OneDrive Roadmap Roundup- November 2019

This post has been republished via RSS; it originally appeared at: New blog articles in Microsoft Tech Community.


As we wrap up an exciting quarter filled with innovations and announcements, we have some great  features to share with you.

Here is the latest and greatest that landed in production in the month of June 2019.

  • Save for Later
  • Request files
  • Language localization for OneDrive emails

Save for Later
Roadmap ID: 49095


With this feature you will now be able to bookmark files and folders across OneDrive and SharePoint for later access. You will see an aggregate of everything you have saved in the “Saved for later “ section in your OneDrive making it easy for you to quickly get back to content from your OneDrive or a shared library.

Request Files
Roadmap ID: 27020


We are glad to announce roll out of the “Request Files” functionality where you can create special links to request files from others. Anyone with the file request link will be able to upload files without having to sign in, no OneDrive account required. Best of all, uploaders will only be able to upload files. They can't view, edit, or even see who else may have uploaded to the request.

There are multiple use cases where this feature can be extremely valuable – consider "Request for Proposal" (RFP) scenario where you need to collect bids from others, or a marketing professional accumulating quotes from various vendors for a campaign, a teacher collecting assignments , a manager reaching out for feedback from his team members or a financial rep or recruiter gathering documents from their clients- just to name a few.

Language localization for OneDrive emails

Roadmap ID: 55557


We will now localize emails where possible to the preferred language of recipients as defined in their AAD and Exchange settings. In the case of multi-recipient emails the built-in logic will consume content and site languages to localize emails.

As you can see, we continue to evolve OneDrive as a place to access, share, and collaborate on all your files in Office 365, keeping them protected and readily accessible on all your devices, anywhere.


You can stay up-to-date on all things via the OneDrive Blog and take advantage of end-user training resources on our Office support center.


Thank you again for your support of OneDrive. We look forward to your continued feedback on UserVoice and hope to connect with you at Ignite or another upcoming Microsoft or community-led event.


Thanks for your time reading all about OneDrive,

Ankita Kirti – Product Manager – OneDrive | Microsoft
