  1. Add a report that shows all shared files for all users in a tenancy (User, Shared File Name, Who the file is shared with).

    Our Information Governance Dept have requested a report as above so that they can keep tabs on what users are sharing from OneDrive.

  3. Display the three numbers when using authenticator for personal vault

    Have the authenticator app display three numbers when signing into personal vault like when signing into OneDrive in a browser, instead of just approving or denying the request.

  4. Exclude folders from removal monitoring

    I have couple of OneDrive folders used for sync between devices. After sync complete, I get the alert of "multiply files removed", and it can be annoying. How about to mark the folder to exclude it from file removal monitoring?

  5. Option to block spontaneous file sharing

    I recently received a shared document from someone who I had never heard of, living on the other side of the world. The only point of them sending the document was to include a cover note, which appeared to be offering to help me find prostitutes or drugs via Craigslist. In effect OneDrive is functioning as a vector for spam. I would like to be able to set a flag to say that only people on an approved list can share files with me.

  6. Forget about features, first get the basics working

    Forget about new features, first get the basics working. Looks like the service is severely flawed on fundamentals. Even email to support feature is not working for customers to post their problems. The dialog is just stuck in progress while posting the message.

    I have many files in my One Drive that show up but do not open. I am afraid if I have lost critical data because I trusted on One Drive. Please restore all the files immediately.

  9. Developers. Ask the question. If you had discovered the formula of how to change lead to gold would you entrust this formula to OneDrive?

    If you would not then how do you expect others to entrust their secrets? And yes, everyone has secrets.

  10. Better explanation of end-to-end encryption "implied" but not described explicitly as being part of Personal Vault.

    Bitlocker security for Personal Vault - make it user cloud bitlocked drive just as local drive.

    If I change the "Apply to the following content" and "Settings" for a retention policy that I have created, the last modification date of the retention policy is updated immediately after the save, but the last modified date returns to its original state when I refresh the screen.
    If I change the retention policy’s status or policy name, the date of the last change is the updated date, but the behavior…

  13. You need to put out a disclaimer notice ASAP!

    Yesterday I rec'd over 40 calls supposedly from "Apple Inc" telling me my "cloud" was causing a severe security risk to my Apple products. Altho I KNEW it was a scam (because I own no Apple products), others might not. Found out today that many other friends also rec'd those same annoying repeat calls all day long & even into the night until around 8 pm yesterday. I blocked every number they used to call me, but they would then just roll over to another number for their robo-dialer to use to constantly harass me (as they did to my…

  15. MFA support for OneDrive sync client

    Azure B2B guest user cannot use the OneDrive sync client, because the client does not support Multi-Factor-Authentication (MFA)!

    Please implement MFA for the B2B sync for OneDrive.

  16. (DCR) modify the behavior of how the data is stored after a user selects “stop backup” on an ad\hoc basis

    Issue:
    • When you stop the backup of any of your known folders, the files stay in the OneDrive folder instead of being moved to the original folder location.
    • The message you get is not very clear for a non-technical user, which will make them think they are losing their files by stopping the backup.

    We would like to either make OneDrive to move the files back to the original location. [ definitely would like to push for this option.

    Or if it’s not possible due to design / change complexity… To provide a more user friendly message, indicating…

  17. Sync SharePoint sync settings

    It appears that when you sync a SharePoint online library the folders you sync are only applied to that computer.

    If you log in to a second (or new) computer you have to replicate every sync manually. This could take forever to replicate if you are syncing a large number of sites/libraries.

  18. Expire

    File expiration date: user defined expiration date of the file on onedrive. For example, product offers which user may want to get back to; or saved emails which may not be relevant or important to hold on to.
    Absolves the user from recurring purging of files.

  19. Variable time-out times for OneDrive Vault

    The automatic time-out for OneDrive Vault works great for work from phones and tablets, and while traveling, but when I'm sitting at my desk at home working on my Windows-10 desktop computer, I often need to work with the files in the Vault for an hour or more. Please allow an option (perhaps on the Open Vault request form) to specify how long we want the Vault to be open.
