  2. user review access tools/wizard

    It would be great to be able to review actual shared files with whom and then quickly be able to remove the shares or individuals that aren't revenant anymore.

  3. I want a single set of shared folders across the whole company which I can invite users to under specific permissions.

    I want a single set of folders relevant to my organisation which I can allow existing or new users to access. As people come in and out of my company I want to be able to fine-grained permissions to people about what they can/cant do with the folders and content.

    I DONT want content to be assigned to specific people so that when they leave their content is obliterated. I want content to be assigned and shared to the company, not individuals who may be transient.

  5. Save the shared file link to your account with a click rather than download

    When someone shared a file link that opens up the file, there should be an option to "Add to OneDrive" rather than just Download the file or view online.

  8. Have a Read only pop up for PDF Forms already in use

    I currently share our many PDF forms and multiple people edit them on mobile devices. If two people have one file open, there’s no warning that data could be compromised. Whoever closes out the file last will have their edits saved. I would love to see a Read only notification when trying to access the form so that there’s no confusion. Much like how Excel will give you that same type of warning so you don’t end up with lost data.

    Thanks for your consideration.

  9. Possibility to preset the view-option for shared folders (e.g. "Photo" for Picture Galeries)

    It would be great, if you could preset the view-option for shared folders.
    So far, "List view" is automatically preset. But not only for photographers it would be great, if they could preset folders that only contain pictures to"Photo view".
    It would be sufficient, if the folder would "memorise" the last view that the owner has used.

  10. More control sharing a folder

    I've been working on shared folders with different teams on my company, but only my account can control permissions on the files uploaded in that shared folder even if the file was uploaded by another person. I think they would control if someone has permissions to edit or view a file if they want to, not depending from my account permissions.

  11. search functionality on links outside of organisation. This is already ab

    Search Functionality on documents shared to a user outside of your organisation via web link.

    Dropbox already have the facility to search over any folders shared in a specific link to a user outside of an organisation . This is extremely helpful when there is a large mount of data shared over multiple folder and sub folders including the OCR text within a PDF.
    Why does OneDrive not have this functionality?

  12. Allow different levels of access to different files in a shared folder

    If I share a folder, it would be nice to not have to give full edit access to every file or only view only to every file.

    I want to be able to have the shared person to have edit access to some files and view only to the rest.

    Trying to put view only on one file in the shared folder puts them to view only for every file.

  16. Allow synchronizing folders on different devices

    Link a folder on your desktop to a folder within OneDrive using 'mklink /j'
    So any changes within the folder on your HDD is synced with the OneDrive folder.

    Now, I would like to have a folder on my laptop HDD synced with the OneDrive folder, so whatever I change on either device, it will be synced to the other thru OneDrive.

    Probably not (yet) possible. That's to say, I haven't found a way to get this done.

    Currently, we perform co-authoring in Excel 2016 by using OneDrive for Business sync client.
    At this time, when contents edited in an offline environment by multiple users under co-authoring are switched to online, they are overwritten and saved in the file. However, the problem we recognize is that the edited contents of the user who became online later will always overwrite the file. It will be overwritten without…

  19. OneDrive Personal Shared Folder Email Digest Summary

    SUB-FOLDERS and FILES added by OTHER USERS in a FOLDER THAT I SHARED does not reflect in the notification email - only changes to existing files reflects in the summary.

    Even though other users owner of the files - I am still the owner of the folder - and this qualifies as changes to this folder surely.

    If anyone has a workaround in the interim then please inform - support says feature not supported.

    ANOTHER ISSUE:

    the subject of email says "... and 10 others edited your shared files"

    the number appears to be the number of edits - not…

  20. Sharing with External Users

    Sharing with External Users
    Share a file with 2 external people in OneDrive, a person with a guest account (A) and a person without a guest account (B)
    Message saying both user A and B are outside of your organization (good)
    Click copy link - shows error message: "You cannot create a secure link containing both people inside and outside of your organization." => hard to understand for a user
    Ideally, the OneDrive link should work, with a guest account for A and a guest account proposal for B.
