  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?

  3. Provide us to delete local cash files automatically when file on demand is enabled

    I would like to see the feature to “increase storage space” if there are unused files for certain period (specified period) at sync folder automatically.
    At current feature, we need to enable file on demand for OneDrive for Business and save items on the local to make more space for hard disk with “increase storage space” option.

    At “Office 365 URLs and IP address ranges” page, I can easily see the last update date, but it is difficult to find which information was added or deleted.
    It would be great if the detail of added/deleted information will be more visible at the information page.

  6. 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.

  9. Centrally manage / easier Sharepoint syncing

    I find that trying to train users on syncing Sharepoint has been EXTREMELY challenging, more so than creating apps, configuring Sharepoint or even landing men on the moon for some reason... It would be handy to have a console where I can say right that bunch of users, matter what Device they are on (as long as it is Windows 10), they get these libraries synced. I have generally always got 1 site that everyone accesses (or the vast majority) and it would be good to just tick a box and whenever a new laptop is added, as soon as…

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  15. OneDrive for Business: Revise the "Access Files" feature in the Microsoft 365 admin center

    Currently, admins with the SharePoint administrator role can easily access the personal OneDrive for Business library of other users in the same tenant following the steps described below:

    - Search for the user in the Microsoft 365 admin center
    - Click on "OneDrive Settings"
    - Click on "Access files"

    Subsequently, the admin performing these steps is added as site collection admin to the OneDrive for Business site collection of the user.

    While we trust each other within our team, this feature might be a huge concern to other people in the company. In addition, users might lose trust in Office…

  16. 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,…

  17. Pricing range, cheaper and more variety

    Adding variety of pricing for One Drive. For now the OneDrive pricing is way too high for Indonesian market. Google taking away the market with cheaper option, let's say, 50gb on OneDrive is 31k IDR, where 100gb google drive is 25k IDR per month, with only 249k per year. the office bundling is just not everyone use, even I know it's way powerful then Google offer, but the Android and iOS version is way behind the desktop version, and way less capable than the Google Docs.

  20. 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.
