  1. 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.

  3. Option to block spontaneous file sharing

    I recently received a shared document from someone who I had never heard of, living on the other side of the world. The only point of them sending the document was to include a cover note, which appeared to be offering to help me find prostitutes or drugs via Craigslist. In effect OneDrive is functioning as a vector for spam. I would like to be able to set a flag to say that only people on an approved list can share files with me.

  5. Offer additional storage for one time price rather than a monthly subscription

    There should be additional amounts of storage, perhaps in increments of 10 GB, for fixed, one time costs. Not everyone wants to pay monthly and for me, now I am no longer using OneDrive (which I love) because I can get 100 GB free from other providers or go pay a "lifetime" cost for 1TB of storage. If one drive offered this, I think there would be a lot more users.

    Folder names when using the backup function of the sync client

    PC にて特殊な設定をしていることもあるため、バックアップ機能時に任意で変更できるよう機能の拡充を希望します。
    When folders have been backed up by the sync client, previously English names are automatically changed into Japanese
    For example, “Documents” is changed to ドキュメント
    Since there are settings that depend on this on the PC, we want to be able to change this behavior when using the backup function.

  8. Personal Vault Should Be Added To Business Subscriptions

    Personal Vault adds a level of security access that assures users of a secondary authentication for the most confidential files. While OneDrive for Business has very good security, there is still a need for a dedicated folder like personal vault. In fact, having the option to convert various folders into personal vault folders would be even better. The visual of a Personal Vault folder is very good and it would be great to have it for more premium subscriptions.

  9. Update the email sent to manager when a user has been deleted to include a link to the Site Collection Owners setting.

    Update the email sent to manager when a user has been deleted to include a link to the Site Collection Owners setting.

    Including a link to the _layouts/15/mngsiteadmin.aspx would allow the manager to assign a different owner for the OneDrive of the deleted user.

    営業担当者による電話連絡やメール連絡など、検討していただきたいです。

    Please add a service that notifies in case of maintenance actions with wide-ranging impact, such as making files on SharePoint Online or OneDrive for Business read-only etc. alongside the message center.
    Currently only the message center notifies of these things, and it is hard to tell what is and is not important from the title.
    I want it to be possible to have notifications come as a call or mail to a point of contact.

    I would like to restrict users not to access OneDrive from outside of the organization including the user’s home. I’m not considering about the situation that users can access the service if they have installed the app. In conclusion, I would like to control where users can access OneDrive that only from the client app and specified location such as the office.

  16. Add audit log when admin get access a user OneDrive

    Admin can get access with no borders other than clicking a link to get access a user OneDrive files.
    It's a big security risk.

    OneNote Online のデータを他のテナントへ移行する際に、現在どのような設定値なのか確認できるような機能の実装を希望します。
    現時点では、各ユーザーの OneDrive for Business に保存されるため、各ユーザーが管理者となるため、各ユーザーごとに確認しなければならなく、複数ユーザーがいる場合に現実的ではないです。
    We hope a feature to check the settings currently being used when migrating OneNote Online data to other tenants will be implemented.
    Currently data is stored in each user's OneDrive for Business and each user is the administrator, and every single user needs to be checked, which makes this very impractical when there are multiple users.
