Published Dec 09 2019 09:00 AM 49.5K Views

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 November 2019.


  • Request files
  • Language localization for OneDrive emails

Edit : For any updates on Save for Later, please follow feature ID : 49095


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. 


Request files from your peers within and outside your organization.Request files from your peers within and outside your organization.


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.
