  2. 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.

  3. Function for users without an admin license to check file access histories

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    管理者ライセンスがないユーザーでファイルのアクセス履歴の確認する機能について
    Function for users without an admin license to check file access histories


    ■Description(内容):
    アクセス履歴を確認するユーザーに管理者ライセンスの付与をすることは社内ポリシー上できないため、管理者ライセンスを付与をせず、動画をアップロードしたユーザーがアクセス履歴を確認する機能の追加をご希望

    Since in order for a user to check file access histories, they need an admin license which we cannot grant due to our internal policies, please add a way for users to check the access history for videos they uploaded without having been granted an admin license.

  4. 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.

  5. Storage

    On our subscription, we have 6TB - 1TB for 6 people each. We are only using 2, but there is no way to combine storage so it would be 2TB on one account, and the rest are 1TB each, now only 5 accounts.

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. For security, allow per-folder setting of giving off an alert and halting file-sharing when wrong files are uploaded to OD4B

    ■Title(件名):

    アラートを出してファイルの共有の停止をする動作をフォルダー単位で設定できる機能の拡充希望

    To prevent leakage of confidential information, allow per-folder setting of alerts and halting file-sharing when wrong files are uploaded to OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):

    現在 DLP ポリシーを適用することでファイル名や列のプロパティ値などを対象としてファイルを監視し、該当のファイルがアップロードされた際にアラートを出してファイルの共有の停止させることができる。

    また、保持ラベルを合わせて使用することでファイル内の文字列を対象にファイル監視し、同様の設定ができる。

    しかしながら、タイマージョブの実行までに時間がかかるために、ファイルがアップロードされてから共有が停止されるまでにかなりの時間差が生ずる。

    加えて、DLP ポリシーはサイト コレクション単位での設定のため、フォルダー単位での細かい制御ができない。

    機密情報が漏洩するのを防ぐため、指定した文字列を含むファイルがアップロードされた際に、通知メールを送信しファイルの共有を停止する動作を、フォルダー単位で設定できるよう、機能拡充を希望する。

    Currently, by applying DLP policies, it is possible to monitor files for file names, property values ​​of columns, etc., and issue an alert and stop sharing the file when a specified file is uploaded .

    Also, the same can be done by, in combination with retention labels, monitoring the file for the character strings within.

    However, since it takes time for the timer job to…

  17. Index items in the recycle bin for eDiscovery

    Currently in OneDrive: "The Recycle Bin is not indexed and therefore unavailable for searching. As a result, an eDiscovery search can't find any Recycle Bin content on which to place a hold."

    This seems to be a huge and glaring issue as people intuitively would believe eDiscovery results run against OneDrive would encompass all areas. It does not make sense that an investigation would miss a critical piece of evidence because someone had deleted it. It seems probable that people may delete data they do not want found, so it is counterintuitive that this location is not indexed. This should…

  18. Either provide all Indian languages or keep English in country option.

    I just saw that in the settings the country option is written 'Bharat' in Hindi. I would call my country India and the preferred language would be English. For a South Indian like me, Hindi is not my mother tongue, its Malayalam. So I would like it to be returned to 'India' in English.
