  1. Automatic Site/Group Joining

    Need a way for admins to automatically assign SharePoint / Group Document Libraries to sync to user OneDrive Clients. These are often used to replace old "Network Shares"

  2. OneDrive Restore Settings, make it an option for it to be disabled by Admin

    OneDrive Restore Settings, make it an option for it to be disabled by Admin. This is to avoid end users mistakenly restore their whole sites and sync to their local folders and causes document lost.

  3. 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.

  4. Encrypt on local hard drive

    As a organization we’d like the ability to have the whole local OneDrive for Business folder encrypted, so that even if another administrator logs on, they wouldn’t be able to access the data. We can enable bitlocker for the hard drive but we cannot prevent the scenario with local admins, as they can just take ownership of the user profile folder.

  5. Add the possibility to add an AzureAD domain to the specific domain list for synchronization

    We would like to see the option to add AzureAD to the specific domain list, now it's only possible to add on-premise domains, but now with Intune and only azure-ad joined machines I think it would be a nice change. We use SCCM Co-management and Intune. The computers are not on-premise joined but we would like a restriction on what machines OneDrive can be synchronized. To make it work now the only option is to disable the specific domain sync but than we would lose control on what machines the synchronization can be made.

    At One Drive File on Demand, currently there are two types of the icon with check mark to indicate the status of files as they are available on the local.

    Both icons tell us that the file is sync and this means there are two kinds of icons for the one status.

    Those icons might make users are confused, so please display the one icon for one status.

  7. download

    Enhance the "Block syncing of specific file types" to stop the ODFB Sync client from downloading blocked file types FROM the tenant to the client PC.

    Example:

    I have blocked MP4 files via the "Block syncing of specific file types" at https://admin.onedrive.com.

    I put an MP4 file into the root of my OneDrive for Business folder on my local PC to send it to my O365 tenant.

    The Sync client correctly blocks this and makes me remove the MP4 file from my local PC.

    -----------------------

    Open https://tenant-my.sharepoint.com and upload the MP4 file via the browser to the site.

    Wait…

  8. Create a Flow trigger when an anonymous link is created

    Create a trigger that could be used in approval workflows (MS Flow) whenever an anonymous link is created. Sharepoint/OneDrive severely lacks granularity in granting ability to create anonymous links; it's an all or nothing setting almost. Having a trigger that could be used in workflows would greatly help in maintaining awareness of when anonymous links were created in addition to providing the ability to build approval workflows.

  9. OneDrive mobile client support for Azure Information Protection (AIP) protected documents

    Currently when you attempt to view an AIP protected document in the iOS mobile client (presuming its the same for Android clients), the document fails to show and OneDrive shows a message stating:

    "The file can't be displayed. Make sure that you're connected to a WiFi or mobile network".

    The user then has to have the Word (or other Office app) client installed on their mobile device and then click on the Word icon to access the document.

    My suggestion/request is that the mobile client should be AIP label and policy aware and able to open the document preview, just…

  14. Disable external OneDrive sharing per user

    Disable external OneDrive sharing per user

    When users leave our company, we want to disable external sharing on that user only. In the O365 Admin console there is an option for this. However, the setting is overwritten by the tenant settings.
    We need more granular control on external sharing

  20. Granting an app OneDrive permission should only grant access to a specific folder. Not everything

    When installing apps that uses OneDrive (I my case apps on Android) you grant them a very broad permission to access ALL AND EVERYTHING stored on my OneDrive.

    I my specific case, I wanted to try out apps that can stream the music from OneDrive I have stored on OneDrive. mp3 etc.

    You can only grant permissions to all and everything stored on OneDrive and not just that one folder where my music is. This behavior prevents me for using any non-Microsoft app that wants to connect to my OneDrive.

    I store personal sensitive stuff on OneDrive and I don't…
