  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Stop sharing multiple folders/files

    I have tons of shared folder on my Onedrive personal, and I would like to stop sharing all of them. Make a button that simply says stop sharing, when multiple files/folders are selected in the "shared by me" section. Also delete the shared link with an expiration date after the link is expired (or 30 days), to prevent clutter of unused links.

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. Separation of audit logs for files shared in meetings and files shared in private chats

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    会議で共有されたファイルと個人間チャットで共有されたファイルの監査ログの区別
    Separation of audit logs for files shared in meetings and files shared in private chats


    ■Description(内容):
    Office365 監査ログでファイル共有に関するログを検索した際、チームに紐づかない会議内で共有されたファイルと、個人間チャットで共有されたファイルを区別するための情報が含まれず、監査には不十分であるため、共有場所を特定するための情報を含めるよう機能の拡充を希望します。

    If you search for logs of file sharing in the Office 365 audit logs, files shared in meeting which aren’t linked to teams, and files shared in private chats have no information to distinguish them from another, so please add information which specifies where the sharing took place.

  11. Give Admins options in PowerShell to find how many files are being uploaded by a user to OneDrive

    Please Give Admins the ability to know how many files the user is trying to upload to one drive or if a file is stuck is long Sync state from very long , for example a user had uploaded many files to one drive from her home pc , and her one drive was going slow in office , if there was an ability to view this in PowerShell that would be great .

  13. 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…

    Currently there is no way to change how items are displayed in OneDrive for Business for whole tenants at once.
    Please make it possible to do this, for example setting the default to “compact mode”, etc.

  19. 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.

  20. Service-by-Service Enablement of Multifactor Authentication

    I would like to enable Multi-factor authentication, but am I mistaken in that is an all-or-nothing proposition? I would like the ability to turn on MFA just for OneDrive... I don't want to turn it on and then have to mess with App Passwords, enforcement of MFA when trying to use my Xbox, or even Outlook.com for that matter. I would like to apply MFA on a service-by-service basis, as I need sit based upon my usage, where I may/may not have sensitive information, etc.

    Can you consider this enhancement, please? Or is it available nad I just haven't looked…
