  2. Folder and File share access - restrict via IP Address

    We would like to assign share access to Folders and Files to specific users that are connecting from specific IP addresses. This can already be done as a whole within sharepoint but this prevents access to other areas of the system.

    We have confidential information that we would like staff to view that can be viewed only from the Company's external IP Address.

    Features for site collection administrator’s maintenance


    ■Description(内容):

  5. Allow subdirectories within OneDrive to be flagged as no sync

    Lightroom writes its temp files/thumbnails to a subdirectory within my Lightroom directory on OneDrive. All the temp files sync, taking up a lot of unncessary space. I want to flag the directory as sync disabled so it doesn't roam via onedrive

  8. Granting an app OneDrive permission should only grant access to a specific folder. Not everything

    When installing apps that uses OneDrive (I my case apps on Android) you grant them a very broad permission to access ALL AND EVERYTHING stored on my OneDrive.

    I my specific case, I wanted to try out apps that can stream the music from OneDrive I have stored on OneDrive. mp3 etc.

    You can only grant permissions to all and everything stored on OneDrive and not just that one folder where my music is. This behavior prevents me for using any non-Microsoft app that wants to connect to my OneDrive.

    I store personal sensitive stuff on OneDrive and I don't…

  10. OneDrive for Business: Enable functionality to deny execution instead of just blocking sync of file types.

    Blocking files has rendered how I use OneDrive (allows me access to various tools from machine to machine) useless as my company has blocked .reg, bat. cmd, exe, etc, etc because they have no ability to deny execution like we have on our internal files servers. Allow OneDrive admins to set deny execution instead of wholesale blocking of file types.

  12. OneDrive Notification when Freezing for Inactivity

    Hi,

    It would be nice to receive a notification when you are about to freeze my OneDrive account for inactivity. Moreover, I was using it. The app is installed on my phone and my laptop. I have files stored, that I some times look at. I suspect you consider me inactive just because I did not change the contents of the folder, but that doesn't mean I am not using it.

    I was reinstalling my OS, and when I tried to login to the OneDrive app, it said I have to go to the website. The website told me that…

  14. Please add rules/control to select folders/files that should be local stored only.

    OneDrive doesn't have a very simple and basic function. It doesn't allow users to select subfolders and files to not be synchronized, to avoid uploading to the cloud.
    Example:
    If we have a project folder on OneDrive with 10 subfolders I should be able to select which of those folders would be uploaded, but for now, we cannot. All of the subfolders and files will be synchronized to the cloud. If we check the option to not synchronize one of the subfolders, OneDrive will let the files only on OneDrive and not on the local machine, the opposite of what…

  15. Improve deleted user notice to reporting manager

    The plain-text, single paragraph notice is hard for many users to understand. Consider breaking up into several chunked paragraphs.

    An example of how this might be done is listed here:

  16. Update Quota Automatically

    When an administrator assigns a license with greater OneDrive Storage Capacity to a user, this quota is not automatically applied. Despite paying for and assigning the license with the greater capacity our team must use PowerShell to connect to these user's OneDrive sites and manually attempt to reset their quota. The challenge is compounded if a user is already at capacity as it would require having the admin, ask the user to clean up their storage space so that we can then come back and bump the quotas to what, we would have expected to have occurred when we assigned…

  18. Enforce RMS on OneDrive library for all the users with one click

    The ability to control RMS azure right management encryption for all the user from admin console instead of going on all users one by one to enable it.
    At least aa powershel script to do that for admin will be great.
    We want to enable RMS for all the files that are on their Onedrive for all the users in company.

  19. Allow Manager Access on Disable instead of Delete of AAD Account

    We would like the option to grant the manager access to a OneDrive when a user account is disabled (Sign-In Blocked) rather than deleted. We leave accounts disabled for 30 days so we need to manually grant access to managers.
