  1. File Notification

    Said a few times here in different ways, but basically... the owner of the onedrive gets an email notification if a file is uploaded or downloaded.

    When I name and save the files edited by Office apps, it is not possible to specify other users’ OneDrive for Business as the saving destination.
    I feel the inconvenience because I cannot specify the other user’s OneDrive for Business as the saving destination when I want to rename and save the files which shared by other users.

    Therefore, I…

  11. Recent Files

    Have a 'folder' for recent files. Have a time limit in days. To add to this have a 'folder' for each collaborator. We can see work evolution and be able to see what collaborators are working on and the status of the work.

    If you really want to make this powerful allow for a comment on the work. "Jim, this is the latest version for our client approval. Please submit if you approve".

    In summary this is a simple dashboard of current work.

    We purchased Office 365 Proplus to use Office Online apps in our organization, however, we don’t want our users to use OneDrive for Business in the cloud.

  15. Granular retention in OneDrive.

    At the moment we have a single overall days of retention when someone leaves.

    We have had on a couple of occasions requirements to extend retention after someone left outside of our policy which is set to the standard 30 days. In this case the person had sensitive data in their Onedrive.

    We do not wish to keep everyone for longer just the ability to keep the data longer on an exception basis.

  16. Support Linked Excel Files

    Excel on OneDrive doesn't support linked workbooks, i.e. links between workbooks are broken each time OneDrive syncs. This is crazy as so many users have linked workbooks on there desktop machines.

    Microsoft had an enterprise solution that worked in 2005, so why can't you port that across to OneDrive.

  20. Have trouble renaming local versions of shared Onedrive data. Would be nice to be able to rename locally to organize.

    Have trouble renaming local versions of shared Onedrive data. Would be nice to be able to rename locally to organize. We "Add to my one drive" and sync all our local version to the office Onedrive cloud. Can't retitle the local versions without messing with the sync.

    Also, seems that Onedrive is not compatible with syncing some titles and it is hard to determine what is wrong with this title: IMG_4453.CR2
