  2. "Exclude specific KINDS of files from being uploaded" - GPO Not Working

    The newest GPO addition which allows the administrator to exclude certain file names (including wildcards) from upload isn't working. This is different than the setting which excludes file "extensions" (which does work properly).

    We've deployed the latest version of the Sync client as well as have updated our ADMX files for the use of the new GPO options for OneDrive.

    Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that the Sync client is honoring the list of file names (or patterns) that the GPO places into the registry location:

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\OneDrive\EnableODIgnoreListFromGPO

    Microsoft 365 管理センターから、OneDrive の容量上限を変更する際、エラーが出ないように改善してください。

    Trying to change OneDrive’s upper storage limit from the Microsoft 365 admin center gives an error.
    It is possible to change it by small amounts, for example in 100GB increments.

    You can also change it using Windows PowerShell, but this takes some work, which is inconvenient.
    Please make it possible to change the storage limit for OneDrive from the Microsoft 365 admin center without getting any errors.

  10. Open Source Code with real privacy needed

  11. Technician role for Sync Admin Report

    Either lower the role needed, or create an alternative "Technician view" for the new Sync Admin Report for someone without the Global Reader (or some higher) role.
    Ideally, we want those with a helpdesk or technician role to be able to see current sync status on a per computer basis with a field for user as well. The current O365 health reporting only shows user. The main workflow intended is for device replacement or system restores, so we can see data is backed up before proceeding and without expecting this burden to be on the end user.

    If we need…

  14. Merge all OneDrive/ SharePoint into Office App Admin Center

    *** the Office ecosystem is pulled together more, allow for all applications (OneDrive, Teams, M365 Apps, Office Add-ins) to be manage from the Office App Admin Center so that enterprise teams can have a central location for managing all aspects of M365 within an organization. Right now, to deploy an add-in you need someone with Global or Exchange Admin rights when that should be with the Office app admin role. Same with managing OneDrive client settings and policies. Retention and restoration should be moved to the Office App Admin Center.

  15. Allow Export of OneDrive Details from App Admin Center

    Currently in preview there is an option to see all details for the OneDrive sync client in the App Admin Center but no method of exporting the data as a whole or individually. It would be great if we could get an option to export the data with the error types so that in case of any error, it can be resolve where we would know the issue with detail in an exported csv file.

  17. Onedrive Share Links Should not be affected by UPN Name Change

    We had some issues recently due to this: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/upn-changes

    IMO it should get fixed very soon, as name changes are very common due to marriage etc.

    It is not practical in productive environment!

  18. Personal Vault in OneDrive needs better access support

    I'm currently having issues with my Personal Vault and wish there's someone from Microsoft OneDrive who can further assist me faster vs. getting transfer around, and still no one able to help or know what the problem is.

    The issue started when I could not send a code to my email to get access to our company's Personal Vault so I've decided to change the security information from Email to Phone Number hoping that it would fix the issue. However, that made it worse. Unbeknownst to me, there's a waiting period of 30 DAYS for the changes to take effect…

  19. Provide a way to perform "Add shortcut to My files" on behalf of a user

    Sometimes we have the need to pre-provision folders for users in both IT admin and developer scenarios. We'd like to see a programmatic method for setting up these shortcut for users. I'm in the process of migrating 250 users into our tenant from a company we acquired. Through the process of restructuring the shared libraries and folders we realized the need to setup these shortcuts on behalf of users to ensure a smooth transition.

  20. For Netherlands : allow Digid for accesscontrol

    I have a suggestion on access control:

    In the Netherlands government web access e.g. to fill in your tax are controlled by Digid. This is a secure system which almost all inhabitants of the Netherlands use.

    The advantage of Digid are that :
    - If a user looses there credentials then they can contact the Dutch government to get your credentials back.
    - Almost all residents of the Netherlands have a digid account.
    - It is secure.

    It is already used by e.g. Dutch medical insurance companies to allow web access for there clients.
