  1. Litigation Hold on Account - Don't need a license to keep OneDrive Info

    Currently, if someone in our company gets put on a Litigation hold, and they want us to keep their OneDrive for Business files, we would like to not have it eat up a license to keep the files. This is similar to how Mail acts the same way.

  2. Add local network/LAN sync so that my OneDrive Syncing PCs on my local network don't need to round trip to the cloud to share updates

    Allow OneDrive to be aware of other machines on the local network and sync changes directly between them to save the round trip to the cloud for every change

  3. Pricing range, cheaper and more variety

    Adding variety of pricing for One Drive. For now the OneDrive pricing is way too high for Indonesian market. Google taking away the market with cheaper option, let's say, 50gb on OneDrive is 31k IDR, where 100gb google drive is 25k IDR per month, with only 249k per year. the office bundling is just not everyone use, even I know it's way powerful then Google offer, but the Android and iOS version is way behind the desktop version, and way less capable than the Google Docs.

  6. OneDrive mobile client support for Azure Information Protection (AIP) protected documents

    Currently when you attempt to view an AIP protected document in the iOS mobile client (presuming its the same for Android clients), the document fails to show and OneDrive shows a message stating:

    "The file can't be displayed. Make sure that you're connected to a WiFi or mobile network".

    The user then has to have the Word (or other Office app) client installed on their mobile device and then click on the Word icon to access the document.

    My suggestion/request is that the mobile client should be AIP label and policy aware and able to open the document preview, just…

  7. Enable Option to Turn off Onedrive for Business Versioning

    I am currently using OneDrive for Business as a back-up storage which mirrors one of my other cloud storage. The version files takes up space every time we trigger a sync. I would like for the option to turn-off versioning for OneDrive.

  8. Add an "Employee Terminated" Field to AD and Microsoft O365 Accounts

    This request would have a big impact on both Exchange administration and OneDrive administration. Historically there has not been an avenue within AD to mark an account as terminated, other than maybe changing the account description field or utilizing the Exchange Custom Attributes. So you have an employee that leaves, maybe make the description change, and disable the account. You might grant the manager access to the former employee's mailbox for a period of time, and eventually delete the user account. In prior versions of SharePoint, a disabled account might trigger the Mysite deletion process which in O365 has become…

  10. Centrally manage / easier Sharepoint syncing

    I find that trying to train users on syncing Sharepoint has been EXTREMELY challenging, more so than creating apps, configuring Sharepoint or even landing men on the moon for some reason... It would be handy to have a console where I can say right that bunch of users, matter what Device they are on (as long as it is Windows 10), they get these libraries synced. I have generally always got 1 site that everyone accesses (or the vast majority) and it would be good to just tick a box and whenever a new laptop is added, as soon as…

  14. Eliminate filename and folder name exclusions

    At the moment, some characters and file/folder names will not sync, even though the names are valid on the device. For instance, a folder named "Forms" in the root of the sync directory will not sync to the cloud. This is an unnecessary restriction.

  15. Secure One Drive (web, android, iOS, PC and Mac) using two step authentication

    Secure One Drive (web, android, iOS, PC and Mac) using two step verification just like in "Personal Vault". This would definitely secure our One Drive in an event when one of our devices would be stolen. I have signed in to One Drive web recently and typed all the password and it automatically connects me with my One Drive without verifying who entered the password. What if something happens to one or more of my devices, how can I retrieve and possibly secure all my files in my Account. Identity theft is still the number one issue today.

  16. Move Application Folders to dedicated subfolder

    There is no dedicated folder where applications can store their files.
    Some use the top folder, other the 'Documents' folder
    but the top folder should be relatively clean and user oriented
    whilst documents should be mainly maintainted with user content

    hence the suggestion to provide an dedicated folder for such items.
    Some thing like Applications Files,
    it could be placed under the top folder or the Documents folder

  17. Silent KFM not working when there is a "problem", but wont tell the user or the admin.

    We've been testing out OneDrive KFM, and its not working when there is a problem with one of the know folders, it could be a Symlink or "illegal" file type, .pst etc.
    It would be nice to have a dashboard that wrote these errors from the deployment, so we could take action on it, instead of not knowing why it isn't deploying.
