  1. Pooled Storage option for OneDrive Premium Users.

    5 TB total, 1 TB per person is great....but my wife and I share a Premium account. We have 1 heavily used account and 4 at 0% utilization. We share an account to centralize our pictures make for easier search and management of our files. Please give the option to pool the storage so we can take full advantage of the storage available to our account.

      • Update Quota Automatically

        When an administrator assigns a license with greater OneDrive Storage Capacity to a user, this quota is not automatically applied. Despite paying for and assigning the license with the greater capacity our team must use PowerShell to connect to these user's OneDrive sites and manually attempt to reset their quota. The challenge is compounded if a user is already at capacity as it would require having the admin, ask the user to clean up their storage space so that we can then come back and bump the quotas to what, we would have expected to have occurred when we assigned…

          • Regarding the save format of OneNote file stored in OneDrive for Business

            OneDrive for Business に保存している OneNote ファイル を OneNote 2016 で編集する際の保存形式について
            Regarding the save format of OneNote file stored in OneDrive for Business
            ***************
            ■Description(内容):

            OneDrive for Business に保存している OneNote ファイルを 共有設定で編集から閲覧へ変更するなどした際に OneNote 2016 では以前に開いたデータが残りエラーが発生し正常に動作しないため、OneNote の保存形式を Office と同様の保存形式で利用できるように希望します。

            We realized that if users changed permission from shared setting of OneNote file which is stored in OneDrive for Business, the previous opened data is not deleted properly, and users faced unexpected behavior.

            For improvement usability, we hope the feature will be implemented allow users to save OneNote files with same save format as Office client.

            Thank you for…

                  • OneDrive for Business local sync - preventing deletion of files from Sharepoint

                    Allow sync folders for local users with onedrive for business but dont allow them to delete or change locally the files/folders only on website/sharepoint team.

                    This is a urgent configuration thath should be allowed to setup because we cannot controll locally the same way we control on the sharepoint, and prevent users to delete files accidentally.

                    Thanks.

                    • OneDrive Internal Sharing for Non Owners

                      There needs to be a way of setting this at an organizational level. I am able to turn off sharing for non-owners via powershell, however it requires me to create a script to connect to each person's OneDrive, and it leaves the "Allow access requests" unchecked.

                      Goal: Require any re-sharing to be approved by the owner for the entire organization.

                      • 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:

                          • 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.

                            • Add the possibility to add an AzureAD domain to the specific domain list for synchronization

                              We would like to see the option to add AzureAD to the specific domain list, now it's only possible to add on-premise domains, but now with Intune and only azure-ad joined machines I think it would be a nice change. We use SCCM Co-management and Intune. The computers are not on-premise joined but we would like a restriction on what machines OneDrive can be synchronized. To make it work now the only option is to disable the specific domain sync but than we would lose control on what machines the synchronization can be made.

                                同期クライアントで、公開情報に記載の [同期可能なアイテム数] について、該当のアイテム数を超えたら同期ができないようにしてほしい。

                                多数のアイテムを同期しているため、[同期中] [変更を処理しています] などのメッセージのまま、同期が中途半端な状態になると、PC 側とクラウド上のどちらのデータが最新かがわからなくなる。
                                あいまいなままでは利用の際に困るので、アイテム数が制限事項に抵触した場合、明確に [アイテム数が多いために同期できない] などのエラー メッセージを表示させ、同期できないようにしてほしい。

                                Disable syncing in sync client if “number of items that can be synced” limit, which mentioned in Microsoft official, is exceeded.

                                While syncing multiple items simultaneously, we get confused either the latest data is on client or on cloud as syncing process is incomplete state with message stating “Syncing” and “Processing changes”.

                                For improvement of usability and manageability, disable syncing when sync item limit is exceeded, warn users with error message “sync item limit exceeded”.

                                Thank you for…

                                  As an enterprise administrator, I want to deploy OneDrive with absolutely ZERO user interaction.
                                  Following https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/use-group-policy?redirectSourcePath=%252fen-us%252farticle%252fUse-Group-Policy-to-control-OneDrive-sync-client-settings-0ecb2cf5-8882-42b3-a6e9-be6bda30899c we are able to setup OneDrive for our corporate users without them having to enter anything, when combined with odopen://sync/?useremail=youruseremail@<mySSOdomain>.com which will SSO the user into OneDrive. However the user still receives a window where they have to hit 3 buttons -"Sign-in”, “Next”, “Open my OneDrive…”.

                                  As an Enterprise deployment, I would like to avoid prompting the users for anything. I understand this is probably expected behavior, but it is not in line with Microsoft practices of supporting completely silent installation and configuration so…

                                    現時点の OneDrive for Business では、OneDrive for Business の使用容量が設定値に達した場合の通知が、OneDrive for Business を所有するユーザーにしか届かないため管理者で把握ができない。
                                    OneDrive for Business の使用容量が設定値に達した場合は、管理者にも通知されるようにして欲しい。

                                    When users’ OneDrive for Business storage reaches the set storage limit, the notification will be sent to only users, not their admins. That makes it difficult for admins to manage users’ OneDrive for Business storage.

                                    For improvement of manageability, please notify admins as well when a user’s OneDrive for Business storage reached the set storage limit.

                                    Thank you for your consideration.

                                        For a given class of users we need the ability to block the "share with everyone" feature.

                                        • 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.
