If you implement that feature, consider the following: In normal OneDrive, the function is already available, but: You cannot download a file, which is in a password protected share, if the downloading person is not logged in with a MS account. There are two issues:
- There is no error message. The button is just not working. So I created a support ticket and many others might do that as well.
- If I know, that the person has no MS account, I cannot set a password at all, which is a security problem for me. So anyone with the link can view and download the file.
Please not only for OneDrive business. The normal OneDrive only syncs 10GB. Every longer smartphone video is bigger and cannot be synced.

Thanks for the feedback! We’re starting to look at this one. No plans to share yet.
There are several proposals like this, since years. But nothing happens. Is even someone of Microsoft reading this?
