  1. Delete local files and stop syncing after being removed from group

    When a user has marked a library for syncing after they are removed from the group no clean-up occurs and onedrive for business clients throws error.
    Overview:
    • removed from group
    • one drive client threw up error after 5-10 mins saying couldn't sync
    • manually removed sync location via one drive client
    • folder was left on pc
    • files i had opened and that where synced still available
    • had to manually delete folder

    Adding and removing access to groups/sites is a common task and means users are left to manually clean-up everytime they are removed and documents…

  3. 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.

  8. 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

  11. Enable Option to Turn off Onedrive for Business Versioning

    I am currently using OneDrive for Business as a back-up storage which mirrors one of my other cloud storage. The version files takes up space every time we trigger a sync. I would like for the option to turn-off versioning for OneDrive.

  12. Please remove the folder / files path by sharing of files or folders

    Hi, when I wish to share a file a folder, via Link, the other person who open my shared folder can see the whole path of my folders structure. See here the example https://take.ms/FJdda

    Same with Links, all folders direcotry is written in the text of the URL Link, see here: https://take.ms/BlzuX

    Thats a big BUG / Trouble, for everyone who needs to share only some folders or files, without any other information.

  15. 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…

  16. 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

  17. 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.

  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.
