  1. Provide us to delete local cash files automatically when file on demand is enabled

    ■Title(件名):
    ファイル オンデマンド機能を有効にした際に、ローカルに保持されるキャッシュ ファイルを自動で削除する機能について。
    Provide us to delete local cash files automatically when file on demand is enabled


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business のファイル オンデマンド機能を有効にし、ローカル上にアイテムを保持した場合 "空き容量を増やす" にて ハードディスクの容量を軽くすることができますが、同期フォルダー上に一定期間 (指定した期間) 使用していないファイルがある場合に、自動で "空き容量を増やす" 機能について実装をお願いします。

    I would like to see the feature to “increase storage space” if there are unused files for certain period (specified period) at sync folder automatically.
    At current feature, we need to enable file on demand for OneDrive for Business and save items on the local to make more space for hard disk with “increase storage space” option.

  2. allow admins to get a report of users that utilize the PC Folder Backup feature of OneDrive

    This will help admins track which users are using the feature so it can be implemented better. Management and deployment will be easy as you will only need to contact users that are not using the feature and avoid manually checking each user one by one.

  3. Please extend the limitation of file paths for the sync on OneDrive for Business

    OneDrive for Business における同期の 400 文字の上限の引き上げについて
    Please extend the limitation of file paths for the sync on OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):
    以下の公開情報に、SharePoint Online および OneDrive for Business における同期の制限事項に、ファイル名のパスに、400 文字まで設定することが可能と記載がある。

    <参考情報>
    タイトル : ファイルおよびフォルダーを同期する際の制限事項
    アドレス : https://support.microsoft.com/ja-jp/help/3125202/
    ----------以下抜粋----------
    SharePoint Online では、ファイル名のパスに、400 文字まで設定することができます。 一部のシナリオ (特に、ライブラリに非常に長い URL パスを設定している場合) では、文字数の制限が 400 文字を下回る場合があります。
    ---------抜粋ここまで---------

    しかしながら、日本語などのダブル バイト文字を使用している場合、Office Online や Office クライアント等で Office 対応ドキュメントを開く際に、ブラウザー側でダブル バイト文字はエンコードされ、 1 文字につきシングル バイト文字換算の 9 文字として計算されるため、すぐに 400 文字の条件に達してしまいます。
    そのため、400 文字の上限値を引き上げをお願い致します。

    We understand that file name paths are able to have maximum 400 characters on SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business as below information mention.

  4. Granting an app OneDrive permission should only grant access to a specific folder. Not everything

    When installing apps that uses OneDrive (I my case apps on Android) you grant them a very broad permission to access ALL AND EVERYTHING stored on my OneDrive.

    I my specific case, I wanted to try out apps that can stream the music from OneDrive I have stored on OneDrive. mp3 etc.

    You can only grant permissions to all and everything stored on OneDrive and not just that one folder where my music is. This behavior prevents me for using any non-Microsoft app that wants to connect to my OneDrive.

    I store personal sensitive stuff on OneDrive and I don't…

  8. Limit or disable versioning based on file type

    We would like to use OneDrive to allow users to backup their local PST files from their workstation. We don't want users to import these large files into their OST file in Outlook so it is more of an archive solution.

    The issue is that if users connect their PST file to Outlook it starts creating versions. We can block sync of PST files but that is not the desired behaviour.

    It would be nice if we could limit or disable versioning based on file types at an admin level.

    Trying to change OneDrive’s upper storage limit from the Microsoft 365 admin center gives an error.
    It is possible to change it by small amounts, for example in 100GB increments.

    You can also change it using Windows PowerShell, but this takes some work, which is inconvenient.
    Please make it possible to change the storage limit for OneDrive from the Microsoft 365 admin center without getting any errors.

  11. OneDrive for Business: Revise the "Access Files" feature in the Microsoft 365 admin center

    Currently, admins with the SharePoint administrator role can easily access the personal OneDrive for Business library of other users in the same tenant following the steps described below:


    • Search for the user in the Microsoft 365 admin center

    • Click on "OneDrive Settings"

    • Click on "Access files"

    Subsequently, the admin performing these steps is added as site collection admin to the OneDrive for Business site collection of the user.

    While we trust each other within our team, this feature might be a huge concern to other people in the company. In addition, users might lose trust in Office 365 if they…

  12. Option for OneDrive to Skip Backup of Select Folders, without deleting them from our computers.

    Folders like ".git", "tmp", "cache" should never be backed up. They are easily regenerated and there is no logical reason to backup these folders ever. These folders need to be skipped.

    Currently we have the option to not backup certain folders but they will be deleted from our computers if we do. How about allow us to keep the folder on our computers and OneDrive...simply ignores it.

  14. Improve deleted user notice to reporting manager

    The plain-text, single paragraph notice is hard for many users to understand. Consider breaking up into several chunked paragraphs.

    An example of how this might be done is listed here:

  15. Disable external OneDrive sharing per user

    Disable external OneDrive sharing per user

    When users leave our company, we want to disable external sharing on that user only. In the O365 Admin console there is an option for this. However, the setting is overwritten by the tenant settings.
    We need more granular control on external sharing

  16. Adjust the notification message generated when multiple files are moved or deleted.

    Ability to adjust the message "Heads up! We noticed that you recently deleted a large number of files from a site". Also the ability to set a minimum number of files before the alert is triggered.

    The message is causing confusion when users move files as they are get picked up as being deleted.

  17. Correct login region accuracy and send activity sign in details on email for every login

    Always accessing the web to search and then see the sign-in details and activity log is cumbersome. Thereby it would be better if Microsoft OneDrive itself send the login details like Date and time of logging in, Device details used for signing in, IP Address of the device and location of sign in and login session details at sign out.

    I have also noticed that the location of logging in is not that accurate for example if a user of a particular country say India logs in to his account from a particular place of a particular city of a…
