  1. allow admins to get a report of users that utilize the PC Folder Backup feature of OneDrive

    This will help admins track which users are using the feature so it can be implemented better. Management and deployment will be easy as you will only need to contact users that are not using the feature and avoid manually checking each user one by one.

  2. Delete and download button shouldn’t be together in the menu options.

    It is easy to accidentally press the delete button when you are downloading something.

  3. Make it possible to permanently delete larger file amounts

    Due to GDPR regulations (or in other cases) it is sometimes a requirement to remove files from OneDrive permanently. This includes removal in recycle bin and second-level recycle bin as well.

    Currently there is virtually NO way to do this for a large number or files in a complex folder structure due to the following limitations:

    1.) Deleting the files themselves
    1.a) Webclient doesn't allow to delete folders without removing the contents first - an painstaking work with complex folder structures
    1.b) OneDriveSync goes completely fubar when one tries to delete a structure of several 100.000 files in a few…

  5. Keeping Onedrive Personal

    Sharing should only be for business not personal its too risky. it would be nice to be able to see what mobile devices are logged into onedrive along with the option to remove, report and block. But the owner of onedrive can not be seen or blocked.

  7. Merge multiple one drive accounts to use the total amount of storage

    Hi,

    I have 5 OneDrive business accounts with 1TB each - total of 5TB.

    My question is, Is there a Microsoft's official way to merge 5 or more OneDrive business accounts to use the total amount of storage?

    Regards

    Imran Shaikh

  8. Please add Unlimited Personal Vault features on a Storage Only package because we already bought MS Office (Not 365).

    Some people such as me, want to upgrade to get a personal vault feature, but we cannot buy 356 personal packages because we already have the Office app.

    I want to buy an OneDrive storage solution only (Maybe 1TB that's okay) but please include the personal vault without Office.
    I bet that will be attracting more customer from other cloud solutions like Google Drive or Dropbox.

    If the “Block syncing of specific file types” setting is used in the OneDrive admin center, items with file extensions matching the blocked type will show an error in the sync client.
    Please make it possible to have these files be excluded from syncing without showing errors.

  14. User deletion should remove access for any shared files/folders

    An employee leaves the company and his user is removed from the Microsoft 365 admin center through Active Directory synchronization.

    Due the OneDrive retention settings the content is still available for the defined period and can be accessed or restored by using PowerShell.

    During the retention period other users are still able to access any shared content in OneDrive (sharing links still active).

    A solution is necessary if the company requires that shared content should not be accessible if the user leaves the company. Or when the OneDrive is moved to the site collection recycle bin users realize late that…

  15. Different policies for different Group of users based on AD Groups

    Onedrive admin center should allow configuration of different policies and to allow it to be applied on different users and groups as one size doesnt fit all users.

  16. Correct login region accuracy and send activity sign in details on email for every login

    Always accessing the web to search and then see the sign-in details and activity log is cumbersome. Thereby it would be better if Microsoft OneDrive itself send the login details like Date and time of logging in, Device details used for signing in, IP Address of the device and location of sign in and login session details at sign out.

    I have also noticed that the location of logging in is not that accurate for example if a user of a particular country say India logs in to his account from a particular place of a particular city of a…

  19. 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.

    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.
