  1. download

    Enhance the "Block syncing of specific file types" to stop the ODFB Sync client from downloading blocked file types FROM the tenant to the client PC.

    Example:

    I have blocked MP4 files via the "Block syncing of specific file types" at https://admin.onedrive.com.

    I put an MP4 file into the root of my OneDrive for Business folder on my local PC to send it to my O365 tenant.

    The Sync client correctly blocks this and makes me remove the MP4 file from my local PC.

    -----------------------

    Open https://tenant-my.sharepoint.com and upload the MP4 file via the browser to the site.

    • stop annoying "follow up" calls

      got a call today from a microsoft rep asking me if my onedrive syncing problem had been resolved. So I checked. No, I said, looks like it's still having the problem. Does he address the problem? NO!!!! "We're not trained in onedrive," he says, "you have to go back to email support." WHAT!!!??? Why does microsoft have someone call to check on me who's not trained in the thing they're checking on?? Oh, yeah. microsoft is evil.

          • 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.

                To prohibit users from creating the personal sites, as we navigate to SharePoint admin Center> user profile > Manage User Permission, the following three options are still displayed even though those features are no longer available.
                - Disable OneDrive
                - Follow People and Edit Profile
                - Use Tag and Notes

                For improvement of manageability, we hope you to hide those options until these features are functioned so that admins can know what features are…

                • travel advisory

                  I get shut out of my account two-three times a week when I travel. It's maddening at best and debilating at worst. What if you allowed users to preregister their travel plans to avoid new ip locations looking suspicious.

                  • Please be sure to delete the "Documents" and "Attachments" folders.

                    The 'Documents' folder and the 'Attachments' folder are created automatically. These folders are the default paths that can not be created or deleted.
                    However, I do not use these folders.

                    Please be sure to delete the "Documents" and "Attachments" folders.

                    • Activity Log

                      OneDrive should have an activity log to track file changes (e.g. new file, renaming/deleting of files). Dropbox has implemented years ago.

                      • "Wants to Access" notification needs more details

                        The request for access notification (email when a user request access to a OneDrive or SharePoint) needs to provide more information. Especially the actual file/folder.

                        Details: Had an external user that requested access to a users OneDrive Folder. More than likely in error as they were previously sent a link to an actual file. The request only show the tenantname-my-sharepoint.com No further information was mentioned. After researching the audit logs, I was able to determine the user was sent the link and what OneDrive(OD4B) the user was attempting to access. Would be nice if the email would display the full…

                              • Lag on ODFB usage reports

                                The ODFB reports on Admin portal usually have a lag of 2 days, can you do something about it so that an organization can pull real time data? Atleast for a targeted set of users, so that one can identify how many files for a user have synced. A lag of 2 hours is okay but 2 days is really too much.

                                    Let us sync folders on any drive.

                                    For example
                                    c:\documents
                                    d:\recepies

                                    d:\pictures

                                    • Failure to support ReFS in personal OneDrive -- as it is in OD4B - ruins admin experience

                                      Ideally, we could harmoniously deploy the features that separately convinced us to buy in to the Microsoft vision (M365, O365, EMS, Windows 10 Professional for Workstations and Windows 10 Enterprise). OD4B and OD worked harmoniously on NTFS volumes, OD4B works beautifully on ReFS -- but despite running on the identical sync client OD fails to support ReFS at all. OD fails to support "protect important files" on corporate devices, but recently it's announced (and we implemented) directing all those system Known Folders that populate "This PC" to reside in OD4B on ReFS.

                                      • There is no option to see sync problems when red x is showing on folders or to resolve them
