  1. Open Source Code with real privacy needed

    Need a more secure data privacy system. With Windows 10 telemetry and microsoft's automatic back-doors into your system, ALL your "private" data is actually not private at all.

  2. Technician role for Sync Admin Report

    Either lower the role needed, or create an alternative "Technician view" for the new Sync Admin Report for someone without the Global Reader (or some higher) role.
    Ideally, we want those with a helpdesk or technician role to be able to see current sync status on a per computer basis with a field for user as well. The current O365 health reporting only shows user. The main workflow intended is for device replacement or system restores, so we can see data is backed up before proceeding and without expecting this burden to be on the end user.

    If we need…

  5. Merge all OneDrive/ SharePoint into Office App Admin Center

    *** the Office ecosystem is pulled together more, allow for all applications (OneDrive, Teams, M365 Apps, Office Add-ins) to be manage from the Office App Admin Center so that enterprise teams can have a central location for managing all aspects of M365 within an organization. Right now, to deploy an add-in you need someone with Global or Exchange Admin rights when that should be with the Office app admin role. Same with managing OneDrive client settings and policies. Retention and restoration should be moved to the Office App Admin Center.

  6. Allow Export of OneDrive Details from App Admin Center

    Currently in preview there is an option to see all details for the OneDrive sync client in the App Admin Center but no method of exporting the data as a whole or individually. It would be great if we could get an option to export the data with the error types so that in case of any error, it can be resolve where we would know the issue with detail in an exported csv file.

    Currently, when copying a file or folder, the fixed access permission levels are not copied with them. Since it takes some work to configure them again, please add a way to include the access permission levels when copying.

  8. Onedrive Share Links Should not be affected by UPN Name Change

    We had some issues recently due to this: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/upn-changes

    IMO it should get fixed very soon, as name changes are very common due to marriage etc.

    It is not practical in productive environment!

  9. Personal Vault in OneDrive needs better access support

    I'm currently having issues with my Personal Vault and wish there's someone from Microsoft OneDrive who can further assist me faster vs. getting transfer around, and still no one able to help or know what the problem is.

    The issue started when I could not send a code to my email to get access to our company's Personal Vault so I've decided to change the security information from Email to Phone Number hoping that it would fix the issue. However, that made it worse. Unbeknownst to me, there's a waiting period of 30 DAYS for the changes to take effect…

  10. Provide a way to perform "Add shortcut to My files" on behalf of a user

    Sometimes we have the need to pre-provision folders for users in both IT admin and developer scenarios. We'd like to see a programmatic method for setting up these shortcut for users. I'm in the process of migrating 250 users into our tenant from a company we acquired. Through the process of restructuring the shared libraries and folders we realized the need to setup these shortcuts on behalf of users to ensure a smooth transition.

  11. For Netherlands : allow Digid for accesscontrol

    I have a suggestion on access control:

    In the Netherlands government web access e.g. to fill in your tax are controlled by Digid. This is a secure system which almost all inhabitants of the Netherlands use.

    The advantage of Digid are that :
    - If a user looses there credentials then they can contact the Dutch government to get your credentials back.
    - Almost all residents of the Netherlands have a digid account.
    - It is secure.

    It is already used by e.g. Dutch medical insurance companies to allow web access for there clients.

    You can get more details on…

    Notifications when the owner of a folder on OneDrive for Business has their account deleted

    管理者が退職者のアカウントを削除する際、管理者は OneDrive for Business の他ユーザーへの共有については管理をしていないため、共有先ユーザーへ通知をすることはおこなっていません。
    そのため、管理者が共有元ユーザーのアカウントを削除をすると、共有先ユーザーは告知なしに今まで利用していたフォルダーやファイルを利用することが出来なくなります。
    OneDrive for Business においてユーザーが削除される場合、今までに共有をおこなったことのあるユーザーへ一斉通知を送信するようにできないでしょうか。
    一斉通知が送信できれば、共有元ユーザーが削除される前に通知を送信し、必要なファイルを移動させることができるので、機能の実装を希望いたします。

    We have a specific user sharing a folder on OneDrive for Business with many people.
    When an administrator deletes the account of someone who has left the company, since the administrator does not manage sharing with other users on OneDrive for Business, the users with which the deleted user’s files were being shared are not notified of the change.

  16. Kill the creation of "Create shared library" feature in OneDrive for Business

    This "Create shared library" feature in OneDrive for Business is more confusing and troublesome than helpful. This should be removed and let OneDrive for Business to be used for its intended purpose that is - use OneDrive for Business for storing and managing personal work related documents. That's it.

    Here are the problems / Concerns:

    • When you create a shared library, it is basically creating a brand new SharePoint Online team site. So this shared library is not a Document Library from user's existing OneDrive for Business. OneDrive is just mapping the newly created SharePoint site's Document Library in that…

  17. o365 Admins are unable to gain access to a user's OneDrive if they go over storage allotment for any reason.

    This can occur due to either their license being changed, or an unforeseen issue causing their OneDrive to fill up. In any case, when this occurs, it becomes impossible to gain access to that OneDrive unless you either modify their license, or storage allotment to no longer break this feature.

  18. Give access to all 6TB of storage

    Let us access all 6TB that come with the Microsoft Office 365 Family Plan. Let the main user (who is PAYING for it) allocate the storage amongst users.

    I get the idea from a Sales point of view. That 6TB looks great - until I realized I can’t access it all. I’m the main user, but only have 1TB, so now I have to pay for more storage. It’s really hard to swallow when I’m paying for 5TB I can’t access. Give me even 2TB more. Something. And I’m not interested in setting up 5 fake accounts to do this.…

  19. Voice code word: TruSt 'keeping the fakes away and stopping abuse.'

    Voice enchanced security with a secret word of the users choosing setup by them will help keep those who are not authorized out.

    And if any possible change the user could be allowed to call or email the company 2 call them and ask for that secret code in which they would only know and they could be able to do so in private when they are alone To keep their privacy secure and update each time there is an error or problem so they can know, there accounts are safe from the fraudsters that perform account take over

  20. Allow option to allow "Receive Files" while limiting "Share" level access.

    Currently in order to enable "Receive Files" on OD, tenant permissions have to be set to "Anyone with this link...". This is not an acceptable level for sharing in our organization, but we would like to be able to receive files securely. Please allow up to set permissions for incoming files to be different from sharing links.
