Microsoft offered a roadmap for future features and additions for OneDrive for Business customers as part of its Ignite IT conference this week.
Microsoft posted the PowerPoint presentation from the OneDrive for Business panel on its Tech Community site (via WinBeta). The roadmap section of the presentation shows that Microsoft is currently previewing shared folder and sync support with SharePoint Online, with general availably planned for the fourth quarter of 2016. That quarter will also see a new user interface for iPad and Android OneDrive users, along with offline file support for Windows.
Looking further ahead, the first half of 2017 will see features such as integration with Microsoft Flow, offline folders for mobile apps, the ability to move files from OneDrive to SharePoint and much more. Earlier this week, Microsoft confirmed that the old "placeholder" file feature for OneDrive in Windows 8 will be making a return in Windows 10 under the name "On-Demand Sync", although there's currently no word on when this feature will be added.
