  1. Access Sharepoint shared folder in 'Shared with Me' in App

    If I share a folder within a SharePoint library to a user (who has other access to the libary), I cannot see this folder in the "Shared with Me" when using either the Outlook for iOS or Android App. The folder DOES appear when using a browser so the permissions and access work.

    Furthermore, if I open the email invitation to the shared folder on a phone/tablet and click on the link, the device will open OneDrive and into the shared folder. However, if I return to OneDrive at a later date, there is no way to get back to…

    Share OneDrive sync client update timing with users in advance


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive の同期クライアントの更新のタイミングを事前に把握しておきたい。

    背景として、テナント内で一斉に OneDrive の同期クライアントの更新を行うことで、ネットワークに負荷がかかる可能性がある。
    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 to…

  3. The errors are displayed when editing an Excel file synced with OneDrive for Business in Office client

    同期している共有 Excel ファイルを Office クライアントにて編集する際にエラーが表示される事象について

    The errors are displayed when editing an Excel file synced with OneDrive for Business in Office client

    OneDrive for Business 同期クライアントにて同期している Excel ファイルを複数のユーザーと共有している。

    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 to…

  5. Enable setting a password for files in OneDrive for Business when sharing files with external users

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Business の外部共有について

    Enable setting a password for files in OneDrive for Business when sharing files with external users


    ■Description(内容):
    個人用の OneDrive で共有する際は、当該のファイルを選択し、[共有] をクリックすると [パスワードの設定] と表示され、ファイルにパスワードを設定し共有が可能。
    OneDrive for Business には、そのような機能がないため、同じようにパスワードの設定をかけ共有できるよう機能の拡充希望。

    When sharing items via personal OneDrive, as users select the file and click [Share], they can set password for the shared files from [Set Password:] menu. This option is currently not available for OneDrive for Business.

    For improvement of usability, add setting password option to OneDrive for Business as well.

    Thank you for your consideration

  6. Provide the more detailed information for Invalid file types in OneDrive.exe

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    新しい同期クライアント (OneDrive.exe) で利用できないファイルの種類について

    Provide the more detailed information for Invalid file types in OneDrive.exe


    ■Description(内容):
    新しい同期クライアント (OneDrive.exe) を使用し、従来の同期クライアント (Groove.exe) の制限事項の "無効なファイルの種類" に記載の以下のファイルのアップロードの動作検証を実施いたしました。
    <調査結果>
    .laccdb、.tpm、thumbs.db、EhThumbs.db、thumbs.db

    通常同期フォルダー上では同期が完了すると "緑のチェック マーク" "青い雲のマーク" などが付きますが、当該のファイルについては同期フォルダー上で何も付かない、またエラーの表示がないことを確認いたしました。
    なお、ブラウザー上からアップロードが完了したかを確認した際は、当該のファイルは表示されませんでした。

    *.tmp
    同期フォルダー上からアップロードを実施いたしましたが、同期フォルダー上で "同期中" の矢印のマークが回転したままの状態となり、同期が完了しない動作を確認いたしました。
    また、タスクバー上の同期アイコンはエラーが表示されず、"OneDrive は最新の状態です" と表示されております。

    上述の、従来の同期クライアント (Groove.exe) で "無効なファイルの種類" として指定されているファイルについては、新しい同期クライアント (OneDrive.exe) を使用した場合にも同期が正常に完了していないように見受けられるため、新しい同期クライアント (OneDrive.exe) 側の制限事項の公開情報にも記載していただくか、または新しい同期クライアント (OneDrive.exe) の制限事項に含まれていない理由などについて詳細を記載していただくようお願いいたします。

    I tested the uploading behavior of files stated as Invalid file types in a support article for Groove.exe, using with OneDrive.exe. Followings are the verification results I’ve got.

  8. Allow individual external settings in Office 365 admin center

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Office 365 管理センターにてユーザーの外部共有が反映しない

    Allow individual external settings in Office 365 admin center


    ■Description(内容):
    Office 365 管理センターからアクティブなユーザーを指定し、 "OneDrive の設定 " から 外部共有を個別に制限すると、画面上反映されたように見えるも画面を更新すると元の設定に戻ってしまう。
    PowerShell コマンドレットにて同様の設定が可能も、ブラウザー上からの操作が反映しないため、改善してほしい。

    As we pick an active user on Office 365 admin center and turn on external sharing individually on OneDrive for Business settings, it seems like it’s properly applied. No errors, everything looks nice while external sharing is actually not applied as I refresh the screen.

    For improvement of usability and manageability, allow individual external settings on a browser, without using PowerShell cmdlet.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Display the process of the updates and the number of remaining files until it is completed via App.


    ■Description(内容): ​​
    ​現在のOneDrive アプリのファイルのアップロードと自動アップロード機能は、ファイル数が多量の場合に「アップロード中」の表示が消える。残りファイル数が表示されないことで、所用時間や、アップロードが完了したことを確認できないという困難があります。

    For now, OneDrive app's file upload/auto-uploading feature confirms that the “Uploading” is not displaying if there are many files existed. By not displaying the number of remaining files, there is a difficulty to confirm the required time and upload completion timing by users.

    Please add the feature that the user can be visually confirmed by displays for the process is ongoing and the number of remaining files until the upload is…

  12. I think it would be a useful feature if I could see who of those people I have shared folders and files has been reading my OneDrive folders

    I think it would be a useful feature if I could see who of those people I have shared folders and files has been reading my OneDrive folders and/or files and when they have been reading those.
    The history of editing is already visible, but now I mean statistics only about opening the folder or file (readings), even by those who have read-only access.
    Compare the feature "has seen" of Facebook and Messenger.

  16. Make shared folders visible for third party applications

    Hey, me and my partner have little problem with sharing files that are meant to be used by third party app. The app uses OneDrive as a storage and we want to use one folder to share files and expand its content together. But in application folder is avaliable only on my account (as an owner). My partner on the other hand can't access the folder via mentioned application, but she can add content that I can access. So the problem is probably that she's not the owner of the folder and we can't set up 2 owners, so the…

  17. Hide documents from Delve, that are shared with "link sharing"

    If user shares document with link inside organization, this sharing option creates illusion that only users who know exact link, can access document.
    Everyone in organization can see document if they open user page in Delve.
    All documents that user shared with link are publicly available to all workers inside company in Delve.

  18. Download Shared file instead of open it online

    When you send a single file, allow users to download them instead of opening the file on Excel/power point/word online. That's a pain when you receive a large file and have to wait long to let it open and then download it or open it on your desktop.

  19. Change Access Permissions for File Request Feature

    Love the new file request feature and can be very useful in my org. We would like to see a different approach for access and not have to enable anyone with a link access. We would like the specific people sharing option, to lock whom the request stays with. I does not seem secure that I can forward that link to another use to upload whatever they want.
