  2. Share OneDrive files with anonymous links

    Hi

    It has been suggested that I put this feature request here (see https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_onedrivefb-mso_other-mso_o365b/share-onedrive-files-with-anonymous-links/79927f8c-3fae-4f85-a148-aec5de4122bc?tm=1534884711990)

    I have not been able to find a solution to anonymously share files we store on our company's OneDrive with the rest of the world.

    I find it very problematic that the generated links always contain a reference to the user who is sharing the file.

    This is problematic as, if we know who we share the file with in first instance, we haven't got the slightest clue who the file might be shared with further on...

    I would expect a similar behavior as on…

  3. Shared With Me view should show files / folders shared from other organizations

    Shared With Me only shows files shared by colleagues within an organization. If files are shared from another organize they don't show up under the "Shared With Me" view. The only way to access files shared from another organization is to know the direct URL.

  4. Additional information (apart from name) on sharing

    We have a Problem on sharing documents with others.While entering a name in sharing page, some suggestions comes up.

    The problem is, that some people are named the same. For example some people are called Thomas Müller. On sharing all of them are mentioned and it isn't possible to see, which entry it the right one.

    It would be nice, if a user can see department or something else from Active Directory on sharing suggestion.

  6. Sharing status in onedrive for business

    Weather we share files with internal or external users, sharing status shows only "Shared". It would be helpful, If it shows sharing type with text or any other visual indicator.

    The same status visual indicator in "shared by me" page and in windows explorer icon would help reviewing all my external access.

  8. Integrating SharePoint and OneDrive with Autodesk Revit

    We are construction company and I'm extremely happy to see one step in the right direction that Microsoft Office 365 is integrating with DWG.. but both MS and Autodesk already knows that AEC industry is moving towards BIM and they should go ahead and attach A360 viewer like thing with SharePoint. As a large partner of MS as a construction company we will really like to see that MS is doing thing in this direction which will increase our usage of platform which in turn benefits all of us.

  9. Allow users to change OneDrive for Business sync folder name freely.

    Allow users to change OneDrive for Business sync folder name freely.

    ■Description_JP (内容):OneDrive for Business 同期クライアントを利用した際に、同期フォルダーの名称が既定で 「OneDrive - 会社名」 となっており、変更できない。「会社名」 部分を変更するためには Office 365 に登録している会社名を変更しなければならず、ユーザーが自由に同期フォルダーの名称を変更できるようにして欲しい。 

    When I use OneDrive for Business sync client, I am unable to change a sync folder due to its default name of "OneDrive - Company".

    I hope users to modify liberally a sync folder name because I need to change the company name registered in Office 365 in order to make a change for the part of "Company".

    We are able to set expiry date for sharing with “Anyone with the link”, but this setting is not available for “Only people in your organization” or “Specific people” links.

    Thank you for your considerations.

  11. Prevent shared file to be deleted by other users

    When sharing a file from OneDrive for Business, users with edit permission can delete the file. They can open the document, click the top left breadcrumb to access the user's OneDrive where they can delete the file. I understand that technically, sharing creates a sharepoint permission etc... However from a user point of view, this doesn't make sense. You don't share a document from your OneDrive in the intend to let other people delete it. In an O365 group I understand but from it's personal space ? I have already multiple cases of people deleting someone else file and it…

  12. Add albums shared with me to my album list

    When someone shares an album with me, it only appears in the "Shared with me" area of OneDrive, among other things this person shared, like folders and files.

    I think those shared albums should stay among my own albums, in the Photos area of OneDrive.

  13. Stop further sharing of file/document/folder

    As per my understanding when I share the file/document/folder with one user, that specific user can also further share the same file/document/folder with other users. It would be better if we can have this kind of functionality that when shared with any user, there would be an option that would allow user to restrict any further sharing with other users.

  14. change the order of albums

    I like the various sort order options within OneDrive folders (name, date modified, date created, size, custom). At the time of their introduction (Jan 2015), OneDrive albums do not seem to have these options. Please add them.

    The ability to create custom sort orders is particularly important for photo albums (even more than for folders). Frankly, I just use a different platform for sharing photo albums today due to the gaps like this - it's close, but not close enough :(

  15. Access Request Settings on file or folder level

    A User can configure his OneDrive so items cannot be reshared by the recipients of a file / folder or that Access Requests are being sent to an owner if they Arbe being reshared, see https://www.sharepointusecases.com/2014/11/managing-sharing-access-requests-sharepoint-site/

    Unfortunately, this Setting can only be configured for a user's whole OneDrive, even if only a few files need this extra Level of security. Please make it possible to make this Settings for particular files or Folders.

  16. Display items shared with a group in [Shared with Me]

    ■Title(件名):

    Display items shared with a group in [Shared with Me]

    グループで共有設定を行った場合には、[自分と共有] に対象のアイテムが表示されない動作を確認している。
    [自分と共有] に表示させるために各ユーザー毎に共有設定を行うのは、手間と時間がかかり不便に感じます。

    I have confirmed the behavior that when an item was shared by a group, that item will not be show in [Shared with Me].
    To make sure display that file in [Shared with Me], it will take time and effort because it requires us to share the file with each user.

    For improvement of usability and efficiency of work, it will be nice if items could be displayed in [Shared with Me] even though…

  17. OneDrive for Business External Sharing permission set to "Anyone"

    Please allow to set OneDrive for Business External Sharing to "Anyone" without changing SharePoint External Sharing permission.

    Currently, we cannot change OneDrive for Business External Sharing permission to "Anyone" if SharePoint External Sharing permission is set not to share with External organization.

    We want to enable this feature so we can set Expiration Date and Password when sharing files to Anyone thru OneDrive for Business.

  18. Upload-only shared folder

    In the function or ACL in the box, I heard that "Upload only folder" is more popular as a better point than OneDrive.

    Educational institutions have many requests. It is very nice that when the faculty receives the reports from many students, the submitter is upload without reading other's reports.

    Currently in OneDrive for Business, the only sync destination we can specify is the PC-built in hard disk drive. We are not allowed to specify the external hard disks or NAS as the location to sync to.

    In order to improve usability, we hope the feature will be implemented to allow us to specify the external devices as the location to sync to.
