  1. More stats required for sign-ins into OneDrive for security and statistical gathering, information on specifics from Mobile, PC, Browsers.

    More stats required for sign-ins into OneDrive for security and statistical gathering, information on specifics from mediums such as Mobile, PC, Browsers. Individual results required.

    Also, logins and logouts are not gathered, as once a user is signed into any device, they are always signed in... defeats the purposes slightly here. it would be good to see daily logons.

  2. Increase the free storage

    Giving only 5 GB for free on OneDrive is the worst idea. Google Drive offers 15 GB for free then why Microsoft's OneDrive doesn't? If 15 GB is not possible then give at least 10 GB of free storage! 5 GB is not sufficient for any one. Also Google Drive offers unlimited photos and videos upload on high quality, OneDrive also compromises in that part too! So sad to see how world's most richest man consume his money on his own fans & customers.

  3. Password Protection on Folders

    it is not that hard to protect specific folders with a passcode, other cloud storage providers let you do so

  4. Centrally manage / easier Sharepoint syncing

    I find that trying to train users on syncing Sharepoint has been EXTREMELY challenging, more so than creating apps, configuring Sharepoint or even landing men on the moon for some reason... It would be handy to have a console where I can say right that bunch of users, matter what Device they are on (as long as it is Windows 10), they get these libraries synced. I have generally always got 1 site that everyone accesses (or the vast majority) and it would be good to just tick a box and whenever a new laptop is added, as soon as…

  5. Prevent the ability to delete the location being synced in explorer until syncing has stopped.

    When a user selects the location they are syncing in the explorer navigation pane they should not be able to delete this folder or selecting delete should automatically stop the sync and then remove the folder. Currently pressing delete prompts them that the folder will be permanently removed from their computer but doesn't let them know that the Onedrive sync client will go-ahead and delete all the contents of that folder in SharePoint as well.

  6. Allow us to filter audit logs indicating only operations at explorer

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Office 365 監査ログの絞り込み先の対象を増やして欲しい
    Allow us to filter audit logs indicating only operations at explorer


    ■Description(内容):
    Office365 監査ログにて、OneDrive for Business を対象に検索をしても、ログが大量に表示されます。
    エクスプローラーで表示した画面で操作したファイルのログのみを絞り込んで検索できるよう、機能の拡充を要望します。

    I would like to see the feature that allow us to filter audit logs indicating only operations at explorer.
    At current setting, audit logs for OneDrive for Business is really large, and we need more filter to specify what we really want to check.

  7. Adjust the notification message generated when multiple files are moved or deleted.

    Ability to adjust the message "Heads up! We noticed that you recently deleted a large number of files from a site". Also the ability to set a minimum number of files before the alert is triggered.

    The message is causing confusion when users move files as they are get picked up as being deleted.

    I would like to see the feature to change the default setting for opening files at OneDrive for Business from “Edit” mode to “Read Only” in bulk for entire tenant.

    In current setting, when we open items which is in OneDrive for Business at Office Online, it will open as “Edit” mode and users allowed only to change the setting…

  9. Option to fully ignore symlinks (symbolic links)

    I would normally upload source code for various projects to synchronize between my desktop and laptop however there are plenty of vendor packages which are redundant that can be symlinked and/or updated via the Internet.

    Having an option to ignore symlinked directories within onedrive would solve this issue quite easily at near zero development cost on your end. The only gotcha is synching this option between all logged in onedrive instances.

  10. Allow administrators to check sync status of each user for OneDrive for Business

    Allow administrators to check sync status of each user for OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business 同期クライアントを様々な地域で展開するにあたって、組織内のユーザーの同期状態を管理者が確認できる機能を提供してほしい。

    同期できていない PC がある場合、管理者が即座に把握し対処できるよう、同期エラーが発生した際に通知を送る機能やエラーの履歴をクライアントに残すような機能を追加してほしい。

    We would like you to allow administrators to check sync status of each users in the organization for deploying OneDrive for Business sync client for users in various sites.

    It would be better if we have the notification alert or error logs on the client side when there is sync error. So that Administrator will be able to see the machine with failing sync and work for it.

    Thank you for…

  11. Protect against accidental deletions with a "permanent" file attribute.

    Create a file attribute called "permanent" so that a OneDrive file/folder can only be deleted online with a browser, not from a OneDrive client device.

  13. OneDrive Personal - Encryption at rest

    Virtually all other cloud storage providers offer encryption at rest and OneDrive for Business does too. There seems no reason why OneDrive Personal users shouldn't also be afforded the exact same level of security, especially those of us paying a subscription for the service. Perhaps it could be made an additional benefit of an Office 365 subscription if the desire is not there to offer it to free users. However, with Microsoft's resources and apparent desire to champion security of user data, encryption at rest for OneDrive Personal feels a bizarre missing piece to the puzzle.

  15. Tags for files and folders

    It is a 21st century. Restrictions for folders length hierarchy is not so good. Navigate the long sub folders is not so good. Puts tags into files/folders names isn't good. Enable tags for files and folders for easily find them using just search and tags!

  17. manager

    Change the OneDrive retention and deletion process..
    OneDrive deletion process should be disabled by default. -> "If a manager is specified for the deleted account, the manager will receive an email telling them they have access to the OneDrive, and that the OneDrive will be deleted at the end of the retention period."
    The manager field is in Active Directory, on users objects.

  18. Ability for OneDrive Admins to Flag Folders as "Do Not Sync"

    Ability for OneDrive Administrators to flag some folders in individual users cloud based OneDrive for Business libraries as “do not sync” so that the end-user cannot check them in the Next Gen Sync Client (NGSC) for synchronization to their local machine. The NGSC should honor that attribute and show the folder as “greyed out” – possibly with a hover over pop-up message stating that the folder cannot be synchronized locally because of IT policy.

    Options should be available for bulk application to all users OneDrive folders by specifying a folder name (or folder name pattern) to be flagged as non-synchronizable,…

  20. Prevent Download - Shared files - eg: .m4a files

    The option to prevent download of shared files only works on a select few file formats. If i upload an m4a file to onedrive and set it so no one can download it, users are still able to download the file.

    Google Drive have got it right - files that cannot be played in the browser cannot be downloaded to the user's device.
