As it stands right now a user would have to

 

1) Log in to One Drive

2) Go to the sharepoint site and click on Sync

 

There has to be a way to automate #1 and #2 right?


My end goal is that the Synced drive is just there. Anytime they log in to any machine it is automatically added. Without them having to do a bunch of steps. 

Can this be done with group policy?

I've followed the steps here
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/use-group-policy#AutoMountTeamSites

But so far I don't see anything mapped anywhere. I did it on local group policy.

@NickMatveev2008 Hey, I suppose you would need to enable this first https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/use-silent-account-configuration as the other one you've configured starts when a user signs in to the OneDrive app.
