  1. 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.

  5. Implement a feature to import the sync setting from another PC

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    共有元フォルダーの同期設定について

    Implement a feature to import the sync setting from another PC
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    現在、OneDrive for Business ならびに SharePoint Online で共有されたフォルダーの同期を実施する際、共有元のフォルダーにアクセスして同期を実施する必要がある。
    複数端末で同期設定を実施する場合、上記操作を実施するのに時間がかかるため、設定済み PC 内の同期内容をエクスポートし、別 PC に同期設定情報をインポートする機能の追加を希望します。

    To sync folders which are shared by OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online, users need to access the original folders first and then perform the sync. It takes time if you want to perform sync setting at multiple devices, therefore, we hope the feature will be implemented to export the sync settings of a PC and then import the settings to another PC.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    When we are getting close to the storage limit of OneDrive for Business, the system automatically sends notification e-mails stating that “You’re getting close to your storage limit.”

    For improvement of manageability, it would be nice if admins could modify the title and texts of the notification e-mails.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  11. File system for chrome os

    It would be nice to have an extension for the file manager in Chrome Os that fully supports Onedrive. There is actually one (I guess an independent third party) https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/file-system-for-onedrive/jbfdfcehgafdbfpniaimfbfomafoadgo but it doesn't work properly on my Chromebook.

  12. Access Sharepoint shared folder in 'Shared with Me' in App

    If I share a folder within a SharePoint library to a user (who has other access to the libary), I cannot see this folder in the "Shared with Me" when using either the Outlook for iOS or Android App. The folder DOES appear when using a browser so the permissions and access work.

    Furthermore, if I open the email invitation to the shared folder on a phone/tablet and click on the link, the device will open OneDrive and into the shared folder. However, if I return to OneDrive at a later date, there is no way to get back to…

  13. Public (without logging in) upload to a shared folder

    Make it possible to create a share forlder with Bill, send the link to him at bill@gates.com and let Bill just click on the link and upload/create files to that folder without signing. Folders could also be password protected so that Bill needs to know that to access the share.

    背景として、テナント内で一斉に OneDrive の同期クライアントの更新を行うことで、ネットワークに負荷がかかる可能性がある。

    We would like to know the OneDrive sync client update timing beforehand.

    OneDrive for Business 上のごみ箱の保存期間については既定で定められており、変更を行うことができない。そのため、ごみ箱に追加されたアイテムが削除されるまでの期間を、任意で変更できるよう機能の追加を要望します。​​

    We feel inconvenient that the retention period of the Recycle Bin on OneDrive for Business is set by default so that there is no way to modify the value of period.

    Therefore, we hope the feature to be added that allows the user to freely change the value of period that the items added to the Recycle Bin are deleted.

  19. Provide the more detailed information for Invalid file types in OneDrive.exe

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    新しい同期クライアント (OneDrive.exe) で利用できないファイルの種類について

    Provide the more detailed information for Invalid file types in OneDrive.exe
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    新しい同期クライアント (OneDrive.exe) を使用し、従来の同期クライアント (Groove.exe) の制限事項の "無効なファイルの種類" に記載の以下のファイルのアップロードの動作検証を実施いたしました。
    <調査結果>
    *.laccdb、*.tpm、thumbs.db、EhThumbs.db、thumbs.db

    通常同期フォルダー上では同期が完了すると "緑のチェック マーク" "青い雲のマーク" などが付きますが、当該のファイルについては同期フォルダー上で何も付かない、またエラーの表示がないことを確認いたしました。
    なお、ブラウザー上からアップロードが完了したかを確認した際は、当該のファイルは表示されませんでした。

    *.tmp
    同期フォルダー上からアップロードを実施いたしましたが、同期フォルダー上で "同期中" の矢印のマークが回転したままの状態となり、同期が完了しない動作を確認いたしました。
    また、タスクバー上の同期アイコンはエラーが表示されず、"OneDrive は最新の状態です" と表示されております。

    上述の、従来の同期クライアント (Groove.exe) で "無効なファイルの種類" として指定されているファイルについては、新しい同期クライアント (OneDrive.exe) を使用した場合にも同期が正常に完了していないように見受けられるため、新しい同期クライアント (OneDrive.exe) 側の制限事項の公開情報にも記載していただくか、または新しい同期クライアント (OneDrive.exe) の制限事項に含まれていない理由などについて詳細を記載していただくようお願いいたします。

    I tested the uploading behavior of files stated as Invalid file types in a support article for Groove.exe, using with OneDrive.exe. Followings are the verification results I’ve got.

    <Results>
    *.laccdb、*.tpm、thumbs.db、EhThumbs.db、thumbs.db

    Once we finish the sync in the sync folder, normally the folder should get "green check mark"…

    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.
