We agree 100% with the suggestion and are exploring ways to enable this. This represents a significant amount of engineering work hence we don’t have a schedule to share yet.Anonymous commented
Also agree this is needed. Right now, only link sharing works with external users, whether they have a personal MS account or not. This is cumbersome, having to save the links, reuse them and obtain a code each time to access the files. As part of our business we must share folders and files with external people and the lack of support in OneDrive for this is one of the reasons we are still primarily relying on Box for this purpose. Even Google does this.
Wanted to provide an update here: this is something we’re planning on doing, but don’t have a timeframe to share yet
We are thinking about how to add support for metadata views and editing in OneDrive experiences. Please share your thoughts in the comments section.

I'm really surprised OneDrive for Business lacks this. Makes sharing cumbersome on ODFB. I'm considering migrating a business installation from Box to OneDrive, but not having the ability to add files/folders shared with me to my list of shared items is a non-starter.
