        • Add a report of users that do not have a OD4B site provisioned but have a license

          Would be nice if we could generate a report of all users that have a license for a OneDrive site but have not had a site provisioned. This list could be used with a PowerShell script to provision the sites and then create a script that automatically provisions one when a user is added to Azure AD.

          • 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.

            Each report has a date for when this report was generated. The reports usually reflect a 24 to 48 hour latency from time of activity. Note: At times there may be…

                  • 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. I am unsure if we're chasing your capabilities,…

                          SharePoint サイトの中にはアクセス頻度が低いサイトもあるため、すべてのサイトをフォローして OneDrive アプリの "サイト" に表示させるのは手間がかかる。
                          また、チーム サイトはテナント内の全ユーザーがアクセスできるサイトでありながら手動でフォローが必要なため、OneDrive アプリの "サイト” 機能をフォローをして表示させる機能ではなく、サインインしているユーザーにアクセス権限のあるサイトの一覧を表示させる機能にして欲しい。

                          Currently, users need to follow each site to display it on the “Sites” feature at OneDrive apps, even though user’s frequency of access is very low for some of those sites.
                          Also, in spite of all users allowed to access Team Site, users need to follow it manually.

                          Those behavior are time-consuming for users, so that we would like you to enable users seeing…

                                • Allow Folder exclusion in SharePoint MIgration tool

                                  I am using Microsoft SharePoint migration tool for migrating contents from FIle Server to each user OneDrive. Tool seems to working perfect.

                                  During the migration I realized there should be option to exclude the specific folder. For example In my case most of the users has "BackUp" which we do not want to migrate to OneDrive.

                                  Is this new feature possible in next version of SharePoint Migration tool?

                                  Avian

                                  • Add owner UPN column to OneDrive for Business usage report

                                    Currently only the owner display name and url of the user's OneDrive site is available in the OneDrive usage report. I use this report to then tie the information in to data that we have only in our internal reporting systems to gain insight into how OneDrive is being used, where it is being underused, and how users are sharing files. There is a script that can get the UPN from the url of the OneDrive site but there are hundreds of sites where the url's listed in the report end in .com1 and there are no emails in our…

                                    • Multiple PC's using same One Drive

                                      When one drive is mapped to multiple PC's (this is the need of using cloud drive) when there are changes made on one PC and when accessing from another PC, One drive is unable to sync the changes and says there is a file or folder by the same name and stops sync - The error message says rename the folder - instead this can be automated with renaming the folder with PC name and the user can choose which to retain. Today the basic use of one drive is not usable due to the conflict error message which then…

                                        • 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…
