  2. Option to set one specific folder "Always keep on this device" in intune and GPO

    It would be great if admins can set the value "always keep on this device" for a specific folder in the OneDrive of all users in the company.

    We can use this for example to place UE-V files.

    If possible, can it be set with a GPO or Intune or both.

  4. Disable versions and set a version limit.

    Disable versions and set a version limit.


    • Set a global option that allows you to disable the versions or limit the maximum number of them, for example: 0, 3, 7 versions.

    OneDrive for Business の一覧を PowerShell コマンドレットなどで出力する際に、用途で絞り込みできるようしてほしい

  6. free

    Add a free subscription (5gb) to the Office 365 admin portal. Otherwise, you are forcing us to purchase one drive in order to use it with a work email account. This should be illegal. If we did not have an office 365 portal setup then we would otherwise be able to sign up for the free one drive account using our internal email addresses. Just add the free one drive subscription to the portal or fix this. When I try to view my products and licenses and work with one drive products in the portal it says "one drive is…

  7. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. About OneDrive sync client error detection accuracy

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):

    About OneDrive sync client error detection accuracy


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive 同期クライアントのエラーの検出機能の精度が低いため、エラーを検出しても詳細が表示されない。
    そのため、エラーが発生するたびに多岐に渡るトラブルシューティングの実施が必要となり、不便である。
    問題が特定できれば、対処の工数も減るため、エラーの検出機能の精度を上げて欲しい。
    The error detection feature of OneDrive sync client has a low accuracy rate, and details are not displayed even when an error is detected.
    As a result lots of troubleshooting steps need to be implemented whenever an error occurs which is very inconvenient.
    If we can identify the problem, the number of steps to resolve it will be reduced, so we hope that the accuracy of the error detection feature can be improved.

  11. Add the option to exclude file types from being backed up instead of blocking

    We need the ability to exclude files from being synced. Blocking them generates errors and warnings for the end users which freak them out. We either need the ability to silently block file types or just exclude them from syncing. We have this issue specifically with Microsoft Teams generating shortcuts that then get synchronised everywhere else.

  12. 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.

  14. 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

  15. Regarding OneNote Online

    Regarding OneNote Online


    ■Description(内容):
    OneNote Online のデータを他のテナントへ移行する際に、現在どのような設定値なのか確認できるような機能の実装を希望します。
    現時点では、各ユーザーの OneDrive for Business に保存されるため、各ユーザーが管理者となるため、各ユーザーごとに確認しなければならなく、複数ユーザーがいる場合に現実的ではないです。
    We hope a feature to check the settings currently being used when migrating OneNote Online data to other tenants will be implemented.
    Currently data is stored in each user's OneDrive for Business and each user is the administrator, and every single user needs to be checked, which makes this very impractical when there are multiple users.

  16. Provisioning for reassigning licenses to users that have stopped their licenses for over 30 days

    Provisioning for reassigning licenses to users that have stopped their licenses for over 30 days


    ■Description(内容):
    ライセンスを解除してから 30 日以上経過したユーザーに対して再度ライセンスを付与する際、プロビジョニングが正常に完了しないことにより当該ユーザーの OneDrive for Business 上のデータにアクセスできなくなる可能性があるため、解除してから 30 日以上経過したユーザーに対するプロビジョニングが正しく完了できる機能を実装してほしい。

    ※ 長期休暇の社員が 1 年後に復帰する際など、ライセンスを解除してから 30 日以上経過したユーザーにライセンスを再付与する場合があるため。
    When re-licensing a user who has stopped the license for more than 30 days, the user may not be able to access data on OneDrive for Business if the user fails to finish the provisioning normally. Thus we hope that a feature that can complete provisioning correctly for users who have passed the 30 day mark will be implemented.
    *This is because…

  17. Give the option to let onedrive use an subst to a drive letter.

    Give us the option to let onedrive be accesses bij a drive letter. This soves the following problems:
    - The path is sorter (c:\users\username\onedrive with be O:)
    - You can allow browsing with chromium without exposing the c: drive (blacklist file:///*, whitelist o:/)
    - Old programs can access the onedrive files much easier.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
