  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.

      • Allow sign in for multiple OneDrive personal accounts

        It's great that I can sign in to a personal OneDrive accounts and multiple Business OneDrive accounts simultaneously. I would love to be able to sign in to multiple personal accounts at once.

            • 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.

                • Enabling expiry limit for external file sharing

                  Need to have the feature of setting expiry dates for business critical data shared with external users . It is extremely disappointing that the link expiry feature is available only for ondedrive personnel users and and links shared with anonymous users. It should be otherway round

                        • View/Report on files with multiple versions

                          It's important for us to know if there are multiple versions of files so that we can manage them correctly. Currently you have to inspect each file to see if there are additional versions kept. To be able to filter on these on have a column displaying this information would be a good start

                            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…

                              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.

                                • Transfer data from personal onedrive to business

                                  I need to transfer my data from my personal onedrive account to my new O365 for business account. I have 83Gb of data and another user to go. The only way I can find to do this is download the data from personal to hardrive and then upload to business. This is time consuming and waste of data allowance and killing my bandwith. Why is there not a back-of-house method to do this?

                                  • 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.

                                      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…
