This feature has rolled out for files (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/use-group-policy#exclude-specific-kinds-of-files-from-being-uploaded) and we are looking to expanding it to folders in the future.

The feature you implemented is by faaaaar NOT what we were asking for.
1. It needs to be user-specific. Noone is gonna ask admins to disable sync of their files in their onedrive directories. Every user has different directory layout and different needs. Admins would get crazy about those requests.
2. It needs to support folders too
3. it needs to be more general than just file types. A simple file/folder path comparison with a regex is enough.
I mean, you implemented an overcomplicated feature not at all meeting our needs, when all we asked for was a simple textbox in onedrive settings specifying the regex for ignored locations.
UI option for that is not a priority (for me) and can be added later.
