  1. Allow us to export [Statistics for Files] of OneDrive for Business

    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Business の [ファイルの統計情報] のエクスポート機能の実装
    Allow us to export [Statistics for Files] of OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):
    現在の動作において、OneDrive for Business の [ファイルの統計情報] のエクスポート機能が実装されていないことを確認しております。
    代替方法として、管理者側から Office 365 監査ログの検索結果をエクスポートすることが可能ですが、
    ユーザー単位でも [ファイルの統計情報] のエクスポートを可能とする機能の実装を希望します。

    I would like to see the feature to export [Statistics for Files] of OneDrive for Business for each user.
    Exporting Office 365 audit logs by admins is working as a workaround, but it would be great if exporting [Statistics for Files] of each user is available as well.

  2. 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.

  5. Disable "People in {Tenant Name} with the link"

    Allow organization admins to disable "People in {Tenant Name} with the link" sharing.

    In order to help maintain inter-departmental access controls it would be helpful to disable this link. This would be similar to the ability to disable "Anyone with the link" that currently exists.

    It is not uncommon for customer to Share Folders and inadvertently exposing content that is controlled through other RBAC methods. These links break those control models and impact OneDrive adoption.

  7. 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.

  8. Allow syncing only on computers joined to a local workgroup

    Allow only syncing on PC's connected to an Azure domain. The setting is in OneDrive Admin but it only works for local AD domains. It doesn't say that so it is very confusing but I found an article on that from a third party and Microsoft agreed it was true. Allow only syncing on PC's connected to an Azure domain.

  9. Allow us to control sharing between users between different GEO in Multi-GEO environment

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Multi-GEO 環境を利用の場合に、他の GEO のユーザーと共有できないよう制御する機能について
    Allow us to control sharing between users between different GEO in Multi-GEO environment


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、OneDrive for Business において、同一テナント内のユーザー間での共有を禁止する機能が実装されていないことを確認しております。Multi-GEO 環境を利用している場合に同一テナント内のユーザー間での共有を禁止できないことで、社内の機密情報が海外に漏洩する可能性があるため、異なる GEO 間での共有を禁止する機能の実装をお願いします。

    I would like to see the feature to restrict sharing between users in different GEO. In current design, we are no able to stop sharing for users in same tenant in OneDrive Business, however, confidential information leakage to outside of countries might occur when we use Multi-GEO environment.

  10. Easy-to-see added/deleted information at “Office 365 URLs and IP address ranges” page

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    "Office 365 の URL と IP アドレスの範囲" に更新があった場合の表示について。
    Easy-to-see added/deleted information at “Office 365 URLs and IP address ranges” page


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft の公開情報 "Office 365 の URL と IP アドレスの範囲" に追加、更新が合った場合、"最終更新日" は確認できるが、どの項目が削除、追加されたのか分かりにくい。
    追加、削除された内容の詳細を、更新があった際に分かりやすく記載してほしい。

    タイトル : Office 365 の URL と IP アドレスの範囲 | Microsoft Docs
    アドレス : https://docs.microsoft.com/ja-jp/office365/enterprise/urls-and-ip-address-ranges

    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.

  11. Optimizing the Order of File Transfer

    Optimizing the Order of File Transfer
    Arrange the order of files according to the requirements.
    First download or upload the latest files, then download or upload the old files, and finally process the deleted files.
    This will prevent the current amendments and new documents from being processed in a timely manner.

  12. Require OS passcode

    Rather than the currently-offered "require app passcode" policy, offer a policy that works similarly to the Outlook Mobile app, where the app doesn't have its own unique passcode, but refuses to function until you have set a passcode in the OS of the mobile device.

  13. File Encryption for OneDrive Personal Users

    File Encryption for OneDrive personal users

    Microsoft needs to offer file encryption for its personal users as they do for business customers. We pay for a service and I would feel more confident if I didn't have to use a 3rd party app to encrypt my personal data on OneDrive.

  14. Eliminate filename and folder name exclusions

    At the moment, some characters and file/folder names will not sync, even though the names are valid on the device. For instance, a folder named "Forms" in the root of the sync directory will not sync to the cloud. This is an unnecessary restriction.

  15. Clearly state, in layman's terms, your encryption policy, in the documentation

    Please clearly state if you encrypt non-subscription OneDrive files at rest (free, personal, OneDrive files).

    In layman's terms, please discuss the differences between encryption options for both "Subscribed-to-Office 365 personal" users, and "non-subscribed personal" users.

    In layman's terms, please clearly indicate the context of Microsoft encrypting our personal files at rest, via OneDrive (free, personal version), and the consequences thereof -- theoretically speaking -- Microsoft would have the key and a Bad Actor could unlock said files.

    Publicly explain why, or why you don't, encrypt OneDrive files at rest for free, personal use.

  17. Set or change default timezone and region for all users

    There should be the ability to set the timezone and region for all users in a tenant at the admin level.

    At the moment the timezone and region at set to US which makes no sense when the Office 365 tenant is set different.
    It results in the dates being displayed in the wrong format in Excel online documents.

    It's unreasonable to assume a user will go and change this setting.

  19. Increase the free storage

    Giving only 5 GB for free on OneDrive is the worst idea. Google Drive offers 15 GB for free then why Microsoft's OneDrive doesn't? If 15 GB is not possible then give at least 10 GB of free storage! 5 GB is not sufficient for any one. Also Google Drive offers unlimited photos and videos upload on high quality, OneDrive also compromises in that part too! So sad to see how world's most richest man consume his money on his own fans & customers.

  20. Prevent the ability to delete the location being synced in explorer until syncing has stopped.

    When a user selects the location they are syncing in the explorer navigation pane they should not be able to delete this folder or selecting delete should automatically stop the sync and then remove the folder. Currently pressing delete prompts them that the folder will be permanently removed from their computer but doesn't let them know that the Onedrive sync client will go-ahead and delete all the contents of that folder in SharePoint as well.
