  1. Azure report from OneDrive

    We have company secrets in drawing files. I need a report from Azure to show all users with a certain file extension in their OneDrive. I would like the filename, file extension, date added to OneDrive. Also a option to email this report from the console.

  2. Add a personnel vault integrated password manager

    Everybody uses 3rd party password managers and now with personnel vault, one-drive it self can add a password manager making us dependent on one less 3rd party app.

  3. (DCR) modify the behavior of how the data is stored after a user selects “stop backup” on an ad\hoc basis

    Issue:
    • When you stop the backup of any of your known folders, the files stay in the OneDrive folder instead of being moved to the original folder location.
    • The message you get is not very clear for a non-technical user, which will make them think they are losing their files by stopping the backup.

    We would like to either make OneDrive to move the files back to the original location. [ definitely would like to push for this option.

    Or if it’s not possible due to design / change complexity… To provide a more user friendly message, indicating…

  4. Encrypt on local hard drive

    As a organization we’d like the ability to have the whole local OneDrive for Business folder encrypted, so that even if another administrator logs on, they wouldn’t be able to access the data. We can enable bitlocker for the hard drive but we cannot prevent the scenario with local admins, as they can just take ownership of the user profile folder.

  5. A businessplan for one user and at least 5 TB of storage

    Small datadriven businesses still often need more than 1 TB of storage, but it is not viable to pay for 5 userlicenses.

  6. Allow Manager Access on Disable instead of Delete of AAD Account

    We would like the option to grant the manager access to a OneDrive when a user account is disabled (Sign-In Blocked) rather than deleted. We leave accounts disabled for 30 days so we need to manually grant access to managers.

  8. Allow increasing a site's quota when at capacity..

    With the current product limits, administrators are unable to manage a user's my-site quota after they have already hit quota. The solution involves contacting the end user and asking them to clear out enough content to get the site back under quota or creating a ticket to support to process the request by way of an escalation to PG. If administrators were able to bump up a user's quota while it was currently at quota we could avoid the extra steps of having to ask an end user to delete content or creating a support request, when the need to…

  11. Prevent users from synchronizing a library from top level

    Some libraries have so many files that you should be able to forbid synchronization at the top level.

    Users should at least select the first folder to synchronize.

  12. 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…

  18. personal vault

    Personal vault should be available through Office 365 for business subscription.
    I have all of the Office 365 services provided through my Office 365 for Business subscription. The personal vault feature seems attractive but it would be a waste of money to subscribe to Office 365 Home or Office 365 Personal when virtually all of those services are included in the Office 365 for Business subscription – basically I would be paying twice for 98% of the services.
