  1. 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.

  2. Folder and File share access - restrict via IP Address

    We would like to assign share access to Folders and Files to specific users that are connecting from specific IP addresses. This can already be done as a whole within sharepoint but this prevents access to other areas of the system.

    We have confidential information that we would like staff to view that can be viewed only from the Company's external IP Address.

  4. Turn off virus detection for Office 365

    n my work, I have to analyse lots of file, maybe they contain virus or malicious software,
    but onedrive client just block it and I have to login onedrive.com and download it mannualy.

    I have searched everywhere in the "Office 365 admin center",
    why there is not a option to turn off the virus detection?

    I have also tried the gragh API and can't download it either, just "malicious detected" returned when I request the download url.

  5. Option to set one specific folder "Always keep on this device" in intune and GPO

    It would be great if admins can set the value "always keep on this device" for a specific folder in the OneDrive of all users in the company.

    We can use this for example to place UE-V files.

    If possible, can it be set with a GPO or Intune or both.

  7. Increase Storage Limit After Each Subscription Renovation

    It would be great to have our storage limit increased with each subscription renovation, maybe 30 ~ 50% per year?

  9. The management of devices that is able to sync or even log in

    I sometimes forget to log out the onedrive at other computers. Is there any way to log out it remotely? It will be great if the devices can be managed. User can manage which device can sync and which can not. And even force them to log out.

  10. Regarding the behavior of notifications when a file is downloaded from a shared folder in OneDrive for Business

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Business において、共有したフォルダー内のファイルをダウンロードした際の通知動作について
    Regarding the behavior of notifications when a file is downloaded from a shared folder in OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business において、ファイル単体で共有設定を実施した場合、共有先ユーザーでそのファイルをダウンロードした際には共有元ユーザーにメールで通知される機能がありますが、フォルダーを共有先として指定した場合には、共有先のユーザーがフォルダー内のファイルをダウンロードしても共有元ユーザーに通知される機能がありません。この通知機能を追加してほしい。

    In OneDrive for Business, if an individual file is shared then there exists a function that notifies the owner when a user downloads that file. However, there is no such notification functionality if the sharing is set at the folder level, and the files within the folder are downloaded. I would like to see this feature added in the future.

  14. Add a personnel vault integrated password manager

    Everybody uses 3rd party password managers and now with personnel vault, one-drive it self can add a password manager making us dependent on one less 3rd party app.

  15. (DCR) modify the behavior of how the data is stored after a user selects “stop backup” on an ad\hoc basis

    Issue:
    • When you stop the backup of any of your known folders, the files stay in the OneDrive folder instead of being moved to the original folder location.
    • The message you get is not very clear for a non-technical user, which will make them think they are losing their files by stopping the backup.

    We would like to either make OneDrive to move the files back to the original location. [ definitely would like to push for this option.

    Or if it’s not possible due to design / change complexity… To provide a more user friendly message, indicating…

  16. Encrypt on local hard drive

    As a organization we’d like the ability to have the whole local OneDrive for Business folder encrypted, so that even if another administrator logs on, they wouldn’t be able to access the data. We can enable bitlocker for the hard drive but we cannot prevent the scenario with local admins, as they can just take ownership of the user profile folder.

  17. A businessplan for one user and at least 5 TB of storage

    Small datadriven businesses still often need more than 1 TB of storage, but it is not viable to pay for 5 userlicenses.

  18. Allow Manager Access on Disable instead of Delete of AAD Account

    We would like the option to grant the manager access to a OneDrive when a user account is disabled (Sign-In Blocked) rather than deleted. We leave accounts disabled for 30 days so we need to manually grant access to managers.
