  1. 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.

  3. Prevent re-sharing by non-owners from a tenant-level

    By default anyone who a file is shared with in OneDrive has the ability to re-share that file with additional users. This setting can be disabled on a site-per-site basis via Set-SPOSite with DisableSharingForNonOwners.
    It would be very useful to have this setting on a tenant-level (via admin center), as today using the above cmdlet means we need to re-run this for every new OneDrive site that is provisioned, and to make sure users don't reset this flag.

  4. Provide the ability to synchronise from PC's on local LAN before traversing to internet

    If I have a PC that has all the OneDrive content synced (especially Documents and Pictures), and I want to have the same files available (with or without taking space on that PC), to another PC(s) the sync should occur through my local LAN, not over the internet connection. This will save Megabytes or Gigabytes of WAN traffic, thus decreasing the time required to sync, plus also make files available to devices that may normally need to sync through a metered connection.

  5. Prevent save location of shared files from being changed by shared users

    Prevent save location of shared files from being changed by shared users


    ■Description(内容):
    現在の機能は OneDrive for Business のファイルを共有すると、共有先ユーザーにて、一旦ファイルをダウンロードして再度該当ファイルをアップロードすることにより別のフォルダーへの格納が可能となってしまうため、共有したファイルの保管元のフォルダーを変更できないようにする機能を追加してほしい。​
    When OneDrive for Business files are shared, if the shared user downloads the file and tries to upload the same file, it becomes possible for the user to save the file in some other folder. We hope a feature will be added to prevent the save location of the shared file from being changed.

  6. sync seems to take forever - be nice if you could see some kind of status/ priority of the files in sync and then manipulate them

    thats it... view and be able to decide the priority of syncing files to enable more efficient working.

  8. Share with 'allow reshare' with permissions capability

    Reshare with permissions ability or delegate sharing ability.

    Currently when I share a file with a permission level e.g. read I would like to be able to specify whether the recipient can further share with the same permission level (or less) without having to get approval from the document owner.
    This would be the same for a file being shared with edit permission with a specific recipient. That recipient should then be able to reshare the document to further recipients with the ability to specify either edit permission or less with read-only permission. The recipient should not be able to…

  10. Give users ability to set DEFAULT SHARE = VIEW ONLY!!!

    Quite annoying that such a basic setting isn't available to regular users (only site admins)

    because of this the RIGHTCLICK>Share oneDrive Link in Windows Explorer is absolutely useless to a lot of people because it defaults to an EDITABLE SHARE!!!

    I don't understand why this feature has to be queued up and awaiting votes, this is so basic!!!

  11. Add a "SYNC NOW" icon / shortcut

    This tech is supposed to be all about the cloud, in real time. I want to move from one device to the next in 2 mins and have confidence that every device has the current document version. The user needs to know when the sync has started / completed.
    Pls add a prominent shortcut icon to the header "area" that allows the user to manually start the sync process.

    ■Description(内容):
    現在、OneDrive for Business ならびに SharePoint Online で共有されたフォルダーの同期を実施する際、共有元のフォルダーにアクセスして同期を実施する必要がある。
    複数端末で同期設定を実施する場合、上記操作を実施するのに時間がかかるため、設定済み PC 内の同期内容をエクスポートし、別 PC に同期設定情報をインポートする機能の追加を希望します。

    To sync folders which are shared by OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online, users need to access the original folders first and then perform the sync. It takes time if you want to perform sync setting at multiple devices, therefore, we hope the feature will be implemented to export the sync settings of a PC and then import the settings to another PC.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  16. 'Allow download' option when sharing a folder

    It would be very useful to provide the 'allow download' selection toggle within link settings when sharing a folder with others to prevent them from downloading a local copy of any of the files within the folder - similar to how the 'allow editing' selection option works.

    I purchased onedrive for business specifically because I was led to believe I would be able to do this but was informed today that currently it is only available for office 365 (word, exel etc) individual shared documents.

    I was directed to a previous idea posted and wondered if there was any update…

  20. File system for chrome os

    It would be nice to have an extension for the file manager in Chrome Os that fully supports Onedrive. There is actually one (I guess an independent third party) https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/file-system-for-onedrive/jbfdfcehgafdbfpniaimfbfomafoadgo but it doesn't work properly on my Chromebook.
