  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. "Request files" is not available

    If I try to use "Request File" that was rolled out in November 2019,
    The message "Anyone links with folder edit" needs to be enabled " is displayed and is not available.

    My organization doesn't currently allow “anyone with tne link".
    Imagine a scene where many members in an organization submit reports to OneDrive.
    In the case of a shared folder, participants can view each other's reports,
    which creates risks such as data tampering and accidentally deleting other people's files,
    which is not good.

    If “Request files” are available in your organization, the problem will be solved.
    I hope the…

  6. 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.

    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 well.

  11. Mass file deletion notifications Language

    Mass file deletion notifications in OneDrive for Business and SharePoint are currently sent in the Default Language for the Site not the user's own Language. This is confusing for the end user. It's not possible to change the Default Language after a Site is Created. These notifications should be sent in the Default Language for the User's Profile, not the Site Default.

    We use notifications when sharing files on OneDrive for Business.
    There are many employees in the organization, so a lot of mails get sent around, and in order to allow the identification of important mails among them, we want to reduce the number of unnecessary mails being sent.

  15. Allow the sync directory to be changed for individual folders on OneDrive for Business

    *English follows Japanese

    Allow the sync directory to be changed for individual folders on OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):
    現在の機能として、OneDrive for Business はアカウント単位での同期が基本となっているため、同期場所の変更はアカウント単位で行う必要があります。OneDrive for Business に保存しているフォルダーごとに、同期場所の変更ができないため、フォルダー単位で同期場所の変更ができるような機能の実装を要望します。

    Currently, syncing is based on individual accounts, and therefore the sync directory can only be changed on a per-account level. Since it is not possible to specify a different sync directory for different folders saved on OneDrive for Business, we would ask that you make this possible.

  16. Time bound sharing links on all sharing options not just Anonymous

    With anonymous links IT can set a time limit on when a link expires.

    It would be great to be able to set that via an IT admin policy for a maximum and for users to be able to set an expiry on all types of links.

    For internally shared links I would like to see a notification when the link is about to expire with a reminder to move documents to SharePoint if they need to be retained and shared.

    Also to allow them to extend the share for x amount of days.

    This highlights people keeping everything Onedrive

  17. Delete warning is not good

    The warning when i delete files in SharepointOnline(SPO) lib from OneDrive is not clear enough as i see it. The files delete also deletes files and folders in SPO, and by that deleting files for all users, this should be very clear. We have a lot of users who wants to stop syncing files but do the mistake of deleting files.....

  18. AutoCAD/Adobe and Onedrive Sync

    We are a large Design and Engineering department trying to move from local server to the cloud as this would make our life easier especially while working with different offices globaly.

    We use Autocad with a lot of Xrefs. We found that across our team, when someone open a CAD file, it disappears from all the other peoples onedrives on their computers.

    This is an issue because if this file is reloaded, it disappears and shows as missing, until the person that is editing it, saves and closes it.

    If you work on a local server, or even with google…
