Hello Everyone,

 

Can we sync the SP library metadata into the computer (or) Can we sync any additional metadata other than Name field.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Bhanu

No, sync client does not syn any metadata to your computer
Offline Metadata isn't supported, but if you open a document that's been synced with OneDrive from SharePoint that has it, you can set the metadata inside of the documents properties when online (assuming that checkbox to use office to sync isn't unchecked). But as Juan said it doesn't bring anything local. It's a big ask from a lot of people so hopefully we might get something like that someday.

Thanks @Chris Webb for the details

@Chris Webb  and @Juan Carlos González Martín  What does the below new update mean? Will we be able to have custom metadata in OneDrive? Do you have more details on this?

Not with sync. This is just the same quick link access on left nav in Onedrive web client where you can click to a recent SharePoint library. Difference is now you get full metadata and view support as before it was just folders and files listed.

Thanks @Chris Webb for the details

@Chris Webb - does this response change with the recent announcement of "Synced metadata support"
