  1. Make it work properly when working from different machines

    I have two excel spreadsheets that are updated by several devices and the failure rate of the sync is annoyingly high, Often I go in and it converts theworking copy to match the old one I have just opened on the machine I am then working on so I then have to spend time looking through the history to find an earlier version from another machine and restore, or reenter missing data. Other times I get a message to say the sync has failed - do I want to make a copy.

  2. 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.

    Currently, even though we deleted a user from Office 365, the data of the deleted user’s OneDrive for Business remains for a certain period of times. This might cause the problem because other users can access the shared items of deleted user’s OneDrive for Business.

    Therefore, I hope you to implement the feature…

  5. Allow setting the expiration date when creating shared links

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    有効期限を設定して共有リンクを作成する機能について

    Allow setting the expiration date when creating shared links


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、ファイルやフォルダーに対して外部ユーザーがアクセス可能な共有リンクを作成する場合、誰でもアクセス可能な匿名の共有リンクを作成した場合のみ、有効期限を設定することができる。
    特定のユーザーのみ利用可能な共有リンクには有効期限を設定することができないため、期間を指定して共有リンクを作成できるよう機能を追加して欲しい。

    Currently, if we want to set the expiration date for sharing links that external users can access, the sharing links need to be anonymous links, accessible from anyone know the links.
    It means that it is not possible to set the expiration date for shared links which can be accessed from only specific users.
    To solve this problem, allow us to create shared links with specifying the time duration to be shared.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Restrict sharing items without permission in OneDrive for Business

    If I grant the edit permission to a folder in OneDrive for Business and share the folder with another user, the shared user will be able to share the folder with other users by sending the [Share] link from the folder.

    For improvement of manageability, add an option to restrict users who have no right to manage permissions from sending a shared link to other users.

  13. Pictures Folder Is A Convoluted Mess - Needs to respect origin and folders

    Pictures come from a camera via my PC and from my phone. I organize folders on Android by the edit software I use. I organize photos on Windows by the subject. I can't make any sense out of how, let alone why, 1D merges and recombines the pictures and folders. Please, just have a folder for the source device, then folders under each device as they are on the device, and wtf is cameraroll all about?

  14. AutoCAD/Adobe and Onedrive Sync

    We are a large Design and Engineering department trying to move from local server to the cloud as this would make our life easier especially while working with different offices globaly.

    We use Autocad with a lot of Xrefs. We found that across our team, when someone open a CAD file, it disappears from all the other peoples onedrives on their computers.

    This is an issue because if this file is reloaded, it disappears and shows as missing, until the person that is editing it, saves and closes it.

    If you work on a local server, or even with google…

    We noticed that as we share items on OneDrive for Business from Outlook client by using file attachment feature, the items will be shared with anonymous access links. Because of that reason, we cannot receive the alert when the shared users share those items with another user.

  17. Remove un-synced library from explorer

    I stopped syncing a shared document library but the folder remained in my file explorer.

    Because the un-synced folder remained in explorer I accidentally deleted the other synced library, which deleted all of the files in the library. Removing the un-synced folder from explorer immediately would prevent this user error in the future.

  18. Prevent the creation of a manually created folder in the root of the Tenant Client Synce Team sites

    From the explorer view, and the root hierarchy of Team Site Sync'd data under the Tenant name. End-user are able to manually create a new folder and sub structure. This data does not get sync'd.

    This results in data being resident to the device only, and not sync'd back.

    If the same action is done from within a Team Site structure, the data is sync'd.

    Need to understand how to limit/prevent users from creating this non-sync'd folder structure.

  19. Track number of file downloads

    It would be fantastic to include a way to see how many times a file has been downloaded. This should be a basic function for any file sharing service. People use OneDrive for business purposes and would obviously want to know if people are downloading certain files. Such a simple feature would be easy to add to the details of the file.

    This suggestion has been made for both OneDrive and Google Drive, and the only responses they have ever received is "This is an interesting feature and we'll consider adding it." I don't understand how something so basic could…
