Clear notification when there are sync issues or when OneDrive is logged out
So currently if OneDrive wants you to login again there is no prompt that will ask you to login again. People are only notified by the X symbol displayed on the OneDrive icon in the menubar that something is going on. People can work for a week before they even notice something is going on with their OneDrive. Same goes for sync issues. People need a better indication with what is going on with their OneDrive.

This is surely something that will help many users that we have know that they are not signed into OneDrive! This may help the saving of files to an unknown location and thinking that it's going to the cloud.

I'm surprised this only has 6 votes. This has surely already been the cause for loss of data.
My OneDrive Client disconnects automatically once every 30 days due to MFA being enforced on my account. When this happens there is no system notification whatsoever. The only visible indicator is a miniscule "x" that blends so well with the minuscule OneDrive cloud icon that you wouldn't notice it if you weren't looking for it.
Consider also that the OneDrive Client icon is only one of many icons appearing in the average person's menu bar. You might as well not have anything there to begin with.
We must have a system notification when OneDrive is disconnected. The notification should go off at least once daily and there should be options to increase or decrease the frequency of the notifications. I don't ever want to lose any data so my personal preference would be an hourly notification.
