  1. Sync OneDrive Photo Album and Windows Photos App tags / people recognition

    Windows 10 Photos App is great!
    I would need the information / tags / people recognition synced to OneDrive - so the information is not local only and can be shared with other PCs / people as well (and be backed up in cloud)

  2. OneDrive for Business External Sharing permission set to "Anyone"

    Please allow to set OneDrive for Business External Sharing to "Anyone" without changing SharePoint External Sharing permission.

    Currently, we cannot change OneDrive for Business External Sharing permission to "Anyone" if SharePoint External Sharing permission is set not to share with External organization.

    We want to enable this feature so we can set Expiration Date and Password when sharing files to Anyone thru OneDrive for Business.

  4. Direct download links

    As a publishing company using Onedrive, we often send zip files to our clients via Wetransfer because it offers direct download links.

    Ideally we'd like to send our own personalised, branded emails containing direct download links generated from Onedrive.

    We could send out emails with a link to access Onedrive that doesn't require login but find that users are put off by the often unfamiliar screen presented to them via Onedrive to download their files.

  6. Excel links to local drive when opening SharePoint synced file with OneDrive

    When linking an Excel file opening the synced one with OneDrive of a SharePoint online site library, the link is created to the file location in the local drive of the user instead of to the address in SharePoint.

    This makes the links don't work for other users opening that file.

    If you open the file to link directly from the SharePoint site library it is correctly created.

    For SharePoint sites synchronized with OneDrive the links should be created to SharePoint, otherwise this is a limitation for collaborating with SharePoint Online files between users using OneDrive Sync.

  7. Public (without logging in) upload to a shared folder

    Make it possible to create a share forlder with Bill, send the link to him at bill@gates.com and let Bill just click on the link and upload/create files to that folder without signing. Folders could also be password protected so that Bill needs to know that to access the share.

  8. Increase file size limit to allow easier migration from third parties like Box

    We see many customers struggling to migrate from 3rd party services such as Box to OneDrive due to limitations in file size limits in OneDrive.

  9. implement the feature enabling to restrict internal file share

    ■Title(件名):
    内部ユーザー同士の共有を制限したい
    implement the feature enabling to restrict internal file share


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business において、テナント内のユーザー間のファイルの共有を制限したい。社内のユーザー間であっても、安易に共有が行われてしまうことによって漏洩のリスクが高まります。管理者によって制御ができるよう、テナント内のユーザー同士のファイル共有を制限する機能を要望します。

    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.

  12. Mass file deletion notifications Language

    Mass file deletion notifications in OneDrive for Business and SharePoint are currently sent in the Default Language for the Site not the user's own Language. This is confusing for the end user. It's not possible to change the Default Language after a Site is Created. These notifications should be sent in the Default Language for the User's Profile, not the Site Default.

  13. Time bound sharing links on all sharing options not just Anonymous

    With anonymous links IT can set a time limit on when a link expires.

    It would be great to be able to set that via an IT admin policy for a maximum and for users to be able to set an expiry on all types of links.

    For internally shared links I would like to see a notification when the link is about to expire with a reminder to move documents to SharePoint if they need to be retained and shared.

    Also to allow them to extend the share for x amount of days.

    This highlights people keeping everything Onedrive

    To make sure that users sync OneDrive files only on some specific PCs, you can configurate OneDrive to sync only on PCs that are joined to the specific domains by selecting “Allow syncing only on computers joined to specific domains” options from [Sync] in OneDrive Admin center.

  16. See who viewed a shared file

    I shared a file I have stored in OneDrive with a select set of users. I would like the ability to see who has viewed/opened these documents. Right now, i can only see if someone has edited the document.

    It would be great if it could show something like a # views, and would be even better if it gave them an option to rate the file (star ratings).

  17. Notify shared users when files/photos added to shared folder

    Users are notified when a folder is shared with them. But if files/photos are added after the folder has been shared the user is not notified that there is something new to look at.
    A good example is sharing a photo album with family where photos would be added to the album over time.

    Can some option be added to notify shared users when a folder has had new items added to it?

    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.
