I know that two weeks ago, I was able to go to a Document Library and use an icon and/or select "Save for Later" in a menu to indicate documents that would then show up if you went to OneDrive. This was a feature that was going to solve a huge amount of issues for end users who do not want to use SharePoint and continue to use network drives.
However, that option has appeared to disappear across all of my SharePoint Online Sites. The only place I see a "save for later" is on pages from News Posts, which is not going to help.
I've found posts about this feature (https://office365itpros.com/2019/12/11/save-for-later-sharepoint-onedrive/), but I haven't seen anything about this feature being removed from use or something needing to be required to turn it on.
What's going on with Save for Later on documents in Document Libraries and how do I get this back ASAP?

@Bryan Petersen Is this feature permanently gone? It's odd that the "Saved for later" web part still has options to retrieve documents that are set as "saved for later", but there's no way to set a document as "saved for later". This seems such a simple and useful feature to just remove it this way.

@Bryan Petersen Interesting. I have the iOS SharePoint app (and I also tried the iOS OneDrive app) and I can't seem to find the option in any files to "Save for Later" in the Document Libraries. The only place I can find that option is in the Recent Files list on the home screen within the app.
It does seem rather odd that there's only one obscure way to mark a document as Saved for Later, and it has to be done on a mobile app. I've seen plenty of screenshots of the option being available on the web (desktop) in the past, so I'm not sure why it was taken away. It would be a very useful feature when combined with the web part for allowing users to "bookmark" documents for themselves and find them easily in a web part on a Home Site.
