Hi all,

I have around 10 users in 1 office who don't have the option "BLOCK DOWNLOAD" on their ODB apps.

They only see this option for Office files (Word, Excel, etc...) for non-office files such as PDF's, option is not showing.

Is that by default MS design or am I missing something?

If it is by default MS design, can you recommend some articles that would confirm this statement?

 

Kind regards,

Dino

Hi Vasil,
thanks for the info.
Any evidence/article that would support this claim?

I don't have an article handy but can confirm that we currently only support Block Download for Office files.

 

That being said, we are working on Block Download for other file types (as announced in the Sharing talk at Ignite last year) and you should keep an eye on Message Center for more news on that soon :)

 

Thanks!
