  1. Update Quota Automatically

    When an administrator assigns a license with greater OneDrive Storage Capacity to a user, this quota is not automatically applied. Despite paying for and assigning the license with the greater capacity our team must use PowerShell to connect to these user's OneDrive sites and manually attempt to reset their quota. The challenge is compounded if a user is already at capacity as it would require having the admin, ask the user to clean up their storage space so that we can then come back and bump the quotas to what, we would have expected to have occurred when we assigned…

  2. Add extra storage to OneDrive user

    Using a Office 365 Home subscription, you get 1 TB OneDrive space for each user - currently 6 users in total. I suggest making it possible to increase the storage for each user, surely for an extra fee or montly cost or similar. As it is now, users has no chance adding extra TB and therefore they are stock at 1 TB.

  4. Adjust the notification message generated when multiple files are moved or deleted.

    Ability to adjust the message "Heads up! We noticed that you recently deleted a large number of files from a site". Also the ability to set a minimum number of files before the alert is triggered.

    The message is causing confusion when users move files as they are get picked up as being deleted.

  13. Disable external OneDrive sharing per user

    Disable external OneDrive sharing per user

    When users leave our company, we want to disable external sharing on that user only. In the O365 Admin console there is an option for this. However, the setting is overwritten by the tenant settings.
    We need more granular control on external sharing

  14. Let us use alternate libraries from the default "Documents"

    Inside Onedrive for Business, we are currently able to go to "Site Contents" and add additional libraries, which currently works for integrations with other products such as Dynamics 365, however we have been told that alternate libraries inside OneDrive are being deprecated and will no longer be supported.
    This decision to deprecate alternate libraries should be reversed for several reasons including the fact that it contradicts the existing limitations on the number of items that can exist in a single library.
    Let us continue using alternate libraries inside OneDrive for Business, as we need this to continue being supported going…

  15. 从电脑上删除文件夹同步优化

    当我在我的电脑上删除了一个文件夹,然后去回收站看的时候是一个文件一个文件删除的,如果我文件夹下面文件过多,这将对我整理回收站/或者从回收站恢复文件是很不友好的。

    希望可以和网页端一样,删除文件夹之后,回收站里面只是一个文件夹。这将会更友好

  16. Disable "People in {Tenant Name} with the link"

    Allow organization admins to disable "People in {Tenant Name} with the link" sharing.

    In order to help maintain inter-departmental access controls it would be helpful to disable this link. This would be similar to the ability to disable "Anyone with the link" that currently exists.

    It is not uncommon for customer to Share Folders and inadvertently exposing content that is controlled through other RBAC methods. These links break those control models and impact OneDrive adoption.

  17. Limit or disable versioning based on file type

    We would like to use OneDrive to allow users to backup their local PST files from their workstation. We don't want users to import these large files into their OST file in Outlook so it is more of an archive solution.

    The issue is that if users connect their PST file to Outlook it starts creating versions. We can block sync of PST files but that is not the desired behaviour.

    It would be nice if we could limit or disable versioning based on file types at an admin level.

  20. Prevent Download - Shared files - eg: .m4a files

    The option to prevent download of shared files only works on a select few file formats. If i upload an m4a file to onedrive and set it so no one can download it, users are still able to download the file.

    Google Drive have got it right - files that cannot be played in the browser cannot be downloaded to the user's device.
