Great news. I enabled this, this morning and it looks like it's working for us.

Thats great as we are just planning our migration from Egnyte to OneDrive and have just come across this limitation, how will we know when it is now an option?

Hooray at last... all of my clients in the finance sector will be very happy with this... I've been promising them it's coming for a long time now!

Awesome addition :-)
