  1. you might consider making the 'lock' personalised thru settings or such ....

    from zero (locks instantly) up to 20mins. I'm not sure if security is higher this way or in password protected documents?

  2. Secure One Drive (web, android, iOS, PC and Mac) using two step authentication

    Secure One Drive (web, android, iOS, PC and Mac) using two step verification just like in "Personal Vault". This would definitely secure our One Drive in an event when one of our devices would be stolen. I have signed in to One Drive web recently and typed all the password and it automatically connects me with my One Drive without verifying who entered the password. What if something happens to one or more of my devices, how can I retrieve and possibly secure all my files in my Account. Identity theft is still the number one issue today.

  3. Fix security for OneDrive Folders & Files on Android.

    OneDrive app for Android is giving users a false sense of security. You can enable a password, or on certain devices, fingerprint security or facial recognition to unlock OneDrive. But if the user has installed Word Mobile, or Excel Mobile, all OneDrive folders and files are accessible without any password, fingerprint or other security. There is no way to limit the Word mobile or Excel mobile apps on Android from having access to OneDrive folders and files. So any security for OneDrive is completely bypassed.
    If one were to lose one's device, the whole idea of requiring security is so…

  5. Increase the filesize limit up to 100GB/File

    Microsoft, please increase the OneDrive filesize limit to a much higher size!

    The current filesize Limit is not up-to-date!

  6. Let us use alternate libraries from the default "Documents"

    Inside Onedrive for Business, we are currently able to go to "Site Contents" and add additional libraries, which currently works for integrations with other products such as Dynamics 365, however we have been told that alternate libraries inside OneDrive are being deprecated and will no longer be supported.
    This decision to deprecate alternate libraries should be reversed for several reasons including the fact that it contradicts the existing limitations on the number of items that can exist in a single library.
    Let us continue using alternate libraries inside OneDrive for Business, as we need this to continue being supported going…

  7. Path of file in info

    Searching a file via common specifications (e.g.: Rome municipality, conifers, article1.pdf) can gives various proposed file, but do not offer (at least in the info) the path of the file: they make it cumbersome to discern between multiple editions of the file, different topics and folders (shared or not), and in general recognize at a glance the exact location (in my case factor of productivity) become a complicated task.
    So please Just add those infos where it's supposed to find their.

  10. Let us enable versioning for a folder and file as well

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    バージョン管理機能の範囲について。
    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.

  11. Could the block sync for OneDrive desktop application be enhanced so OneDrive for Business and Sharepoint could be treated differently.

    Currently business uses the OneDrive client for 2 different purposes, the first is to provide users and interface with OneDrive for business. The users are not allowed to download this data to personal devices, so the option has been set to only allow this for domain joined devices.
    The client is also used to access sharepoint online, which is used to share with external customers, so we dont want the same restriction.

  14. Ability to audit/view who you have shared OneDrive files with as attachments in Outlook

    When attaching a link to a OneDrive for Business document within Outlook there should be a way you can audit or view who you have shared the link/document with. for example i've sent links to many files in my OneDrive over the past year or so but i'd like to be able to see who i've shared what and with who

  15. Selective Sync

    Allow us to select folders to not sync within the Entire sync'd drive on devices we choose. Eg. I have a folder with a lot of tutorial videos on my laptop that I would like to share with my peers, but I do not want it to sync to my iPad because that would take up way too much space.

  16. Set as default location storage for cloud users (Azure AD users)

    I have a problem forcing users NOT to save files and folder on the PC (Documents, C or D drive, Desktop..etc).

    Therefore, I would suggest to add an option to force all Azure cloud users to save files and folders to OneDrive (as OneDrive for users account or on Teams files) or set it as the default location is fine too.

  19. Tighter supervision for the support team

    I tried to report a simple bug through the support (request 1500877 - are there other ways of reporting a bug?) and it has been a ridiculous experience: they continuously replied with nonsensical **** to bounce me off to the Office support or just make me give up. After 20 useless mail exchanges I gave up. A mix of negligence and incompetence never seen before.
