    • The management of devices that is able to sync or even log in

      I sometimes forget to log out the onedrive at other computers. Is there any way to log out it remotely? It will be great if the devices can be managed. User can manage which device can sync and which can not. And even force them to log out.

      • Litigation Hold on Account - Don't need a license to keep OneDrive Info

        Currently, if someone in our company gets put on a Litigation hold, and they want us to keep their OneDrive for Business files, we would like to not have it eat up a license to keep the files. This is similar to how Mail acts the same way.

        • OneDrive mobile client support for Azure Information Protection (AIP) protected documents

          Currently when you attempt to view an AIP protected document in the iOS mobile client (presuming its the same for Android clients), the document fails to show and OneDrive shows a message stating:

          "The file can't be displayed. Make sure that you're connected to a WiFi or mobile network".

          The user then has to have the Word (or other Office app) client installed on their mobile device and then click on the Word icon to access the document.

          My suggestion/request is that the mobile client should be AIP label and policy aware and able to open the document preview, just…

          • Add an "Employee Terminated" Field to AD and Microsoft O365 Accounts

            This request would have a big impact on both Exchange administration and OneDrive administration. Historically there has not been an avenue within AD to mark an account as terminated, other than maybe changing the account description field or utilizing the Exchange Custom Attributes. So you have an employee that leaves, maybe make the description change, and disable the account. You might grant the manager access to the former employee's mailbox for a period of time, and eventually delete the user account. In prior versions of SharePoint, a disabled account might trigger the Mysite deletion process which in O365 has become…

            • Azure report from OneDrive

              We have company secrets in drawing files. I need a report from Azure to show all users with a certain file extension in their OneDrive. I would like the filename, file extension, date added to OneDrive. Also a option to email this report from the console.

              • Silent KFM not working when there is a "problem", but wont tell the user or the admin.

                We've been testing out OneDrive KFM, and its not working when there is a problem with one of the know folders, it could be a Symlink or "illegal" file type, .pst etc.
                It would be nice to have a dashboard that wrote these errors from the deployment, so we could take action on it, instead of not knowing why it isn't deploying.

                • Encrypt on local hard drive

                  As a organization we’d like the ability to have the whole local OneDrive for Business folder encrypted, so that even if another administrator logs on, they wouldn’t be able to access the data. We can enable bitlocker for the hard drive but we cannot prevent the scenario with local admins, as they can just take ownership of the user profile folder.

                  • A businessplan for one user and at least 5 TB of storage

                    Small datadriven businesses still often need more than 1 TB of storage, but it is not viable to pay for 5 userlicenses.

                    • OneDrive Notification when Freezing for Inactivity

                      Hi,

                      It would be nice to receive a notification when you are about to freeze my OneDrive account for inactivity. Moreover, I was using it. The app is installed on my phone and my laptop. I have files stored, that I some times look at. I suspect you consider me inactive just because I did not change the contents of the folder, but that doesn't mean I am not using it.

                      I was reinstalling my OS, and when I tried to login to the OneDrive app, it said I have to go to the website. The website told me that…

                      • Getting list of all site collection admins for OneDrive

                        Currently, there no way to fetch a list of all site collection admins of all OneDrive account. The only way to check it is by going to Admin Portal and checking it for each and every user.

                        PowerShell (Set-SPOUser) allows to add new site collection admins to SharePoint sites and OneDrive. However, Get-SPOUser doesn't get the site collection admins unless the admin account is already site collection admin on the OneDrive.

                        It would be great to have some way for admins to fetch a list of all site collection admins either using script or GUI.

                        Thank you.

                          • Service-by-Service Enablement of Multifactor Authentication

                            I would like to enable Multi-factor authentication, but am I mistaken in that is an all-or-nothing proposition? I would like the ability to turn on MFA just for OneDrive... I don't want to turn it on and then have to mess with App Passwords, enforcement of MFA when trying to use my Xbox, or even Outlook.com for that matter. I would like to apply MFA on a service-by-service basis, as I need sit based upon my usage, where I may/may not have sensitive information, etc.

                            Can you consider this enhancement, please? Or is it available nad I just haven't looked…

                                  When you have prompted users to use KFM user can decide to do so or not. Currently there's no way to check how many users in organisation decided to move Windows Known Folders. This would be very useful for testing before using silently KFM.
