Merge Work Folders, OneDrive, and OneDrive for Business
I feel like the whole offering with OneDrive is really fragmented and needs to be simplified. There are a lot of good features spread across different products that should really be bought together a lot better. I wish there was just one app that users could install on clients for both business and personal, with some way to switch accounts.
Anyway I have some customers that I am trying to move away from Google Apps and Dropbox to Office 365. One feature customers are really keen for, and would really help to convince them to move, is a way that they can access their network shares/mapped drives while they are out of the office. It would be great if the OneDrive client on their devices just picked up work folders that are typically mapped drives. I just want an easy way to automatically have these folders appear for users/groups in a team, much like how I would deploy a mapped drive. It also means they have an easy way to make sure their work documents are being backed up.
Right now the OneDrive for Business just looks to complicated and doesn't seem as developed as OneDrive (personal) - I'm not looking for a SharePoint site. I don't know what your numbers are on how many people take up OneDrive for Business after purchasing an Office 365 business subscription but I bet it isn't as high as OneDrive with personal subscriptions.
Please reach out if you want me to clarify any of this.
