Shared With Me view should show files / folders shared from other organizations
Shared With Me only shows files shared by colleagues within an organization. If files are shared from another organize they don't show up under the "Shared With Me" view. The only way to access files shared from another organization is to know the direct URL.

Yes! Please make shared files and folders viewable in the "Shared" section by ALL people with full permissions like Google Drive does. It's crazy that everyone working on a shared document or within a shared folder can't view in their OneDrive. My project partner and I just wasted an hour looking for shared Word file expecting it to show up in her OneDrive until we came across this forum post explaining this weird oversight in Microsoft's design.
I would love to see this implemented. We got a client that gets OneDrive for Business Shares from several other companies. Really not intuitive that I don't see the data that is "Shared with me" from external users.

Shared folder from onedrive should to be show in the ondrive of other people whom you shared the folder but still this feature is missing.I think one drive needs to be work on it.

We have purchased Office 365 Business Premium license single user, we are facing a problem with one drive, when someone send a file it does not sync in "Share with me" folder.
This is a feature it has to come really quick.... the basic of sharing files around the world. can`t Believe that this is not implemented in OFB…..
Please give us this basic feature!!!
Not only is it surprising that this isn't already implemented, the documentation isn't clear at all on how this works. According the documentation one would think that all files that have been shared with him/her would show up under "Shared with Me" in both the OneDrive web app and the desktop apps (Excel, Word). It took a fair amount of digging to determine that the Shared with Me folder is only relevant to docs shared by other users within the same tenant.
As collaboration requirements across different organisations increases this feature become more critical.

This is also frustrating because if you have many Organization shares, and then you add in individual shares from others it turns into a jumbled mess. Other file sharing services don't have this problem and have figured it out, no need to reinvent the wheel.
