  1. Change 'ownership' of a OneDrive folder in Office365 Home

    I have created a file folder structure for someone else in OneDrive and want to give them ownership of it - but am unable to do so as that is evidently 'not an option' yet I could do that if I was using Google Drive. I am using Office365 Home - seems like this should be a no brainer but have been unable to locate any information re this topic unless I'm an Office Business user, which I'm not. Please allow folder owner transfer in Office365 home.

  2. Ensure multiple people can read documents without synchronization issues

    Referring ticket # 17174503

    "When two or more people are working on a document at the same time, they might make changes that conflict with each other. Conflicts can occur when one person works offline and then saves the document to the server. Conflicts can also occur when two people work on the same part of a document at exactly the same time. When edits conflict, the file would display a notification the next time that a user tries to save the document. The conflicts must be resolved before you can save the document to the cloud.

  3. 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:
    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Add-and-sync-shared-folders-to-OneDrive-8a63cd47-1526-4cd8-bd09-ee3f9bfc1504?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US&fromAR=1

    The feature has been already requested here:
    https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/20317453-bring-to-onedrive-business-option-add-to-my-onedr

  4. 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)

  7. "Request files" is not available

    If I try to use "Request File" that was rolled out in November 2019,
    The message "Anyone links with folder edit" needs to be enabled " is displayed and is not available.

    My organization doesn't currently allow “anyone with tne link".
    Imagine a scene where many members in an organization submit reports to OneDrive.
    In the case of a shared folder, participants can view each other's reports,
    which creates risks such as data tampering and accidentally deleting other people's files,
    which is not good.

    If “Request files” are available in your organization, the problem will be solved.

  8. OneDrive for Business - Implement shared folder syncing to desktop client

    We need the ability to sync folders that have been shared by another Onedrive for a Business user with the desktop client. You just rolled this out for personal OneDrive, but it seems like it's more important for Onedrive for Business

    In the OneDrive sync app, if you want to see files you have shared, you need to create a folder specially for sharing and set the sync settings for each folder, which takes a lot of work.
    Please add a way to see files which are shared within regular OneDrive folders.

    This feature is already available for the personal OneDrive, by signing with a Microsoft account, however, it is not available for OneDrive for Business yet.

  14. 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.

    Since the access permissions are still as they were, it is possible to directly access the item by entering the URL etc., but since this constitutes extra work due to the item not appearing in the Shared with Me list,…

  20. OneDrive Sync to Support Sharepoint Document Management features

    In order for Document Libraries synced from SharePoint to be available for Local Edit, effectively all SharePoint Document Management Library features must be switched off. The ODfB sync client should fully support the Content Approval, Check In/Out, Draft Item Security, Required Columns, Custom Views and Limited Lockdown Permissions features in SharePoint. It currently supports none of these and will make synced documents Read-Only if any of the above settings are used.

    ODfB must support all of these features if it is to be described/considered as a compatible Sync solution.
