How can we improve OneDrive on Mac?

Stop forcing OneDrive folders to Favorites in the Finder Sidebar

Every time I reboot, OneDrive forcefully places a shortcut to it's folder in the Finder Sidebar Favorites section.
I'd like to have the choice of disabling this.

    I agree. This also happens every time you simply quit the app and restart it. Very annoying.

    +1 It is extreamly annoying that OneDrive forces me to have these folders in my favorites. I only use a few sub folders in my OneDrive and have absolutely no need for these top level folders to be in my sidebar.

    Every time I restart my mac (or just restart the onedrive app) onedrive adds my onedrive folder to my favourites in the finder window. How do I stop this from happening?
    If I remove the folder from the favourites, it just reappears after the reboot.
    So please stop making these "microsoft decisions" – mandatory decisions and lets make it our own choice.

    This behavior runs against OS best practices. Highly annoying for maintaining my custom OS environment.

    Yes please, this is horrible, especially as I can't rename my OneDrive for Business resulting in a streched Finder window.
