I suggest you ...

Give us OneDrive For Business Context Menu options

The old Sync Client had right-click context menu items. For example:
1. OneDrive For Business > Share
2. OneDrive For Business > View in Browser

The new client removed these. WHY?!?! Please give us these options back and more. It is crazy to think users should go to the web to share a file/folder. Let users do it from the folder view directly. I would even take it further and put OneDrive share options in the Explorer ribbon.

        Agreed. The option to copy a link via the context menu was much more efficient than the new layout.

        Absolutely! The office environment is where this is most important because that's where multiple users need to open excel files online in order to simplify editing.

        Agreed. Please give me back the ezy handling options that the context menu's gave.

        These two items being not being available from the context menu is such a workflow killer. I want to share files and I have to go open SharePoint in a browser and find the right project folder. It's extremely cumbersome to do all this from within an Office app, especially if I'm sharing more than one file at a time.

        I can't really understand that this is not implemented already. This is such a fudamental functionality when working with shared files! Please add this option.

        Agreed. I use this functionality quite often and am missing it in the new client.

        One major issue is that if I use 'Get a sharing link' from within an Office application, that link defaults to only allowing people to view/edit within my organization. The majority of the time, I'm sharing with people outside of the organization. So, instead of having this context menu where I can easily click and grab the link in the web, I have to open the browser, open OneDrive, navigate through the tree structure to find the file that I already have pulled up in Explorer. It's a bit of a pain.
