  1. Provide the OneDrive for Business standard feature to check the detailed user information who shared items

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    所有者以外でも、共有相手の詳細を確認できる機能が欲しい

    Provide the OneDrive for Business standard feature to check the detailed user information who shared items


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business にてアイテムを共有した場合、アイテムの所有者のみが共有相手の人数や詳細を確認できるが、ファイルの共有状況を所有者以外のユーザーでも把握したいと考えている。
    そのため、OneDrive for Business 標準機能として、共有アイテムの所有者以外のユーザーからも、共有相手の詳細を確認する機能を実装してほしい。

    When sharing an item on OneDrive for Business with others, only item owner can see the details of shared user information including the number of shared users.

    It would be nice if every user, not only an item owner, could see the detailed information of users who are shared the items, by using OneDrive for Business standard feature.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  2. Network Drive functionality

    I love Office 365, but some file types does not work directly from SharePoint and sync does not solve the issue as it contain "username" in folder path making collaboration "impossible" on graphical design files composed by multiple fragments and many co-authors.

    This I suggest you to make a enterprise network mapping option, and the ability to prioritize updates to that sync. This would give the users the ability to have same folder path to the content.

  4. Allow personal annotation for shared files

    Users are allowed to run notes on the shared files but the notes are available for personal view only and not shared like the files.

    This way, users would have personal notes not visible to others but will have a single source for the actual shared file.

    Example, I would be sharing files and discussing it over a meeting. Users can put notes on the shared files as we go along, but then these notes are available for their use only. Notes from other users are not shared, only the file.

  7. Enable commenting of Office files in the OneDrive Details panel same way as non-Office files

    Enable commenting of Office files in the OneDrive Details panel in the same way as non-Office files

    The recently released feature "Comments on non-Office Files" (Roadmap ID 16617) is excellent. But bafflngly, it does not support commenting - or even seeing the comments - of Office files without opening the document.

    Please make this consistent, so that all files - both Office and non-Office - may be commented in OneDrive in the same way; or at least so that comments in Office files would show in OneDrive (at the moment, there's only a version history note saying that the file…

  8. Documents as a task in my To-Do's

    It would be great if I can add a document to my Task list in To-Do (like the new functionality in Outlook where I can add a email to my Task list.

    Today I scan my document which I get by post and save them directly in OneDrive. If I have for example a invoice, I would like to add a reminder for that.
    At the Moment I have a Workaround and send me my document by email and add this email to my To-Do App as a new Task.

  9. Office integration in Outlook

    Please consider a option which automatically moves big mail attachments from Outlook to onedrive and replaces the attachment itself with a link to the file on OneDrive.

  11. it would be amazing if it proactively searched for duplicate files: by name/date/size/type & facial recognition & told location of ea. file

    its almost impossible to go back and clean up old photo albums when multiple kids have shared folders and photo streams and cloud albums, and then thumb drives, archive and mass external storage drives. it would be amazing if one drive (regardless of whether you are on the app or website), proactively searched for file duplicates, using a minimum of 5 different search criteria (size, type, date, name, facial recognition...) and temporarily segregated them, for review & acknowledgement of various locations where the document resides. Option to erase duplicates, compress image, leave as is, move, and so on would be…

  12. Come up with a design where OneDrive For Business can be set for External Sharing at each Individual User OneDrive level

    Currently when you set OneDrive for External Sharing - its a tenant setting, meaning all users in a tenant with OneDrive can share externally. This is a nightmare for governance perspective for any mid to large corporation. OneDrive External Sharing needs to be configured in a way where a user's OneDrive can be configured for External Sharing and others are not.

    Also to configure OneDrive for External Sharing, SharePoint Sites should not be a dependency to be configured for External Sharing. Now SharePoint sites can be created through many services and this is absolutely a big headache to manage.

    Thanks

  13. Hide the Print Details from the screen when printing files from Word Online

    Hide the Print Details from the screen when printing files from Word Online


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business に保存している Word ファイルを Word Online で開いて印刷する際に表示される印刷設定の詳細を非表示にする機能を搭載してほしい。

    When we try to print word files which saved on OneDrive for Business from Word Online, the “Print Details” is displayed automatically.

    Since there is no option available to hide Print Details, it will be nice if we could choose to display/hide the Print Details freely.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  17. Upload only link to customers with no access to open files uploaded

    I would like to have ability to edit permissions for outside firms to only allow uploading to a folder on OneDrive. i.e. we can send customers a link to a OneDrive folder that only allows them to upload files and not open those files. Currently if I remove the ability to open files in permissions it also removes the ability to add files.

    If PowerPoint file which is stored in OneDrive for Business is shared with enabling [Block Download] option, it is not available to open the file at browser of iPhone or Android devices.
    Word or Excel files are opened in same sharing situation, so it would be great if we can open PowerPoint files as well.

  19. Preserve offline files across sessions on apps

    When you are forced to log in again on the iOS app (for instance, if your password changes - which happens regularly in a lot of corporate setups) any downloaded files from shared locations get deleted.
    This can be quite annoying if every few months your AD password expires, all your downloaded shared files have to be downloaded again to use offline.

  20. 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.
