  1. Control internal and external shared links

    I want to be able to control automatically all shared links in the organization by "setting" an expiration date. Actually we use a script the use Graph. They inspect all shared links in the Graph Delta items collection and:
    destroy all external shared links if they are 7 days old for external shared
    destroy all internal shared links if they are 30 old and resend an automatic invitation to "poke" both person: the sender and the receiver. Internal shared links can be use with our 6 emails domains.
    be able to monitoring all shared activity by group (user and AD…

  2. (DCR) modify the behavior of how the data is stored after a user selects “stop backup” on an ad\hoc basis

    Issue:
    • When you stop the backup of any of your known folders, the files stay in the OneDrive folder instead of being moved to the original folder location.
    • The message you get is not very clear for a non-technical user, which will make them think they are losing their files by stopping the backup.

    We would like to either make OneDrive to move the files back to the original location. [ definitely would like to push for this option.

    Or if it’s not possible due to design / change complexity… To provide a more user friendly message, indicating…

  5. 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.

  6. Granting Limited Read Access to OneDrive

    Need to be able to grant former employee's OneDrive to manager, but not with full access as site collection. Read only access to sharepoint onedrive does not appear to work. When manager logs in they see any empty file structure.

  9. Office file collaboration needs more granular policy

    Please allow us to deploy a policy that will check/uncheck the option for File collaboration in the Office tab. Current policy only allow either to "check" and show the Office tab, or "uncheck" but hide the office tab.

    We want to have option to "uncheck" by default but still show the Office tab so user can "check" the option if they wish to

  11. Prevent users from changing the location of their OneDrive folder does not work with ADMX

    Prevent users from changing the location of their OneDrive folder option in the admx is not working. The admx makes the keys reg_sz and and onedrive does not react on that. If ik make the policy settings with preverences and use the docuemtned reg-dword. it works.

  13. It is very difficult and non-intuitive to make a shared file "view only" instead of "can edit". This needs to be fixed

    Make it easier to designate shared files "view only" instead of "can edit". This really needs to be fixed. It takes multiple tries because it is very non-intuitive at present.

  14. Shared Links sent to guest users require #EXT#

    Sending OneDrive links to a user that has existing guest access in MS Teams. Access seems to be granted to "EXAMPLE_domain.com#EXT#@OURTENANT.com" instead of "EXAMPLE@domain.com". User A enters their correct email address (which is entered accurately by User B who sent the link) and is greeted with "We couldn't find an account with that username." Users A & B have no way to know why error appears.

  18. 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. Share expiration days should be separate per type of share

    I wanted to be able to expire a shared link with "Anyone with the link" for a certain # of days, but I did not want that expiration to apply to internal users whom I have granted permissions with via "specific people".

    This would help limit the risk and force owners to review their share. External users would have to re-request access after a certain # of days if they still need it.

    The better option would be to be able to expire shares per user but if this is too granular, I would settle for being able to expire…
