  1. Selective Sync

    Allow us to select folders to not sync within the Entire sync'd drive on devices we choose. Eg. I have a folder with a lot of tutorial videos on my laptop that I would like to share with my peers, but I do not want it to sync to my iPad because that would take up way too much space.

    現時点の動作では、社内では編集やダウンロードは可能だが、自宅から編集やダウンロードを制御するといった、異なる環境での操作を制御する機能は提供されていないことを確認しております。

    In current design, the feature to control user’s action based on their access environment, such as users can edit or download in the office but prohibit those action when users are at their home, is not available in OneDrive for Business.
    It can be control only access based on where users try to access from, but it…

  3. Storage limits per user

    From OneDrive admin center i can set a different storage limit for each user, as for now, i can adjust the storage limit for all users in the organization :)

    It can be done for each Department as well ( which is for each Team group).

  4. Set as default location storage for cloud users (Azure AD users)

    I have a problem forcing users NOT to save files and folder on the PC (Documents, C or D drive, Desktop..etc).

    Therefore, I would suggest to add an option to force all Azure cloud users to save files and folders to OneDrive (as OneDrive for users account or on Teams files) or set it as the default location is fine too.

  9. Tighter supervision for the support team

    I tried to report a simple bug through the support (request 1500877 - are there other ways of reporting a bug?) and it has been a ridiculous experience: they continuously replied with nonsensical **** to bounce me off to the Office support or just make me give up. After 20 useless mail exchanges I gave up. A mix of negligence and incompetence never seen before.

  11. Please remove the folder / files path by sharing of files or folders

    Hi, when I wish to share a file a folder, via Link, the other person who open my shared folder can see the whole path of my folders structure. See here the example https://take.ms/FJdda

    Same with Links, all folders direcotry is written in the text of the URL Link, see here: https://take.ms/BlzuX

    Thats a big BUG / Trouble, for everyone who needs to share only some folders or files, without any other information.

  13. identify what computername the OneDrive client is not syncing

    OneDrive for Business should have a feature that identify what machine is not syncing so that the support could assist the user that is not syncing. Better if to identify why the client is not syncing.

    It is afraid that syncing of files distinguished and protected by DLP system with local devices will occur serious leakage of personal or internal information. In accord with ominous repercussions, we hope that this needed feature will improve manageability of safe control and promote operational efficiency with bounding tighter security.

  16. Eliminate Security Issues Created by Incompatible Storage Features

    File management has been a nightmare for years and OneDrive is making things more complicated by adding to the number of extra steps we have to take in order to have a somewhat consistent experience. Here are just a few problems:

    Storing your files on an NTFS drive lets you encrypt, compress, view zip file as regular folder, set permissions, file history, use bitlocker, file tagging, customize data shown in columns, file attributes, using time stamps for various automated or auditing purposes, LAN sharing over SMB 2/3, and offline caching. All of these features can often be put to good…

  19. Maybe have a two-step verification established on every logon/install?

    Every time you logon to a computer (Home/Work) have an established two-step verification to your mobile phone or email. This way no one else will have access to your personal files.

  20. Allow syncing only on computers joined to a local workgroup

    Allow only syncing on PC's connected to an Azure domain. The setting is in OneDrive Admin but it only works for local AD domains. It doesn't say that so it is very confusing but I found an article on that from a third party and Microsoft agreed it was true. Allow only syncing on PC's connected to an Azure domain.
