  1. Fix security for OneDrive Folders & Files on Android.

    OneDrive app for Android is giving users a false sense of security. You can enable a password, or on certain devices, fingerprint security or facial recognition to unlock OneDrive. But if the user has installed Word Mobile, or Excel Mobile, all OneDrive folders and files are accessible without any password, fingerprint or other security. There is no way to limit the Word mobile or Excel mobile apps on Android from having access to OneDrive folders and files. So any security for OneDrive is completely bypassed.
    If one were to lose one's device, the whole idea of requiring security is so…

  3. 建议onedrive个人保管库在锁定状态下依然可以同步更改

    onedrive个人保管库只能在解锁状态下才能同步更改,这个机制不太合理,当我需要在个人保管库中上传大文件时,一般都不能在20分钟(保管库自动锁定时间)内完成上传更新任务,这时个人保管库会自动锁定并停止上传,导致我在其他设备上无法看到我在保管库中修改的内容。建议修改为在锁定状态下依然可以同步更改但是不能查看,这样更好一些,

  5. Path of file in info

    Searching a file via common specifications (e.g.: Rome municipality, conifers, article1.pdf) can gives various proposed file, but do not offer (at least in the info) the path of the file: they make it cumbersome to discern between multiple editions of the file, different topics and folders (shared or not), and in general recognize at a glance the exact location (in my case factor of productivity) become a complicated task.
    So please Just add those infos where it's supposed to find their.

  7. Files in my Personal Vault shouldn't show up in Windows Search when it is locked.

    I created a text file in Personal Vault, locked the fault, and the file still showed up in Windows Search results. The vault is useless to me if this happens.

  8. Could the block sync for OneDrive desktop application be enhanced so OneDrive for Business and Sharepoint could be treated differently.

    Currently business uses the OneDrive client for 2 different purposes, the first is to provide users and interface with OneDrive for business. The users are not allowed to download this data to personal devices, so the option has been set to only allow this for domain joined devices.
    The client is also used to access sharepoint online, which is used to share with external customers, so we dont want the same restriction.

    OneDriveを使用するにあたり、自宅を初めとする社外よりWebアクセスを制限させたい。
    アプリがインストールされている環境であれば、アクセスできてしまう点は考慮していません。最終的な要望として可能であれば職場や限られた場所からのみかつクライアントアプリからのみアクセスできるようにしたい。
    I would like to restrict users not to access OneDrive from outside of the organization including the user’s home. I’m not considering about the situation that users can access the service if they have installed the app. In conclusion, I would like to control where users can access OneDrive that only from the client app and specified location such as the office.

    It would be great if OneDrive storage size will be updated from 2GB to 1TB automatically when the assigned license to users are changed from F1 to E3.
    In current design, we need to change the size via PowerShell, so please change storage size automatically when the assigned license is changed.

  14. 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.

  16. 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).

  17. 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.
