  1. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. Differentiate icon between OneDrive for Business and OneDrive Personal

    Create end-user clarity between OneDrive for Business and OneDrive Personal by having different icon colors and labels to help distinguish between the two storage places.

  5. 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.

  7. 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

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

    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…

    Currently only able to get 100GB storage in the Middle East. Since I already have Office 2019, no need and don't want Office 365, but do need more OneDrive storage. Why no 1TB available? Policy?

  15. 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.

  16. Dedupe

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

  18. Option for Administrator to monitor file restore jobs. Users call wanting an update as to when it will be done.

    I'd like the option for Administrators to be able to monitor File restore jobs and receive a notification when its completed. Keeping the web tab open isn't always going to be practical. Also, a rough time estimate would be helpful. Big difference between 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week. 1 month. thank you.

  19. Enable another option to blocking syncing file using file names

    Please add blocking syncing of specific file by file names aswell not only file types,
    Please this Feature to be reviewed and hopefully added, as i believe its a very smart idea to have file blocked by names aswell.

  20. Show onedrive standalone 100gb plan in app

    When I want to upgrade my basic onedrive account, I'm being suggested only the Microsoft 365 personal/family plans and not the standalone 100gb plan. I had to go to Microsoft browser to subscribe to my desired plan - standalone 100gb.
    I find this misleading as unaware users are being directed to costlier plans without even being notified about the other cheaper plan.
    Is this part of funneling customers to the higher priced plans?
    I agree with the premium versions, you get extra productivity tools but for users like me who need only a secure storage space, this is quite misleading!
