Hey everyone! Foundry IT manager looking for some clarification on OneDrive business, specifically on Mac.

 

For example - it appears that going to a 365 group page and looking at the main files tab and clicking on "Sync" should do something. It even asks

Hello Mike

"Sync" doesn't do anything on any computer.  At first I thought One Drive did Master/Slave replication, e.g. a no worries backup solution.

Is there a timeline for the return of placeholders to the OneDrive Clients?

Please when you do leave an option to turn off placeholders, I like it the way it is now just seeing a subset of folders. Should be choice both ways.
Rather sooner than later, especially now Dropbox has announced this feature...
That sounds promising. Hope the ETA will begin becoming shorter some day. I wait for the shortening to happen for several years already :)
We will have more to share later this year

I like this Varun...map drive to your OneDrive would be cool (for example, you'd have C:\ drive for windows; d:\ for DVD-ROM; O:\ for one drive). Awesome suggestion!

Can I expect to be able to sync "Shared with me" either in OneDrive Consumer and OneDrive Office 365?

That was fun! Thanks!
