  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. Linking multiple accounts

    Linking multiple accounts


    ■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.

  7. 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.

    ※ 長期休暇の社員が 1 年後に復帰する際など、ライセンスを解除してから 30 日以上経過したユーザーにライセンスを再付与する場合があるため。
    When re-licensing a user who has stopped the license for more than 30 days, the user may not be able to access data on OneDrive for Business if the user fails to finish the provisioning normally. Thus we hope that a feature that can complete provisioning correctly for users who have passed the 30 day mark will be implemented.

  9. Creating a Static Link which does not include Personal Information when sharing files.

    OneDrive "get link" URL contains personally-identifiable information. The URL that OneDrive gives you, when you share a folder, or file, contains both the organization name, as well as your personal email address.
    "https://<your organization>-my.sharepoint.com/personal/<your email address>/_layouts/15/guestaccess.aspx?folderid=1fc523d2004e243e5b01f8444a25aa921&authkey=ATiR2GckBFQK9-Tl8u4Q6bM"

  11. 6TB per one person and one person only. Best be in the very near future

    Let me know when you allow one person to utilize all of the 6TB at once, then I'll consider signing up. In the meantime, 1TB per person, out of 6TB, is ludicrous!

    We sent people to the Moon! How is this not possible?

  13. 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.

  16. Option for OneDrive to Skip Backup of Select Folders, without deleting them from our computers.

    Folders like ".git", "tmp", "cache" should never be backed up. They are easily regenerated and there is no logical reason to backup these folders ever. These folders need to be skipped.

    Currently we have the option to not backup certain folders but they will be deleted from our computers if we do. How about allow us to keep the folder on our computers and OneDrive...simply ignores it.

  17. Option to set one specific folder "Always keep on this device" in intune and GPO

    It would be great if admins can set the value "always keep on this device" for a specific folder in the OneDrive of all users in the company.

    We can use this for example to place UE-V files.

    If possible, can it be set with a GPO or Intune or both.

  18. Add a report that shows all shared files for all users in a tenancy (User, Shared File Name, Who the file is shared with).

    Our Information Governance Dept have requested a report as above so that they can keep tabs on what users are sharing from OneDrive.

  19. 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?

    About OneDrive sync client error detection accuracy


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive 同期クライアントのエラーの検出機能の精度が低いため、エラーを検出しても詳細が表示されない。
    そのため、エラーが発生するたびに多岐に渡るトラブルシューティングの実施が必要となり、不便である。
    問題が特定できれば、対処の工数も減るため、エラーの検出機能の精度を上げて欲しい。
    The error detection feature of OneDrive sync client has a low accuracy rate, and details are not displayed even when an error is detected.
    As a result lots of troubleshooting steps need to be implemented whenever an error occurs which is very inconvenient.
    If we can identify the problem, the number of steps to resolve it will be reduced, so we hope that the accuracy of the error detection feature can be improved.
