    ■Title(件名):

    Correct the behavior of the slider of External sharing setting in OneDrive admin center


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive 管理センター> [共有] >[外部共有] の設定で、共有レベルのスライドバーを変更して保存すると、更新中のまま正常に変更されないため、修正してほしい。

    Even though we open OneDrive Admin Center> [Sharing] Tab > [External Sharing] and move the sliders to the settings we want and save it, the settings remain in the status being updating and do not change normally.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  4. Allow the user to freely change the value of period that the items added to the Recycle Bin are deleted.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):OneDrive for Business 上のごみ箱の保存期間の変更について

    Allow the user to freely change the value of period that the items added to the Recycle Bin are deleted.


    ■Description(内容):
    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.

    Thank you for your continued support.

  5. Restrict file replacement

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    置換の禁止
    Restrict file replacement


    ■Description(内容):
    現在OneDrive for Businessを使用中。現時点の動作では置換を禁止することができません。
    現在の用途として会社のファイルをOneDrive for Businessを使用しての共有をしている。
    多数のユーザーがおり同一ファイルを誰が置き換えることが頻繁にあります。
    その際置き換える前のファイルを保存しているユーザー、置き換えた後の正しいファイルを保存しているユーザーの2通りがいるという状況になるため
    ファイルの置き換え自体を禁止できる機能を希望しています。
    現在は監査ログにて上記内容を管理していますが、上述の機能を拡張いただけると大きく作業効率の向上が見込めるため機能の拡張を希望致します。

    We would like to see the feature to restrict file replacement in OneDrive for Business.

    Multiple users are using our organization’s OneDrive for Business to share our files, and file replacement for one item by some uses is happened frequently, eventually multiple users have different version (latest and previous) for one file.

    We trace the latest file (and owner) with using audit log, but our work will be more productive if we are able to on/off file replacement feature.

    Thank you…

  8. 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.

  9. OneDrive with Shutterfly and digital photo frames

    It would be really awesome if OneDrive could be integrated with shutterfly it would also be really great if there is an integration with OneDrive and digital photo frames so you could log into your account and display folders as slide shows.

  11. Change Access Permissions for File Request Feature

    Love the new file request feature and can be very useful in my org. We would like to see a different approach for access and not have to enable anyone with a link access. We would like the specific people sharing option, to lock whom the request stays with. I does not seem secure that I can forward that link to another use to upload whatever they want.

  12. 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.

  13. Provide the ability to synchronise from PC's on local LAN before traversing to internet

    If I have a PC that has all the OneDrive content synced (especially Documents and Pictures), and I want to have the same files available (with or without taking space on that PC), to another PC(s) the sync should occur through my local LAN, not over the internet connection. This will save Megabytes or Gigabytes of WAN traffic, thus decreasing the time required to sync, plus also make files available to devices that may normally need to sync through a metered connection.

    When OneDrive for Business files are shared, if the shared user downloads the file and tries to upload the same file, it becomes possible for the user to save the file in some other folder. We hope a feature will be added to prevent the save location of the shared file from being changed.

    We can switch the display back to the modern UI by changing browsers, clearing caches or a certain period of time pass.…

  17. Share with 'allow reshare' with permissions capability

    Reshare with permissions ability or delegate sharing ability.

    Currently when I share a file with a permission level e.g. read I would like to be able to specify whether the recipient can further share with the same permission level (or less) without having to get approval from the document owner.
    This would be the same for a file being shared with edit permission with a specific recipient. That recipient should then be able to reshare the document to further recipients with the ability to specify either edit permission or less with read-only permission. The recipient should not be able to…

  19. Give users ability to set DEFAULT SHARE = VIEW ONLY!!!

    Quite annoying that such a basic setting isn't available to regular users (only site admins)

    because of this the RIGHTCLICK>Share oneDrive Link in Windows Explorer is absolutely useless to a lot of people because it defaults to an EDITABLE SHARE!!!

    I don't understand why this feature has to be queued up and awaiting votes, this is so basic!!!
