  1. Subscribe on Photo Albums, notify subscribers on new photos, videos

    I want to share an Album (not a folder!) with my daughters, where I put short videos from there sport trainings, so they could view and analyze them.

    I want they be notified (in application) each time I add an item (video) to that Album.

    And yes, I want new videos be on top, not the bottom of the album.

  2. Control edits

    I want people that I share a document with to have to get my permission as owner of the document before any changes are made to that document. They could edit but the suggested changes don’t get made unless I approve them. This is how google allows collaboration but the owner still had control. Thanks

  6. Enable recipients to allow sharing of files

    When sharing files with specific users, allow those users to share the file with others (similar to sharing option for PowerBI Dashboards).

  8. One Time Download Link

    This option is already offered by other sharing files options. It is very useful if you want to share a file only with one person so after he downloaded the file the link is not working anymore.

  11. Allow sharing of OneDrive for Business between organizations.

    I have a url for a publicly shared OneDrive and need to download the files on a regular schedule. The Folders on the other OneDrive for Business are all in folders that contain zip files and there is no login so I can't join or share it with my OneDrive for Business.

  12. Password Protection For Shared OneDrive objects should extend to Windows File Explorer.

    Password Protected Objects in OneDrive should have protection extended to when that object is viewed in Windows File Explorer. Presently, as of 11/14/2019, it is the design of OneDrive to allow Password Protection on Shared folders. As long as the shared & protected object is viewed in a browser then a password prompt secures the object. However, if that object is Added To My OneDrive (aka viewable within Windows 10 File Explorer) then the password prompt goes away while access to the content remains. This is a security flaw in my opinion and not a feature. Microsoft support confirmed that…

  13. OneDrive space for a company or group should be able to be combined

    OneDrive space of a member of a group is limited to 1 TB. The enterprise admin should be given the opportunity to combine these spaces to a larger volume, where a shared and well-organized library can be placed, instead of users sharing different items located in own OneDrive spaces and then also allocate smaller spaces then 1 TB to users.

  14. Adding a text editor / code editor

    Mew feature request:

    Adding a text editor for creating and editing text files will be great.
    This will allow working with source code files such c++, html, javascript, and working with many simple text files used by many apps.

    Would be great for collaborating with coworkers.

    This feature should be added in web version as well as in desktop and mobile versions.

  15. File Limit Makes OneDrive and SharePoint Worthless

    We are currently using Google Drive and DropBox to share files on our devices. We have Office 365, so we thought we would try OneDrive, but the two reasons it will never work are:


    1. File/Folder Limits are too low

    2. SharePoint integration

    Google Drive is so much easier to setup, you don't have to deal with something complex like SharePoint for something so simple, and you aren't handcuffed by file/folder limitations.

    As it currently stands, OneDrive is worse than worthless - we wasted our time even trying it out.

    It also seems the sync client is not nearly as good as…

  17. Display the error message instead of the message “Loading OneDrive accounts” when clicking [Share] button

    Display the error message instead of the message “Loading OneDrive accounts” when clicking [Share] button


    ■Description(内容):
    Office 2016 を利用する際に、OneDrive for Business を利用していないにも関わらず、[ファイル] - [共有] より [サインイン] をクリックした場合に "OneDrive アカウントを読み込んでいます" と表示され続けます。
    本動作はエンドユーザーにとって混乱を招く動作であり、情報が漏洩する不安を与える動作となります。
    実際に OneDrive for Business にアクセスができないとしても、セキュリティが確保されていることが確認できず、ユーザーによってはデータが転送されていると認識してしまい、管理者に問い合わせがあり業務がひっ迫します。
    本機能によって接続ができない場合はエラーがでるように改善、もしくは管理者側で非表示とできる機能の提供を強く要望いたします。

    When using Office 2016, if a user clicked [File]-[Share]-[Sign-in], the message “Loading OneDrive accounts” keep displaying on the screen even though the user does not use his/her OneDrive for Business. This behavior might confuse the users and give them anxiety about information leakage.
    Even though there is no capability to access…

  18. Enable One drive to sync to private cloud/NAS/File Share

    Some techies out there create their own home environments for training and prepping for exams, or just for shiggles and gits. It would be nice to extend the One Drive feature to sync to multiple places without having to allways go to the MS Cloud. Example, I have a file share that I want to keep a bunch of files synced with but want them on the local computer to travel with. Could we not setup a host on the FS and have the OneDrive client be on our laptops. Then whenever we connect to home net or VPN back…

  20. Allow access to shared folders without Microsoft account

    This is quite different from existing idea of allowing non Microsoft users to upload to and modify guilds in a shared folders.
    I just want to be able to share folder with someone without Microsoft account.
    So that he/she will not have to create any accounts.
