  1. Transfer data from personal onedrive to business

    I need to transfer my data from my personal onedrive account to my new O365 for business account. I have 83Gb of data and another user to go. The only way I can find to do this is download the data from personal to hardrive and then upload to business. This is time consuming and waste of data allowance and killing my bandwith. Why is there not a back-of-house method to do this?

  5. Fix the behavior of creating new Excel file with [View in File Explorer]

    Fix the behavior of creating new Excel file with [View in File Explorer]


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business にて [エクスプローラーで表示] 機能を利用した際に、エクスプローラー上で Excel ファイルを新規作成すると、作成したファイルが一定期間、自分の名前でロックされてしまう制限について修正を要望します。
    上記事象はローカル上で作成したファイルをエクスプローラー上にドラッグ アンド ドロップすることで回避できますが、Excel ファイル以外では発生しないために混乱が生じます。
    同期クライアントでも本事象が発生しないため、同期ができない環境においても同様の手順で利用ができるよう機能の早期修正を要望します。

    When we work with files with [View in File Explorer] at OneDrive for Business, we are facing the restriction that when new Excel file is created on the explorer, the file is locked with the author name for a certain period.

    We can avoid this restriction with creating the file on the computer and drag and drop it on the explorer. However, we don’t see…

  6. The management of devices that is able to sync or even log in

    I sometimes forget to log out the onedrive at other computers. Is there any way to log out it remotely? It will be great if the devices can be managed. User can manage which device can sync and which can not. And even force them to log out.

  7. View/Report on files with multiple versions

    It's important for us to know if there are multiple versions of files so that we can manage them correctly. Currently you have to inspect each file to see if there are additional versions kept. To be able to filter on these on have a column displaying this information would be a good start

  8. Encryption at rest for personal onedrive

    Please please enable encryption at rest for personal onedrive accounts too. This is the only thing missing here. I will be forced to move to Dropbox if encryption at rest is not available for onedrive personal

  9. Allow Office 365 business users to assign part of the 1 TB business Onedrive to their private Onedrive account.

    I have 2 onedrive accounts: a business onedrive account and a private one. It should be possible to use part of my business 1 TB for my private account (I need about 100 GB private).

    Because my PC has Office 365 already from my work subscription then Microsoft forces me to move my private cloud data to Google. I won't buy Office 365 a second time for my computer and no option to get or buy 100 GB for my privat outlook account.

  10. Saving in OneDrive phone app should be accessible in OneDrive on my laptop. Why doesn't it share between both platforms?

    When I save something in OneDrive on my phone, why can't I find or access the same document in OneDrive on my computer? I thought that was the point.

  13. Allow saving open OneDrive document offline when MFA expires

    PLEASE ALLOW USERS TO SAVE ONEDRIVE FILES OFFLINE WHEN THEY CAN'T APPROVE A MFA REQUEST.
    If multifactor authentication expires while working on a file saved on OneDrive, it won't be possible to save the file in any other offline location without approving the MFA. "File > Save As" path keeps on trying to connect to server and won't allow for saving the file in a different place (Excel in my case).

  17. Allow Folder exclusion in SharePoint MIgration tool

    I am using Microsoft SharePoint migration tool for migrating contents from FIle Server to each user OneDrive. Tool seems to working perfect.

    During the migration I realized there should be option to exclude the specific folder. For example In my case most of the users has "BackUp" which we do not want to migrate to OneDrive.

    Is this new feature possible in next version of SharePoint Migration tool?

  19. Report on what version of OneDrive users are connecting with

    A report that lists the user's UPN as well as the version of the sync client they are connected with would be extremely useful. With this report we could easily identify users that are still using the old sync client so we can target them for upgrading to the newest client.

  20. Add owner UPN column to OneDrive for Business usage report

    Currently only the owner display name and url of the user's OneDrive site is available in the OneDrive usage report. I use this report to then tie the information in to data that we have only in our internal reporting systems to gain insight into how OneDrive is being used, where it is being underused, and how users are sharing files. There is a script that can get the UPN from the url of the OneDrive site but there are hundreds of sites where the url's listed in the report end in .com1 and there are no emails in our…
