  2. 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.

  3. Function for users without an admin license to check file access histories

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    管理者ライセンスがないユーザーでファイルのアクセス履歴の確認する機能について
    Function for users without an admin license to check file access histories


    ■Description(内容):
    アクセス履歴を確認するユーザーに管理者ライセンスの付与をすることは社内ポリシー上できないため、管理者ライセンスを付与をせず、動画をアップロードしたユーザーがアクセス履歴を確認する機能の追加をご希望

    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.

  4. Change external sharing setting, which is more permissive for some users than default

    Some users needs more permissive sharing settings for sharing files (e.g. "Anyone"). The default set in the Admin Center should be less permissive (e. g. "New and existing guests").
    Problem: If you set the external sharing setting "Anyone" in Admin Center, each new user's sharing settings has to be changed to "New and existing guests".

    Please provide an option, to assign a more permissive sharing setting for some users than the default in Admin Center.

  5. Restrict external access to only OneDrive for Business

    Restrict external access to only OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、社外から OneDrive for Business へのアクセス制御は IP アドレスの制御を実施することで可能である。
    しかしながら、上記設定を行った場合、SharePoint Online への制御もされてしまう動作となる。
    そのため、社外から SharePoint Online へのアクセスは可能なまま OneDrive for Business のみ 社外からのアクセスを制御可能な機能の拡充を要望します。

    Currently, it is possible to restrict external access to OneDrive for Business using IP restrictions.
    However, if these settings are used, access to SharePoint Online is also restricted accordingly.
    Therefore, please add a way to restrict external access to OneDrive for Business while still allowing it for SharePoint Online.

  7. OneDrive Powershell commands to manage onedrive folders

    We were hit with Ransomware. The ransomware created a txt file in all folders and subfolders within OneDrive. Unfortunately, there is no powershell command to mass delete all files from all user folders.

  8. Custom storage location for on-premise OneDrive/SharePoint

    It would be great if we can configure custom storage locations for OD4B files that are integrated into a SharePoint farm. For instance, if my farm is in Texas and I am in Denver, my OneDrive files should be able to reside in Denver, rather than where the farm is located. If we have a bunch of offices with files local to that office, we should be able to keep the files local to those office, but use OD4B.

    This also allows for better staging for a migration to OneDrive/SharePoint online

  10. Allow one to open .MOD files in One Drive.

    JVC Everio Camcorders are still used by many folks like me.
    video files are stored on One Drive - for safe keeping as well as viewing and sharing.
    Would be great if one could view ALL video files on One Drive, including .MOD files.
    Please provide proper codec to One Drive so anyone who stores .MOD files on One Drive can open and view said files on One Drive.
    Thank you.

  11. Notifications when the owner of a folder on OneDrive for Business has their account deleted

    OneDrive for Businessのフォルダ所有者のアカウント削除時の通知について
    Notifications when the owner of a folder on OneDrive for Business has their account deleted


    ■Description(内容):
    特定のユーザーの OneDrive for Business のフォルダーを複数名で共有して利用しています。
    管理者が退職者のアカウントを削除する際、管理者は OneDrive for Business の他ユーザーへの共有については管理をしていないため、共有先ユーザーへ通知をすることはおこなっていません。
    そのため、管理者が共有元ユーザーのアカウントを削除をすると、共有先ユーザーは告知なしに今まで利用していたフォルダーやファイルを利用することが出来なくなります。
    OneDrive for Business においてユーザーが削除される場合、今までに共有をおこなったことのあるユーザーへ一斉通知を送信するようにできないでしょうか。
    一斉通知が送信できれば、共有元ユーザーが削除される前に通知を送信し、必要なファイルを移動させることができるので、機能の実装を希望いたします。

    We have a specific user sharing a folder on OneDrive for Business with many people.
    When an administrator deletes the account of someone who has left the company, since the administrator does not manage sharing with other users on OneDrive for Business, the users with which the deleted user’s files were being shared are not notified of the change.
    Therefore, if…

  12. Allow for disabling of Versioning, and decrease lower bound threshold of versions to significantly reduce my data usage and save money

    The automatic non optional versioning is making me use more data than I need. This is the same for many other companies.

    Give this option so customers can decide what to value, space or back up.

  13. NOT SYNCING EVERYTHING ON ONEDRIVE

    I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT WANT TO USE GOOGLE CHROME. I HAVE DELETED GOOGLE CHROME FROM MY DEVICE AS IT COMPLETELY SLOWED DOWN MY SYSTEM/DEVICE ENTIRELY. VERY FRUSTRATING AND ANNOYING. TOO MUCH TIME IS WASTED WITH CHROME.

  17. Index items in the recycle bin for eDiscovery

    Currently in OneDrive: "The Recycle Bin is not indexed and therefore unavailable for searching. As a result, an eDiscovery search can't find any Recycle Bin content on which to place a hold."

    This seems to be a huge and glaring issue as people intuitively would believe eDiscovery results run against OneDrive would encompass all areas. It does not make sense that an investigation would miss a critical piece of evidence because someone had deleted it. It seems probable that people may delete data they do not want found, so it is counterintuitive that this location is not indexed. This should…

  18. Either provide all Indian languages or keep English in country option.

    I just saw that in the settings the country option is written 'Bharat' in Hindi. I would call my country India and the preferred language would be English. For a South Indian like me, Hindi is not my mother tongue, its Malayalam. So I would like it to be returned to 'India' in English.
