  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…

    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive for Business にて [エクスプローラーで表示] 機能を利用した際に、エクスプローラー上で Excel ファイルを新規作成すると、作成したファイルが一定期間、自分の名前でロックされてしまう制限について修正を要望します。
    上記事象はローカル上で作成したファイルをエクスプローラー上にドラッグ アンド ドロップすることで回避できますが、Excel ファイル以外では発生しないために混乱が生じます。
    同期クライアントでも本事象が発生しないため、同期ができない環境においても同様の手順で利用ができるよう機能の早期修正を要望します。

    When we work with files with [View in File Explorer] at OneDrive for Business, we are facing the restriction that when new Excel file is created on the explorer, the file is locked with the author name for a certain period.

    We can avoid this restriction with creating the file on the computer and drag and drop it on the explorer. However, we don’t see…

  9. Creating a Static Link which does not include Personal Information when sharing files.

    OneDrive "get link" URL contains personally-identifiable information. The URL that OneDrive gives you, when you share a folder, or file, contains both the organization name, as well as your personal email address.
    "https://<your organization>-my.sharepoint.com/personal/<your email address>/_layouts/15/guestaccess.aspx?folderid=1fc523d2004e243e5b01f8444a25aa921&authkey=ATiR2GckBFQK9-Tl8u4Q6bM"

    Linking multiple accounts


    ■Description(内容):
    OneDrive のモバイル アプリに複数のアカウントでサインインをすると、アカウント同士が紐づく。PC など別の端末でも同じアカウントでサインインをすると紐づいたアカウントまで表示されるが、これを解消するためには一旦すべての端末からすべてのアカウントをサインアウトする必要があり、非常に手間なので、紐づきを解除する機能を用意して欲しい。
    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.

  13. Change external sharing setting, which is more permissive for some users than default

    Some users needs more permissive sharing settings for sharing files (e.g. "Anyone"). The default set in the Admin Center should be less permissive (e. g. "New and existing guests").
    Problem: If you set the external sharing setting "Anyone" in Admin Center, each new user's sharing settings has to be changed to "New and existing guests".

    Please provide an option, to assign a more permissive sharing setting for some users than the default in Admin Center.

    Add an option for whether or not to change OneDrive for Business URLs after changing UPN


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、UPN を変更すると、自動的に OneDrive for Business の URL も変更され、今までに発行した共有リンクで、他のユーザーがアイテムにアクセスできなくなります。
    また、Teams 上のチャットで共有したファイルも URL 変更に伴いアクセスできなくなるため、共有したいアイテムはアップロードのし直しが必要となります。
    上記により業務上の工数が増えること、またユーザーの混乱を招きかねないことから、UPN 変更後に OneDrive for Business の URL を変更しない選択を可能にする機能を希望します。

    Currently if the UPN is changed, OneDrive for Business URLs are automatically changed, and users lose the ability to access items via already-issued links.
    Also, the URLs of files shared in Teams chats are changed, and so access to these is also lost, requiring the reupload of items you want to share. …

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. Increase F1/F3 ODFB Storage Limit from 2GB to 100GB or more

    Increase F1/F3 ODFB Storage Limit from 2GB to 100GB or more. 2GB is not enough storage for field users and trying to engineer solutions around this limit is time-consuming and inefficient.

    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 your…

  20. Getting list of all site collection admins for OneDrive

    Currently, there no way to fetch a list of all site collection admins of all OneDrive account. The only way to check it is by going to Admin Portal and checking it for each and every user.

    PowerShell (Set-SPOUser) allows to add new site collection admins to SharePoint sites and OneDrive. However, Get-SPOUser doesn't get the site collection admins unless the admin account is already site collection admin on the OneDrive.

    It would be great to have some way for admins to fetch a list of all site collection admins either using script or GUI.

    Thank you.
