Enable syncing of files across O365 organizations
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.
Thank you for all the interest in this feature. We have rolled out a public preview of B2B sync. For more information click here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/b2b-sync
"Boom! It's done"... Not really. This ONLY works with other users who are also in an O365 organization, which is often NOT the case for consultants. To be useful, this needs to work for personal OneDrive accounts too.
Do you already have a release date for Germany ?
Can you also add syncing to personal accounts? We don't always expect our clients to be enterprise.

Looks good and a welocome addition - can you confirm when this will be available on iOS and Android sync clients?

Syncing folders from outside organizations is must. We had this from 2015. It was very inconvenient to take it away.
No ADAL is a real issue. The likely users will have the full intune experience. Frustrating that a gmail account works but a fully qualified intune user/device can't sync.
Still getting the: Sorry, OneDrive can't add your folder right now
All the sharing settings are fully checked and ADAL is off.
Won't work, still the same issue.. bit sad for being SHAREpoint
Wonderful start but still a huge problem.
Disable ADAL gives other problems we can't accept.
Is there a timeplan on fixing this with ADAL on?
Anyone else receiving "Sorry, OneDrive can't add your folder right now / Please try again." even when all requirements are fulfilled from https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/b2b-sync#b2b-sync-requirements ?
Interestingly we can sync other external tenant libraries from same client / account, just not one specific tenant's SP libraries by some reason. This checklist also passes - https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/odfb/2017/02/07/sorry-onedrive-cant-add-your-folder-right-now/ so not sure what else could cause this error

You guys need to expand on this to compete with DropBox, Box, etc. We really need the ability for our resellers that are not on 365 to sync some of our files to their computer and/or the OneDrive app.
It's good to see that you pushed this out for B2B but you're operating in a silo as if every company is on your platform.
Good start. Would love this to also work with guest team members using individual accounts (trustees for a charity in this case), so not a whole other organisation but individuals with personal email addresses.
I've seen a lot of coming soon, shortly, 2019 but I would really appreciate a comment of when we can expect to see this. I didn't know of this shortcoming when switching to O365 and using Sharepoint/onedrive from Dropbox but now it looks like we will have to switch back.

Will greatly appreciate an ETA for this feature. No good way to collaborate with partners who need local file access without this.

I just spent a couple of hours trying to see if our business could dump our current Dropbox business account and use SharePoint sites instead. As with most other businesses, we have to share files/folders all the time, so syncing externally (both from and to us) is a must. I was genuinely surprised when I realised O365/SharePoint/OD cant do this already. Wow.
Any update on this?
This is key funcionality I've been waiting for so long now. So many other cloud storage services have it. Why don't you MS?

I'd definitely find this feature useful.
Please Update me if the function is in place - in the meantime we switch the users to Dropbox Business
Please let us know the dates.
This is something onedrive personal can do but onedrive for business can't.
It makes no sense at all that this feature is not developed yet.
Is there absolutely no workaround to this? We´ll have to forget about using OneDrive
