  1. Creating a Static Link which does not include Personal Information when sharing files.

    OneDrive "get link" URL contains personally-identifiable information. The URL that OneDrive gives you, when you share a folder, or file, contains both the organization name, as well as your personal email address.
    "https://<your organization>-my.sharepoint.com/personal/<your email address>/_layouts/15/guestaccess.aspx?folderid=1fc523d2004e243e5b01f8444a25aa921&authkey=ATiR2GckBFQK9-Tl8u4Q6bM"

    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.

  5. Add an option for whether or not to change OneDrive for Business URLs after changing UPN

    Add an option for whether or not to change OneDrive for Business URLs after changing UPN


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、UPN を変更すると、自動的に OneDrive for Business の URL も変更され、今までに発行した共有リンクで、他のユーザーがアイテムにアクセスできなくなります。
    また、Teams 上のチャットで共有したファイルも URL 変更に伴いアクセスできなくなるため、共有したいアイテムはアップロードのし直しが必要となります。
    上記により業務上の工数が増えること、またユーザーの混乱を招きかねないことから、UPN 変更後に OneDrive for Business の URL を変更しない選択を可能にする機能を希望します。

    Currently if the UPN is changed, OneDrive for Business URLs are automatically changed, and users lose the ability to access items via already-issued links.
    Also, the URLs of files shared in Teams chats are changed, and so access to these is also lost, requiring the reupload of items you want to share. …

  6. Change external sharing setting, which is more permissive for some users than default

    Some users needs more permissive sharing settings for sharing files (e.g. "Anyone"). The default set in the Admin Center should be less permissive (e. g. "New and existing guests").
    Problem: If you set the external sharing setting "Anyone" in Admin Center, each new user's sharing settings has to be changed to "New and existing guests".

    Please provide an option, to assign a more permissive sharing setting for some users than the default in Admin Center.

    Currently, the SharePoint Admin Center and OneDrive Admin Center have a setting to allow or disallow "Apps that don't use modern authentication". I would like to see a provision to allow setting the allow/disallow state individually on both SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business.

  9. 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…

  10. Increase F1/F3 ODFB Storage Limit from 2GB to 100GB or more

    Increase F1/F3 ODFB Storage Limit from 2GB to 100GB or more. 2GB is not enough storage for field users and trying to engineer solutions around this limit is time-consuming and inefficient.

  11. Exceeding sync item limit

    ■Title(件名):

    Exceeding sync item limit


    ■Description(内容):
    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”.

  13. Remote Logout

    If you log in to OneDrive from a PC, you tend to remain signed in, yet the ability to remotely log off a device or session is strangely missing. This makes your files vulnerable to access or deletion.

    Other services, such as Google Drive, have this capability.

    Example: You're at a friend's house and you use their PC to log in to OneDrive and download something, but don't click 'logoff.' Your friend now has access to all of your OneDrive files and can read, change, or delete the files. With remote logoff, you could use your app or PC to…

  17. Option to set one specific folder "Always keep on this device" in intune and GPO

    It would be great if admins can set the value "always keep on this device" for a specific folder in the OneDrive of all users in the company.

    We can use this for example to place UE-V files.

    If possible, can it be set with a GPO or Intune or both.
