  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  9. Block level sync for Work Folder files

    Currently work folder sync on file level.
    If you open a file and make one change the hole file will be synced over to the server.
    It would benefit lan/wan if work folders could perform only block level sync so only the changes in the files get copied over to server and other devices.

  10. 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.

  14. 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…

  17. Add selective sync in Work Folders [Separated Idea]

    Today, Work Folders client will sync the entire dataset on the client. Some devices don't have too much storage space. A selective sync feature for Windows platform (equal to the one on iOS) would be great, which only downloads the namespaces, and download data when user selects it.

  20. Ability to view/access Work Folders files on the server through web browser [Separated Idea]

    Possibility to view / download "Read only" files from web browser on any computer without establishing a Work Folders partnership that downloads the files to the computer. This would also be great for non-domain joined Windows 7 computers.
