Add support for RDS and Azure RemoteApp
Please add support for RDS and Azure RemoteApp to the 'Next Gen' client. At least the following scenario's should be supported:
- RDS Session based Desktops
- RDS Sessoin based RemoteApps
- RDS VDI
- Azure RemoteApp
Both the User Profile disk and Roaming Profiles should be supported as storage solution within RDS and Azure RemoteApp. Since more customers are migrating to Office 365 the support for this client in RDS became more and more critical.
OneDrive is supported in Windows Virtual Desktop environments (currently in Public Preview) and non-persistent environments when used with FSLogix. More details here: https://docs.microsoft.com/onedrive/sync-vdi-support. Once Windows Virtual Desktop reaches General Availability, we’ll mark this one done.

Now with WVD going live soon, this really need to be an option to run it in online mode only.
WVD is running on Azure, OneDrive is running on Azure, why should I download files from OneDrive and cache it on FSLogix storage which is located on Azure FileShare.
Need the option to have the files forced to be in online-mode only, both for team sites, and the personal onedrive for business, and with GPO settings

The Universal app solution is still not a working solution, as the users can still choose to keep files offline, and could create some huge roaming profiles.
Please, please, please make the option to have the files forced to be in online-mode only, both for team sites, and the personal onedrive for business, and with GPO settings.

Definitely should be supported on Windows Virtual Desktop with multi-session Windows 10. I suppose default files on-demand mode would not cause much harm.
Absolutely agree, blocking the ability to sync a folder inside the user profile drive had to be something y'all actually added in... you've GOT to remove this restriction ASAP.
Further, this would likely go away for many RDSH admins if OneDrive client had an Online Only mode. I'd think most RDSH admins don't really want the ODfB files to sync at all on the local RDSH servers or UPD files, they just need the referential links to the files to appear.
We are very interested in moving all desktop/docs/pictures to Onedrive ("Protect Important Folders") but can't even start the process because ODfB redirected files/folders would NOT appear on RDS sessions like they currently do with our domain based redirection because the OneDrive.exe client will NOT configure to UPD locations. You are so close, but this is yet another huge miss. And NO, telling our users that their files are only available from the web portal is NOT an answer. Currently we redirect Desktop, My Docs, etc so no matter what our users log in to, their files are where they EXPECT them. This just breaks that mostly excellent, flawless solution.

Yes we need support for OneDrive on RDS servers. BUT it has to be able to run on online mode only. This so users cannot just sync all of ther OneDrive folders in onedrive to their user-profile on a RDS server.
So yes we cant to use the onedrive client on the server to browse around - and not the browser.

I don’t think Microsoft are actually bothered that their enterprise customers have fundamental issues with OneDrive. This and lack of Roaming Profile support are one and the same. They’ve pulled the same stunt with Teams. We lamented Google and Dropbox for installing themselves to LocalAppData and then MS start doing it!
Also add OneDrive client support for the new Microsoft Windows Desktop service in Azure
Support for VDI and RDS environment in combination with the new files on-demand feature would be very nice

As below, i have a few contracts coming up that will require moving to Sharepoint to decommission some old servers. Only thing holding us back is the OneDrive sync on the RDS environment. Syncing users with KFM and their Sharepoint libraries is a must so needs to be possible hopefully this year *fingers crossed*

Do you have any News/Roadmap?
We have a few projects where we would like to implement OneDrive for Business and/or Teams on RDS/Citrix
Any further information on this. We have multiple business that don't wont to move to O365 cause of the OneDrive.
You NEED! We have all other core 365 Apps working with XenApp 7.17 even Teams. So, get on it!
This is absolutely essential for us to incorporate a seamless end user computing experience across our physical and virtual infrastructure.

In a production environment as our's where we have O365 users on local RDS servers with roaming Profiles the support for the OneDrive sync client is much needed
Most of our administrative data has been moved to Outlook Groups and the users are crying for access through the file explorer
All settings must off course be manageable via Group Policies
We need this functionality.
