  3. 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.

  4. Please unite the sync status icon for File on Demand

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    ファイル オンデマンドの状態アイコンについて
    Please unite the sync status icon for File on Demand


    ■Description(内容):
    現在 OneDrive ファイル オンデマンドでは、ローカル上で利用可能なファイルを表すチェック マークの状態アイコンが 2 種類ある。どちらのアイコンも、同期が完了している状態のアイテムを表しており、結果的に同じ状態に対して 2 種類のアイコンがある。
    同じ同期状態に複数のアイコンがあることで混乱を招く可能性があり、修正してほしい。

    At One Drive File on Demand, currently there are two types of the icon with check mark to indicate the status of files as they are available on the local.

    Both icons tell us that the file is sync and this means there are two kinds of icons for the one status.

    Those icons might make users are confused, so please display the one icon for one status.

    Thank you for your considerations.

  5. OneDrive Personal - Encryption at rest

    Virtually all other cloud storage providers offer encryption at rest and OneDrive for Business does too. There seems no reason why OneDrive Personal users shouldn't also be afforded the exact same level of security, especially those of us paying a subscription for the service. Perhaps it could be made an additional benefit of an Office 365 subscription if the desire is not there to offer it to free users. However, with Microsoft's resources and apparent desire to champion security of user data, encryption at rest for OneDrive Personal feels a bizarre missing piece to the puzzle.

  6. Lag on ODFB usage reports

    The ODFB reports on Admin portal usually have a lag of 2 days, can you do something about it so that an organization can pull real time data? Atleast for a targeted set of users, so that one can identify how many files for a user have synced. A lag of 2 hours is okay but 2 days is really too much.

    Each report has a date for when this report was generated. The reports usually reflect a 24 to 48 hour latency from time of activity. Note: At times there may be…

  7. 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

    By default, when going over 90% of the upper usage cap on OneDrive for Business, a notification mail is sent, but we would like to be able to change that value, and set this as a new default value.
    If new users are added, instead of having to set this value again each time, it should be set to an initially configured default, and then if that value is exceeded…

    ユーザー単位でも [ファイルの統計情報] のエクスポートを可能とする機能の実装を希望します。

    I would like to see the feature to export [Statistics for Files] of OneDrive for Business for each user.
    Exporting Office 365 audit logs by admins is working as a workaround, but it would be great if exporting [Statistics for Files] of each user is available as well.

  12. Maybe have a two-step verification established on every logon/install?

    Every time you logon to a computer (Home/Work) have an established two-step verification to your mobile phone or email. This way no one else will have access to your personal files.

    For improvement of usability, I hope you to add the feature that allows us to sort by page name.

  15. Refine policy control for file exclusions via MDM / GPO / Portal

    Please consider adding an option to control file-type exclusions at a level where we can apply different policies to different groups , device types.

    I'll explain , currently our tenant is shared for a large enterprise with a few subsidiaries running off the tenant , we were planning to utilize OneDrive redirection of known folders (Documents / Desktop) , however due to reported problems with PST's and large files , we hoped to exclude OST & PST files from Onedrive.

    However exclude settings appear to be tenant wide , it would be preferred to set this policy for a selected…

  16. Variable time-out times for OneDrive Vault

    The automatic time-out for OneDrive Vault works great for work from phones and tablets, and while traveling, but when I'm sitting at my desk at home working on my Windows-10 desktop computer, I often need to work with the files in the Vault for an hour or more. Please allow an option (perhaps on the Open Vault request form) to specify how long we want the Vault to be open.

    アイテム保持ポリシーの設定について、保持と削除が存在している場合、保持が優先される動作となるが、必要に応じて保持と削除のポリシーが同時に動作できるように機能の拡充を希望します。
    具体的には最終更新日時から半年が経過したアイテムは削除されるが、最終更新日時から一年間はアイテム保管ライブラリで保持する動作を実現したい。
    When using item retention policies, in cases where both a deletion and retention policy exists at the same time, the retention policy takes precedence, but we would like for both the retention and deletion policies to work at once.
    Basically, we would like items to be deleted 6 months after their last updated date, but for items to be held in the item retention library for one year from their last date of update.

  18. Protect against accidental deletions with a "permanent" file attribute.

    Create a file attribute called "permanent" so that a OneDrive file/folder can only be deleted online with a browser, not from a OneDrive client device.

  20. Please increase the number of free files in Personal Vault

    Since you can only have a maximum of three files without a premium plan in the Personal Vault, I can't do anything with the vault. Please increase the number of possible files.
