  1. IMPROVE VIDEO SHARING

    I suggest this is mandatory. There is a option to embed video on e.g. a blog. I did this several years ago on a blog with a large amount of kids-soccer-videos. At one point, these videos started to AUTOPLAY on my blog (originally they did not), obviously creating havoc on my blog. It was quite a job to correct this error.

    I did so by replaceing the word EMBED with the word DOWNLOAD in this embed link. Now the blog is back to normal, thank god. It does not autostart videos.

    SUGGESTION: Make a more advanced video sharing feature more…

  2. OneDrive Sync to display why set to readonly

    ODfB will set the Sync copy to ReadOnly if the Sharepoint document library settings for any one of Content Approval, Check Out, Draft Item Security, Mandatory Columns, Custom Views, Limited Lockdown Permissions or Permissions is incompatible with requirements. The ODfB client should display a checklist of the attributes that are required and indicate which one(s) are causing the ReadOnly setting to be set.

  3. Allow us to sync “favorite” or “Download” folders automatically

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    "お気に入り" や "ダウンロード フォルダー" を自動的に同期する設定について
    Allow us to sync “favorite” or “Download” folders automatically

    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    現在、OneDrive.exe の同期において、グループ ポリシーの設定で "デスクトップ"、"ドキュメント"、"ピクチャ" フォルダーを自動的に同期する設定は可能だが、その他 クライアント PC のフォルダー ("お気に入り" や "ダウンロード" など)との自動同期設定が提供されていないため、機能の拡張を希望します。

    At OneDrive.exe, currently auto sync feature is available for “Desktop”, “Document” and “Picture” folders by setting group policy, and I would like you to provide us the same auto sync feature for other client folders such as “favorite” or “Download”.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  5. Buenos días, Mi marido y yo tenemos dos cuentas. Estamos pensando en abrir una cuenta de Office365 hogar. Estamos prbando a poder sincroniza

    Now it is possible to share the folder Pictures, but it would be perfect for families to share this folder as it were one unic folder for both users in the way that all the photos of the family can be sync in the same folder with the automatic charge.

  7. Stop automatically sharing Office Lens files

    All files scanned with Office Lens are automatically shared with me. This could be hundets of files. There is no overwiew anymore in OneDrive and shared files. I want to disable automatically sharing for Office Lens. Actually I have to remove access file per file after scanning.

  8. Comment document updates

    I'd like to comment the updates of a sparticular file which is shared amongst the team.
    This would be essential for such document types, which are not editable (like PDF) or not editable by Office 365 totols

  9. Relative paths for synced drives

    The path to file on OneDrive start with C:\Users\<username>\ so each user will have a different path. This breaks the connection to source files in AutoCAD Map, making the drawing unusable to anyone other than the creator.

    If the path could be relative or not include usernames we could use OneDrive to store our files.

  10. OneDrive verification code emails

    When sharing files or folders in OneDrive for Business with users who are outside our organization, several users report to us that they do not receive the verification code email after clicking the 'Open' button in the first email they received.

    It would be nice if we could either retrieve the verification code for them or at least be able to confirm that the verification email was sent by message trace or audit log entry.

  11. Reduce the size of the "green tick" for synchronised files.

    I find the size of the green check mark / tick and other icons used to verify file synchronisation, covers 3/4 of the Microsoft icon that indicates which program the file type is associated to. This makes it difficult to see at a glance what file type you are looking at. I have several documents across multiple Microsoft programs (and other programs too) that have the same or very similar file name. This check or tick or upload icon, makes it extremely difficult to see which file is which and you usually have to look at the "Type" column instead.

  12. Major Security Hole in O365 / OneDrive

    THE ISSUE:

    We have discovered what represents a Major Security Hole in O365 / OneDrive, where the domain group "Everyone except external users” is being granted Read permissions for new objects and child objects, a default process that can not be altered.

    The Steps to produce the scenario are as follows:

    1. From a user's OneDrive Go to Site Settings
    2. Under Site Administration, click on Site Libraries & Lists
    3. Create a new Object (Library, List, App or Sub-site)

    Permissions set for newly created objects (and their items) are:
    a. *Owner* of the site has Full or “Owner” rights …

  14. default share dialog on OD4B doesn't allow entering "everyone except external users"

    When you click on share in OD4B, the dialog only allows getting links that work for everyone in the organization. But it doesn't allow you to enter "everyone except external users" when you want to share with everyone in teh company. The problem is that sometimes you want to change the permissions on the document so that everyone in the organization has access to it, but you don't want to send an email. There is currently no way to do that through the default share dialog.

    you can do that through the details pane which allows you to enter "everyone…

  15. Differentiate sharing rights by groupmembership

    Within our company we would like to have some users to be able to share documents with people outside the company, but other users should only be able to share internally.

    It would be great if this could be assigned by groupmembership. Now this has to be done with scripting and as we all know this has disadvantages when failing.

    This is already possible with the regions, why not make this possible within a region and groups.

  16. Acceso a todos tus archivos de la nube desde la PC pero sin descargarlos localmente

    Debería haber una opción que permita ver todos los archivos y carpetas de OneDrive en la carpeta de la PC sin necesidad de que estén descargados en la PC, seria algo como un acceso directo, por así decirlo, y que solo se descarguen temporalmente si se requiere abrir el archivo. Seria una forma de trabajar con los discos sólidos de poca capacidad, de esta forma no se mantienen sino en un buffer temporal ciertos archivos consultados en el momento. Actualmente conocemos que existe una única opción que es evitar que se descarguen carpetas o archivos de nuestro OneDrive a la…

  17. Create share link from desktop

    When you click on "Share" in Windows, the system opens a browser window to create a share link. That's mad. Why can't it be done natively in Windows?

  18. Integrate OneDrive with outlook

    OneDrive needs to be fully integrated into outlook app. Why is it easier to send OneDrive files from Gmail than from outlook. That ain't right.

  19. External Sharing without an Exchange Account

    Enable sharing with external users without requiring having an Exchange account.

    I can apparently share a file or folder with an external user, but they must be able to receive email at an Exchange address. When sharing is attempted there is no notice that sharing won't happen unless they have an Exchange account, it just doesn't happen.

  20. Dynamic Sharing the Personal Space of OneDriveHome
