  1. restore process for backups

    firstly, when turning on backups, they don't back up to the same folder that the onedrive sync is so my users now have to look in 2 different places. Also, there is not a clear cut way to restore backed up files to a new computer. In fact, on the new computer if you sign into onedrive and go to the backups tab, it doesn't see that there are backups from another computer and only prompts you to begin new backups which I haven't yet tested to see if doing that overwrites your previous backups which would be completely absurd.

  2. Allow shared folders or your own folders to actually appear on your computer and sync when whichever one changes

    Having a folder on your computer desktop or wherever you put it as well as the one drive older. Whenever you make any change to your OneDrive folder or your folder in you computer,, the other one will sync automatically. Great for working on other devices.

  3. OneDrive verification code emails

    When sharing files or folders in OneDrive for Business with users who are outside our organization, several users report to us that they do not receive the verification code email after clicking the 'Open' button in the first email they received.

    It would be nice if we could either retrieve the verification code for them or at least be able to confirm that the verification email was sent by message trace or audit log entry.

  4. 希望onedrive增加”增量同步“的功能。就是当用户在修改任意文件时,OneDrive会通过智能分析,找出当前的文件和上一个版本之间修改的部分,在同步时只上传修改两个版本的差异部分,从而大大加快文件的同步速度、降低流量的消耗,提高同步效率。

    Machine Translation:Hope that onedrive will increase the "incremental synchronization" function. That is, when the user is modifying any file, OneDrive will use intelligent analysis to find out the modified part between the current file and the previous version, and only upload and modify the difference between the two versions during synchronization, thus greatly speeding up the synchronization of the file , Reduce traffic consumption and improve synchronization efficiency.

  5. Remove geo-location information from photos when sharing

    Have an option to remove personal meta data from photos in a folder. This would be useful for privacy when sharing photos with a public link.
    Currently all photos taken from a smartphone will by default include very accurate location information (which is fine for my own private photos) but when sharing them I want to be able to easily remove all that information.

  6. Major Security Hole in O365 / OneDrive

    THE ISSUE:

    We have discovered what represents a Major Security Hole in O365 / OneDrive, where the domain group "Everyone except external users” is being granted Read permissions for new objects and child objects, a default process that can not be altered.

    The Steps to produce the scenario are as follows:


    1. From a user's OneDrive Go to Site Settings

    2. Under Site Administration, click on Site Libraries & Lists

    3. Create a new Object (Library, List, App or Sub-site)

    Permissions set for newly created objects (and their items) are:
    a. Owner of the site has Full or “Owner” rights
    b. Everyone except

  7. Add domain restrictions only to Onedrive for business in the tenant without affected Sharepoint settings.

    Currently, external sharing of OneDrive for Business are addicted to Sharepoint Settings. But we want to set domainblacklist to external sharing of Sharepoint and set domain whitelist to external sharing of OneDrive for Business.

  8. Allow Shared Folders with no edit permission to be moved to My Files.

    This feature would allow someone to push out templates or consistent presentations to a group and the group couldn't edit or ***** something up.

  10. AutoCAD: Merging Changes from multiple users

    Currently, we can solve about xref path in OneDrive but we found another problem.

    When multiple users open a same file and edit, those changes cannot be merged on the original file. Changes are made to the first user who open it only. This waste time for rework or manually merging the changes.

    As the merging function is not available now, there should be notification to show that there is other people using on the same file and show the file as read-only. So, we do not waste time to work on it or can notice those persons to close…

  11. default share dialog on OD4B doesn't allow entering "everyone except external users"

    When you click on share in OD4B, the dialog only allows getting links that work for everyone in the organization. But it doesn't allow you to enter "everyone except external users" when you want to share with everyone in teh company. The problem is that sometimes you want to change the permissions on the document so that everyone in the organization has access to it, but you don't want to send an email. There is currently no way to do that through the default share dialog.

    you can do that through the details pane which allows you to enter "everyone…

  12. Allow "Shared" folders to display in 3rd Party Web App Integrations

    In the standard OneDrive web interface you, of course, can see "Shared" files. However, when using the integration provided by 3rd party web apps, "Shared" folders are not visible. See attached files. Not having "Shared" file access is a huge hindrance to collaboration and should be available, especially since "Shared Libraries" are.

  13. Differentiate sharing rights by groupmembership

    Within our company we would like to have some users to be able to share documents with people outside the company, but other users should only be able to share internally.

    It would be great if this could be assigned by groupmembership. Now this has to be done with scripting and as we all know this has disadvantages when failing.

    This is already possible with the regions, why not make this possible within a region and groups.

  14. Acceso a todos tus archivos de la nube desde la PC pero sin descargarlos localmente

    Debería haber una opción que permita ver todos los archivos y carpetas de OneDrive en la carpeta de la PC sin necesidad de que estén descargados en la PC, seria algo como un acceso directo, por así decirlo, y que solo se descarguen temporalmente si se requiere abrir el archivo. Seria una forma de trabajar con los discos sólidos de poca capacidad, de esta forma no se mantienen sino en un buffer temporal ciertos archivos consultados en el momento. Actualmente conocemos que existe una única opción que es evitar que se descarguen carpetas o archivos de nuestro OneDrive a la…

  16. Create share link from desktop

    When you click on "Share" in Windows, the system opens a browser window to create a share link. That's mad. Why can't it be done natively in Windows?

    リンク共有を行った際には外部ユーザーはゲスト ユーザーに登録されたるため、初回のみコード要求が行われるが、セキュリティ の観点からリンク共有元から毎回コードを求められるように設定する機能実装を要望します。

    When sharing a file using a link, since external users are registered as guest users, they have to enter a code the first time they access it. However, from a security perspective, we would like for the user doing the sharing to be able to set it to require a code every time it is accessed.

  19. External Sharing without an Exchange Account

    Enable sharing with external users without requiring having an Exchange account.

    I can apparently share a file or folder with an external user, but they must be able to receive email at an Exchange address. When sharing is attempted there is no notice that sharing won't happen unless they have an Exchange account, it just doesn't happen.

  20. Improve checkin/checkout for OneDrive for Business/Sharepoint scenarios

    I have a sharepoint folder that is sync'd to my local machine via OneDrive for Business. In Sharepoint we have set it for version control and checkout required to edit. However, even though these are Office (O365) documents and we're using Windows ... I can't request checkin/checkout from the local instance (either a OneDrive explorer integration menu, or an O365 application menu option) so the only way to check in/out is via the extra set of going to the website
    As these documents are powerpoints with active macros which need both changes to macros and slides on a regular basis,…
