    グループで共有設定を行った場合には、[自分と共有] に対象のアイテムが表示されない動作を確認している。

    I have confirmed the behavior that when an item was shared by a group, that item will not be show in [Shared with Me].
    To make sure display that file in [Shared with Me], it will take time and effort because it requires us to share the file with each user.

    For improvement of usability and efficiency of work, it will be nice if items could be displayed in [Shared with Me] even though…

      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.

      • 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.

              • Share links dangerously default to view and edit

                Copied wholesale from another link as it appears to be archived:

                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…

                  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)

                              Display file extension in OneDrive app

                              Web版では表示されていることから、同じサービスで見え方が異なるのは統一感がない
                              そのため、OneDrive アプリでも拡張子を表示する、または表示非表示を切り替える機能が欲しい

                              File extension can be displayed in OneDrive for Business on the web, however, it is not displayed in OneDrive for Business app. Since both OneDrive for Business on the web and app are the same service, they should be more unified.

                              Therefore, it will be great if you could provide the feature that can display file extensions or switch display/hide them in OneDrive for Business app.

                              Thank you for your consideration.

                                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.

                                        現在の用途として会社のファイルをOneDrive for Businessを使用しての共有をしている。
                                        多数のユーザーがおり同一ファイルを誰が置き換えることが頻繁にあります。
                                        その際置き換える前のファイルを保存しているユーザー、置き換えた後の正しいファイルを保存しているユーザーの2通りがいるという状況になるため
                                        ファイルの置き換え自体を禁止できる機能を希望しています。
                                        現在は監査ログにて上記内容を管理していますが、上述の機能を拡張いただけると大きく作業効率の向上が見込めるため機能の拡張を希望致します。

                                        We would like to see the feature to restrict file replacement in OneDrive for Business.

                                        Multiple users are using our organization’s OneDrive for Business to share our files, and file replacement for one item by some uses is happened frequently, eventually multiple users have different version (latest and previous) for one file.

                                        We trace the latest file (and owner) with using audit log, but our work will be more productive if we are able to on/off file replacement feature.

                                        Thank…

                                        • Transfer Ownership of Someone's OneDrive without losing current Shared Permissions

                                          We have a user who left and I would like to transfer their files to their replacement. I can do that but if I do the current shared permissions that are set on those files will be lost. there should be a way for this to happen without losing those permissions.
