Syncing with an external or guest account
"Syncing with an external or guest account" is currently not supported by OneDrive - our company works extensively with external suppliers and we MUST be able to provide a cloud storage option with syncing by adding guest users to our MS Teams. Please add the function for Microsoft Accounts, added as guest to business MS Teams, to sync Team / Sharepoint files and folders.

Voted & commented on an idea addressing the underlying cause here:https://office365.uservoice.com/forums/264636-general/suggestions/31371565-allow-external-users-to-synchronise-sharings-with. Not sure if these could/should be merged & their votes added...
I don't believe this, We need to setup a team for project with different company, the only member within our company and share cloud based file.
A total waste, Please fix ASAP.
@Anonymous: B2B Sync only works for guest users from Exchange domains, so it won't work if they're using Microsoft/gsuite/etc. It should be able to work with all guest accounts IMO.
Isn't this working? https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/b2b-sync
Very hard for users to understand that this is not possible - especially when they're used to do this in Dropbox, etc.
We need it for private Microsoft Accounts too.

I think we also need this function for guest access provided from one organisational tenant to another. This is a hurdle to modern business collaborative relationships and drives selection of alternative collaboration platforms.
