  2. Notifications when the owner of a folder on OneDrive for Business has their account deleted

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Businessのフォルダ所有者のアカウント削除時の通知について
    Notifications when the owner of a folder on OneDrive for Business has their account deleted


    ■Description(内容):
    特定のユーザーの OneDrive for Business のフォルダーを複数名で共有して利用しています。
    管理者が退職者のアカウントを削除する際、管理者は OneDrive for Business の他ユーザーへの共有については管理をしていないため、共有先ユーザーへ通知をすることはおこなっていません。
    そのため、管理者が共有元ユーザーのアカウントを削除をすると、共有先ユーザーは告知なしに今まで利用していたフォルダーやファイルを利用することが出来なくなります。
    OneDrive for Business においてユーザーが削除される場合、今までに共有をおこなったことのあるユーザーへ一斉通知を送信するようにできないでしょうか。
    一斉通知が送信できれば、共有元ユーザーが削除される前に通知を送信し、必要なファイルを移動させることができるので、機能の実装を希望いたします。

    We have a specific user sharing a folder on OneDrive for Business with many people.
    When an administrator deletes the account of someone who has left the company, since the administrator does not manage sharing with other users on OneDrive for Business, the users with which the deleted user’s files were being shared are not notified of the change.
    Therefore, if…

  7. Change external sharing setting, which is more permissive for some users than default

    Some users needs more permissive sharing settings for sharing files (e.g. "Anyone"). The default set in the Admin Center should be less permissive (e. g. "New and existing guests").
    Problem: If you set the external sharing setting "Anyone" in Admin Center, each new user's sharing settings has to be changed to "New and existing guests".

    Please provide an option, to assign a more permissive sharing setting for some users than the default in Admin Center.

  9. 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.

    Currently, it is possible to restrict external access to OneDrive for Business using IP restrictions.
    However, if these settings are used, access to SharePoint Online is also restricted accordingly.
    Therefore, please add a way to restrict external access to OneDrive for Business while still allowing it for SharePoint Online.

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. 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).

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.
