  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. Allow group to view relevant OneDrives for Business

    This one is coming from education and I've seen this question asked countless times on education tech forums.

    I would love to migrate my student user areas to OneDrive for business.

    Currently, our locally hosted user drives can be viewed by teaching staff (read only). This is imperative for a number of reasons including safeguarding - it is essential to be able to quickly view the contents of a student drive in cases where student safety is in question, especially if it's storage accessible outside of the school. Another requirement to access student areas is to collect and monitor work,…

  6. Allow me to permanently uninstall OneDrive in one go

    Also, it should not try to reinstall itself again ever in the future, if it is once removed.

    please...

  10. Allow Admins to force sync only select Known Folders

    Enable Admins to force only selective know folders IE. force the my Documents folder to sync but not the My Pictures or Desktops folders.

    The known folder synce (Backup) would be great for us to use but we do not want the clutter that will come with syncing Desktop or My pictures

  11. You cant combine storage

    It is absurd that you buy 6 Tb in Microsoft Familly and you can only use 1 Tb. In Google Drive and iCloud if you buy 6 Tb you can use 6 Tb. Not at Microsoft. Multiple emails are required and you cannot combine storage. Each day I get more disappointed with Microsoft's services.

    É um absurdo você comprar 6 Tb no Microsoft Familly e você só pode usar 1 Tb. No Google Drive e no iCloud se você comprar 6 Tb você pode usar 6 Tb. Na Microsoft não. É necessário ter vários e-mails e você não pode unir…

  12. manager

    Change the OneDrive retention and deletion process..
    OneDrive deletion process should be disabled by default. -> "If a manager is specified for the deleted account, the manager will receive an email telling them they have access to the OneDrive, and that the OneDrive will be deleted at the end of the retention period."
    The manager field is in Active Directory, on users objects.

  14. Adding a feature not to sync files distinguished and protected by DLP (Data Loss Prevention) system

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名): 
    DLP で機密情報が含まれていると判定されたファイルの同期を禁止する機能を搭載してほしい

    Adding a feature not to sync files distinguished and protected by DLP (Data Loss Prevention) system


    ■Description(内容): DLP の機能で機密情報が含まれていることを検知されたファイルについて、ローカルと同期されて端末に保存され、情報が流出してしまう事態を心配しています。セキュリティの面で懸念を残すため、機密情報が含まれているファイルの同期を禁止する機能の実現を要望します。

    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.

  15. 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.

  16. Option to fully ignore symlinks (symbolic links)

    I would normally upload source code for various projects to synchronize between my desktop and laptop however there are plenty of vendor packages which are redundant that can be symlinked and/or updated via the Internet.

    Having an option to ignore symlinked directories within onedrive would solve this issue quite easily at near zero development cost on your end. The only gotcha is synching this option between all logged in onedrive instances.

  18. 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…

  20. Onedrive Client Type Metrics

    Please introduce a way of monitoring what type of client is used to connect to OneDrive and SharePoint libraries. (ideally somewhere like the Unified Logging or OneDrive Logging on O365)

    This and other metrics would be useful for justification for developing strategies going forward about what software to have installed on our corp wide domain.
