“Another 8-9 months for Sharepoint Sync and Shared Folder sync is absolutely unacceptable Microsoft.
I've commented many times before but I really cannot understand how OneDrive for 'BUSINESS' does not effectively allow us to efficiently and easily access our shared files and document libraries. As a result I know that 90% of our users have documents in their own OD4B library that should be shared or in SharePoint, but it's too difficult and clunky for them to use the web portal.
I've been continually promising users that a usable and fully functioning sync client will be delivered since migrating to O365 over 12 months ago. I now need to tell them to wait another 9 months - thanks.
Perhaps Microsoft would be interested in our headhunting services so you could poach a few interns from Dropbox, Box etc to teach you how to do things, and at the pace a true tech company delivers to its customers in 2016!”
“Thanks for your reply Reuben.
Unfortunately I am unable to see the benefits of OD4B for any business without the ability to view shared files and folders. This is surely fundamental and one of the reason we opted for Office365.
I have nearly every user demanding that we go back to Dropbox because it is unworkable that they currently have to save all files locally and then upload/download to the web.
With all the feedback on the web of users demanding this fundamental business feature I am extremely disappointed that it is not a function of the (so called) Next Generation sync client.
It seems like it may be 'next gen' internally to Microsoft but not actually any of their paying customers...”
“I am confused whether this 'next generation' sync client will actually allow users to view and sync other users folders and files that have been shared? i.e. in 'shared with me'?
If not, then how is this any different and how is it next generation???”
