  1. Provide us to delete local cash files automatically when file on demand is enabled

    ■Title(件名):
    ファイル オンデマンド機能を有効にした際に、ローカルに保持されるキャッシュ ファイルを自動で削除する機能について。
    Provide us to delete local cash files automatically when file on demand is enabled


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business のファイル オンデマンド機能を有効にし、ローカル上にアイテムを保持した場合 "空き容量を増やす" にて ハードディスクの容量を軽くすることができますが、同期フォルダー上に一定期間 (指定した期間) 使用していないファイルがある場合に、自動で "空き容量を増やす" 機能について実装をお願いします。

    I would like to see the feature to “increase storage space” if there are unused files for certain period (specified period) at sync folder automatically.
    At current feature, we need to enable file on demand for OneDrive for Business and save items on the local to make more space for hard disk with “increase storage space” option.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    バージョン管理機能の範囲について。
    Let us enable versioning for a folder and file as well


    ■Description(内容):
    バージョン管理機能を使用する場合、SharePoint Online では "リスト" "ライブラリ" 単位で設定が可能。
    また、OneDrive for Business では "ライブラリ" 単位で設定が可能ですが、"フォルダー" および "ファイル" 単位でも細かく設定ができるよう、機能の実装をお願いします。

    I would like to configure versioning not only for a library, but also for a folder and file at both SharePoint and OneDrive for Business.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  4. Please extend the limitation of file paths for the sync on OneDrive for Business

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    OneDrive for Business における同期の 400 文字の上限の引き上げについて
    Please extend the limitation of file paths for the sync on OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):
    以下の公開情報に、SharePoint Online および OneDrive for Business における同期の制限事項に、ファイル名のパスに、400 文字まで設定することが可能と記載がある。

    <参考情報>
    タイトル : ファイルおよびフォルダーを同期する際の制限事項
    アドレス : https://support.microsoft.com/ja-jp/help/3125202/
    ----------以下抜粋----------
    SharePoint Online では、ファイル名のパスに、400 文字まで設定することができます。 一部のシナリオ (特に、ライブラリに非常に長い URL パスを設定している場合) では、文字数の制限が 400 文字を下回る場合があります。
    ---------抜粋ここまで---------

    しかしながら、日本語などのダブル バイト文字を使用している場合、Office Online や Office クライアント等で Office 対応ドキュメントを開く際に、ブラウザー側でダブル バイト文字はエンコードされ、 1 文字につきシングル バイト文字換算の 9 文字として計算されるため、すぐに 400 文字の条件に達してしまいます。
    そのため、400 文字の上限値を引き上げをお願い致します。

    We understand that file name paths are able to have maximum 400 characters on SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business as below information mention.

  5. Prevent the ability to delete the location being synced in explorer until syncing has stopped.

    When a user selects the location they are syncing in the explorer navigation pane they should not be able to delete this folder or selecting delete should automatically stop the sync and then remove the folder. Currently pressing delete prompts them that the folder will be permanently removed from their computer but doesn't let them know that the Onedrive sync client will go-ahead and delete all the contents of that folder in SharePoint as well.

  6. Option for OneDrive to Skip Backup of Select Folders, without deleting them from our computers.

    Folders like ".git", "tmp", "cache" should never be backed up. They are easily regenerated and there is no logical reason to backup these folders ever. These folders need to be skipped.

    Currently we have the option to not backup certain folders but they will be deleted from our computers if we do. How about allow us to keep the folder on our computers and OneDrive...simply ignores it.

    Allow administrators to check sync status of each user for OneDrive for Business


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business 同期クライアントを様々な地域で展開するにあたって、組織内のユーザーの同期状態を管理者が確認できる機能を提供してほしい。

    同期できていない PC がある場合、管理者が即座に把握し対処できるよう、同期エラーが発生した際に通知を送る機能やエラーの履歴をクライアントに残すような機能を追加してほしい。

    We would like you to allow administrators to check sync status of each users in the organization for deploying OneDrive for Business sync client for users in various sites.

    It would be better if we have the notification alert or error logs on the client side when there is sync error. So that Administrator will be able to see the machine with failing sync and work for it.

    Thank you for…

  10. Improve deleted user notice to reporting manager

    The plain-text, single paragraph notice is hard for many users to understand. Consider breaking up into several chunked paragraphs.

    An example of how this might be done is listed here:

  12. Disable Pause/Stop Sync for OneDrive for Business

    Disable Pause/Stop Sync for OneDrive for Business

    This is critical as some of our users are pausing the sync when they should not be. They dont realize this replaced folder redirection and if they are not syncing new data it will be lost in the event of a computer failure.

    This ensures the less likely hood of user data being lost.

  13. OneDrive for Business local sync - preventing deletion of files from Sharepoint

    Allow sync folders for local users with onedrive for business but dont allow them to delete or change locally the files/folders only on website/sharepoint team.

    This is a urgent configuration thath should be allowed to setup because we cannot controll locally the same way we control on the sharepoint, and prevent users to delete files accidentally.

    Thanks.
