  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Allow us to open PowerPoint files which is shared with enabling [Block Download] option

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    [ダウンロードを禁止する] を有効にした際の共有時の動作について
    Allow us to open PowerPoint files which is shared with enabling [Block Download] option


    ■Description(内容):
    [ダウンロードを禁止する] 機能を有効にして OneDrive for Business 上の PowerPoint のファイルの共有を行った場合、共有を受けたユーザーが iPhone および Android 端末のブラウザーでファイルを開けない。
    [ダウンロードを禁止する] 機能を有効にして共有を行った場合も、Word ファイルや Excel ファイルと同様に iPhone および Android 端末のブラウザーから共有を受けた PowerPoint ファイルを開けるようにしてほしい。

    If PowerPoint file which is stored in OneDrive for Business is shared with enabling [Block Download] option, it is not available to open the file at browser of iPhone or Android devices.
    Word or Excel files are opened in same sharing situation, so it would be great if we can open PowerPoint files as well.

  5. Preserve offline files across sessions on apps

    When you are forced to log in again on the iOS app (for instance, if your password changes - which happens regularly in a lot of corporate setups) any downloaded files from shared locations get deleted.
    This can be quite annoying if every few months your AD password expires, all your downloaded shared files have to be downloaded again to use offline.

  6. Shared folder name synced to computer

    When I sync down the shared folders, a separate folder is created for each folder that is shared by the owner and with the name changed. We received multiple requests from our users that its confusing and would help to have a single folder created for the user who shared and all folders shared by that person will be in there.

  7. Relative paths for synced drives

    The path to file on OneDrive start with C:\Users&lt;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.

  8. Extending B2B SharePoint Library Content Sync to Non-O365 Organizations (or) Users

    Hello Team,

    It is great that Microsoft has introduced the B2B sync for recipients from O365 account holders. It would be great if this can be extended to any External User - like the users from Microsoft Account (gmail.com, outlook.com domain users) that are not on O365/Azure AD.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Bhanu

  9. Correct the behavior when accessing a team site via the site lists on the left of OneDrive for Business screen

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Business 画面左側一覧よりサイトにアクセスした際の動作について

    Correct the behavior when accessing a team site via the site lists on the left of OneDrive for Business screen


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business 画面左側一覧よりサイトにアクセスした際、右クリックの [プレビュー] にて表示させると編集モードにて表示するため編集が可能な状況となり、サイトの "更新者" の項目が変更されるため、直接サイトにアクセスした際の動作と同様に、右クリックの [プレビュー] にてプレビューモードで表示するように機能の変更を希望します。

    After accessing a site from the site lists on the left of OneDrive for Business screen, as we right click on an item and select [Preview], it will be opened in edit mode and the “Updated by” section of the site will be updated automatically.

    When we access the site directly and then right click on the item and select “Preview”…

  10. Provide a feature to restrict sharing between different domains.

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    共有の設定について

    Provide a feature to restrict sharing between different domains.


    ■Description(内容):
    同じ、テナント名において、ドメインを 2 つ作成します。
    サブドメイン としたドメインに対して、主のドメインのユーザーより誤って、サブドメインのユーザーに対して共有をできないように、同じテナントのドメインにて、制御できるような機能の実装を希望いたします。

    同じテナント名でドメインを2つ作成
    主ドメインのユーザーが誤ってサブドメインのユーザーに共有しないよう、異なるドメイン間での共有を禁止する機能を実装してほしい

    In case there are two different domains under the same tenant name, add a feature to prohibit sharing items between those two domains. We believe it will help to prevent users in the main domain from sharing items with subdomain users accidentally.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  11. use account alias to share one drive links

    Account Aliases are a great feature in Microsoft Office. It allows you to protect your account id while communicating and adds a later of protection to your primary email account from breach events and maintain privacy. While you can send emails from aliases in your account, when I share one drive links, my primary account id is displayed. We should be allowed to share links from our aliases to protect our account. This should be a universal features across all Microsoft Office products.

  13. OneDrive for Business shared folder settings

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):

    OneDrive for Business shared folder settings


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business の [共有] のなかにあります [自分と共有] と [自分が共有元] のフォルダーやファイルの一覧におきまして、SharePoint Online のようにビューを作成したりして、見やすいように表示の切り替えができる機能の追加を希望。
    また、OneDrive for Business より共有した、されたものか、SharePoint Online より共有した、されたものかを分かりやすく表示されるよう改善希望です。

    For improvement of usability and manageability, allow switching the view of the folder/file lists for “Shared with me” and “Shared by me” in OneDrive for Business shared folder, just like SharePoint Online that allow creating the view for simplicity.

    Also, simple clear display would be nice so that it is easy to identify whether it is shared/share from OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online.

    Thank…

  14. Make it work properly when working from different machines

    I have two excel spreadsheets that are updated by several devices and the failure rate of the sync is annoyingly high, Often I go in and it converts theworking copy to match the old one I have just opened on the machine I am then working on so I then have to spend time looking through the history to find an earlier version from another machine and restore, or reenter missing data. Other times I get a message to say the sync has failed - do I want to make a copy.

  15. File system for chrome os

    It would be nice to have an extension for the file manager in Chrome Os that fully supports Onedrive. There is actually one (I guess an independent third party) https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/file-system-for-onedrive/jbfdfcehgafdbfpniaimfbfomafoadgo but it doesn't work properly on my Chromebook.

    Currently, even though we deleted a user from Office 365, the data of the deleted user’s OneDrive for Business remains for a certain period of times. This might cause the problem because other users can access the shared items of deleted user’s OneDrive for Business.

    Therefore, I hope you to implement the feature…
