  1. OneDrive Notification when Freezing for Inactivity

    Hi,

    It would be nice to receive a notification when you are about to freeze my OneDrive account for inactivity. Moreover, I was using it. The app is installed on my phone and my laptop. I have files stored, that I some times look at. I suspect you consider me inactive just because I did not change the contents of the folder, but that doesn't mean I am not using it.

    I was reinstalling my OS, and when I tried to login to the OneDrive app, it said I have to go to the website. The website told me that…

  2. Enable Passcode using iOS Files

    Tried accessing OneDrive from iOS Files and it appears a message stating "Files cannot be accessed in this app with passcode enabled" and asked to disable it. I have to cancel the passcode and compromise the security because the iOS files cannot access OneDrive App as well as WhatsApp.

    We need to add the authentication to access OneDrive with passcode enabled.

  3. Exceeding sync item limit

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    同期可能なアイテム数を超えた場合の動作について
    Exceeding sync item limit

    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    同期クライアントで、公開情報に記載の [同期可能なアイテム数] について、該当のアイテム数を超えたら同期ができないようにしてほしい。

    多数のアイテムを同期しているため、[同期中] [変更を処理しています] などのメッセージのまま、同期が中途半端な状態になると、PC 側とクラウド上のどちらのデータが最新かがわからなくなる。
    あいまいなままでは利用の際に困るので、アイテム数が制限事項に抵触した場合、明確に [アイテム数が多いために同期できない] などのエラー メッセージを表示させ、同期できないようにしてほしい。

    Disable syncing in sync client if “number of items that can be synced” limit, which mentioned in Microsoft official, is exceeded.

    While syncing multiple items simultaneously, we get confused either the latest data is on client or on cloud as syncing process is incomplete state with message stating “Syncing” and “Processing changes”.

    For improvement of usability and manageability, disable syncing when sync item limit is exceeded, warn users with error message “sync item limit exceeded”.

    Thank you for…

  4. Easy-to-see added/deleted information at “Office 365 URLs and IP address ranges” page

    "Office 365 の URL と IP アドレスの範囲" に更新があった場合の表示について。
    Easy-to-see added/deleted information at “Office 365 URLs and IP address ranges” page

    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft の公開情報 "Office 365 の URL と IP アドレスの範囲" に追加、更新が合った場合、"最終更新日" は確認できるが、どの項目が削除、追加されたのか分かりにくい。
    追加、削除された内容の詳細を、更新があった際に分かりやすく記載してほしい。

    タイトル : Office 365 の URL と IP アドレスの範囲 | Microsoft Docs
    アドレス : https://docs.microsoft.com/ja-jp/office365/enterprise/urls-and-ip-address-ranges

    At “Office 365 URLs and IP address ranges” page, I can easily see the last update date, but it is difficult to find which information was added or deleted.
    It would be great if the detail of added/deleted information will be more visible at the information page.

  5. 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.

    It can be control only access based on where users try to access from, but it…

  8. Notify admins when a user’s OneDrive for Business storage reached the set storage limit

    ■Description(内容):
    現時点の OneDrive for Business では、OneDrive for Business の使用容量が設定値に達した場合の通知が、OneDrive for Business を所有するユーザーにしか届かないため管理者で把握ができない。
    OneDrive for Business の使用容量が設定値に達した場合は、管理者にも通知されるようにして欲しい。

    When users’ OneDrive for Business storage reaches the set storage limit, the notification will be sent to only users, not their admins. That makes it difficult for admins to manage users’ OneDrive for Business storage.

    For improvement of manageability, please notify admins as well when a user’s OneDrive for Business storage reached the set storage limit.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  11. recover files after freezing account

    Dear team Microsoft,
    i just lost my account and the whole files in it because it's getting freezed first. i am so dissapoint because the files cannot be recover again even after i buy 360 or another product.
    Some files is very important and it is okay if i have to pay "a product" or doing something to recover the files. Doesnt give any chance for your costumer to recover their files is very harmful.

    thanks,

  12. Remote Logout

    If you log in to OneDrive from a PC, you tend to remain signed in, yet the ability to remotely log off a device or session is strangely missing. This makes your files vulnerable to access or deletion.

    Other services, such as Google Drive, have this capability.

    Example: You're at a friend's house and you use their PC to log in to OneDrive and download something, but don't click 'logoff.' Your friend now has access to all of your OneDrive files and can read, change, or delete the files. With remote logoff, you could use your app or PC to…

  14. Set or change default timezone and region for all users

    There should be the ability to set the timezone and region for all users in a tenant at the admin level.

    At the moment the timezone and region at set to US which makes no sense when the Office 365 tenant is set different.
    It results in the dates being displayed in the wrong format in Excel online documents.

    It's unreasonable to assume a user will go and change this setting.

  15. Folder and File share access - restrict via IP Address

    We would like to assign share access to Folders and Files to specific users that are connecting from specific IP addresses. This can already be done as a whole within sharepoint but this prevents access to other areas of the system.

    We have confidential information that we would like staff to view that can be viewed only from the Company's external IP Address.

  17. Turn off virus detection for Office 365

    n my work, I have to analyse lots of file, maybe they contain virus or malicious software,
    but onedrive client just block it and I have to login onedrive.com and download it mannualy.

    I have searched everywhere in the "Office 365 admin center",
    why there is not a option to turn off the virus detection?

    I have also tried the gragh API and can't download it either, just "malicious detected" returned when I request the download url.

  19. The management of devices that is able to sync or even log in

    I sometimes forget to log out the onedrive at other computers. Is there any way to log out it remotely? It will be great if the devices can be managed. User can manage which device can sync and which can not. And even force them to log out.

  20. Regarding the behavior of notifications when a file is downloaded from a shared folder in OneDrive for Business

    Regarding the behavior of notifications when a file is downloaded from a shared folder in OneDrive for Business

    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business において、ファイル単体で共有設定を実施した場合、共有先ユーザーでそのファイルをダウンロードした際には共有元ユーザーにメールで通知される機能がありますが、フォルダーを共有先として指定した場合には、共有先のユーザーがフォルダー内のファイルをダウンロードしても共有元ユーザーに通知される機能がありません。この通知機能を追加してほしい。

    In OneDrive for Business, if an individual file is shared then there exists a function that notifies the owner when a user downloads that file. However, there is no such notification functionality if the sharing is set at the folder level, and the files within the folder are downloaded. I would like to see this feature added in the future.
