Bring to OneDrive Business option "Add to my OneDrive" only available only at personal OneDrive
I want this feature in OneDrive for Business.
When someone shares a folder and gives you edit permissions to it, add the shared folder to your own OneDrive to make it easier to edit and work with the folder and its contents. If you sync the folder to your Windows or Mac computers running the OneDrive app, you can work with the folder offline.
Add a shared folder to your OneDrive
Sign in to OneDrive on your browser.
In the OneDrive navigation pane, under OneDrive, click Shared. Folders you can add to your OneDrive are marked Can edit.
OneDrive Shared folders
Find the folder you want to add, and click the circle in the folder's tile to select it.
Click Add to my OneDrive. Or, if you prefer, you can right-click the folder and then click Add to my OneDrive. Add shared folder to OneDrive

This feature is critical for us, and we are switching back to DropBox because it is not available on OneDrive for business. It defeats the purpose of the whole thing not to be able to share and sync automatically with people outside your organization, even worst is the fact that with a free personal account you would have this feature available but with paid account you don't. I was in shock when the Microsoft representative told me we couldn't do it. This is one reason why OneDrive is just an inferior solution compared to DropBox or Google Drive. The lack of this feature is just ridiculous.
This is critical to us. We will probably cancel the Office 365 subscription and go back to Google Drive only because this feature is not available on Office 365 for Business.
Is a shame, because it would be easy to fix.

Critical to us as well. I really don't understand why this would be available on the Personal version but not the Business Version.

It's critical to my working team. Because we cannot connect PowerApps to shared onedrive.
During the last Microsoft Ignite The Tour in Milan a member of the sharepoint product team told me it shall be released soon and has shown the feature to me.
Can you tell me when? Thank you.
Not having this is why we use Google Drive. It's pretty silly that this isn't an option.
Alberto Garcia commented
This is critical we are migrating users from G-Suite to O365 and it's really embarrassing that we're unable to do something with One Drive that has been available on GDrive forever. I just can't comprehend why the "Personal" free version would have a feature that the "Paid" business version doesn't. I'm speechless...
******* ridiculous that this is not available
Yeah i agree this is ridiculous. The only time I am going to want to share my folders in one drive is when I am using my school account. I'm going to just have to settle for box because of this.

This is such an essential feature. I can not imagine why it is lacking in the PAID version?!?
Marko Hölbl commented
This feature is essential. Google Drive or DropBox perform much better in regard to shared folders - OneDrive should follow one of these examples.
It's ridiculous that this feature isn't enabled for OneDrive for Business?
How does Microsoft justify LESS features in a PAID version of their product??? What makes it "for Business" if you can't use it for sharing items with your teammates?
It looks like there is a solution - see WinniL's comment in:
You need to use the classic version of OneDrive.

This is a crucial feature for people who work with other people. It seems to be a fundamental feature to making the Office ecosystem as enticing as possible.
Rhys M commented
this is ridiculous. why has this not been done yet?
Wong Cheng An commented
This feature should be a default feature.
Why do they keep closing these when it has not been done?
This option should exist this the beginning. All my colleagues request this feature which is essential. We have different teams working on same files or folders, and for files it's more convenient to have it sync with your computer, even if it was a share folder.
Georgiy Frolov commented
This is an essential feature to have. Currently OneDrive is split into two: items you own and items shared with me. It should instead have all files/folders under a single tree, or provide an option to make it so.
It makes the user experience especially difficult.
Couldn't agree more. This needs to be added. Simply a feature that is available that is available by other providers.
