    News from Microsoft!

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/blog/2020/07/01/introducing-new-onedrive-features-to-share-and-collaborate-across-work-and-life/

    Go to "Synced metadata support" and read:

    "Metadata adds structure and compliance to your files. Currently shared libraries with mandatory metadata synchronizes as read-only. We are excited to announce that in the next few weeks we are rolling out an update to the OneDrive sync app supporting read and write sync for shared libraries that contain required metadata. This will enable business users to edit content in their synced libraries while working from their desktops."

    Just learned today that all my nice libraries on the nice SharePoint project platform with mandatory metadata columns won't sync with write permissions to OneDrive. Holy Sh...!!!

    This is really ****. Why can Box.com do it and SharePoint not? I'm promoting SharePoint over Box in our Business but with such a drawback this will hardly be sucessful!

    @Microsoft: When will this be implemented?
