  1. Sharing Notifications and more!

    The overdrive app literally does not need access to “allow notifications.” There’s never a notification popping up as a banner or Lock Screen at all. Nothing for sharing, or when someone opens a file you shared with them, none of that. You need both push and email notifications. ALSO, add notifications if someone edits a pdf that you shared with them!

  2. when unsyncing from one drive, give the person the choice whether to delete from computer or one drive

    currently laptops are set up automatically syncing whether we like it or not, and whether we know/understand or not. Then when you select files/folders you dont want to sync, it automatically deletes them from the pc/laptop, keeping them on the cloud, instead of giving customers the choice where to keep them. I would like to un-sync and leave the files on my laptop.

    Also, this option needs to be an separate opt in checkbox - not forcing anyone who wishes to take the time to provide feedback with being spammed as a result "and to notify me about product updates"

  4. filter shared by

    It is great that we now can list all files that I have shared, or someone has shared with me. We can sort and group that list by file name, date and who shared it.

    What I suggest is that we also could sort/filter this list by location, i.e. the URL or site name.

  5. Replace documents such as PDF with a new version but keep the same shared links

    The ability to be able to replace any document with an updated version without having to replace previosuly shared links should be way at the top of the priority list. Google Drive has provided this functionality for years and I'm absolutely astounded that this isn't supported by OneDrive. Time to step into the 21st Centruy Microsoft!!

  6. Be able to show folders that are not being synced on my pc or device.

    Be able to show folders that are not being synced on my pc or device.
    So we know that perhaps something is missing in a sync.

    Correct the behavior when editing the same file with multiple users in off-line environment.


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business 同期クライアントを利用して、Excel 2016 で共同編集をしている。
    この時、共同編集中の複数のユーザーがオフライン環境で編集した内容がオンラインに切り替わった際にファイルに上書き保存されるが、後からオンラインになったユーザーの変更内容が上書き保存されてしまう。
    同一のセルを編集していた場合にも "マージされませんでした" といった競合に関するエラーが表示されず、そのまま上書きされてしまう。
    他の変更内容を上書きしないよう、共同編集時にもエラーが表示されるようにしてほしい。

    Currently, we perform co-authoring in Excel 2016 by using OneDrive for Business sync client.
    At this time, when contents edited in an offline environment by multiple users under co-authoring are switched to online, they are overwritten and saved in the file. However, the problem we recognize is that the edited contents of the user who became online later will always overwrite the file. It will be overwritten without any…

  12. Allow synchronizing folders on different devices

    Link a folder on your desktop to a folder within OneDrive using 'mklink /j'
    So any changes within the folder on your HDD is synced with the OneDrive folder.

    Now, I would like to have a folder on my laptop HDD synced with the OneDrive folder, so whatever I change on either device, it will be synced to the other thru OneDrive.

    Probably not (yet) possible. That's to say, I haven't found a way to get this done.

  13. Include 'Shared With Me' folder in Office Apps 'Open' file menu.

    When using the 'Open' feature of the file menu in all Office apps it would be very useful to be able to see the 'Shared With Me' folder as well as my personal OneDrive for Business 'Files' folder.

  15. OneDrive Personal Shared Folder Email Digest Summary

    SUB-FOLDERS and FILES added by OTHER USERS in a FOLDER THAT I SHARED does not reflect in the notification email - only changes to existing files reflects in the summary.

    Even though other users owner of the files - I am still the owner of the folder - and this qualifies as changes to this folder surely.

    If anyone has a workaround in the interim then please inform - support says feature not supported.

    ANOTHER ISSUE:

    the subject of email says "... and 10 others edited your shared files"

    the number appears to be the number of edits - not…

  19. outlook

    I have several customers who have asked to be able to set an expiration date on a cloud attachment when sending through Outlook. Currently, a sharing expiration date can only be set from OneDrive on the web or OneDrive on Windows.
