  5. Allow increasing a site's quota when at capacity..

    With the current product limits, administrators are unable to manage a user's my-site quota after they have already hit quota. The solution involves contacting the end user and asking them to clear out enough content to get the site back under quota or creating a ticket to support to process the request by way of an escalation to PG. If administrators were able to bump up a user's quota while it was currently at quota we could avoid the extra steps of having to ask an end user to delete content or creating a support request, when the need to…

  7. Have an alternative means to contact the Onedrive support team other than the 'email'.

    Currently there seems to be only one way to get in touch with the Onedrive support team. I can log in to onedrive.com to write down what the problem is in the feedback form, but it does not get sent for some reason.

    Shouldn't there be an alternative mode of getting support in case the probem users experience also affects their ability to get support by sending 'feedback' via their account?

  11. recover files after freezing account

    Dear team Microsoft,
    i just lost my account and the whole files in it because it's getting freezed first. i am so dissapoint because the files cannot be recover again even after i buy 360 or another product.
    Some files is very important and it is okay if i have to pay "a product" or doing something to recover the files. Doesnt give any chance for your costumer to recover their files is very harmful.

    thanks,

  13. Prevent the ability to delete the location being synced in explorer until syncing has stopped.

    When a user selects the location they are syncing in the explorer navigation pane they should not be able to delete this folder or selecting delete should automatically stop the sync and then remove the folder. Currently pressing delete prompts them that the folder will be permanently removed from their computer but doesn't let them know that the Onedrive sync client will go-ahead and delete all the contents of that folder in SharePoint as well.

  14. Create a Flow trigger when an anonymous link is created

    Create a trigger that could be used in approval workflows (MS Flow) whenever an anonymous link is created. Sharepoint/OneDrive severely lacks granularity in granting ability to create anonymous links; it's an all or nothing setting almost. Having a trigger that could be used in workflows would greatly help in maintaining awareness of when anonymous links were created in addition to providing the ability to build approval workflows.

  15. Allow Office 365 business users to assign part of the 1 TB business Onedrive to their private Onedrive account.

    I have 2 onedrive accounts: a business onedrive account and a private one. It should be possible to use part of my business 1 TB for my private account (I need about 100 GB private).
    Because my PC has Office 365 already from my work subscription then Microsoft forces me to move my private cloud data to Google. I won't buy Office 365 a second time for my computer and no option to get or buy 100 GB for my privat outlook account.

  18. Automatically delete downloaded files upon signing out from OneDrive app

    I think it would be important for OneDrive team to enable automatic deletion of downloaded files upon signing out from OneDrive app.

    First, the current OneDrive's approach may not be in line with EU General Data Protection Regulation (requiring data protection by design). Second, in this area, OneDrive can have a competitive disadvantage against Google Drive's File Stream app.

  19. Set or change default timezone and region for all users

    There should be the ability to set the timezone and region for all users in a tenant at the admin level.

    At the moment the timezone and region at set to US which makes no sense when the Office 365 tenant is set different.
    It results in the dates being displayed in the wrong format in Excel online documents.

    It's unreasonable to assume a user will go and change this setting.

  20. Update the email sent to manager when a user has been deleted to include a link to the Site Collection Owners setting.

    Update the email sent to manager when a user has been deleted to include a link to the Site Collection Owners setting.

    Including a link to the _layouts/15/mngsiteadmin.aspx would allow the manager to assign a different owner for the OneDrive of the deleted user.
