  1. OneDrive for Business: "Anyone can edit" does NOT, in fact, allow anyone to edit :(

    So when sharing from OneDrive, the default option clearly states "Anyone with the link can edit" and the official documentation (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/share-onedrive-files-and-folders-9fcc2f7d-de0c-4cec-93b0-a82024800c07) states that the intended behaviour of this grants anyone with edit permissions 'copy, move, edit, rename, sharing, deletion' rights.

    A recent change to OneDrive for security reasons has replaced edit permissions with very restrictive 'guest contributor' permissions.

    Can you please remove the wording "Anyone with this link can edit" because the links are guest-contributor links that CANNOT edit, and additionally feature a completely dead Sign-In button, so that even if someone has been specifically granted full edit…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  7. Share to Youtube account

    Why isn't YouTube an available partner to share video files with? YouTube has a rich API that can be integrated with.

  8. OneDrive and SharePoint Support for Git Repositories

    Would be really useful if we can leverage OneDrive in conjunction with SharePoint to host Bear Git repositories. We tried creating a Git Bear repository on SharePoint and accessed and shared it through OneDrive but ended up with OneDrive being 'confused' and most of its folders stayed in 'Pending Sync' state. We had consequently removed all Git folders and reinstalled OneDrive to get back to normal.

    Having Git repositories on SharePoint Online and accessing it through OneDrive would give developers a great cloud based Git environment !!

    Salam

  9. 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

  12. photo

    Shared photos don't seem to be searchable.

    I have shared a small folder with a family member, she opened the link and can now view those files. All is well, to a point.
    I use Lightroom 6 and tagging for the photos. The tags are uploaded to Onedrive and I can see the tags online in the information of the files.
    On my own account on a separate computer, the files are syncronized to that onedrive folder, but the tags to not accompany the photos.

    Back to the shared folder - the other user can search their own folders and…

  13. On the directory listing, show files that are currently open by another user in RED

    highlighting that a file is already open by another user makes the user aware of editing an already open file

  14. 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…

  15. Create OneDrive Temporary Photos "Link" Slideshow

    Apples IOS implementation is perfect.

    Select multiple photos including folders.
    Hit share which creates a temporary link.
    Provide link to third parties.
    Third parties will see a slideshow.

    Quick, easy, useful.. Currently OD does not have any elegant way to share multiple images on the fly.

    Unable to sharing data on OneDrive for Business from a browser on mobile devices


    ■Description(内容):
    iPad を除く、iPhone や Android のモバイルデバイスにて、ブラウザーから OneDrive for Business へサインインを行い、データの共有操作をすると、リンクの送信ウィンドウが自動的に終了し、データを共有することができない現象が発生するため、改善してほしい。

    When signing in to OneDrive for Business from a browser on a mobile device of iPhone or Android excluding the iPad and performing data sharing operation, the link send window is automatically terminated. This behavior prevents users from sharing data and it needs to be fixed.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  17. RESPALDO DE CARPETAS UBICADAS EN DIFERENTES DISCOS

    Como se debe proceder para respaldar carpetas ubicadas en un disco diferente de donde está instalado OneDrive. ¿Es posible?
    En mi caso lo tengo alojado en el disco D: para no ocupar espacio en el disco C:. PERO cuando deseo respaldar archivos de C: no se como proceder.
    Gracias por la atención

  18. Comentários

    O App e o sistema poderiam permitir comentar tanto arquivos, como pastas da mesma forma com o Dropbox permite.
    É simples e muito prático quando várias pessoas trabalham na mesma pasta ou projeto.

  19. OneDrive Personal VS OneDriveBusiness

    These two on the same computer is just bad news. Please how can I make it so that pictures from plugged in device go to business OneDrive and not personal, with auto-download of multi-media? Since the pictures are actually business related and not pictures of my family? I phoned support last year and the gist I got is that this is impossible... Is this so or is there a work around?

  20. Allow a person to belong to more than one onedrive account,

    allow a user joe@abc.com to connect to multiple OneDrive accounts. I volunteer at multiple organizations, and each has a OneDrive account for me.
