  1. Sharing with a can comment option

    Please add the option to share a file or folder with the view settings but with an option that would allow me to toggle people adding comments. Google drive has this functionality and it's very useful when sharing files that require a technical background to edit but require feedback from non technical people.

  3. One Time Download Link

    This option is already offered by other sharing files options. It is very useful if you want to share a file only with one person so after he downloaded the file the link is not working anymore.

    Display simple the used storage size of libraries synched with local PC


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business 同期クライアントで同期しているデータの容量を確認する際に、同期フォルダーのプロパティに表示されるサイズやディスク上のサイズ、同期クライアントの設定画面など、様々箇所に容量が表示される。

    To confirm the consumed storage size of data which is synched with OneDrive for Business Sync client, there are many places the data to be displayed. For example, we can check the size in Sync folder properties, or on a disk, or in settings in Sync client, etc.
    Currently it is hard to confirm the storage size because sometimes the properties in Sync folder does not show the correct value (we noticed…

    If UPNs or mail addresses are changed, then sharing links from OneDrive for Business become unusable, and the users those items are shared with can no longer access them.
    Please add a system that automatically updates sharing links when OneDrive for Business URLs are changed due to UPN changes.

  6. it would be amazing if it proactively searched for duplicate files: by name/date/size/type & facial recognition & told location of ea. file

    its almost impossible to go back and clean up old photo albums when multiple kids have shared folders and photo streams and cloud albums, and then thumb drives, archive and mass external storage drives. it would be amazing if one drive (regardless of whether you are on the app or website), proactively searched for file duplicates, using a minimum of 5 different search criteria (size, type, date, name, facial recognition...) and temporarily segregated them, for review & acknowledgement of various locations where the document resides. Option to erase duplicates, compress image, leave as is, move, and so on would be…

    We are aware that sometimes users cannot add a file when migrating items on SharePoint Online/OneDrive for Business by using SharePoint Migration Tool because the file path length exceeds the limit.

    In order to check the file path length before the migration, it will be great if you could provide us a feature that allows confirming and/or exporting the list…

    When we use sync client of OneDrive for Business, not all the Excel files will be “read only”.

    Check out feature is able to make files as read only, but it takes a lot of time and increased workload to use this feature for the file we use frequently.

    Formerly files became “read only” when multiple users open the one file, so we would like…

    We would like to share the files saved on OneDrive for Business via Outlook 2016 “Share as a OneDrive link” menu by using verification code. Therefore, please add an option that allows sharing files by using verification code to “Edit Permission” menu in Outlook 2016.

    In addition to that, we hope you to unify the way of sharing in OneDrive for Business and Outlook…

  12. Open Office files which are larger than 30MB without getting an error message.

    Open Office files which are larger than 30MB without getting an error message.
    Office files open by default in Office Online. If you try to open a file larger than 30MB or even worse if you share this file with others they will get an error message with an option to open the file with your locally installed office. Users mostly do not read this error message.

  13. 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!!!

  14. 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.

    When we share something on OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online, if the tenant has users with same first and last name there is no way to recognize which one is the user you tend to share.

    On the Classic UI, e-mail address is also shown with each user name in the list and we recognize them clearly.

    For preventing users choosing the wrong sharing destination,…

    File extension can be displayed in OneDrive for Business on the web, however, it is not displayed in OneDrive for Business app. Since both OneDrive for Business on the web and app are the same service, they should be more unified.

    Therefore, it will be great if you could provide the feature that can display file extensions or switch display/hide them in OneDrive for Business app.

    Currently, when you click on “Outlook” in the OneDrive for Business sharing settings, you are redirected to the Outlook on the Web screen, but instead of usernames only the mail addresses of recipient users are shown, which is hard to understand.
    Please change this so that users’ names are shown.
