'Add shortcut to OneDrive' no longer includes site name in shortcut - just library name

Valued Contributor

I've seen what appears to be a change rolling out, in 2 tenants so far.


When adding a shortcut to OneDrive, it used to name the shortcut as 'library name - site name' - but now it is just naming it as 'library name'.


Has anyone else seen this?


This is potentially annoying for anyone who adds shortcuts to the 'Documents' library from multiple SharePoint sites - then having to rename all the shortcuts for them to make any sense.

To avoid the name "Shared Documents" given to the first shortcut created to the root of one site, before that I created a folder "Shared Documents" under the OneDrive folder.

But, there is an inconsistency - sometime after this workaround the user gets Shortcut name starting with "Documents " (+ name of the SharePoint), but sometime this is starting with "Shared Documents " (+ name of the SharePoint).

This is valid only for the first shortcut. All the others are created as before Documents " (+ name of the SharePoint).

I can't catch the rule.
