  1. View/Report on files with multiple versions

    It's important for us to know if there are multiple versions of files so that we can manage them correctly. Currently you have to inspect each file to see if there are additional versions kept. To be able to filter on these on have a column displaying this information would be a good start

  2. Better explanation of end-to-end encryption "implied" but not described explicitly as being part of Personal Vault.

    Bitlocker security for Personal Vault - make it user cloud bitlocked drive just as local drive.

  3. Lock down Local OndDrive sync folder.

    We are requesting that the entire local OneDrive folder be locked down to the data owner. We would like this done via Group Policy and/or through an option in the OneDrive client install. There should also be a way to enforce it.

  4. travel advisory

    I get shut out of my account two-three times a week when I travel. It's maddening at best and debilating at worst. What if you allowed users to preregister their travel plans to avoid new ip locations looking suspicious.

  6. Transfer data from personal onedrive to business

    I need to transfer my data from my personal onedrive account to my new O365 for business account. I have 83Gb of data and another user to go. The only way I can find to do this is download the data from personal to hardrive and then upload to business. This is time consuming and waste of data allowance and killing my bandwith. Why is there not a back-of-house method to do this?

  7. Require OS passcode

    Rather than the currently-offered "require app passcode" policy, offer a policy that works similarly to the Outlook Mobile app, where the app doesn't have its own unique passcode, but refuses to function until you have set a passcode in the OS of the mobile device.

  8. La atención proporcionada por Miriam la considero irrespetuosa e inapropiada, ademas de una falta de empatía con el cliente inaceptable

    Revisen los correos de su agente /Miriam) pues imagino que esa falta de empatía conmigo es común en su compartamiento

  9. Please be sure to delete the "Documents" and "Attachments" folders.

    The 'Documents' folder and the 'Attachments' folder are created automatically. These folders are the default paths that can not be created or deleted.
    However, I do not use these folders.

    Please be sure to delete the "Documents" and "Attachments" folders.

  11. Activity Log

    OneDrive should have an activity log to track file changes (e.g. new file, renaming/deleting of files). Dropbox has implemented years ago.

  12. Developers. Ask the question. If you had discovered the formula of how to change lead to gold would you entrust this formula to OneDrive?

    If you would not then how do you expect others to entrust their secrets? And yes, everyone has secrets.

  13. You need to put out a disclaimer notice ASAP!

    Yesterday I rec'd over 40 calls supposedly from "Apple Inc" telling me my "cloud" was causing a severe security risk to my Apple products. Altho I KNEW it was a scam (because I own no Apple products), others might not. Found out today that many other friends also rec'd those same annoying repeat calls all day long & even into the night until around 8 pm yesterday. I blocked every number they used to call me, but they would then just roll over to another number for their robo-dialer to use to constantly harass me (as they did to my…

  15. It is very difficult and non-intuitive to make a shared file "view only" instead of "can edit". This needs to be fixed

    Make it easier to designate shared files "view only" instead of "can edit". This really needs to be fixed. It takes multiple tries because it is very non-intuitive at present.

  16. Control internal and external shared links

    I want to be able to control automatically all shared links in the organization by "setting" an expiration date. Actually we use a script the use Graph. They inspect all shared links in the Graph Delta items collection and:
    destroy all external shared links if they are 7 days old for external shared
    destroy all internal shared links if they are 30 old and resend an automatic invitation to "poke" both person: the sender and the receiver. Internal shared links can be use with our 6 emails domains.
    be able to monitoring all shared activity by group (user and AD…

  17. Provide GPO as separate download

    Our computers has already installed OneDrive and we must uninstall and reinstall to just download latest GPO templates. So please, just published them on Microsoft Download Center like every other team (Office, Windows). Thanks

  18. File Encryption for OneDrive Personal Users

    File Encryption for OneDrive personal users

    Microsoft needs to offer file encryption for its personal users as they do for business customers. We pay for a service and I would feel more confident if I didn't have to use a 3rd party app to encrypt my personal data on OneDrive.

  20. "Wants to Access" notification needs more details

    The request for access notification (email when a user request access to a OneDrive or SharePoint) needs to provide more information. Especially the actual file/folder.

    Details: Had an external user that requested access to a users OneDrive Folder. More than likely in error as they were previously sent a link to an actual file. The request only show the tenantname-my-sharepoint.com No further information was mentioned. After researching the audit logs, I was able to determine the user was sent the link and what OneDrive(OD4B) the user was attempting to access. Would be nice if the email would display the full…
