Shared folder with editing rights

Frequent Contributor

I see an odd behaviour with a folder that is shared with editing rights.


When I share a folder wth a colleague he can open that folder via shared with me.

When he clicks on New he only gets the option new folder and new link.










After creating a new folder I get al the other options.










And then I can create a new document in the shared folder.

When I close this screen and go back to my OneDrive and click shared with me and go back to this folder the options are gone again. I can open a folder I created and the options are back and I can create a document.


I have seen this behaviour in two different tennants Is this expected behaviour?
