  1. Forget about features, first get the basics working

    Forget about new features, first get the basics working. Looks like the service is severely flawed on fundamentals. Even email to support feature is not working for customers to post their problems. The dialog is just stuck in progress while posting the message.

    I have many files in my One Drive that show up but do not open. I am afraid if I have lost critical data because I trusted on One Drive. Please restore all the files immediately.

    OneDrive や SharePoint Online で表示される組織名称の変更について
    Changing the organization name displayed on OneDrive and SharePoint Online


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive 同期アプリなどで同期をした際など、OneDrive - 組織名 の名所で同期フォルダーが作成されます。
    1 つのテナントで複数のグループ会社で使用するため、表示を個別で変更できるよう機能の拡充を希望します。

    When you sync with the OneDrive app, a folder is created in the “OneDrive – OrganizationName” location.
    Since we have a number of company groups in our tenant, we would like to be able to change these individually.

  4. Developers. Ask the question. If you had discovered the formula of how to change lead to gold would you entrust this formula to OneDrive?

    If you would not then how do you expect others to entrust their secrets? And yes, everyone has secrets.

  5. Better explanation of end-to-end encryption "implied" but not described explicitly as being part of Personal Vault.

    Bitlocker security for Personal Vault - make it user cloud bitlocked drive just as local drive.

  7. You need to put out a disclaimer notice ASAP!

    Yesterday I rec'd over 40 calls supposedly from "Apple Inc" telling me my "cloud" was causing a severe security risk to my Apple products. Altho I KNEW it was a scam (because I own no Apple products), others might not. Found out today that many other friends also rec'd those same annoying repeat calls all day long & even into the night until around 8 pm yesterday. I blocked every number they used to call me, but they would then just roll over to another number for their robo-dialer to use to constantly harass me (as they did to my…

  12. Sync SharePoint sync settings

    It appears that when you sync a SharePoint online library the folders you sync are only applied to that computer.

    If you log in to a second (or new) computer you have to replicate every sync manually. This could take forever to replicate if you are syncing a large number of sites/libraries.

  13. Expire

    File expiration date: user defined expiration date of the file on onedrive. For example, product offers which user may want to get back to; or saved emails which may not be relevant or important to hold on to.
    Absolves the user from recurring purging of files.

  16. Variable time-out times for OneDrive Vault

    The automatic time-out for OneDrive Vault works great for work from phones and tablets, and while traveling, but when I'm sitting at my desk at home working on my Windows-10 desktop computer, I often need to work with the files in the Vault for an hour or more. Please allow an option (perhaps on the Open Vault request form) to specify how long we want the Vault to be open.

    I would like to see the feature to “increase storage space” if there are unused files for certain period (specified period) at sync folder automatically.
    At current feature, we need to enable file on demand for OneDrive for Business and save items on the local to make more space for hard disk with “increase storage space” option.

  19. Disable Pause/Stop Sync for OneDrive for Business

    Disable Pause/Stop Sync for OneDrive for Business

    This is critical as some of our users are pausing the sync when they should not be. They dont realize this replaced folder redirection and if they are not syncing new data it will be lost in the event of a computer failure.

    This ensures the less likely hood of user data being lost.

  20. Allow Admins to force sync only select Known Folders

    Enable Admins to force only selective know folders IE. force the my Documents folder to sync but not the My Pictures or Desktops folders.

    The known folder synce (Backup) would be great for us to use but we do not want the clutter that will come with syncing Desktop or My pictures
