  5. User deletion should remove access for any shared files/folders

    An employee leaves the company and his user is removed from the Microsoft 365 admin center through Active Directory synchronization.

    Due the OneDrive retention settings the content is still available for the defined period and can be accessed or restored by using PowerShell.

    During the retention period other users are still able to access any shared content in OneDrive (sharing links still active).

    A solution is necessary if the company requires that shared content should not be accessible if the user leaves the company. Or when the OneDrive is moved to the site collection recycle bin users realize late that…

  7. Different policies for different Group of users based on AD Groups

    Onedrive admin center should allow configuration of different policies and to allow it to be applied on different users and groups as one size doesnt fit all users.

  8. Correct login region accuracy and send activity sign in details on email for every login

    Always accessing the web to search and then see the sign-in details and activity log is cumbersome. Thereby it would be better if Microsoft OneDrive itself send the login details like Date and time of logging in, Device details used for signing in, IP Address of the device and location of sign in and login session details at sign out.

    I have also noticed that the location of logging in is not that accurate for example if a user of a particular country say India logs in to his account from a particular place of a particular city of a…

  11. When a UPN is updated, support updating sharing links or redirecting the old links

    When a UPN is updated, it also updates the URL to the users OneDrive for Business. Any sharing links for files in OneDrive for Business immediately break. Most other products (including the sync client) automatically fix themselves when this change takes place.

    Please add a way for to somehow manage an update to these sharing links when the UPN is changed. This could be automatically updating them or implementing a redirect to anybody/product that tries to access OneDrive sharing links is automatically redirected to the new URL post UPN change.

  13. Regarding the item retention policy

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    アイテム保持ポリシーについて
    Regarding the item retention policy


    ■Description(内容):
    アイテム保持ポリシーの設定について、保持と削除が存在している場合、保持が優先される動作となるが、必要に応じて保持と削除のポリシーが同時に動作できるように機能の拡充を希望します。
    具体的には最終更新日時から半年が経過したアイテムは削除されるが、最終更新日時から一年間はアイテム保管ライブラリで保持する動作を実現したい。
    When using item retention policies, in cases where both a deletion and retention policy exists at the same time, the retention policy takes precedence, but we would like for both the retention and deletion policies to work at once.
    Basically, we would like items to be deleted 6 months after their last updated date, but for items to be held in the item retention library for one year from their last date of update.

  14. OneDrive Powershell commands to manage onedrive folders

    We were hit with Ransomware. The ransomware created a txt file in all folders and subfolders within OneDrive. Unfortunately, there is no powershell command to mass delete all files from all user folders.

  15. Custom storage location for on-premise OneDrive/SharePoint

    It would be great if we can configure custom storage locations for OD4B files that are integrated into a SharePoint farm. For instance, if my farm is in Texas and I am in Denver, my OneDrive files should be able to reside in Denver, rather than where the farm is located. If we have a bunch of offices with files local to that office, we should be able to keep the files local to those office, but use OD4B.

    This also allows for better staging for a migration to OneDrive/SharePoint online

  16. Allow one to open .MOD files in One Drive.

    JVC Everio Camcorders are still used by many folks like me.
    video files are stored on One Drive - for safe keeping as well as viewing and sharing.
    Would be great if one could view ALL video files on One Drive, including .MOD files.
    Please provide proper codec to One Drive so anyone who stores .MOD files on One Drive can open and view said files on One Drive.
    Thank you.

  18. Intelligent file management

    OneDrive should continuously monitor files to identify duplicate files and files that have not been used for a certain time. Duplicate files take more space in the cloud and on our local machines when we keep them synchronized, and more space taken means less space available and eventually leads to the addition of extra storage (both in data centers and locally), which leads to more energy wasted, etc. Files that we have not used in a while could be candidate to be kept in the cloud only. Why perform this manually when OneDrive could give us a nice monthly report…

  19. Allow for disabling of Versioning, and decrease lower bound threshold of versions to significantly reduce my data usage and save money

    The automatic non optional versioning is making me use more data than I need. This is the same for many other companies.

    Give this option so customers can decide what to value, space or back up.

  20. NOT SYNCING EVERYTHING ON ONEDRIVE

    I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT WANT TO USE GOOGLE CHROME. I HAVE DELETED GOOGLE CHROME FROM MY DEVICE AS IT COMPLETELY SLOWED DOWN MY SYSTEM/DEVICE ENTIRELY. VERY FRUSTRATING AND ANNOYING. TOO MUCH TIME IS WASTED WITH CHROME.
