Yes please!!! For teachers not using Teams yet, this would be a godsend for students sending (sharing) files with the teacher to turn in.
Yes a duplicate as listed several times in other ideas sections. But yes, should apply to Windows and Mac (next gen sync client), Windows Mobile, iOS, and Android apps.
We’re interested in improving the experience for users of camera upload to OneDrive. Looking at better ways to organize and structure the files is an important aspect. No other updates right now.
Like this idea. Multiple devices all duping photos into the same folder can be a pain in the rear sometimes. Would be great to be able to designate a sub-folder per device if desired.
This can now be done with the current OneDrive sync client. You can sync multiple ODfB accounts and a single OneDrive (personal) account on the same computer.
Though this specific request could be closed, I would like to see Microsoft enable the functionality to sync more than one PERSONAL OneDrive accounts to the same computer. I have a "personal" OneDrive personal/consumer account and also a "business" OneDrive personal/consumer account.
(And if someone is wondering, I also do have a "business" OneDrive for Business account but still have to use my business OD personal account. One reason is I had it before ODfB was available. Also, certain functionality (such as Windows 10 Mobile will not automatically sync photos to ODfB) still doesn't work with ODfB .
I truly do understand the security concerns as knowing we have control of how our data is shared is critical. But, please let your customers decide for themselves whether this should be allowed per site (and even per user or by group). Please don't make the decision for us. There are many cases where anonymous folder guest links would not be desired for a site but there are just as valid use cases where it truly is desired, whether it be a read-only, full read-write, or even write only ("drop box" functionality).
Yes, the read-write, or drop-only permissions would need further scrutiny before turning on (and again, could be per-site or per-user or group), but let us decide what, who, and for whom to enable the functionality for. Even if not giving customers write functionality, please at least reconsider the read-only option.
I posted the same comment as above to an earlier idea titled "Create "Get a link" for a folder" (91 votes, link below) and linked back to this idea for people to vote on (as the original is marked as "Not Right Now" and can no longer be voted on).
Al I can say is yes, yes, YES, YES!!!!! Not being able to share without login a folder (sure, it can be an admin setting that is off by default if it is a security issue but that O365 admins can turn on) is a huge missing bit of functionality vs the OneDrive consumer service. I'm in a school environment and needing to share some folders out with various internal (students and teachers) and external (parents, outside 3rd party teacher without O365 account) users in one easy share. I can do it with the consumer service (that's actually what I am using for a couple of classes) It seems a shame when we have O365 and can't use it as easily or do things that are available on the consumer side.
Wanted to provide an update here: this is something we’re planning on doing, but don’t have a timeframe to share yet
We’re looking at two related pieces of this:
1) For OneDrive for Business, enable shared folders to be added to the root of the OneDrive folder at all (like in OneDrive Personal).
2) For OneDrive across business and personal, enable shared folders to be placed into subfolders.
We appreciate your patience; this is significant engineering work given the architecture of the products and our diverse customer base, spanning individuals to small businesses to multi-national enterprises to government agencies. We aim to address this while maintaining our industry-leading security, privacy, and compliance commitments.
Thank you for the continued feedback.
