  • “Request Files” sems to only work on personal user account OneDrive folders. If the folder is in a OneDrive that is in a shared Group, then I do not see the “Request Files” option. Or at least if it is available for shared Groups, it is not turned on for my organization. Bummer.

  • Hello, I work for a construction company and we share parent folder to the subcontractors but the there are few sub-folders in the parent folder that should not be shared. Was able to manage it in Direct Access but while sharing the link the sub-contractors are able to find all the files in the parent folder. How to avoid a sub-folder from sharing via Link sharing?

  • Your instructions state to select any folder, however, we are experiencing a roadblock. The option to request files is not available on a file that has been shared with us. Do you know a way around that or can files only be requested from a folder created by you?
