  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. Add a report of users that do not have a OD4B site provisioned but have a license

    Would be nice if we could generate a report of all users that have a license for a OneDrive site but have not had a site provisioned. This list could be used with a PowerShell script to provision the sites and then create a script that automatically provisions one when a user is added to Azure AD.

  5. Allow increasing a site's quota when at capacity..

    With the current product limits, administrators are unable to manage a user's my-site quota after they have already hit quota. The solution involves contacting the end user and asking them to clear out enough content to get the site back under quota or creating a ticket to support to process the request by way of an escalation to PG. If administrators were able to bump up a user's quota while it was currently at quota we could avoid the extra steps of having to ask an end user to delete content or creating a support request, when the need to…

  6. Automatic Site/Group Joining

    Need a way for admins to automatically assign SharePoint / Group Document Libraries to sync to user OneDrive Clients. These are often used to replace old "Network Shares"

  7. Enabling expiry limit for external file sharing

    Need to have the feature of setting expiry dates for business critical data shared with external users . It is extremely disappointing that the link expiry feature is available only for ondedrive personnel users and and links shared with anonymous users. It should be otherway round

  10. Regarding the save format of OneNote file stored in OneDrive for Business

    We realized that if users changed permission from shared setting of OneNote file which is stored in OneDrive for Business, the previous opened data is not deleted properly, and users faced unexpected behavior.

    For improvement usability, we hope the feature will be implemented allow users to save OneNote files with same save format as Office client.

  11. Add an "Employee Terminated" Field to AD and Microsoft O365 Accounts

    This request would have a big impact on both Exchange administration and OneDrive administration. Historically there has not been an avenue within AD to mark an account as terminated, other than maybe changing the account description field or utilizing the Exchange Custom Attributes. So you have an employee that leaves, maybe make the description change, and disable the account. You might grant the manager access to the former employee's mailbox for a period of time, and eventually delete the user account. In prior versions of SharePoint, a disabled account might trigger the Mysite deletion process which in O365 has become…

    To prohibit users from creating the personal sites, as we navigate to SharePoint admin Center> user profile > Manage User Permission, the following three options are still displayed even though those features are no longer available.
    - Disable OneDrive
    - Follow People and Edit Profile
    - Use Tag and Notes

    For improvement of manageability, we hope you to hide those options until these features are functioned so that admins can know what features are currently…

  14. Please be sure to delete the "Documents" and "Attachments" folders.

    The 'Documents' folder and the 'Attachments' folder are created automatically. These folders are the default paths that can not be created or deleted.
    However, I do not use these folders.

    Please be sure to delete the "Documents" and "Attachments" folders.

    同期クライアントで、公開情報に記載の [同期可能なアイテム数] について、該当のアイテム数を超えたら同期ができないようにしてほしい。

    多数のアイテムを同期しているため、[同期中] [変更を処理しています] などのメッセージのまま、同期が中途半端な状態になると、PC 側とクラウド上のどちらのデータが最新かがわからなくなる。
    あいまいなままでは利用の際に困るので、アイテム数が制限事項に抵触した場合、明確に [アイテム数が多いために同期できない] などのエラー メッセージを表示させ、同期できないようにしてほしい。

    Disable syncing in sync client if “number of items that can be synced” limit, which mentioned in Microsoft official, is exceeded.

    While syncing multiple items simultaneously, we get confused either the latest data is on client or on cloud as syncing process is incomplete state with message stating “Syncing” and “Processing changes”.

    For improvement of usability and manageability, disable syncing when sync item limit is exceeded, warn users with error message “sync item limit exceeded”.

  17. Allow _vti_ in folder and file names

    One drive is used to store all sorts of file, not just productivity documents. If you want to store an eclipse work space or a website, in OFB you can't because of this restriction. This makes competing products look more attractive. Why are these blocked and can that restriction be removed?

  18. Failure to support ReFS in personal OneDrive -- as it is in OD4B - ruins admin experience

    Ideally, we could harmoniously deploy the features that separately convinced us to buy in to the Microsoft vision (M365, O365, EMS, Windows 10 Professional for Workstations and Windows 10 Enterprise). OD4B and OD worked harmoniously on NTFS volumes, OD4B works beautifully on ReFS -- but despite running on the identical sync client OD fails to support ReFS at all. OD fails to support "protect important files" on corporate devices, but recently it's announced (and we implemented) directing all those system Known Folders that populate "This PC" to reside in OD4B on ReFS. I am unsure if we're chasing your capabilities,…

  19. OneDrive storage size should not use the local Disk Drive space. Local Disk is full due to to data from OneDrive.

    My OneDrive storage is using the capacity of my local Disk Drive, so the local disk is now full. I want to make space on my local PC and make the OneDrive storage size not counting for my local disk drive. How to do this without loosing data? Local Disk Drive should not be full due to OneDrive storage usage.

  20. Possibility to check how many users decide to use KFM

    When you have prompted users to use KFM user can decide to do so or not. Currently there's no way to check how many users in organisation decided to move Windows Known Folders. This would be very useful for testing before using silently KFM.
