Agreed!! From Office Apps (Word, Excel...) you should be able to open "Shared with Me" files. Not just from web, iOs, or Android but from the desktop at a minimum. I've tried copying the URL from "Shared with Me" and through Word 2013, file, open, "Other web locations" & "Add a place" to no avail. :( I believe this would be a well received addition to the functionality of OD4B.
We’re looking at two related pieces of this:
1) For OneDrive for Business, enable shared folders to be added to the root of the OneDrive folder at all (like in OneDrive Personal).
2) For OneDrive across business and personal, enable shared folders to be placed into subfolders.
We appreciate your patience; this is significant engineering work given the architecture of the products and our diverse customer base, spanning individuals to small businesses to multi-national enterprises to government agencies. We aim to address this while maintaining our industry-leading security, privacy, and compliance commitments.
Thank you for the continued feedback.
