  1. Add work folders cmdlet Get-WorkFolderStatus

    Add a cmdlet in powershell to let administrators peek into the status of work folders for current user or all users on this computer.

    Today i have to look at file attributes and the exitcode in the registry.

  2. Improve visual feedback during sync

    When a user has almost 300 000 files in its Work Folder it seems that the control panel applet does not update as it should. The general feeling is that the computer is busy with going through the filelist rather than informing the user about what its busy doing. This leads to frustration from the enduser and an incertainty about the current syncstate.

    We are currently using Windows 10 1803 Edu 64-bit on our clients, is this better in newer versions?

  3. Allow Exceptions for Work Folders by File Type

    We redirect "Documents" and other well-known folders to Work Folders. Some applications write files to the Documents or other synched paths and this prevents them being able to synch. For example, many Add-in Express apps write their log files to a subfolder of Documents, and the iTunes library file writes to a subfolder of music. Both of these are examples of files that are constantly open for writing and thus cannot be synched.

    I'd like to be able to exclude some file types from Work Folders synch, and I'd like to be able to exclude some sub-folders based on name.

  4. Enable support to remove work folder content from powershell

    There are no Life cycle management for work folders, would be nice if there were a powershell cmdlet that would remove both metadata and documents for certain users.

  5. Cannot open AIP protected file on WorkFolders App on iOS

    Any MS Office file such as Word, if protected using Azure Information Protection, does not open in WorkFolders iOS App. WorkFolders simply throw error "Cannot open this file. Try opening this file in another app".

    Seems like WorkFolders iOS App does not support Azure Information Protection and hence do not hand over the protected word file to Microsoft Word Application on iOS platform.

    This same feature works fine on Android platform.
    Ideally WorkFolders iOS App should invoke MS Word App and open the .docx files (regardless protected or non-protected).

  6. Thumbnail preview in Explorer for workfolders

    Since Windows 10 1803 there is no image preview in Explorer. However, some people need this feature for their work. I find it particularly annoying that this will not work even if "On Demand File Access" is disabled.

  7. Bring back LastSuccessfulSync

    LastSuccessfulSync was removed from Windows 2016 version of Work Folders. This is used in reports to find clients that have fallen out of sync. Or provide an alternative way to monitor when clients quit syncing.

  8. Work Folders - Make Builtin One Drive Client compatible with Work Folders

    it should be great to replace Work Folders client by builtin one drive client application in windows 10 and make Work folder Server able to respond to OneDrive Clients. As the result :
    - One feature to develop and maintain (one drive client)
    - future features of one drive compatible with Work Folders Server (for example : OneDrive On-Demand)
    - Less resources used on computers

  10. Workfolders edit file directly from app (iOS)

    The current workfolders app 2.0.1 allow us to copy files to and from Workfolders but it's far from all major apps for file storage that allow edit directly from the app.
    It will greatly benefit the users if this option is added.

  12. GPO to change the default path of the Work Folder

    Today, when we configure the Work Folders by GPO we dont have a way to change the default location/path of the work folder.
    It defaults to %USERPROFILE%\Work Folders.
    This is totally a show stopper for me cause we redirect user files to another drive and dont want user files in the system drive. Think this is pretty standard on enterprises. We have a way to redirect almost everything in Windows. But dont have a way redirect Work Folders...

  15. Publish Work Folders Client API

    Work Folders would probably get a lot more traction if you published the client API and allow third party developers and MDM tools to do direct integration.

  18. Work Folders Group Policy

    Work Folders has the scheduled task Task Scheduler Library\Microsoft\Windows\Work Folders\Work Folders Maintenance Work. I need to set this task to run hourly via task scheduler for all users. I was looking for a way to do this via group policy. I know there is a tasks option under GP preferences, but I can not find a way to incorporate this built in task to the GPO. It would be nice to have an admx template or something to be able to push a setting to all computers to run this task on a set schedule instead of just on logon.

  19. Work Folders Hardening

    Currently Work Folders allows us to Encrypt data on the client device. This is a nice feature, the data within the Work Folder on the client device is encrypted. However, at any point in time, a user can Right Click their Work folder and "Remove Enterprise Control" at which point data is unencrypted. Also, at any point in time a user can open the properties of a file and choose to remove encryption. We do not want users to be able to remove encryption, if we chose to encrypt the contents of the work folders it should remain encrypted. This…

  20. Remote Wipe Capabilities in Work Folders

    The Remote Wipe feature is only supported with Intune. If all it does is revoke the key and not actually wipe any data, why do we need to purchase and deploy Intune MDM just to access this feature? Work Folders should include a revoke feature without needing Intune. We need way to revoke access to the data when a user reports their laptop or device is stolen. There are tons of sync utilities around that allow us to securely sync a client with server over WAN, but the reason we like Work Folders is because we do not need to…
