    To accelerate roll out of this and keep things simple:

    Please first add the capability for admins to be able to SILENTLY IGNORE (skip over) files by file type (specific extensions) from being synced organization-wide via the OD sync app (SPO and ODFB). The sync agent just needs to carry on as if the file didn't exist and just not have any cloud icon beside it in Windows File Explorer, just like when you un-sync a SPO folder. You can put the admin control UI on the same page and right under the block file types setting that already exists in the admin portal. The big red flags and notifications that the sync agent throws currently make the block file types feature unusable for skipping over files that appear in their synced folders during every day use with various applications because it not only scares the users initially and unnecessarily, but they grow complacent and fatigued at them and the occasional actual real sync issues are completely overlooked and essentially hidden by the noise. That's not even getting in to the sync issues and delays caused by the unsupported file types until they are removed by hand manually or automatically once the applications have been closed.

    As already mentioned, the ability for admins and users alike to exclude certain folders by relative path is also very needed.

    This is a fantastic idea as not all file types need versioning. This is especially true as some desktop applications use a user's Documents folder as their temporary file space.

    Please extend this to SharePoint Online synced sites as well!
