  1. Secure transfer of data between Office365 and organisational EMS products.

    The current pandemic has lead to a great increase in the number of company employees remote working. Typically a company has an Enterprise Management System using Office365 as its office productivity suite and they are not integrated. While within the company's physical and IT security the risk of transferring files between these systems is manageable.

    Now that is not the case, employees are working remotely on company or privately owned PCs and often the only way to transfer a file from Onedrive to the EMS is by the worker downloading it to their local hard drive and then uploading it…

  3. Ability to assign a contingent of Data to each Familymember Account

    We use the FamilyPack (6 Users, 1 TB each).

    It's great value for us, but we are only 4 People and everyone has different needs when it comes to storing our Data.

    I'd like to be able to freely assign how much of the 6TB included in our plan everyone can use. Because as it is now, we pay for 6TB but can only ever use 4TB. Having to create another account just to utilize the remaining space is a hassle.

  4. Don't make private files public when using Version history!

    Create any file, for example test1.txt. Adjust a few times every few minutes so that you see at least 3 files or more at the Version History option. The most recent version is not downloadable, the very first creates a secure private link: the domain of the download link has random letters, such as vzzvea.am.files.1drv.com and a login is also required to download it .

    However, for all versions in between, a public link is produced, which does not require a login. The domain will then be public.am.files.1drv.com.

  11. Admin report for OneDrive User's Folder Structure and their size

    We have command line in Microsoft Exchange Server "Get-MailboxFolderStatistics". Upon using it with appropriate switches like "Get-MailboxFolderStatistics -Identity "xyz@abc.com" | FT Name,FolderAndSubfolderSize,ItemsInFolderAndSubfolders,FolderPath", it can filter all user's mailbox folders and subfolders with their respective size. We need similar functionality in OneDrive for Business for admins. Imagine a scenario where admin needs to user based storage and wants to share report with an end user about folder based storage, there is no provision as such currently.

    It is possible to find and fix duplicated user accounts using tools in the Microsoft 365 admin center, but in cases such as where many user accounts have been created, doing this one-by-one is not realistic, so please add a way to check all duplicated user accounts at once.

    When clicking on “View online” in the OneDrive client, the browser set in Windows’ “Default programs” is run, but this affects things other than OneDrive, so we do not want to change the default browser.
    Please add a way to specify which browser is used when opening items in this way.

  16. You should establush the ability for users to see which devices are signed into their account and let users sign out of any device.

    You would be able to check and logout of one drive on your work computer from your home computer.

  17. Under "manage access", options ought to be given to administrator whether another can "add only" documents

    I have a situation where I would not want another user to delete files but would like to give them access to view and add documents. Hence, it would be good to have additional options for the administrator.

    Would it be possible to filter file types by extension, i.e. not sync .exe, files by policy?
