    Even if you guys have decided that you're not adding Files-On-Demand on more versions of Windows right now, it seems like blocking the ability to vote on the feature (which currently limits some companies from broader adoption of SharePoint Online) would limit your ability to consider whether that is a wise position.

    Waiting for On-Demand to be available for Server 2016 so we can use it on our RDS server.

    Please make Files On-Demand available for server 2016 and server 2019

    Will files on demand be supported for microsoft virtual desktops so we can all ditch rds?

    Please bring this to Server 2016 which would support Citrix environments

    Please include the ability to view files in File explorer without necessarily choosing to sync everything in Windows 7. I know you have this capability for Windows 10 with Files On-Demand, but some of us are stuck with Windows 7 for now and would love to have this feature. Thanks!

    Head meet wall...
    So we looked into a temp alternative to this until place holders arrives on server 2016, looked like mapped network drives to the document stores would be a workable solution for now for what we needed.
    Followed the guide and it works ok except that the drive keeps disconnection after a while and you have to go into IE to open the webpage to make the drive work again despite the site being in trusted etc.
    OK that must be a bug.. NOPE its by design.. so another half baked solution that they don't want to fix.(4 years this has been a known issues)
    When will MS actually make products people want and fix things they ask for rather and stop removing features people use in place of ramming crud down our throats..

    Any update on this we have a number of client deployments on hold and other clients wanting this ASAP.

    I will reiterate the need for this on Windows Server. Ideally I would want it on Server 2012 R2, but I would be content with Server 2016. We too have a hosted desktop (Citrix) and OneDrive creates a challenge for that environment.

    Anytime you want to support this on RDS / Server 2016 would be great; it would be really nice if the various MS dev departments would ever talk to each other.

    get with the cloud bro. ...need FOD for 2016 server. I'm one of the least tech-savvy posters, and it's an obvious hole in your offering. We're already using Office, and Windows, and Edge, and Office 365. Just need FOD for a complete package. Don't think AMZN isn't at the doorstep of offering a competing product. Hurry up.

    You have been thinking about this for 10 months. Can you please provide an update?
