OneDrive for Business sync Document library containing metadata.

Problem syncing document libraries with metadata in columns. A lot of companies are using metadata columns in document libraries for search and other reasons.

    Any update on when this might be thought of or implemented, this is not correct that metadata is missing this blatantly when same is in document library or on the document itself

    Echo Anders Comment: The possibility of synchronizing libraries with required metadata and then have the synchronized files be editable is of great importance to a lot of users. It would be great to see this functionality implemented.

    Due this feature not being present I can't see how the company will embrace the use of SharePoint other than a glorified file server as offline access to our company documents is a must have.

    Please Microsoft develop a solution for this problem. We wish to roll out OneDrive to desktop computers but require SharePoint metadata to be retained

    Is this resolved yet? or can you tell us how to work around this? whats the point of sync if you cant filter the hundreds of files once they are on your local machine?

    This is a critical function!! We have several SP sites with custom required columns (content types), which we can not use in the OneDrive library right now.

    We have hundreds of Sp sites with custom mandatory properties....and a lot more angry users because with the old OneDrive for Business the sync was working...and as we are currently transitioning from the old OfB to the New client then this "limitation" is creating a great deal of frustration among our users!

    We are heavily using metadata and it is a non sense to prevent people to edit their file when they are offline.

    This is a critical function, the libraries need to not only sync but the files must be editable.
