We are somewhat trying to make a seamless experience for our users when it comes to saving their documents on the network and when they go home and connect to their Office365 account and save a document to one drive.
I seem to be experiencing issues with OneDrive client that I cannot figure out. Maybe I am going about it entirely wrong.
Here is what I want to have happened. When a user is on the network, their MyDocuments folder is routed to their network folder so that I can centralize backups. When they open a Word document while on our network and go to save, it defaults to save to their home documents folder.
In order to avoid a user from having to know to save a document to a OneDrive folder if they want it always available, I simply created a Symbolic link which makes their documents folder automatically Sync to OneDrive online.
The problem I have run into is that if on our network they have a shortcut to a folder located somewhere else (such as another person’s documents folder), then when they are at home and go into OneDrive, all they have is a shortcut file which is pretty much useless because OneDrive cannot actually link back down to the original location of the other network folder. How can I get this to work?
