  1. Move Application Folders to dedicated subfolder

    There is no dedicated folder where applications can store their files.
    Some use the top folder, other the 'Documents' folder
    but the top folder should be relatively clean and user oriented
    whilst documents should be mainly maintainted with user content

    hence the suggestion to provide an dedicated folder for such items.
    Some thing like Applications Files,
    it could be placed under the top folder or the Documents folder

  2. Let us use alternate libraries from the default "Documents"

    Inside Onedrive for Business, we are currently able to go to "Site Contents" and add additional libraries, which currently works for integrations with other products such as Dynamics 365, however we have been told that alternate libraries inside OneDrive are being deprecated and will no longer be supported.
    This decision to deprecate alternate libraries should be reversed for several reasons including the fact that it contradicts the existing limitations on the number of items that can exist in a single library.
    Let us continue using alternate libraries inside OneDrive for Business, as we need this to continue being supported going…

  3. Allow us to export [Statistics for Files] of OneDrive for Business

    Allow us to export [Statistics for Files] of OneDrive for Business

    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    現在の動作において、OneDrive for Business の [ファイルの統計情報] のエクスポート機能が実装されていないことを確認しております。
    代替方法として、管理者側から Office 365 監査ログの検索結果をエクスポートすることが可能ですが、
    ユーザー単位でも [ファイルの統計情報] のエクスポートを可能とする機能の実装を希望します。

    I would like to see the feature to export [Statistics for Files] of OneDrive for Business for each user.
    Exporting Office 365 audit logs by admins is working as a workaround, but it would be great if exporting [Statistics for Files] of each user is available as well.

  4. 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.

  6. Deletion of OneDrive message to managers logic on timer job

    The job that runs when a user leaves the company, and their account has been disabled, needs to include some logic. Before a email is ever sent to a manager, there should be verification that there is data in the OneDrive. I don't know how many times, a manager has received a message regarding a OneDrive, only to find out there isn't any documents in the OneDrive account.

    This creates a lot of wasted time by a manager, legal hold, and our IT staff. Only to find out there isn't any information to worry about. This can't be a hard…

  7. 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.

  8. 从电脑上删除文件夹同步优化

    当我在我的电脑上删除了一个文件夹,然后去回收站看的时候是一个文件一个文件删除的,如果我文件夹下面文件过多,这将对我整理回收站/或者从回收站恢复文件是很不友好的。

    希望可以和网页端一样,删除文件夹之后,回收站里面只是一个文件夹。这将会更友好

  12. 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.

  14. Set or change default timezone and region for all users

    There should be the ability to set the timezone and region for all users in a tenant at the admin level.

    At the moment the timezone and region at set to US which makes no sense when the Office 365 tenant is set different.
    It results in the dates being displayed in the wrong format in Excel online documents.

    It's unreasonable to assume a user will go and change this setting.

  17. 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!

  18. 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.

  20. Turn off virus detection for Office 365

    n my work, I have to analyse lots of file, maybe they contain virus or malicious software,
    but onedrive client just block it and I have to login onedrive.com and download it mannualy.

    I have searched everywhere in the "Office 365 admin center",
    why there is not a option to turn off the virus detection?

    I have also tried the gragh API and can't download it either, just "malicious detected" returned when I request the download url.
