    ■Title(件名):
    共有リンクからドキュメント ライブラリにアクセスした際にクラシック UI で表示される動作について

    Always open pages in the modern UI when accessing to Document Library from shared links


    ■Description(内容):
    共有リンクから OneDrive for Business や SharePoint Online ドキュメント ライブラリへアクセスした際に、クラシック UI で表示されることがある。
    ブラウザーの変更やキャッシュの削除、時間の経過でモダン UI に戻るも、クラシック UI のドキュメント ライブラリにアクセスした後 共有リンクからアクセスすると、クラシック UI 表示となりモダン UI に切り替えることができない。
    共有リンクからアクセスした際に、モダン UI でドキュメント ライブラリが表示されるよう改善して欲しい。

    We are aware that sometimes OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online Document Library is displayed in the classic UI as we access to those pages via shared links.

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

  3. Implement feature to exclude specified files from synchronization

    Need feature to not synchronize certain files, eg. temporary files. We use software that generates a lot of temporary files with a certain naming convention (fixed by software). Unfortunately, these temporary files are NOT removed when the software exits. So, as we collaborate on different computers, we would generate more copies of the same temporary files with each user's name appended to it when OneDrive synchronizes files from each computer. Therefore it would be beneficial (ultimately more efficient) if users can specify certain files (based on file name pattern) to be excluded from synchronization.

  6. Add more file tracking and notification

    Each user needs to be able to easily track their own shared files for download, access, edit, etc. Every other viable file sharing service has these capabilities. Each user should also be able to easily get email or direct notifications for any of the tracked changes listed above.

    We're a law firm and we need to share files and then be able to confirm when they are downloaded, accessed, edited, etc. We also need the option for email or direct notifications so that there are little to no delays to confirm said actions.

    We currently use Accellion and it does…

  7. Documents as a task in my To-Do's

    It would be great if I can add a document to my Task list in To-Do (like the new functionality in Outlook where I can add a email to my Task list.

    Today I scan my document which I get by post and save them directly in OneDrive. If I have for example a invoice, I would like to add a reminder for that.
    At the Moment I have a Workaround and send me my document by email and add this email to my To-Do App as a new Task.

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

    ■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.

  11. I think it would be a useful feature if I could see who of those people I have shared folders and files has been reading my OneDrive folders

    I think it would be a useful feature if I could see who of those people I have shared folders and files has been reading my OneDrive folders and/or files and when they have been reading those.
    The history of editing is already visible, but now I mean statistics only about opening the folder or file (readings), even by those who have read-only access.
    Compare the feature "has seen" of Facebook and Messenger.

    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.

  17. Upload only link to customers with no access to open files uploaded

    I would like to have ability to edit permissions for outside firms to only allow uploading to a folder on OneDrive. i.e. we can send customers a link to a OneDrive folder that only allows them to upload files and not open those files. Currently if I remove the ability to open files in permissions it also removes the ability to add files.

  18. Include OCR data in scanned PDFs

    Run OCR on any PDFs that have been added to OneDrive and make any text that it finds searchable. I know this is done for documents that have been added via the Lens app, but it would be useful for all documents in OneDrive, e.g. those that have been added from a scanner.
