Automate new user visibility to SharePoint sites

New Contributor

We are working on a migration plan from Dropbox to OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online. One of the main issues I'm trying to overcome is visibility. The main thing I'm seeing is auto mapping sites using this, 

Use OneDrive policies to control sync settings - OneDrive | Microsoft Docs

but I really like the "Add shortcut to OneDrive" feature more, since then they can get to the files easily regardless of what device they are on since it syncs the link to the folder in their OneDrive root folder. 

Is there a way to automate "linking" folders from SharePoint to the end users' OneDrive as if they had clicked the add shortcut button? 

I'm trying to provide a similar experience so it's not as big of an adjustment and seeing shared folders in your root OneDrive would be closer to Dropbox than having the separate section on their computer for these mapped sites.

I would also hope that this would help me avoid making a bunch of new Intune policies to automap folders. 

Any other insights for getting new users set up and going with SharePoint/OneDrive?
