  1. 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.

    If you change a UPN, the URL of the OneDrive for Business personal site changes, and so you need to re-make sharing links, which takes work.

  5. 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.

  13. Storage

    On our subscription, we have 6TB - 1TB for 6 people each. We are only using 2, but there is no way to combine storage so it would be 2TB on one account, and the rest are 1TB each, now only 5 accounts.

    When signing in to OneDrive mobile app using multiple accounts, those accounts will get linked to each other. If the same accounts are used to sign in into other devices like PC, accounts that were linked will be displayed, but if this is to be resolved all accounts will need to sign out from every device. This takes up lots of time, so we hope that a feature to remove the links will be provided.

  20. 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…
