Immediate syncing for shared folders on OneDrive Business
In every desktop file syncing app...ever...you share a folder with someone and it appears on their computer. I "share" a folder on Dropbox with someone and they get it in their Dropbox folder. I share something on GDrive someone and it shows up in their GDrive folder. Box, iCloud, the list goes on. We must have burned an hour of our time trying to figure out why clicking "share" on a folder didn't result in the folder showing up on everyone's computer.
Lo and behold, you have to open the web client, go to the folder, open the folder, and choose the little "sync" button in the top right. And then you have to confirm a bunch of nonsense after that. Come one guys.
roger that. it's overcomplicated for what's required. never beed a fan of sharepoint for file sharing. Also, why create a separate folder in my user directory for files shared with me?
This should be applicable to any new Sharepoint Groups or Folders created or available to the user.
Any folder shared by another OneDrive user should also be immediately synced to our OneDrive Folders.
There should be an option in the Accounts tab of preferences for us to choose which shared folders (sharepoint or user shared) we want to sync, not just our personal folders.
