    現時点の SharePoint Online の標準機能では、管理者が各ユーザーの OneDrive 内で組織内で共有しているファイルやフォルダ一覧を抽出する方法が用意されていない。
    管理者ユーザーを各ユーザーの OneDrive の "管理者" ロールにあてることはできるが、1 ユーザーづつしか確認ができない。

    In the current standard features for SharePoint Online, there is no feature or method by which administrators may fetch lists of files and folders that are shared within their organizations by each user’s OneDrive.
    We can assign an administrator to the “administration” role if each user’s OneDrive, but by this method, it is only possible…

  6. Need to be able to organise One Drive shared files into own folders without losing shared editing access

    I desperately need to be able to organise shared files into my own folders without losing the shared access or editing ability. Currently, with no way of doing this, all I have is an ever expanding list of hundreds of shared files that make it impossible to locate anything. It seems ridiculous that this was not thought of in the design of One Drive. Google Drive does this - why can't One Drive? At least at the moment, my company hasn't taken away our Google Drive access. This is probably going to happen at the end of the year, and…

  8. Restrict sharing items without permission in OneDrive for Business

    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Business で共有相手が別ユーザーを共有できる動作について

    Restrict sharing items without permission in OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、OneDrive for Business 内のフォルダーに対して、編集権限を付与し別ユーザーに共有した場合、共有されたユーザーがフォルダー内上部の [共有] リンクから、別ユーザーに共有リンクを送信できる動作となる。
    権限の管理が付与されていないユーザーが別ユーザーに共有リンクが送信できないよう機能の改善を希望します。

    If I grant the edit permission to a folder in OneDrive for Business and share the folder with another user, the shared user will be able to share the folder with other users by sending the [Share] link from the folder.

    For improvement of manageability, add an option to restrict users who have no right to manage permissions from sending a shared link to other users.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  10. Please add option for anonymous sharing so that originator himself should be able to stay anonymous

    Currently it seems to me that it is not possible for the originator of an anonymous file share to stay anonymous himself. The "Added" (by) folder information is still visible to everyone having the anonymous link.
    Thanks!

  13. Pictures Folder Is A Convoluted Mess - Needs to respect origin and folders

    Pictures come from a camera via my PC and from my phone. I organize folders on Android by the edit software I use. I organize photos on Windows by the subject. I can't make any sense out of how, let alone why, 1D merges and recombines the pictures and folders. Please, just have a folder for the source device, then folders under each device as they are on the device, and wtf is cameraroll all about?

    We noticed that as we share items on OneDrive for Business from Outlook client by using file attachment feature, the items will be shared with anonymous access links. Because of that reason, we cannot receive the alert when the shared users share those items with another user.

    Therefore, I hope the feature will be implemented that can send alert emails to…

  18. Remove un-synced library from explorer

    I stopped syncing a shared document library but the folder remained in my file explorer.

    Because the un-synced folder remained in explorer I accidentally deleted the other synced library, which deleted all of the files in the library. Removing the un-synced folder from explorer immediately would prevent this user error in the future.

  20. Prevent the creation of a manually created folder in the root of the Tenant Client Synce Team sites

    From the explorer view, and the root hierarchy of Team Site Sync'd data under the Tenant name. End-user are able to manually create a new folder and sub structure. This data does not get sync'd.

    This results in data being resident to the device only, and not sync'd back.

    If the same action is done from within a Team Site structure, the data is sync'd.

    Need to understand how to limit/prevent users from creating this non-sync'd folder structure.
