OneDrive for Business - Implement shared folder syncing to desktop client
We need the ability to sync folders that have been shared by another Onedrive for Business user with the desktop client. You just rolled this out for personal OneDrive, but it seems like it's more important for Onedrive for Business.
We’ve recently rolled out support for syncing your shared OneDrive for Business folders and Team sites (including O365 Groups). You can read more here: https://blogs.office.com/2017/01/24/onedrive-brings-new-file-collaboration-and-management-features-to-the-enterprise/ Thanks!

Couldn't agree more - crazy difficult to locate files that are shared if you have to keep going back to the web app - plus what about when operating offline- shared docs are not accessible.
MS please get this fixed ASAP.
Please add this asap. This is the most basic feature that any cloud storage software should have. How can i ask users to use OneDrive when they cannot share folders with others!?

Onedrive for business totally useless without this feature... that's why we would rather to use Dropbox than *useless* Onedrive for business
Add and sync shared folders to your OneDrive" functionality doesn't work in OneDrive for business. how can it be? i a cant work with files on my Mac that shared with me!!!
This is a must have if we are ever to move away from Dropbox. It's galling that part of our monthly O365 subscription ostensibly pays for this but we still have most employees expensing Dropbox Pro so that we can easily collaborate on Office files.
I conduct research for Office 365 team and know that most SMB + Enterprise customers have been unable to migrate users away from Dropbox, Box, or Google Drive because OneDrive client sync and folder management is tied to the heinous Sharepoint Sites library paradigm.
Desperately need this feature!
One drive for Business really needs folder sharing - both with other MS users and also as anonymous guest links.
Please OneDrive, I hate paying for a 1TB storage space I will never get to utilize, as well as paying for a DropBox subscription because of the lack of this feature.

Would love to see this happen but for now, all indications are: use sharepoint team sites for that feature. Onedrive team is far too enterprise oriented (read: fearful of security leaks) to make that a core functionality.

This is for my organization a killer feature - it's a MUST in a collaborative environment. We need to be able to sync shared folders as well. Most of our users switched to Google Drive where this feature exists. This feature is so essential to us that we even think about dropping O365 and move to Google Apps.

yes please update when this will be available it is needed
I like the new One drive for business app, except for the fact that i cannot synchronise folders with 5 other users in my company.
