    Notification mail when approaching the upper storage limit on OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business の容量上限に近づいた際に既定の値として、90% を超えた場合に通知メールが送信されるが、この値を変更して、初期値のように設定したい。
    ユーザーが増えた場合そのたびに設定するのではなく初期値としての値を設定し、値を超えた場合に、OneDrive for Business の所有者および管理者に送信されるような機能が欲しい。

    By default, when going over 90% of the upper usage cap on OneDrive for Business, a notification mail is sent, but we would like to be able to change that value, and set this as a new default value.
    If new users are added, instead of having to set this value again each time, it should be set to an initially configured default, and then if that value is exceeded…

    We have enabled the Retention Policy for 7 years via https://protection.office.com/retention recently and found out there are different behavior for OneDrive for Business Web Based version and OneDrive for Desktop Application version.

    When an user is trying to delete a folder in OneDrive for Business in Web Based version, it will appears an error message when the "hold" is enabled and this is default behavior until we deleting all the files in this folder.

    However, when we tried to delete a folder in OneDrive for Business for Desktop Application, there are no error message appeared when the "hold" is enabled…

  3. admin settings to change default document open behavior

    SharePoint has setting to change the default behavioor on document open.

    Admin can choose to open in online apps or desktop apps, at the collection level, and per document library.

    OneDrive lacks such controls in the modern interface.
    Global Admin does not have an option to choose the default open behavior.
    Individual users do not have a modern interface for that. Users have to go to Classic Settings and find the option 5 or 6 clicks deep to change it, which is not user friendly.

    Proposed settings:

    OneDrive Global Admin:

    Default behavior choices:
    Open in online apps
    Open in desktop…

  4. Be able to sync shared folders in pc desktop/laptop Windows

    As a user with folders shared with me,
    I'd like to select folders from other personal onedrive accounts in my onedrive desktop app and select as many folders I want to sync with my pc,
    For a better user experience.

    As a user sharing folders,
    I'd like to select if folders that I shared cannot be sync with personal pcs with onedrive desktop app,
    For security

  5. New pricing model for six people

    New pricing model for six people so we can utilize the OneDrive only like 200GB shared between 6 family persons, and without Office365 so it can be affordable.

  6. Linking multiple accounts

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    複数アカウントの紐づきについて
    Linking multiple accounts


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive のモバイル アプリに複数のアカウントでサインインをすると、アカウント同士が紐づく。PC など別の端末でも同じアカウントでサインインをすると紐づいたアカウントまで表示されるが、これを解消するためには一旦すべての端末からすべてのアカウントをサインアウトする必要があり、非常に手間なので、紐づきを解除する機能を用意して欲しい。
    When signing in to OneDrive mobile app using multiple accounts, those accounts will get linked to each other. If the same accounts are used to sign in into other devices like PC, accounts that were linked will be displayed, but if this is to be resolved all accounts will need to sign out from every device. This takes up lots of time, so we hope that a feature to remove the links will be provided.

  10. Quota by Group

    OneDrive quotas by group. It would be great if we could create groups and set the quota for the group members based on that group. We have licensing by group in Azure so I would imagine a similar experience.

  12. Password to resume or pause syncing.

    Hi Microsoft Team,

    Good Day,

    I intent to use one drive with my team for sharing and storing the datas. as a team leader i am a bit skeptical that in case the user pauses the sync without my knowledge ,how can i prevent this?

    I have a suggestion to add an extra layer of security feature by using password to pause and sync the data from the desktop/mac.

    Please advice.

    Thank you

  19. Group Policy settings to control auto start of OneDrive

    I need Group Policy settings to control auto start of OneDrive.
    On some machines its autostart is disabled either by the user or by Windows itself. I have folder redirection setup and it doesn't work without OneDrive automatically starting.
