    I have recently started receiving spam shared files from unknown users. Can you enable a block user function to prevent this from happening?

  3. Support and Recovery Assistant - Add OneDrive B2B Sync External Sharing Troubleshooting Diagnostic

    The OneDrive B2B Sync feature has several settings that need to be configured on both tenants in order for the OneDrive client to establish a successful sync between the two organizations.

    Example of a list of settings that are needed are posted below.

    It would help if a support diagnostic was added to the current Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant (Sara) tool under the OneDrive diagnostics so we can quickly check the settings on both tenants to verify both are configured correctly to establish a successful B2B OneDrive Sync.

    日付の指定ができないため、過去の時点での利用状況を確認ができない。

    As we navigate to Admin Center>Reports>Usage>OneDrive usage, it is possible to confirm the usage status for each user at the time by exporting details.
    However, we are not able to confirm the usage status at the past time because it is not possible to specify the date.

    For that reason, it will be great if we could specify the past date to and confirm the size of used storage…

    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.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  9. 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.

  10. Allow individual external settings in Office 365 admin center

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Office 365 管理センターにてユーザーの外部共有が反映しない

    Allow individual external settings in Office 365 admin center


    ■Description(内容):
    Office 365 管理センターからアクティブなユーザーを指定し、 "OneDrive の設定 " から 外部共有を個別に制限すると、画面上反映されたように見えるも画面を更新すると元の設定に戻ってしまう。
    PowerShell コマンドレットにて同様の設定が可能も、ブラウザー上からの操作が反映しないため、改善してほしい。

    As we pick an active user on Office 365 admin center and turn on external sharing individually on OneDrive for Business settings, it seems like it’s properly applied. No errors, everything looks nice while external sharing is actually not applied as I refresh the screen.

    For improvement of usability and manageability, allow individual external settings on a browser, without using PowerShell cmdlet.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    OneDrive の同期クライアントの更新のタイミングを事前に把握しておきたい。

    背景として、テナント内で一斉に OneDrive の同期クライアントの更新を行うことで、ネットワークに負荷がかかる可能性がある。

    そのため、OneDrive の同期クライアントが自動的に更新されないように管理する機能の実装をお願いします。

    We would like to know the OneDrive sync client update timing beforehand.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

    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.

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

    *English follows Japanese
    ■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.

  19. Make co-authoring (syncing) work

    Currently, the co-authoring function works poorly on the Window Word client. The syncing lags significantly and it is so bad that real-time co-authoring is virtually impossible due to the text not showing up in real time, causing the texts to be locked. Moreover, whenever someone types more into the document before the slow syncing completes, conflicting copies of the same documents would be created and the OneDrive client will relentlessly ask me to choose an action to resolve this, and then only lead to losing information on either of the copies.
    Please fix real-time co-authoring.

  20. Generate SHARE LINK in advance ahead of time like DropBox!

    I hate the fact that oneDrive has to wait for the file to be uploaded before a link is ready to share. This forces people like me to WAIT till that upload is finish in order to generate a share link.

    In many other Cloud Sharing solutions like DropBox, the flow is much better.

    As soon as you add a file in the ShareFolder, a share link is ready to be copy-pasted right away and if the other party visits that link and the file isn't done uploaded yet, it simply tells the user that the file is still uploading.…
