    I would like to have the feature to resize pictures after they are saved in OneDrive for Business, and it will be nicer if the date is not changed from original one.

  2. Hide/delete the features not working from “Manage User Permissions”

    Hide/delete the features not working from “Manage User Permissions”

    ■Description(内容):
    個人用サイトの作成を禁止する際に "ユーザー権限の管理" から設定を実施するが、"OneDrive を無効にする" "ユーザーのフォローとプロファイルの編集" "タグとメモを使用する" 機能の項目が現在利用できないにも関わらず表示されている。
    突然有効になり、不要な機能が適用される、または機能に制限がかかると困るため、対象の項目が
    動作するようになるまでは、表示されないようにして欲しい。

    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…

  3. Have an alternative means to contact the Onedrive support team other than the 'email'.

    Currently there seems to be only one way to get in touch with the Onedrive support team. I can log in to onedrive.com to write down what the problem is in the feedback form, but it does not get sent for some reason.

    Shouldn't there be an alternative mode of getting support in case the probem users experience also affects their ability to get support by sending 'feedback' via their account?

  5. Enhance Restore-SPODeletedSite command

    We have encountered problems with users that left the company then returned after a few months. In a hybrid scenario, with AD on-premise and rest of the O365 in cloud, users returning are provisioned new empty OneDrives. When we attempt to restore their old drives, we cannot do that because the SiteID is already in use. It would be nice to add few flags for the Restore-SPODeletedSite command to enable the override of a current existing SiteID or at least to be able to restore a deleted drive under a different SiteID

    ***************

    同じ同期状態に複数のアイコンがあることで混乱を招く可能性があり、修正してほしい。

    At One Drive File on Demand, currently there are two types of the icon with check mark to indicate the status of files as they are available on the local.

    Both icons tell us that the file is sync and this means there are two kinds of icons for the one status.

    Those icons might make users are confused, so please display the one icon for one status.

    Thank you for your…

  10. OneDrive Personal - Encryption at rest

    Virtually all other cloud storage providers offer encryption at rest and OneDrive for Business does too. There seems no reason why OneDrive Personal users shouldn't also be afforded the exact same level of security, especially those of us paying a subscription for the service. Perhaps it could be made an additional benefit of an Office 365 subscription if the desire is not there to offer it to free users. However, with Microsoft's resources and apparent desire to champion security of user data, encryption at rest for OneDrive Personal feels a bizarre missing piece to the puzzle.

  13. 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.

    I would like to see the feature to export [Statistics for Files] of OneDrive for Business for each user.
    Exporting Office 365 audit logs by admins is working as a workaround, but it would be great if exporting [Statistics for Files] of each user is available as well.

  15. Maybe have a two-step verification established on every logon/install?

    Every time you logon to a computer (Home/Work) have an established two-step verification to your mobile phone or email. This way no one else will have access to your personal files.

  17. Refine policy control for file exclusions via MDM / GPO / Portal

    Please consider adding an option to control file-type exclusions at a level where we can apply different policies to different groups , device types.

    I'll explain , currently our tenant is shared for a large enterprise with a few subsidiaries running off the tenant , we were planning to utilize OneDrive redirection of known folders (Documents / Desktop) , however due to reported problems with PST's and large files , we hoped to exclude OST & PST files from Onedrive.

    However exclude settings appear to be tenant wide , it would be preferred to set this policy for a selected…

  18. Protect against accidental deletions with a "permanent" file attribute.

    Create a file attribute called "permanent" so that a OneDrive file/folder can only be deleted online with a browser, not from a OneDrive client device.

    Since you can only have a maximum of three files without a premium plan in the Personal Vault, I can't do anything with the vault. Please increase the number of possible files.
