  1. Shares expiration after X days for all sharing levels (Public, New External, Existing External, ...)

    Hello everyone,

    For security reasons, I think it would be interesting to be able to limit all the shares proposed by OneDrive in time.

    Today, we can define the number of days after which a share expires only when we configure OneDrive to the most permissive level: Share with everyone.

    Why not allow this expiration notion for other levels of sharing?

    • Let us enable versioning for a folder and file as well

      Let us enable versioning for a folder and file as well

      ***************
      ■Description(内容):
      バージョン管理機能を使用する場合、SharePoint Online では "リスト" "ライブラリ" 単位で設定が可能。
      また、OneDrive for Business では "ライブラリ" 単位で設定が可能ですが、"フォルダー" および "ファイル" 単位でも細かく設定ができるよう、機能の実装をお願いします。

      I would like to configure versioning not only for a library, but also for a folder and file at both SharePoint and OneDrive for Business.

      Thank you for your consideration.

      • OneDrive Internal Sharing for Non Owners

        There needs to be a way of setting this at an organizational level. I am able to turn off sharing for non-owners via powershell, however it requires me to create a script to connect to each person's OneDrive, and it leaves the "Allow access requests" unchecked.

        Goal: Require any re-sharing to be approved by the owner for the entire organization.

        • Allow OneDrive KFM to work with folder redirected folders

          Currently (OneDrive client version 18.131.0701.004) Known Folder Migration will not work with known folders that have been redirected. When this is configured, the end user sees "The <folder name> folder contains other important folders and isn't supported for file protection". It seems to want all known folders to be located in their default, local location (C:\Users\<username>\folder) and will not migrate/redirect if they're already being redirected.

          The overwhelming majority of enterprise (and smaller) orgs do not store data on local workstations, and I don't see any use case for KFM because of this limitation.

              • Ability for OneDrive Admins to Flag Folders as "Do Not Sync"

                Ability for OneDrive Administrators to flag some folders in individual users cloud based OneDrive for Business libraries as “do not sync” so that the end-user cannot check them in the Next Gen Sync Client (NGSC) for synchronization to their local machine. The NGSC should honor that attribute and show the folder as “greyed out” – possibly with a hover over pop-up message stating that the folder cannot be synchronized locally because of IT policy.

                Options should be available for bulk application to all users OneDrive folders by specifying a folder name (or folder name pattern) to be flagged as non-synchronizable,…

                  • Add extra storage to OneDrive user

                    Using a Office 365 Home subscription, you get 1 TB OneDrive space for each user - currently 6 users in total. I suggest making it possible to increase the storage for each user, surely for an extra fee or montly cost or similar. As it is now, users has no chance adding extra TB and therefore they are stock at 1 TB.

                    • Prevent Download - Shared files - eg: .m4a files

                      The option to prevent download of shared files only works on a select few file formats. If i upload an m4a file to onedrive and set it so no one can download it, users are still able to download the file.

                      Google Drive have got it right - files that cannot be played in the browser cannot be downloaded to the user's device.

                        • recover files after freezing account

                          Dear team Microsoft,
                          i just lost my account and the whole files in it because it's getting freezed first. i am so dissapoint because the files cannot be recover again even after i buy 360 or another product.
                          Some files is very important and it is okay if i have to pay "a product" or doing something to recover the files. Doesnt give any chance for your costumer to recover their files is very harmful.

                          thanks,

                          • Adjust the notification message generated when multiple files are moved or deleted.

                            Ability to adjust the message "Heads up! We noticed that you recently deleted a large number of files from a site". Also the ability to set a minimum number of files before the alert is triggered.

                            The message is causing confusion when users move files as they are get picked up as being deleted.

                              • Allow Manager Access on Disable instead of Delete of AAD Account

                                We would like the option to grant the manager access to a OneDrive when a user account is disabled (Sign-In Blocked) rather than deleted. We leave accounts disabled for 30 days so we need to manually grant access to managers.

                                    It's great that I can sign in to a personal OneDrive accounts and multiple Business OneDrive accounts simultaneously. I would love to be able to sign in to multiple personal accounts at once.

                                    • The ability to prohibit certain classes of users from sharing with all users.

                                      For a given class of users we need the ability to block the "share with everyone" feature.

                                      • Multiple PC's using same One Drive

                                        When one drive is mapped to multiple PC's (this is the need of using cloud drive) when there are changes made on one PC and when accessing from another PC, One drive is unable to sync the changes and says there is a file or folder by the same name and stops sync - The error message says rename the folder - instead this can be automated with renaming the folder with PC name and the user can choose which to retain. Today the basic use of one drive is not usable due to the conflict error message which then…

                                        • Transfer data from personal onedrive to business

                                          I need to transfer my data from my personal onedrive account to my new O365 for business account. I have 83Gb of data and another user to go. The only way I can find to do this is download the data from personal to hardrive and then upload to business. This is time consuming and waste of data allowance and killing my bandwith. Why is there not a back-of-house method to do this?
