    It would also be helpful if LAN Sync applied when different Office365 accounts within an organization are syncing the same SharePoint Library.

    It seems that if you (a) have a file synced (as read-only) and (b) have the "Use Office 2016 to sync Office files that I open" setting enabled (which is the default) then the Office 2016 client applications are no longer able to edit the file at all, even if the file is opened from the SharePoint web page. (Because it tries to save the file to the local synced folder and fails as OneDrive blocks changes.)

    It seems to be necessary to disable the "Use Office 2016 to sync Office files that I open" setting to be able to edit these files, which leads to a worse user-experience for those libraries which do not have secondary versions enabled.

    Whilst the ideal solution is for OneDrive to be able to sync these files, would it would be a simple and quicker short-term change for Office 2016 to automatically use the "Office Upload Center" for syncing for libraries that OneDrive can only sync read-only, so that I can still use the "Use Office 2016 to sync Office files that I open" setting for those libraries that do support it?
