Extend support of KFM to Net Share location/File Server Share/
KFM was been introduced in the end of June.
It's a great idea to helping enterprise to dealing with migration user's data into OneDrive. however, in case it's enterprise, tons of company already protected their user's data via redirect user's known folder like document(mainly) or desktop to file server share\nas devide. but so far KFM is saying that not support network location. think about that how many company are using file share/nas solution to managing user's known folder in tradition way(similar to romaing profile), support moving user' known folder from UNC/Network location will help tons of "us like" to move our current solution to OneDrive for business.
And also make silent redirect of known select-able, not every company want to move all supported user's known folder together, not like current setup, silent move all three known folder, or pop-up to ask uses' choice. ask for user's selection is right, but option to make it silent setting is also IT administration needs.
I agree on having a path going directly from Redirected Folders > OneDrive. Redirecting folders back to their local machine and THEN migrate them over is not a good solution.

You can redirect your user profiles back to their local machines and then migrate them over to OneDrive, this is the method I used for the company, I work for.

We're moving from using file servers and folder redirection to OneDrive, so when I first heard about KFM I thought it would be perfect. Because My Docs, Desktop, Pictures etc are redirected to file servers and synced back, it doesn't work though. As Andy said, a massive benefit would be to redirect these straight to OneDrive.

I agree. Most organisations will be using folder redirection to manage where peoples documents, etc are stored. KFM is an amazing move in the right direction but what enterprises need is a way of migrating people from redirected UNCs straight to OneDrive. I think it should be an option in the Windows GPO as an option to redirect straight to OneDrive like it is a share at the moment. We will still have to think about how to handle desktops and favourites etc, but these too could still be stored directly in OneDrive.
