This month, we’ll be rolling out Block Download for Anyone and Organization sharing links as well as updating the MyAnalytics feature on OneDrive mobile. We’re also announcing that Camera Upload for OneDrive on Android is coming out of beta for all users!


As always, feel free to leave your feedback, comments or questions below.

Block Download for Anyone & Organization Links

Rolling out in late November

We are rolling out the Block Download feature for sharing links. With this feature, users will now be able to share a link to Office documents that can block recipients from the file, making copies of the file, copying text into other applications or printing. Even with these settings enabled, the user is still able to view the document in Office Online. Users can create links that block download by using the common sharing experience that exists across Office 365. By going into Link Settings they’ll be able to toggle the “block download” option for view-only links. This feature will begin rolling out in late November.

Updates to MyAnalytics on OneDrive for iOS & Android

Rolling out in late November

We are updating the MyAnalytics feature in the OneDrive for iOS & Android apps.

This feature now adds new entry points to the view count and context menus for individual files to make it easier to see everything that’s happening around your files. We are improving the service itself so that view counts are more accurate and will match the analytics that are available on OneDrive web. We are also removing the “File trending” signal in this release. You should start seeing these changes in your app in late November.
