Catalina Client with fresh Office install
OD Client logs in, but gives user almost no options in Preferences.

Especially no Files-on-Demand (just what I need!)

It is possible that my Fortigate firewall filters cause it, but why would be no display in interface?

There was a question asked here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/no-files-on-demand-options-on-mac/1e296ecc-1b...
which brought no resolution at all

Solution

It seems that interface does not display bits in interface if ie firewall connection blocks access to certain domains

 

Which was the case with my Fortigate firewall

 

Had top exempt all the domains as per:

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/required-urls-and-ports

 

Now FoD option shows fine
