How can we improve OneDrive on Mac?

Allow OneDrive for Business Sync Client to recognize domain-bound Macs in the Enterprise

Allow OneDrive for Business Sync Client to recognize domain-bound Macs in the Enterprise.

Our company recently adopted the OneDrive for Business (OD4B)next generation sync client. As part of this adoption our internal Information Security team has set a security policy allowing only domain-bound workstations to leverage the OD4B sync client.

We are binding our Mac workstations to our corporate domain, just like our Windows workstations; however, Microsoft has told us that Macs are not truly bound to our corporate domain -- they are simply "associated" with our domain meaning our Mac workstations fall outside of this domain-bound security policy. This is resulting in several thousand Mac workstation owners from being able to leverage the sync client, like the Windows workstation owners can do today. As a result, Mac workstation owners are left with a very poor OD4B experience where managing content from OD4B must be done through the our internal OD4B website.

We are requesting that Microsoft update the OD4B next generation sync client so that it will recognize a Mac workstation bound to a corporate domain allowing Mac workstation owners to have the same sync client experience as Windows workstation owners.
