  1. Storage limits per user

    From OneDrive admin center i can set a different storage limit for each user, as for now, i can adjust the storage limit for all users in the organization :)

    It can be done for each Department as well ( which is for each Team group).

  2. identify what computername the OneDrive client is not syncing

    OneDrive for Business should have a feature that identify what machine is not syncing so that the support could assist the user that is not syncing. Better if to identify why the client is not syncing.

  4. Give the option to let onedrive use an subst to a drive letter.

    Give us the option to let onedrive be accesses bij a drive letter. This soves the following problems:
    - The path is sorter (c:\users\username\onedrive with be O:)
    - You can allow browsing with chromium without exposing the c: drive (blacklist file:///*, whitelist o:/)
    - Old programs can access the onedrive files much easier.

  9. personal vault

    Personal vault should be available through Office 365 for business subscription.
    I have all of the Office 365 services provided through my Office 365 for Business subscription. The personal vault feature seems attractive but it would be a waste of money to subscribe to Office 365 Home or Office 365 Personal when virtually all of those services are included in the Office 365 for Business subscription – basically I would be paying twice for 98% of the services.

  13. 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.

  18. 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…

    現時点では、各ユーザーの OneDrive for Business に保存されるため、各ユーザーが管理者となるため、各ユーザーごとに確認しなければならなく、複数ユーザーがいる場合に現実的ではないです。
    We hope a feature to check the settings currently being used when migrating OneNote Online data to other tenants will be implemented.
    Currently data is stored in each user's OneDrive for Business and each user is the administrator, and every single user needs to be checked, which makes this very impractical when there are multiple users.
