  1. Add a report of users that do not have a OD4B site provisioned but have a license

    Would be nice if we could generate a report of all users that have a license for a OneDrive site but have not had a site provisioned. This list could be used with a PowerShell script to provision the sites and then create a script that automatically provisions one when a user is added to Azure AD.

  2. Enabling expiry limit for external file sharing

    Need to have the feature of setting expiry dates for business critical data shared with external users . It is extremely disappointing that the link expiry feature is available only for ondedrive personnel users and and links shared with anonymous users. It should be otherway round

  4. Enable Passcode using iOS Files

    Tried accessing OneDrive from iOS Files and it appears a message stating "Files cannot be accessed in this app with passcode enabled" and asked to disable it. I have to cancel the passcode and compromise the security because the iOS files cannot access OneDrive App as well as WhatsApp.

    We need to add the authentication to access OneDrive with passcode enabled.

  5. Add an "Employee Terminated" Field to AD and Microsoft O365 Accounts

    This request would have a big impact on both Exchange administration and OneDrive administration. Historically there has not been an avenue within AD to mark an account as terminated, other than maybe changing the account description field or utilizing the Exchange Custom Attributes. So you have an employee that leaves, maybe make the description change, and disable the account. You might grant the manager access to the former employee's mailbox for a period of time, and eventually delete the user account. In prior versions of SharePoint, a disabled account might trigger the Mysite deletion process which in O365 has become…

    Exchange の契約のないサブスクリプションのユーザーは、外部メールアドレスに通知が届かなければ何が共有されたのかわからないままである。

    We used to be able to change the e-mail address for notification from SharePoint Online or OneDrive for Business with entering external address into [Business email], but now the notification e-mail does not reach to the given address even though we change [Business email] section.

    Please put the behavior back to previous one, uses who don’t have Exchange subscription need to specify external address as the destination…

  9. 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.

  10. Please be sure to delete the "Documents" and "Attachments" folders.

    The 'Documents' folder and the 'Attachments' folder are created automatically. These folders are the default paths that can not be created or deleted.
    However, I do not use these folders.

    Please be sure to delete the "Documents" and "Attachments" folders.

  11. Allow _vti_ in folder and file names

    One drive is used to store all sorts of file, not just productivity documents. If you want to store an eclipse work space or a website, in OFB you can't because of this restriction. This makes competing products look more attractive. Why are these blocked and can that restriction be removed?

  12. The management of devices that is able to sync or even log in

    I sometimes forget to log out the onedrive at other computers. Is there any way to log out it remotely? It will be great if the devices can be managed. User can manage which device can sync and which can not. And even force them to log out.

  13. Allow Manager Access on Disable instead of Delete of AAD Account

    We would like the option to grant the manager access to a OneDrive when a user account is disabled (Sign-In Blocked) rather than deleted. We leave accounts disabled for 30 days so we need to manually grant access to managers.

  14. Failure to support ReFS in personal OneDrive -- as it is in OD4B - ruins admin experience

    Ideally, we could harmoniously deploy the features that separately convinced us to buy in to the Microsoft vision (M365, O365, EMS, Windows 10 Professional for Workstations and Windows 10 Enterprise). OD4B and OD worked harmoniously on NTFS volumes, OD4B works beautifully on ReFS -- but despite running on the identical sync client OD fails to support ReFS at all. OD fails to support "protect important files" on corporate devices, but recently it's announced (and we implemented) directing all those system Known Folders that populate "This PC" to reside in OD4B on ReFS. I am unsure if we're chasing your capabilities,…

  15. 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.

  16. Allow saving open OneDrive document offline when MFA expires

    PLEASE ALLOW USERS TO SAVE ONEDRIVE FILES OFFLINE WHEN THEY CAN'T APPROVE A MFA REQUEST.
    If multifactor authentication expires while working on a file saved on OneDrive, it won't be possible to save the file in any other offline location without approving the MFA. "File > Save As" path keeps on trying to connect to server and won't allow for saving the file in a different place (Excel in my case).

  17. OneDrive storage size should not use the local Disk Drive space. Local Disk is full due to to data from OneDrive.

    My OneDrive storage is using the capacity of my local Disk Drive, so the local disk is now full. I want to make space on my local PC and make the OneDrive storage size not counting for my local disk drive. How to do this without loosing data? Local Disk Drive should not be full due to OneDrive storage usage.

  18. Possibility to check how many users decide to use KFM

    When you have prompted users to use KFM user can decide to do so or not. Currently there's no way to check how many users in organisation decided to move Windows Known Folders. This would be very useful for testing before using silently KFM.

  19. Getting list of all site collection admins for OneDrive

    Currently, there no way to fetch a list of all site collection admins of all OneDrive account. The only way to check it is by going to Admin Portal and checking it for each and every user.

    PowerShell (Set-SPOUser) allows to add new site collection admins to SharePoint sites and OneDrive. However, Get-SPOUser doesn't get the site collection admins unless the admin account is already site collection admin on the OneDrive.

    It would be great to have some way for admins to fetch a list of all site collection admins either using script or GUI.

    Thank you.
