Enable sync client to allow editable synching of team sites with mandatory metadata columns
As at 23rd Jan 2017 the newly relased One Drive for Business synch client enables synching of Team sites BUT if any libraries have mandatory meta data or require check out, the synched folder/library is read only. This cripples collaboration by teams on documents. This needs to be fixed
This is something we’re looking at, no dates to share yet.
we have the same problem, cannot edit files sincronized by new onedrive client....we need a urgent answer!
one drive becomes useless with out this ability... checking out and checking back in is out only method of collaboration at this time.
Completely agree. The check-in/check-out functionality is essential to our business processes. This is a show-stopper for us.

Agreed this is an issue for our team

I agree that this is so fundamental to a collaboration on 'high stakes' documentation where revision and release status is critical, that I am amazed that the client was ever released without this functionality operational!

I second Mark's comment. This needs to be fixed, soonest!
This is critical for uptake and was broadly working on some libraries last week but not now. If my teams can't edit from their synchronised folders, they'll stop using the resource altogether and go back to having saved versions in their own folders creating versioning issues.
This needs to be fixed asap!
