  3. Increase F1/F3 ODFB Storage Limit from 2GB to 100GB or more

    Increase F1/F3 ODFB Storage Limit from 2GB to 100GB or more. 2GB is not enough storage for field users and trying to engineer solutions around this limit is time-consuming and inefficient.

  4. The ability to Delete Folders that aren't empty.

    By default you cannot delete folders in One Drive that aren't empty. This can be a huge pain especially when a user accidentally syncs a folder that should have been excluded (eg. 'C:\Users\UserName\Documents\MobaXTerm\ '). In order to delete the folder, I have to use a PowerShell script that recursively removes all of the sub-files and sub-folders (see attached).

  5. Delete local files and stop syncing after being removed from group

    When a user has marked a library for syncing after they are removed from the group no clean-up occurs and onedrive for business clients throws error.
    Overview:
    • removed from group
    • one drive client threw up error after 5-10 mins saying couldn't sync
    • manually removed sync location via one drive client
    • folder was left on pc
    • files i had opened and that where synced still available
    • had to manually delete folder

    Adding and removing access to groups/sites is a common task and means users are left to manually clean-up everytime they are removed and documents…

  6. Please add Unlimited Personal Vault features on a Storage Only package because we already bought MS Office (Not 365).

    Some people such as me, want to upgrade to get a personal vault feature, but we cannot buy 356 personal packages because we already have the Office app.

    I want to buy an OneDrive storage solution only (Maybe 1TB that's okay) but please include the personal vault without Office.
    I bet that will be attracting more customer from other cloud solutions like Google Drive or Dropbox.

  8. MFA support for OneDrive sync client

    Azure B2B guest user cannot use the OneDrive sync client, because the client does not support Multi-Factor-Authentication (MFA)!

    Please implement MFA for the B2B sync for OneDrive.

  9. allow admins to get a report of users that utilize the PC Folder Backup feature of OneDrive

    This will help admins track which users are using the feature so it can be implemented better. Management and deployment will be easy as you will only need to contact users that are not using the feature and avoid manually checking each user one by one.

  11. Correct login region accuracy and send activity sign in details on email for every login

    Always accessing the web to search and then see the sign-in details and activity log is cumbersome. Thereby it would be better if Microsoft OneDrive itself send the login details like Date and time of logging in, Device details used for signing in, IP Address of the device and location of sign in and login session details at sign out.

    I have also noticed that the location of logging in is not that accurate for example if a user of a particular country say India logs in to his account from a particular place of a particular city of a…

  12. Add the option to exclude file types from being backed up instead of blocking

    We need the ability to exclude files from being synced. Blocking them generates errors and warnings for the end users which freak them out. We either need the ability to silently block file types or just exclude them from syncing. We have this issue specifically with Microsoft Teams generating shortcuts that then get synchronised everywhere else.

  14. For security, allow per-folder setting of giving off an alert and halting file-sharing when wrong files are uploaded to OD4B

    ■Title(件名):

    アラートを出してファイルの共有の停止をする動作をフォルダー単位で設定できる機能の拡充希望

    To prevent leakage of confidential information, allow per-folder setting of alerts and halting file-sharing when wrong files are uploaded to OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):

    現在 DLP ポリシーを適用することでファイル名や列のプロパティ値などを対象としてファイルを監視し、該当のファイルがアップロードされた際にアラートを出してファイルの共有の停止させることができる。

    また、保持ラベルを合わせて使用することでファイル内の文字列を対象にファイル監視し、同様の設定ができる。

    しかしながら、タイマージョブの実行までに時間がかかるために、ファイルがアップロードされてから共有が停止されるまでにかなりの時間差が生ずる。

    加えて、DLP ポリシーはサイト コレクション単位での設定のため、フォルダー単位での細かい制御ができない。

    機密情報が漏洩するのを防ぐため、指定した文字列を含むファイルがアップロードされた際に、通知メールを送信しファイルの共有を停止する動作を、フォルダー単位で設定できるよう、機能拡充を希望する。

    Currently, by applying DLP policies, it is possible to monitor files for file names, property values ​​of columns, etc., and issue an alert and stop sharing the file when a specified file is uploaded .

    Also, the same can be done by, in combination with retention labels, monitoring the file for the character strings within.

    However, since it takes time for the timer job to…

    By default, when going over 90% of the upper usage cap on OneDrive for Business, a notification mail is sent, but we would like to be able to change that value, and set this as a new default value.
    If new users are added, instead of having to set this value again each time, it should be set to an initially configured default, and then if that value is exceeded…

  17. admin settings to change default document open behavior

    SharePoint has setting to change the default behavioor on document open.

    Admin can choose to open in online apps or desktop apps, at the collection level, and per document library.

    OneDrive lacks such controls in the modern interface.
    Global Admin does not have an option to choose the default open behavior.
    Individual users do not have a modern interface for that. Users have to go to Classic Settings and find the option 5 or 6 clicks deep to change it, which is not user friendly.

    Proposed settings:

    OneDrive Global Admin:

    Default behavior choices:
    Open in online apps

    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive のモバイル アプリに複数のアカウントでサインインをすると、アカウント同士が紐づく。PC など別の端末でも同じアカウントでサインインをすると紐づいたアカウントまで表示されるが、これを解消するためには一旦すべての端末からすべてのアカウントをサインアウトする必要があり、非常に手間なので、紐づきを解除する機能を用意して欲しい。
    When signing in to OneDrive mobile app using multiple accounts, those accounts will get linked to each other. If the same accounts are used to sign in into other devices like PC, accounts that were linked will be displayed, but if this is to be resolved all accounts will need to sign out from every device. This takes up lots of time, so we hope that a feature to remove the links will be provided.

  20. Provide a method to delegate access to a beneficiary upon death, like Google's Inactive Account Manager

    OneDrive accounts may contain very sensitive and important information, especially when combined with the use of the Personal Vault. For instance, if you store your will in your Personal Vault, then upon your death or presumed death a beneficiary should have a method to automatically gain access to your account. Google accomplishes this with the Inactive Account Manager. It is not sufficient that a family member can submit legal documentation as I should have the ability to decide who gets access to my account and when, and I can choose to accept the liability that comes with that decision.
