Hello!

 

I know that i can add sharepoint directories to syncronize with OneDrive desktop client, i can do that with "Sync" button from SharePoint web site but only manual. The question is: can i add the same automatically?

 

The scenario is: i add a new users to Office365, give them licence, setting up OneDrive  for desktop and it already have selected sharepoint directories syncronize in it.

 

Or this can be added only a manual?

If you are using GPO’s you can do this:

Thanks, this is only for domain PCs, but how about users personal PCs? Is it possible to include somehow this setting in OneDrive profile, or Office365 policies, or something? I want for example user can be in any place at any PC, install OneDrive and get access to his sharepoint folder (which i want to add automatically to his OneDrive client).

That’s mean syncing documents to any Computer, which is not a good idea. I’m not aware of any solution to this also
