  1. Option to sync specific file types by extension.

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

  3. notification when opening/downloading/uploaded shared file on OneDrive

    currently the user receives a notification only when the OneDrive shared link is clicked.
    It would be very important to also receive notification every time when the file is downloaded, uploaded or opened

  4. A simple method for Admins to Create Groups of user with different Sharing Polocies

    As an Admin, I only appear to be able to change external sharing policies for every user in the Tennant for my Business. I would like to make groups of users with different policies for sharing documents externally. Maybe there is a way of doing this and I a, just being daft.

  5. Voice code word: TruSt 'keeping the fakes away and stopping abuse.'

    Voice enchanced security with a secret word of the users choosing setup by them will help keep those who are not authorized out.

    And if any possible change the user could be allowed to call or email the company 2 call them and ask for that secret code in which they would only know and they could be able to do so in private when they are alone To keep their privacy secure and update each time there is an error or problem so they can know, there accounts are safe from the fraudsters that perform account take over

  6. Give access to all 6TB of storage

    Let us access all 6TB that come with the Microsoft Office 365 Family Plan. Let the main user (who is PAYING for it) allocate the storage amongst users.

    I get the idea from a Sales point of view. That 6TB looks great - until I realized I can’t access it all. I’m the main user, but only have 1TB, so now I have to pay for more storage. It’s really hard to swallow when I’m paying for 5TB I can’t access. Give me even 2TB more. Something. And I’m not interested in setting up 5 fake accounts to do this.…

  8. Add Security key to log into Personal Vault

    When logging into my "Personal Vault" (from windows, by rightclicking on OneDrive icon in the taskbar and selecting Personal Vault) a code is sent to my secondary email, which I should then copy-paste into the log in window in order to continue.

    Suggestion: add a security key there, similar as to when accessing Personal Vault online thru onedrive.live.com

  10. For Netherlands : allow Digid for accesscontrol

    I have a suggestion on access control:

    In the Netherlands government web access e.g. to fill in your tax are controlled by Digid. This is a secure system which almost all inhabitants of the Netherlands use.

    The advantage of Digid are that :
    - If a user looses there credentials then they can contact the Dutch government to get your credentials back.
    - Almost all residents of the Netherlands have a digid account.
    - It is secure.

    It is already used by e.g. Dutch medical insurance companies to allow web access for there clients.

    You can get more details on…

  11. Personal Vault in OneDrive needs better access support

    I'm currently having issues with my Personal Vault and wish there's someone from Microsoft OneDrive who can further assist me faster vs. getting transfer around, and still no one able to help or know what the problem is.

    The issue started when I could not send a code to my email to get access to our company's Personal Vault so I've decided to change the security information from Email to Phone Number hoping that it would fix the issue. However, that made it worse. Unbeknownst to me, there's a waiting period of 30 DAYS for the changes to take effect…

  12. Allow Export of OneDrive Details from App Admin Center

    Currently in preview there is an option to see all details for the OneDrive sync client in the App Admin Center but no method of exporting the data as a whole or individually. It would be great if we could get an option to export the data with the error types so that in case of any error, it can be resolve where we would know the issue with detail in an exported csv file.

  13. Merge all OneDrive/ SharePoint into Office App Admin Center

    *** the Office ecosystem is pulled together more, allow for all applications (OneDrive, Teams, M365 Apps, Office Add-ins) to be manage from the Office App Admin Center so that enterprise teams can have a central location for managing all aspects of M365 within an organization. Right now, to deploy an add-in you need someone with Global or Exchange Admin rights when that should be with the Office app admin role. Same with managing OneDrive client settings and policies. Retention and restoration should be moved to the Office App Admin Center.

  14. Open Source Code with real privacy needed

    Need a more secure data privacy system. With Windows 10 telemetry and microsoft's automatic back-doors into your system, ALL your "private" data is actually not private at all.

  17. Terrible logic when sharing a folder on OneDrive. Preference not for email address added as family in account.

    I was sharing a folder on OneDrive with my family and I was disappointed to find that for one of my family email address was picked from contact list but email address provided in Account/Subscription was not picked. It was not even recognized even though it should be in my contacts. I have a premium office subscription and have my family with their Outlook email addresses added in there. However, when sharing anything with my family I have to enter their outlook email addresses manually. This is terrible logic when sharing. It is worse to find that these email address…
