  1. OneDrive for Business: Revise the "Access Files" feature in the Microsoft 365 admin center

    Currently, admins with the SharePoint administrator role can easily access the personal OneDrive for Business library of other users in the same tenant following the steps described below:

    - Search for the user in the Microsoft 365 admin center
    - Click on "OneDrive Settings"
    - Click on "Access files"

    Subsequently, the admin performing these steps is added as site collection admin to the OneDrive for Business site collection of the user.

    While we trust each other within our team, this feature might be a huge concern to other people in the company. In addition, users might lose trust in Office…

  6. manager

    Change the OneDrive retention and deletion process..
    OneDrive deletion process should be disabled by default. -> "If a manager is specified for the deleted account, the manager will receive an email telling them they have access to the OneDrive, and that the OneDrive will be deleted at the end of the retention period."
    The manager field is in Active Directory, on users objects.

  8. Increase Storage Limit After Each Subscription Renovation

    It would be great to have our storage limit increased with each subscription renovation, maybe 30 ~ 50% per year?

  9. Option to fully ignore symlinks (symbolic links)

    I would normally upload source code for various projects to synchronize between my desktop and laptop however there are plenty of vendor packages which are redundant that can be symlinked and/or updated via the Internet.

    Having an option to ignore symlinked directories within onedrive would solve this issue quite easily at near zero development cost on your end. The only gotcha is synching this option between all logged in onedrive instances.

  12. Eliminate Security Issues Created by Incompatible Storage Features

    File management has been a nightmare for years and OneDrive is making things more complicated by adding to the number of extra steps we have to take in order to have a somewhat consistent experience. Here are just a few problems:

    Storing your files on an NTFS drive lets you encrypt, compress, view zip file as regular folder, set permissions, file history, use bitlocker, file tagging, customize data shown in columns, file attributes, using time stamps for various automated or auditing purposes, LAN sharing over SMB 2/3, and offline caching. All of these features can often be put to good…

  13. 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.

  14. Allow syncing only on computers joined to a local workgroup

    Allow only syncing on PC's connected to an Azure domain. The setting is in OneDrive Admin but it only works for local AD domains. It doesn't say that so it is very confusing but I found an article on that from a third party and Microsoft agreed it was true. Allow only syncing on PC's connected to an Azure domain.

  15. 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.

  16. Optimizing the Order of File Transfer

    Optimizing the Order of File Transfer
    Arrange the order of files according to the requirements.
    First download or upload the latest files, then download or upload the old files, and finally process the deleted files.
    This will prevent the current amendments and new documents from being processed in a timely manner.

  17. 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.

  18. Add local network/LAN sync so that my OneDrive Syncing PCs on my local network don't need to round trip to the cloud to share updates

    Allow OneDrive to be aware of other machines on the local network and sync changes directly between them to save the round trip to the cloud for every change

  19. Pricing range, cheaper and more variety

    Adding variety of pricing for One Drive. For now the OneDrive pricing is way too high for Indonesian market. Google taking away the market with cheaper option, let's say, 50gb on OneDrive is 31k IDR, where 100gb google drive is 25k IDR per month, with only 249k per year. the office bundling is just not everyone use, even I know it's way powerful then Google offer, but the Android and iOS version is way behind the desktop version, and way less capable than the Google Docs.
