  1. 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.

  3. Ransomware Protection. Only Major Public Cloud provide not to provide data encryption at rest is OneDrive

    Microsoft OneDrive is the only insecure personal storage out of GoogleDrive, Dropbox not to encrypt the data at risk to prevent ransomware. Everyone should demand this. 2 Factor authentication is not enough. check any of the top 5 providers to see they all offer 2 Factor and data encryption at risk for the free tier of personal storage.

    This needs to be fixed ASAP. Please upvote to protect yourself.

  4. 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?

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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. Allow for disabling of Versioning, and decrease lower bound threshold of versions to significantly reduce my data usage and save money

    The automatic non optional versioning is making me use more data than I need. This is the same for many other companies.

    Give this option so customers can decide what to value, space or back up.

  12. Be able to sync shared folders in pc desktop/laptop Windows

    As a user with folders shared with me,
    I'd like to select folders from other personal onedrive accounts in my onedrive desktop app and select as many folders I want to sync with my pc,
    For a better user experience.

    As a user sharing folders,
    I'd like to select if folders that I shared cannot be sync with personal pcs with onedrive desktop app,
    For security

  13. 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.

  14. Restricting downloads in OneDrive for Business

    Restricting downloads in OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business はユーザー自身が管理者という位置づけのため、自身の OneDrive for Business のダウンロードを制御することができないが、全体管理者側にて制御ができるよう、機能の拡充を要望します。

    Since users on OneDrive for Business are administrators themselves, there is no way to restrict downloading from their own OneDrive, so please add a way for global admins to enact such restrictions.

  15. 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.

  17. 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…

  19. 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.
