  1. 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.

      OneDrive for Business に 15 GB 以上のファイルもアップロードできるようにしてほしい
      (背景)
      ・1ファイル15 GB以上ある大容量の動画ファイルを クラウド上にアップロードしたい。
      ・現在、クラウドへのアップロードの上限が 最大 15 GBとなっているが、動画データの特性上、圧縮を行っても 15 GB 未満へ容量を低減させることが難しい。
      ・1 カットで撮影された動画などの場合、分割し、小分けにしてアップロードすることが現実的ではない。
      ・他の編集ファイルや関連ファイルとのリンクやデータの整合性を保つため、アップロードのために動画データに手を加えることは好ましくない。

      We would like to have the ability to upload over 15 GB size files to OneDrive for Business.

      <Background>
      -We would like to upload large video files over 15 GB to the cloud.
      -Currently uploading limit to the cloud is set to 15 GB. However, it is hard to reduce each video file’s size less than 15 GB even though…

        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.

        Thank…

            I am thinking of sharing the files among the users of OneDrive for Business's tenant.

            At this moment, there is a possibility that the data leak might be caused by a simple share even within company user, and therefore I hope the feature to be available that could enable to make a limit on the file share among the users of a tenant so that an admin could execute the restriction for shared files.

              To confirm the consumed storage size of data which is synched with OneDrive for Business Sync client, there are many places the data to be displayed. For example, we can check the size in Sync folder properties, or on a disk, or in settings in Sync client, etc.

                I hope you to implement the feature that can check the sharing status of item on OneDrive for Business via Explorer, both items shared by me and items shared by other users.

                The sharing settings can be done by sync folders on Explorer so that I hope that the checking sharing status should be able to be completed within the Explorer as well.

                      • Share links dangerously default to view and edit

                        Copied wholesale from another link as it appears to be archived:
                        https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive-archive/suggestions/15445719-share-links-dangerously-default-to-view-and-edit

                        File sharing currently defaults to creating a link with both view AND edit permissions. This link is retained, without any indication to the user, even when the user deselects the allow edit permissions box.

                        This is a VERY dangerous security flaw because some search engines are capable of discovering these links by brute force. I had one of my excel files completely *nuked* by an anonymous rando that had found the view+edit link that I never knew had been created (even though I only ever explicitly shared a…

                            • Allow Syncing of Files Shared with Me

                              I would really like the ability to sync the files that people share with me to Windows Explorer like I can sync the documents that I share with others.

                              It would make accessing them much quicker and I honestly don't understand why it isn't already a feature.

                                When users turn on Files On-Demand and sync their data, for improve the usability we would like to have the feature that allow users to move their data from sync folders to the outside of the device such as file servers

                                Thank you for your considerations.

                                  ブラウザーの変更やキャッシュの削除、時間の経過でモダン UI に戻るも、クラシック UI のドキュメント ライブラリにアクセスした後 共有リンクからアクセスすると、クラシック UI 表示となりモダン UI に切り替えることができない。

                                  We are aware that sometimes OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online Document Library is displayed in the classic UI as we access to those pages via shared links.

                                  We can switch the display back to the modern UI by changing browsers, clearing caches or a certain period of time…

                                    We feel the inconvenience that the URLs to access shared items are too long to tell other users.

                                    In order to improve usability, please implement a feature to shorten those URLs for sharing items on OneDrive for Business.

                                          On the Classic UI, e-mail address is also shown with each user name in the list and we recognize them clearly.

                                          For preventing users choosing the wrong sharing…
