Microsoft’s OneDrive will quickly get one other helpful coverage for Workplace 365 admins.
The coverage would enable admins to dam the importing of recent recordsdata which have particular extensions or filenames, in response to the Office 365 roadmap.
The entry there notes:
“This setting allows you to enter key phrases to stop the OneDrive sync app (OneDrive.exe) from importing sure recordsdata to OneDrive or SharePoint. You may enter full names, comparable to “setup.exe” or use the asterisk as a wildcard character to characterize a collection of characters, comparable to *.pst. Key phrases aren’t case delicate.”
The function might enhance community efficiency and storage utilization by blocking the importing of non permanent log recordsdata, movies or different non-essential objects, or assist with data governance.
When recordsdata are skipped, that is indicated to the consumer with the “Don’t enter” image, and Sync Heart can have an entry explaining why the file was not uploaded.
The function, which is likely one of the most requested on UserVoice, is anticipated to roll out in December and is already accessible to Workplace Insiders utilizing OneDrive (model 20.201).
