Centrally manage / easier Sharepoint syncing
I find that trying to train users on syncing Sharepoint has been EXTREMELY challenging, more so than creating apps, configuring Sharepoint or even landing men on the moon for some reason... It would be handy to have a console where I can say right that bunch of users, matter what Device they are on (as long as it is Windows 10), they get these libraries synced. I have generally always got 1 site that everyone accesses (or the vast majority) and it would be good to just tick a box and whenever a new laptop is added, as soon as the user logs into OneDrive, It turns on AutoSave and then just has the central sync. Then in OneDrive (NOT THE SHAREPOINT SITE) the user can then tick the sites they want to sync and it just does it.
The major complaint I get is that it takes about 8 clicks and over a minute to start a sync of a SharePoint site, considering that I may have 5 or 6 sites (5 - 6 minutes) and potentially 100 users to do (10 hours). This would save many hours of training, setup and problem solving.
Hi Rob. If you map SharePoint Online to a drive letter instead of syncing you can configure all your drive mappings centrally and have them applied to users computers automatically. Check out Zee Drive http://www.thinkscape.com/Map-Network-Drives-To-Office-365-OneDrive/
