    • 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?

          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…

          • Sharing between OneDrive for Business and OneDrive Personal

            As a person responsible for documents I want to share documents and colaborate with my business partners who have OneDrive Personal.
            As a teacher I want to share folder with my students to have up-to-date documents from all of them.

            One should be able to share a file from a OneDrive for Business Account to a OneDrive Personal Account in a way which is described here:

            The feature has been already requested here:

                    • 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.

                            • Office/Onedrive path length limit problems

                              Path length limit in OneDrive (business) in filesystem does not match the limits in Office in collaboration mode

                              When working on OneDrive for business in Office (Word in the example), you sometimes cannot save a file right next to an existing file, using the same number of characters (when path length is long). The reason seems to be that is that path length check does not take URL expansions into account (spaces in path becomes %20 and then count as three chars).

                              See examples here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_word-mso_win10-mso_o365b/use-onedrive-for-business-as-ordinary-filesystem/e5ca4e00-eec8-4a60-9cef-37e82be5fe46

                              I ended up disabling collaboration features, forcing Word to use Windows file API instead…

                              • 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

                                  OneDrive の同期クライアントの更新は定期的にランダムに行われるため、現時点では更新を遅らせる情報のみしかない。
                                  そのため、OneDrive の同期クライアントが自動的に更新されないように管理する機能の実装をお願いします。
                                  また、事前に OneDrive 同期クライアント最新版の更新がある場合には更新するタイミングを把握できる情報の公開をお願いします。

                                  We would like to know the OneDrive sync client update timing beforehand.
                                  We recognize that the network might be overloaded if the updates OneDrive sync client were performed all at once within the tenant.
                                  The update for OneDrive sync client is performed randomly, however, currently we only have the information to delay updating it.

                                  Therefore, we hope you…

                                    OneDrive for Business 上のごみ箱の保存期間については既定で定められており、変更を行うことができない。そのため、ごみ箱に追加されたアイテムが削除されるまでの期間を、任意で変更できるよう機能の追加を要望します。​​

                                    We feel inconvenient that the retention period of the Recycle Bin on OneDrive for Business is set by default so that there is no way to modify the value of period.

                                    Therefore, we hope the feature to be added that allows the user to freely change the value of period that the items added to the Recycle Bin are deleted.

                                    Thank you for your continued support.

                                      We are sharing an Excel file synced with OneDrive for Business sync client with multiple users. As we launch Excel, the errors such as “Upload blocked”, “Unable to merge” and “This file is opening as read-only from the server” are displayed at the top of the file unexpectedly.

                                      Although it can be avoided by disabling AutoSave feature, we hope you…
