  1. Delete and download button shouldn’t be together in the menu options.

    It is easy to accidentally press the delete button when you are downloading something.

    Regarding cases where there is no way to send sharing authentication codes to external users who do not have an Exchange mail account


    ■Description(内容):
    Exchange メールアカウントを持たない外部のユーザーへ共有リンクを送信した場合、検証コードを受信することができずコードの確認が行えない状況です。
    メールアカウントを持たない外部のユーザーへ OneDrive for Business 上のアイテムの共有を行った場合も、共有先のユーザーが検証コードの受信が行えるように、機能の実装をお願いいたします。

    If a sharing link is sent to an external user who does not have an Exchange mail account, a verification code cannot be sent and therefore it is not possible for them to confirm said code.
    Even if an item is shared with such a user from OneDrive for Business, we would like to be able to send them the authentication code, so please…

  5. Prevent users from changing the location of their OneDrive folder does not work with ADMX

    Prevent users from changing the location of their OneDrive folder option in the admx is not working. The admx makes the keys reg_sz and and onedrive does not react on that. If ik make the policy settings with preverences and use the docuemtned reg-dword. it works.

  7. Fix security for OneDrive Folders & Files on Android.

    OneDrive app for Android is giving users a false sense of security. You can enable a password, or on certain devices, fingerprint security or facial recognition to unlock OneDrive. But if the user has installed Word Mobile, or Excel Mobile, all OneDrive folders and files are accessible without any password, fingerprint or other security. There is no way to limit the Word mobile or Excel mobile apps on Android from having access to OneDrive folders and files. So any security for OneDrive is completely bypassed.
    If one were to lose one's device, the whole idea of requiring security is so…

  9. NOT SYNCING EVERYTHING ON ONEDRIVE

    I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT WANT TO USE GOOGLE CHROME. I HAVE DELETED GOOGLE CHROME FROM MY DEVICE AS IT COMPLETELY SLOWED DOWN MY SYSTEM/DEVICE ENTIRELY. VERY FRUSTRATING AND ANNOYING. TOO MUCH TIME IS WASTED WITH CHROME.

  11. Allow subdirectories within OneDrive to be flagged as no sync

    Lightroom writes its temp files/thumbnails to a subdirectory within my Lightroom directory on OneDrive. All the temp files sync, taking up a lot of unncessary space. I want to flag the directory as sync disabled so it doesn't roam via onedrive

  13. Show all the accessible sites for each user on the “Sites” feature at OneDrive apps

    OneDrive アプリの "サイト" 項目にフォロー中ではなくアクセス権限のあるすべてのサイトを表示して欲しい
    Show all the accessible sites for each user on the “Sites” feature at OneDrive apps


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint サイトの中にはアクセス頻度が低いサイトもあるため、すべてのサイトをフォローして OneDrive アプリの "サイト" に表示させるのは手間がかかる。
    また、チーム サイトはテナント内の全ユーザーがアクセスできるサイトでありながら手動でフォローが必要なため、OneDrive アプリの "サイト” 機能をフォローをして表示させる機能ではなく、サインインしているユーザーにアクセス権限のあるサイトの一覧を表示させる機能にして欲しい。

    Currently, users need to follow each site to display it on the “Sites” feature at OneDrive apps, even though user’s frequency of access is very low for some of those sites.
    Also, in spite of all users allowed to access Team Site, users need to follow it manually.

    Those behavior are time-consuming for users, so that we would like you to enable users seeing the…

  19. Path of file in info

    Searching a file via common specifications (e.g.: Rome municipality, conifers, article1.pdf) can gives various proposed file, but do not offer (at least in the info) the path of the file: they make it cumbersome to discern between multiple editions of the file, different topics and folders (shared or not), and in general recognize at a glance the exact location (in my case factor of productivity) become a complicated task.
    So please Just add those infos where it's supposed to find their.

  20. Dedupe

    Duplicate items no way to easily clean up. I'll assume because you want us to pay more for additional space.
