Enable the option to sync onedrive files from files shared cross o365 organizations when using the OneDrive next gen sync client.
Many customers wan't the option to collaborate with OneDrive cross o365 organization, and have the option to sync the shared files with OneDrive. Right now you are only able to sync files shared within your own o365 organization. Right now the only option is to browse to the shared link and access the files. Trying to use "sync" will result in an error in OneDrive (next gen sync client) as shown in attached file.

This is absolutely necessary !
OneDrive Team - you are nearly there. Well done on adding Sharepoint document library syncing to the latest OneDrive client. Finally we can retire the OneDrive for Business app. Once this feature above is added to the new client we can migrate all our customers away from Dropbox. How long will this take to implement?

This is terrible! We cannot collaborate between different companies using the super Awesome OneDrive sync solution. Now, this has been demoted to a 'just OK' solution. No point in Sharepoint, users are more intelligent than just booking in and out. Users need something more dynamic and I agree with Tommy, Dropbox is the solution. Pass me the abacus over please!

@tech, I get same error trying to sync from a sharepoint library from another organization when at the same time syncing files from my own organization.
This is what SharePoint Online document libraries are used for.

This is a must! Otherwise customers will use Dropbox

Would be huge for collaboration that occurs across/between Office 365 tenants!
