    Hide the sharing information of items from external users.


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business 上のアイテムを外部ユーザーに共有すると、共有先の外部ユーザーから共有情報 (他の誰に共有されているか) が見えてしまう。
    共有情報を非表示にする機能を追加してほしい。

    When sharing items on OneDrive for Business with external users, they can see the sharing information (of other users who are shared the items) which we don’t want them to.

    他のユーザーの OneDrive for Business に Office ファイルを名前を付けて保存する機能について

    Allow saving Office files on another user’s OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):
    Office アプリで編集したファイルを名前を付けて保存する際に、自分以外のユーザーの OneDrive for Business を指定することができない。
    他のユーザーから共有されている OneDrive for Business 上の Office ファイルを、名前を変更して保存する際にも保存先として選択できないため、共有ユーザーの OneDrive for Business 上にファイルを保存できるようにしてほしい。

    When I name and save the files edited by Office apps, it is not possible to specify other users’ OneDrive for Business as the saving destination.
    I feel the inconvenience because I cannot specify the other user’s OneDrive for Business as the saving destination when I want to rename and save the files which shared by other users.

    Therefore, I hope…

  3. Predefined Periodic Activation of OneDrive Link

    It is good that you have included expiry date for the shared link as premium feature. it will be more useful if the link get activated for a predefined specific period of the time. for example, first 10 days of every month.

  4. 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).

  5. Autoreply or Sunset Announcement on OneDrive

    When an employee leaves a company, oftentimes the employee, manager, or IT department will add an "autoreply" on the person's email box. This will notify anyone sending messages to that mailbox of the situation. With OneDrive, it would be nice to have some similar functionality such as a banner across the top of the page that could be implemented easily by employee, manager or IT staff. Example: "Sorry, so-and-so is no longer with the company, please contact XYZ, and be aware that this OneDrive will be deleted in X days."

    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…

  7. Auto collect photos from shared album

    I have O365 and use OneDrive to store and share photos with friends also have O365. It is very painful to download the photos from my friend's OneDrive and upload them to my own OneDrive. Can we have a auto collect photo feature. Instead of downloading, one can auto collect photos or album from friend's shared albums. Thx!

  8. I'm sure this has been suggested many times, but i'll just add my voice to the chorus

    I'm sure this has been suggested many times, but i'll just add my voice to the chorus anyway. We'd like to see a "no share" option with OneDrive. Keep all the existing sharing features, but add a simple storage-only option. Most people don't need to share (at least at our company), but do need the cloud storage (it makes replacing PC's A LOT easier). Any chance we'll see this in the near future? Thanks.

  11. 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…

  12. OneDrive Share Feature

    For each single option of Share for a file or folder, adding:
    - Expiry date (actually on Anyone only)
    - Allow Editing (actually on Anyone/People in org/Specific People)
    - One Time Password (actually on Specific People only)
    - Allow link forward (non-existent on any options)

    Those above would give more control on the share facility
    Thanks

  13. A OneDrive folder you can not share files from

    We would like to shed my on premise file storage and have all our users use OneDrive for Business. We would like to have a folder created in everyone's OneDrive that they can not accidentally share files from consider it a "safe' folder. The user would have to deliberately move the document out of the "Safe" folder to another area or folder before they could share it .

    This "Safe" folder would be added protection to prevent theaccidental/unintentional sharing trade secrets, personal information, etc...

    社内で Office Online を利用したいため、Office ProPlus を契約しているが、OneDrive for Business のクラウド領域は利用させたくないと考えている。

  17. Hi, please make the Excel sheets on OneDrive less laggy. I feel like I'm on dial up sometimes when I try to open, save, or cross-reference

    Should be a way for the sheets to locally reference each other while on the drive rather than having to save local copies and then figure out referenceable work arounds...it crashes my excel when I try to do even simple cross-references because it's on my computer, going into the cloud to reference and then pulling that information back down from the cloud; I've had entire workbooks corrupted and hours of work lost because of this short-sighted "solution."

  19. Read only access at folder and file level -useful for accessing archived data

    This is traditional database access idea so users or customers can view documents but can't ***** with carefully curated data on OneDrive - so no edits, updates, deletes

  20. Allow files to be uploaded from other websites directly with the link

    I would like to upload some files from other Cloud storages to one drive directly. Not by downloading to my pc and then again uploading.
    Instead allow files to be uploaded to my drive through a link from other cloud storages
