Let Business users of Office 365 choose which version of OneDrive they want to use.
OneDrive Personal and OneDrive Business are really to very different products. For many business users the Personal version is right for them, for others the Business version is the correct choice. Why not let Business administrators choose which version is correct for each of their users, and assign the correct product for users needs? It is clear to me that the Business and Personal versions will never be equal, and they probably should not be. I have used (and am using) both products. Thanks
Thanks for the suggestion – these are both available to users now.
Hi Casey, the NGSC (Next Gen Sync Client) is definitely much improved, kudos there. However I've had a number of my customers request the ability to Disable on version of OneDrive or the other, either via GPO or within the client itself. A number of corporate customers don't want to see the personal OneDrive even be an option for saving documents within the Office suite. And then I also have a few school districts that want to only use OneDrive personal and remove the option to save to OD4B again within the Office suite. I'm going to make a similar request in Uservoice for Office.
Casey, you are missing the point. What people are asking is to have the ability within O365 to say "I want to use OneDrive" or "I want to use OD4B (aka SharePoint)" This is a configuration option. Having the ability to choose OneDrive or OD4B in and Android app is interesting, but pointless to this request. You are going to find that 99% of your customers are going to choose regular OneDrive.

Casey, is that a disingenuous answer or an honest attempt to improve OD4B. My school students all have OD4B. They don't have OneDrive (for consumer). What value does 'supporting both on Android' offer them.
What we really want is the corporate integration of OneDrive-4-Biz with the features of OneDrive (copy/move/save-to-one-drive/text-editing/upload photos to OneDrive/....)

I want to add another vote of support for this, or product integration. The business version of OneDrive is horrible. I do not understand how a paid for product (not a cheap price either) can be substantially WORSE than its free counterpart.
