We agree 100% with the suggestion and are exploring ways to enable this. This represents a significant amount of engineering work hence we don’t have a schedule to share yet.
We’re working on the ability to share a file or folder with a specific Microsoft Account.eludolf commented
Link Expiration and Link Password are great additions, but are no substitute for named account permissions. We need to be able to ensure that only specific people have access to certain files or folders, so we need account permissions in addition to link sharing. We also need to be able to either navigate the Shared folders and files and check permissions or list users with access to these folders and files.
I am not sure why this feature was removed from OneDrive. There are several ways you can add this again and still keep the sharing process simple for users that do not want to bother with advanced sharing, or require people to have a Microsoft Account. You can even put an option in Settings to allow users to enable or disable this Secure/Advanced sharing feature for their OneDrive account.
This is a must and severely limits the usability of OneDrive sharing for a lot of security concerned customers. Especially OneDrive Premium paying customers who wish to make OneDrive their single or primary cloud storage service. I know a lot of Microsoft customers turn to other cloud storage services for secure sharing, but wish they cloud use OneDrive for that as they already pay for Office.
Please give more attention to this matter. We would love to have a more similar and consistent experience across the consumer and business products and have the same sharing features we have on OneDrive for Business . Or, at least the ones that can be implemented without the required supporting infrastructure.
We will be adding the ability for administrators to expire external users’ access to entire site collections after a mandatory expiration period, as we discussed at Ignite 2018. That feature will be rolling out in CY19Q3.
