  1. OneDrive client for Linux

    Many organisations employ the use of multiple Operating system environments for client facing services whilst also utilising the most out of their Office 365 / Microsoft 365 subscriptions. Unfortunately there are OneDrive sync clients for all but Linux.

    Granted Linux is a broad term, and for me personally I am looking for a native Linux client in the same sense as the MS Teams native Linux client.

  2. Allow Remove photos from Shared Album

    It should be possible to Remove photos from a Shared Album. Shared Albums, with Editable permissions, only allows to Add photos, but not Remove photos from it.
    If I want to create a Shared Album from a folder with a huge amount of photos, to be able to get help from other users on deciding the final list of photos to be printed, whilst not changing the photos on the initial folder, this functionality would be required. It would allow collaboratively work on a Shared Album, without affecting the original set of Photos. A possible approach for this would be…

  3. 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.

    Enable the display of files I have shared within the OneDrive sync app


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive 同期アプリで、共有したファイルを表示させたい場合、共有用のフォルダを作り、フォルダー毎に同期の設定が必要であり手間である。
    通常利用するOneDrive のフォルダーにて共有したファイルも表示できる機能の拡充を希望します。

    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.

    If there are more than 500 items shared, it is not possible to check the total number, so please make it possible to view more than 500 items in the list, and to select all the items.

  6. Excel links to local drive when opening SharePoint synced file with OneDrive

    When linking an Excel file opening the synced one with OneDrive of a SharePoint online site library, the link is created to the file location in the local drive of the user instead of to the address in SharePoint.

    This makes the links don't work for other users opening that file.

    If you open the file to link directly from the SharePoint site library it is correctly created.

    For SharePoint sites synchronized with OneDrive the links should be created to SharePoint, otherwise this is a limitation for collaborating with SharePoint Online files between users using OneDrive Sync.

    アクセス権限はそのままのため、アイテム自体には直接 URL を入力するなどの方法でアクセスできるが、一覧に表示されないと操作上で工数が増えるため、[自分と共有] リストから削除した場合でも復元する機能の拡充を希望します。

    Items which other users have shared with you are shown as a list in “Shared with me”, but if you should delete an item by mistake, there is no way to restore it.
    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,…

  9. One Time Download Link

    This option is already offered by other sharing files options. It is very useful if you want to share a file only with one person so after he downloaded the file the link is not working anymore.

    When creating a site connected to a Microsoft 365 group from [Create shared library] in OneDrive for Business, I'd like users with tenant administrator privileges to be able to select [Public] and [Private] in "Privacy settings" while non-administrators only to select [Private].
    Please make this possible so we can restrict users from freely creating public sites.

  11. 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

  13. Add ability to extend expiration date for shared links

    I always set an expiration date when sharing files/folders (especially anonymously). I tend to set these expiration dates in the near future. It would be nice to be able to extend these as necessary.

  15. No error message showing that the uploaded file in OneDrive is corrupted.

    When we tried to download the uploaded files in OneDrive and used the File Compare, we found out that the files from OneDrive are corrupted. There is no error message or sign that they are corrupted. It is more better to have an error message or warning that the uploaded file is corrupted than downloading it before realizing that it has a problem.

    ■Description(内容):
    現時点の動作として、ブラウザーで OneDrive for Business にアクセスした場合は、ファイルおよびフォルダーの共有時に 2 バイト文字で共有先ユーザー検索を行うことが可能である。
    しかし、OneDrive 同期クライアントでは、ブラウザー版 OneDrive for Business のように 2 バイト文字で共有先ユーザー検索を行うことができず、ユーザーのアドレスを指定する必要がある。
    OneDrive 同期クライアントの利用者が多く、この動作では不便であるため、OneDrive 同期クライアントの共有時にも 2 バイト文字で共有先ユーザー検索が行えるよう、機能の拡充を希望します。

    Under the present behavior, if you are accessing OneDrive for Business via a browser, when you share a file or folder, it is not possible to search for users to share with by using 2-byte characters.
    In the OneDrive sync client, just like in the browser version it is not possible to search for users…

  18. Issue where users cannot share with invited guest users from the sync client

    There are confirmed issues where sometimes if a user invites an external user as a guest user via the browser, and then attempts to share with that user, now registered as a guest user, using the sync client, the error “Exact match not found” is shown and they cannot share.
    Even though there are workarounds, it is necessary to check guest user accounts on the admin side, and share via the browser, which is not appropriate for an…
