  1. Report on what version of OneDrive users are connecting with

    A report that lists the user's UPN as well as the version of the sync client they are connected with would be extremely useful. With this report we could easily identify users that are still using the old sync client so we can target them for upgrading to the newest client.

  2. Allow _vti_ in folder and file names

    One drive is used to store all sorts of file, not just productivity documents. If you want to store an eclipse work space or a website, in OFB you can't because of this restriction. This makes competing products look more attractive. Why are these blocked and can that restriction be removed?

  3. 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.

    Wait…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. Please add rules/control to select folders/files that should be local stored only.

    OneDrive doesn't have a very simple and basic function. It doesn't allow users to select subfolders and files to not be synchronized, to avoid uploading to the cloud.
    Example:
    If we have a project folder on OneDrive with 10 subfolders I should be able to select which of those folders would be uploaded, but for now, we cannot. All of the subfolders and files will be synchronized to the cloud. If we check the option to not synchronize one of the subfolders, OneDrive will let the files only on OneDrive and not on the local machine, the opposite of what…

  11. 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.

  13. 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

  17. 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

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. 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?
