  1. 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…

  2. 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?

  3. 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.

  4. Add an "Employee Terminated" Field to AD and Microsoft O365 Accounts

    This request would have a big impact on both Exchange administration and OneDrive administration. Historically there has not been an avenue within AD to mark an account as terminated, other than maybe changing the account description field or utilizing the Exchange Custom Attributes. So you have an employee that leaves, maybe make the description change, and disable the account. You might grant the manager access to the former employee's mailbox for a period of time, and eventually delete the user account. In prior versions of SharePoint, a disabled account might trigger the Mysite deletion process which in O365 has become…

  5. Centrally manage / easier Sharepoint syncing

    I find that trying to train users on syncing Sharepoint has been EXTREMELY challenging, more so than creating apps, configuring Sharepoint or even landing men on the moon for some reason... It would be handy to have a console where I can say right that bunch of users, matter what Device they are on (as long as it is Windows 10), they get these libraries synced. I have generally always got 1 site that everyone accesses (or the vast majority) and it would be good to just tick a box and whenever a new laptop is added, as soon as…

  7. Disable versions and set a version limit.

    Disable versions and set a version limit.


    • Set a global option that allows you to disable the versions or limit the maximum number of them, for example: 0, 3, 7 versions.

  8. free

    Add a free subscription (5gb) to the Office 365 admin portal. Otherwise, you are forcing us to purchase one drive in order to use it with a work email account. This should be illegal. If we did not have an office 365 portal setup then we would otherwise be able to sign up for the free one drive account using our internal email addresses. Just add the free one drive subscription to the portal or fix this. When I try to view my products and licenses and work with one drive products in the portal it says "one drive is…

  9. Allow uploading of encrypted files through third party app

    Please make it possible to upload encrypted files through apps like rclone without continously triggering ransomware protection which blocks the web interface. Alternatively: When the user confirms that the uploading of encrypted files is intended, OneDrive should stop triggering ransomware protection again and again, as it is currently doing.

  11. Use of German Datacenter

    Enable the possibility to use the German datacenter for Office 365 Personal!

    While the use of the German datacenter is available for Office 365 Business it would be highly appreciated to use these datacenter with the personal OneDrive as well.

  12. Eliminate filename and folder name exclusions

    At the moment, some characters and file/folder names will not sync, even though the names are valid on the device. For instance, a folder named "Forms" in the root of the sync directory will not sync to the cloud. This is an unnecessary restriction.

  13. Secure One Drive (web, android, iOS, PC and Mac) using two step authentication

    Secure One Drive (web, android, iOS, PC and Mac) using two step verification just like in "Personal Vault". This would definitely secure our One Drive in an event when one of our devices would be stolen. I have signed in to One Drive web recently and typed all the password and it automatically connects me with my One Drive without verifying who entered the password. What if something happens to one or more of my devices, how can I retrieve and possibly secure all my files in my Account. Identity theft is still the number one issue today.

  14. Move Application Folders to dedicated subfolder

    There is no dedicated folder where applications can store their files.
    Some use the top folder, other the 'Documents' folder
    but the top folder should be relatively clean and user oriented
    whilst documents should be mainly maintainted with user content

    hence the suggestion to provide an dedicated folder for such items.
    Some thing like Applications Files,
    it could be placed under the top folder or the Documents folder

  15. Silent KFM not working when there is a "problem", but wont tell the user or the admin.

    We've been testing out OneDrive KFM, and its not working when there is a problem with one of the know folders, it could be a Symlink or "illegal" file type, .pst etc.
    It would be nice to have a dashboard that wrote these errors from the deployment, so we could take action on it, instead of not knowing why it isn't deploying.

  17. Sync control on root level for OneDrive for Home usage

    As a home user, I store copies of important documents in the cloud, so I have them still available in case of e.g. fire. However I don't want those documents to be synced with every device I am using.

    My question is: Can a configuration be added to the root level folders of each account, where using the web-interface I can configure for each root folder whether the folder is allowed to be synced to a device or not. I would like to have this configuration in one place only (on the web interface), and not configure this on each…

  18. Storage

    On our subscription, we have 6TB - 1TB for 6 people each. We are only using 2, but there is no way to combine storage so it would be 2TB on one account, and the rest are 1TB each, now only 5 accounts.
