  1. Sync Document Libraries from On Premise SharePoint to macOS

    Was hoping the new client for Mac would support this feature, since you stated the Windows and Mac versions of OneDrive for Business would follow eachother feature wise. In regards to clicking the "Sync" button on a On Premise SharePoint site, this still isn't the case.

    This feature works on Windows.

    PLEASE fix this. We are utilizing 3 party services like dropbox, box and services a like, just to be able to share files and documents between Mac and Windows users.

  4. Enhance providing the update information about the details of the event caused or the influence for the users.

    I would like to get know the update information about the details of the event caused or the influence for the users. Before, the screen could display only 100 items apparently, it was not even appearing to scroll down the screen. (when 100 more files were saved to OneDrive for Business) Currently, the event has improved therefore it is no problem to see all the files in the browser, however, I believe it was a temporary event that affected causing by some updates. I am assuming the Update was running on Office 365 server side at the time.

  14. consider my comment on the modern sharing screen within One Drive for Business.

    I have been performing the sharing by inputting an user name at the time of[sharing]along with a right-click of an item. On a new sharing screen, I have a difficulty in understanding how the screen is proceeding due to the default behavior leading to the sharing along with the method set within a SharePoint admin center's[default link type].
    I am afraid that there will be a possibility I would experience the sharing behavior that I don't even intend to, and therefore I hope the new sharing method to be switched back to a classic one.
