  1. File Limit Makes OneDrive and SharePoint Worthless

    We are currently using Google Drive and DropBox to share files on our devices. We have Office 365, so we thought we would try OneDrive, but the two reasons it will never work are:


    1. File/Folder Limits are too low

    2. SharePoint integration

    Google Drive is so much easier to setup, you don't have to deal with something complex like SharePoint for something so simple, and you aren't handcuffed by file/folder limitations.

    As it currently stands, OneDrive is worse than worthless - we wasted our time even trying it out.

    It also seems the sync client is not nearly as good as…

  3. OneDrive is not compatible with Office365 if Sharepoint not hosted at Microsoft and latest version

    OneDrive is not copatible with Office365 when the Sharepoint is not latests version and not hosted at Microsoft.
    This is critical for a decision to pass to Office 365, or to abbandon OneDrive/SharePoint

  4. Bring back the sorting option for last modified date in OneDrive shared documents.

    The sort feature for "last modified date" for shared documents in OneDrive was removed with a recent update. This was a helpful feature and should be brought back.

  5. Display the error message instead of the message “Loading OneDrive accounts” when clicking [Share] button

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Business を利用していない場合にも、[共有] ボタンを押すと "OneDrive アカウントを読み込んでいます" と表示される。

    Display the error message instead of the message “Loading OneDrive accounts” when clicking [Share] button


    ■Description(内容):
    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…

  6. View Only Option for Shared Excel Spreadsheets

    The ability to embed excel spreadsheets on a website/blog and update them BUT only allow others to VIEW them (not copy/paste with source formatting, edit, download or be able to click a link to the source file data) is an essential option to have in both the Personal and Business OneDrive accounts.

    While the ability to share and collaborate on files/data is excellent in OneDrive, there are many occasions when 'share to view only' is the desired option and it should be available.

    At the moment the only way to do it is export the file to Google Sheets as…

  7. Clock based uploading, I only want to upload at night when I am asleep.

    My internet is not super fast, and anytime one drive is synching it kills the entire connection in my house. It sucks.

    So I pause it the entire day and when I'm doing stuff at night so I can use my network. I want to be able to set HOURS that I can have it upload, like midnight to 7am, or something like that.

  9. Have a Check-In/Check out System for CAD files, downloading files to a user's drive and locking it in Sharepoint until re-uploaded.

    This will allow for smoother remote work for the Engineering industry and all those who use CAD software. Also, maybe having the ability to check-out an entire folder as some CAD software has multiple files required in collaboration. Many companies, including my own, use custom AutoCAD user-interface and scripts in order to streamline tasks, so AutoCAD web does not work for us.

  12. Manager / supervisor

    It might be a good idea to have a person that is marked as a manager whom gets notifications when the files are updated. Then he or she can assess the workmanship of work done without calling or to go check if work was done.

  15. About notifications delivered when sharing a link with an external user, and that user opens it

    ■Title(件名):
    外部ユーザーにリンクを共有し、共有先のユーザーが開いた場合に届く通知について
    About notifications delivered when sharing a link with an external user, and that user opens it


    ■Description(内容):
    “送信した共有メール内のリンクがクリックされたときにメールで通知する” 機能が有効になっていると、リンクを外部ユーザーに共有し開かれた際に共有元に通知が届くが、共有時に複数の外部ユーザーに一括でリンクをメールで共有すると、本機能が動作しない。
    1 ユーザーずつ共有をすると本機能が動作するが、共有相手が多いと非常に手間がかかり、本通知機能が動作しないと、共有相手にリンクが正常に届いているかも不安になるため、複数ユーザーに一括で共有を実施した場合も、リンクが使用された旨の通知が共有元のユーザーに届くよう、機能の拡充を希望します。

    If the “Email notification when the link in a sharing email you sent was clicked” function is enabled, a notification is delivered when the link shared with an external user is opened, but this does not function if it is shared by mail with several users at once.
    If you share with users one-at-a-time, it works, but for sharing with many users this takes time, and if this function doesn’t work, then you can’t…

  16. One Drive pour Autocad est problématique si plusieurs usager des documents.

    One Drive pour Autocad est problématique si plusieurs usagers des documents sur OneDrive.
    Nous ne sommes pas avisé si une personne utilise déjà un fichier, mais les informations d'une seule personne sont conservées.

  17. Allow us to restrict syncing document libraries per users

    *English follows Japanese

    Allow us to restrict syncing document libraries per users


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint Online のドキュメント ライブラリの [同期] ボタンを非表示にし、同期を制限したい。
    現在の機能ではサイト単位もしくはドキュメント ライブラリ単位で制限することが可能だが、ユーザー単位での同期の制限ができない。
    ドキュメント ライブラリの同期を、社内で承認したユーザーにのみ許可したいため、ユーザー単位での同期を制限する機能の実装を要望します。

    I would like to see the feature to hide [sync] button to restrict syncing document libraries at SharePoint Online. It is able to restrict on each site or library, but not on each user.
    We need to allow only specific users to sync document libraries in our organization, so it would be great if we have the feature to restrict syncing based on users.

    Allow the sync directory to be changed for individual folders on OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):
    現在の機能として、OneDrive for Business はアカウント単位での同期が基本となっているため、同期場所の変更はアカウント単位で行う必要があります。OneDrive for Business に保存しているフォルダーごとに、同期場所の変更ができないため、フォルダー単位で同期場所の変更ができるような機能の実装を要望します。

    Currently, syncing is based on individual accounts, and therefore the sync directory can only be changed on a per-account level. Since it is not possible to specify a different sync directory for different folders saved on OneDrive for Business, we would ask that you make this possible.

  20. Send rather than share
