  1. If external link sharing not enabled, simplify sending an email to external/internal

    External link sharing is turned off for tenant. To send email to external and internal, only way is to attach file - plus the error message user receives does not explain why email failed. Prefer - user share file. If external (and blocked at tenant level), attach file. If internal sent in same email - send link not attachment.

    If user wishes to attach to all, user needs to take steps.

  3. Transfer ownership (not access nor permissions) of shared folders

    Effectively and quickly transfer folders and files ownership to another active account to avoid copying files and changing active links already shared with many users.

  4. multiple

    Allow adding multiple email addresses at once when sharing

    It's really a pain to have to manually add each email address you wish to share to one by one. You cannot even add one and then go to another window to copy a new address - as soon as the OneDrive share pop-up lose focus all addresses you've added so far are lost.

  7. STORAGE SHARING for All of my Outlook accounts

    I recently upgraded my Outlook storage on main account to 2TB. Why can't this storage be shared with my "family" of other Outlook accounts---similar to Google One? I'm surprised that Microsoft extends this tremendous inconvenience to its users. Granted, MSFT wants to make money but the trade-off of creating inventive services to its users in sharing storage data to enjoy other MSFT apps would be compelling. Why must I purchase individual storage plans for all of my Outlook accounts which I use for various purposes? Please....be inventive and stay ahead of the curve on improving the online lives of your…

  8. Allow in-bulk or per-folder uploading of files with OneDrive App

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive アプリのアップロードを一括、フォルダー単位で選択できるようにして欲しい
    Allow in-bulk or per-folder uploading of files with OneDrive App


    ■Description(内容):
    ​​現時点での OneDrive アプリでは、ファイルをアップロードする際に1つ1つをタップして選択する必要があり、複数のファイルをまとめてアップロードしたい場合に非常に手間がかかる。
    フォルダー単位や、スライドなどで一括で選択しアップロードできる機能の追加を希望します。

    Currently we need to click on files one by one to upload them with OneDrive App. It takes a lot of time when we deal with many files. Please add an option to select them by folder or all files using a slider etc.

  9. Suggestion: Add "Personal Vault" feature to OneDrive for Business

    I appreciate that OneDrive for Business leverages overall Office 365 security features. That said, does the roadmap for OneDrive for Business include the introduction of the "Personal Vault" feature available in OneDrive Personal?

  10. Suggestion: Fix "link breaks" issue when file/folder is renamed or moved

    ISSUE: re. shared links. When the document gets renamed or moved to a different folder, the link "breaks" and no longer works for those whom we've shared it with.

    SUGGESTION: If folder or docs each had their own unique object identifier, and links were associated with the unique object identifier (as opposed to the file name or folder name), links would never break. :-)

  12. I want to change the name attached to sync client shared folders

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    同期クライアントの共有フォルダの名称の変更を行いたい
    I want to change the name attached to sync client shared folders


    ■Description(内容):
    共有を受けたフォルダに共有元ユーザー名が表示されるが、共有元ユーザーが退職者であるため、現時点の機能では退職済みのユーザーのファイル名を変更できなく困っている。
    任意で、共有元ユーザー名を非表示にする設定や変更を行えるような機能の実装を希望いたします。

    The username of the person who shared a folder is shown to those they share it with, but in cases where that person has left the company, there is currently no way to change the names of files that belonged to them.
    Please make it possible to arbitrarily hide the usernames of users who have shared files.

  14. Don't delete folders on my PC

    If I decide not to sync a folder anymore to OneDrive that folder is deleted from my PC. I would rather not! Or, when OneDrive starts to sync initially, I would like to have an opportunity to choose which folder not to sync.

  16. En plus de permettre la modification d'un fichier partagé, insérer une fonction qui permet (interdit) de télécharger le fichier.

    Pour les fichiers que je partage avec mes proches. Ainsi, si je désire protéger mes photos du copiage, seulement la visualisation est alors accessible. Même chose pour ma musique. Je pourrais partager une nouvelle oeuvre de musique pour la faire connaître sans risquer qu'elle soit copiée de façon illégale.

  18. Privacy, security and ease of access

    They could create an access to the personal safe directly on the desktop, as a shortcut on the desktop, which asks for the password or authentication and enter the safe. It would make it easier to use.

    I had an external hard drive and a shortcut on the desktop that with password accessed the hard drive for privacy in case of theft for example. As I changed everything to the one drive this would also facilitate and protect the most private data

  20. Public upload similar to dropbox

    Please allow for designating a public folder with a size restriction for public uploading from others without requiring sign-in. This would help tremendously in client file transfers.
