  1. 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

  2. Office 365 Home: Request File Feature for OneDrive

    This feature is inaccessible for 365 Home users. It is only available for 365 Business users for reasons never explained. Please make it available for both.

    The existence of this feature and its nonexistence within the OneDrive for a Home subscription is not stated during the purchase of the plan and is missing from the plan details. Whatsmore, Home users pay more for additional utilities (sway, skype, etc) with their 365 than the base business plan or business plan 1), but are still not afforded this feature. That leaves you with the option of paying more for what you don't…

  3. 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.....

  6. Transfer Ownership of Someone's OneDrive without losing current Shared Permissions

    We have a user who left and I would like to transfer their files to their replacement. I can do that but if I do the current shared permissions that are set on those files will be lost. there should be a way for this to happen without losing those permissions.

  7. Allow users to share everything when sharing folder.

    Today when sharing a folder with a user, the user would not see some of the files contained in that folder. Files that are not visible to users are previously shared with others by sharing those individual files. All files that had not been individually shared are fine and the user having folder level access see them.

    This is an inheritance issue.

    This might be "working as intended" but it would be helpful to have a checkbox on the folder level Share dialog to allow users to share everything under that folder including unique permission items.

    Similar to what we…

  10. Notify shared users when files/photos added to shared folder

    Users are notified when a folder is shared with them. But if files/photos are added after the folder has been shared the user is not notified that there is something new to look at.
    A good example is sharing a photo album with family where photos would be added to the album over time.

    Can some option be added to notify shared users when a folder has had new items added to it?

    I hope you to implement the feature that can check the sharing status of item on OneDrive for Business via Explorer, both items shared by me and items shared by other users.

    The sharing settings can be done by sync folders on Explorer so that I hope that the checking sharing status should be able to be completed within the Explorer as well.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Please implement a feature that allows users to move files from OneDrive for Business that are shared with other users to SharePoint Online while maintaining the permissions.
    Currently when files are moved permission settings need to be set for the destination and links need to be reissued, so we hope that users can continue to access from the shared link used at the source.

  15. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. Add multiple Personal accounts on a computer / laptop / application

    Currently, on Office 365 Home, only 1 Personal account is allowed on OneDrive application, alongside Work / School accounts.

    It'd be great if we can create multiple Personal accounts (shared users on the same laptops/ pc, who are also sharing the 5 accesses to Microsoft Office) on the same device, as certain users (in my case for example) interchange between devices according to usage / occasion, and share those devices with family members.

    While it is true we can use the same Personal account and create multiple folders, we'd like to have segregation of personal space electronically.
