  1. Lag on ODFB usage reports

    The ODFB reports on Admin portal usually have a lag of 2 days, can you do something about it so that an organization can pull real time data? Atleast for a targeted set of users, so that one can identify how many files for a user have synced. A lag of 2 hours is okay but 2 days is really too much.

    Each report has a date for when this report was generated. The reports usually reflect a 24 to 48 hour latency from time of activity. Note: At times there may be…

  4. A businessplan for one user and at least 5 TB of storage

    Small datadriven businesses still often need more than 1 TB of storage, but it is not viable to pay for 5 userlicenses.

  5. Azure report from OneDrive

    We have company secrets in drawing files. I need a report from Azure to show all users with a certain file extension in their OneDrive. I would like the filename, file extension, date added to OneDrive. Also a option to email this report from the console.

  6. Refine policy control for file exclusions via MDM / GPO / Portal

    Please consider adding an option to control file-type exclusions at a level where we can apply different policies to different groups , device types.

    I'll explain , currently our tenant is shared for a large enterprise with a few subsidiaries running off the tenant , we were planning to utilize OneDrive redirection of known folders (Documents / Desktop) , however due to reported problems with PST's and large files , we hoped to exclude OST & PST files from Onedrive.

    However exclude settings appear to be tenant wide , it would be preferred to set this policy for a selected…

  7. OneDrive Restore Settings, make it an option for it to be disabled by Admin

    OneDrive Restore Settings, make it an option for it to be disabled by Admin. This is to avoid end users mistakenly restore their whole sites and sync to their local folders and causes document lost.

  8. Encrypt on local hard drive

    As a organization we’d like the ability to have the whole local OneDrive for Business folder encrypted, so that even if another administrator logs on, they wouldn’t be able to access the data. We can enable bitlocker for the hard drive but we cannot prevent the scenario with local admins, as they can just take ownership of the user profile folder.

  9. Increase Storage Limit After Each Subscription Renovation

    It would be great to have our storage limit increased with each subscription renovation, maybe 30 ~ 50% per year?

  10. Block Up/Downloading Specific File Types

    The "OneDrive for Business Deny List of File Types for Sync" feature was recently released, however it prevents files from being uploaded only when using the OneDrive Sync client. The same files can still be uploaded using the Web View. This means Administrators STILL DON'T have the ability to define a list of file types that will be actively blocked from up/downloading, while Microsoft if claiming so.

  12. Transfer ownership of a shared folder

    How to transfer the ownership of a shared folder? I created and shared one, and want to leave all the files with my friend and disconnect myself from the folder. I want her to become the owner (the folder becoming a natural part of her OneDrive collection). How do I (or we) do that ?

    Last week we announced a new feature called Personal Vault that will be available soon for OneDrive consumer accounts. See this blog post for more details.

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/blog/2019/06/25/onedrive-personal-vault-added-security-onedrive-additional-storage/

    We have no plans to bring Personal Vault to our Commercial customers at this time, but continue to make investments in advanced security features that are unique to the Commercial service.

  15. When deleting and O365 Buisness user, make it easy to move the files/folders to another user.

    When an employee that uses OneDrive for Business leaves the organization there should be an option to move their files to another employee (superior, replacement, temporary, etc.).

    Instead of having to download and then reupload the files to another user, it should be an option during the user deletion to move the files.

    We recently added the ability to transfer ownership to another user when deleting a user’s account from AAD from the M365 admin portal. If no entry is provided, the default will transfer to the manager. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/retention-and-deletion

    The manager or newly assigned owner will have the ability to sync that content or download and then move to a shared library or their own OneDrive.

  16. Remote wipe of personal OneDrive

    Add options to manage computers connected to the account, allowing to delete all content from a lost computer (force remove/delete is required).

    Can you please tell us more about what you are looking for? What do you mean by “zero knowledge cloud storage”? Thank you.

  19. Automatically delete downloaded files upon signing out from OneDrive app

    I think it would be important for OneDrive team to enable automatic deletion of downloaded files upon signing out from OneDrive app.

    First, the current OneDrive's approach may not be in line with EU General Data Protection Regulation (requiring data protection by design). Second, in this area, OneDrive can have a competitive disadvantage against Google Drive's File Stream app.

  20. Have an alternative means to contact the Onedrive support team other than the 'email'.

    Currently there seems to be only one way to get in touch with the Onedrive support team. I can log in to onedrive.com to write down what the problem is in the feedback form, but it does not get sent for some reason.

    Shouldn't there be an alternative mode of getting support in case the probem users experience also affects their ability to get support by sending 'feedback' via their account?
