OneDrive sync for "Shared with you" files
Currently the sync engine only syncs your own OneDrive files/folders. If you want to view files that are shared with you, you have to go to the online interface. Please consider making the OneDrive sync support files/folders that appear under the "Shared with you" folder. It would be great if a user could choose which of the shared folders can be synced (so they're not syncing everything that was shared with them). It would also be nice if, when sharing a file, you can choose whether or not to allow the file to be synced to other user's OneDrive.
For personal users, you can select a folder that was shared with you and click on “Add to my OneDrive”. This will cause that folder to start syncing. For business users, you can navigate to a folder that was shared with you, and click the “Sync” button. We don’t have plans to support syncing of individually shared files at this time.

Please take a look at Citrix Sharefile Sync Client. In preferences it's possible to check which "Shared with you folders" you want to auto-sync to your desktop client. It's a much needed feature in OD4B.
My company has to use Dropbox for Business because OneDrive does not support this very basic feature. I am unable to collaborate and work on the same projects with my colleague - how is that efficient?
I agree. Syncing individual "shared with me"-files would be great for document collaboration in our environment.
Currently we have a paid service of google drive just to allow us to have this feature, because Onedrive for business hasn't this simple feature.
In google drive we even are able to share inside our organization (google drive for work users) and outside or organization with user with Google drive free, just with a few clicks.
