we pick an active user on Office 365 admin center and turn on external sharing individually on OneDrive for Business settings, it seems like it’s properly applied. No errors, everything looks nice while external sharing is actually not applied as I refresh the screen.

      For improvement of usability and manageability, allow individual external settings on a browser, without using PowerShell cmdlet.

      Thank you for your consideration.

        • 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…

            The old version of OneDrive had QR codes automatically generated in the Share menu. PLEASE bring them back in the new Sharing menu.

            • Block a security group from sharing

              As a school we would like to have the ability to prevent students from sharing out of their OneDrive for Business. They are in a security group, so being able to limit sharing by group would be great.

              • Prevent re-sharing by non-owners from a tenant-level

                By default anyone who a file is shared with in OneDrive has the ability to re-share that file with additional users. This setting can be disabled on a site-per-site basis via Set-SPOSite with DisableSharingForNonOwners.
                It would be very useful to have this setting on a tenant-level (via admin center), as today using the above cmdlet means we need to re-run this for every new OneDrive site that is provisioned, and to make sure users don't reset this flag.

                    In OneDrive admin center, even though we set a specific IP address for access control and then click “Save”, the loading status continues and the setting is not reflected.
                    We confirmed that the same process can be completed without any problem in SharePoint Admin Center.

                    Therefore, I hope you to correct this behavior for us to complete control access settings.

                    • 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.

                      • Support the propagation of properties from Sharepoint into a synced File Explorer list

                        When document lists are set up on and O365 SharePoint site, you can add properties such as 'Description' or 'Release Date'. However, once this library is Sync'ed to File Explorer, the only thing that comes across is the file name. Hence, you end up with a long list of file names without knowing what the file is, as an example. I am using SharePoint to store my company's released procedures.

                                "スクリーン ショットを自動的に OneDrive にアップロードする" 機能について、実装の要望を行いたい。
                                これは Microsoft アカウントでサインインして利用する個人用 OneDrive の機能であり、OneDrive for Business と同期した場合についてはこの機能は利用できないので、是非とも OneDrive for Business でも利用できるようにしてほしい。

                                I request you to implement a feature to upload screenshots automatically to OneDrive for Business.
                                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.
                                 For improvement of usability, it will be very useful if we could have this feature in OneDrive for Business as…

                                • Come up with a design where OneDrive For Business can be set for External Sharing at each Individual User OneDrive level

                                  Currently when you set OneDrive for External Sharing - its a tenant setting, meaning all users in a tenant with OneDrive can share externally. This is a nightmare for governance perspective for any mid to large corporation. OneDrive External Sharing needs to be configured in a way where a user's OneDrive can be configured for External Sharing and others are not.

                                  Also to configure OneDrive for External Sharing, SharePoint Sites should not be a dependency to be configured for External Sharing. Now SharePoint sites can be created through many services and this is absolutely a big headache to manage.

                                  Thanks

                                    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.

                                    Thank you for your consideration.

                                      • 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.
